Miami Herald Congratulates Miami Heat For Winning NBA Championship

Well, sort of. Actually, the premature and incorrect congratulations came from Macy’s, who, unfortunately ran an ad prematurely notifying Miami Herald readers that Heat Championship T-Shirts were now available for sale at Miami Macy’s locations. Hah! That’s pretty funny considering that 1. the Heat  didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship, and 2. the Heat  didn’t win the 2011 NBA championship.

I have to say that I did watch the Finals with a close eye and am very happy that the Dallas Mavericks finally won an NBA championship. I’m happy for Dirk Nowitzki and I am happy for Jason Kidd, two players that I have been following for a very long time. In fact, throughout the playoffs, I was reppin’ a vintage Kidd replica jersey circa 1994. It’s about damn time that the both of the won some hardware.

By the way, if you’re interested in picking up an official Dallas Mavericks 2011 NBA Championship T-Shirt, you can grab one now at the NBA Store.

With that said, in 2012 it will be all about one red Rose and the Chicago Bulls.

Nike Unveils Witness MVP Tee

LeBron James has been a beast this season and this has no doubt been his most impressive season to date. Nike has released the official LeBron James Witness MVP tee to celebrate his MVP season. I have to admit that I’ve been one of those LeBron skeptics since he first left high school and jumped straight to the league. But this season, something about his demeanor, confidence and team play impressed me. And I admit, despite not being a Cavaliers fan, that I am witnessing one of the most electrifying athletes to ever play the game of basketball. This MVP was well deserved .

The Witness tee is available now for $30 and the the Zoom LeBron VI MVP Edition will be available on May 30 for $150.  

Are any of you keeping up with the NBA playoffs? Who are you cheering for?
