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.

Are Houston Rockets Still a Top-4 Western Conference Team?

Jul 29 2014 6:24pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Who are the Houston Rockets? As they continue to work through an NBA offseason that was once dressed in promise and optimism and grand ambitions but is now steeped in disappointment, it's a fair question. And it's a malleable inquiry at that, not one stringently limited to the scope of how it's phrased. With one question, we're asking a vast number of different things. Are the Rockets who they think they are? Is there a crater-sized ch ...

Donatas Motiejunas Questions Chandler Parsons’ Contract

Jul 27 2014 2:30pm CDT | Source: dime mag

The Houston Rockets would have happily matched the Dallas Mavericks’ offer sheet to Chandler Parsons had Chris Bosh done as expected and inked a contract to create the league’s newest Big Three with James Harden and Dwight Howard. Just don’t tell that to Houston big man Donatas Motiejunas. While discussing the state of his team […] The post Donatas Motiejunas Questions Chandler Parsons’ Contract appeared first on Dime Magazine (dimemag.com) : Daily NBA News, NBA Trades, NBA Rumors, B ...

Jeremy Lin Finally in Perfect Locale to Succeed with Los Angeles Lakers

Jul 25 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jeremy Lin has finally found a home. Not in a first-time sense but in the sense of a non-chaotic situation. No expectations. No hype. No Linsanity. As the first American of Taiwanese or Chinese descent in the league, the now 25-year-old, four-year veteran entered the league to grand expectations. The skill has always been bubbling on the surface, sometimes boiling over, but all of that was lost in the shuffle of a fan and media hail storm of which there s ...

Do Recent Additions Give Dallas Mavericks the NBA's Best Offense?

Jul 24 2014 6:36pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Dallas Mavericks haven't experienced much playoff success since taking down the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals.  In fact, they've advanced to the postseason in two of the three campaigns that have come to pass since they held up the Larry O'Brien Trophy but haven't even won a single playoff series during those appearances. In 2013-14, they came quite close, taking the San Antonio Spurs to seven games before suc ...

Houston Rockets-Dallas Mavericks Rivalry Heating Up over Chandler Parsons Drama

Jul 24 2014 4:12pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Things are going to get heated when the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets square off with one another during the 2014-15 season.  Expect Dwight Howard to do everything possible to swat away some of Chandler Parsons' shot attempts, while the small forward who switched teams will do whatever's in his power to shut down James Harden and torch his old squad.  The trio has been at each other's throats—verbally, not literal ...

Will Extensions Become More Prevalent with Restricted Free-Agency Issues?

Jul 23 2014 7:06pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There are a few lessons the 2014 free-agency period has taught us. For example, shooting, and not necessarily scoring, is what the market rewards now. The luxury tax, as we saw for the Indiana Pacers, is still a real concern.  But perhaps the biggest takeaway from this offseason is just how dangerous restricted free agency has become. Teams are getting more comfortable with the collective bargaining agreement and simultaneously more aggressive in saddling their rivals wi ...

Let’s Play ‘Find Everyone On The Clippers A New Team To Play For’

Jul 23 2014 3:10pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

It’s possible — though, for the record, highly, highly improbable — that the L.A. Clippers are entering a “death spiral,” thanks to Donald Sterling’s increasing affinity for suing everybody he’s ever known. Doc Rivers allegedly told the team’s interim CEO that he would leave the team if Sterling was still around by next season, and if he does that, the players might follow suit. Again: This will almost definitely not happen. Sterling will probably lose ...

Source: Cavs to sign Wiggins to rookie deal

Jul 22 2014 11:12am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

CLEVELAND — Andrew Wiggins will sign his rookie contract with the Cavaliers. It’s still not clear if he’ll play for them. A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cavs will sign the No. 1 overall pick to his deal, an agreement that would prevent any potential trade involving the small forward from being completed for 30 days. The Minnesota Timberwolves and Cavaliers have been discussing a potential deal that would send All-Star forward Kevin Love to the Cavaliers for Wiggin ...

LeBron James' Future Better Tied to Andrew Wiggins Than Kevin Love

Jul 21 2014 7:15pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

LeBron James returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers preaching responsibility, waxing patience and selling uncertain visions that made, and continue to make, more sense when bound to rookie Andrew Wiggins instead of Kevin Love. This is not to suggest Love is an unworthy sidekick. Pairing a top-10 superstar with the world's greatest player has its advantages—extravagant frills the Miami Heat exploited ...
