SuperFriends to bring back Miami Swagger?
All of us remember the dancing that went on with the Cleveland Cavaliers. James and the gang would put a whooping on you and then they would dance and clown on you while you had to continue to play out a sorry blowout defeat in shame. We saw how it offended players around the league like Joakim Noah. Now, it seems, you will see it for the better part of 100 games a year.
It was evident at the introduction ceremony. These guys feel like they are the best in the business and do not care how you feel about what they do. They will win. They will win big and they will make any apologies for it. Miami - are you ready for this? I think you are. Quite frankly, this is the one thing that I appreciate about the Miami sports scene. We make great villains.
The Bad Boys of the NBA are back. Except, in this case, it is more like Martin Lawrence and Will Smith than Dennis Rodman and Bill Laimbeer. It is going to be classic comedy all the way as we laugh all the way to the title. Is it sportsmanship? No. Do I care? No. Let others complain about our behavior, all we have to say is scoreboard. There is no team that will stop this team at full strength. Bet the house on it. Too much motivation and too much Miami swagger. We already won.
