#### you Shane Battier, you ####### clown that pretends to play basketball.
I think the Heat may realistically be in trouble, if the Spurs can really match up with them head to head with the Heat's small lineup, and clearly owns their big one, then I don't see what the Heat has left other than hoping for epic Lebron and/or the Spur suddenly can't shoot... I guess those are possible, but twice in a roll the odds don't seem too good.
Popovich is the best coach that ever lived.
But Popovich is the best coach that ever lived.
This is pretty rich from someone who roots for Manu Ginobili.
Game 4 wasn't a blowout. It was a super close game that had a big run in the 4th quarter. I don't consider that a blowout.
He doesn't even try to make an honest effort first before giving up and resorting to the cheap tricks.
I actually agree with Spivey on this one. Not all flops are created equal. I mean, they're all annoying and Ginobili certainly does more than his fair share, but at least he's attempting to make basketball plays first. Flopping is a second option after his legitimate attempt to score fails. For Battier (and Derek Fisher is another), jumping in front of players and falling down is his #1 option on D. He doesn't even try to make an honest effort first before giving up and resorting to the cheap tricks.
It's over. It's always been over.
I'm legally obligated to hate Green since he's a Tar Heel, but I like his game. Also: does Kawhi Leonard ever show any emotion?
James/Wade/Battier/Bosh with either Allen, Miller or Andersen more
But you might be right about Battier, if he's just been in a shooting slump and nothing is really wrong with him. I assume Spoelstra sees something that makes him think there's more to it. It is a little weird.
Also: does Kawhi Leonard ever show any emotion?
I think Harden and Wade are clearly the top 2. Not sure what to do with Kobe. I feel like Jimmy Butler and Danny Green are the next group.
I had a post eaten earlier, but where does Danny Green rank for SGs in the NBA?

Now every columnist is going to take the columns they wrote after Game 2, switch each reference for the Spurs to the Heat and vice-versa, and re-run it.
That's basically what they have been doing for the last 3 weeks or so:
After Eastern Finals, game 1: The Pacers are doomed!
After Eastern Finals, game 2: The Heat are doomed!
After Eastern Finals, game 3: The Pacers are doomed!
After Eastern Finals, game 4: The Heat are doomed!
After Eastern Finals, game 5: The Pacers are doomed!
After Eastern Finals, game 6: The Heat are doomed!
After Finals game 1: The Heat are doomed!
After Finals game 2: The Spurs are doomed!
After Finals game 3: The Heat are doomed!
Danny Green is a better rebounder for his position than most of the guys tshipman listed, as well as being one of the best one or two defenders listed.
I do question how many of them could succeed like him in this role.
Danny Green career high RPG: 3.5
Parker is probably the favorite, but it would be hard to find someone with less impressive numbers winning the award in the past
Rondo/Green/Smith/DeAndre Jordan isn't going anywhere.
Rondo, Bradley, Green, Smith, Jordan would be a pretty insane defensive lineup.
It has always seemed weird to me to trade players for coaches. I guess I get it -- there's not that much freely available coaching talent out there, and if your window is now, you want the best you can get. But still, seems weird to me.
Why post per game stats for a guy who doesn't play a huge amount of minutes?
Look at rebounds per 36 if you want to talk about rebounding skill. His career rebounds/36 is better than JR Smith. Now, I think JR Smith has become much more of a physical type player and will continue to be better than Green at this, but game totals really punishes a guy that has one starting season under his belt.
He's averaging 34 minutes in the Finals. Seems to be handling it OK.
Danny Green's RPG in the Finals? 4.0
What they could really use is some waterbug PG who could defend other PGs well and was a sharpshooter from three...
In any event, if they can get a Rondo/Green/Smith/Jordan core, especially if they can somehow have Bledsoe in there too, I will be fairly excited. It won't win you a championship, but I don't see how they could position themselves to do that in the next year or two anyway, and such a team would be good, young, and leaves them a piece away if someone becomes available a la KG.
I'd tell Battier or someone to live in Green's shirt and don't even bother with the play behind him.
Does this mean Pierce is getting bought out? Or is he included in the trade (if so, how does the salary work)?
tell me why its stupid.
It makes basketball sense, but Boston probably doesn't want to do such a cruel thing to a guy who has been the face of their team for 15 years.
Simmons raised the idea of flipping Pierce to Cleveland for like the 31st and 33rd picks (19th if you're feeling lucky). Seems like it makes sense to me, tell me why its stupid.
So they'd give up 2 draft picks so they could pay someone to not play for them? Brilliant.
Wade isn't healthy.
