The Philadelphia Eagles Are NOT The Miami Heat
It isn’t even the same thing. It’s like comparing Khloe K to Kim K. It’s like comparing Kris Humphries to Ray J. It’s like comparing Bruce Jenner’s new face to his old face. It’s like comparing Scott Disick to Tyrone Biggums. It’s like comparing Lamar Odom to Scottie Pippen. Ahhhh, there it is- full circle back to the NBA.
But seriously, comparing the Heat to the Eagles is the dumbest thing that anyone has ever done. Unless you are the lady pictured above. They aren’t even close to the same thing, and yet I hear it every week, especially after the Eagles 1-3 start. The Heat, by signing LeBron James and Chris Bosh, signed the two best free agents and potentially best players in the entire NBA. When you throw in the re-signing of D Wade it becomes even more dominant and less similar to what the Eagles did.
Who did the Eagles really even sign? The cream of their free agent crop was Nnamdi Asomugha who was the consensus best free agent cornerback available. While that was a quality pickup, the debate on whether he was even the best corner in the NFL still rages. For the purpose of this article let’s give him credit for equating to “LeBron”. But other than his signing, who else did the Eagles even sign that was in the class of a D Wade or Chris Bosh?
The Heat have two of the best three non-centers in the entire NBA, while the Eagles have maybe one player who is the best at his position in Vick.
So can we please just stop the nonsense? As long as 22 guys comprise a starting unit for a football team, there is no comparison to basketball in general. Especially not in regards to what Miami did in last year’s free agent period.
Or, to Bruce Jenner’s new face.
