The Miami Heat’s 27-game-win streak came to end last week at the hands of the Chicago Bulls. The incredible run was the second longest in NBA history, just five games shy of the record the 72 Lakers held with 33 games. Even President Obama, an avid basketball fan, had to weigh in on the Heat’s loss to the Bulls while in Miami to discuss his economic plan.
THE PRESIDENT: Now, before we get started, I’ve got to get into a sticky subject right off the bat. I know you guys aren’t happy with my Chicago Bulls.
AUDIENCE: Booo –
THE PRESIDENT: But I just want you to know the Heat are going to be just fine. They’re going to be okay. (Applause.) They are playing basketball the right way. The Hurricanes — they had a great season — no, no, they deserve a big round of applause. (Applause.) Tonight you’ve got Florida and Florida Gulf Coast going at it. (Applause.) One of them will go to the Elite Eight. So, let’s face it, Florida is the center of basketball right now. (Applause.)

Danny Ainge recently said that LeBron needs to stop doing so much complaining, and that apparently did not sit well with Pat Riley, to say the least.
Normally I like my posts to have some kind of substance to them be it my whit and wisdom (go ahead and laugh) or a video clip of something cool. This post has neither.
What it does have is a hilarious LeBron James meme.

Pat Riley holds a warm place in my heart. As a coach with the Lakers during the “Showtime” era. The toughness he brought to the Knicks in the 90′s and the transformation he created in South Beach, Riles responded to criticism Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge tossed out at Lebron James on Friday night.
“Danny Ainge needs to shut the f**k up and...
Loyal Bulls fan, President Obama, joked with Heat fans during a press conference on creating jobs in Miami. “I know you guys aren’t too happy about my Chicago Bulls,” the President said about the Bulls ending Miami’s 27-game win streak which prompted boos from the crowd. “But I just want you to know, the Heat are going to be just fine. They’re going to be OK,” Obama...
In a recent interview on WEEI radio, Celtics GM, Danny Ainge, called LeBron James “almost embarrassing” for complaining about foul calls after Chicago snapped Miami’s 27-game winning streak. LeBron James responded at Friday’s shootaround in New Orleans, saying “Nothing that comes out of Boston surprises me,” but Miami wasn’t done firing back. Heat president Pat Riley...
The Miami Heat's Pat Riley literally told Boston's Danny Ainge to 'Shut the f@#$ up' in a written statement to the press. Epic.
In the waning moments of game one Derrick Rose sets up a pick and roll, one of his go-to plays. Noah lays down a pick on Jrue Holiday, leaving Spencer Hawes to switch onto one of the most dangerous men in the league, especially while driving. Hawes immediately starts back pedaling and everyone has seen this type of play hundreds of times from Rose. He hesitates left and freezes...
