In Response to NBA Foreshadowing: Heat win?
[QUOTE]Foreshadowing, a technique used in fiction, both literary and film, means the writer-director reveals, in a vague, symbolic way, something that is bound to happen in the plot in the future, something inevitable. It foreshadows (or predicts) something that is inevitable, that is bound to happen. I believe that the NBA promo ads featuring Lebron James and Chris Bosh coddling the NBA trophy represents the NBA foreshadowing a preordained Heat victory in the finals. It's so blatant it is truly disgusting. Neither James nor Bosh has ever won a trophy so the promo ads are pure fiction. I've never seen anything like it. If the Mavs win it all it will probably be despite the NBA's will. Yes, I may look like a fool if the Mavs win it, and so far they are cooperating by missing wide open shots and turning the ball over. Yet the calls or non calls are definitely going against them. I don't know how the NBA does it or how they will do it, but I believe that the NBA has preordained that the Heat will win the title. I just think that they have gotten better at controlling the games through the refs, being more subtle about it, and hiding it better. I'm disgusted because I love NBA basketball, but every year at this time I believe that the fix is in. I'm not a conspiracy nut, yet I see what I see. NBA promo ads with Heat players, who have never won a thing, coddling the NBA trophy. http://rajonrondowski.blogspot.com/

I'm rooting for Dallas for 2 main reasons, I'm not happy the Heat beat us and I don't believe it was because our big 3 was too old as Kidd, Terry & Dirk are 38, 34 & 33 respectively so are not youngsters and I want Dirk and Jason Kidd (probably his last chance) to win NBA titles. Dirk has led Dallas to 11 Playoffs & this is his 2nd final. He is a 10 time NBA all star and the best power forward, I believe, since our own Larry Bird.
As I reflect over & over on our loss to the Heat in 5 games, I can't remember a closer 4-1 series. We were tied 80-80 in Game 2 and led most of the way in Games 4 & 5. Rondo getting hurt was a main factor as we really needed a healthy point guard down the stretch in Games 4 & 5 as there were some crucial possessions thrown away. Emotionally Rondo was an inspiration for the team but it wasn't enough and I feel Doc should have sat him down and played West.
There is definitely some luck involved many times in sports as our guys, and not too old either, are a good team with a good coach and even with injured players will make the opponents execute to perfection to beat them. Just a few turnovers in our favor, a few shots made and some missed contested shots by the Heat---I recall unhappily that we were beaten by some late 3 pointers by LeBron and we were in his face & contested them but the one in Game 4 tied the score & then he hit 2, the 2nd a real dagger, to seal Game 5. Without these 3s it could have easily been 3-3 and who knows in game 7 ? And many feel he's a star and should have made those shots--- hmmm ???, look at his performance in Game 4 vs. the Mavs. For most of the games there were 5 battles and I feel Miami would have blown out a lesser team in 4 games. And if we contested, defended even better, we got called for fouls. The Heat shot 9 to our 2 in the final quarter of game 5. UGH, I was reminded a bit of our game 7 loss to the Lakers & the tremendous disparity in fouls being a major contributor to the loss. Went back to the Box scores and here's another main reason we lost. Five games fouls awarded & made, Miami first & then Boston, 32-26…18-14, +12 points, 36-27…22-17, +10 points, 19-14…17-14…"0"…WE WON !!!, 28-25…29-25…"0" and finally 38-26…20-14, +12 points.
Total for 5 games: Miami 153 made 117 and Celtics 106 made 84 which totals 153 awarded to 106 or +47 and made 117 to 84 or +33. Think if these were more even we would have won 1-2-3 more games ???
OK, I'm crying & venting, Mea Culpa….
Go Red Sox
PS...I hate the Heat as much as the Yankees so I'm not completely despondent these days !!!
