heat fans suckThe Miami Heat pulled off a spectacular come from behind victory in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. It was a comeback for the ages. Too bad a good portion of the fans who showed up did not get to see it.

Some people in attendance started streaming out of American Airlines Arena with a few minutes left in the game. It was amazing to see fans abandon their team when they still had a chance. And even if they didn’t, you should stay till the end. That’s what being a fan is all about.

And once those alleged fans were outside and realized that the Heat were coming back and sent the game into overtime they tried desperately to get let back in the arena. Luckily, security did not let them back in. Those bastards didn’t deserve to see what their team accomplished.

Victor Oquendo, a sports anchor for WPLG, live tweeted the whole sorry event.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows a frequently refer to Heat supporters as “fans.” I add the quotation marks because in my opinion most of them are not true fans. They are a bunch of bandwagoners who followed LeBron James to South Beach. I continually challenge said “fans” to tell me who Tim Hardaway is and I have yet to find one who can tell me without Googling it first.

So pay attention Heat “fans” this is why you are hated, not because your team is so great. You are hated because you suck.

I know the NBA Conference Finals have barely started but I want to skip ahead and talk about the NBA Finals.

It seems pretty obvious to me that the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are going to win their series. I don’t want to disparage the Boston Celtics or the Oklahoma City Thunder by already writing them off but I can’t see it turning out any other way. (Okay, maybe I wanted to disparage the Celtics a little bit.)

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are playing at such a high level its almost scary. They aren’t getting too much out of the rest of the team but so far they haven’t needed it. They will need it when they meet up with the Spurs in the Finals, though.

And that’s where the problems will start. The Spurs are just too good and too deep to be beaten. The Heat will not be able to keep Tim Duncan out of the paint and no one has had an answer for Manu Ginobili. It also doesn’t hurt that they have one of the best point guards in the league with Tony Parker.

LeBron and DWade will have to score 80 combined points each game if the Heat are to have a chance to beat the Spurs. And I just don’t see that happening. That’s why I’m picking the Spurs to win in 6 games.

I know it seems odd that I’m willing to ignore the Conference Finals happening right now but the Heat and Spurs seem so far ahead of the competition they are bound to meet in the Finals. I hate to spoil the playoff for you but this is what’s going to happen.
