We would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving from the people here at AUCH! With that, here are the top 5 Miami Heat stuffings from the last decade.
The entire NBA is off on Thanksgiving, including your very own Miami Heat. Having the chance to take part in all of what are sure to be enjoyable and jolly times during the Holiday, they will have a chance to fill their faces with all the little delectables that this holiday has to offer, just like the rest us.
We can be sure there will be a turkey, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, and other things like that. However, no Thanksgiving ensemble is complete without just a little bit of stuffing. With that in mind, here are your top 5 stuffings from the Miami Heat over the last decade, in no order of course as they are all just too good to rank.
Dwyane Wade stuffs it all over Perk
We now know that Kendrick Perkins makes his days now by being that funny, lovable, laughable comic relief type of analyst on ESPN’s The Jump with Rachel Nichols. What I can also promise you is that he was neither funny, loving, nor laughing at what happened to him back in 2011 at the hands of the man himself, one Dwyane Wade. Once you see it, you’ll know what we mean and why we just couldn’t resist but to include this one on this list.
LeBron stuffs Tiago Splitter at the cup
Many of us probably can remember this particular play like it was yesterday. It was game two of the NBA Finals and the San Antonio Spurs were already up 1-0 in the series. En route to winning the series, LeBron James had this massive block on Tiago Splitter that signified what the Miami Heat would ultimately do the Spurs’ title chances that year.
The Bird did the stuffing here
Oftentimes when thinking about “stuffing”, you are considering the fact that the bird is usually the one getting stuffed. Well, in this scenario, the bird was doing the stuffing. Having to face questions surrounded their toughness during the series, as mentioned in the following clip, Chris Andersen “The Birdman” had decided that enough was enough for him.
While the stakes weren’t as high here as they were in the previous two instances, it meant just as much. In Dwyane Wade’s and LeBron’s first matchup since Flash made his return to Miami in 2018. D-Wade had two really good blocks on his good buddy. It was most appropriate and for three reasons, because it was LeBron, because it was still D-Wade’s house, and because he is one of, if not the very best, shot-blocking guards of all time.
LeBron James stuffs Jason Terry in the rim
Well, LeBron didn’t quite stuff Jason Terry in the rim, but he might as well had, as it would have had the same embarrassing effect. In all fairness, The Jet was on an island and caught by himself off of a steal in transition. No matter the circumstances, LeBron made sure somebody paid for their mistake, and boy did he ever.
So, as you continue to enjoy your stuffing on this holiday, think about all the great stuffings that the Miami Heat have given you over the past decade. Don’t eat too much though, but Heat all you want, because well, we are All U Can Heat! Again, Happy Thanksgiving!
