LOL he thinks you have to be in the top 3 in the league at your position to be considered part of a "big 3" on your own team

The funniest part is Bosh is pretty damn good still and he's accepted a diminished role to play on a potentially great team. Not sure how anyone can knock him.

So by your theory to be a "big 3" is to be the three best on your team? If that is the case Charlotte Bobcats have a "big 3" in Gerald Henderson, Corey Maggette and DJ Augustin. Your theory doesn't work. My point is to be part of a "big 3" you must be an elite player not a semi-elite in Bosh.

Again, according to your definition.

I'm sure you were bothered by this when KG and Ray Allen were brought to Boston, huh?

There is no debate that in their prime the Celtics big 3 are better than the current Heat's big 3.

They never played together in their prime, so your post has no relevance.

I think Bosh fits in there perfectly. Better PER than Worthy and Rodman; compares decently with McHale on scoring and rebounding.

Okay you got a point. Bird, Mchale, and Parish or the Heat big 3? Magic, Kareem, and Worthy or the Heat big 3? Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman or the Heat big 3? Now be honest they are not in the same league? Here is more of a comparison 1993 Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson, and Dan Majerle. Now they werre at the current Heat's level.

Look how good Toronto was before and after Bosh left to see how good he was. Playoff team to one of the worst teams in the NBA.

Sorry, but I think your comparison to the Heat and the Suns' "Big 3" of Barkley, Johnson and Majerle is a real reach. Barkley was elite. James and Wade are elite, sure-fire Hall of Famers. Johnson was a very good PG, but likely a longshot to make the Hall of Fame. Majerle? Come on. Won't sniff the HOF (each of them played in three-all-star games in 11 and 14 seasons respectively). Bosh is closer to getting there than either Johnson or Majerle, and this comes from someone who can't stand James, Wade and Bosh; a Cavs fans who remembers Johnson and Majerle well when they played here and felt they were class acts.

But I'm a realist. While I don't put Bosh in the same conversation as James and Wade, he's an all-star caliber player (6 AS game selections in 8 aseasons) who stepped up with some big games when Wade was out, meaning he is still capable of putting up Toronto numbers when he needs to. He's fit in better than I thought after being the number one option for the Raptors.

Toronto is following Cleveland's strategy from last year. If you lose a superstar, why not lose em all and go for the #1 pick. The fans will give you a break for a year since you lost so much.

there is very little motivation for toronto to win.

Heat 107 - Blazers 93 Game ended late, real late. Double header last night Solon moved to Bedford District final over Maple Hts. Solon vs. Shaker Hts. Saturday for final, winner to Canton.

James and Wade both score over 30 points. And they outscore teammates 71-36, Wade had 22 at the half again. LBJ ends up with 38-11 reb- 6 assists- 5 steals. Wade 33- 10 assists-2 steals, Haslem his 4rth double-double, Bosh not in the bldg., his grandmother passed.

Heat now have 9 straight games won by over 12 plus points that ties an all-time NBA record. Heat play in Salt Lake tonight. Lakers Sunday.

That's incredible, thanks for sharing, Leroy.

Yo Hurri, did you happen to see that quote I put in here from that ESPN article? I wanted to hear your thoughts on it.

Who knew John Hollinger read Yappi and plagiarized?! Who knew he was from Cincinnati?!?!
Great, what is he plagiarizing? Me? The article was fine with me, and so he wrote Wade is a sidekick. Big deal. Who cares if he is from Cincy, or Paducah? Personally I love Cincinnati. Newport, Covington, I certainly "spent" enough time there.

No no. He is plagiarizing me and ep and DR and others. We said Wade was a sidekick. And big deal? You made a big deal when we said he was a sidekick. You obviously care he is from Cincy! Because he is just a Wade hater, obviously he is from Cincy!

Yup, fouled the jump shooter twice in the last two minutes and missed a free throw. Too bad because Lebron's 4th quarter was ridiculous.

James had great quarter and didn't take the last shot? He sent it to Haslem? Just keep coming after me guys and gals, evidently that's really all you care about. Sidekick? I don't even remember that one. I know you will bring it up with a quote.

Go Heat, but this thread is coming close to an end. It's not about the Heat, or Wade, or James, it's just about hate, trolling, internet bullying, and wasted time.

Now I see why young people kill themselves over internet hate.

What a shame.

Is this a joke? No one even mentioned you. You have McGal-level paranoia going on right now. You're attachment to Wade is fcking weird.

I feel that LeBron made the right play. Any shot he would have taken would not have been a good shot. He was double-teamed and was off balance going to his left. Udonis Haslem is a knock-down jump shooter from 15 feet, and he was wide open. LeBron made the right play, and if Haslem had made the shot, he would have been praised for it. Think back to Jordan's pass to Steve Kerr in Game 6 of the 1997 Finals; Kerr drained the shot, and Jordan was praised for the play.

This ongoing debate about who is going to take a last shot is idiotic. You don't determine a "last shot" purely by who you have on a team. Circumstances--particularly matchups--play a big part as well. Yes, a team wants that great player who can create his own shot, but that doesn't mean he has to always take that last shot. Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant are the best closers who have played in my lifetime, and they all had times when the last shot ended up being taken by someone else. Why? Because that person was both open and had the skill necessary to take that shot, and because the shot the closer would have had to try would have been ill-advised.

I remember a game that Bill Walton did some time ago. For the life of me, I can't remember who was playing. I think it might have been Game 7 of the Lakers-Kings in 2002. Anyway, the play-by-play guy asked Walton who should take the last shot. Walton immediately fired back, "Whoever is open!"
