    I imagine it is something idiotic about the officiating...

    A couple notes on the series

    • Nice to see "Mr. Game Five" come up clutch (aside of the three, forcing OT), with an easy layup missed, and the clutch FT's along the way, as well. :lol:
    • WOW! What a series! I can't remember watching an NBA playoff series with so much drama, and it finally has me believing that Lebron and company can raise the NBA from the dead.
    • Although the Cavs' play was sloppy at times down the stretch, they came up clutch with the plays needed to win their games, and I believe that winning close games will only be beneficial down the stretch.
    • Is anyone still questioning Lebron's clutchness? I don't think so. The guy made the plays when he needed to, and raised his teammates play along with his. Pretty remarkable for a 21 year-old...
    • Lastly, bring on the Pistons!

    I can't believe Amon Ones (No D, No J) just won this series for the Cavs.

    Gives a helluva interview though.

    I wonder what that pseudo-journalist Tom Knott is doing right now? Wait, let me guess--:sob: . I've never been so sure about anything in my life.

    As for Arenas, I'm sure that Sportscenter and everyone else who wants to anoint him as one of the best players in the NBA will focus only on the three at the end of regulation, while ignoring (1) the fact that Flip Murray decided to give him a totally uncontested look, (2) his wide open missed layup (although I'm sure there will be apologists who claim that there was basket interference or a foul by Varejao, like Brown was quick to do), and (3) the total choke job of missing two free throws that probably would have sunk the Cavs and forced a game 7.

    On a more positive note, if there is any doubt that LeBron is the best young player (if not the best player period) in the NBA, anyone making a contrary contention needs to have his head examined. A triple double, game winning shots, 40+ point games all in his first ever playoff series. What a leader. What a star. What a legend (already). I don't see Dwayne Wade doing any of those things. Instead, he's too busy faking injuries in order to make himself look like a warrior and having to scrape by an inferior Bulls team that had no business being in the playoffs.

    Legend? Maybe in terms of his overall story through HS and Hummer saga...but beyond that, no chance.

    I think you're being a little too harsh. Can you name anyone else who's been this good this quickly in the history of the NBA (he's 21)? I can't.

    A legend though? I think you are consumed with hyperbole. Is he is legit? Yes. Ready to be annointed as one of the legends of the league? Not in my opinion.

    I believe there was some player named Bird...Larry Bird. Ever heard of him?

    In the 1975-76 series between these two teams, does anybody out there remember Elvin Hayes going to the line and "bricking" two free throws in the closing moments like Arenas did tonite? I sure as hell do. I was "actually" one of the 300,000 fans at game 7 of that series, as a 13 year old kid. The rest is simply "Dick Snyder" history.

    The old Coliseum was such a blast. My uncle scored some tickets at the last second for that game, and I swear to God they were the last two seats sold for that game. If there is any human out there that was at both the game 7 vs. Washington and the scUM game in 2002 I'd love to have your input. As crazy as the crowd was for the Buckeye victory, I'd bet my nuts that the crowd noise and enthusiasm was no where near that after THAT game 7.

    Dubs,
    I remember listening to that whole series on the radio. Joe Tait was classic during the old Dave Bing, Phil Chenier, Wes Unseld and the rest of the Bullets vs the Bingo, Dick Snyder, Austin Carr and the Cav series. I was watching the last few minutes of regulation and saw Tait on the tv. I really wanted to shut it off and just listen. He must have had a blast.

    I agree with you, I loved the Coliseum. Even though it was in the middle of nowhere, it was a great place for a game.

    I wasn't sure why their were any Cavs players inside the 3 point line at the end of regulation. Let them have a 2, but put all the players just inside the 3 point line. I'm not sure Murray defense mattered, it was a heck of a long shot and a clutch one (his last) for Arenas. He makes the 3 point shot look so easy, yet misses 2 ft late in the game.

    I think the officiating was pretty bad for both teams most of the series.


    Take that Tom Knott, you f'ing hack. Maybe you can go write about what a stiff Albert Pujols is, now that the Bullets are done. Pussy.

    1 first-round playoff series win. Legends usually have a bit more on their resume.

    scarletngrey11 All right, all right, all right.

    I dont see where he used the words legends.

    I think Jordan went something like 1-9 in his first 10 play-off games.
