As Heat Prepare for Celtics Tonight, Hater Schadenfreude Blows Up The Internet
Let's hate these three with everything we got. Ready? 1, 2, 3... HATE!!!
The Miami Heat host the Boston Celtics tonight at the American Airlines Arena. But did you know Miami is 5-3 eight games into the 2010-11 NBA season? They are! And because they've turned into The Most Irrationally Reviled Team In The Universe, sports writers, commentators and fans alike have all recently stated that this Miami Heat team is doomed. DOOMED! [lightning crash sounds] No point in playing tonight, then!
It all began with the season-opener, when the Heat were embarrassed by the Eastern Conference Champion Boston Celtics on national television, much to the delight of everyone living outside the city of Miami. But the hate from that night came mostly from fans who tuned in to see the team's demise, and from Bill Simmons, who gets paid a gazillion dollars by ESPN so he can tell us all how Boston sports is so much better and substantially more significant than any other city's sports in his weekly 100,000 word columns.
The way I figure it, the Heat should be done with this pesky basketball season in mid-May, around the time the best four teams are playing in the conference finals. Because the Heat aren't one of the best four teams in basketball. Never thought I'd write that sentence. Not this season. But there it is.
Okafor torched that group for 26. Millsap had 46. What's Dwight Howard going to do next time he plays the Heat -- hang a hundred?
