Miami Heat fans continue to leave everyone shaking their heads, and not just because they left Game 4 early....

the hometown crowd began to boo the team. Yes, the same team that has made the NBA Finals four straight times and has won the last two titles.

The booing continued at various points in the second half. However, the booing was gone once the crowd started thinning out.

The fans are no class losers. The only bigger bunch of losers than the Miami Heat Fans is the Miami Heat themselves.

Go Spurs Go.

They were routed, embarrassed, annihilated , blown out, roughed up, trounced, devastated etc last night. There was nothing for the fans to cheer for. The biggest and only lead the Heat had was 2-0.

South Florida has the worst sports fans in the country! Check out some “sold out” Dolphins game sometime and notice all the fans disguised as empty seats.

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can all opt out of their contracts at the end of the season.

These players can’t spend all the money they make. They want to play someplace where they will be appreciated. Don’t think that the fans turning their backs on them at their last two home games is not going to figure into their thinking.

They could be the God-Emperors of Brooklyn...

It reminds me of some Freepers who want to leave the War on Terror early.

When your team is down 17-22 points with a few minutes on the clock and the opponent’s defense has been solid all game, it’s time to beat the traffic. But the booing is shameful, even if you paid for the right to do it.

And the AC in the Miami Arena worked perfectly. So what's their excuse now?

The Brooklyn Nets have no cap room to sign anyone after acquiring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Deione Williams.

The team that has cap room are the Lakers who have no players under contract next year except for Kobe and Steve Nash. I think they have like 10 open roster spots.

I think the Wizards have cap room because they have young players and only Johnathan Wall has a high salary.

LeBron could make the Wizards a very good team and as a well spoken black man, he would do very well there.

The best fit for LeBron would be Houston or San Antonio.

LeBron has never liked one on one isolation basketball. If you look at his HS games, he loves the free wheeling ball movement that the Spurs and Rockets play. He would rather be Magic Johnson than Michael Jordan. He likes to make the great pass.

The Spurs will get an invitation to the White House.

“South Florida has the worst sports fans in the country!”

You should live up in Minnesota. The people up here are the ultimate fair-weather fans.

The only exception would be the NHL. Minnesota Wild fans have been pretty loyal ever since the franchise opened - even thru some of the less successful years.

But Minnesota Vikings fans are the ultimate boors when it comes to fair-weather loyalty.

Miami is almost like a third-world South American/Central American city right now.

I’d think that soccer would do well there.

They want to play someplace they're appreciated

Huh? LeBron was appreciated, WORSHIPPED in Cleveland. The three of them put together a scheme which should've been a violation of league rules to play together in Miami as an unbeatable trio to win championships.

Miami's paying good bucks for these three. They're not as forgiving as the Cleveland fans were...and look what it got Cleveland.

I've come to despise the NBA. The inmates are running the asylum.

As a Vikings fan for all of my life, I’ve endured the constant choking and losses by the team. Still a fan. Same for the Twins.

I think Lebron is smart enough to play for a team where there is no state income tax! He did that when he jumped to Miami instead of NY. No way he plays in California except road games. 13.5% income tax on millionaires!

“Miami is almost like a third-world South American/Central American city right now.”

When was the last time you were in Miami ?

I was there about 15 years ago and you would be right.

I was there last year and it is an upscale, clean city.

There was a rush by the wealthy Argentinieans, Brazilians and Venezuelans to get their money out of dodge and most of it ended up in Miami.

It is quite a pleasant city now.

“LeBron this state tax free does not want you in Tennessee.”

Why the hell not. If you heard him speak, he is a hard working, decent man.

Even Ohio has warmed up to him coming back.

I really don’t like very many blacks because they are 90% or more democrat, but this guy seems to be okay.

“I’ve come to despise the NBA. The inmates are running the asylum. “

Have you ever listened to any of the soon to be champion San Antonio spurs speak ?

Virtually each and everyone of them are a credit to their community.

Tim Duncan, Ginobli, Parker, It does not get any better than that in terms of humility, class, hard work, and values.

Sorry about the bad grammar. He actually did marry his children’s mother after many years. Personally. I don’t like all of the drama that follows him.

The NBA certainly had its era of the thug. Alan Iverson, Latrell Sprewell, and others.

But more and more, franchises are beginning to see that the way to win is to do it like the Spurs.

Look at the top teams and you find they are more like the spurs. The teams at the bottom have the thugs.

The Miami team was out played. It is as simple as that and is due to the coach of the Spurs being much more savvy and the players in San Antonio being more of a team than a collection of debutants.

Supporting Obama is certainly one reason why I would dislike him and is one reason I tend not to associate with many blacks.

However, he works hard and is articulate and seems to be a decent guy otherwise.

Popvich does not allow foolishness. Although at the top of his game, the freak Rodman only lasted a few months.

If LeBron, Wade, and Bosh leave to become God-Emperors of Brooklyn, they’ll just get embarrassed by the Spurs next year in the Finals, and the Brooklyn fans will whine even more badly than the Miami crybaby fans.

It was apparent SA played as a team, moving the ball until they created an opportunity, hustling on defense, being unselfish, while Miami waited around for James or Wade to make something happen.
