Yesterday night, I was fortunate enough to attend the Heat-Hornets game in Miami. Apart from learning the nuances of Heat games (which I’ll grace you with shortly), I was able to snap a photo or two:
Indeed, as a basketball fan (and as a longtime Heat supporter), the game couldn’t have gone much better. LeBron’s n-n-n-nasty behind the backboard shot ignited the crowd/ team and shortly thereafter the Heat turned on the heat and blew out the helpless Hornets.
Here are some other thoughts that jumped through my head during the game:
-Heat fans don’t show up until the second half. It’s more than true. I can’t imagine paying full price to see half of an NBA game.
-Dwyane and LeBron, both get “MVP” chants. Sorry, Heat fans, but I predict neither will take home the Maurice Podoloff trophy this year.
-This team needs Mike Miller. He’s a complete player, unlike his current replacement, James Jones (who has played great this year, nonetheless).
-The Heat are looking to get out on the break and pulling back if there is nothing there. I like this.
-The PA man and the whole crowd chant “Dos” when there are two minutes left in a quarter. It’s pretty fun, don’t ask me why, though.
Lucky for me, I’m scheduled to attend Wizards-Heat on December 18th and Wizards-Bulls on December 22nd. Look out for more AGR coverage going into the holidays!
