Seriously, the thought of Lebron and the Heat winning a title makes me sick. Physically sick. There has never been a more unlikeable collection of whiny brats in the history of sports. Unfortunately they also happen to be outstanding basketball players.
What’s interesting is listening to the Miami fans (who are THE worst sports fans imaginable) and pro-Heat media complain about the scorn they are receiving. They constantly talk about the fact that the Heat are the most hated team ever, which nobody denies– but they never manage to take the next step and ask themselves WHY the Heat are so despised. So here’s a quick recap:
- The Decision. We don’t need to say anything else. Lebron is an insufferable arrogant prick.
- The Preseason Parade. Watching the “Big Three” emerge onto the floor of their arena made everyone with any sense of decency and humility sick. Celebrating like you’ve won a championship before you have had a single practice is never a good PR move. The arrogance of Lebron in particular, standing with his arms crossed and drinking in the adulation, was disgusting.
- Lebron throwing his coach under the bus. When the Heat predictably struggled out of the gate, Lebron and his people immediately tossed Spoelstra under the bus. From starting rumors to physically bumping the coach during a game, Lebron has made it clear throughout the season that he has no respect for anyone but himself.
- Heat fans. Miami has among the worst sports fans on the planet. 14 months ago, nobody cared about the Heat. Just like nobody cares about the Marlins, except when they make the playoffs. Even worse, the idiot moron bandwagon fans started jumping off as the Heat struggled. They called Bosh soft, said Lebron wasn’t clutch, clamored for Spoelstra to be fired, and generally made fools of themselves. It’s an incredibly ignorant fan base that clearly expected an undefeated season and then bailed out at the first sign of trouble. Now that the Heat (again, predictably) have gotten their game right, the bandwagon fans are back in force. For those of us who grew up as actual sports fans it’s infuriating– because if anyone did NOT deserve to see their fans win a ring, it was Heat fans.
So now as the rest of America turns to Dirk and the Mavericks, we get to listen to a stream of complaints about “haters” as if there weren’t a million good reasons to hate.
This arrogant team and their moronic fanbase clearly deserve each other… what they DON’T deserve is a championship. There is no justice!
