Man of the Hour: Mike Miller

I’m sorry I haven’t posted lately guys. I got another job and I’ve been in charge of operations so it’s been busy but guess what?

I’m fighting through this migraine so I can cheer for the Miami Heat!

And guess who came back with full force today? Mike Miller, that’s who!

For those of you who aren’t watching must be wondering why I’m talking about Mike Miller out of all people. Want to know why?

Because this dude has made 4 out of 4, 3 pointers and it’s only the first half! Next to Lebrons 13 points, he is the second leading scorer in the first half!

No clips on youtube yet but you know they’re coming!

Let’s go Heat! Chalmers needs to stop with the turnovers, he’s getting a little heavy handed there.

And after such an impressive Game 4, Russel Westbrook who had made 43 points is now only 2 out of 9. The Heat need to be and stay aggressive to win this! Don’t give them the opportunity to cut the lead short.

And last but not least, NAIL THOSE FREE THROWS! This is KEY to winning this last game against the Thunder.

I laugh at all the top sports critics who said that the Thunder had this series in 6-7 games.

To Abbott, Arnovitz, Barry, Bowen, Broussard, Ford, Legler, Mason, Stein, Wilbon, Windhurst and Young, the “EXPERTS” at ESPN, all I have to say is HAH! HOW DARE YOU DOUBT THE AMAZING TALENTS OF LEBRON JAMES AND HIS PIMP ASS CREW!

We got this!

*UPDATE*

Mike Cif makes a great point! Mike Miller is playing through many injuries, most of which appear to be chronic. But as we see time and time again injuries are nothing these players can’t handle!

Lebron comes back with a 3 in Game 4 while limping to the line.

Chris Bosh came back with 3 points up the wazoo when he finally came back!

Wade is suffering from back pain from the bump into Ibaka but no matter.

These pros are champions, whether they have their rings yet or not.

But here are those clips I promised you of Miller!

Bosh’s pump fake!

Not to mention this amazing alley oop from Chalmers to Wade!

*UPDATE #2*

MAKE THAT 5 FOR 5 FOR MIKE MILLER!!!!!!

*UPDATE #3*
Little Half Time interview!
6 for 7 three points! HE IS ON FIRE!
OMG 7 FOR 8 THREE POINTERS!
BOOOM SHAKA LAKA!

Heat for the WIN! Boom Shaka Laka!

Today’s game was AMAZING!

I was only able to catch the 2nd half since HD ABC wouldn’t play at the TV at work which kinda majorly sucked. But it happens that way sometimes. These jerks who ordered food came to watch the game so I was kind of happy that it wasn’t playing on the TV. Karma’s a bitch.

But my biggest thought for today is WHAT IS GOING ON WITH WADE TONIGHT? 5 Turnovers is NOT OKAY. Stop being pressured into a turnover, why didn’t anyone have his back? So many needless bad passes and hesitations by Wade. We need to work on that yeah?

And for Chris Bosh, it’s just like Mark said, you’re a big man so finish the game! A foul doesn’t mean you can just throw up the ball all willy nilly! Take it to the hoop! But amazing job on those block shots! You’re a beast!

And Lebron needs to take those shots when he’s open. You don’t need to be constantly passing the ball to another player. YOU are the key player of this team. Yes team work is important but when you are wide open, take the shot. It wouldn’t hurt to take an open 3 or to go closer for an easy shot. I’m really proud you made all your free throws in Game 2 and missed only 2 today! Such a big improvement from previous games.

And you need to spread out from each other to break up the Thunder defense! When you guys are too close to each other it allows people like Westbrook and Fisher to guard more than one player at a time which is a big NO NO.

Who else was surprised by KD’s 5 personal fouls today? I sure was. For a second I thought he might actually foul out of a game. He should’ve or should I say, almost, fouled out Game 2. He’s been cutting it close. And for those of you who missed it, (like I did because I was at a farewell dinner), here it is:

Whether you think it was a blocking or a charging foul, it is what it is and it’s already over and done with.

What’s really surprising is how consistent the Heat have become with free throws while the Thunder, who are the #1 free throw scoring team during the regular season, is suffering so much from missed free throws which end up becoming missed opportunities.

And I’ll post some highlights from tonight’s game as well.

Udonis Haslem DENYING Derek Fisher’s attempt at the rim!

Dunk by Wade assist by Chalmers!

 

Heat up 2-1! BRING IT ON THUNDER! If the Heat could somehow magically win all 3 at home this series would be set!

Miami at OKC – Game 2 BRING IT ON!

Miami has brought their defensive game to Game 2 but what they’ll need to figure out is how to screen Perkins from getting rebounds and second shot opportunities. Perkins is just a bigger man than Battier and the guy who trades with him. But Wade has shown his true potential early on and combined with Lebron and Bosh a win won’t be an issue as long as they keep playing strong.

Despite not having any blocks in Game 1, Serge Ibaka is stepping to the plate once again to assert his dominance on the court. The Block Masters Wade and Ibaka are going to have to battle it out on the court today. Ibaka has already blocked Wade’s shot in the first few minutes so it’ll be an interesting game to watch.

Oh and did you see Chalmers pass the ball back to Lebron? Good Chalmers…

And we’ll see today if Lebron has been working on his free throw shooting off the court.

Miami up 16-2

Stop being such a bitch Chalmers

Workout Guide for the Heat before the Finals

-Lebron needs to work on his free throws.
He’s missed WAY too many for comfort.

-Mario Chalmers needs to learn to pass to other (more talented) players.

