Miami Heat: Let Three-Dom Ring

For some reason, in the sports world, pride is a virtue. 

Needing help is a weakness.

Taking the team on your shoulders is heroism.

Working together as a team is overlooked.

We talk about playing "team basketball," yet we want our stars to win by themselves. 

We talk about sacrificing for your teammates, yet we want you to win in spite of your teammates

We want you to be role-models to our children, yet we want you to hate your competition.

We want you to love the game you play, yet we don't want you to even like another player who threatens your status as the best.

Well I, for one, applaud LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh for checking their egos at the door.

Each of them was The Man on his team last year. 

This year, none of them is.

Each of them has chosen to end their pursuit of a championship as an individual and to begin their pursuit of a championship as a team.

These are values that translate to greatness in the real world.

Stop trying to do everything by yourself because you're proud.
