After a lengthy search, the kid who told the Heat players “good effort, good job” following their Game 5 playoff loss to the Celtics on Tuesday night has been identified.
NBC Miami says Jack Meyer, a 9-year-old boy, is the youngster who was encouraging the Heat players as they walked off the floor.
“I said ‘Good job, good effort’ and Terrel (Harris) noticed me and gave me a thumbs up,” he told NBC Miami.
“You can’t give up this easily,” he said. “You know there’s always got to be a second chance for you. You always have the power to win.”
Meyer attended the game with his father, and he says he plans to cheer on his favorite team for Game 6.
“LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem. Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games,” said the encouraging kid.
Meyer told NBC Miami he has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4, and he even has a Heat-themed bed.
This kid is just too cute.
