When you root for a superstar team, your fandom is put under the microscope. For four straight years now Miami Heat fans have been picked over and criticized more than anyone who's just rooting for a sports team should.
Well, in its latest stunt, ESPN sent out a reporter to the streets of South Beach with an iPad to ask random people to identify former Heat players. It did not go well.
But c'mon ESPN, how many of your personalities could really identify Eddie Jones on the spot? Can Eddie Jones' mama even identify him on the spot?
Though, things do start getting real embarrassing when people in Heat jerseys can't even recognize Tim Hardaway.
