AAC fills up for Game 6 watching party
Just about every seat is filled as the Mavericks look to win their first NBA championship with a win over Miami. Fans paid $5 to enter the arena and another $5 for parking, in most cases. The court and baskets remain in place as the fans are set to watch the game on the scoreboard.
“This is as close as we’ll get to see an NBA Finals game,” said Dallas Myers, who made the drive from Joplin, Mo., with his friend, Drew DeArmond.
The only seats not taken are the suites and some of the club areas. Fans are decked out in Mavericks’ gear from head to toe and the Fan Shop has done steady business since the doors opened at approximately 5:30 p.m.
There are even a few brave souls in LeBron James’ Heat jerseys.
