    If Bosh and Roy Hibbert ever decided to play together; that front line would have the longest combined neck out of any PF/C combination in NBA history.

    Without that neck, Bosh is only about 6'3.

    Bosh needs to get out of Miami now that he has his title.

    I agree. He had a great series (not including the injury) and will always be a third wheel at best. Time to move on...

    Scott Brooks shows that he's a class act in the last huddle of the game.

    This guy? James may be the MVP but Bosh is the KING of the Heat.

    What was Turiaf doing with that late switcharoo? Bad decision. Bosh signaled that he was coming high to low and stuck with it. My only thought here is that it was a case of a righty trying to connect up with a lefty. It can throw you off a bit.

    I won't defend the rest of those.

    The key to increasing the percentage of successful connections for high-fives is to look at the other guys elbow. When you focus on the other dude's elbow, you rarely miss. One of my assistant baskeball coaches in high school taught me this trick and it has been transformational.

    A missed high-five can totally blow your psyche and destroy any emotional momentum that you had achieved to insitgate said high-five in the first place.

    ...focus on the elbow.

    How do you know when to go for the high five and when to go with a fist? Does your coach have insight on this?

    Heat are congratulating themselves on NBA TV with a live parade/celebration..(right now)..

    Hoping that Pat Riley doesn't say we are going to win it again next year or Lebron and Wade don't come out and say we are going to win not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4......................:bs:

    High fives are celebratory.
    Knuckle bumps are congratulatory or used as encouragement.
    ...duh!

    There are 3 types of butt pats.
    I'll cite 3 examples of hypothetical situations where a team member might adminsister these with say, ...Austin Daye:
    1.. endearment: "Austin, I think that it's great that you felt confident enough to attempt to back-down Boobie Gibson in the high post before dribbling the ball off of your foot (butt pat)."
    2. concilatory: "Don't worry Austin. Boobie Gibson is a tough defender. You'll get him next time (butt pat)."
    3. affection: "Hey Austin, I really think that if you put on 70 or 80 pounds, you could be one of the more valuable members of our team (butt pat)." - (please keep in mind that a knuckle-bump could also work in this situation).

    A chest bump is pure exaltation.
    Using Austin as an example again, one might see the chest bump deployed in the following situation:
    Ben Wallace: "(Expletive) yeah A-Daye! Y'all actually sorta contributed to us getting a defensive stop! (chest bump)"
    Austin Daye: "Thank you sir."
