Pat Riley isn't a genius..........

It amazes me that some idiots actually think Riley is a genius because the 2010 offseason. It wasn't his genius and it had nothing to do at all with Pat Riley. It had everything to do with the star players and where they wanted to go. That is why the NBA lockout is happening because the players have too much control right now. They decided where they wanted to go.

Riley didn't land Lebron because money or genius. He landed Lebron because Bosh joined the Heat. Bosh was the guy who really decided where Wade and Lebron would go. Talks emerged about the possibility of a sign and trade with Bosh going to Cleveland. If that would have happened Lebron would be in Cleveland right now. If that would have happened Wade would likely be in Chicago playing for the Bulls while the Heat have one player named Mario Chalmers making K dollars. Riley would probably have lost his position and Heat would have probably turned out being the laughing stalk of the league.

Lebron and Wade made their decisions last while Bosh was the first to make his decision. When Bosh made his shortly after Wade joined him of course. Riley wasn't a genius at all. It had nothing to do with him luring them in with money or his talks about winning a championship. It had everything to do with the players decisons which ended up being the 2010 FA class. Riley is over-rated as the president of the Heat and as a coach as well. Who couldn't win championships with those Laker teams? Seriously? Why did the Knicks not win a championship under Riley in the 90s? He won one with the Heat after letting all those bench players left the next season they started off getting blown out by like 30 points. Terrible season which led to Shaq getting traded to PHX. Heat were going no where. Wade wanted out!! Talk about talentless teams....look who Wade had around him. Wade would have left Miami if Bosh or Lebron went elsewhere. No doubt in my mind. Likely destination would have been Chicago. Riley would have been fired if he wouldn't have been able to sign Bosh. Genius Riley? I think not. Terrible team after terrible team he put together. He has been critic for only coaching for good situations. Gave another coach an oppurtunity to coach a terrible team. What a lucky guy. LOL! Riley said to big 3 "I'll coach if you want me to". Nah, spoelstra is our coach after questioned about him coaching for the Heat.

Again: Riley isn't a genius!

I hate Lebron James.....why? Many reasons

Heat fans just don't get it. I have explained to you several times about this. I disliked LeBron James long before he made "the decision". I rooted against them every single game when he was on the Cavs. Do the same thing with the Heat now. I criticize James for a bunch of reasons. One I don't think he deserved his first MVP award.....I thought D-Wade was the MVP that year. Another reason I hate James......the guy never gets called for fouls like my favorite player Dwight Howard. Howard gets called for more fouls than probably any star in the NBA. Lebron gets the best superstar treatment of any NBA star in the league. In the East Finals the refs were against the Magic. Even people on these boards agreed with that. The infamous foul Lebron shooting the 3 and Dwight got a clean block and called a foul on it. Youtube it my friend clean ball.

Lebron also showed no sportsmanship after the game. Every single year the supporting cast was criticized. Not James at all. It was never James fault for a loss. It was either supporting cast or the coach. No blame for James. He is constantly praised. More ESPN coverage than Brett Favre. It at least feels that way anyway. Every team he is on they are always chose as the favorite. They never win despite all the talent they bring in. Kobe/James commercial favoriting him to have that matchup. How much more biased do you need to be? They bring in guys like Ben Wallace, Jamison, and Shaq. Still can't get it done. Win a ring for the King bs. Gilbert did everything he could to make James happy. Some feel he quit on the team in the playoffs. The guy loves the spotlight a bit too much.

Go into the summer.....he was more talked about than the NBA Conference Final games. Which is a slap to the face to everybody who is still playing. He is praised all the time for his defensive ability. I made a post about a year ago stating his defense isn't as good as the stats show. Which I thought was very true. All the blocks come against guards going up for layups or from a player who is being guarded by another player. I seen times in the playoffs he would guard the guards rather than the forwards. When he faces a guy like Melo the guy gives up 40. When you face an above avg scorer it isn't so easy is it? Melo is basically at one time the best small forward besides Lebron. Durant has emerged. Never really seen them play each other.

In any case he gets everyone talking about him in the summer. The guy is treated like a super hero/King. He is an arrogant ego maniac. I absolutely hate the guy. He comes on announcing his decision date to decide what team he is going to. ESPN was so annoying all day long. We got a big tribute show for Lebron. I mean it was every hour. It lasted like all week it felt like at least. We heard all the predictions and what not. The day of the thing hear about Wade and Bosh wishing him luck and so on. I was so annoyed by the coverage I was ready to turn the channel before he made it. He finally made it and decided to take his talents to South Beach. Getting all the questions out and what not. Than we get the aftermath coverage that lasts for days. Cav fans burning his jerseys and so on. Of course the Heat were the favorites like every year.

His team previously had the best regular season record in the NBA past two seasons. The talent was there in my opinion anyway. He shows no respect to his former teammates nor his former team. His arrogance will not lead him to a championship. Hope he never wins a thing. He is a piece of garbage. Spits in the way of everybodys accomplishments. Especially the scoring title that was won by Durant. Oh I could have won that if I wanted it. How much of a slap in the face is that? Disrespectful idiot. Than he goes on in interviews like we arn't gonna win one, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or even 7. We are gonna have a dynasty. Him and the so-called three Kings slapping every single NBA team in the face. Acting as if he along with them are better than everyone in the NBA. He expects not to be criticized? Look at these messages from my twitter page. Being superstar isn't all fun. You get payed more money than all those hateful people sent you. I'm sure all those millions of dollars he makes can cure his feelings. No good piece of garbage. Hate his guts. Go cry me a river James. You make more money in a year than any of us make in a lifetime. You don't want to be criticized don't act like you are all that. Don't disrespect former teammates and other teams in the NBA. You are not gonna be given a championship on a silver platter. You gotta work hard for it. Cavs did everything for you and you spit in their face. Refs try their best to give you a championship and you still can't get one. Hope you never do. That will be the worst thing that could ever happen in the NBA. No good piece of crap. Cry to someone who cares. Everyone is criticized. I am as well, but I would rather be criticized and be making the money he is making. Get all the fame with it as well. One of the most praised pieces of crap and still cries about it.

Anybody else find Heat's 3 funny?

I mean we hear all this crap about Lebron and Wade saying they are gonna use critics as motivation to win. I think it is funny to be honest. Their is more people picking them than doubting them. That is the funny part. I think where everyone else other than the Heat being doubted such as Magic and Celtics they will use it more as motivation than the Heat. Seriously guys you are the favorites. They need to get over themselves and play basketball. Leave your game do the talking. Not your mouth because you just been doing it all summer with the fans of Miami. Does anyone get where I am going with this? Do you agree or disagree or have any comments?
