As if anybody needed another reason to root against the Miami Heat. After losing Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals, Heat forward Chris Bosh came away less than impressed with the Oklahoma City Thunder's fans.
"Everybody keeps talking about how loud it is," Bosh said. "It's regular. We've been in a lot of other arenas and it's about the same. Once it gets really loud, it's all about the same."
I suppose that's not too infuriating of a comment for Thunder fans. Bosh wasn't done though, as he went on to say:
"They have a great homecourt here," Bosh conceded. "The fans are very vibrant and they bring a different aspect to this game."
So... it's just like every other arena that he's been to, but the Thunder have a great homecourt because the fans are "very vibrant" and "bring a different aspect to this game." I'm not quite sure how that works.
But hey, Bosh isn't impressed with the noise level at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Here's hoping that the arena is louder than ever for Game 2, as the Thunder look to take a 2-0 lead over the Heat.
