Cry Miami. I can’t express in words the amount of joy I get when a player leaves a shit fan base like the Miami Heat, comes to Philly and falls in love right away. You could tell from the jump last night that Josh Richardson finally felt at home. After the game he was asked about the fans and had this to say:
“They were on time. That was great.”

Right away Miami Heat fans, which the fact that there still are any after LeBron left is amazing, got all twisted up about it.
We might be late, but we’re not dumb. We had nothing but love for you. You didn’t have to say that.

Be a man and say that shit with your chest. Don’t act dumb now. You know what you meant.

To which Josh Richardson tweeted out a statement addressing the comments. Also take a look at the time on his tweet. Nearly 2 am. Guy is so jazzed up about the win and playing in front of fans that actually support him he couldn’t even sleep.
Not a jab… i can’t compliment ppl for punctuality now lol that’s crazy https://t.co/5faiLvRvKp

First and foremost, he was 100% taking a jab. And I say good. We’re talking about the same Miami Heat “fans” that left game 6 of the NBA Finals early. You know the game where Ray Allen hit that impossible 3 pointer that basically won them the championship that year. Even Chris Bosh after that game basically said “Hey Heat fans, go fuck yourselves and stay home for game 7. We don’t want or need you.”
So to all the Heat fans out there getting upset over J-Rich’s (that’s short for Josh Richardson who now is a starter for the Philadelphia 76ers. The team that many believe will win the East and play for the championship this year. Formally played for the Heat where their fans can’t even get into a game on time because they are the most fair weather fans on the planet.) comments bothered. GTFOH. Go lay down or take a nap or whatever you do down there. Richardson is happy now and you’ll get to see him again in the first round this year when the Heat are the 8th seed going against Philadelphia.
PS: Jimmy Butler not playing in his debut for”personal reasons” LOLOLOLOLOLOL. Have fun.
