Eddie House: Middle Fingers to All the Miami Heat Haters
It’s no secret at this point that the Miami Heat have already become the center of attention in the basketball world. There are plenty of people who already hate the Heat, and others who are “jealous as s***” of them. One guy doesn’t give a rat’s behind what you think of the boys from South Beach, and he’s letting everyone know exactly how he feels about it. Here’s the message Eddie House has for all the “haters” who want to see the Heat fall flat on their face.
I think, you know what, honestly, I don’t give a (expletive) about nobody else on the outside,” House said. “It doesn’t matter about anybody out there. I don’t care what their expectations are. We have our expectations and our goals. We are going to achieve them. That’s the bottom line.”
“So, at the end of the day, middle fingers to all the haters,” House said.
That’s about as straightforward as it can get, but I’m sure that’s how Eddie actually feels. Coming over from the Celtics, the three point specialist is certainly no stranger to being on a hated squad and coming off the bench in support of a Big Three. It may sound crazy, but the fact that House has dealt with identical circumstances in the past could be enough to make him a leader on a team that has an insane amount of star power and talent.
Whether the Heat live up to the enormous expectations they’ve set for themselves or not, I think it’s clear that the players couldn’t care less what Charles Barkley or anyone else has already predetermined about them.
