Little harsh by Mark Boyle if you ask me. Sometimes Heat fans stay until the end of the game, you know to make sure they finish that text to their friends during the final second, bragging about how awesome the Heat game they aren’t watching is.
No group of people I hate more than these people.
Pacers couldn’t even sell out a game during the season, losers!
Worst fans in sports
The heat and their fans are as fake as pres’ hockey knowledge
Worst fans. Players that have never founded anyone in their lives. And even their PA person sucks. Deee-waynneeeeee wadeeeeee, lebronnnnnnnnn. Jamesszssassssssssssss
2oooooo minutes. Dos minutos
Brutal, just brutal
I sigh at these rich fucks who go to the games… that being said, hah suck it, #i live where you vacation. And good job, our PA is awesome. Tyson Chandler has now been extinguished from the game.
Some should call immigration on them.
I’m from Miami and I will never, ever consider these fairweather fans a part of my city.
@561boys, No one would want to vacation in that shit stain city.
Have fun being snowed in 9 months of the year Chicago. And cheering for the biggest group of misfits in the NBA. Be more bitter
Miami, Florida is Gary, Indiana with an expensive beach.
Fuck you and your shithole city.
snowed in 9 months? johnny you’re a fucking moron
Pacers announced attendance for home games was 84% of their arena’s capacity this season, 3rd-worst of any playoff team. Miami’s was 102%. This announcer is the real loser here, pathetic Pacers fans can’t even fill the arena for such a good team. When the Heat take this series in 6, I wonder what the “loser” Pacers fans will do.
Not 1, Not 2, Not 3….LeBron wasn’t counting rings – he was counting total teeth in the Pacers’ arena!
Only people that think Miami is great are the people that live in Miami.
“Enjoy being snowed in 9 months”…. You realize snow is fun right? Plus I will take Snow bunnies over beach whores
@561boys actually, you live in a shallow, phony, shit hole of a city filled with fake tits, rental ferraris and filthy cubans. Probably my least favorite major city in the entire country. It’s a city comprised of ed hardy wearing douche bags, plastic whores, and the aforementioned filthy cubans. The people who vacation there the the idiots who don’t realize that there are beautiful beaches in other parts of the country where you’re not required to bump shoulders with the bottom feeding scum of American society.
@crimzin I like the fury! Miami is trash.
@msale18, I think you missed the point dickhead. I’d rather have 300 real fans show up than an arena full of fairweather assholes who are only there to be seen because it’s “cool”. Heat fans only give a shit about the Heat because they’re trendy right now. The minute they become average again 95% of these pricks will never go to a game again…the other 5% will likely have been deported by then.
Oh, and the 84% of the Pacer fans(or Celts, Bulls, Spurs, Grizzlies)in the arena would surely stick around for the last 30 seconds if they’re only down 3. So take your 102% capacity and shove it up your ass. Yeah they might show up, but that doesn’t mean they’ll 1)be there at the end(gotta hit the club, right?), or 2)actually give a shit about what’s going on on the floor during the game when they are there.
Miami fans are cunts
heat fans are bigger pussies than leafs fans
@561boys You’re from Palm Beach, which means that at least half of the people that live in your city are over the age of 65 and are probably Jewish. Sounds like a great place to live.
@crimzin fucking spot on.
“What’s a Miami heat. Oh, lebron James. He’s rich”. Would almost bet that’s a direct quote from one of tw bimbos at these games.
the best part of miami is actually little havana, its the only real part. and cuban people are actually pretty cool for the most part. that said, the rest of the city is either a bunch of trashy broke hoodlums and white people with zero class…ed hardy assholes and plastic whores who cant think and just react to the flashy neon signs.
@561boys you realize that the guy said “Amare Stoudemire has been extinguished from the game” right? Get it? Because he punched a fire extinguisher. Yeah… Not that funny. Miami sucks.
561boys definitely gulps the goo
@561boys, I lived in Florida for 7 years, 3 months of which were in Miami and I got out of that shithole the first chance I got. That is a horrible place and no one I’ve ever known said they wanted to vacation in Miami.
