Their Heating Up!

Posted: March 13, 2013 in Champion, Most hated, Superstars

The defending champions in the NBA; the Miami Heat are currently on a nineteen game win streak. The team that is most hated in the NBA don’t seem to be worried about how people feel about them or how much they are hated on. Ever since LeBron James and Chris Bosh teamed up with Dwayne Wade and the rest of the heat controversy began. The sports nation went crazy as the best of the best teamed up on one superstar filled team. Out of the five payers that start for the heat, three of them are always considered and placed into the all-star game on a annualy basis.

However, it wasn’t always sunny in Miami; for the Heat at least. The first year that the superstars joined together that was promised nothing less that a championship didn’t go as planned thanks to Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks who swept the Miami Heat 4-0 in the NBA finals where Nowitzki won his first NBA title. That was the biggest shocker in the sports world as everyone thought that the Mavericks wouldn’t stand a chance agaisnt the Miami Heat due to all of that superstar power and championship caliber status that comes with them. The Mavericks proved everyone wrong and not only won the NBA cahmpionship but swept the Miami heat.

In 2012 it was a new story for the Miami Heat as they played with more agression and meaning during the season. The ended up reaching the NBA finals once again. This time around they won they NBA championship and Lebron cashed in on his first NBA ring. It was a huge relieve off his shoulders because everyone in the sports world kept talking about how he was a great player but still didn’t have a ring. Now he can care less and let the people talk because his got one under his belt; however that is not enough for king James who promised more and more championships for the Miami Heat fans.

This season the Heat are playing with the same passion and aggression they did last season. They have won nineteen straight games and are literally on fire. They are playing unstopable this season and looks like they are well on their way to the NBA finals once again to compete for the championship which they are more than capabale of doing. Good luck to Lebron James and the Miami Heat, most people hate but i appreciate great players who block out all the talk and concentrate on they have to do.

This years superbowl was one of the most exciting, surprising and left the whole crowd in the darkness. Besides being the superbowl to be remebered as “the one that had the light outs”, it was actually a very competitive and entertaining game between two elite teams in the NFL. It was full of great players on both teams, some old veterans and some new and upcoming superstars. On the Ravens team the great Ray Lewis left in style with a superbowl ring. He was amongst quarterback Jay Flacco, running back Ray Rice and wider receievr Anquan Boldin. Who are all highly noticed and respected among NFL anlyasists, fans and team owners. On the 49er’s teams many upcoming superstar players such as Colin Kapaernick who is the quarterback, along with linebacker Patrick Wilis, wide receiver Randy Moss and running back Frank Gore, who are all great players who just came short of the superbowl championships.

However during this NFL offseason many great players are starting to get released from there teams in order to make their cap salary more efficient. Along with players getting released many are also getting traded to different teams as well. The most interesting factor was the Jay Flacco increase in pay due to him playing outstanding throughout the playoffs as he didn’t even throw a single interception and led his team to victory in the superbowl. He even ended up getting the MVP for the superbowl. Due to this the major discussin was Flacco’s new salary that he would be earning. Just recently he was offered a 120 million dollar contract for 6 years. This left the Ravens negative in their salary and they had to get rid of some other players even though Ray Lewis was retiring after this season.

They eneded up trading their well-known wide reciever Anquan Boldin who played very exceptional in the superbowl and helped very much in the victory over the 49er’s. They actually traded him away to no other that the runner-ups in the NFL, the San Fransico 49er’s. When i first heard this news i couldn’t help but to laugh because he just finished whooping them in the superbowl and now he joins them. However the 49er’s are a very powerful and talented team in the NFL and i wouldn’t be surprised if they won the superbowl next season, so things are looking for Anquan Boldin who started off with Arizona Cardinals who could never even think about wininig a superbowl to wining a superbowl and now going to a teamm who is a very high contender for another one. Good luck Boldin, you deserve another ring. Not to many wide recievers play as tough and fast as you do in the NFL.
