Heat Fans -- Dropping VOODOO Curse on the Mavs

6/9/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miami Heat fans are seeking some old-fashioned voodoo vengeance on the Dallas Mavericks, TMZ has learned -- buying up voodoo dolls by the HUNDREDS ... to curse the Mavs during the NBA finals.

They're selling out like hot cakes ... but the owner of El Viejo Lazaro Botanica -- which hocks all sorts of bizarre religious supplies, including voodoo stuff -- tells TMZ, he has no idea which Mavs are being targeted by the hexes.

If they're not buying voodoo dolls, we're told Miami fans are turning to herbal remedies -- buying what are called "Paraiso" herbs to use in a bath.

According to the owner, you put the herbs in a bath, get in, then visualize what you want to happen -- in this case, a Miami Heat victory.

Lucky for the Heat, they probably won't need the extra help.

Are you serious?! Apparently Miami Fans think their players can't win it the old fashion way by just playing! Hey Heat Fans, do I hear "lack for your boys" ?! Give me a break, like that crap really works. Guess none of them are true Christians.
STICK IT TO THEM MAVERICKS! GO MAVS! GO MAVS! GO MAVS! GO MAVS! GO MAVS!

HEY !!! My store The Paper Boutique of South Miami is the originator of the voodoo doll idea !!! Our Visual merchandising Manager, Beba Padron came up with the idea ! That SANTERO guy copied us. We made them, posted it on Facebook on our page and sold out within a couple of hours. WE HAD over 100 calls about them, (though ours were not treated with voodoo but merely a prank, a child's toy)...Lazaro's Botanica----Hmmm...Copycat Santeria...LOL !!! I curse you !!! Double LOL !!!!

IT'S TIME FOR KING JAMES TO STEP UP AS WELL THE REST OF THE HEAT. IF MIAMI DOES NOT PULL THIS OUT IT'S ON THE COACH FOR FAILING TO KEEP HIS MOTIVATED TO CLOSE OUT GAMES AT THE END. IF A PLAYER IS STRUGGLING LIKE LEBRON IS THE COACH NEEDS TO FIND SOMEWAY TO MOTIVATE THAT PLAYER AND HELP HIM REACH THAT NEXT LEVEL ESPECIALLY IN A GAME OF THIS LEVEL AND OF A PLAYER OF LEBRONS CALIBER. LEBRON WILL BEAR THE BURDEN OF THE THEAMS LOSS IF THE HEAT DO NOT PULL THIS OUT BUT LIKE EVERYONE SAYS BASKETBALL IS A TEAM SPORT ONE MAN CANNNOT WIN IT BY HIMSELF AND ONE MAN CANNOT LOSE IT BY HIMSELF.
