MIAMI -

King James and company may not be playing at the AmericanAirlines Arena for Game 1 of the Finals Thursday night, but you can bet Miami Heat fans will still be at the arena in full force.

Thousands were expected to flock to the AAA just to watch the Heat go after their third straight NBA championship in a row.

Believe it or not though, there were some Spurs fans stirring trouble around the arena hours before the Game 1 Road Rally.

"Both teams have played well," said local Spurs fan, Chaunce O'Conner, who was outside the arena waving Spurs signs for about an hour. "But let's face it, go Spurs!"

Fans were expected to start arriving to the official Miami Heat watch party at the AAA close to 8 p.m.
