I have finally come to terms with something. For the longest time I thought my hate for the Lakers would never be surpassed by anything else in NBA basketball. The time has come. I have an unhealthy amount of hate for the Heat and Lebron. Beneath the logs, a flame sits to
crackle and heat and bake in my stomach, that's what it feels like when I watch the Heat, and when I think about the Heat.
I hate everything about him. I hate the way he walks up the court. I hate the way he talks to the media. I hate the way you raise your arms up like you did nothing wrong when the refs call you for a foul. Which doesn't happen very often. I wish I could find more profound words when it comes to James and the Heat. It's come to a point for me that watching them makes me hate basketball. I feel like their given so much freedom, and they are allowed to do whatever they like.
Did the refs have anything to do with the outcome in game 1? Not at all. The Pacers made a very poor mistake in the final 2.2 seconds in overtime. Paul George over played James, and Vogel perhaps made a mistake by not having Hibbert in there to guard the rim. I think the Pacers don't have much room for error, and losing game 1 could mean their fate. It was just one game, but when your that close to stealing a game, you can't lose that chance. The Pacers seem to know the Heat so well, and they have every advantage except they don't have a prolific scorer. But maybe Paul George can be.
What I saw tonight was a Heat team very weak. I see the Heat winning this series in 6 or 7 games, but what's next for them is more than likely a Spurs team that is similar to the Pacers, but that much better. The Spurs have a top five point guard in Tony Parker, and he can abuse the Heat. The Spurs still need to beat a very tough Memphis team,and the Pacers still have a chance. Even if I think the Heat win in 6 or 7.
