Obama on the Miami Heat


The president tries to explain what’s wrong with Miami:

“It takes some time for the team to come together,” Obama said. “There’s no ‘I’ in team. So no matter how good a player is, no matter how good a group of players are, if they haven’t played together before they are not going to be as good as a team that has played together a long time.”

This is an interesting theory, but as I recall it the 2007-2008 Celtics were excellent as soon as Kevin Garnett hit town. Similarly the 1998-1999 Spurs were great right when Tim Duncan arrived.
