im talkin about the interview, in front of miami fans, during the award ceremony..
alarm bells went off, when stu asked lebron about "the decision"..
but I let it slide..
HOWEVER,
basically saying to wade, how does it feel to be number 2? And calling bosh, the forgotten man,
was grotesquely uncalled for..
you could feel the reek of awkwardness from your tv..
at the end of the interview, lebron looked pissed and you can see him go over to stu and say some harah words..
they just won a championship..
in front of a beloved crowd, was not the time for tough questions..

To me, it was blatant weird eye stu, was trying to make a name for himself,
as being the controversial guy, that is not afraid to ask tough questions..
aka jim gray vs pete rose..
but
you simply can not publicly humiliate people..

Stu, as punishment, should be demoted to covering hockey games, ha ha..
since no one watches hockey..
stu can say whatever the hell he wants to, ha ha!


Seriously, HCF?

These three put themselves in the controversial spotlight from the beginning. They received all the media coverage they asked for from "The Decision" to their coming out party.

When an athlete positions himself/herself to receive all the glory and accolades then he/she needs to prepare for the scrutiny as well.

They athletes that don't receive such scrutiny are the ones that don't put themselves in positions to receive it.


You are trying to rationalize public humiliation..
im not buying it..
weird eye is a tool..
he wont be sooo chummy with lebron anymore!


Did you ever consider that this was a ploy by ESPN?

ESPN took a lot of "Heat" for airing "The Decision". Yes, there was a bit of money that went to some Boys and Girls Club but it was the nail in the coffin that really took them away from being considered an unbiased and legitimate sports network and focused far too heavily on the E in their name.

So, by taking one of their basketball aces in Stu and having him ask some of these questions, they tried to legitimize their reputation again.

They couldn't use Stephen A. or his idiot sidekick, Skip Bayless. Neither of them have any real credibility.

Michael Wilbon is too well respected and even tempered. He is what they long to return to.

Stu was the perfect choice. Whether you like him or not, he is a recognized face of the network. Almost as much as Blowhard Berman. When Stu speaks, he speaks on behalf of the network.

He may not have cleared this with the team prior to (but they could have notified Reilly of some "hardline" questions); however, I'm sure that everything was patched up afterwards.

All of this was a well executed plan on ESPN's part.


You can ask tough questions in the press room.

NOT IN FRONT OF 40000 fans..
not cool


So, the only place to ask edgier questions is in the studio? Or a post-game press conference where everyone asks the same question with a twist?

This is the perfect time and place to ask these questions. The "Worldwide Leader in Sports" gets to the players as soon as possible.

These three have been dealing with the media pressure that they created for two years now. If they aren't prepared to respond to these questions that they must have heard before then the Heat need to reconsider their PR staff.

Ask the questions now when the answers should be more candid as the players have their guard down. No canned, rehearsed, PC answers that anyone can answer. Time for some truths now that they have their FIRST championship.

Lebron has an opportunity to make amends with Cleveland with a strong heartfelt response.

DWade has known he was going to be #2 to Lebron from the start He played #2 to Shaq as well. That's the role that an enforcer carries.

Bosh forgotten? He'd be even more forgotten(?) had he stayed put in Toronto. I'm sure Kevin Love in MN is envious of the move.

These guys can answer these questions without drama.

I would see covering hockey as a massive promotion over being relegated to the NBA.

I see no problem with any of his comments. In fact, making them lookk small is a plus.

Okay this TD is insane. Good one HCF!

He's got a point...




...if you're a Heat homer (hummer?).

I agree with nut sack to a point. The Heat opened a can of worms when they went out on stage and paraded around like "Street Ball'rs." A little humbling is good for the narcissists. lol

There's a time and a place for these things. For Stu to come out and ask them the same questions they have been asked for the last two years was idiotic. Stu went straight to the **** list for it. These guys just won a championship, the entire team is trying to celebrate and Stu is trying to start ****. Lebron, Wade and Bosh should have all said something. I hope the Heats front office has already let SC know about it as well.

This is in fact what happened. Sad and yet great at the same time.

HCF.....You are not going to win even though you are right. The Heat and Lebron haters will never admit the truth.
