John Kasich, Governor of the state of Ohio, took the unusual step of honoring a team with no geographical ties to his jurisdiction. On Monday, one day after the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals, Kasich's office released a press release noting that the governor had issued a resolution that declared that the Mavericks, their friends, family and fans are now officially "Honorary Ohioans."

Meh......Let the Ohioans have their fun. They don't have anything outside Miami's failures to cheer about anyway.

So does this mean the Mavs have to give their title back?

Didn't think Ohioans were allowed to have championships.

He brought this upon himself with the self proclaimed King title, "The Decision," the championship guarantees with the smoke machines, etc...

On one hand he constantly acts like he's bigger than the game of basketball. But when he loses and people hate on him - he's just a basketball player, it's just a game, and we're the ones that are out of touch? You can't play both sides of the coin.

One of the funniest things I've read all day. And I've been laughing at Lebron jokes on the internet since I got to work this morning.

the Heat fans are real mad lol. now theyre taking shots at Ohioans like this has anything to do with them.

reality check people...it has nothing to do with the Miami Heat or their fan base (even though the Heat fan base has become the most egotistical of them all and think everything has to do with them). it has to do with Lebron and whatever team Lebron would have chosen to play for, Cleveland fans will wish failure upon them. with Lebron comes "hate", and it should be expected by now.

It is a game...entertainment...Who benefits from this, are those unemployed Ohioans being hired because of this. Are those uninsured families able to afford medical expenses, what about the homeless? Why do we go to great lengths to magnify and praise entertainment/sports, is this what the Government really wants, distraction from the real problems at hand (so many theories :p)...I mean I would have been excited if we won but either way nothing changes for us regulars.

Seems like a bit much coming from the Governor. It'll get him a few votes next election (if he isn't already on his last term?)

they tried so hard to make the games on time and understandd what they were watching.

The sad part is this is probably the last time you will ever hear Ohio mentioned in the same breath as the NBA finals....

Kasich has absolutely no positive accomplishments on his record as governer, he has to try to find some way to give himself some appeal.

What do you expect? I guess Heat fans are mad because they lost when they were favored to win and now Ohio is rubbing it in there face. Maybe Cleveland can have a parade for the Mavs too. I'm sure Gilbert would finance it.

LeBron James helped Cleveland's economy when he was in town. That city is one of the most "depressed" cities in the US, and he helped give SOME life in that place. More people came to games, and more people visited Cleveland. Him leaving took all that away. Besides sports, there's not much draw to the Cleveland area. LeBron James' departure from Cleveland is kinda the story of that whole area. People are packing up and moving to elsewhere cause there's little chances for money.

As governor, I'm sure he wouldn't want to see this happen. Other things can be done about their delimma, but James low blowed Cleveland I that way.

So would I be mad if I was the governor of Ohio? Most likey.

The economy sucks everywhere. Not just in Cleveland. And Cleveland can clearly survive and has without LeBrick. Yeah Cleveland may not be one of the most sought out locations but it gets such a bad rap. Most people who rag on it have never been there.

I understand the economy is bad.

LeBron James was viewed as an answer to their problems. I'm not saying he was the answer, but the city regarded him as if he was. He was a Ohio native and he was a likable person because of that. Then he decided to leave, and everyone used both things against him.

Hahahaha. I don't know what's funnier, how mad Cleveland is still, or how Heat fans are getting so ****hurt. I would love to know what it feels like to have that roster and everybody hating on my team.
