Chris Bosh Doesn't Like Bandwagon Mavericks Fans

While the NBA lockout teetered on disaster for the league, it did produce one excellent consequence: the Dallas Mavericks will open the season at home against the Miami Heat on Christmas day to open the season -- and raise their championship banner prior to the game. The lamest member of the superfriends in Miami, Chris Boshthinks that the ceremony is going to suck.

Bosh, who is a Dallas native, thought that there were too many Mavericks fans during the offseason as well.

Bosh spent only a week back home in Dallas during the offseason, partly to enjoy the Miami surroundings with his wife, but also to avoid the negativity from fans back in Texas -- fans, he added, that weren't so abundant when he was growing up.

"I didn't want to hear all the fans," Bosh joked. "But it's funny because there wasn't a lot of Mavericks fans when I was a kid. But now all of a sudden, everybody's a Mavericks fan."

That's funny. Before the superfriends teamed up in Miami, did anybody care about the Heat? As if teaming up with two superstars in Miami, in a league dominated by player interest more so than team interest, isn't going to invite bandwagon fans.

Maybe Bosh can have a few tissues ready for LeBron James when they raise the banner, since it's going to suck so much -- it wouldn't be the first time LeBron cried in Dallas.
