Andy needs to leave his mom at home at get a real coach. It's unhealthy for a grown man to have his mom so intimately involved in his life. Just look at the way he acts on the court-- like a spoiled kid who'll never grow up.

It's rubbing off on Cahill too. Are they so clueless?' +1" Yeah. It's a shame the ESPN boys couldn't get up for the dream matchup of Fish v. Gulbis at the Mecca of tennis in Los Angeles.

Posted by Erik 03/20/2010 at 01:53 AM Why does any player who comes across as distant or business-like is seen as "evil"? It's not like Soderling is smashing racquets or trash talking opponents. It's like Davydenko's "problem" of being too "unsexy" for fans to like. Who cares? I know the media has to create characters to make things interesting for their bland copy, but let fans decide who is and isn't likeable. ------------------------------------------- Well said.

. he does think the heat are hot and heavy after stoudemire though Posted by: adrian | January 28, 2010 at 12:55 AM ---------------------------- That's good news and bad news. Bad because I can't see how we'd get Amare without giving up Beasley.
"The thing about it, and I understand the interest and the panic from you guys out there, three or four years from now, nobody will even remember this, that he was going through a growth period now," quoth the Spo. Translation: Beasley is so talented that not even my retarded coaching, stupid buzz words, and my preference for a much less talented Power Forward can prevent Beasley from being a star.
Does anyone know what the Heat's record is in games decided by 3 or less? I'm just curious.
I do think Wade should have tried to take lebron off the dribble rather than call over Haslem for the pick and pop. But I agree with Josh that this loss is definitely not on Wade--missed free throws and all.
So I ask: have you EVER seen NBA coaching as bad as tonight? Posted by: josh | January 25, 2010 at 10:22 PM I don't know... I've watched for a really long time now. I mean George Karl back in the day had his moments of stupidity, I've never really liked him. But Spo shot the team in the foot with those Beasley-Haslem-Anthony frontcourts, and the lack of any secondary scoring option near the end to adjust to the triple teams. And this has happened like 3-4 times now against the same teams with pretty much the same players. yeah I think this probably takes it. Posted by: Chris | January 25, 2010 at 10:26 PM ------------------------------- LMAO
That said, Hewitt is Australian TOAST right now against Federal Express. Could go 4 sets. Posted by: Slledge | January 25, 2010 at 03:38 PM -------------------------------- Idiot. I only asked you about your predictions so you could open your mouth and show that you don't know the first thing about tennis. Mission accomplished. Fed stomped Hewitt late last night. Any real fan of tennis who has been following the AO would know that, poser. What you were watching today was a replay. And wtf does "it could go 4 sets" mean? If Fed is dominating why wouldn't he win in 3 sets. Moron.
Superbowl in 2 weeks? May the Mighty Lord Bless the Australian Open. Posted by: Slledge | January 25, 2010 at 03:10 PM ----------------------------- What are your predictions for the AO, Sledge? Do you think Davy can upset Federer?
trent dilfer must be better than marino... Posted by: doctorb | January 23, 2010 at 11:41 PM ------------------------------ To be fair, Dilfer was a glorified ballboy. If you replaced him with just about anyone Baltimore would have still won the Superbowl. D Wade on the other hand almost singlehandedly carried his team to a title.
"So Beasley foils Antawn Jamison on consecutive post-ups, is 3 for 4, but is yanked with 3:48 to play in the opening period in favor of Udonis Haslem. Does the rotation always have to be followed so strictly?" ------------------------------ Lmao. Ira is slowly starting to think like the bloggers here. =)
Larry Brown had the Bobcats all over Spo's crummy offensive sets.

in the article it says that Wall has a 43 and a half inch verticle... if thats true, he's got about five inches on Wade at least Posted by: Chad | January 19, 2010 at 01:22 PM ------------------------------- Nate Robinson also has a better vertical than Wade.

Your bitch mother and grandmother should stfu. Posted by: Slledge | January 13, 2010 at 08:42 PM ----------------------------- Where's the basketball post, retard?!
Classic Ira. Calling JO'Millionaire CRAP. Posted by: Slledge | January 13, 2010 at 04:29 PM ------------------------------ What is a circle jerk, Sledge?
Classic Ira. Calling JO'Millionaire CRAP. Posted by: Slledge | January 13, 2010 at 04:29 PM ----------------------------- At least JO is not unemployed. His taxes pay for many social projects that benefit degenerates like you.
Posted by: josh | January 13, 2010 at 03:54 PM --------------------------- Yeah, you pretty much hit it on the head.
"We're all disappointed, angry," coach Erik Spoelstra said, "but we also have to keep perspective and get back to the connection and purity we had just 72 hours ago, after the Phoenix game." LMFAO. What's with the pseudo-spiritual, new age language Spo is constantly using. I expect to hear that garbage from a stoner at a Phish concert, not from an NBA coach.

"A: Actually, I think the Heat believes it can convince Udonis to stay, because of the hometown factor. I don't think the team is in any position to let him go this season, with its spot in the playoff race remaining so tenuous." ------------------------------- Oh God, if the Heat re signs Captain Mouthpiece I hope they trade Beasley. I can't stand seeing the kid not get minutes because of Spo's love affair.
The Clippers announcers just slammed Spoelstra on his in-game adjustments. Posted by: Ohshz | January 10, 2010 at 05:35 PM ---------------------------- What did they say?
I missed the Spurs game. Did we look that bad? Posted by: cruicruise | January 10, 2010 at 05:32 PM ---------------------------- It was bad but not this bad. The only thing that might've gotten worse is the coaching if you can believe that.
