The Miami Heat are facing their most important game in history tonight and are asking fans to cheer and not to leave early. The Heat are down 3-2 to the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals and have called in the sixth man to help. In the email sent out to season ticket holders, the Heat tell fans to wear “white and comfortable shoes because “you need to be standing from the opening tip ’til the final buzzer”. Earlier this season, the Heat made a promo video telling fans how to “Fan Up,” after receiving criticism for fans not showing up on time. During the Eastern Conference finals, Charles Barkely called the Heat the worst fans in sports.
Chris Bosh is a busy man these days… in the midst of the NBA playoffs, the George Harrison of the Heatles married fiancee Adrienne Nicole Miller. The marriage came just days before the Heat’s opening round against the Philadelphia 76ers but was kept a secret until the marriage license leaked. According to TMZ, on April 5 a marriage license was filed stating: Christopher Wesson Bosh and his bride Adrienne Nicole Williams were to marry by “clergy” conducted on April 9.
Despite the Heat being on the verge of closing out the 76ers in tomorrow’s Game 4, all questions were on Bosh’s alleged secret wedding. The 27-year old center denied any leaked documents saying, “Not yet, man, not yet. I was made aware of stuff leaking out or supposed information leaking out. Yes, I am scheduled to be married, but we’re not there yet.”
According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have decided to sign with Miami. Miami will announce the signing later today with an official announcement.
The news is causing many to speculate that LeBron James will stay in Cleveland. Both Wade and James have been trying to court Chris Bosh to their respective teams. Many news-outlets have reported that Bosh was not interested in Cleveland but would follow James to another city, prompting others to wonder if James has already made his decision.
Yesterday, ESPN reported a free agent summit was held in Miami involving LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh. Wade attempted to lure over the highly coveted free agents Bosh and James. However, today the Miami Herald said the summit never happened.Reps for both Wade and Bosh are denying the summit, but others report the trio are trying to keep their meeting under wraps since the free agent market does not open until July 1. Should be interesting as to what was more convincing to win in the LeBron sweepstakes… the Miami Summit or the LeBron Flash Mob?
