Well, the 2013-14 NBA season is officially underway, and everyone is pretty excited. There’s just one problem: LeBron James and the Miami Heat are the favorites to win it all. Again. Does that thought put a scowl on your face? Yeah, you’re not alone.
For a variety of reasons, the Miami Heat are one of the most disliked sports teams of our time. Some people hate them because they just bought championships rather than earning them, which apparently violates some principle of sports justice. Some people hate them because they kinda held a victory celebration before they’d even won anything, which made them seem like a bunch of cocky a-holes. And, of course, some people hate them just because they’re jealous.
Whatever the reason, most NBA fans would love to see the Heat get knocked off this year by the Bulls, Pacers, Nets, Thunder, Spurs, or Clippers. Hell, pretty much anybody. And it’s you people that I’m sucking up to today with this list of GIFs that will only piss you off more. Ready to get your hate on? Good. Let’s do this.
