Oh, Happy Day! A team I can openly despise that isn't the Utah Jazz!

LeBron James owes the entire city of Cleveland breakfast.

What LeBron did last night was a dick move and this cannot be argued. 
(NPH wouldn't do that.)

That said - with the trio of LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, for the first time since the 2004 Los Angeles Lakers we will have a team in the NBA that will be exceedingly easy to root against.  (Not including the Utah Jazz - who are inherently easy to root against.)

That particular Laker team cut Robert Horry and replaced him with Karl Malone.  Nothing could be as insulting or in direct contravention of trying to win rings... but the Miami Heat are going to do their best to try to piss off everyone outside of South Beach.  Of course, if they really want to measure up to that Laker team, Wade needs to have sexual assault charges filed against him (here's your cue, Star Jones) and Chris Bosh needs to give everyone the middle finger on his YouTube channel.  Meanwhile, LeBron just needs to keep being LeBron.  He's quite adept at being a douchebag.  I think we can all agree on this now.

The Miami roster now has all of four players:  the above trio and Mario Chalmers.  Okay, so they drafted pretty much everyone selected in the 2nd round of this year's draft.  Including Pittman and my super sleeper Jarvis Varnado.  But they might need some, you know, actual NBA players to fill out their roster.

Pat Riley should take this opportunity to sign every player who has the personality trait of rubbing people the wrong way.  This is where guys like Matt Barnes, Jason Kidd, Shaquille O'Neal and others should sign for the minimum... it could be the NBA's version of the Oakland Raiders or the Baltimore Ravens.  All disliked players on one roster.

That said........... there's still no way I could hate this Miami team any more than I hate the Utah Jazz.  It's just not possible.  I really, really hate the Utah Jazz.
