Curmudgeon's Lawn: They Still Suck, Sometimes...

Ok, they only sucked for 12 minutes last night, against arguably the best team in the league. However, I hope last night served to inject some much-needed reality into people's perception of our beloved team. I'm not sure whether it's youthful inexperience on the part of some of our players, a brain-fart from our coach (who seems to have them sometimes, generally involving personnel use), Miami being in their heads, or simply lack of a 20ppg superstar who can take over the game, but I think last night showed that this team, while admittedly "fun to watch," isn't beating a top team in a 7-game series this year.

Or maybe, just maybe, they were who we thought they were. A mediocre team that got on a good run for a little while (as most teams are wont to do) due to continuity, young legs, and team chemistry (all of which are Good Things, but they aren't beating LeBron, Wade and the Boshtrich in a series), but will inevitably play to the level of their actual talent, which is still not that special, once the other teams get their legs under them.

In the end, talent tells in this league, not chemistry, youth, depth, or continuity. And this team doesn't have the raw talent to go toe-to-toe with the best, not over a 7-game series.

Now get off my lawn before I get the shotgun!!
