this has been a real frustrating finals to watch. durant despite what his numbers show has been real unimpressive. the last 2 games in particular. he was just standing by the 3 point line most of the game watching westbrook carry the team. wtf!

and harden is awol this entire series. im not even an okc fan and im frustrated as hell.

Durant's fear of foul trouble has turned him into a shooter rather than an all-around player. Harden's old school game isn't effective against Wade's defense.

After watching this series, I will never again in life think that just because a team dominates one team means that will dominate another. I'm in complete and total shock right now after the way OKC dominated the spurs. And some people say the Heat didn't have BOSH but how many of us still believed that OKC was still the better team???

Basketball is a game of matchups. Just because A>B and B>C, doesn't always equate to A>C.I'm sure you've been told this a number of times.

I know it;s just that the Spurs looked so damm dominant against the Clippers by the way they came back from 24 pts down and then took a 2-0 lead and lost four in a row to OKC. So how could anyone not put their money on OKC to win the Finals based on how Miami played in the East?

Miami is not a good shooting team. A zone could be very effective against them.

Miami is not a good shooting team?????? That's it I;m calling the eye surgeon so I can schedule my eye surgery for next week. The doctor will have to fix my vision because I thought I saw this below in the past 4 games

Battier hitting several open shots
Chalmers hitting several open shots
Cole hitting several open shots
Bosh hitting several open shots
Lebron hitting several open shots
Wade hitting open shots


Their only weak shooters from what I have seen is Miller Miller and Haslem. Or this could be because my vision is WEAK and need fixing. On hold now waiting to schedule my eye suregery

Battier has by far been the most consistent shooter this series. And he gets a lot of open looks because of Wade's and LBJ's kickouts from penetration. If you can limit their penetration, you can limit the number of open looks Battier gets.

Chalmers is not consistent.

Cole is not consistent.

Wade sure as hell ain't consistent from the outside.

Lebron has improved, but he's still streaky.

Bosh is the best perimeter shooter of the Big 3. But that's not saying a whole lot.
