“At that point it was me. Obviously we went through a lot last year. It was unfair some of the stuff that we had to endure but we grew from it. That’s over with. We move on to whenever we play basketball again and we will be a different team.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: It’s relative.
Yes, Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and the Miami Heat endured a massive backlash last year and were the undisputed league villain.
Was it unfair, though?
On the one hand, this trio handled their South Beach union with as much modesty and class as Kanye West at an awards show.
On the other hand, Bosh, James, and Wade stay on the right side of the law, take care of their kids, and are involved with charity.
So to lump James in with Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and Tiger Woods may be a tad harsh.
Of course, the public is split. The Heat are as polarizing and captivating a team to take to an NBA floor or compete in a North American sports league.
Perhaps the Heat were treated poorly, however, the public will not have sympathy for three highly paid professional athletes.
Instead, The Three Kings should embrace being the villain. The sooner they accept being the bad guy, the sooner they win that ever elusive championship.
And only then will the hoopla, controversy, and speculation teeter off.
