“Don’t come to game seven”. That’s the message Chris Bosh has for the fans who left early in game 6. He seems to feel betrayed by their lack of trust in the Heat.
“For all those [fans] who left, make sure you don’t come to game seven,” the Miami big man said. “You never give up. People gave up on us, and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home.”
Wow!! Harsh words from Bosh, who’s taken a bit of heat from fans for not being consistent and more aggressive in the paint. The fans who left the game early really missed a treat.
“For all those [fans] who left, make sure you don’t come to Game 7,” the Miami big man said. “You never give up. People gave up on us, and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home.”
Many fans who left early were begging to come back inside once they heard about the change in the game momentum in favor of the Heat. Of course, once you leave the arena, there is no re-entry.
“You can’t get let back in after you leave. I know that,” Bosh said. “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.”
The NBA finals have been everything we thought it would be when we learned the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat would face off for the coveted title. San Antonio is not a team that will give any team a win and for every win Miami got, they had to fight for it and earn it. That was the case for game six when Miami came back from a deficit with critical plays led by NBA all-time leading scorer Ray Allen. I can’t imagine what the energy was like inside the arena, and the fans who were there were witnesses to the best the NBA has to offer.
The rest were checking in on the game from their phones in the parking lot.
Despite their wayward attitude, some Heat players, including LeBron James and Mario Chalmers seemed to understand how fans may have felt. Said LeBron James,
“I just know in my household, my wife was like, ‘Would you please stop doing that to me?’ My mother-in-law, even my sons, they were like, ‘Oh, my God. You guys lost and won at the same time,'” he said. “I know. We know. I apologize to our fans from last night. But the game is — that’s why the game is played all the way to zeros.”
Mario Chalmers invited the fans to return for tonight’s game seven:
“To the fans that stayed, thank you. To the fans that left, maybe you’ll stay in Game 7.”
I hope they all return, and no doubt they’ll stay to end. They will heed the words of Dwyane Wade who pumps up and revs-up the team before every game saying:
“To the last minute, to the last second, to the last man we fight!”
And that’s it. I’m sure the prodigal fans will return.
