Still the favorites for the title, even though Hollinger's odds (http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/playoffodds) like OKC better for some reason. Regardless, I'm definitely excited for these playoffs- the 4-5 in the West is going to be one hell of a first-round series.

In 15 meetings over the last three seasons, the aggregate score: Heat 1358, Bulls 1346.

I know it's only one game in the regular season, and the Bulls still have a lot of problems, but still. Feels good. That was a great game. Feels right for the streak to end in the Madhouse on Madison. By a short handed, injured, scrappy roster.

I love hockey, but man do I hate a lot of hockey fans.  There is no group with a greater inferiority complex with the exception of possibly soccer fans.  Both can be annoying but at least soccer fans are usually only defending their sports and not putting down other sports.  Too many hockey fans have the equivalent of "short man's syndrome."

It was a really good game last night.  The Bulls were playing with attitude and slapped the bully around like nobody's business.  It was a classic case of, "I don't care who you are or what you've done.  You're in MY house, and I'm not putting up with any of your shiat."

The Heat, OTOH, shouldn't be concerned about the streak being broken.  As long as they stay focused on the primary goal, they will silence the doubters, add fuel to the fire for haters, and further establish themselves as one of the great teams of the decade.

This is known, and I'm a Blackhawks fan. The seriousness with which hockey fans treat their sport is the antithesis of entertainment, in my opinion. I wonder if a lot of them realize they're not actually on the ice playing for their favorite teams.

Well the Blackhawks actually BROKE a record, whereas the Heat just had a good run at a record but ultimately failed. Breaking a record > almost breaking a record IMO

Whatever you have to tell yourself. You obviously don't care about reality, but you're a hockey fan and a Chicago fan, so that's pretty redundant.

I'm not sure that there are worse basketball fans than Miami fans.

While I do like the superteam idea and that players have decided they don't need to wait for their incompetent GMs/owners to figure out how to run sh*t in order to achieve their goals, the thing that sucks about the whole thing is that they went to Miami. Go to a city that gives a sh*t.

/though I suppose if they'd all gone to the Knicks or something, everyone would've been WAY more annoyed by them by now

If the winner finished with 40 or 50 most years, then maybe.  Then again eating contests are more carnival sideshow than sport.

6'4"+ men running up and down a court is a genetic freak show if you ask me - not saying that in a derogatory light, it's just not normal, know what I mean?

Both travel from town to town and charge admission to see a performance...spectators can make a basket from a distance to win prizes...popcorn, soda and cotton candy available for consumption also.  Kids face painting available in section 302.

I saw a news blurb last night that the streak was in danger so I turned into ESPN for the last 6 minutes of the game. I haven't watched a full game in about 10 years but those last 2 minutes reminded me why I no longer find basketball fun. Parade to the freethrow line that doesn't come close to the intensity of a last 2 minutes in a close hockey game.

Lebron looks like he's toying with kids on the court and he's better than Kobe ever was (and I'm a Lakers fan). He could even be better than Jordan was at his peak but Jordan's peak lasted for about a decade. If Lebron can keep it up for that long and pile up the championships he'll be the GOAT.

If a guy was in a hot dog eating contest and changed the rules so even when he didn't eat a hot dog, he got credited for eating a hot dog, then "broke" the record for hot-dog eating, would that be news?

I didn't set the bar, the 71-72 Lakers did, and the Heat failed to even come within 5 games of breaking it.

Well, if we adjust the rules to say that losses aren't losses, then the streak is still intact like the Blackhawks' "record" streak.

yes the lakers set the record.  however, your comment was setting a bar about the newsworthiness of the story at if it's not a record it's not news.  which is stupidly high bar.  yeah, the heat only won 27 games in a row, but it's damn newsworthy story as they are playing great and had won of the best streaks ever and lebron just insane.  a team/individual doesn't have to break a record to make the news.

Therefore, Michael Jordan and the 90s Bulls aren't worth discussing because they didn't win 8 consecutive championships like the Celtics of 1959-1966.

Before OTLs there were ties. I'm sure you remember that, right? And the record the Blackhawks broke was set by the Ducks and they did that after the OTL was implemented. That's why the NHL streak was called "point streak" because in sports that traditionally don't have to end in a win/loss (there's nothing wrong with a tie and it's a strategy to play for a tie when playing away in soccer and used to be in hockey too).

And are we pretending that no rules have been changed in NBA? FFS, the NBA is always adjusting what travelling is based on what moves the starts like to make. Now the bunny hop is no longer travelling because it's one of Lebron's favorite moves. Palming hasn't been called in almost 2 decades.
