Heat players partied at Liv with the Mavericks?

The Miami Heat bandwagon came to a crashing halt on Sunday night when the Dallas Mavericks closed out the series and won the NBA title. It's tough enough to watch a team celebrate on your own floor. It's even harder when some of your celebrity fans are photographed partying with the team that just beat you.

It's going to get tougher when people find out that some of your own teammates were there, too.


These are some different kinda dudes. I can't even be shocked by anything this team does anymore. They have a party to start the year then throw pity parties when they realize people suddenly want them to fail. At times they look inspired on the floor only to follow it up with periods of offensive incoherence. LeBron proclaims not to worry about what others say then takes a targeted shot at all of the people hating on him.

So maybe it shouldn't be surprising that some of the Heat players showed up at the club after the game. They're the anti-thesis of what everyone thinks they should be. I haven't figured out if it's willful defiance of their critics, a general arrogance or a naive cluelessness. And that's what now has me hooked on this team. Not as a fan or a hater, but just a curious observer. This promises to be one of the most fascinating team dynamics in sports history. The kind of thing that will make a fascinating feature if ESPN decides to do a 40-for-40.

  1. Mr. Grant -
    Heat players/fans partying with the Mavs??? That's the spirit!!! To me, that is good sportmanship. Game is over. Mavs won. End of story.

    In life, you win some, you lose some. Why waste any minute of your life sulking, when you can lift your head high, promise to do better next year and move on???

    I am sure, the Heat players/fans are not only there to celebrate with the Mavs, but also to celebrate the end of a very good season -- which by the way is fantastic regardless of the Heat's loss. First year together and they got to the finals??? That's waaaaay more than other teams have done. Now, that is something to celebrate as well.

  3. Why not party. Its not like they have to hate every other NBA player. What happens on the court stays on the court. People will find anything to hate on. Lebron was keeping it real. People will still have their same problems, the heat losing doesn't change anybodys life. He was basically saying worry about your life and take care of your problems before you try to talk about his

  4. Wow, lol!
    Whatever Heat do now, everything is wrong!
    Goal of this story is to show Heat players as a traitors.

    First of all, I would like that it's true.
    Mavs won, they played better - congratulate them and party with them if u want.

    Second...well, I hope people will start talking shit about Heat. Each move they do now (and it was also like that before) is wrong.

    They were supposed to hate Mavs and say "U won't party in our city!" ?
    They were supposed to envy them?

    Haters should just fck off.

  8. I think its funny how the league has changed. You think Jordan or Kobe would be partying with the opposing team.... nope. And whats different from them and LeBrick, oh yeah championships. Your supposed to use losses to build your fire, your passion to succeed, not to just write off the season as good enough because we made it to the finals. Yes thats an amazing feat in a first year, but with 3 superstars not so much. Instead wallow, feed off of the pain and humiliation and dammit get back in the gym and start working your ass off. The NBA is changing and not for the better.
