Not to beat a dead horse because lord knows this horse has gotten his share of wallops, but there is at least one more dynamic that needs to be looked at in the Pacers/Heat matchup -- the refereeing.
Does it seem like people are a little bit biased against Anderw Bynum? Is it because they really want Dwight Howard? Is it because he is not jovial like Shaq? Or not the all-time best people person like Magic? Or is it too high expectations?
In a new segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down why two-time NBA MVP Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward of all time.
Moving forward minus Bosh, Miami is highly vulnerable. Let us not forget that this was the eighth most efficient half-court offense in basketball this year, and that was with Bosh. In other words, if they cannot get out and run, they can be beaten.
Scoring totals in the NBA can be quite deceptive. A player can boost his scoring totals by simply taking more and more shots. But if this shooting is inefficient, teams actually suffer from this choice.
In nine career postseasons, Anthony is 17-37, which is the worst record of any active player with at least 50 playoff games. Even with Sunday's 89-87 win over the Heat, he has still lost 11 of 14 playoff games.
Whether or not Amar'e returns for Game 4 at the Garden, as he proclaimed he will on Wednesday, remains to be seen, but if the Knicks have any chance at prolonging this series, it is with him out of the lineup.

When Jose Reyes comes back to Citi Field, give the man the respect he deserves. He wanted to remain a New York Met. He really did. But, the offer wasn't right.
"This is so much bigger than basketball," Wade said as she detailed the journey that took the family from poverty to a position of philanthropy with the Wade's World Foundation.
When exposed to the light, the NRA's agenda becomes toxic. And Americans want nothing to do with those who conspire to bring about the gun lobby's dangerous "guns everywhere" vision they saw played out that February night in Sanford, Florida.
None of the derogatory caricatures that the media has conjured up are congruent with the Isiah Thomas that I know.
In the United States of America, do we enjoy the right to free speech? Notwithstanding whether Ozzie Guillen was unwise or tactless to open his trap in the first place, this has gone well beyond both the state line and the foul lines.
Although Guillen's comments could be considered inappropriate and were disrespectful to those who endured Castro's regime, the First Amendment is all-inclusive. Guillen, along with every U.S. citizen, is entitled to his own opinion.
