I know who he is but I feel like I'm not old enough to truly understand why I should hate him.
I am old enough. At the time I NEVER hated any coach more tha. Riley with the Lakers. The last loss to them still enrages me. I threw a chair at a shithole bar when Magic but that hook shot.

My only issue is my wonderful 89 year old Mother in Law loves the Heat. Plus she cheered for the Celtics against the Sixers & Raptors. Plus she’s all alone in Boca plus my wife cheered for the Heat last series even though she’s barely watched basketball before 2 weeks ago during the 30 something years we’ve lived together.


Plus I despise Dwayne Wade for that cheap shit hurting Rondo
Do I will HATE the Heat with as much silence as I can muster.

Riley is really the only one I dislike over there. Spoelstra is every bit the coach Nurse is, but without the "please punch me" attitude.
The only player that bothers me is Jae Crowder. It seems that every time I see him play, he's pulling some fake tough guy stunt. A lot more than he did when he was here. I think he's going to try to bait Smart.

If it gives you any reference, I grew up during the height of the Celtics-Lakers rivalry and Pat Riley was their coach. To this day, as much as I hate the Yankees, I've never harbored the same loathing for them that I do for the Lakers.

Hmmm. I'm sure someone will piss us off eventually, but I'm having a hard time drumming up any hate for Miami.
In no particular order:
Shaq's FT% leading to "Hack-a-Shaq," The '72 Dolphins, Derek Jeter, Lamar Odom, Mar-a-Lago, The identity-thief who targeted me a few years ago, Jimmy Johnson and Vinny Testaverde, Russian Mafia Money Launderers, Traffic, Construction and overpriced food and real estate, sinking ground/sea level rise, algae blooms and Pat Riley.

If all else fails: Miami is in our way. It's the playoffs. You should always be pissed off.

Yeah, I was born in '93 so I missed all the Celtics-Lakers rivalry in the '80s. All I know is the watered down version in the late 2000s and Pat Riley as the president of the Heat. Well, fuck him anyway. Harass the Heat!

I mean, this is okay, but how you gonna call out the Dolphins, but not Shula and his belicheat bullshit, specifically?

I’m glad he is gone, but I will miss hating Nurse game after game.
Watched Game 7 again and noticed how well behaved Nurse was, including how much of the game he spent actually sitting in his chair. I wonder if he wasn't spoken to after the previous histrionics.

I hate Riley, I hate stupid Miami fans, I hate Jimmy Butler, I'm sure I'll hate Herro, I hate that Iggy basically told the Grizzlies to go fuck themselves, I hate people from Williams College. Let's fucking go Celtics!

To be that young and have the balls to step into LeBron in a game 7 with a trip to the championship on the line...
That's a great clip. But "look at those tatum highlights when he was young" makes me feel old. Almost as old as the fliers for crematoria and hearing aids that were in my mailbox this morning.

Underrated thing to hate the heat for: Stealing a title from Dirk and the Mavs on the backs of the worst ref performance in the Finals ever.

Just out of the dentist chair, the TV in front of me was advertising "The Rifleman" with a picture of Chuck Connors

That has to be a good sign.

I live in Minneapolis. I obviously hate the heat.

Plus Riley, taking-talents-to-South-Beach, and Jimmy Butler’s too-little-too-late Image Rehabilitation Tour. Screw them. We’re heading for #18...

We haven't even tipped off Game 1, and I'm already sick of hearing the phrase "chop it up."

It will probably happen eventually. By the end of every playoff series against the Celtics, the opposing team is a sworn enemy of mine. I had nothing against Toronto a few weeks ago and now we're all tripping over each other wanting to punch Lowry and Nurse in the face. We'll find something.
