We need a way to distinguish pit bull 1 from pit bull 2.

haha, that is awesome, that dude must have no heart. sixers have just given up, you would've thought pierce was on their team when he went into their huddle, they didn't even care he was there.
that kevin gamble shot selection wins games. bradley's contract is a disgrace. 32 million to the "defensive specialist" who gets destroyed by raymond felton(and everyone else)

The NBA is a soft league nowadays. I thought Jameer was just being a baby last year, but nope, apparently, Jrue Holiday is too. :nonono:

I've said it before, these 2 especially Bradley's getting into opposing guards' heads. And I love it! That's how defense is supposed to be anyway

Dwayne Wade, we comin for you!!!

I watched the game last night and thought Green did a pretty good job on defense as well. He is taller than LBJ and by mixing Green in with PP and other looks on defense, it should be pretty interesting come playoff time...

Thank god Bradley and Lee aren't rookies anymore, or it would be horrible. Given the reputation they have gained however, I am hopeful it's at least 90/10 instead of 100/0.

Any calls against the Heat will of course get the usual complaining on the court, complaining by their coach in the post game, etc.

Yup, it's really great that those 2 have built their reputation and making themselves known on our way to the playoffs. We could only hope for lesser calls and at least see 'em finish the game.

BTW, I can't wait to see the look on Wade's face when Bradley gets to him. He'll probably complain non stop and act all tough like he's untouchable or somethin'

There's no hope in beating the Heat this year, guys. Even if Boston or Indiana or SA or OKC proves to be the better team, the league won't allow the Heat to fall. They consistently get BS calls, even in the regular season. The Barea ejection wasn't the only bad call in that Wolves/Heat game. The refs took over for a 4-5 minute span in the fourth quarter.

I'm not quite the NBA fan I used to be because of the officiating. They used to just give the star players the benefit of the doubt on 50/50 calls. Now they go out of their way to protect certain teams and players. It's tough to watch.

Please, Joe, "say it ain't so."

You are raining on my parade. :0(.

The team tried to force a de jure passing of the leadership mantel this year from KG and PP to RR.

As KG is telling us and we can all see, this team is based on defense, and the real (de facto) leadership is being passed from KG to AB.

Long live AB!

I imagine that Holiday said it to Lee and Bradley jokingly.

If not, then yes; that is pretty pathetic.