-He (Chalmers) also needs to not shoot (like ever).

Did you hear Jeff when he said that Mario Chalmers gets eyes rolled at him more than anyone else. Hahaha.

Whatever Dude. Hahaha.

Were you watching when Lebon just looks at Chalmers and goes, “PASS TO ME!!!!!”

Watch this!

Wade and Lebron just OWN that court!

Bosh has been making a hell of a comeback! Two 3 pointers! AW YEAH! Make that Three 3 pointers!

Game 7

It’s a close game…maybe a little TOO close if you ask me.

WAY TOO MANY TURNOVERS MIAMI! 10 TURNOVERS RESULTING IN 14 POINTS?!

Not okay. But Lebron and Wade are closing the gaps but they’ll need to tighten up their offensive game. No more turnovers and don’t let Bass have any more steals than he already does. Lebron needs to dominate like he did in Game 6.

But that two on one steal by Lebron and Wade was pretty sweet.

Watch this awesome block by Lebron. Fast break DENIED!

Let’s go Miami!

First Pierce, now Lebron

Paul Pierce fouled out like he did last series against the Hawk. And what’s weirder was it was Game #4 and Overtime as well. But Lebron just fouled out just now. That 5th foul they called on him was bullshit though. Garnett threw him to the ground and he didn’t even do anything. But another 3 of the players on the Celtics have 5 fouls so we’ll see what happens.

I can’t believe Haslem missed the winning shot though. But I understand, it wasn’t a clear shot, still tough though. AND NOW ANOTHER FOUL DURING POSSESSION?!

I am going to lose my mind!

*UPDATE*

NOOOOOOO!!!! Wade should have HAD that one! UGH. It hurts so bad…

Hong Kong Part 1

Well right before we left for Hong Kong I got The Walking Dead video game for the PS3 and I found it pretty entertaining. It’s less fighting zombies and more making the right decisions so that you’ll live and everyone won’t hate your guts. I finished the first episode and I’m just waiting for the other 4 to come out. Apparently they’ll come out every month so that’ll be good. I’ll have something to play since Mark informed me the other day that the release date for Bioshock 3 has been moved to February from October. Bleh. Not fair!

I tried playing Dead Island again yesterday but I got pwned by the zombies and some 17 year old kid in Chicago. Well he was level 50 and he came and rampaged my level 20 game. Whatever.

Anyways, we got a pretty awesome hotel in Hong Kong.

We had a pretty snazzy restroom and everything too.

There wasn’t really a view but we didn’t mind. Most times we were out and about anyways so it didn’t really matter. And the times we were back at the hotel trying to get out of a freak storm we’d be warm and cozy in our nice bed watching some good ol’ Adventure Time! Hahaha.

There were only like 6 shows on Cartoon Network Asia that were all in rotation. I’m serious. And most of these shows I’ve never even heard of.

1. Adventure Time
2. Gumball
3. Some bug show
4. Chowder
5. Tom & Jerry
6. Camp Lazlo (once)

But when we weren’t watching Adventure Time we’d be watching Wipeout on AXN. Hahaha. It was on every single morning and that’s some priceless stuff right there!

And for those of you who have yet to catch on here’s a clip just to show you how awesome this show is!

New Season starts soon! Mark and I can’t wait!

And I thought I was going to buy a lot of clothes throughout the whole trip but I did most of my splurging on the first day.

I bought a Lebron jersey for less than half the price of a real jersey back home. YES! I kind of wanted more jerseys but I restrained myself. I got some cute stuff though so I’m happy. I took some mini polaroid pictures with the instax mini camera I bought so I have quite a few of those too. Maybe I’ll scan them sometime.

We both had to deal with a little shower here and there but we got to eat good food and see some amazing shit so we didn’t really mind all too much. I wanted to take a picture of the food we ate but I felt like that would just make me very stereotypically Asian that I had to stop myself.

This wouldn’t really be a Hong Kong post if there were no pictures of Hong Kong right? Hahaha.

A lot of the buildings in Hong Kong were beat up and dilapidated but they still looked pretty neat. It looked like that scene in Inception where he goes back to his dream island/world and all the buildings are like falling apart around him.

Kinda like this but less intense. YUP!

And we saw these ADs everywhere! It’s for this jewelry store called TSL but they’d use the same girl and dog for each ad. Sometimes she’d be holding the dog, other times they’d be far apart and every once in a while there would even be another dog.

TSL and Chow Tai Fook’s (another jewelry store) are like the ABC stores of Hong Kong. They are EVERYWHERE! I don’t know how these people make ANY money! I’m going to see if I can find the other ads online somewhere.

I found one where she’s with 4 dogs. Just absolutely ridiculous but so awesome!

And we went to McDonalds and not only are the portions really small but they have different sections to the McDonalds. There’s a drink section which is like for Ice Cream Shakes and Smoothies and stuff and then there was another counter for desserts. Like when I say different section I mean whole different counters and registers just for that one type of thing. It was pretty neat. Again, I was too chicken to take a picture but I’m sure I could find one online.

See theres one side with Hamburgers, and then two other counters on the right hand side where it says “McCafe”. Sometimes the drinks (like coffee and shakes) and dessert counter will be the same but it depends on where you go.

But why I wrote about MickeyD’s is because I took this picture (or Mark took a better one actually).

BITEME. FRESH. CLASSIC.

One last thing before I go. When I looked up “Hong Kong McDonalds” on Google I got a “McDonalds Hong Kong Wedding” result instead…

Weird. To each their own.
