Fan escorted from courtside seat for heckling during Heat-Jazz game (video)
Details are sketchy as to exactly what caused an usher to escort this nattily attired fan from his pricy courtside seat during the Miami Heat-Utah Jazz tilt at EnergySolutions Arena in Salt Lake City on Monday, but Dwyane Wade’s presence nearby prompts speculation that he had something to do with it.
The guy, not surprisingly, appeared none too pleased with his removal and can be seen talking away as the usher/security staffer walks him out.
It sure appears that Wade had at least some part in the man’s removal. Yet, according to a tweet from The Miami Herald’s Joesph Goodman, D-Wade reported after the game that he had nothing to do with the distracting removal that occurred late in the third quarter of the Jazz’s 104-97 home court victory over the visiting Heat. Instead, Wade reportedly said that the fella was ejected from the arena for saying something to the official, despite the fact that Wade appears to be gesturing to the guy in question preceding the sharp-dressed man’s heave-ho. Or was Wade simply clearing a path for the guy and security?
What to believe? Either way, the guy was doing something that ruffled the feathers of somebody who has the ability to get someone kicked out of a game. And that appears to be his biggest mistake. Either that or wearing that ridiculous hat. Or those pants.
