I'm actually rooting for the Heat, even though I don't have an NBA team I regularly pull for. I'm definitely not hating. Unfair or not, Wade and Bosh have basically been role players in the postseason. MJ could always count on Pippen. Wade and Bosh can't be counted on to carry much of a load right now. It's Lebron or bust for the Heat at this point.
