      Loathing:
      And another class act leaves the NBA. You will be missed, Grant.

      Although he has many interests, I can’t imagine he won’t be involved with the league in some capacity-even if not right away.

      Woodson got trashed on this board for refusing to go “small ball” against the Pacers, trying to match their size, forgetting that he had scorers on the bench and double teaming Hibbert. Last night, until late in the third quarter (and for pretty much the entire series), Spoelstra forgot that he had Mike Miller on the bench, he pretty much forgot that he had Shane Battier on the team, he double teamed Hibbert consistently, and he brought Joel Anthony back from the dead because he was trying to match the Pacers’ size and his “small ball” center Chris Bosh was being obliterated by Hibbert. Which leads to one of two conclusions — either Spoelstra is as dumb as Woodson or the Pacers are pretty darned good. I think that it’s the latter.
      By the way, how stunned does LeBron look because he is not getting the “breathe on LeBron and you get called for a flagrant foul” treatment? That technical on him last night was hilarious. I thought that he was going to run right out of the arena. The “he’s a flopper” chant when he was shooting foul shots was also pretty funny…

      Even though Bosh was getting handled I think they should have went back with Bosh instead of Anthony sooner. Joel wasn’t doing that much and Bosh would have created more spacing.
