BLOGGING IN THE OFFSEAON



First off I just want to say to Cyrus that no matter how much attention u DON'T get, your blogs are great. I mean it seriously. I think everyone who has contributed on this blog at least once has had some really good posts. Something thats from the heart, something that is truly opinionated, and something thats on everybody's minds. Not just smart comebacks on "ask Ira" to be used as blog fodder. That being said, I know its hard, but I hope u keep on writing Cyrus. Its just hard to get everyone over here because we are so use to the other blog, but I know for a fact the reading over here is 100 times better. I am thinking of finding a different way to format things so maybe it will be more inviting to read here. If anybody has any suggestions let me know. Cyrus, keep up the good work, you are doing a great job. B4 u know it the season will be here and ppl will tire of the Heat Haters flooding the blog and come over here to talk pure basketball. If not, at the very least the chat box will be jumping again.

quickly about basketball .................


This whole thing is still not registering. I know I say it a lot but its cause its true. It still hasnt hit home and I think it will still be surreal till at least like the 1st month of the season is over.


If I had one player I would like to see play above and beyond, that would be Pittman. That centers spot scares me. Its not so much because of the players we got, but its how Spo will use them that scares me. I think each guy brings something different to the table, and from a night to night basis, we need to use whos best  for each situation. Seems obvious to us, but Spo is such a f*cking moron and so robotic with his rotations, I dont expect him to match  up properly. He will still be force feeding UD minutes at center against huge lineups, instead of playing Magloire against the likes of front lines like LA , Portland, and Boston.

  1. BTW, I had no idea Cyrus had been banned. I have been banned as well. LMFAO. "BROTHERS IN ARMS!!!!!!"


    Whats hilarious is(i went back and read your piece on u being banned) the same BS continues to go on over there with that bike riding cum bucket named Sledge, and me being who I am, I called his bitch ass out. I didnt even use a personal attack. He insulted the Heat players and called the whole blog some kind of homers as he usually does, and did for about 5 or 6 posts. One in particular he made a comment about Magloire having Hemmrhoids and I simply asked him in my own special way "how do u know?" and "why would u bring up a grown man's butt on a basketball blog?". He went on the attack, called me a name for the 2nd day in a row and reported me for the 3rd time.lmao. I was gone for hourse and when I cam back, Ira's lackey typed something on the blog about "say goodnight kbboy & Sledge". Said something about Junior high and banned us. Interestingly enough he didnt notice the junior high move he made with the slick ass comment of "say goodnight" like it makes him feel good to have some authority. That guy is a bitch. SO I guess he bans me(the big bad homo bashing bully) and bans Sledge for being a tattle tell.I hope that blog dies. All the idiot has to do is get rid of the real trolls, mainly Sledge, and there will be no problems. I refuse to just sit back and let Sledge clown everybody and try to incite baseless arguments, thats y i stir him up.He can dish it but cant take, the opposite of what goes on at his secret "bike meetings" in the boys bathroom at the YMCA.

  2. Kbboy its BS you got banned and some people there are even talking about it including myself. I'm glad you got Sledge banned though. Its funny it took that moron Tiedje so long to realize that Sledge was the main core of all the problems. Well look forward to talking more basketball with you and all the regulars here once the season starts. Its been slow as hell since 7/8.

    Yeah that’s just really unfortunate. “Hewhoshallnotbenamed” finally went but he took down two good posters with him. The mods really have to rethink banning those two. Its obvious that everything immature they may have said was due to “he who shall be named”’s baiting.

    i hear ya, but maybe the free speech on this blog is viewed as the “Kracken,” and the blog Kracken wont get unleashed until the season starts up lol.

    always enjoy coming here and just talking basketball, although i am much more interested in x’s and o’s and strategy than the PER arguments and statistical analysis.

  4. First of all I am so proud of you KB... that double ejection was priceless. What a moron Sledge is to report you and call you KBgirl and other attacks.

    He must be having convulsions right now. I know how hard it was for me being banned and stranded over here for a few days - an emotional rollercoaster.

    Just picked out a magazine at the grocery store that I will review. It has LBJ on the cover with his Cavs jersey and you can peel it off yourself to reveal the Heat jersey - nice!

  5. I like the new layout... and the feeling of walking into a new article. I like to read your blogs too

  6. My worry is that by getting sledge banned (assuming it sticks) that things will be so good over there that we will have essentially taken one for the team. I'm wondering if we should create a new blog that we can commercialize. This one is already being flagged. Can one be created that goes under the radar? Also. I want to be more businesslike about it. Tracking how many readers we have... try to boost us up, etc. Getting carried away, but I think we might have a chance to turn this into something if we learn a thing or two... I mean we are covering lbj/wade/bosh heat now... international phenomenon... people are going to be obsessed. Maybe we can get a piece of that pie if we become the best heat blog on the net.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ok, back on the topic of your blog. It is surreal, which is why I paid the 6 bucks to read up on lbj. Double rainbow! The potential to be the greatest team of all time exists... team John Dillinger, and they will get better each year.

