Heat Shit List: Does Floyd Mayweather Have More Haters Than the Miami Heat?

#FuckLarryMerchant

If you're not down with Floyd Mayweather, then you're not a real Miami Heat fan.

If you don't follow the Heat players on Twitter, then you probably don't know they're all fans of the best boxer alive, Floyd "Money" Mayweather. The Philadelphia 76ers' bum ass starting center, Spencer Hawes aka "Breakfast", pointed this out on Twitter after Mayweather's 4th round knockout of WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on Saturday night.

Maybe the Heat players like Mayweather because they identify with an elite athlete. Maybe they identify with an athlete that's hated as much as they are just for being himself. Whatever the reason may be, the Miami Heat are down with the Money Team, as the tweets listed below indicate.

Since the Heat are down with Mayweather, anybody hating on him will be added to the Heat Shit List. If you're a Heat fan and you see someone on the Internet hating on Floyd, then send a tweet with the hashtag #HeatShitList to @MIA_Heat_Index or leave a comment on this blog with a link to the hating.

The first hater added to the Heat Shit List for hating on Mayweather is Larry Merchant. His subtle racist commentary stains every fight he works for HBO. Writer dream hampton did an excellent job explaining the problem with Merchant on Twitter:

"In sports, white paternalism rarely gets called racism. I'm down to end those days."


What is hampton talking about? Rapper Joell Ortiz tweeted this video of Merchant making fun of Floyd's speech when he was only 19 as an example.
