On the surface, the new Nike LeBron X Low Floral sneakers looks like something only sneakerheads can really discuss but when you take a look at the insoles you will see 11-12. 12-13 in the left and 2 Time Champion in the right.
That’s kind of bold move by N(ostradamus)ike because I would feel kind of silly wearing these shoes if the Spurs end up as the 12-13 Champs.

The Los Angeles Clippers are still searching for a coach as they try to find the right guy to lead the team toward a title and convince Chris Paul to re-sign with the organization. Brian Shaw and Lionel Hollins have been the two leading candidates as of late, but news came over the weekend that the Boston Celtics might be willing to essentially trade coach Doc Rivers with Kevin Garnett to the Clippers.
It looked like talks had stalled after the Celtics held firm that Eric Bledsoe be included in the deal and the Clippers declined, instead opting for revisiting the possibility of hiring Shaw or Hollins as their coach. But Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports is reporting the talks are still ongoing and the Celtics are trying to find a way to receive Bledsoe while still finding an extra asset to give to the Clippers for compensation.
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are discussing possible compromises to including guard Eric Bledsoe into the Kevin Garnett-Doc Rivers deal with hopes of completing an agreement on Monday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Discussions over a blockbuster deal reached an impasse on Saturday when Boston general manager Danny Ainge held firm that Bledsoe had to be a part of package that included DeAndre Jordan and a first-round pick, but sources say that Boston has shown a willingness to find another asset to supplant Bledsoe and complete the complicated deal, sources said.
This would certainly be a historic move and one that could theoretically turn the Clippers back into a serious title contender, like some thought they were before the playoffs began. While losing Bledsoe and Jordan would be big subtractions, the Clippers’ rotation last season often gave inconsistent minutes to those two promising young players. Replacing Jordan with Garnett and finding a backup point guard to spell Paul wouldn’t be that bad of an option, especially when you factor in that Rivers would be replacing Vinny Del Negro on the sidelines.
It’s just a matter of how much the Clippers really do value Bledsoe and what they’ll demand in return. Bledsoe can play next to Paul in the backcourt if the team is willing to go small, but re-signing CP3 means there isn’t a future there for Bledsoe down the line. And that means they’d have to flip him for maximum value sooner rather than later, since potential trade partners would be aware of a lack of leverage the team would hold with Bledsoe when it’s the deadline to make a deal with or for him.

ESPN and NFL.com sources (including the reputable Ed Werder) are reporting that the Patriots will sign Tim Tebow, bringing the media magnet to New England, at least for a look. No word on whether this will cause ESPN to focus on things other than the Heat once in a while.

Spurs 84-103 Heat
After playing neck and neck majority of the game. The Heat find a way to make a strong push giving them all the momentum needed.
We didn’t lose any games at home,” Bosh said. “Dropping one on your home floor in the opening is a tough pill to swallow, but it’s our reality.”
The turnovers and missed shots had a key figure in this quarter. The Heat immediately starting driving and dishing it out for 3’s that they would make. Defense was the key in this game.
“For some reason when our backs are against the wall, we really respond appropriately and that kind of propels us through the rest of the series,” Bosh said. “Maybe when we look back on this we’ll say losing Game 1 was the best thing that could happen to us.”
The Heat have scored 7 points on drives to the basket by Dwyane Wade (3-5 FG), after scoring 4 points on his drives in Game 1 (2-8 FG).
Series tied 1-1
Okay so this angers me out of my mind.
First off, Dennis Rodman is better than Birdman in EVERY aspect of the game and they shouldn’t even be compared. Birdman is just there for height and shotblocking ability. Rodman was a game changer, a SF that averaged SEVENTEEN REBOUNDS, and one of the best defensive players the game has seen. Rodman was a game changer. Birdman is someone they picked off the street doing meth.
Next, I would never DARE to call Scottie Pippen a sidekick. I have a lot of respect for Dwyane Wade, even with my dislike of the Miami Heat, but I would call Scottie Pippen more of a partner. A sidekick is something that you would call someone much lower than you, like a helper. Now I’m not saying Dwyane Wade is either, Dwyane Wade isn’t a sidekick. The whole sidekick portion of it is completely wrong.
LASTLY, Michael Jordan and LeBron shouldn’t be compared.
I don’t want to go on about the Leader portion knowing how eager you fans get about LeBron.
NBA Memes You have gone wrong my friend. WRONG.
