Kid tells Heat ‘good effort, good job’ after Game 5 loss (Video)

After losing at home in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to the Celtics 94-90, the Heat were encouraged by a young fan who told them “good effort, good job,” as they were walking off the floor in Miami.

The kid became an instant hit. Soon after his encouraging words were heard on TV, the video seen above spread across the Internet.

The phrase “good effort” became a trending topic on Twitter. Even a parody Twitter account called “Good Job Kid” was created, and it amassed over a thousand followers in an hour.

The only question is if the young fan was sarcastically taunting the Heat, or genuinely trying to encourage them. We believe it was the latter.

UPDATE: The fan has been identified as 9-year-old Jack Meyer.

Video: Mark Cuban Drops S-Bomb During ESPN Interview with Hannah Storm

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban remained silent throughout the NBA playoffs, much to the dismay of the media and fans. Earlier in the season he was happy about the struggles of the Heat, so you know he took extra joy in seeing his team beat them to win the championship. When he finally did speak up, he made a point to drop an s-bomb on live TV during an interview on ESPN. Check out this video courtesy of Ben Golliver on twitter:

“Our fans just punked the s*** out of the Miami fans,” Cuban made a point to say. He says his team’s fans were louder than the Miami fans even though it was a road game for Dallas. It’s something we noticed about the Heat fans throughout the playoffs, and something I would figure Charles Barkley would say.

Charles Barkley Antagonizes Miami Heat Fans Again

We’ve previously touched on the NBA Finals side story involving Charles Barkley, the Miami Heat, and their fans. Barkley was one of the loudest critics of LeBron James when he left Cleveland for Miami and that disgust spilled into the season when he called the Heat a “whiny bunch.” Then TNT had to move their pre and post game show indoors during the playoffs in Miami because Barkley was being heckled by fans outside the arena. If you thought that incident would have taught him to lay off the fans, you’d be wrong. During a visit on the Waddle & Silvy Show, Barkley let Heat fans have it.

“There’s something about that team that annoys me,” Barkley said. “They’re just a whiny bunch and I can’t root for them. Yeah, they got the worst fans, no question. It’s not even loud in there. You’re at the game and you’re like ‘Man, it’s not even loud.’”

That last complaint is something I’ve previously mentioned. When the Heat were behind in playoff games, it was silent at American Airlines Arena. It really is pathetic sometimes. And the wealthy fans who show up wearing ugg boots and sunglasses to sit in the front row show up late, leaving plenty of empty spots. It honestly makes them look worse than LA fans, and that’s hard to do. Are Heat fans the worst fans? I don’t know about that — they’re pretty passionate about their team now, but they’re not exactly your die hard version. And you definitely wouldn’t see ugg boots on men in the front row at too many other arenas, so that automatically places them in poor company.

TNT Cameraman Goes Hottie Hunting at Miami Heat Game (Video)

One of the behind-the-scenes things cameramen do at ballgames is search for the best-looking women in attendance. I’ve worked places where they have entire compilation tapes of hotties. But you’re never supposed to do that while your camera is live, which is what happened during TNT’s telecast Tuesday night. Check out this flub via Jose 3030:

Charles Barkley Flips Off Heat Fans in Response to Profanity-Laced Heckling

Charles Barkley has made very few friends in Miami after criticizing the Heat this season. Last week he called them a whiny bunch. Before the season began, he ripped LeBron for leaving Cleveland to join Dwyane Wade, resulting in a response from Pat Riley. Miami Heat fans, whom we’ve criticized for showing up so late to games and not being too boisterous, remembered the criticism and let Barkley hear it prior to Game 3 Sunday.

Heat fans taunted Barkley with “F*** you Chuck” chants and got a reaction. Here’s the video courtesy of Miami radio host Jorge Sedano who shared it on his Miami Herald blog (language is offensive and NSFW):

I’d say I was surprised by Barkley’s reaction, but if he’s not afraid to flip someone off on national TV, why would this come as a shock? The only surprise is that TNT is moving its pregame show inside as a response. I figured they would just let Chuck end up fighting the fans.

Team Lewabosh Miami Heat Jersey Might be Worst Sports Jersey Ever

Back in July when the Bermuda Triangle of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh formed in Miami, one particular Heat fan was pretty excited. He didn’t get quite as crazy as these fans, but he went all out. In fact, the man who calls himself “Big Cheese” on twitter proudly represents the worst Heat jersey we’ve seen. Check it out thanks to the great Sports Feeder:

Notice how that’s jersey number 10, which is the total of LeBron (6), Wade (3), and Bosh’s (1) jersey numbers? You know Big Cheese wouldn’t miss a detail like that. And in case you’re wondering how to pronounce “Lewabosh,” Big Cheese has you covered with this video he made last summer. Check it out:
