Miami Heat fans loyalty to their team has always been questioned. They’re known for showing up late when they do come and mostly as fair-weather fans since LeBron James and Chris Bosh came to town. So with the San Antonio Spurs being ahead of the Miami Heat so often in the game, and at one point by 13 points, it’s a safe assumption that down 5 with 28 seconds left that they should leave, right?

Wrong! Ray Allen shoots an incredible three-pointer to tie the game up and send it to overtime with 5 seconds left.

Bomani Jones put a picture on Instagram of fans leaving the arena. He says he is headed to the tunnel for post game media work, and that at the point this picture is take it is a 2-point game.

He wasn’t the only media personality to capture the fans leaving. Dan Le Batard tweeted about it as well.

The most intriguing account has to come from local Miami reporter Victor Oquendo of WPLG. Victor was trying to set up his live shot and watched as fans left, then tried to get back in.

And is Victor going to defend Miami fans reputation of being fairweather and disinterested?
