Miami on the other hand, is a small, non sports town. Have zero hall of famers, one ring and the only jersey in their rafters is Michael Jordan. Between the 06 championship team and this years team, their arena was empty.

They are bandwagon central, which in their defense is often the case for younger, small market teams. But no way to compare them to a team like LAL, which is almost synonymous with NBA basketball.
