Happy Holidays, everybody!
We have the outstanding bloggers from Hot Hot Hoops as our guests: Surya Fernandez and Raul Takahashi. We talk how the Miami Heat has met expectations. And I think some big game is going on tomorrow.
BREAK IT DOWN
A. News all around, including the two big trades made by Orlando.
B. Talking Miami Heat with the guys from Hot Hot Hoops.
C. L.A. Segment. Lakers getting ready for the Heat. Clippers playing better now!
D. The rest... (blog talk, shoutouts, Pick 'Em, WORDS OF WISDOM by Nick)
REY: "Happy Holidays to all of you people! If you believe in Christmas... or Hanukkah... or Kwanzaa..."
DAVE: "...Chinese New Year!"
JIMMY: "I just hope that O.J. Mayo's dad isn't my secret santa."
PETER: "Turkoglu... I've never seen anybody look so happy. They keep showing him smiling like... all the time!"
NICK: "Why isn't the city of Miami fanning up?"
SURYA FERNANDEZ: "The Heat do have size. They're not the most talented or the freshest centers around. But they have three or four guys that can bang down there."
RAUL TAKAHASHI: "I like how "not the freshest" means old."
RAUL: "I love Mark Blount. I could kill with him on NBA2K."
SURYA: "Is he like Bo Jackson in Tecmo Bowl?"
NICK: "If the Miami Heat win, it's because James Jones torched them!"
JIMMY: "I think the Heat's gonna win by 2 points..."
RAUL: "Oh, wow!"
DAVE: "Stop it, Jimmy!"
NICK: "Dammit, Jimmy! Fan up!"
DAVE: "Heat by 49, instead of 50!"
PETER: "My prediction is... WHEN the Heat win, fill in the blank!"
