The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are facing off for the first time since an incredible NBA Finals series that went to Game 7. It's a marquee NBA on ABC Sunday game, but it's also early, so it's also pretty empty in AmericanAirlines Arena.
Thousands of empty seats in the lower bowl. Finals rematch.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 26, 2014
We took to our high-tech team of detectives to investigate this phenomenon and can, without question, confirm this myth is reality:
We'll cut Miami fans some slack here. They're already infamous for their "getting to seats at tip-off" struggles, and had an all-time whoops moment when they left Game 6 early, but it's an early Sunday game so there's some margin for lateness to be accepted here.
Still. Come on, Miami. That series was phenomenal last season! 220 days since Game 7! LeBron James! Get it together, Heat fans.
