View Full Version : Worst Home Court?

Currently watching the Celtics @ Clippers game, and everytime the Celtics score they're actually getting cheered on pretty nicely. Kinda surprising since its LA but it has me wondering, what team has the worse fans at home? Where them playing at home doesn't really make as much a difference as other teams.

The only way to truly judge this is when the team is experiencing great success.
Charlotte is an embarrassment when it comes to who fans root for. The games I've gone too there's always a noticeable amount of opposing fans there. But since the team's always been bad, there's no real way to judge.

Teams like Miami and NY, now, you can get a good sense on how good their fans are.

Phoenix's fans are pretty bad too. Even during the successful years, LA and Boston's fans in the crowd ALWAYS seem to make their presence known from a TV standpoint.

Piston's fans attendance is pretty terrible right now. I'll be sure to support them when I can afford to. I assume some people feel the same.

I remember when Kobe got a MVP chant from Boston fans back in 06 or 05.
Nowdays the worst homecourt MUST be the Nets lol, there are always more fans of the opposing team than the Nets :facepalm:

Miami had people cheering defense when Miami was on offense last night against the Knicks, and they were booing LeBron on his free throws there. Thats just unbelievable when you have LBJ on your team....and this is coming from a Knick fan.

How exactly are we supposed to stop transplanted New Yorkers from buying season tickets? Do you know how many new yorker turds live in Miami . . . people who have been living in florida for 20+ years but still root for NY teams because of childhood ties or their parents or whatnot. How the hell are Heat fans supposed to stop those people from buying season tickets?

2 Finals appearances and they still didnt pack the arena.

A support base so pourous they have to relocate.

Star players criticizing the venue during and after their time there.

Star players whispering to other players to stay away from there because of the lack of home support.

It rhymes with Kersey.

I understand that but you can't let their cheers outperform yours on your own home court...especially when you have arguably the best player in the league and you're playing against your rivals.

Its nice for a Heat fan to finally acknoledge they dont really have a true fanbase. They have a partial fanbase, the other part is comprised of Knicks fans. If it wasnt for transplanted KNicks fans the stadium would be half empty. The Miami basketball fanbase is comprised of basketball enthusiasts from NYC. Without transplanted NYers Miami would care less about basketball.

Transplanted Nyers support your fanbase and im glad you have come to terms with it. NYers brought their love of basketball to Florida.

Ive yet to meet a Floridian who was actually from Florida and thats over 20 years of traveling there. Florida is where you go when you cant make it in NYC.

Yes, turd, because there wasn't a massive waiting list for potential season ticket holders. The fact that ~1,000 transplanted new yorkers beat some heat fans to the line means that the stadium would be half empty but for NY fans.

jersey when they play the knicks. it honestly was like a home game for the knicks. all the knicks players said that after the game too that it felt like a home game. even last night against the heat there are tons of knicks fans you can hear them booing james at the foul line. knick fans are diehard

This post is full of ignorance, especially the last line.

In general, it's funny that the majority of people who care about comparing cities are the people in NY. They rave on and on how NY is better than LA, better than Chicago, better than Miami, better than NJ, how every one loves the city and NY is so great, their sports teams are the best, your food is the best, economy is the best, and women are the best looking. At some point you have to ask if you are convincing only yourselves of that, because nobody else cares. You are the only ones "competing".

I am from Brooklyn, but lived in Miami the majority of my life. I've visited NY at least 10x spending a number of summers there. I, and any other competent adult who's not reliant on Mommy, would move to NY if that's what I really wanted. I don't live in Miami because 'I cant make it in NYC'. :facepalm:

Anyway, Miami is not a big city, period. NY has 16x the population of Miami. We have a lot of tourists from NY, a lot of retired people from NY, and/or partial residents from NY who use FL for tax purposes. So I wasn't surprised by the fanfare in the game last night.

I'm sorry but any time your home town hero is being boo'd in his OWN STADIUM, that's bad. I can't imagine Derrick Rose ever being boo'd at the United Center. I knew Heat had problems with their fans not showing up for the games but what I saw yesterday was inexcusable. Lebron being boo'd at home? gtfo

at least it wasn't Wade

Miami. They had that "fan up" marketing thing going because people would not get to the game on time, or at all.

Everyone is on time, the place is rowdy, its an awesome experience. During the season? We deserve a :facepalm: , unless its a marquee game, in which case the arena gets crazy.

Ya there were a ton of Bulls fans in Milwaukee last night. I actually drove up there for the game with a couple buddies and we saw multiple buses waiting outside to escort the many Chicagoans home after watching a nice road victory.

Either way though, it was pretty cool hearing an overwhelming MVP chant whenever Rose had the ball down the stretch.

miami, easy. miami fans only care about the fins and canes. y punto. the only reason the game was sold out is because knicks fans bought tickets to support their team against those motherfathers. where else would you see their teams 2nd best player getting boo'd at the free throw lines. and you KNOW lebron noticed it!!

dwade is loved tho. just not enough to show up to the games. i love miami (the city, not the team) but there's just too small a hometown population to produce a great fan base.

yes, msg boos when players are stinking it up. and yes, msg will chant mvp for kobe in recognition of his greatness. but we'll never boo one of ours as he's shooting a free throw.

boobie gibson, king of cle, i see you. lebron, queen of miami, smh.
