I wonder who pushed for Wade?

Oh, absolutely right again!

 

I remember when Lebron was with Wade in Miami.  They won championships but Wade didn't play half the time during the regular season while Lebron worked his butt off.  Wade would then consent to play in the playoffs.

 

You're right, Lebron got his buddy for the Cavs, but you'd think he would have learned from his frustrations in Miami.

Series tied 1-1.  If you haven't seen it yet, watch the video of the absolute miracle save that the Caps goalie Braden Holtby made the other night.

 

The amazing thing is watching it in real time.  Watch the entire clip.  One of the best of all time.  @oldtimer

But it's still hockey right?

I don't know much about hockey but it looks like the guy with the puck shot it into the stick as opposed to lifting it.

That's why you let the director of player personnel make those decisions and not the players themselves.

If only there was an NHL Finals thread where hockey could be discussed and videos posted instead of on the NBA thread.  :rolleyes:

If we're being consistent, then it was Lebron who ordered Wade gone.  That was a good thing, was it not? :D🏀🗑️ (I'm trying to use all the new emojis by the end of the year )

Remember though that Lebron making the team decisions is only conjecture. While he does call the plays and runs/controls the offense the GM did all the trades. I'm sure Lebron would have traded for Durant, Curry, and the rest. My wonderment is why Cleveland let Durant go to the Warriors instead of paying him what he wanted. That move cost them the championship.

Sounds right, once he saw what he had.  Doesn't the King usually have ultimate authority?

Driving home from Ft. Wayne last nite trying to follow the game w/my cell feeds...  Typical Cavs game, but JR WHAT were you thinking or were you NOT thinking?  Still haven't seen the end but I knew they would be toast in OT.  GOAT or no GOAT?  Nothing matters now cause LBJ is still in Cleveland and he'll play wherever he wants to in the NBA in the future IF he leaves Cleveland.  Personally, I don't think he's going anywhere and you have to remember it was Game 1.  I think he wants to become a player/coach just like so many did years ago.  Who knows but...  it was Game 1...  :)

A couple small points. James and Jordan, play different positions and have slightly different skill sets. Jordan certainly was a better shooter.

I will never argue that Jordan wasn't the greatest. That doesn't mean James is terrible, what he has done with the Cavs with mediocre talent, is amazing. 

If we were picking an all NBA team and I had second choice (assuming Jordan was first ) I'd take James. I could always select Kobe Bryant as my 2 guard...

It doesn't matter if you're a a fan boy or a hater, you can't deny how good he is.  51 points in a finals game is incredible.

I had the opportunity to shoot him twice when he was playing @ Akron St Vincent & St Mary.  Most incredible player then as a kid and now as a man!  Look at what he's done for ANY team he played on..  On the horn...  Fade aways, K Love's long inbound pass for a turn-around  jumper from in front of the bench for the win, he KNOWS the game and USE'S it all in every way he can...  GOAT?  Who knows, he hasn't retired yet.  On to game 2 this year...  Bringing in some help now...  HAHAHAHA!!!  :)

I should have said when Durant was shopping around for another team the Warriors and Cavs both made offers.

I know what you meant but never realized they made a run at him.  Makes sense though, who wouldn't?

Game 2 tonight?

This song had a profound impact on me when it came out:

 

Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones
Got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo

Yes, I am the victim of a Basketball Jones
Ever since I was a little baby, I always be dribblin'
In fac', I was de baddest dribbler in the whole neighborhood
Then one day, my mama bought me a basketball
And I loved that basketball
I took that basketball with me everywhere I went
That basketball was like a basketball to me

I even put that basketball underneath my pillow
Maybe that's why I can't sleep at night
I need help, ladies and gentlemens
I need someone to stand beside me
I need, I need someone to set a pick for me at the free-throw line of life
Someone I can pass to
Someone to hit the open man on the give-and-go
And not end up in the popcorn machine
So cheerleaders, help me out

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)

Oh, that sounds so sweet
Sing it out
C'mon Coach Booty, Red Blazer, sing along with me

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
That be bad, honky
Yeah
I want everybody in the whole stadium to stand up and sing with us

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
Oh yeah, sing it out like you're proud

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
All right, everybody watchin' coast-to-coast, sing along with us
Bill Russell, sing along with us
Chick Hearn, sing along with us
Chris Schenkel, don't sing nothin'

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
Oh, it feels so good
Gimme the ball
I'll go one-on-one against the world, left-handed
I could stuff it from center court with my toes
I could jump on top of the backboard, take off a quarter

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
Leave fifteen cents change
I could, I could dribble behind my back I got more moves than Ex-Lax I'm bad
I could dribble with my tongue Here I go down court, try to stop me
You can't stop me 'cause I got a Basketball Jones
Here I come That's my hook shot with my eyebrow

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
Yeah, I could dunk it with my nose
I'm, I'm bad as King Kong, gimme the ball
I'm hot, I'm hot as..., I'm hot as..., I'm hot as...
Uh Uh, uh, uh, uh

(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
(Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
(Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
(Basketball Jones, Basketball Jones)
