Ray Allen flops to the floor tonight after a body foul by JJ Barrea and somehow it ends up with the ejection of Barrea.....all 5 foot 10 of him. But its the Heat so there it is..,,,

I'm going to have to agree with JJ as he left the floor Ray..."you're a pussy."

He body checked him for sure. That being said, Ray was about 2 inches off the ground and jj is like 170 pounds. I think Ray overreacted a bit.

That Nash hit was the greatest moment in NBA history and netted me some serious cash from dumbass Suns fans.

Yeah, it can be both. It shouldn't have been a flagrant 2, but that was twice in a couple minutes he hit somebody, and he definitely did hit Allen, so it isn't quite the travesty verb to trust would like to imagine. I wonder why he didn't come on here to complain about Serge Ibaka's cup check on Griffin the other night...I guess because it didn't involve whining about the Heat.

You'd probably get a kick out of this then: During the T-Wolves game they put "Bandwagon Fan Cam" on the screen as their cameras zoomed in on people in the stands wearing Heat stuff. I thought that was pretty clever. Between that and their Harlem Shake response the T-Wolves were pretty funny this week.

That's great. The wolves had so much potential this year but all their injuries did them in. The nice thing about being irrelevant this season is they can do stuff like that and not raise a big fuss.

How was Ibaka not suspended for a game?

Maybe his chop didn't fully connect.

Clutch.

Also, lucky because the refs gave them that game. Horrible officiating.

As an aside, I have a dumb question: If two defenders go up for a block, the first guy gets a clean block and then after that the second defender hits the shooter in the hands, is that a foul? Is it technically a foul, but they don't call it because the block was clean?

I believe it is technically a foul, but it's usually not called. I've always wondered that too.

The NBA is the only job where the doctor says go back to work and the employee can tell his boss he needs to wait it out a little while longer.

Someone tell Derrick Rose he doesn't HAVE to dunk off his left leg, layups count too. I'm worried Derrick is putting too much pressure on himself. Nobody is going to expect 40 minutes a nigh and 30 point games....

The Bulls need the lift as their morale has been low lately...and I can't take much more of this:

i disagree. if he is wondering if his left leg is strong enough to dunk off of then he is going to be thinking too much when playing. which foot did i put down frist? if i cant dunk off it can i cut off of it.

its better to come back sure than to have any lingering doubt, or else youre going to really effe something up

cutting is way harder than dunking off of. so yea, if there's any doubt about that than he won't even be playing this season.

If there was anything the doctors could say that would back this up then I would agree. Everyone you ever talk to who has had acl surgery has said you just have to get out there and work through it to get back to full strength. If he is waiting to get that feeling without game action he will never play again I guess.

If I was a Bulls fan I'd much rather him sit out the remainder of the season and come back at 100% next season. He already rushed back from injury once last year and look what happened. I don't blame him for not rushing back this time. I understand the frustration when it seems like your star player isn't killing himself to get back on the court, but looking at the big picture I think whether he plays for the next two months is almost entirely irrelevant.

Right, especially given the dominance of the Heat this year. The kid is only 24. Apparently he is having some hamstring issues as well.
