Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks on Christmas Day

The NBA finally broke the lockout and Miami Heat went to seek revenge at the hated Dallas Mavricks. The game was explosive, and the Heat look ready to prove they are ready to contend for the title. Check out what we have in store this year, the highlight reel is going to overflow…

By far below is the sickest play of the night … a quick steal from Chalmers leads to a fast transition break and a lob-pass to LeBron, who manages to find Wade mid flight for the easy bucket … amazing

It was a tough Christmas at Dallas, even Santa got out of hand, but what a great way to kick start the NBA

It was like a bad dream … a big guy punching me in the chest and splitting my rib cage open!

The Miami Heat big 3 frustrated with their 4th lossing streak late in the season

frustrated, confused, cold ... Miami Heat big 3 will they step up?

But enough about my nightmares , how about the current one the Miami Heat are having? 4 loses in a row to the big 3, Sunday’s collapse was against an impressive Chicago Bulls team that is playing at full potential right now. The lost was like a rerun of the last tow games against our eastern counterparts, lead blown and not enough structure to secure victory. The Heat reminds me of the economy lately … no relief in sight.

Eric Spolstra of the Miami Heat

What started out as a dream team has turned into a disaster at the worst time of the season when contenders solidify their squads, rotation, character, and most importantly position on top of the standings (Boston & Bulls are doing just that). El Heat and their second year coach Eric Spolstra are still tinkering with an ever confusing line up and there was not a single cohesive game played since returning from the all-star break or did we return from that yet? This team must grasp a sense of urgency in a hurry.

The Miami Heat bench

I still have no explanations as to why they cut Carlos Arroyo and what kind of plans are in store. In order for the heat to reach their true potential they must first simplify the game and use our core strength on the court at all time. What started out as a team committed to defense first, is very quickly losing when it counts most the end of the game. As of late the Heat looks more like a street ball squad than anything remotely close to a pro team. Clear the lane and go to work one-on-one (but more often 1-on-4) will not cut it in the post season. With the big three on this team Spolstra has to keep it simple on offense, and do a much better job at play calling. But when rotation changes on this team more often than I change socks, it is almost impossible to get into a rhythm. At this point of the year you must stick with your guys and live & die with your choices. Under this uncertainty Mike Miller is having his worst NBA season, James Jones is ignored, and Joel Anthony the faster more defensively aggressive center is sidelined by two aging big men Dampier and Illguskis. Not to mention Eddie House who brings more effort than talent, but still have not found consistent playing time to break out into a sixth man type role.

Dwayn Wade it is your team take over

Every new idea has its growing pains that you learn from and improve upon. If the big three are truly in this for the long run with a goal of building a dynasty, as I unquestionably believe they can and will, than ground rules must be set this is D Wades team point blank. The team is also feeling the absence of Udonis Haslem the enforcer, and no one has stepped up to fill this role. Every dominate team needs to have one, and it is a big reason why Miami doesn’t intimidate Boston, Chicago, and I hate to say it Orlando. There is not a single Heat player at the moment that is focused on squashing the opponent’s heavy hitters and retaliate for fouls against our stars. Anthony showed potential and got benched, Chris Bosh is too weak or scared to be that guy.

Despite it all this it is no time for panic just time to play basketball not Lebron, Bosh, or Wade ball. Getting back to plain defense-first mentality, a creative offense, and consistent effort should do the trick. Miami Heat basketball was a term used frequently during the heat 20 plus game wining streak after a 9-8 start, time to get back to their core.

Heat Players we know you are big fans of this blog, this video is dedicate to you:

You guys are like a bear with huge claws, your so Fucking money and the league is a little bunny lost in the forest … and you have these huge claws these fangs …. start running teams over NOW!

Blake Griffin dunking over New York Knicks center Mozgov

Like most NBA fans you probably never herd of Blake Griffin until it was too late. Be honest people… until this year no one in their right mind will go out of their way to watch a LA Clippers game, unless they played your team.

At that point it is already too late, Blake Griffin is in your building and someone is going to get embarrassed. We will let commentators color his skills with adjectives such as crush, destroy, stamped, postarize, but to us he will be the new Jammed Upon king in the NBA.

Look out people there is a reason why the sleepy Clippers are seeing 60% increase in game attendance, and artist put his notorious dunking skills on canvas. Here are Blake Griffin’s top 10 dunks so far, we will update these after the all star break, because the kid just does not stop Jamming Upon his opponents.

Street Basketball dunks

People don’t talk about street basketball anymore, for a minute there the sport crated such a buzz I think David Stern could not sleep at night. Its raw and so unPRO, and yet some of the dunks on this video will put to shame any professional dunk contest I ever saw. There are guys (yes, as in more than one) jumping over cars for a monster jam, boom shakalaka. Crazy!!
