It was a disappointing weekend for Hornets fans, after two losses to Miami and elimination from the NBA playoffs. But one fan had a particularly rough go of it. That would be the court-side season ticket-holder dubbed purple shirt guy. During the playoffs game, he paced the sidelines yelling insults at Heat players. And people noticed.
Fans of both teams took to Twitter crediting or blaming purple shirt guy for firing up Heat Guard Dwayne Wade to make several big shots in the fourth quarter to propel the Heat to victory on Friday night in Charlotte. Michael Deason from Greensboro is purple shirt guy.
