Former Miami Heat All-Star Chris Bosh is providing stories from behind the scenes of his championship runs alongside LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on The Last Chip and recently wrote about the racial undertones his team faced when they traveled to play the Indiana Pacers.
He compared the crowd at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to a Trump rally when discussing the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals:
And any time you travel to Indiana for an NBA game, you’re faced with the same narrative: This is basketball country.
Sure, many of the players on the Pacers were Black, but have you ever seen the crowd in Bankers Life Fieldhouse?
The Heat also defeated Indiana in the 2012 playoffs and a 2014 Eastern Conference Finals rematch.
