The Miami Heat resume the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night. The series is tied at one game apiece, but it could easily be 2-0 Indiana if not for the brain fart by Pacers’ coach Frank Vogel in Wednesday’s Game 1.
Plenty of basketball fans are rooting for the Pacers because of the stacked deck that Miami is playing with: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, etc. There are seemingly many new Heat “fans” out there who were converted by James’ decision to take his talents to South Beach in 2010. Remember Middle Finger Lady and Duckface Guy? (And how about that ‘GOHET’ vanity plate above? ‘Shopped? Maybe, but it could be real). Point is: some Heat fans really suck.
On Friday night, Pacers’ radio announcer Mark Boyle called the Heat “faithful” out on their bullshit, as the American Airlines Arena cleared out when the Pacers were up by just three points:
“…These losers are leaving. They are flocking to the exits with their team down by three. This city does not only not deserve this team…”
Listen to Boyle’s remarks about the Miami fans on the YouTube clip below. It’ll be funny to see what type of protection Boyle gets when the Pacers come back to Miami for Game 5 on Thursday.
