Hey Miami, Machiavelli Will Not Be Impressed

“It is not titles that make men illustrious, but men who make titles illustrious.” –Machiavelli

Ok so he may or may not have been talking about NBA titles here, but it still works. Having 2 of the top 3 or 4 players in the league (the world?) Chris Bosh, and Pat Riley running things, is kinda like being handed at least one NBA title. So the tile(s) that these uncompetitive douchers win are not really going to enhance their image or legacies at all. Nobody will ever think of any of them as the greatest ever. It will be remembered more as “Hey remember when those guys all played together? That was cool.” They will not be made illustrious by winning titles together in Miami.

Wade’s performance in the 06 finals made him illustrious. What Kobe has done post-Shaq has made him illustrious. What LeBron should have finished in Cleveland would have made him illustrious. Nobody is going to be impressed by this Miami team unless they go undefeated. I am hoping we will be disappointed.
