Spurs’ Jeff Ayres Says the Miami Heat Tried Taking Out His Knees

During their first trip back to South Beach since last June’s NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs had a terrible time. Not only were they smoked by the defending champs, but Tony Parker nearly got hurt, and Jeff Ayres accused the Miami Heat of going after his legs. Per the Express-News: “Ayres, who changed his surname from Pendergraph during the offseason, was ejected from Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals for grappling with the Heat’s Norris Cole. Ayres felt no love lost in Miami after switching to the Spurs. ‘That’s what it felt like,’ Ayres said. ‘People were trying to take out my knees and stuff. I was like, it’s preseason take a chill pill.’”

    People still use “chill pill”?

  • CCT

    They already took your heart, why not your knees too?

    If they were looking to take out a guys knees, they’d aim a little higher than you, Jeff.

    “I was like, it’s preseason take a chill pill.”

    So, it would be understandable during the regular season or the playoffs?

    It is most likely that no one was trying to do anything to this bum.

    Might as well blame anything else on the heat while so much hatred is going on already. Late on your rent? Well the Miami Heat did that to me.

    Did Pendergrass get married this offseason and take his husband’s last name?

  • JD

    It says it in the article.

  • Theraflu

    He probably accuses the Heat for being the reason of global warming too I guess…

  • cbranson05

    but how do any of u know if he has a reasonable point before u diss him? did u see the referenced play?

  • Glojam

    Right. Since you’re such an important player. You won’t have to worry about that much longer because the regular season is almost here and your ass will be right back on the bench.

    Ayres is only making himself look bad.

    It’s easier to buy a championship than develop one. Good to see the heat fans full of voice again. No injuries for 3 years and a lot of luck last season got u the title. After this season, we will be talking about how much the heat have under achieved with their star stubbed roster
