Oh Chris Webber, you’re a bad man.
Mocking the Heat after a fifth consecutive loss, this one to the Blazers.
I have mixed feelings on this.
Between LeBron’s defiance, Wade’s pouty tweets and Bosh’s abnormally high cheekbones, the Miami Heat are absolutely deserving of scorn and ridicule.
Yesterday, LaMarcus Aldridge and Gerald Wallace put in 26 and 22 respectively, and the visiting Blazers were able to overcome 69 points from LeBron and Wade in large part due to their bench, which outscored Miami's 41-8.
The Heat have now fallen to third in the East amid rumors of infighting, and the suddenly hot Los Angeles Lakers will be coming to town on Thursday.
Wade, from the AP:
"The Miami Heat are exactly what everyone wanted, losing games," Wade said. "The world is better now because the Heat is losing."
Yikes. Grouchy. I'm not sure now would be the time to ask him if by using "Heat are" and "Heat is" within the span of two sentences he's effectively trying to cover all his grammatical bases.
I have no sympathy for the Heat.
These guys threw themselves in the world’s face, are now getting defensive about the amount of attention they’re receiving, and they deserve to be lambasted for that.
My ulterior sentiments come simply from the postulation that perhaps Chris Webber is not the man to be doling it out.
Chris Webber, of 4 Glass House Lane, on the corner of no championships and minimal leadership skill.
To be honest, the whole thing still strikes me as odd.
Crying in a regular season game?
The way this Miami Heat trio markets themselves I wouldn’t be surprised to find we’re in the initial stages of a guerrilla advertising campaign for Gatorade: Cry–Hydration for the Sensitive Athlete.
Because empaths buy sneakers too.
