CBSSports.com writer Royce Young shared Bosh’s thoughts after Tuesday night's game. Bosh said, "For all those [fans] who left, make sure you don't come to Game 7. You never give up. People gave up on us, and they can stay where they are and watch the game at home."
Those fans wanted to go back into the arena once they heard the Heat forced overtime. They were not allowed back in due to the no re-entry policy at American Airlines Arena.
This is a pretty common rule for most sporting events. Look at your ticket the next time you go to a game. You should see a no re-entry policy somewhere on your ticket.
Bosh told NESN reporter Ryan O’Rorke that even he knew that fact.
"You can't get let back in after you leave. I know that. 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."
Some followers of the Heat are considered to be fair weather fans. Those who left early in Game 6 help prove that point. Even TV host Jimmy Kimmel went around South Beach to see if there was any truth to that notion. He asked so called Heat supporters about the NBA Finals. Watching the video, you see some people are just jumping on the bandwagon.
Chris Bosh has a valid point. Game 6 was coming down to the wire. It was not a blowout by any means. The Spurs did have a small lead. It did not warrant fans to leave the game early.
It is not a regular season game. This is the NBA Finals. I am guessing those fans paid a pretty penny for those tickets. I know I would not leave the game early.
