So, yes, Lakers Nation, hate the Heat. Their bandwagon fan base, Chris Bosh’s constant pining for relevancy, Dwyane Wade’s smug “Hey, Jordan may have not asked to play with Magic and Bird, but he’d have surely let them come serve in his court” smile, along with the pompous LeBron James… they will be an easy team to hate, I assure you. And I will be right there with you, cheering for an implosion of epic proportions.
But, be grateful for them and the opportunity they provided for the legacy of the greatest player to ever don the Forum Blue and Gold.
Because, right now, that player is leaned back in the throne room and rubbing his hands together, giddy for the opportunity.
