It’s still early in the 2013-14 NBA season, but the frontrunner for most clever jumbotron entertainment goes to the United Center in Chicago.
During Thursday’s Bulls-Heat game, the United Center displayed a “bandwagon cam” on the jumbotron to poke a little fun at some Miami fans in attendance.
Many Heat fans have been labelled as bandwagon supporters who first started following the team closely in the summer of 2011, when the free-agent additions of LeBron James and Chris Bosh made the franchise a legitimate championship contender again. To be fair, there are many die-hard Heat fans who have supported the team since its opening campaign in 1988-89, but we have seen a lot of evidence over the last three seasons to suggest that Miami has a lot of bandwagon basketball fans.
Check out the United Center’s bandwagon cam in the photo below.

Oh Robby.... There's no place like New York and no team like the Yankees!—
