If you had never heard of any of the Pacers starters until a few hours before game 7 then I would say you shouldn't talk NBA... ever. You obviously don't pay any attention.
George, West, and Hibbert should be known by anyone who halfway pays attention to the NBA.
well then stick to college football, inbred...
No thanks, I'm not poor
Says the guy with a slice of fruit in his beer
Well then don't f*ckin ask stupid questions.
And what would that be? Asking why bunch of inferior players have no business taking the Heat to 7 games? Because that's the same question they were discussing on the post game. Here's a link to an article about it. Now, is there anything else I can teach you tonight before I go to sleep? Let me know
Seeing another Spurs team go deep into the playoffs is familiar and yet utterly jarringmuch like death itself. The Grizzlies, depending on your vantage point, are either a parade of redemption narratives or a
Inferior players ??? They have 3 all star players in their starting 5. they would have 4 but Danny Granger is injured. smh
Right. Because that matches up to Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Lebron James, the tattooed white guy, Ray Allen, and God knows who else is on their bench.
Hibbert, George and Hill are all extremely solid players. I wouldnt be surprised to see at least Hibbert and George on the All Star team next year.
Not to mention Hibburt is a force down low and the Heat dont have a big man who can match up (As I have been saying all year, Miami NEEDS a true big man) Bosh is not a C and Bird Man isnt good enough to start.

Hibbert > Bosh
George < Lebron
Hill - Chalmers
West > Haslem/Lewis
Stephenson > Wade (as a series)
Allen, Cole and Birdman > Pacers Bench
As you see, the talent level is pretty even. The Pacers are extremely young and up and coming. If they can keep the team together and add some vet's to the bench, they are going to be hard to beat if Miami doesnt get a dominant big man.

As I can see, you are a moron
Show me where I am wrong.... look at the stats, they tell all you need to know.
I don't need to look at the stats. Dwayne Wade and Lebron James are widely regarded as the best duo in NBA basketball. Their supporting cast is also considered to be the best. Boise State's QB usually has the highest passing numbers in college football but that doesn't mean he's the best QB. I feel like you should already know these things.
You obviously dont watch basketball, other wise you'd realize Wade was no where near himself most of this series. And the Pacers also beat the Heat in the regular season series.
If your really going to argue Hibbert isnt better than Bosh, your going to have to show me something to back in up.
Stephenson vs Wade, ya I can see how you'd argue that over the season, but not this series.
West also had a very good series, and Haslam and Lewis... just arent that good.
No one is going to argue that Lebron and Wade are a extremely good duo, but Wade didnt hold up his end of the deal this series.
And you talking about Boise and the Pacers vs Heat is just plain stupid.... they played the same teams all season...
If you're not going to pay attention I'm not going to argue with you. I never said anything about Bosh. And there is not one person in the world that would compare Lebron James and Dwayne Wade with any two Pacers. You can't compare their supporting casts either. This is not up for debate., Of course the Pacers players have had a good series. It went to game 7. That is the entire point of this thread. What in Gods name are you talking about?
I'm going to go out on a limb here an say you are under 18.
You say I'm not paying attention but your the one not supporting your case with any facts....
How can you not compare the "supporting casts"? I also didnt compare Lebron to anyone. Wade, yes but not Lebron. Pay attention.
If its not up for debate why the hell are you saying anything?
Btw, no I'm not under 18. But I'm going to say you dont watch basketball very often do you?
I'm going to give this one more try an then give up. You can't determine worth by stats alone. Stats are worthless Say a superstar player plays on a bad team and averages 40 points a game. Say another superstar player on another bad team averages 40 points a game also. If both players go to the same team they both won't average the same amount of points. Now they have to share the role and ball, thus seeing their stats decrease. That does not mean that they are any worse now than they were when they played for a terrible team. You cannot now say that since they only average 28 points each, that they are now worse than any other superstar player that averages more points. That is an asinine argument.
In football, like basketball, it's the same way. You do not determine the best QB by how many passing yards he has. If they did, then there would be no disparity in the NFL draft. There would be not question who the best QB, RB, WR, etc.. were.
The point of all this is, Lebron James an Dwayne Wade have not been as good as everyone thought they would be. When they came together, all on the NBA was abuzz at the partnership. They talked about how bringing these two superstars (and Bosh) together, would be the start of a new dynasty. But they have struggled much more than most people thought. They just got taken to Game 7 by a Pacer team that does not have one player that most analysts would include as a superstar player. They sure as hell do not have two or three like the Heat. This does not even include guys like the Birdman and Ray Allen who everyone knows too. If you still don't understand, then I can't help you.
D/A post of the week, if you haven't heard of Paul George, David West, or Roy Hibbert you're a complete moron..
I have 100% never heard of any of those guys before last night. Kinda like I cannot name you one player on the Miami Hurricanes football team.
That's b/c you don't watch the NBA; Paul George is a rising superstar. Why are you commenting on a sport you don't watch?
