Yesterday, Dwyane Wade earned a berth on the All-Star roster for the 11th consecutive season. Barkely, naturally, felt he didn't deserve the honor.

Five Reasons Dan Marino's 1984 Season Was the Greatest Ever by a Quarterback

Categories: Sports

It's hard to believe this year marked the 30th anniversary of the last time the Miami Dolphins appeared in a Super Bowl, but here we are, three decades later. In 1984, Dan Marino punted just about every NFL record into the sun on his way to leading the Dolphins to a 14-2 record, an AFC Championship, and a trip to Super Bowl XIX to face off against Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers. The Dolphins would lose 38-16 in the big game, but it was assumed the Fins would be back in no time with a QB like Marino. Nope. Not since.

We sit here 30 years later wondering how it all went wrong and how Marino never got back to the Super Bowl. It's depressing to even think about.

What isn't depressing to think about is Marino's 1984 season. To this day, that season is the greatest a quarterback has ever had, Peyton Manning be damned.

Here's the good news: The Miami Dolphins just need to add eight above-average players to their roster to be Super Bowl contenders. That's not that many.

The bad news? Of the 30 teams that didn't make the Super Bowl this year, the Dolphins rank 17th in how many "good" or "elite" players the team would need to add.

Hassan Whiteside made the Chicago Bulls pay the price for his low NBA2K ratings, and now they are all dead. There are no longer any Chicago Bulls; sorry 'bout it, PETA. Chicago has also vanished. Tough break, Obama.

After taking five business days to get his sprained ankle right, Whiteside rose on the Sabbath to give the entire Chicago Bulls team the business end of a 14-point, 13-rebound, NBA-season-high-Heat-franchise-record-12-block 96-84 win. After the game, Whiteside had quite an answer as to why he Ctrl-Alt-Deleted the entire city of Chicago.

Better days.
The Miami Heat is under .500, and that sucks. Are we all together on this one? OK, good -- we can move on to less depressing facts of Heat fan life, like the things that haven't sucked in 20014-15 thus far. There are a few things that haven't sucked, I swear, so stick with me here.

After four straight trips to the NBA Finals and basketball that damn near stretched until the Fourth of July every summer, the team has had a frying pan named "reality" hit it right in the face -- and reality really bites. It's cool, though -- we Heat fans have pulled up our big-boy pants and figured out a way to make ourselves feel better. Like, for instance, we aren't the New York Knicks!

The latest: Instead of starting a team from scratch, David Beckham intends to buy the LA Galaxy and move them to Miami.

Why Aren't Seahawks Fans Getting Slammed Like Heat Fans For Leaving Before Comeback?

Seattle's "12th Man" fans are renowned as the best in football.
Well, well, well, what do we have here, Heat fans? It seems to me what we have here is some members of what many refer to as the best fan base in sports leaving a championship game early with their team on the verge of a loss. Crazy, right? Damn, that sounds familiar as hell. I feel like this has happened before. Oh, now I remember.

Some Seahawks fans felt the NFC Championship Game was a goner last night with their team down 15 with 2:09 left in regulation, then all shit broke loose, and hope was restored. The fans apparently heard about it on their way to their cars, and then, well, you know how this ends -- not well for the people that decided a five minute start on their walk of shame was worth missing the end of a hugely important game.

It's no secret that University of Miami men's basketball coach Jim Larranaga has a rather zen outlook on life and basketball. He schools his team on the teachings of Deepak Chopra. Yet, we couldn't have imagined that the team's success in knocking off highly ranked programs this year could be thanks to zen butterfly rituals.
