At least one brave Miami Heat fan took the streets of San Antonio on Sunday night to take his team’s loss on the chin. As you know, Heat fans have already been mocked by Tim Duncan’s girlfriend for leaving games early during the NBA Finals. Most of them probably share the same attitude as Derek, who was interviewed on live television after the game.
“LeBron did what he had to do,” Derek told a reporter from KENS in San Antonio. “The team didn’t help him that much, though. Hey, sh– happens.”
Derek’s not going home to cry himself to sleep tonight, that’s for damn sure. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. His assessment was pretty much spot-on. LeBron James was the best player on the court for most of the series, but the Spurs were simply a much better team.
As for the cursing on live television, we’ve seen much worse. Just ask that Boston Red Sox fan who nearly gave a local sports reporter a heart attack during his team’s World Series run last year.
