Game Six

I wanted to see how ESPN would frame Game Six as part of their effort to get you to worship LeBron as a great hero:

A Really Big Three

LeBron led the comeback. Chris Bosh set up the shot. But Ray Allen delivered the defining moment of Game 6.

What a joke.

The Heat, LB James had nothing to do with “The Comeback”. Missed free throws, turnovers by Manu Ginobili and a series of odd maneuvers by Greg Popovich cost San Antonio Game Six. Period, end of statement. Furthermore, it’s hard to envision a Game Seven win by San Antonio after coming this close only to lose. That’s asking for a degree of mental toughness beyond anything asked of that, or any other team. Essentially, the Spurs would have to win back-to-back games on the road against Miami.

I always wanted my theories on the NBA’s involvement in game fixing to pan out. I don’t know how I could blame this game and therefore this series on behind-the-scenes maneuvering by officials. The Spurs lost this game. Then again, the blather by ESPN propagandists is astounding…they ask you to ignore what your own eyes saw. They want you to believe LeBron is a hero. How do you say LeBron “led a comeback” when if Kawhi Leonard makes a free throw, its over and there’s nothing the Heat can do about it? LB James looked like a frightened little boy in that huddle, when the Heat were down late. That’s the look of a guy concerned about what people would think of him and he needed someone else to bail him out. Leonard and Ray Allen fit the bill.

It’s a pure choke job by San Antonio, and there’s no other legitimate way to put it. But ESPN calling LB James as leader of the “comeback”? Total bullshit designed to sell more LB James jerseys and eyeballs on Game Seven.

I don’t know why I’d even bother watching Game Seven. Heat are going to win by double digits. But for once, I can’t call it a fixed outcome. San Antonio gave away The Finals in Game Six and not even I can say its conspiracy.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
