Best wishes to Thunder from Miami Heat fan
As a Miami Heat fan, I of course am proud of the fulfillment of the journey we've been on to win an NBA championship. As a sports fan, I'd like to say this to the fans of the Oklahoma City Thunder: With teams like the Dallas Mavericks, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers getting old, and with the possibility that the Chicago Bulls will never be the same with a permanently injured Derrick Rose, it looks like the seasoned Heat and the young Oklahoma City Thunder will be duking it out for some time to come.

I not only look forward to this but if Oklahoma City beats us in the finals next year, I'll be as happy for you as I am for us (well, almost). I've never enjoyed watching basketball as much as I have this year and it wasn't just because of the magical team that the Heat has turned into. It's because I have a new second-favorite team that's young, will be much hungrier and more seasoned and should be the odds-on team to beat next year — the Thunder. You should be extremely proud. Take it from me, enjoy every moment of these guys because fame in sports these days is fleeting.
I wish your team and your passionate fan base all the best and can't wait to do it again next year! See you then!
Bruce Keller, Miami, Fla.
