The Miami Heat have the WORST fans in the NBA


They might be good… Hell, they might be on the verge of being a great team at this point (we’ll see). The point here has nothing to do with the ‘team’ itself, so anyone who comes talking about how LeBron is amazing or DWade is one of the best players in the league type of nonsense, you can keep it. I don’t dispute their talent, they’re quite obviously 2 of the best players in the NBA today. The point here is about their fans. Watch ANY Heat game, EVEN during the playoffs(!!!) and you’re guaranteed to be SHOCKED by how many empty seats there are. That’s a damn shame. Imagine how much more intense it would be to play the Heat if they had rowdy fans like the Thunder, Kings or Jazz.

  1. When I heard the broadcast team on TNT discussing how loud the building would be Monday night…I did flash back to all the Heat games over the years where there were an awful lot of fans disguised as empty seats. Can’t get folks out to see the Heatles in person? If not now, when?

    Yea, I completely agree. It’s a shame that they can’t get fan support, especially in a city like Miami where the showmanship and celebrities coming out to the games should be just a few notches below NY and LA.

    On behalf of Heat fans, I’ll say the following:

    (1) We can’t afford the tickets.
    (2) We’re a Latin(o) American community (even if you’re not of Latin American origin, the town is culturally mestizo enough to be it’s own extension of Latin America). This means punctuality is not important to anyone here–in fact, we’re usually an hour and a half late for everything.
    (3) Most of the people buying the tickets are celebrities and upper-class folks (see point (1)), so I’m shocked you’re not noticing celebs.
    (4) Go to a bar in Miami during the game. You’ll see showmanship and all that other ‘fan’ behavior you’re seeking. Shoot, make a friend and go to a Heat getty/bbq. You’ll never be the same after that.
