Re: Miami Heat- Good Job...Good effort.
My point was that a lot of teams in the NBA 'buy' their championships, so if the logic further supports my claim, then I'll take it. And by "left" I meant "was on other teams for like a decade", not "didn't play basketball at all for a couple years". The point is that this Heat team is not much different from many many championship teams, where a nucleus of one homegrown superstar and a few homegrown contributors is surrounded by acquired talent. There are not many NBA teams that are able to build through the draft, and the ones that manage to do so usually have to suck for several years like the Thunder and the Bulls in order for that to work. Free agency plays a major role in the success of NBA teams.
And I understand that a lot of people are rooting FOR the Thunder, but you can't deny that there are tons of people that are more excited about the prospects of James failing than the Thunder succeeding. Probably more of the former than the latter.
