Anyone know how long LeBron's been flopping for? I wish more people would call him out on this, at least Jeff Van Gundy did today. Too bad I couldn't find video of the other flop in the same quarter as well. They were almost back to back it seemed. Why does he need to resort to this? Especially a man of his body/size who can just bulldoze anyone in his way?


Take away the bad officiating, and the Knicks still shot horribly, couldn't stop LeBron, and it all went as expected.

Maybe some of that bad shooting was due to lack of calls and maybe some of that 'couldn't stop LeBron' were the refs constantly putting him on the line. Shouldn't exactly be any coincidence either. Up until the refs decided to take over the game, it was actually relatively competitive, but once they got involved, it got so ridiculous that New York was put into such a hole they simply felt demoralized and defeated already for the most part.

& calling out the bad officiating isn't hate, it's fact.

Well, I called it out myself, so I doubt I was calling it hate.

Blaming the loss on the bad officiating is hate. The Knicks weren't going to win this game, no matter what the first quarter score was. They were growing exhausted from having to stay in the game trying to play defense and going after all of their missed shots, the lead went from two to double-digits within a minute or so (not exactly a minute, you know what I'm saying)...and most of the bad calls, the game was still in reach. Miami just put their foot on the pedal and drove them into the dirt for a 30+ point lead out of nowhere.

New York has no legitimate offensive strategy, and that's why everyone in the media keeps saying that Melo and Amare can't play together, and you saw it tonight.

Without Jeremy Lin (who still wouldn't win them the series), the Knicks are a horrible passing team, and the only way to beat a team like the Heat is to pass the ball around. If you're a bad passing team, and you try to dish the ball too much, you're going to turn it over 24-25 times, like New York did.

A lot of those bad calls had nothing to do with the 24 or so turnovers, and you aren't going to win a game by turning the ball over that much, against an elite team, in the playoffs.

The Knicks definitely didn't help themselves with their poor play but it's gotta be difficult when the officials are inept.

Pau Gasol is GONE

On NBA.com it says that Chandler has flulike symptoms and Davis is still dealing with his own back problems. They will both be game-time decisions.

Let's hope Melo shows up tonight.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

This is going to be another blowout loss for the Knicks, don't be desilusional.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Predictions on the FT disparity for tonight? I doubt it's as bad as game 1 and I doubt LeBron by himself gets more FTs than the whole Knick team again. If these things though do somehow happen again, New York's got no shot whatsoever.

Melo is just carrying the Knicks. When he starts to miss a few they're done. The other guys better get going.
