I know it is common here, and rightfully so, to hate the Miami Heat, primarily because of the Big Three. However, you have got to respect them for this move.

Good move by the organization. I really hope this thread can stay civil though.

I love the idea. I hope the fans actually get there on time for this. Not a shot a Heat fans but I hope they show some respect for this decision and get there in time to sing.

Respect them for singing the anthem?

Hah! I sing along all the time when I attend. So do many others. :p

But this should be pretty cool to watch. :flag:

Well since the fans don't show up until the second quarter, it won't be very loud...




Someone had to do it.

I love it. The Vancouver hockey fans did theirs in the first round game.. It was incredible.

Lets go C's!

Seems like the only good "Decision" the Heat have made since July

Only because all their fans can fit around a single microphone.

Ill be singing along, it should be pretty good...7:00pm tuesday is a rough time, i would be surprised if it was more than 80% full, it will fill out by the 2nd qtr, but i might be wrong:shrug: they sent out tweets informing fans of this so that might help. very classy by the heat organization.

This will be hilarious. It's going to be the National Anthem sung with a Mexican accent.

I wonder if they'll be wearing their Los Heat jerseys.

Mexican accent? Are there a lot of Mexicans in Miami?


I think it's really cool.

This isn't Texas or California, numb nuts. There's hardly any Mexicans here.

Very cool that Heat fans are doing this. ESPN showed the Portland Timbers doing this a few weeks back. Gave me goosebumps...

meh, whatever... how is it classy?? what did the heat do besides cancel their planned singer?

you can't force a crowd to sing... it doesn't work... the Portland Timbers thing a few weeks ago was a crowd overtaking the anthem... it wasn't planned...

this will fail... hopefully they will have some 'crowd singing' going through the speakers..

The Miami Heat can't pay for someone to sing the anthem anymore? The singer's job is to lead the song for everyone to sing along.

The Heat not having money to pay the singer/ canceling on whoever was suppose to 'sing'... LOL you people are some haters.. First off if there was a scheduled person to do it they were of course still paid.. Called contracts !!!
And what happened in the capturing/killing of Bin Laden Gave closure to A LOT of Americans.. So if they decided to let the crowd go along and do it, let it be, wasnt only the crowd it was everyone, employees players, coaches everyone.. Everyone suffered 9/11 so today was a special day that was a major step for closure to some families.. So whoever is talking smash.. STFU !!!!

Again, I find myself appalled at the lack of tact shown by most of you. I probably should't be suprised but I am. I guess I just expect people to show a little class every now and again. Silly me.

How is this a bad thing? Hell, I'm nit a Heat fan -- nor am I American, but I respect the move here... Especially the timing right after the finding/killing of Bin Laden. Some of you guys look for ANYTHING to hold against the Heat, and even turning a positive into a negative. Calm the ***** down and stop being so hate-filled

Has to be the most ignorant comment I have heard.

I lived in Cali for a bit, and they don't know of any other hispanic besides Mexicans, but you're from New York City??? Have you actually walked around your streets? There's quite a few of these mythical creatures (non-mexican hispanics) roaming around. You should really get out of mama's basement and experience your great city and it's diversity.

I think it's so weird how lame people act, I don't like the Heat, hell I love to take a shot at the Heat when it's remotely justified, but I liked watching this and thought it was tight regardless if it was "groundbreaking", it was still cool.
