Before their game Wednesday night in Washington, the Heat announced stars Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh would not play while they rest up for Miami’s playoff run.
One fan probably wished he’d heard the news earlier.
A young man in the Verizon Center crowd Wednesday night displayed a sign that detailed his ordeal to make it to the game, only to see his favorite player on the bench.
The sign read: “Gas from NY $150. 2 tickets $660. Hotel room $200. LeBron on the bench … Bullsh!*”
The fan obviously had his heart set on seeing LeBron do something amazing, so it’s likely little solace to him that the Heat beat the Wizards 103-98 to clinch the NBA’s best record, even with James, Wade, Bosh and fellow starter Udonis Haslem sitting out.
The only question that remains, though, is: Even if the Heat were in town, why did two late-season Wizards tickets cost over $600?
