Crazy Fan Removed After Video Bombing Simmons' Postgame Analysis

One Miami Heat fan went a little too far in his effort to dispel the myth that South Beach supporters lack passion, earning a forcible removal from Game 7 after he started screaming behind ESPN's Bill Simmons during the postgame show.

It's possible that the celebration started for this guy before he even left the arena.

Well, either that, or he's really distraught over the lack of B.S. Reports during the finals. I mean, some guys just need their full dosage of hot takes on how much Simmons' buddy, House, can eat.

Simmons has become a lightning rod lately, as he's been a little miffed by the restraints of a studio show that he feels doesn't allow him to talk at length.

It's really too bad he doesn't have 17 other media outlets at his fingertips through which he could easily talk, type or film his opinions to his heart's content.

At any rate, it was a weird night for Simmons. He was also abruptly cut off just before talking about LeBron James' infamous "Decision," prompting some creative folks to cry "conspiracy."

Enough about the Sports Guy, though; let's get back to the drunken Heat fan at issue.

In some ways, this guy is a hero. After so many supporters walked out of Game 6 before the Heat mounted an incredible comeback, the Miami fanbase was in need of a symbol of its passion.

Not only did this guy avoid the shame of leaving early, he actually stayed late. In fact, he clearly stayed well past his welcome.

By some fuzzy fan math, he deserves congratulations. As soon as he gets out of the holding cell at AmericanAirlines arena, someone will hopefully give him his due.

Oh, and he probably doesn't need to worry about missing out on the postgame parties. Those things will be going on well into July.
