Fated to be hated

22

This is mildly off-topic as it is not directly Blazer related, but this guy is one of the best sportswriters in the business and he raises an interesting question. How much will the Miami Heat be hated? Will it be a fleeting hate or have staying power? Could it approach our L*kers hate? My initial reaction is I could never hate a team more than the L*kers. Then, I ask myself "what team would you root for in a Lakers-Heat finals?" I start to let L... roll off my tongue and then my head explodes. What teams besides the L*kers and Heat do you hate? I suspect Jazz management thinks it's them. Does anybody out there think, "Well, if the Blazers don't win it this year... I hope the Heat get a trophy for Lebron to put in the Taj Mabron?"
