Is it possible to hate Joakim Noah and LeBron James at the same time? Maybe so, but if that’s your situation, then I suggest that you probably don’t love basketball as much as you think you do. I’m a much bigger fan of Jo-No than I am of LeBron, but I have to agree with Noah’s sentiment here. I didn’t want the Heat to succeed like this, but here we are and I respect the way they got to this point.

Bottom line? LeBron, Wade, Bosh and company came into this season planning to chew bubble gum and kick ass. It appears that Hollywood is all out of bubble gum.
