This year's NBA Finals had everything the league could have possibly wanted, and more. On one side, the good guys, the Oklahoma City Thunder; a young, up-and-coming team that just happened to employ an electrifying point guard and a humble scoring champion. And on the other side, the villains, the Miami Heat; a star-studded group with an air of cockiness that irritates many fans. While most people rooted for the Thunder, they did so only because of their disdain for the dominant Heat. Unfortunately for Oklahoma City, all the anti-Heat enthusiasm wasn't enough to keep them from taking the championship. Having teams to hate on are what drives interest in sports, and these ones are the biggest culprits.
