Heat fans remain loyal despite loss

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (WSVN) -- For the first time since 2011, the Miami Heat ended their season with a loss, without a championship ring and with uncertainty, but the fans showed up Sunday night with passion.

From San Antonio to the American Airlines Arena, White Hot fans packed the arena hoping to keep those championship dreams alive. Thousands hit the AAA for a road rally, even with their team down three games to one, but as another turn for the worst was taken in Game 5 in San Antonio, Heat fans' moods began to change.

"They choked, man. They choked," said Heat fan Allen Valiente. "I'm sorry. I'm a real fan, but you know what, we walking out right now."

"We went to the finals four years in a row, and that is something to celebrate," said Heat fan Lucy Dorlus

AC Kelly thinks the Heat was not well prepared this time around. "I'm not really disappointed. I think that they were just not prepared," said Kelly.

Heat fan Alberto Lavayen said, "It was a great season. I mean, we were in the finals four times in a row. Not for nothing, but I think this time the Spurs played much better."

Heat fans are now wondering about next season's roster. "For sure LeBron is gonna be back," said Heat fan Gabriel Padron.

However, faith was not loss. "You win some, you lose some. We're still fans all the way. We never give up," said Heat Fan Beverly Robertson.

Alex Saddati thinks the organization needs to get better players to lead us to another championship. "We really need some better players and stop leaning on LeBron to cary us for years after years," said Saddati.

YouTube sensation from last year, Jack "The Good Job Kid" Meyer, is still rooting for his home team. "Personally, I think that we did better then some teams. Like, look at the Knicks, they didn't even make the playoffs this year, and the Celtics and the Lakers and all those teams, they would have done anything to make the Finals," said Meyer.

Though the Miami Heat lost the Finals, their fans still consider them champions. "They did the best they can do, and they're still winners in my book and his book and her book, all of us," said another Heat fan.

Heat fans are optimistic that next year the team will win in the NBA Finals.
