Touche, Dwyane Wade. Touche.

I've been trying to think of something - anything, really - to say about last night's epic Bulls loss, but I only caught a bit of the fourth and the two overtimes, so I don't think I'm in much of a position to put that game in perspective. The general consensus seems to be that Wade could have gotten away with murder last night and it wouldn't have been called a foul, but that's what happens to superstars at home. It's just something you have to deal with.

The last sequence was obviously mind-blowing, one of those "did that really just happen" moments for sure. But I was just as impressed with the two leaping alley-oops Wade threw in overtime. It seemed like he was seeing everything two seconds before everyone else.

What did Pedro Martinez say a few years back about the Yankees? "I just tip my tap and call the Yankees my daddy" or something. Seems fitting.

Here's what BDL had to say:

The Bulls tried Hinrich, they tried Ben Gordon, they tried a zone, and they tried doubling Wade as soon as he dribbled the ball past halfcourt. They even tried Derrick Rose. None of it mattered. Wade completely and utterly dominated Chicago. He seemed a few inches, a few more breaks, and a few more connections away from a 60-point night with 17 assists. No joke. You almost feel as if he could have done more (not in terms of effort, just everything going right), but context and teammates and the spin of the ball did him wrong.

His stats -- and that line might be the most impressive that I've typed out this season -- don't even do his night justice. He was scary. What a fantastic player.


And here's the final sequence:

On the plus side we have a pair of new ChicagoSportsWeekInReview (via SportsProse) videos to cheer us up. Can we call Paula Farris Chicago's version of Erin Andrews? Every city needs one.

The Bulls and Heat both deserved to lose and win that game. Wade ripped my stomach out.

On the subject of hot sideline people. Where does TUP stand on the new Comcast reporter?

She's from Orland Park dude, my hometown! Approve, on that alone.

Every player that got time yesterday on either team had at least one foul except for D Wade. That's not just a fluke.

I could deal with some more Paula on TUP. Maybe some alterred version of hot or not. Because she is obviously hot.

Speaking of hot or not, why hasn't this trend been resurrected yet on TUP? Ricky, those articles were Pulitzer worthy.

I ran out of friends :(

if you're gonna try to be funny in something sports related its either hit or miss. and this, was that was a miss

"I have a MacBook, I drive a Volkswagen -- Jetta -- and I love the Dave Matthews Band, bro."

Come on that's pure gold.
