Still hasn’t been 24 hours since the words, “Good Job, Good Effort” were said over and over by a young Miami Heat fan, but we’ve already seen a “Good Effort” t-shirt show up for sale. And now, the young fan that started it all has been tracked down by NBC Miami.
9-year-old Jack Meyer, who is pictured to the left, has been a fan of the Heat since he was 3 or 4 and is the young fan that attempted to give the Heat some positive reinforcement as they headed to the locker room after Game 5.
Jack has been a Heat fan since he was 3 or 4. He loves to play ball with his dad, and enjoys collecting the team’s memorabilia in his room. His Heat-themed bed is “super cozy,” he says.
So when people have the audacity to question whether the young Coral Gables hoops fan was mocking the Heat, the passion in his voice makes it obvious where he stands.
“LeBron James was fighting so hard, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem. Chris Bosh only played 14 minutes, yet one of his best games,” he said.
And there you have it.
UPDATE: Here’s the full interview with young Jack.