1) 95% will never go again? So if the Heat become average, their average attendance will be ~1,000 people per game? Doubtful – even the Kings average 13K and they have the worst attendance in the league. So you’re wrong about that.
2) The Heat had the 3rd best attendance in the league. However you like to judge people (clearly by race as indicated by your deportation comment), the Pacers had the 25th best attendance in the league. Simple math tells me that any NBA team would rather more rather than less. The other top 5 attendances: CHI, DAL, POR, GS, LAC — their lack of trendiness has really worked out well for them.
3) An arena full of 300 die hard fans, surely would look worse than an arena FILLED with anything – even full of ignorant assholes like you
4) You (and this unprofessional dumbass announcer) may want to re-watch the last minute of this game. Sure some people headed towards the exit as happens in any arena when the game is out of reach with 5 seconds remaining. More fans stayed till the end, than the entire Pacers’ arena holds.
5) Pacers didn’t sell out a single game. I guess this announcer couldn’t find enough losers to fill the empty seats.
Whoever cares enough to quantify/qualify how die-hard the Heat’s fans are — must suck for them knowing the Heat are the best team in the NBA, will beat the Pacers in 6 and will beat the Spurs in 5. I guess if you can’t hate on the team, hate on their fans who pay to watch them.
Miami- if you wish you lived in California but can only afford a trailer, we’re the perfect city for you!
msale, nice novel ya douchebag. Nobody’s gonna read that shit.
msale..go die in a fire
Yes, “Palm” and “Beach” county. Ill take that over your puerto ricans and subway systems
@jfarts I bet you’re a “fairweather asshole” – and you probably read it
@ cuntymosta87 not going to die by Heat– i’m not a Pacer
No1 wants to vacation in Miami lol? 5th most visited city in America
if you don’t enjoy visiting Miami you are either a) poor, or b) so ugly your appearance makes people cringe. that being said it would be hard to live there due to reasons already covered above
@msale if you really think the people who show up for Heat games are attentive, knowledgeable, and passionate about their team I have a bridge to sell you, asshole
@madameswish who cares who has the smartest fans? I guarantee you Heat fans are more knowledgable and attentive than the farmers in Indiana who can’t even fill the arena. Also, not in the market to buy a bridge but thank you for offering.
@msale, the fact that you actually just “guaranteed” Heat fans are more knowledgeable than Pacer fans tells me everything I need to know about you. Might be the dumbest thing anyone’s ever said on Barstool…which is saying something because this is a website that Imtough comments on every 36 seconds.
Heat fans aren’t more knowledgeable than any one single fan base in the NBA, I guarantee it. Showing up doesn’t mean you know a damn thing about what’s actually going on in front of you. I’m assuming there’s no actual way of quantifying fan intelligence, but if there were I’m 100% certain Miami sports fans (in any sport) would finish dead last in terms of collective sports IQ. That whole city sucks for sports and it always has.
PS Get ready for the Dolphins this year. Like I always say. Last decade was Brady VS Manning. This decade to follow will be Tannehill vs Luck.
Heat front office had to print and hand out fliers about how to be a fan after they signed the Medium 3. It told fans to show up before the game and stay until it was finished and how they should cheer. Everything is fake about the crowd and that piece of shit Lebron. Fuck him.
@msale Indiana is the birthplace of Larry Legend, a place that cares about basketball more than any state except maybe Kentucky and New York. Miami is a place where half the people don’t even speak english and the fans show up midway through the 1st quarter and leave before the game is over to hit the club. That, along with your pathetic attempt to insult my username, makes me think I shouldn’t be arguing with a full-blown retard online. Peace
Lol, Paulina Gretzky just uploaded a picture on a boat at Peanut Island in PB. Suck it
@sirswish, thank you. The fact that this dumbass actually tried to say fucking Miami Heat fans are more knowledgeable than the HOOSIER STATE might legitimately be the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard in my life. I’m not even from Indiana but I sure as hell know that people from Indiana know a little something about basketball. msale, you’re a retard. Seriously.
