Something Nobody Should be Talking About but are
When Josh Smith attempted a showboaty dunk in a playoff game that was in hand, it turned in to a media frenzy. Some people say there was nothing wrong, others say that he was trying to show the Heat up and that it was going to be major motivation for the next game. The fact of the matter is, if you don't like it, do something about it Miami. If you hadn't let the game get out of hand and ya know, had a lead, this wouldn't have happened to you. The most laughable part about this whole ordeal is many members of the media going crazy about how selfish it was of Josh Smith because it provided bulletin board material for D-Wade and the heat. If the Heat need bulletin board material to get psyched up for a game in the playoffs where they face elimination, then its a little bit late for them to be caring about their playoff lives. I always get a kick whenever someone brings up something being bulletin board material. Your a professional athlete fighting for the most coveted prize in your sport while getting paid millions. If the prize isn't enough motivation for you, the cash sure as hell should be, not someone trying a pretty cool looking dunk. Instead of whining about Smith's attempted dunk, we should be giving him some credit for having the balls to try something a lil different on a national stage.
