    Lets Go Heat, Lebron and Wade is going to destroy whomever they play.

  • Melanie

    Carole and Mike J, I agree with you guys, let’s go Heat!! :)

  • A-Bomb

    Just imagine had D. Rose had stayed healthy but NBA might get lucky if Boston beats Philly tomorrow.

  • commonsense

    i don’t understand why two east coast teams will play starting at 8:30? that means the games will end past 11pm. That’s way too late for me. Sorry but I have to work early the next day.

    What’s wrong with 8pm?

    These upcoming match ups will be so great, everyone will watch. Predicting a ratings bonanza! Would love to see the Heat finally fulfill their promise, but an OKC title win would be amazing.
