Chris Bosh has a message for all of the Miami Heat fans who left Game 6 early when it looked like their team was going to lose: Stay home tonight. Although his teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade both said that they would welcome the fans back for Game 7 this evening, Bosh wasn't so forgiving. When asked about the fair-weather fans yesterday, he said that he doesn't want them in attendance at AmericanAirlines Arena to watch the deciding game in the 2013 NBA Finals.
"For all those guys who left, make sure you don't come to Game 7," he said. "We only want the guys who are going to stay in the building for the whole game. You never give up. People gave up on us. They can stay where they are and watch the game at home."
Wow. We don't know about you. But we give Bosh a lot of credit for calling his hometown fans out for leaving Game 6 early. And we couldn't agree with him more. If you're going to be there when your team celebrates an NBA championship, then you better be there when they're struggling, too. That's what it means to be a fan. So if you left Game 6 early, stay home tonight.
