Chris Bosh Tells Fans Who Left Early in Game 6 to Not Come Back

Miami Heat center-forward Chris Bosh tells fans who left early in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs to not come back in Game 7.

Miami Heat center-forward Chris Bosh tells fans who left early in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs to not come back in Game 7. 

According to Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver, a significant portion of the home crowd left American Airlines Arena early, missing the Heat's dramatic 103-100 comeback. Bosh let these fans know what he felt about it during a media session on Wednesday. 

"For all those guys [fans] who left, make sure they don't come to Game 7. We only want the guys who want to stay. You never give up. People gave up on us. They can stay where they are and watch the game at home."

Some of the fans who left attempted to go back in, but were denied access by the arena's security personnel who enforced the no re-entry policy. Apparently, Bosh knows all about it.

"You can't get let back in after you leave. I know that. Hell, I've been to games. You can't leave a game and then come back. It doesn't make any sense. You left. It's not punishment, that's protocol."

Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press points out the overwhelming majority of fans stayed in the building for the full game. He also says the Heat have been playing to sellout crowds in the past three seasons that Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have been teammates. Reynolds also brings up the fact that many Spurs fans left the AT&T Center in San Antonio long before Game 4 ended, a 109-93 Miami blowout win.

The Heat, who were on the verge of elimination in Game 6, rallied behind three-pointers from James and Ray Allen to win 103-100 in overtime.

During the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, Pacers radio broadcaster Mark Boyle chimed in on what he thought of Heat fans leaving early after their team lost at home in Game 2. 

"We are literally sitting in the crowd here. These losers are leaving. They are flocking to the exits with their team down by three. This city does not only deserve this team, they don't deserve any team."

Game 7 will be played in Miami on Thursday at 9pm EDT.

Tested by the Past, Erik Spoelstra Takes on Challenge of LeBron-Less Future

Oct 29 2014 8:28am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

MIAMI — Erik Spoelstra always appreciated the unique nature of the opportunity, not just for someone with his unconventional beginnings, but for anyone. That was apparent from the official opening of the Big Three era, and even several weeks later, just before Christmas 2010, when he was chatting casually on the court of the U.S. Airways Center, after a comfortable victory against the Phoenix Suns.  By ...

The Good, The Bad, And The Unsettling About Kevin Love’s Role On The New-Look Cavs

Oct 23 2014 11:42am CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Basketball isn’t like sex — you can’t just add more people who are good at it to the equation and get a better result, at least not at first. Over time and with practice, guys with different skill sets, egos and abilities adjust to playing with one another, and what was once a tangle of bodies and grunting and whispers of doubt becomes a championship contender, and sometimes winner. See the Miami Heat from 2011 to 2013. The Cleveland Cavaliers of 2014 are the newest exam ...

The Houston Rockets visit the Miami Heat Tuesday for the first time in the post-LeBron James era, with the Rockets running through the preseason to a 4-1 record so far notwithstanding their unfruitful offseason pursuit of Chris Bosh. Meanwhile, the Heat managed to pick themselves up off the canvas after dropping their first four exhibition games, beating the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs on consecutive days. Somewhat cruelly, three of Miami's six preseason ga ...

#SLAMTop50: Blake Griffin, no. 8

Oct 13 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: slamonline

Remember Blake Griffin’s first game in the NBA? He had lost the previous season to a knee injury, and all he did in his debut was jam home every ball in sight, flash some nice post moves and look fully healthy. He was an obvious star. Griffin was equally exhilarating for the remainder of that season, and finished with averages of 22.5, 12 and 4 while shooting 51 percent. Unfortunately, the effort went to waste on  ...

LeBron James Would Make An Awesome General Manager And Owner

Oct 11 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

LeBron James has already disappointed in terms of Champion rings. There’s still plenty of time in his playing career, but probably not enough to surpass Michael Jordan, which was the unfair prophesy. As a player, LeBron will be hard-pressed to pass MJ’s Championship total. But what if James gets more rings after his career is done? What if James gets them as an owner and/or general manager? He’s an incredible manipulator of talent as a player. ...
