Monta Ellis will be a star for the Blue & Gold.
This was obviously a great win, but some of you guys are way more convinced that we're "fixed" now that I am. Go smoke the Wiz on Friday and we'll see.
Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.
I hope you all are watching Stu Scott and SVP on ESPN. They played all of Heat reaction in locker room and they basically laughed at them. They sided with the Pacers on all of it. LeBron did purposely elbow Roy. Anyone else would get fined or suspended for that. Scola is so clumsy that he missed LeBron's arm and "brushed" his nose. Mahinmi just lightly grabbed him and James fell to the ground like he'd been shot.
Hill actually does shoot poorly. Though it doesn't count last minute FTs, the clutch section of 82games shows that George Hill shoots well below his average. In 2012/13 he shot 68% from the line in close games during the last 5 minutes, and this year he's shooting only 73%.
Other than free throw shooting, though, he's pretty clutch.
My prediction: Solomon Hill is going to lead the team in Surprisingly Good Plays for the year. -10/29/2014
If turner beats out hill and mahinmi in camp then fine, but odds of that happening are slim.
Just one man's opinion, but I have been done with this clown about 2 months into the season. With Lance, its all about Lance. We have seen this movie before. Tinsley, Artest, SJackson...the dude is a million dollar talent with a 2 cent head.
Pray he doesn't screw up a title run, take it if it comes but still get rid of him. He is a hand grenade. Fools gold.
As my momma used to say, it will only end in tears.
Lance's ejection worked in that it threw Turner into the fire, and he has to have gained a lot of confidence in both himself and from his teammates for his late game heroics. However, I'm still not exactly happy with the Lance ejection. Would we be singing the same tune had we lost? Absolutely not.
Something I noticed during the game, dunno if anyone else caught it ... but after George Hill missed those last free throws, he made a motion with his finger like he was shooting himself in the head , acknowledging that he *****ed up by missing both of those..... Just thought it was kinda cool heacknowledged he screwed up...
Then to hear that missing those FT's bothered him so much, that he he couldnt leave, without first shooting those 2 free throws out on the court.. and making them.....
Much ... much respect for GH ...
We won the turnover battle 10-18.
Yeah, and if someone would have said Ron Artest would charge into the stands at the Palace of Auburn Hills and start assaulting fans, it would have been baseless...until it happened.
This is my fear: Wade, Chalmers, or whoever are going back and forth with Lance all game during the playoffs. Emotions are high. They get into each others' faces and start bickering, someone on the Heat gives Lance an aggressive shove (say, Birdman). Then Lance does something like one of those open fisted face shoves or something which the pussy *** NBA will call a punch, and he will get suspended. I'm not saying it's going to happen, but it's a scenario I don't have a great deal of trouble envisioning. Artest scarred me for life with this ****.
No one ever won with a team full of milk drinkers, just remember that.
I know the Pittman play well. Lance handled himself well then. I'm just saying he's a loose cannon. If something like that is going to happen, Lance is going to be in the middle of it. Just my opinion, of course.
