"Sometimes you have a feeling that you're about to embark on the most important trip of your life. When this feeling hits you, all of a sudden you understand your purpose. The clarity of what you must achieve is overwhelming, and you have the first confident inklings of what must be done and ... even how to do it." -- Pat Riley
It’s been 18 Years of ups and downs, lottery picks, stars and duds, heated rivalries and heart clenching games.
And it’s also been 18 years of heartbreaks. Losing seasons under Ron Rothstein and Kevin Loughery. The Rony Seikaly years. The wasted seasons with talents like Glenn Rice and Steve Smith. The lottery bust in Harold Minor and the terrible trade for John Salley. Then the Riley years. Losses to the Bulls, the Knicks and the Pistons. Jordan’s dominance, Allen Houston’s bouncer, Jamal Mashburn’s reluctance. Alonzo Mourning’s ailments, Pat Riley’s stepping down, Game 7 of the 2005 Eastern Conference Finals.
Tonight, all that pain and heartache can be washed away. Tonight a new page can be turned. Greatness is defined by these moments.
Tonight belongs to the Miami Heat.
LET’S GO HEAT!
Labels: Miami Heat
Either way, Shaq is gonna dominate tonight.
Let's Go Heat!!!
Besides, I agree with Tailor here. Tonight is all about Shaq. He's going to dominante and will this team over the top. Heat wins tonight.
Let's go Heat!
With that said ... we're gonna win. Wade will play through his ailment and will take over in the 4th.
Dude, well done with quickly summing up the heartache we've suffered through as Heat fans over the years. That Allan Houston bouncer still haunts me to this day. As does Jamal Mashburn passing the ball to Weatherspoon.
Tonight all that will be washed away for sure. And ck, don't worry about Bavetta ... our boys will play through that garbage.
Shaq will score 30+ and Udonis will have a huge game.
