Miami Heat Playoff Run


Recommended Posts

JIMMY FUCK ITS JUST HAD 40! I CALL HIM THAT BECAUSE WHEN HE SHOOTS THE BALL, HE SAYS “FUCK IT BALL GOING IN”. Sorry for the all caps just very excited. Miami is up 1-0 in the 2nd round over the one seed Milwaukee Bucks. It’s nice to see the Marlins and Heat both as legitimate championship contenders! YES I SAID IT! 🔥

Hell, even the shitty ass Dolphins SEEM to be trending in the right direction FINALLY.....won't be this season (if there is one) but you gotta feel much better about their direction now than in almost any year since Dan retired.

Do you guys think that we will ever see a year where all four South Florida pro teams will all win championships the same year?

Odds are no just because that's nearly impossible. A year in which all 4 teams are "good" is more possible of course.

Yep. It has never happened with a city in sports history. I think Boston came the closest.

And if I remember right, the one with the most titles (Celtics) were the ones who didn't make it.

Lol Dolphins Heat and Marlins could maybe. But that’s a stretch. Panthers I’m losing hope with. I love them, but good lord they have the second winningest NHL coach ever, a 2x Vezina Award Winner, and multiple good young pieces. And they were the biggest disappointment in the league this year. Panthers lease expires sometime this decade. I hate to say this, but I could see Panthers relocating soon if they can’t win given all the resources they currently have. At least the Marlins are locked into Marlins Park til like 2047 haha

DEM GOONS FROM DADE COUNTY! 6 WINS AWAY FROM AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP! HEAT RAISING THE BAR FOR THE MARLINS THIS YEAR! GIF by NBA

The best thing the Heat can teach the Marlins is the importance of putting the right players in the right roles at the right time. 😂

Actually when you think about it, the Heat and the Marlins have some similarities:

Not a lot of big names, some rookies and second year players playing a big role, and some veterans who are stepping up and performing when they are called upon.

Besides Jimmy Butler, there are not really any “Superstars” on the team,(Although Bam is on his way, and if Heat make it to the finals, he’ll be a household name in a month or so.)

But still even without a roster full of “big names” the Heat are still finding a way to get it done and perform at a very high level. Definitely a good job by Pat Riley/Erik Spoelstra of putting together the right pieces that fit well together as a team.

 

What’s great about the Heat is how well each player knows their role and knows how to step up and work as a unit. Definitely have to give a lot of props to Erik Spoelstra for his coaching, not just for calling plays, but knowing how to put the right group of guys on the floor at the right moment and also knowing when to take guys out of the game when necessary, to always have the best team out there at any given time.

Of course, baseball and basketball are completely different sports and you can’t just take guys off the field and let them rest for 10 minutes and put them back in the game. 😂

Having good coaching/management of the team is always going to make a big difference, which is something that we haven’t always seen this year from the Marlins, unfortunately. 😢

But I’ll still support Don Mattingly, I know he’s not everyone’s cup of tea and he definitely makes some coaching decisions that can leave you scratching your head at times, but I’ll still support him for as long as he is the manager of the Marlins, because as a fan that’s pretty much all I can do. 😂

I would like to see him become more like his old boss/mentor Joe Torre, as far as the multiple winning seasons go.*

 

*Obviously, I know you cannot compare the Marlins with the Yankees or Don with Joe Torre, but it’s still a fun thought. I still would like to like to see multiple winning seasons from the Marlins with Mattingly and hopefully the trend starts this year!

P.S. Go Heat!

Lol, this is such an old, boring trope, y'all! I hate to call it out every time, but it's getting under my skin. Great post overall, SirFF, but Mattingly is about to lap the field for Manager of the Year, and you're going to take some baseless pot shots at him?

This team has considerably over-played its run differential, and folks are still whining (without any reasoned argument) about Donnie's bullpen management. Give it a rest, folks! Every armchair manager in every baseball teams hometown thinks they can write a better lineup card and run a better bullpen than the manager. And somehow, quite impressively, they are certain they can do so without the advice of medical professionals, pitching/hitting coaches, and analytics! Wow!

Maybe we should just crowdsource them lineup cards and calls to the bullpen! It would be very interesting to see how well Yimi pitches after going 7 days in a row.
