Top 10 Miami Heat Haters in the Media

The Miami Heat will begin their NBA title defense next week. It's been a harrowing journey since the Big Three came together in the Summer of 2010. The whole world watched and hated and delighted when they failed to beat the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals.

Then they were forced to eat it hard when LeBron and the boys brought home the hardware in 2012.

No one ate it harder than the national media, which not only fed the hatred but openly rooted for Miami to fail and collapse.

So as the Heat approach the new season, we count down the ten biggest Heat haterz in the media, and wonder how they like their crow cooked:

10. Adrian Wojnarowski (Yahoo! Sports): He's not so much a part of the HATERZ as he just seems to play to the crowd. Which is a shame, because Wojnarowski is a pretty good NBA columnist. Throughout the two years LeBron's been with the Heat, Woj would trot out the "Heat Experiment Is Soft And Won't Work" meme. Look at this heaping pile of raccoon shit.

The LeBron James experiment not only teetering on COLLAPSE. But Erik Spoelstra is SOFT.

It's like he looked up the most Googled words people look up when they want to read about the Heat, and threw them together in a mangled mess of a column.

The only relevance to James' words in the locker room is the absence of malice over losing, the sense that a Game 5 loss when Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen missed 32 of 43 shots is somehow palatable. Hey, we were close. We had our chances. What else can you ask for? The superstar doesn't ask for anything else: he demands it. Of himself, of others.

Mind you, this was written before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals when the so-called Failed Experiment unleashed his Cobra Dick on the entire city of Boston to the tune of 45 motherfucking points.

But, no, TOTALLY in collapse, guy.
