When one asks another about great, historic NBA franchises two teams come to mind…The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers and rightfully so. For parts of the last 60 years these two franchises have accumulated the most championships in the history of the NBA as well as the most Hall of Fame players.
Ask another which franchises have been the most stable and they’ll definitely say the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. The Spurs lineage dates back to the days of the free flowing ABA and the Heat, an expansion team in the Florida market during the late 80’s.
San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich has been highly critical of the 45th United States President for years but his voice has grown stronger within the last few weeks as social injustices grew in frequency and brashness.
Of the two NBA franchises birthed in Florida in the late 80’s, the Miami Heat has become a model of excellence on and off of the court.
Many times in the past the Heat have been in the forefront when it came to social injustices and community relations but in this fight, the biggest yet, the Miami Heat have proudly planted their flag and made their stance.
