  1. Solid post bud and wow, who would have thought that the Heat would be down 2-1 to the Pacers after 3 games. This is insane and this is why you play the regular season. Without Chris Bosh the Pacers have no mismatch on the front line and Roy Hibbert is just going to town, although he might have done that anyways with Bosh in the lineup. But it’s obvious that Lebron can’t keep playing the 4 because it’s just too tolling on him. He’s big but he’s not that big to do it game in and game out and be expected to put up MVP numbers. This series is going to go down to the wire likely and hopefully it’s a dandy. Also, you think you could take a look at my blog because I really want to know what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/its-your-fault-pat-riley/

    1. Thanks for the compliment bud.. The Pacers I can say are for real… They are sleepers in the East.. No one expected them to to the Heat… but now there in the drivers seat.. with all the momentum..
