Front runner?

When was the last time those teams won a championship?

:?

all the time when he was growing up in the nineties.


OK....cool...then why hate on a dude for liking the teams that he grew up being a fan of??

It's not like he is pimping Patriots gear one year, the Phillies gear the next.

Not really...I just think it is crazy for people to put so much time into hating on the kid.

I wanted the Heat to win because they are a Florida team...and truth be told, I am much more of a DWade fan than a LeBron fan.

well i was defending him about the leaving Cleveland thing. that doesn't bother me at all. but still, anybody who likes whoever is winning at the time... there is just something evil about that.

plus, i hate Yankee fans and Cowboy fans unless they are actually from New York or Dallas. a combined yankee/cowboy fan is the absolute worst.

I know nobody wants to hear this right now but Wade is a good guy. Beefore this season the biggest complaint about him was that he complained for calls too much, but he always said and did the right things off the court.

didn't wade cheat on his wife?

it's certainly not in question anymore, but good to know pippen isn't totally nuts...

Quote:
Scottie Pippen crowns Michael Jordan

By Nick Friedell
ESPNChicago.com
Archive

LISLE, Ill. -- Scottie Pippen said Friday he believes Michael Jordan is the greatest player in NBA history, despite remarks he made last month regarding Miami Heat forward LeBron James on ESPN Radio's "Mike and Mike In The Morning."

"The comments that I made were basically giving LeBron some props as a player, not to dismantle any player like Michael," Pippen said after a youth camp session at the Bulls/Sox academy. "We all know that he's the greatest player that ever played the game.

"I think it was taken a little bit out of context. I felt like I was drawing more of a conclusion from the statistics more than the accolades."

Pippen made the comments as the Heat eliminated the Chicago Bulls from the Eastern Conference finals.

"Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to play the game," Pippen said last month. "But I may go as far as to say LeBron James may be the greatest player to ever play the game because he is so potent offensively that not only can he score at will but he keeps everybody involved.

"You have to be on your P's and Q's on defense. No guy on the basketball court is a threat to score with LeBron James out there. Not only will LeBron dominate from the offensive end as well, but he's also doing it on the defensive end, which really makes him the complete package. He's able to get in those passing lanes, shoot those gaps and create transition opportunities where he is pretty much unstoppable."

Pippen said he's spoken to Jordan multiple times since he made the comments and there is no rift between the former teammates.

"I talk to Michael all the time," Pippen said. "There was no problem between me and Michael. I think [the media] chewed into it a little too much."

Pippen didn't appear to be very bothered by the backlash caused by his remarks.

"Ya know what? I kind of rolled off into the sunset, went down south and enjoyed no media, no TV and just enjoyed life," he said. "So I didn't really get a lot [of flak] from [the comments] as much as probably the organization had to deal with it. But I'm ready to move on from it."

Wade is pretty good at cultivating his media image. He is very much like Jordan in this respect but I think if you look below that manufactured surface you see the phony parts of him. He did cheat on his wife, supposedly gave her an STD, supposedly clubs it up in south beach and has orgies/sex parties.......and as whiney and butt hurt as he was all season about the media's perception of the heat its hard to believe he's a true character guy as a basketball player.

I find the fact he is writing an article for Newsweek having to do with parenting a little hypocritical if some or all of the rumors about him are true....but again, he went to the Michael Jordan school of portraying ones self in the media...

I still say that Mike Miller was responsible for that title.
