I hear ya man. And I can't really argue with that. I never understood the hate for him, he's a complete player.
I don't think he was nearly as complete until recently. Anyway, I think a significant amount of the hate is really just his appearance. Light skinned black guys w...

Again, having solid production from players at diff positions doesnt make them a better team then a team where they only get good production out of 3 guys, like Miami and OKC. Say what you want about the Heat having a balanced squad, but they dont. Its LBJ, Bosh, and Wade. I dont think team...

I think officials actually have very wide latitude to make decisions with respect to how to penalize an unfair act - but I don't think that makes sense (because it leads to irregular enforcement and penalties which are unfair to teams who receive more significant penalties).
Anyway, I feel like...

I'm not implying. I'm stating an opinion of what should be done to enforce the spirit of already existing rules.

The HUNH (i.e. snapping the ball as quickly as possible) doesn't violate any rules nor is it unethical. It provides the offense an advantage, but it isn't an unfair one. If they don't substitute, the defense isn't going to get a good opportunity to substitute either. Both parties have the s...

I don't think it means much if you are a OKC fan or Heat fan but I'd be at least a little worried if I were a Pacers fan. They did just shake things up with a trade and they want home court against the Heat.
My bias is if OKC plays near the best of their ability they beat the Spurs and represe...
