    Chris Bosh Moving Picks

    I have been watching him play for a while and he always sets moving picks. I mean blatantly obvious moving screens. I know alot of people move here and there, but this man is dancing and running around like you can set moving screen. Watch for it next time you can.

    It's that way with a lot of big men. Kevin Garnett is just as bad.

    That is just one of the reasons I detest the NBA. There are no rules. It's like watching frickin all star wrestling the way the NBA is reffed. You cannot tell me that alot of those games are not rigged. My other pet peeve is palming. It's done ALLLLLLLLL the time.

    Watch for it next time????

    The whole league is a travelling, moving screen, palm the ball, hand check and grab menagerie.

    That is spot on. Oh and I mentioned this during the heat celtics series but watch how many times they switch or slide their pivot feet. You can actually watch a player catch a pass, take a step to set a pivot foot and then they will take another step, two steps wowowowowowow and hardly ever called.

    All of these are so very true in my opinion. "Pro hops", 3-4 step take offs are just a part of the game now? I spose it is like jaywalking now, you're not supposed to do it, but rarely enforced. I am not a Miami hater, I just see alot of Bosh, and Garnett as mentioned above walking around setting screens in motion.

    Yes, Palming is another one of those "jaywalking" violations. That is how alot of people cross people over now is by unfair advantages.

    I figured TC would chime in a little hate before long. Par for the course for Mr. Hate-a-lot.

    Re: Chris Bosh Moving Picks

    I used to really enjoy watching the NBA, but Miami is starting to make me resent it. Not only do they get the benefit of blatantly obvious incorrect calls going their way, but their players flop (and get rewarded for it) a ridiculous amount. I have no respect left for Dwyane Wade after watching him fly through the air like a trapeze artist this postseason.

    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-

    What a defensive display by El Heat in the 4th. It will be hard for OKC to win this series with a determined Lebron and the team D that they've been playing.

    Re: Chris Bosh Moving Picks

    There's not a pro sports league out there where the rules have become more "optional". (and that includes the most "flexible" call in all of sports...offensive line holding in football)

    Carrying the ball...traveling...the drama queen flops, constant beeching and whining about every call, etc etc. That's why many of us don't really like the NBA any more. Most of today's players couldn't even dribble the ball by 1980 standards...their hand is underneath and turning it over constantly. And the steps... good god, it's beyond ridiculous.

    But I guess that makes me a racist. (thought I'd get a jump on you predictable guys with an intellect the depth of a blowup wading pool)
