The Miami Heat will wear commemorative jerseys and warm-up gear when they face the Chicago Bulls on Opening Night this season. This fresh championship gear will also be available via the NBA Store, so all Heat fans can share the glory.
Because it’s Miami, there will be a large portion of NBA fans (mainly Bull fans) who think this is just another extension of LeBron James’ immeasurable ego. I think it’s a great initiative and like Trey Kerby from #TheStarters suggests, it’s only for one night, so lighten up people!
Much like when the NBA introduced Larry O’Brien trophy logos on NBA Finals jerseys back in the 90’s, this little initiative is a fun way to differentiate the achievers from the rest of the pack. Kids watching the Heat play on Opening Night will see this gear and wish that one day they will be able to sport the look.
Looking forward to seeing the Heat don these threads. They’ve certainly earned them with their epic win in last season’s NBA Finals.
