Remember when it looked like the San Antonio Spurs had their fifth title in the bag late in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals? Well, many of the Miami Heat “fans” hit the exits early and missed Ray Allen‘s incredible game-tying three-point shot and then the thrilling overtime period that saw Miami force Game 7. That aggravated Heat superstar forward Chris Bosh and he has a message for those fans who gave up on their team: don’t come back for the finale.
That’s right, Bosh told his team’s own fans to watch Game 7 from home and who can blame him? Miami does have a lot of real fans, but a vast majority of the Heat fan base is a bunch of bandwagon fans, which is typical for a team with that many superstars.
Look, Miami is the most polarizing team in sports; you either love the Heat or you hate every player on the team, and especially LeBron James. But Bosh has a point and his opinion matters since he was the one who won Game 6 for the Heat with his incredible offensive rebounding, clutch blocked shots and series-defining assist to Allen on that shot in the closing seconds.
Will telling the fans they aren’t welcome backfire on Bosh and the Heat in Game 7? Comment below and let us know!