    I look at Pittman and Beverley and cannot help to hold them up to Perkins and Rondo standards. It will not happen over night, but I really believe they have the talent to take their games to top ten status in their respective positions if they work hard... and they both have the work ethic and awareness that they will never have this opportunity again. Make it or break it. I have not seen enough of Beverley to know if he can become a true point, but the biggest problem with his game seems to be a lack of confidence... hopefully playing next to the greatest players on any team can help him. He is my dark horse for PG of the future.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Pittman is going to be really good. I think he is motivated to become a great player... as wide open as he is going to be, I think simple math dictates that he will explode if he can earn minutes.

    I do worry about the force feeding of minutes of Haslem in particular into the power rotation until Bosh becomes at least as strong as Gasol (maybe he already is? I don't see enough of Bosh, but I know he can play the center spot at an elite level if Gasol can do it).

  9. They were talking on the Ticket that this team might even win 75 games. They even said it is possible for this team to win a title without one of the big three. What are your thoughts on this one?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have been saying that for a while actually. 2 out of these 3 = legitimate contender. The team is built to the strength of both Wade and LeBron, therefore, either could win a title with Z, Haslem, Bosh, Miller, House and the rest of the gang.

    Also, if Bosh goes down we still have the most fearsome twosome in the league... by far.

  12. MVP to Ohshz, Chris, Dsky0921 and Adrianw743 for this thread, which ends with Chris Tiedje clarifying that nobody has been banned for good. Maybe he had a change of heart thanks to this appeal, because while he said goodnight to kb and sledge, he just blocked me without a mention... without this blog, I would not have been able to defend myself against that decision... nobody would even know:

    It really is a shame that we lost 2 really contributory guys on here who have been with us for so long. I drop by the Ayslum everyday cuz Cyrus drops some amazing knowledge there daily. His blog articles are great. U guys should give him some support

    Adding “hewhoshallnotbenamed” to the petition ruins our argument altogether though.

  13. MVP honors to Ohshz, Adrianw743, Chris, Dsky0921, MikeA for the thread that got clarification on Chris T's decision to banish myself and KB... possibly swaying his decision entirely.

    It felt like kb and sledge were given provisional suspensions, because he said 'goodnight' to them... I on the other hand was banished without advertisement, so I feel like you guys get an assist there, no matter what he claims to the contrary.

    Well played gentlemen.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I reposted my opinion, because I thought the previous one did not post, but MikeA had not been mentioned in my previous thank you. Funny that KB didn't know I was banished until he met the same fate. :)

    Well, I am cool with what I am hearing from you guys. You love this place, but you still are accustomed to playing on the sentinel board. This place will remain in your daily routine for the articles and for game days.

    Let's see when I get re-instated then...

    I want to see the return of Sledgy. I never had a problem with the guy and he should be allowed to post regardless of his controversial team viewpoints as long as he backs it up with solid reasoning sans the homophobic/sexual remarks. This blog has been filled to the brim with Heat fakers that can’t take constructive criticism regarding the team due to the homer honeymoon period. I for one have been blasted in the past for making remarks against Wade and Haslem during the Beasley blog wars but even those that hated my viewpoints such as Ohshz always acknowledged that my viewpoints always had reasoning and backing. While this team looks and appears to be near invincible, there is no doubt that there is room for criticism when warranted.

    The King of the Blog is back!

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    My stance has been no, because he requires so much moderation. With the increased moderation he has been licking his chops at finding that perfect groove where he can instigate without breaking blog rules and trying to bait others into breaking such guidelines and then reporting those breaches of the rules.

    Nothing can stop this from being the best season in blog history though, because we got them all!

    And Ira needs to get on the ball and start updated his blog article! He’s been taking it easy the past couple of weeks! Either he does an article or answer more questions on Ask Ira! I demand greatness from our mediocre Heat beat writer that failed us fans all summer long!

  16. Props to King Riley for his thoughts on the situation. KR/Sposux was ridiculous at times last year, but I can honestly say that he has contributed some actual food for thought.

    Glad to see the Wade bashing has slowed now that he proved to be the great recruiter. I think it is OK to criticize the Heat if you think they are going down the wrong path, but the moderation is necessary at the ss.

    I am still not cleared for takeoff, maybe weighing in on Sledge's future was not the way to try to reintroduce myself, but I am OK with whatever Chris T decides.

    If this blog cop named Chris wants us to comment on basketball then it goes that the Heat Beat writer (Ira) needs to serve us bloggers something good to start a commenting thread on because this garbage of not updating the blog by Ira is weak!

    I totally agree with that, in fact the thought crossed my mind that the sentinel, another local paper or national website should pick up our content if we continue to grow.

    King, are you of the belief that Sledg.. actually gives opinions or is he just here to instigate crap on the blog? There is no way he actually believes what he writes in my opinion. He is just here to get under the “homers” skin. In other words he is a blog troll.

    Im not for the return of Sledgy. Are u guys kidding me? He never backs up his claims with facts, and when proved wrong he mysteriously disappears. He has all of his essays saved, so he just copys and pastes his previous facts. The guy thrives under misery. He was talking shyt even after we won the finals. His impersonators made him worse than he really is, but he should find work elsewhere. Plus hes the reason why 2 great blogers are gone in Kbboy and Cyrus
