post #16471 of 17715
man, looks like I missed out on a lot. I couldn't see the game because i was traveling through South America. hey, good to see jet back in here! I haven't seen you since the Lakers went down. well, someone was on here claiming to be you saying that he was now a Clipper fan. and Nickels looks giddy...I'm happy for you man. earlier, about half your posts on SF were about your hatred for Lebron, so despite my disappointment as a Heat fan I'm glad for you.

anyway, as I said before, no shame losing to the Spurs. they are clearly the better team and the best team in the league this year, no question. I wish you could give finals MVP to a coach. did the people at AAA really boo the team all game? I guess I'd be upset if I paid good money to see my team play in the finals and they didn't want to be there....but for one, I'm appreciative of this team that gave its fans four straight Finals appearances and two titles. win or lose, it's way more fun to cheer for a relevant team. wish they would have showed these guys more appreciation especially as they head into free agency

The boos were in both G3 and G4 towards the end of the game. I don't recall any earlier. But ya, even I felt bad for the players. They were outplayed, didn't show the same intensity that existed in the last 2 runs, but they should be appreciated for the entirety of the run. Especially when you consider Bucks, T-wolves, Kings, etc, fans who never get close to experiencing 4 strait trips to the finals. Heat fans should be the last to boo unless they are sore that "not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5..." sorta ends at 2 and change.

^ Bosh and LeBron are still in their primes are you sure they gonna leave Miami? Can't see Wade leaving to play somewhere else.

Nobody leaves until Lebron leaves, IMO. After this series, I wouldn't be surprised if they talk and agree to take a pay cut to bring someone in (heh... Lance Stephenson).

I been in this thread for 4 years I guess you missed that? Somehow despite your travels I think you would have been posting if heat were up 3-1. Also why so salty it's just fun and games man. Did you lose faith in your team already because it sounds that way I mean there are still a bunch of games left. My favorite part of your post though was the genuine surprise at the true nature of heat fans that was pure gold my bruva lol8[1].gif

yea they booed in game 4, maybe late 2nd q or 3rd, when they were down by 20. then they started leaving in droves. ppl who stayed til the end did chant "lets go heat" though.

it's a pretty sad showing considering they were actually a very very good crowd the last 2 series. like, media ppl noticed the change.

in game 3 they even cheered reallllly hard when the heat cut the lead to like 18 or whatever in the 3rd quarter.

Hard to believe anyone could be surprised by the general behavior of Heat "fans". lol8[1].gif

In game 3 the Heat cut the lead to 7 in the 3rd quarter - Spurs 81, Heat 74.

In game 4 the Heat fans did not boo the Heat. The fans booed the Spurs, who - in the fans' opinion - were a little too exuberant in celebrating their large lead.

Everyone commentating on the game, my perception, and the media at large seems to believe they were booing the Heat performance. Regardless, its poor form to boo an opposing team for being excited about being on the cusp of a championship. So SA should hold it in so that they don't upset those super dedicated Heat fans? I get it: win against Miami, but do so somberly.

I took it upon myself to do a little refresher course in when being too exuberant in celebrating large leads... goes wrong....






then of course... later ...

"Boris walks into the gym one day wearing flip-flops and holding his customary cappuccino, which was a staple for him every morning," Griffin recalled. "It was during pre-draft workouts, so he sees the Vertec [machine] and asks what it is.

"We tell him it measures your vertical leap by determining how many of the bars you can touch. He asks what's the highest anyone has ever gone, and we tell him Amare' [Stoudemire] cleared the entire rack.

"Boris puts down the cappuccino, takes off his flip-flops and clears the entire rack on the first try. Then he calmly puts his flip-flops back on, picks up his cappuccino and walks away, saying, 'That was not difficult.'"
