The Heat are my daddy
As a Celtics fan, I can fully admit that Jimmy Butler is now my father after the ECF. That’s ok. I accept that. What I refuse to accept is Rajon Rondo winning a title in Laker gold as a teammate of LeBron. So as far as I’m concerned, the Miami Heat won their 4th ring this season. Congrats to Spo and the entire organization! Another one for the rafters in Miami!
Chevy and Rhoby keep it light, but absolutely bring the 🔥 takes! Must listen for any NBA fan
