Oh, so much hysterical blubbering about the Miami Heat's terrible weekend, capped off with a one-point loss to the Chicago Bulls on national TV on Sunday. Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune, hello!
It was the week when James and the "Big Three'' were exposed as big losers -- bullies who can't deal with a fair fight. The Heat can beat up the lousy teams, but they can't beat top teams.
I have to say, it's a nice change from the "soft whiny crybaby" nonsense circling after Erik Spoelstra told the world a few Heat players cried after the loss. Now they are bullies who poach weak teams and can't hold their own against the other big kids. Because they lost by one point to a really, really good team.
Rosenbloom also builds Derrick Rose's case by calling Dwight Howard a "whiny, cheap-shot goof." And of LeBron James and 2006 NBA Finals MVP Dwyane Wade, he says, "A hundred-million dollars apiece has to make that the most expensive pair of chokers in sports history." This is what your regional daily newspaper considers valuable commentary, Chicago. Enjoy!
