Everyone has an opinion on the Heat right now. Everyone is trying to figure out the problems, the issues, the crying. Some people just put it better than others, like Chris Webber did last night on NBATV following Miami's loss to Portland.



Webber's best point -- of many great ones -- is that when you have this much talent, you get this much criticism. He also says that the team should go to Erik Spoelstra and say, "I think we should be quiet now." Webber's point of "shut up and play" is well put because he's right, all the high school pep talking is getting old. All this "we're brothers!" talk, all this "we're Warriors!" talk and all this "stay together, trust each other!" stuff are just words in the end.

(I like how Kevin McHale just said "Yeah, yep, uh-huh" like 40 times while Webber went off. He just wanted to be part of it.)

And this line was awesome, even though I'm not totally sure what it means: "That's the league man. You driving a Ferrari and you want to tell me you have an extra tire in the back?"

Yo XSGame, I think u overanalyzed C Webb's ferrari statement.

What he meant was that in this league players get injured (tires get blown), so u replace it with a spare tire in the trunk (bench player) and continue rolling.

Injuries r unavoidable, every team experiences them, and they are as much a part of the game as dribbling, shooting, and pre determined outcomes.

First of all, as a Michigan graduate I have suffered through 10 lousy seasons because Chris Webber took money from an agent causing the NCAA to put Michigan on probation.  This is the first year they have the beginnings of a team since then.  So his credibility with me is very low.  That being said, I am totally enjoying the Miami losses.  However, the best recent line was not from Webber; it was the one from Stan Van Gundy that this wouldn't be such a big deal if they hadn't declared that they would win multiple NBA titles - before their first practice together. Now everyone wants to beat the Heat.  And I hope they don't win again.  LeBron is a coach-killer.  Go Celts!

He said for them to shut up and play.  Enough w the generic basketball speeches.  Everyone heard those in the 6th grade. 

Shut up and play.  Win - and all this bad hype goes away.
