I feel weird watching this.
I mean, obviously, I’m upset, but I’m no where as near as upset as like my dad or my brother, who I haven’t seen since the second half. This is kind of how all playoff games have gone for me in a while. Everyone around me gets upset; I get numb. I think 2003 eliminated all negative feeling for me; nothing compares. Nothing comes close.
If anything, it’s clear they desperately need a second scorer. Derrick cannot do it all, and he’s pressing too much. The nice thing about the Heat is that, if one struggles, there are two more to pick up the slack (and say what you what about Chris Bosh, he’s stepped it up in this series). Even if it’s just three guys and a bunch of nothing, it’s proving to be enough over one superstar and a struggling offense.
I’m writing like I’m all ready conceding the series, and I pretty much am. It just sucks that this season is going to end like this.
YOU CAN HEAT MEME NOW. BUT I WON’T STOP NOW.
Yup, still funny.
“Bulls win, Bulls win.”
That game was incredible. I can’t even stress how proud I am of them to come back after that first half. Especially Luol. He’s putting together such a nice little year and what a fucking third quarter and fourth quarter three. It’s been unbelievable to watch this team grow.
And I also loved how Chris Bosh had BS flop call and then ended up with a historically bad night. Poetic karma has been served.
I don’t know how many of my followers are ~basketball friendly, but this all needed to be said.
Awesome sports weekend completed:
- Bulls beat Miami, Derrick Rose goes toe-to-toe with Dwyane Wade and proves that he does, in fact, deserve to be among the elite class of players now in the NBA.
- Bears beat the Seahawks and are set up for perhaps the most epoc NFC Championship game in recent memory. Seriously, to either beat the Packers to get to the Superbowl or to get sent home due to the Packers - either way, I am refusing to leave my house for my own safety.
- And the Cubs briefly returned to me; although no games were sadly played, the reminder of baseball was just enough.
my face right now:
What goes around, comes around. Nice work. I’m glad my original idea was taken and transformed into this. Now if only Gasol put the same effort & determination into showing up for big games…
another one! hahaha
So, the 95-96 Chicago Bulls didn’t lose their fourth game until February 4th.
We have our fourth Miami Heat loss on November 11th.
This has been a basketball post.
