In Response to Re: Another Boston game 7 collapse just hours away... : ________________________________________________ Collapse ? Blew a 13 point lead. How about a Tainted Tinsletown crowned Champion blowing a respectable shooting performance with 32% and it's star who walks on water, Kobe, shooting 6-24 or 25%. It was because of this we were ahead by 13pts but then the COLLAPSE and BLOWING of any decency/fairness by the referees awarded the Lakers 20 foul shots to 6 or +14 in the 4th qtr. enabling them to win by 4 pts. We wouldn't have had the 13pt lead as the total free throws for the game were 37-17 or + 20 but the Lakers shot another pretty miserable foul shooting % of 68% while we, unfortunately for the whole game only had 17...again, the Lakers had 20 just in the 4th qtr...and we got 15 or 88%. A COLLAPSE is what the Lakers did losing 0-4 to the MAVs & having home court advantage & 3 Big men allstars, Gasol, Bynum & Odom to only Dirk & also Kobe, the Avatar star, with numerous awards, and on paper no one on Dallas team as good. Amen !!!

Well, talking about collapse, how about leading the series 3-2 two years in a row and went 0-2 both times?
In case you don't notice, a sweep is NOT a collapse but a total overmatched. In sports jargon, a collapse is the snatch-defeat-from-victory type like
- leading by 13 points in the 2nd half of game 7 and lost,
- leading a series 3-2 and going home empty, TWO YEARS IN A ROW,
- leading a series 3-0 and lost,
- leading a conference championship game by 18 points and lost,
- leading by 3 runs in the 8th inning of a game 7 and lost,
I mean, you folks are very familiar with the term "collapse", so don't play dumb by trying to equate it to a sweep. You should know a collapse is different from an overmatched match-up...
