FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
FRIDAY: Rob Manfred, Brady Quinn

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix joined the show to break down the NBA Finals.

Mannix weighed in on where the blame lies. He said it probably starts with Dwyane Wade struggling.

“Last night he was just awful,” Mannix said. “It looked like his knees just weren’t there.”

Mannix also noted that the Heat are getting nothing out of the point guard spot. “Right now, Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole are liabilities,” Mannix said.

Mannix noted that it’s tough for the Heat to defend the Spurs and it’s demoralizing to chase all those passes.

Mannix also jumped into the Carmelo Anthony rumors. He said executives around the League are telling him that they don’t expect all those players to give up money in their contracts to help the Heat get under the cap. Mannix said LeBron would give up money because he makes so much elsewhere, but the other three wouldn’t.
