Not Cool: Bulls Fans Cheer When They Think LeBron Is Injured (Video).
Chicago Bulls fans celebrate as they think LeBron is injured (video).
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Celebrating a player’s injury is tacky. Come on Chicago Bulls fans you are some of the best fans in the world. You’ve got more class than this.
I understand Chicago Bulls fans being frustrated as they watched their team losing to the Miami Heat 74 to 58 with just 7:15 left in the game. I can further understand they’re pain still waiting for MVP Derrick Rose to return to the lineup. What I can’t understand is them cheering when it looked like LeBron James might have injured himself. That’s just tacky.
Chicago has some of the best sports fans in the world. They are die-hard fans that are loyal to all their teams. True fans of baseball, basketball and football from any city respect the passion and loyalty Chicago fans have for their teams, but cheering for an opposing player’s injury is not cool in any circumstance. Cheering for them to miss a shot or even taunting them for sucking at the free throw line are fine, but cheering for injuries is just classless. You’re better than that Chicago fans.
