The Miami Heat showed Wednesday night why everyone feared them going into the season. They have the two best perimeter players on the planet in Lebron James and Dwayne Wade. They have a power forward that looks like a praying mantis in Chris Bosh, who, despite his looks and unwillingness to do anything but shoot 15-foot jump shot’s, should have a favorable matchup in the Eastern Conference Finals when he goes against Carlos Boozer. (The description I just used for Bosh also applies to Boozer, but Bosh has the edge because he doesn’t get injured at home while taking out the trash.)
The Heat also demonstrated Wednesday night why everyone not currently residing in Miami hates them so much. At the end of Game 5, the Heat celebrated like they had just won not one, but fourteen championships. After defeating the injury-riddled Boston Celtics, James took a knee at the end of the game; to contemplate what he had just accomplished, and reflect on how difficult it was to play through all of the distractions which plagued the Heat throughout this tumultuous season. Distractions he had nothing to do with, and the only explanation for all of the criticism thrown his way is everyone who disagreed with “The Decision” must be a racist.
As fun as it is to watch Lebron and Wade do work, I can’t imagine what their celebration will look like if they actually win an NBA Championship. This is why every basketball fan must come together to root against, what can only be described as the WWE joining forces with the NBA. Come on, America. We have come too far, worked too hard and fought against this type of oppression for too long; to turn back to the days of wildly over the top celebrations would be a major setback for our beloved country.
Let me hear you scream it, America: Here we go Bulls!…Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap…Here we go Bulls!
