You saw him more than I did, but I can't remember him posting with any sort of regularity in the playoffs last year.

I honest to god believe that lebron knows very little about the finer points of the game. I also believe that he doesn't think they're that important, cause damn look how great he is!

His ego needs a sniper shot.

I don't think anyone is arguing bosh's uselessness. Only the why.

I love ripping the guy as much as anybody, but I think a lot of it is him being used to dominating at every level doing it his way. Even at the NBA level he's able to be incredibly successful as an individual player...it's hard to convince a guy like that (not to mention his well-documented ginormous ego) that he needs to do more/different things.

About posting up, yea I agree it's all of those things. Not sure about Bosh though...and then you take a guy like KG, who also really doesn't do much work out of the post. Everybody seems to want Garnett to post guys up, but he likes taking those midrange jumpers. With him it might be all the energy he expends defending. I don't think he minds contact.

I agree with you on lebron.

As for bosh... look, Amar'e never ever posts up on the block. But d'antoni puts him in position to score. Doc puts KG in position to score. Bosh doesn't get put into spots where he's comfortable.

It's true that he did not post at all during the playoffs. There was a stretch in the regular season in which Cleveland had injuries to their bigs, so he moved to the four for a while. His moves there were pretty rudimentary - he just out-muscled the defender and then took a short hook shot - but they were effective nonetheless.

He has claimed recently that he has been working seriously on a post game; then again, he also claimed throughout his stay in Cleveland that he was working on his mid-range jumper, and that never really improved.

Gotcha... sounds similar to his post attempts now. They look silly.

Carmelo Anthony, the anti-Lebron.

It shouldn't have come to that, though. Bad, bad 4th quarter by the Knicks.

Letting up against a team like Memphis when you think you have the game on lock isn't good, but you can sort of understand it, even see it coming. Tonigh is a much different story. I'm very interested to see how this team will do against true title contenders, especially on the road. They had that orlando game but blew it down the stretch.

As for melo? Hey... that's what he does. He makes shots. Much like paul pierce in that his scoring ability is based on actual basketball skill, not just being bigger, stronger and faster than everybody. I love it.

I caught some stat on the worldwide leader this morning, I think it was shots in the last 24 seconds, either tied, down 1, or down 2...Melo is something like 21 out of 44 in those situations and is the active leader. Pretty impressive. League average is 30% or so and he's close to 50%.

For some reason I heard Clyde's voice while reading this.

We didn't blow it this time!

Good news everyone. The Heat can beat... the Lakers.

Now if we can just pretend the first three rounds in the playoffs mean nothing... championships all the way!
