Lebron, with the "Chosen one" tattoo, the "king" stuff , Jordan's number, and the not one or two or three junk asked for it.

I have no vested interest in any of the teams left, I can't stand the Celtics, never could and that comes from the '80s with them beating the Sixers, I certainly don't like the Heat who thought winning the NBA championship would be a cakewalk, but I don't hate either of them. I'm rooting for OKC because Durant is my favorite player left, then Pierce, and lastly would be Wade.


They are the better matchup for OKC. There is no way I would watch a OKC/Boston Finals so i can see the Celtics get swept. So that's why I;m pulling for the Heat to win 2 in a row because they would be my shot for someone to stop OKC.

As a Heat fan, it is at the shame time appalling the amount of hate this team gets and also exciting: I, and I am sure I am not the only one - have never felt so close to the team as now. When you are hated you kinda stick together.

You take a trip to the ESPN forums (that I am sure are not very different from other forums) and nobody cares about basketball: it's all about Lebrick, Lechoke, Lebum, you get the drill. It is amazing to me, an American who wasn't born in this country, to see how people can hate a guy for doing something stupid on TV but not hate people who actually hurt the USA badly, from greedy bankers, to a former President who sent us to a war under false pretenses....

I read the comments of those anti-heat members and somehow I can't avoid thinking it's people with an empty or sorry life. I mean, there have been players I disliked or teams, but "hate"? No, it takes more to me than being a Jets player to hate somebody even if I am a fan of everything Miami.

Dislike, ignore, but reserve hate for when it's needed and deserved.
I use to be a Heat Fan, but I hate all the fake ass Miami Heat fans, that follows only LeBrick.

I use to like LeBrick, but he start calling himself "King" which he is not, showed terrible sportsmanship in the Conference finals vs Orlando not shaking the teams hands (Which he did in several series vs Orlando and other teams).


Nobody and I mean NOBODY supported Miami when wade was carrying that team. NOBODY. No Real Heat Fans. What about Steve Smith Days? Caron Butler, Lamar Odom? Rafer? Anybody ever supported the Heat in those days? These Heat Fans now? Probably not, so thats why I HATE HEAT FANS NOW.

So **** LeBrick, **** Miami, **** The Heat , And **** the Heat Fans.

The champagne is much sweeter when you overcome adversity, not take the easy way to glory.
Yeah I got past the decision. It's still the guy's character and personnel I dislike.

FTR it wasn't Seattle Fans who ran the sonics out, it was the blockheaded owner.
Seattle always was and will be a better city than that piece of crap OKC in the Midwest. Much more classier, and fan supportive. Seattle was my favorite team! I Hope the Sacramento Kings move to Seattle. Seattle Kings! Seattle already is in King County

I actually was pulling for the Mavs in 2006 because I hated Shaq and then in 2011 I pull for the Heat because I was a fan of Lebron and then the Mavs win

LOL
