Here’s why liberals should favor Miami over OKC in NBA finals

 

Whenever there arises a major sporting event in which I don’t have a natural favorite, I have to contrive some reason to back one side over the other.

Often it’s a matter of politics. For example, I tend to favor teams from blue states over those from red states.

But it’s a little more complicated than that in the case of the NBA finals pitting the Miami Heat against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

As leftish sportswriter Dave Zirin ARGUES, liberals should root against the Thunder simply because the franchise owners “stole their team with the naked audacity of Frank and Jesse James from the people of Seattle.”

    Thunder wears blue, I’d think think a good Lib would be for them.
