If you are reading this then you are still here. Last night was game three of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls. The “heat” was certainly on last night, and it proved that every super star needs other shining stars
The Bulls with the best record in the NBA, and the league’s MVP are
wilting under the heat. One player cannot do it. Michael had the Jordaniers. Kobe had the Shaq Daddy. Hakeem Olajuwon had Clyde Drexler. All the other teams with one superstar have come close but have not tasted victory. Patrick Ewing came close. Charles barkley came close. Vince Carter came close. Lebron James came close in Cleveland. Amare, Howard, Iverson, and the list goes on. They were and for those still playing, they are superstars, but they had no shining stars.
So as much as we don’t want to see it happen, the Miami Heat are on their way to another championship, unless the Dallas Mavericks really wake up and realize this is their year. Dirk has Kidd, Terry, and Marion to help him. They won’t get another chance like this again. The Thunder are doing what they’re supposed to do in their second playoffs, and that is make noise and try to scare people. San Antonio got scared and they were knocked out. Dallas is playing tough and will prevail. If they can keep the momentum going then Jason Kidd will retire with a ring.
Back to the Heat vs Bulls series- Derek Rose needs help. Boozer, Noah, and Deng all have to play like stars. Anything less and the Bulls will be one and done. What do you do when the heat is on? When the heat is on you do what is necessary to stay cool. You don’t curse the heat or fight the heat? No! You get a fan, an AC, you wear light clothes- you do what you have to do. In sports, you have to do the same thing. The ability of the Bulls to do this will determine if they continue to wilt or turn this series into a bull run.
