No Guts, No Glory:
From No Guts, No Glory:
Less than 24 hours after the words “good job, good effort” were said over and over by a young Miami Heat fan, we already saw a “Good Effort” T-shirt show up for sale. And now, the young fan that started it all, has been tracked down by NBC Miami.
9-year-old Jack Meyer, who is pictured above, has been a fan of the Heat since he was 3 or 4, and is the young fan that attempted to give the Heat some positive reinforcement as they headed to the locker room after Game 5.
According to NBC Miami:
Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ball with his dad, and enjoys collecting the team’s memorabilia in his room. His Heat-themed bed is “super cozy,” he says.
So when people have the audacity to question whether the young Coral Gables hoops fan was mocking the Heat, the passion in his voice makes it obvious where he stands.
“LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem. Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games,” he said.
And there you have it.

Chris Bosh says whether he starts for the Miami Heat is irrelevant.
The Heat power forward is indicating that he will not be in the starting lineup for Miami when it plays host to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on Saturday night.
Bosh has played in each of Miami's past two games since returning from a strained lower abdominal muscle. Bosh came...
Well, when I’m wrong, at least I admit it. I thought the Miami Heat had a terrible fans and it turns out I was wrong. They are there behind them 100% win or lose. When they lose, at least the team gave it their all, and what more can you ask for a team that was supposed to win seven championships?
Thanks to JHB in the shoutbox for the find.

Why would Miami play the guy if he's not ready to go full bore?
Either Bosh is ready or he's not.... or Spoelstra is BS'ing us and he'll play 34 minutes.
Throughout his time in Cleveland, there were always rumors that LeBron James did not get along well with then-head coach Mike Brown. That seems to be the case anytime a team has several chances to win a championship and comes up short. If you ask Shaq, he’ll tell you LeBron never wanted to listen to Brown while he was playing under him. With that in mind, you have to wonder if...
What an exciting game! I have to admit that I was very surprised that the officiating was even. Good job by the officials for the most part. But I know that the Heat fans didn't feel that way since they didn't get their usual +20 free throw advantage. It is just amazing how Heat fans turn on their own team and players. Wow! No loyalty whatsoever. My...
On the eve of Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, we turn to Green Bay Packers, Pro Bowl wide receiver, Greg Jennings for knowledge of LeBron James lack of closing abilities.
Yes. Greg Jennings.
When Jennings dropped by the Mike Heller Show on The Big 1070 in Madison, Wisconsin he was asked about LeBron not being a great closer. Here’s...
It’s the moment that Celtics fans have been waiting over a year for. It’s time for revenge on the Miami Heat. After the Celtics won game five of the EC Finals and are looking to advance to the NBA Finals tonight, fans need to show their support! Now is the time to make your purchase [...]
Tempers were high during Game 6 of the NBA Playoffs where Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers got into a little bit of a fight. Chalmers was guarding Allen pretty tight but didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. Allen retaliated by shoving Chalmers and getting in his face. Apparently the refs weren’t watching and decided to give Chalmers a technical foul for doing nothing but getting...
Listen closely and you can hear a fan that refuses to believe that the Miami Heat are finished as he continues to encourage the team after their 94-90 loss at home to the Boston Celtics. The Heat face an elimination game against the Celtics in Boston on Thursday. BREAK UP THE HEAT!!!!
Just so all the girls can hear "Good Job, Good Effort" when they take their Miami Heat Walk of Shame to their car in the morning. Those girls' morale would be even more high after having sex with the one and only, Travis Houser. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
The kid is also needed at my bedroom door for the morning when one of my broads exits and must do her own Lebron James or Dwyane Wade walk of shame to her car. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
5:30 p.m.: All it takes is one win. The Celtics have a chance to knock off the Miami Heat on Thursday night at TD Garden in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. If they do, not only will they leave the Heat in disarray, they will have clinched yet another NBA Finals appearance. If the Celtics are able to reach the Finals, it will be their third trip since the beginning of this...
