Fan Friday: The Bomb Squad

The NBA finals are well underway, with San Antonio up 3 games to 1 against the Miami Heat. I have been such a Miami Heat hater over the past few years. Other than the obvious bad blood with the Mavs (and every other team in the NBA), I simply don't like the monopoly the Heat holds in the league. 

But, while listening to Mike and Mike the other day, they brought up a good point. Did anyone hate on the Chicago Bulls back in the 90s? No, we all loved them without giving it a second thought. We even loved Rodman! How is that team any different from the Heat of today? It really isn't. So why do we all hate the Heat? 

They are pretty lovable if you step back and look at them without such a fiery heatred (hah) in your eyes. I mean, they've mastered the art of the photobomb, and I gotta admit, Bosch, Wade and LeBron all look like the three best friends that anyone could have.










Now, I'm probably not going to be rooting for them, because it is just too fun seeing LeBron lose, but maybe I'll just pull back on the vocalization of the hatred. What do you think about the Heat? Love em or hate em?

  7. OMG I am laughing with these pics to be honest I'm not a heat fan but I think its mainly because of Lebron James and his nasty stuck up attitude.

  11. it was seriously just all because of those nine (?) little words "I'm going to take my talents to South Beach." Honestly though since then I feel like he's really been one of the less arrogant/douche bagerous "big" players out there... which I'd imagine is hard when you're, ya know, arguably the best person to ever play the game. it's not fair and I even have grown to like him a little... but for some reason, I love seeing him (them) lose too. can't explain it.

  15. I use to be a piston girls but after I moved to FL I become a Heat fan. I truly don't watch the sport. I'm a football girl.

  16. I can't stand Lebron, so the Heat are a no-go. But when it comes to sports, I always root Dallas teams first, then any Texas teams. If neither is an option, I just don't care!

  17. I don't like them because of LeBron, but otherwise, I don't mind them. I don't really care about the NBA anymore, though.

  18. Those are too funny! I'm just glad we don't have to listen to endless "Is Lebron in the top five" debates until next year!
