    [quote from Dan Devine at Yahoo's Ball Don't Lie]

    "Never give up on your team." Next time, Miami Heat fans, listen to your friend Phil Jackson. He's a cool dude; he's trying to help you out. (Also, he's dressed like Obi-Wan Kenobi, which, weirdly enough, wasn't even part of the wardrobe for the commercial. It's just what he had on when he showed up to the shoot.)

    Pretty eerie stuff here.

    And, yeah, Heat fans are the lamest fans around.

    People act like this hasn't happened to every other NBA team in the league. :rolleyes:
    People leave early, it sucks but painting an entire fanbase as non-fans just because of this?
    At least they show up.

    I dont see where it predicts game 6 of the 2013 NBA finals. It just predicts Heat fans will leave a blowout game, in which the Heat will come back. There are similarities, but saying it predicts that moment exactly is a reach.

    It was the fact that it was Game 6 of the NBA Finals, with the game hardly out of reach. Inexcusable for any fanbase.

    There is a difference between leaving a regular season game and a Finals game. It isn't like a regular season game like the T-Mac 13 points in 33 seconds or the Sheed Half-court buzzer beater where he steals an inbound to force OT. This is a Finals game where you are in a possession by possession battle.

    Even the team acknowledges the fans suck and only follow a winner.

    Houston has had similar difficulties, but you don't see the team stooping this low after signing Dwight this offseason.
