Wow!!!! All I have seen the past few days from the media and fans in this town is how they are worried the Heat are going to loose, and they look so bad, and blah blah blah.....Stop it already. They lost game 1 of a series to the homecourt team.....it happens.
As a die hard Heat fan I am in no way, shape, or form worried. The Heat simply did not play well, and the Bulls had thee players put up career highs.....yes CAREER HIGHS. That being said the Heat hung in there after being down double digits late in the game and if it wasnt for a lucky bounce of the ball they probrally would have won that game......the heart of a champion? Most definately.
It will be a tough series for the Heat no question, but when a team has three players put up CAREER HIGHS and you barely win the game.....If I was a Bulls fan, I would be a little worried.
Heat in six
I agree Larry, this city has no faith for not even their home team!! The Bulls are a different team this year and yet Miami came back to within a 3 point game until the refs took over. I dont mean to really say this but Bulls fans have no class at all after this one. The WHOLE game everyone was boooing and crying. Chanting "Posey Sucks" and Hinrich throwing his mouth piece into the stands.. get some class Chicago. Its game 1 people get over it.

It seems like the heat fans are looking and hoping for something to have hope for..... sure Deng had 33 but Hinrich who usually averages about 17 points a game only had 2 points..... so that shows great team balance....when someone doesn't perform well, others step their game up..... and not to mention the sloppy play of the bulls and many many missed wide open shots....we all know the heat should have gotten blown out.....and to touch on the bad calls.... every call was justified on replay...... so stop whining its only game one..... the bulls played bad too and still won..... stop asking for what you dont want and thats a defensive series, because the bulls have the better defense in the series...... im just being a realest.... I dont expect the heat to lay down by the slightest bit but look at the stats.... I believ shaq and d wade had 17 points each at the half and still were losing at the half...... shaq ended the game with 19, wade ended with 21, walker had 20, haslem had 11, so the heat didnt do all that terrible..... this will be a good series and the heat have met their match thats all.....
Great Post! I had a big post to write but i decided to keep it short and sweet. Stop making excuses Heat fan(more like front runners). Bulls in 5

Chicago has real fans unlike miami. They have been sold out for years through thick and thin. If this was the Heat 5 years ago, you wouldnt have bothered to even type all that bs. Of course theyre going to chant posey sucks, hes a dirty player. Ive been to many heat games since ive lived in FL. Heat fans are as rude as they come. People try to fight me because i cheer for my home team, why?
I changed my mind...Bulls in 4

1) The Heat played like crap.
2) The Bulls had 3 players with career highs.
3) The Bulls were at home.
4) The refs were pretty bad calling those flops.
5) The Bulls barely won.

Get over yourself Bulls fans. You have 0 allstars and you've been owned by the Heat for some time now. We crushed you that last game in the regular season. Time to get yer whoopin! I still say Heat in 6.

Bulls will play Thabo on Wade more .. he bothers him. No other Heat can really do anything. Shaq had a big game, but thats cool ... give him all he wants ... he tires quickly. How else can you explain 2 pts 1 brd in the 2nd half? Did the Bulls flopping zap ur energy and effort? Did the refs tell you to take charges? Ur 7 ft tall 400 pounds ... get a brd dude. Bulls are a differnet team this year ... too many weapons ... Noce, Deng, Gordon, Kirk, Tyrus, Duhon, Thabo, Wallace, PJ ... too many people who will have a good game and the others doing their thing. Bulls in a Magical Sweep to teach everyone chicago does what it do's.

I remember last year in game 3 of the championship the heat fans were booing their own team when they were down 12 points in the fourth quarter. Way to support your team through thick and thin. I guess that's the trait of classy fans. Your lucky that the heat had enough desire to come back on their own with no support.
Thus the formula for this year goes like this:
same crappy fans + heat have less desire to win + upgraded bulls = bulls come out on top.

the bulls have what the Heat are lacking,a core of good young players,instead of broken down old farts.
The finally realized payton can't play, jason williams is "handicapped"(terman al knee) Wade is 80% and should be rehabing for next year, walker is good one game and bad the next three. Eddie jones is still eddie we got rid of. Shaq is lazy, and 3 fouls were his fault. If he'd work hard all year instead of waiting for the playoffs he wouldn't be making dumb mistakes and missing shots. Haslem just doesn't shoot well consistantly. You've got too much inconsistancy & bad parts to win anything,it's been like this since the beginning of the year. the teams that have played well all year will be there at the end.

Unfortunately that is so. Miami fans tend to be bandwagoners. Im not one of them I believe in every player of this team. I like this team no matter what happens. I dont care a win or loss is to me. As for the rude thing.. yea I know but from what I saw yesterday.. wow just wow. Bull fans really know how to show their hatred! Haters! As for you.. Im guessing you are probably a Suckfin or Cane fan.. lol this aint no cane forum buddy you in the wrong place canes suck!!!

I don't agree with this post before me. Riley has Big Balls and will get this team playing like they should or else he won't show up next year.
After they beat the Bulls,who have "no balls" and the rest of the east and win the finals, they should get rid of these lazy old players and get some new ones. After all you can only squeeze so much juice out of an orange, and he's been yelling and screaming at these guys all year trying to get them motivated. Shaq has the biggest balls on the team and should assert himself and maybe rough up a couple of these unmotivated types that Riley can't seem to do.

I'm not a college fan. I'm a heat & dolphin fan ok buddy. I'm embarrased by the Heat this year and i like to express my opion and i've been right from day one,ok? I've said the should have retooled, they got all they could last year with the schleps and it should have ended right there, instead Riley and management played thier hand too many times by not improving the team and dumping,payton,williams,walker etc. and they're paying for it. I admire rileys faith and positive attitude,what else can he do at this point? He has to work with a bunch of schleps. He chose that path on faith,not with his brains. You could see cracks last year. Some of you people are too damn stupid to realize it's not the same team as last year. The never got a point guard,they passed on Iverson and decided who they had was good enough.
Meanwhile,thier trying to kill wade.
besides bieng old & slow,they're not motivated to win another championship.
Look how sloppy they've played this year and if you've read the paper at all,riley's been constantly on thier ass.
So freakin, WAKEUP!

it is said booing your team inspires them to work harder and well it sure as hell did as we all can see the heat beat dallas and we beat them in that game 3...ur concepts are flawed as the heat will beat the bulls...

Well let's give it up for the zebras (I mean the refs) who missed a critical goal tend call that should have favored the heat, gave Shaq (then switch it to Posey) a tech while both were on the bench cheering their teammate UD for an excellent play. What else? Oh I remember; not seeing the impressive "Oscar" win of Ben Wallace's flopping. Flops from four-time defensive player of the year; you're better than that Wallace!

SHAQ IS A FUTURE HALL OF FAMER IM SURE. BUT HE DOES HIS OWN SHARE OF FLOPPING AND DOING DIRTY THINGS. TIMES ARE CHANGING AND SHAQ IS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH IT ANYMORE. SO HE IS GOING TO START BLAMING OTHERS, NOW THAT IS TYPICAL SHAQ. GO LAKERS AND KNICKS.

i like how you guy's are all "Chicago fans are like this" and "Miami fans are like that" when D-WADE himself hails from Chicago, and grew up during the Bulls dynasty (so i doubt he wasn't a Bulls fan as a youngster). It's obviously very difficult to analyze things without bias getting in the way. Anyways, my point is that Heat fans suck and "POSEY SUCKS!"
