Heat Begin Title Defense In Position To Become Miami's Most Popular Team

NEW THREADS: The Heat are scheduled to wear six different uniforms this season. Tonight's jerseys feature gold trim elements outlining the team name, along with the Larry O’Brien Trophy affixed to the right shoulder of the uniform and on the back of the warm-up jacket. The team on Nov. 24 will wear its White Hot uniform and will re-christen the traditional “Black Friday” date as “White Hot Friday.” A red Christmas Day uniform will include white trim outlining just the team name, player name and numerals. The red throwback 25th Anniversary Hardwood Classics uniform pays homage to the mid-90’s Heat teams. In addition, the ‘12-13 season marks the seventh year the Heat will celebrate the NBA’s Noche Latina initiative (Heat).
TURNING UP THE FIRE: The AP’s Tim Reynolds notes there have been “a slew of upgrades” at AmericanAirlines Arena “over the summer -- slightly different looks here and there, a new nightclub and restaurant, more concessions and bars for ticketholders to enjoy.” The Heat will “even offer fans the chance to purchase championship-ring-related merchandise, designed in the same manner as the players' title-reward jewelry” (AP, 10/30).
