Top five Miami Heat jokes
Ever since the day LeBron James(notes) and Chris Bosh(notes) jumped ship to Miami in the offseason, the Heat became a team that many people love to hate. They rank up there with the Lakers and Yankees as teams that people either really love or really hate. Not surprisingly, most people outside of Miami can't stand the Heat. They are overexposed, appearing on ESPN almost every five minutes. They are egotistical, taking to Twitter to post any number of comments that irk sports fans all over the country. Worst of all, they are very good. The Miami Heat ran through the Eastern Conference playoffs and are now in the NBA Finals. That will make a lot of NBA fans unhappy. For those NBA fans, making some jokes about the Miami Heat can be very therapeutic. Here are five tasteful jokes about the Miami Heat that you can share with your friends and family.
What does a Miami Heat fan do when his team wins the NBA Finals? He turns off the video game system.
Yes, it's true that Miami won in 2006. But remember, these jokes are inspired by the current version of the Miami Heat, who bragged about winning six or seven NBA crowns before playing one game together.
How do you keep a Miami Heat player out of your yard? Put up a basketball net.
This joke came about because of the Miami failure to close out games. Despite all the stars, Miami lost many games on the final possession because of poor shooting. Even now, nobody on their team can shoot better than Dirk Nowitzki(notes).
What is the difference between a Miami Heat player and a baby? A baby eventually stops crying.
Not only did the Heat get cited for a locker room crying story, but they do whine on almost constant basis.
How did Dwayne Wade prove that players should stay in college? He recruited LeBron James and Chris Bosh, with a combined one year of college, to take less money and play second fiddle to him.
This is one of my favorite jokes about the Miami heat and there offseason.
Why do Miami Heat fans wear white to home games? To provide extra handkerchiefs to players.
Another joke about the crying, but also a good one to poke a little fun at Miami fans who show up late for home games.
