The only way for boston to win was to run and get to the basket before the Miami D got set up but it would end up being rondo 1 on 2 as the old guys just could not. Bosh hitting the outside shot was the difference as he pulled KG out and boston had nobody that could protect the rim.
I will look back on this as a success. We knew what we were getting three guys on the backend of their prime. KG getting hurt killed one year, perk going down killed the other one. This year they were not getting a title and fought to the end. If Miami does not win this year and Bosh is traded can we look back and say that Miami's Big three was a failure?
Lebron left without shaking hands against Orlando back in the day.
I had no issue with it then when he did it and have no issue now.
your right Bron did against orlando as espn discussed on the radio this weekend and was killed by media for 24 hours in 09..
If Miami TRADES bosh then they are getting assets for him and without signing him they would not have been able to get those assets.. Heat traded young assets odom, butler in 04 for win now with shaq and like Boston got 1 title, since it was their first it was totally worth it for me as a fan.. but it also led to them having worst record in league in 08. If they dont win it this year and trade Bosh for more more pieces it will not be a failure to me as the team went from no playoff series wins since 06 title to 2 straight finals and by trading Bosh would likely have a deeper team contending again next year. If they traded Lebron then yes it would be a failure. He was the one promising mutiple titles not Bosh.. If he fails to win at least 2 with the Heat I will say it is disappointing.. I would be disappointed if Wade was traded as well since this was really about him teaming up with lbj unless wade was traded for someone like D. howard where once again I would view it as gaining assets..
