    I think it's time we had a little talk.

    The Heat has proven inside and out, the last several weeks, but this week especially, that it's main purpose seems to be finding more and more clever ways to blow a game in the fourth quarter.

    Let's get these guys some sub .500 teams to play, so they can actually regroup and get ready for that inevitable first round one and down.

    Did anyone see Wade's post game comments? I'm paraphrasing but he said "People are finall getting what they wanted. The Miami Heat are losing games." Get over yourself! :rolleyes:

    Not really. This is a classic case of the chickens coming home to roost. They worked it to where they got three superstars on the same team, then made a huge spectacle of themselves. Proclaiming themselves champions before the season even started, and bragging about the upcoming 6 or 7 championships they were going to win. Made themselves look like asses in the eyes of fans not Miami based, particular LeBron. So, is it any reason that so many people were cheering them to fall, and fall mightily?

    As far as the hypocritical comment, tell that **** to the tourists. Wade, LeBron, and Bosh talked so much noise, and now that things are biting them in the ass, Wade's just making a play for sympathy with a tirade of poor little me/us. I'm not wavering for a second, and he does need to get over himself, man up, and actually get HIS team pulled together and prove all of us, that hate the Heat, wrong. Instead he wants to feel sorry for himself, and his situation. Which, is whatever, if he's going to continue to act this way, he's only proving a lot of us right.

    Is it to soon to say this experiment has failed? Yeah, probably, but it sure as hell isn't going to succeed with the gameplay they've put up this season thus far.

    Wade may be the last person to have the right to say anything about the situation they're in. Wasn't he the one who lobbied James and Bosh to Miami? Or at least had a huge hand in it. He didn't have to move from his team, it was his team first. Suck it up, be a leader, and lead them through this and get back on the right track. It's like they expect teams to walk on the court and say "We're going to let you win because that's what you want." No, they are saying "We're going to beat you and embarras you if we can."

    It's also like the Heat expect te ball to be magnetically attracted to the hoop everytime they throw it, it's not, it's attracted to their faces. :p

    I've always believed (and have told my brother, the brother who is gaga over LeBron) that Miami is a season (or 2) away from a title....................this recent bad streak of theirs confirms that. They need to be tougher on the court, need a deeper bench, and some size (A LOT of it) in their front court. Boston maybe on their last legs, and Orlando is always a question mark, but Chicago is right there. Wouldn't surprise me at all if they make The Finals. I'm not going to blast Wade so much (he's frustrated after all, is he going to make complete sense now? :p ), but on the whole, I don't feel at all for them/their fans (Miami is probably one of the worst NBA cities around) on this current predicament. They brought upon this themselves by signing there, and by staging that horrible spectacle at the American Airlines Arena to introduce Wade/Bosh/LeBron.

    I'd like to comment on how classy Miami media has been putting the sole blame of the Heat's problems on Bosh. Especially their blatant overlooking of the fact that Wade and LeBron have flat out bricked so many last second shots that would have gotten them wins.

    Stay classy Miami.

    To be fair LeBron and Wade have averaged like 30 points a game these last 5 games, so it would seem unfair to blame them entirely for failing in the last few minutes or so.
