Simple. Atlanta is a disgusting filthy city. Their Basketball team reflects that. Have you seen what sits courtside at their games? It's like the Atlanta Jail inmates were given a furlow for the game.
Josh Smith is another wanna be and acts like it's his first time at the rodeo. Their sports teams have never won anything.
I think it's funny that they are so stupid as to give a team extra motivation. If the Atlanta coach had guts he would have fined him or sit him for the 1st quarter of tonights game. But then again nobody in that organization or city has amy class.
I concur completely. But the Heat still smell up this joint like a bowl full of floaters.

Anyone who watches basketball knows at the end of a close game Wade will have the ball in his hands. If the opposing team is losing they will be forced to foul. Since Wade always has the ball, his free throw numbers are inflated by the fact that they are purposely fouling him. He averages 7-9 a game. In a close game easily 4 can come in the last 30 seconds. Every team has a player that's free throw stats are inflated.

and. on the note of Wade celebrating after a game. He made the game winning bucket in that game, any human would be excited and not be calm. The people you should be worried about are lebron and crew posing like fools before a game, or shaq mocking them. They are professionals not Harlem Globetrotters.

posing like fools? so what is the difference between showing off and jumping around on tables after a win, or doing something as a team before a game? at both points in time your adrenaline is running, your blood is pumping, your excited, and in the cavs case THEY ARE ARGUABLY THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE! how about wades stupid band-aid on his face? talk about harlem globetrotters, he looked like an idiot.

I agree the bandaid on the face became a fashion statement and wasn't needed, and that was stopped by the NBA immediately. I also agree that the cavs are one of the best teams in the league this season, but i'm just saying theres a difference in having your adrenalin pumping before a game, and having a pre-thought out gag like taking a fake team photo. Adrenalin pumping would be them doing a group huddle, high fiving each other, not playing around taking fake pictures. Are they auditioning for acting jobs? It's just very immature. For example, NFL players do a touchdown dance after a score, they don't do a dance before the game.

One more quick point, Mario west pumping his chest after one Wade missed shot, was a little uncalled for. Yes he can be happy that he made a good defensive stop, but at the end of the 2nd quarter of a blow out? Not so sure about that, maybe a good defensive stop at the end of a close game when it matters most

Nfl players do a dance after simple tackles sometimes...the cavs pregame is nothing but them having fun, that's all it is...people who don't like it are either haters, or 75 yrs old! And that's is also just a way of them getting ready to play, I could see if they were doinh it at center court, but they are doing it in their llittle bench corner, they are doing it for the cameras and the crowd, it has nothing to do with theeir opponents.

What is Lebron or Kobe's level?? They dint do anything when they had a below-average team either. Last time they played in the finals,only Wade won the championship and Finals MVP...Go back in your hole

well lebrons level is MVP....wade won the finals 3 years ago, its a new day, lebron has gotten better dramatically, what wade is doing this year isnt anything that lebron cant, or hasnt done...lebron averaged less than 1.7 points per game less than wade, but wade shot the ball 2+ more times per game then lebron...lebron shoots 49%, and 35% from three, you do the math and see who comes on top if lebron takes as many shots. then you look at assists, d wade has 2 more assists then lebron during the regular season, BUT HE HAD 31 MORE TURNOVERS!

Who gives a shi* to your stats. May be Lebron had a better season,but,Wade handled the ball more and of course that results in more turn-overs. Regular season MVP means nothing if you dont win it all,let Lebron win it all first,until then Wade-1,Bron-0

so you say "who gives a shit about your stats" but then you justify one of them for wade? you say he only had more turnovers because he handled the ball more? well why didnt he have alot more assists then? and i agree with you on the title and regular season MVP...but remember, lebrond hasnt had shaq yet in his career, this year is the first year where he has had ANYTHING RESEMBLING A SUPPORTING CAST.

rev.al,i know u are talking About t.i. and we here in the atl also tAlked about him sitting At courtside because everyone in my section thought that he wAs in jail too..but,As for this being a disgusting city,U WISH!!!
THE ONLY THING THAT MIAMI HAS GOING FOR IT IS,PALM TREES,BEACHES,AND SOMETHING TO SMOKE..THATS IT!!!

WHY DO U THINK THAT PLENTY OF YOUR ATHLETES/ENTERTAINERS HAVE HOMES HERE??

D-WADE/YOUR FORMER BOY SHAQ/JASON TAYLOR/RICK ROSS/PRETTY RICKY MEMBERS/ AND A GENTLEMAN WHO REPS YOUR NEW DOLPHIN PAT WHITE WAS ALREADY GETTING READY TO DO HOUSE HUNTING IN ATL BEFORE THE DOLPHINS DRAFTED HIM..MAYBE WE CAN SELL HIM VICKS HOUSE,LOL...

U NEVER,EVER,NEVER,EVER-EVER-EVE R! HEAR OF ANYONE BUYING A 2ND HOME IN MIAMI..DO U??
ITS EITHER A HOTEL,OR TIMESHARE..NEVER A HOME TO LIVE AND RAISE THE FAMILY IN..UNLESS THEY HAVE A CONTRACT OBLIGATION TO ONE OF YOUR TEAMS...

I LIKE YOUR HEAT..WADE JUST NEEDS MORE PLAYERS AROUND HIM..AND,OUR BENCH IS OUR HIDDEN X-FACTOR..WE GOT 3 GUYS OFF OF OUR BENCH THAT WOULD BE STARTERS ON 90% OF THE OTHER TEAMS IN THE NBA..INCLUDING YOUR BELOVED HEAT...

WISH US LUCK!!

have you ever heard of the atlanta braves? they were a top team in the MLB for like 10 years...they have just as many titles in the past 15 years as the city of miami does! not to mention that Atlanta is the fastest rising metropolitan area in the country!
Check your facts. The Braves won one title in that time. The Marlins alone won two, play the Heat in 2006. Great the Braves won a divison. Atlants can't give away tickets. Worst fans in sports.
