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.
