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

Jun 19 2013, 6:56pm CDT | by

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.

#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 a team that occasionally started Jamari ...

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. Where he goes, other talent follows. LeBron ...

Which Reclamation Project Is Most Critical to Miami Heat's Success?

Oct 7 2014 2:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the past four years, Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra’s most important job was in compelling LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to play to their respective superstar potentials. In other words, getting them to be who they are. This time around, the challenge couldn’t be more different: helping players like Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger be better than they’ve been—at least recently. So which stands to be Spoelstra’s most ...

Just enjoy Lebron James' Cavaliers

Let's talk about the expectations, challenges and -- above all -- potential fun of the new-look Cavaliers. LeBron James is always the biggest story in basketball, but LeBron James back in Cleveland? It might be the biggest story in sports. James pulled a stunner by returning to the Cavaliers as a free agent and then the team traded No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love. Cleveland suddenly has a super team with a t ...
