Miami Heat superstar Lebron James may have silenced many of his critics by finally winning a championship, but at least one person still isn't going to root for him. Rapper N.O.R.E. revealed that his love of the New York Knicks prevented him from ever cheering on the Heat's victory.
"Nah man, I'm such a hater,'" he said. "Once the Knicks got out, I was rooting for OKC [The Oklahoma City Thunder]. It was hard going to bars out here [in Miami]. Don't get me wrong, congrats to LeBron James, congrats to Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem, but the New York in me wouldn't allow me to cheer for them."
"I'mma be honest, as hardcore Knick, New York dude, Carmelo Anthony is the actual element that made me feel comfortable rooting for my city," N.O.R.E. continued. "He has swag, he's a cool dude, he's a killer scorer...and he's like me, a fellow 'N***a Rican.' When I saw him come to the team, I went back full support of the Knicks. I can't wait until next season."
