LeBron and the Cavs went into the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL and took care of business last night, beating the Heat 107-100 [LeBron beat Wade 42-41].
Like always when LeBron and Wade get together, they put on a great show for everybody and the game was close. These guys are amazing to watch if for nothing else than their competitiveness.
I'm not sure how I feel about their friendship. In some ways it's all, "How cute, they're buddies!" But in other ways, you sort of [I sort of] wish that they were mortal enemies who went home and cried if they lost to each other [not literal crying of course, that violates rule #1].
All that to say, when will science become advanced enough that LeBron and Wade can have a super basketball baby? Maybe we could call up the "octo-mom" and see if she could help us out or something. We're looking for the next Jordan [aka the Messiah of basketball] and if LeBron isn't him, the only thing left to do is to create a genetically enhanced basketball prodigy.
I have D-Wade on my fantasy team this year because I saw him in the Olympics and knew how pissed he was following the terrible season the Heat had last year. I'm not even sure what makes Wade so good. With LeBron, the fact that he's the biggest guy on the court 90% of the time AND the fastest guy on the court, well, that sorta gives you the heads up that he's about to take your cookie and eat it too. But with Wade, it's like he just does whatever he needs to do to win. A shape-shifter if you will.
You can go ahead and refer to this as my sci-fi post of the week. I realize that I've brought up eugenics and shape-shifting. I'm a little ashamed.
Another quick note:
Shaq is killing right now. I don't understand it. It's like one of those movies where the hero gets mortally wounded but finds this "inner strength" that makes him do some crazy tough stuff; and then he dies at the end.
Hopefully Shaq doesn't die at the end, but, if we're looking at past cinema precedence, the future looks bleak.
