Heat Versus Thunder for NBA Finals: Let the Oklahoma City Trash Talk Begin
Anyone with a passing interest in sports is about to be inundated with talk of King James versus Prince Durant, Oklahoma City versus Miami, a wholesome young crop of basketball players versus the most hated/worshiped trio in the NBA. Sports rivalries are fun, especially the kind that are gratuitously hyped to increase Nielsen ratings.
So while it's still early, before the Miami Heat face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first game of the NBA finals tomorrow, we've compiled a highly unscientific list of reasons Miami is clearly superior in every way.*

Oklahoma City: South of Kansas
Miami: Hates Texas
Oklahoma City: Hates Texas
Miami: Gloria Estefan
