    You clearly forgot that the Heat had the player who benefited the most from the rule changes that year on hand checking/physical play. Wade went to the line an ungodly amount of times and the Mavs players who were left on the court(nearly all of them were in foul trouble) didn't know how they were suppose to play defense on him. Wade set an NBA Finals record by going to the charity stripe 97 times in a 6 game series - that's a little over 16 freebies per game. The previous record holder was Shaq(93) who earned that many free throws because the Spurs were intentionally fouling him(Hack a Shaq). Combine that with Wade getting incredibly hot and you had the recipe for one of the great "superman" like performances in an NBA Finals series. It wasn't all about the refs giving Wade the series - he really played out of his mind and the Mavs played like a defeated team(no heart)...but Shaq was most definitely NOT the reason for that title. Riley was more of a reason for them winning than Shaq was.

    I'd really like to see what your list of the top 10 players looked like coming into this season. Because Bosh was definitely not in my top 10.

    Riley was a pretty good player in his day. :)

    F Chrish Bosh, F Dwyane Wade and F Lebron James. Chris Bosh wants to play on Twitter during the offseason and stuff now Wade and Lebron playing this weak a$$ punk he deserves it. Dwyane Wade was never humble. Lebron James is just overrated.

    [rquoter]When the locker room first opened to reporters after the game, Stoudemire and Anthony were bantering and laughing about players on the Miami Heat crying after their loss earlier Sunday to the Chicago Bulls, with Stoudemire fingering Chris Bosh as the watery-eyed one (although Bosh, when asked by reporters in Miami whether he had cried, said he almost had but did not).

    "I heard Chris Bosh was crying tears," Stoudemire said.

    "Tears?" Anthony asked.

    "Yeah, tears," Stoudemire replied.

    "Wait 'til I call him, man," Anthony said. "I'll be like: 'What are you doing?'"[/rquoter]

    OMG, imagine if JVG is their new head coach... They will be unstoppable. Their offense has the potential but with Jeff's defensive minded impact, the Heat will be almost unstoppable. They have 2 incredibly gifted defensive player in Wade and Bron. Plus with JVG putting it together, their defense will be elite, plus having 2 of the top 5 scorers in the NBA will make them unstoppable.

    But I hope JVG doesn't become their head coach and stay commentating with ESPN. I love JVG when he's commentating. Him and Mark Jackson together are like music to my ears. Plus I love how JVG usually brings up the ROckets when he's commentating and showing us some love.

    What wade said is true we dont want the heat to win... They were claiming victory before the war even started, chicago f***ed around and droped hiroshima on the heat. So yea the world is happy that you guys are loosing. Im not a hater im simply stating facts. With all the hall of fame power you guys have, no game should be close. It should be no competition every damm night. But because the 3 musketeers wanted to plat grab a** with each other the heat didnt think the deals out very well. You give 3 guys close to max cotracts and leave the nickles and pennies for the rest of the r****ds who think old torn players and 3 superstars are going to get it done. Well you should of thought about that before the 3 amigos decided to screw everyone else over.

    Bosh was a top 10 player heading into this year based on their 09/10 season

    1) Kobe
    2) Lebron
    3) Wade
    4) Durant
    5) Dwight
    6) Amare
    7) Deron Williams
    8) Carmelo Anthony
    9) Pau Gasol
    10) Chris Bosh

    its funny how the roster evolves for Lebron and yet he has the same problems as last year. Supposedly "inconsistent shooting" and unreliable "2nd and 3rd options" on offense or a defensive stopper on defense or post defender, bad coaching, the excuses are endless.

    Fact is most players get worse once they become Lebron's teammate and their stats and overall play goes down.

    Excluding what he has done this year, I think I would have Derrick Rose on this list before Chris Bosh at the beginning of the year.

    He was injured last year, but you left off Chris Paul. That already pushes Bosh out of the top 10. Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash are both better players than Bosh as well. Bogut, Duncan, Roy, and Joe Johnson also made an all-NBA team, something Bosh did not do.

    Again, it's a huge stretch to say that Bosh was a top 10 player.

    Chris Bosh would be at the bottom of my top 10 list. I have seen Dirk choke countless times in the playoffs for him to be top 10. Steve Nash is too old now, but he would be top if he was a few years younger.

    Even if you do not agree that Bosh is top 10 prior to this season, I think everyone should agree he was a top 20 NBA player in Toronto.

    I had a dream last night that Miami lost in the first round 4-1 against NY....probably wont happen in real life but I hope NY can put up a good fight before Chicago sweeps them

    Adrian Wojnarowski (sp?) or Wojo for short (not to be confused with Gene Wojiechowscki (sp?) ) wrote an article about this on Yahoo and makes a really good (but obvious) point that the struggles with the Heat are because LeBron wants to do all the things that Wade was used to doing. Apparently, D-Wade was warned that something like this could happen if his team signed LeBron but he ignored it. An excellent point about this is that Derrick Rose really wanted Wade to be his 2 guard but didn't really want LeBron on his team.

    For the Heat to turn this thing around, they have to let Wade be the guy to take that last shot, not "King" James. I mean after all, Wade is the one that has a ring not James - why is he ceding stuff to him any way? :confused:

    Isn't this from when Wade was injured and dislocated his shoulder? That's not cool man.
