Pacers' radio broadcaster: Heat fans are 'losers'

Game 2 ended in disappointing fashion for the home crowd when Heat forward LeBron James uncharacteristically committed two turnovers in the final minute of the fourth quarter to help the Pacers seal a 97-93 win.

The sight of those two miscues was apparently too much for some in the American Airlines Arena crowd, who departed before the final buzzer. The early exit apparently delighted Indiana’s radio play-by-play broadcaster Mark Boyle, who ripped the Heat’s fans for not staying all the way through to the bitter end.

“We are literally sitting in the crowd here,” Boyle said, in an audio file of the broadcast posted on Miami sports site PageQSports.com. “These losers are leaving. They are flocking to the exits with their team down by three. This city does not only not deserve this team, they don’t deserve any team.”

Boyle, who has worked for the Pacers for more than two decades, posted a response on Twitter after receiving criticism over his comments about the Heat’s fans.

“It appears they don’t like me in Miami,” he wrote. “Ouch.”

1. And your tiny little red state deserves what?

 

The NBA season is effectively over. The other conference comes down to two wide places in the road that most people couldn't find on a map. And this series is between an obscure little state (which would at least help the map-seekers somewhat) and Satan the Devil.

4. Only 6 NBA teams play in a city larger than San Antonio

On edit - Miami is the smallest city in the Conference Finals.

5. True, but it's annexed most of its metropolitan area

 

nearly all of Bexar County. Same deal with Jacksonville in the NFL.

Miami, by contrast, draws its fan base not only from the city proper (a more appropriate comparison might be to Miami-Dade, which is the unified city-county government) but from Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and all the way up to West Palm Beach.

6. The San Antonio metropolitan area is the 31st largest

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_metropolitan_areas

I don't think the list is includes metropolitan area because there is Phoenix at #6, then where I live--Mesa is #38. The list would just combine those two cities if that was the case.

San Antonio could be listed as you say but I read that is the fastest growing city in the top 10. However, Miami's metropolitan area is the 10th largest so if you include metropolitan areas, Miami is a lot larger.
