Lakers to host Heat on Christmas Day: Start making your signs

It was officially announced yesterday that the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers will host the nouveau riche powerhouse Miami Heat on Christmas Day. I was secretly hoping that David Stern and the NBA brass would have the...um...marbles (thank you Isuro Tanaka) to schedule LeBron James' first trip back to Cleveland on Christmas, but I guess this is the next best thing.

That being said, Laker fans need to start preparing. The Miami Heat have essentially become the most hated franchise in America. In LA, they've probably ascended to the number two position, considering it would be difficult to supplant the dreaded Boston Celtics.

Nonetheless, it's time to get fierce. I know the Staples Center crowd isn't much for signs and banners. They are generally a more refined group (at least until you get to the top tier, where you find the real Laker fans). But this is a genuine opportunity to get creative with some hilariously biting signs. Staples Center clearly supports the idea, so here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • MIAMI HEAT - SUPERSTARS: 3, CHAMPIONSHIPS: 0
  • (since the game is airing on ABC): Always Betraying Cleveland
  • LeBron and my Grandma: Both abandoned their family to live on the beach
  • Wade = BATMAN, LEBRON = ROBIN, BOSH = CATWOMAN
  • If my mom slept with this guy, I'd leave too!


Ok, so maybe that last one was a little harsh, but you get the idea. Leave your sign suggestions in the comments field below and I'll pick out the best ones and run them later this week. Now, I know you are a passionate fan base, but keep in mind that profane or lewd comments will be deleted immediately. Not that you guys would do such a thing...

    Miami won a Championship a few years ago so the 1st one is lame.

    There's nothin' like Beatin' the Heat in LA

    you're crazy sayin' real fans are only in the top tier... dude I'm a season tic holder in premier and we go balls out crazy every game... get the whole section on their feet... get ppl chantin' ... and end up on the jumbo once a game. I know what you're sayin' about true fans but most of "those" fair weather kinda fans are the people that are comin' as clients to say they were at the game... they sit all over the place in premier... I hear ya.
