Bam has a strained shoulder. He’ll need to stop being a whimp when it comes to shots and take that cortisone

Decent rally. Still a disappointing loss. I expect a better performance in Game 2. I like to be optimistic despite the blowout nature of this game.

Sixers in 4
Bucks in 5
Celtics in 6
Lakers in 7 ???

I believe. This team has no quit. Let's go HEAT!

I believe he refused all the fixtures of a farewell szn because 'who said I was done?'

He has no leverage tho, I think the big wigs will regulate(hopefully)


He’s making up for that low ball deal he took in Big 3 era.


Yeah he gave up millions, this is the way the Heat can do him right. He might be the first player to still be on the team in his late 40s

Ya'll are crazy with conspiracy theory. Lebron didn't loose that finals cuz he wanted to sabotage Wade. He choked under pressure, that's all there is to it

Not even worried brehs. We threw gasoline on the fire, yet still managed to contain the wildfire at the end. The Lakers are a good team. Feed them the ball and they become great. Once we stopped turning the ball over for ten minute stretches we had a ball game. Gonna be fun holding up that championship trophy after this.

Yeah. Gotta honor the sacrifice. Besides, if the 15th man on your roster is key to your success, then you're already in trouble. Old boys always miss the game after they leave. UD gets to still hang out and hoop it with the boys, lend his voice in the huddle and locker room, and collect the money he gave up so the team could win. This is the way.

So let me get this right... Miami starts an undersized center against a team who has 2 bigs bigger and as strong or stronger than him? I hope Spoelstra just decided to try going small just one game to see if it would work. Both Olynyk and Leonard can space the floor and hit 3s at a solid rate... I just don't understand giving up that much size to LA, it's suicidal.

Negatives: If Dragic is done and Bam compromised, this series is likely over
Positives: It's game 1 and Lakers shot above their 3 pt averages. That is likley to come down, the next games will be closer.

It's not looking good though. So whatever happens ppl need to maintain perspective. The season was already a success by getting the finals and it's set us no 1 destination in 2021. If we can get Giannis, we can contend for next 8 years. And he has to be thinking about that. Anything we get from this is extra gravy

not too sad about team performance, but the injuries suck. we're already the underdog, we don't need to put our d-league team (albeit a great d-league team) out there for the finals

And Spolestra REFUSED to send a 2nd big in there.
Miami was out rebounded 36 to 54.