Miami sports fans motto: come late, leave early
Love what I started here. I lived in Florida for a few years. Got the hell out of there the first chance I could. . Total shithole of a state. Horrible drivers. Worse people. Fake as hell
Horrible unknowledgable sports fans. Only thing I like about Florida is hearing the f’d up news stories that come out of that state every day
did anyone see the espn report about how no one hates the heat anymore? FUCK that
People watch espn? Awful news reporting. It isn’t even about sports anymore w them. It’s Hollywood gossip
I’m originally from New York now living in Florida and these people down here are the absolute worst professional sports fans. I guarantee once LeBron leaves or retires the people in Miami will cease to give half a shit about basketball or just root for whoever is in first place at the time.
If you don’t have a Rony Seikaly jersey from ’92, you’re a fake ass Heat fan. Period.
american airlines arena has a 20 foot tall jordan jersey on the top of the wall on one sideline. thats all you need to know. a jordan bulls jersey….in the heats arena…was there for a game in 2011, could not believe it.
In the loyal Hoosier state of Indiana, the birthplace of Larry Legend that cares more about basketball than any group of humans possibly could (according to you remedial mongoloids), there was a “LETS GO HEAT” chant echoing through the arena as the “loser” Pacers fans exited the arena with 6 minutes left in the game. Oh yea, for anyone that is knowledgeable and attentive about basketball, the Heat put on a clinic and murked Pacer Nation/Larry Legendville tonight. The people that you claim don’t speak English (if that’s what matters) probably speak as much proper English as the idiots in Indiana.
Msale, who was your favorite team 5 years ago?
Just stop everybody… The heat are now the most dominant team in the NBA stop trying to find ways to deflect your own embarrassment for your teams by attacking fans who text and leave the game early…. I’ve been to plenty of stadiums and fans do this at every one of them.. are you made because they are texting or because they are texting due to the game being a blowout?
gt564, that’s not it at all. First off, I don’t hate the Heat. I hate Lebron James’ attitude. The biggest misconception out there is that people hate the Heat because of their success. First off, they only have one ring so far, which isn’t enough to warrant that type of hate. I’m a Celtics fan from Boston, and my team couldn’t hold a candle to Jordan and the Bulls back in the early 90s. I didn’t hate them, I respected them. I loved watching MJ and company ball back then. But if they were playing the Celtics, fuck ‘em. Cuz I’m a real fan. I loved them when Bird was was winning titles, I loved them when Bird could barely walk. I loved the ’08 team that won it all the same as I loved them in ’96 when they only won 15 games. True fans root for laundry. That’s why I don’t respect 99% of Heat fans, because they weren’t fans BEFORE they were a powerhouse. And if you aren’t from Miami you can’t do shit for me but get the fuck out of my face. You root for the team from your area, good, bad, or ugly. No excuses, no exceptions. If there’s not a team near where you live, A) move somewhere legit, and/or B) don’t just pick the dominant team so you can roll with the winners. That’s what young children do. Any adult who does that has no character as far as I’m concerned. I guess the Lakers and Knicks get some people that just go to games to be seen too, but how about Jack Nicholson and Spike Lee? Say what you want, but those motherfuckers are true fans. They’ll be there courtside no matter what.
I’ve been a Heat fan since 1988 – when the team lost their first 17 games. I rock a Dan Majerle jersey to every game. Sure some people leave early, and sure some people are there for the atmosphere, but you’ll find that anywhere. Look at attendance trends, when teams aren’t good – people don’t show up and aren’t into the game. It’s pretty naive to think that every fan is attentive and knowledgeable in every city except Miami – some are some aren’t. At the end of the day, this announcer looked like the unprofessional fool that he is when Indiana’s arena started emptying with 6 minutes left in the game- it happens anywhere! Even Chicago and Dallas who had the highest attendance in the league!
If you’re an O.G. fan I can respect that. In your case, i’m glad you guys are winning the past decade. As an over-30 Boston guy i’m all too familiar with losing teams. The last 12 years have been a dream i never want to wake up from. Unfortunately for you, you have a metric fuck-ton of bandwagoners sullying your good name. It also doesn’t help that you have one of the most unlikeable superstars ever seen in the world of sports.
I went to Miami and went to this breakfast spot that was supposed to be “great.” A goddamn ham sando was 34 fucking bucks and the waiter was so blasted off the white girl he made Rick James look like St. Theresa. Never Again.
