Youre in Our Backyard Now
The Miami Heat opened the 2010 NBA season against the Eastern
Conference Champion Boston Celtics two weeks ago. It did not go well.
The Heat were hit by a lack of cohesion and a rabid playoff-like
Boston crowd. It was like a storm of deficiency and doucheyness.
Dwyane Wade was hit by a powerful case of The Suck after coming off a
hamstring injury that had him sidelined for most of the preseason.
Chris Boshs game was nowhere to be found either. Meanwhile, LeBron
James was at his regal best as he nearly single-handedly brought the
Heat back for the win. But the teamwide lethargy was too much. As was
the Boston crowd. The Celtics faithful even managed to drum up an
Overrated! chant to taunt the Three Kings. An overrated chant
during the first game of an 82-game schedule. Thats how the douchey
faithful roll. Well, now that the cohesion has developed the Heat
has been rolling every opponent since opening night its our turn
to host the Celtics and their version of the Big Three at American
Airlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) on Thursday night. Lets
show the world how we do things down here. Tip-off is 8 p.m. Tickets
start at $15. Visit nba.com/heat.
