Heat Versus Thunder for NBA Finals: Let the Oklahoma City Trash Talk Begin

Thumbnail image for lebron-tiny-violin.gif
Anyone with a passing interest in sports is about to be inundated with talk of King James versus Prince Durant, Oklahoma City versus Miami, a wholesome young crop of basketball players versus the most hated/worshiped trio in the NBA. Sports rivalries are fun, especially the kind that are gratuitously hyped to increase Nielsen ratings.

So while it's still early, before the Miami Heat face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first game of the NBA finals tomorrow, we've compiled a highly unscientific list of reasons Miami is clearly superior in every way.*

Miami: Face-eating zombie

Oklahoma City: Timothy McVeigh

Miami: South Beach
Oklahoma City: South of Kansas

Miami: Hates Texas
Oklahoma City: Hates Texas

Miami: Gloria Estefan
Oklahoma City: Toby Keith

Miami: Arepas
Oklahoma: Fried cow testicles

*None of these reasons has anything to do with basketball.

I would never, under any circumstances, make fun of a deadly bombing. I was comparing two famous criminals associated with two different cities. If Ted Kaczynski was from your town, I would have mentioned him instead. I meant no offense to the victims of McVeigh's heinous crime.

168 lives, including 19 children under the age of 6 died in OK City so Lisa Rab could make a pointless reference to a basketball game, never mind the CYA comment. Good job Lisa! I'll bet that you have that mantle cleared now for your Pulitzer.

You to mention the worst thing to happen to the Oklahoma community in a basketball post, shows complete lack of class and ignorance. How dare you!

That's the most retarded thing I've ever read! If u want to see the next big superstar rise, watch Durant! If u want to see grown men cry when they don't get there way, watch the Miami floppers! Leaving on wheel chairs and being scraped up off the floor is all the heat can do...

You say you would never, but you did! That's absolutely awful. And I agree with Dusty D Jones, I highly doubt you'd use the terrorists in 9/11 as a comparison, why should Timothy McVeigh be any different?! The people who were hurt and killed that day were family members of OKC residents. Someone who caused that much harm shouldn't be used as a comparison so you can talk Miami up! Fail.

Heinous crime? It's called a terrorist act against our own American citizens. Nice excuse, you and your editor should be stripped of your jobs. Would you have made the same comment about 9/11 if NY was in finals?! Doubt it. I hope you continue to be scruitinized for your ignorance.
