That said, it'd be great to get one in a full season! (Heat Fan)and
I still remember when the Spurs got a title in a short season and said the same about them. they made everyone forget about it with other titles. we will see if the Heat can do the same thing. (bball master)...did you not understand???
I still remember when the Spurs got a title in a short season and said the same about them.They played only 60% of the games in the Spurs lockout season.
Why are you guys wasting your time with this guy?punchline, it's weird...for some reason, Heat fans love trolling on this thread...for the life of me, I still don't understand why! And yet, you've come back for a taste as well...amazing!
They played only 60% of the games in the Spurs lockout season.Both were the result of a lockout shortened season. If the league were to somehow mandate that the regular season be reduced by X number of games, that'd be one thing...but that wasn't the case in '99 and wasn't the case in '12...hence the stigma of the * asterisk.
They played 80% of the games last year. Funny thing is most people rather see the NBA go to a 65-70 game schedule because most feel like the season is too long.
80> 60 and that is a big difference.
If the Lakers had won it in '12 it wouldn't have been such a big deal, because they have 16 other banners hanging in their raftersLOL this is so retarded. The 16 championships they woun would have had absolutely nothing to do with them winning a title in a 66 game season. Stop beating around the bush and just admit if the Lakers would have won you wouldn't consider it a asterisk because that's your team. Matter of fact if the Heat lost in the finals I can guarantee you wouldn't have considered it an asterisk for OKC either.
"Three Kings" led Miami Heat...well...you can understand the scrutiny and why it's a significant point of contention.Point of contention to who? Heat haters and Reggie Evans?
RealDeal, when will you finally come out of the closet and claim your thrown as the Heats king fan instead of settling on being the "Kings" personal cheerleader...?Because it's retarded comments like these that have caused me as well as thousands of others to go from having no care in the world about the Heat and LeBron, to now constatntly having to try and talk sense into ignorant fans of other teams. Because the Lakers have the biggest following on here, it's primarily coming from the Lakers fans. Now, from having taking the Heat and LeBron's side for about 2 years now, I hope they do keep winning just to shut up the nay-sayers.
Of course they didn't shorten the playoffs, that's not the point...the point is that we're talking about the Miami Heat, who like the Spurs before them in '99, need to consolidate their asterisk, lockout shortened season * championship with another one in a real, normal season in order to make everyone, including Heat Fan (who said, "it'd be great to get one in a full season") feel better about the whole thing because of the relative newness of winning titles, given the respective franchises in question.Does thinking like this cause you pain? It should. Nothing Miami can do will make me feel any different about last years title. We won the title. Period. How many of the Laker titles came in 82 game seasons? Not even half. How many came after winning 16 playoff games? Get out of here with this BS.
If the Lakers had won it in '12 it wouldn't have been such a big deal, because they have 16 other banners hanging in their rafters, but because we're talking about the "Yes.We.Did", "...not two, not three, not four, not five, not six...not seven", "Three Kings" led Miami Heat...well...you can understand the scrutiny and why it's a significant point of contention.So because Miami talked some trash and had a huge celebration, there title doesnt count. okay gotcha.
