Sports Illustrated Leaves Miami Heat Off NBA Preview Covers

The Miami Heat, led by some dude named LeBron James, have won the past two NBA championships. Yet Sports Illustrated — when designing its NBA season preview covers — decided that didn’t mean too much, and excluded the team.

Instead of acknowledging the back-to-back champs, readers will see SI covers featuring either the Brooklyn Nets (which we will of course burn), Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose or Steph Curry.

We can see the reasons for a cover featuring Howard and Rose. Curry is a bit of stretch, but the Nets getting a cover and not the Heat? That’s just stupid.

The Heat are the best team with the best player. They deserved a cover from SI. But hey, what do we know? Maybe an old and overrated squad that plays second fiddle to a team that gave a max contract to a player with one knee (we still love you Stat!) was a better choice.

TVNewser: Aaron Sorkin can do no wrong. So his new HBO drama The Newsroom has to be a sure-fire hit, right? Well, not according to several media critics. ABC’s Jake Tapper for The New Republic calls the show “sadly disappointing.”  Don’t polish those Emmys just yet.

TVSpy: Did you hear the one about the weatherman who lost it on the air? Our friends at TVSpy have the video of the Cleveland meteorologist, less than thrilled with Lebron James, winning his first NBA title with the Heat.
