Boston Media doesn’t ask Jason Terry about the dunk (video)

What kind of soft crap is this? Nobody wants ask Jason Terry how it feels to be blown apart by a thunderous dunk from Lebron James?

If this were Lebr…never mind. I find this amazingly soft from the “tough” Boston Media. I label them tough because it’s one of those cities that you would think builds toughness right? Well, maybe except from the media, unless they are piling on someone else.

Watch the video (and more pics and gifs) and look at Jason Terry’s face. He looks like he’s ready to answer any question about it, but noooo body dares. Punks!

Lebron James destroys Jason Terry

Insert your own words to describe what Lebron James did to Jason Terry.

And of course Twitter exploded after the Dunk heard around the universe. Here are some of the better ones.

Rajon Rondo fires back at Dwyane Wade

You knew this was coming. We just had to wait until the next Boston Celtic practice to get the sound byte.

Two days after Dwyane Wade said that Rondo’s foul on him on the way to the basket late in the fourth quarter was a “punk move”, Rondo had his chance to fire back at the defending champion at the conclusion of Celtic practice on Thursday.

“I don’t think it was a hard foul. He sold it a little bit, and that’s basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole and I didn’t want to give up a layup. Simple as that. I didn’t yank him down or dirty plays that you’ve seen him play in the past, so that’s what it is.

Maybe Rondo needs to go back and look at this video…

Ten Things That Stood out at the Heat Season Opener

The rings have been distributed. The banner has risen. After all of the pomp and circumstance of the championship celebration, the Miami Heat players began the journey to defend their title.

They did it in typical playoff type atmosphere fashion, beating the Boston Celtics 120-107 in front of a sell out crowd at the American Airlines Arena. The Heat were up at by 19 at one point, but the Celtics fired back and came within 4 points near the end of the 4th quarter.

No Lebron James? No problem for Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade who stepped up their play in the absence of the reigning league MVP who suffered from cramps in both legs.

What stood out mostly on this night? Was it Lebron getting his first ring? Dwyane and Udonis getting their second? Ray Allen facing his former team whom he won a championship with 5 years ago? Kevin Garnett hating? I’ve created a David Letterman-esque top 10 of things that stood out to me.

#10. Heat Win- nothing to see here. Not that it was expected (yes it was), but it’s not always easy when you’re playing your Eastern conference foe. Plus this group of Heat players didn’t want to go out like the Mavericks did last year on their ring night, or like the 2006 Heat team did.

#9. Celtics fight back to within 4 points- Not surprising. The C’s will be ok this season. They are still trying to figure things out as any team would be with a bunch of new parts.

#8. Lebron’s Leg Cramps- It wasn’t exactly like game 4 of the Finals last year, but Lebron was obviously in discomfort. He left the game once only to come back and score 6 points, but then started to cramp up again in middle of the 4th quarter and this time left for good.

 

#7. Chris Bosh at center- 19 and 10. And yes he outplayed Kevin Garnett on this night.

 #6. Star Power at the AAA- Reggie Bush, Usain Bolt, Jimmy Buffet and Flo Rida. Only at an NBA game do you get a variety of star power.

 

#5. Rajon Rondo “punk move”- In the waning moments of the 4th quarter, Rondo’s clothesline on Wade was met with a smile and a shake of the head from the former finals MVP. Wade said it was a “punk move, but we move forward”. I agree. Let’s move to number 4.

 

 

 

 

 

#4. Ray Allen checking in for the first time- As soon as he got up and reported to the scorers table, the crowd went wild. Chants of “We Got Ray” rang through out the arena when he was at the free throw line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#3. Ray Allen acknowledging the Boston staff/KG’s cold shoulder- Classy move by a classy guy. The staff reciprocated his greeting, but Kevin Garnett barely…check that…didn’t look up when Ray gave him a tap on the shoulder. KG is getting a lot flack for not responding, but I would’ve done the same thing.

#2. Lebron’s smile while holding his ring- priceless.

#1. Ring Ceremony/Banner raising- enough said.

Jason Terry Learns the Boston Lingo

“9 inches of pleasure…”

Gotta love Jason Terry trying to endear himself to the Boston faithful. Check out this video from the NOC, as Terry runs around Boston trying to learn the accent and lingo of the city.

