Though Heat interest has remained strong since LeBron James left, courtside seats at first-round games are going for 50 to 60 percent less dollar-wise than what they did when James was here, Tickets of America tell us. Meanwhile, Heat fans were scolded on national radio this week by former NBA center Brendan Haywood. “Miami is not a tough gym to play in,” Haywood said on Sirius XM. “They have the wine and cheese crowd. They have the late arriving crowd. They have the crowd that will leave early if their team is down. There’s a lot of eye candy… [But] as far as homecourt advantage, Miami, I’m sorry, the city doesn’t have it. It’s not in ‘em. They don’t have that same passion the fans in Portland have.”
He shared his thoughts on the Cavs’ dramatic move in an interview on Sirius XM’s NBA Today channel. “From what I was hearing, David Blatt kind of lost the team,” Haywood told Eddie Johnson. “Then there were differences about what guys should be playing and what guys weren’t playing, from a management-coaching standpoint. When you throw in those type of things combined with the fact that Tyronn Lue already had a lot of power in the organization, had a lot of traction, and a lot of people that were there already viewed him as the coach, these type of things happen.”