He’s already got the tattoo, might as well learn the language.

ECF Game 7 recap (photos)

I know that everyone has already moved on from Game 7 in Miami on Saturday night. No thanks to the NBA schedule, and the Heat not finishing off the Celtics in 5 or 6 games like many thought would happen. Media and sports host have already moved on to game 1 of the NBA Finals in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

But for a moment indulge me in my thoughts and pictures of game 7. It was my first game seven in the AAA (I was not here in 2005). The overall feeling I think a lot of Miami Heat fans had going into the game was confidence, with a side serving of nervous as hell. Questions were abound if Lebron could or would have to have a repeat performance like he did in the TD Garden in Boston (no). Would Dwyane Wade have a slow first half again? (yes). Would the role players step up at home? (yes). And would Chris Bosh be effective at all (hell yes!)

As they have done all season, the Miami Heat gave the fans, media and television audience a roller coaster ride. Falling behind in the 1st quarter. Being down double digits late in the 2nd, only to battle back within a few points by halftime. The offense at times looked stagnant. The players looked confused. Wade looked like the Dwyane Wade of the previous umpteen games in the first half…still being patient and waiting for the game to come to him. Lebron? Well after his 45, 15 and 5 performance in game 6, he looked human (that being 32, 11, and 7).

Fast forward to late 3rd quarter, it was like a tennis match. You score, I score. You turnover, I turnover. You defend, I defend. In the end, the Miami Heat prevailed. Call it the old legs of the Celtics or the masterful 4th quarter defense of the Heat, they prevailed.

Here’s how the Miami Heat faithful in the audience were feeling with about 6 minutes left in the 4th

And when it was all said and done, the ECF trophy for 2011-2012 remained with the Miami Heat

After the fanfare (or lack thereof) of the presentation, it was onto the podium. The first person was Boston Celtics Coach Doc Rivers. He is the personification of class and professionalism. I just wished some of his players were the same. He was emotional in defeat, knowing and thinking that this may be the last run his “Big 3″. He gave praise to the Heat and Erik Spoelstra and was gracious in defeat.

Speaking of class, Rajon Rondo shows none of that, on the court or off. It wasn’t until later that I found out that he (along with Kevin Garnett) left the court with about 11 seconds left and didn’t congratulate the Heat players after the game. And while he was at the podium, he gave one word answers and was very unfriendly.

Undoubtedly the player of the game, Chris Bosh came up big for the Miami Heat. Coming off the bench was something new for Bosh, but he was ready to do whatever the team needed. And in a strange sort of way, this may prove to be the Heat’s no so secret weapon against the Thunder in the Finals.

Finally Dwyane Wade and Lebron James address the media. It goes without saying that these guys along with Bosh will be key in a Heat victory.

For giggles, here’s a picture of the cart that is used to transport the players from locker room to media area. It’s a good thing these guys are close friends. And now we know why Bosh doesn’t do the podium at the same time as them. There’s no room on the ride!

Miami Heat organization sends a message to players

It’s a simple as that. Win or stay home in this case.

The marketing department and the Heat organization are sending a message to it’s players, coaches, and also the fans. Miami fans have been called everything from frontrunners, band wagoners, and a horrible sports town. While fans in Boston, who throw beer on teams opposing players, and who can’t appreciate greatness when they see it, get heralded as one of the best fan bases in the world.

Time for Miami Fans to stand up and show a nationally televised crowd that they can and will stay behind this team for the full 48 minutes. And more importantly, it’s time for Wade, James, Bosh and the crew to do what they came together to do.

Win a championship. Step 1 is to get by the Celtics tonight.

Stay tuned

Chris Bosh may return for game 5

Brian Windhorst of ESPN reports that barring any setbacks, Chris Bosh may return to the Heat’s lineup for Game 5 in Miami.

The Heat had won 5 games without Bosh, but after these two last games in Boston, it’s evident that they are missing his presence on the floor.

Kevin Garnett is averaging 20 and 10 minus Bosh. It’s not so much that Bosh could stop KG from going off, but that he could add some firepower to the Heat on the offensive side of things.

Stay tuned…
