View Full Version : Heat Unveil ABA Throwback "Miami Floridians" Jerseys

The annual Uni Watch NBA season preview column, which was posted here on Page 2 Wednesday, mentioned that there were nine ABA-based throwback designs still waiting for their official unveilings. Now, the first one has already shown up: The Heat will play several games dressed as the old Miami Floridians.

This isn't the first time the Heat has resurrected the Floridians' look. Back around 2004, they wore the black road version, instead of the white home design they'll be going with this time.

"It took a bit of convincing to get the players to embrace the design, what with all that magenta," says Heat chief marketing officer Michael McCullough. "You'll notice I said magenta, not pink." Whatever you say, Michael.

The Floridians uni, which the Heat will wear for six dates (Jan. 21 and 22, Feb. 5 and 7, and March 6 and 7), gives the team a staggering six different uniform designs for this season: home, road, red alternate, "Back in Black" alternate, "Latin Nights" alternate, and now the Floridians design. Why stop there? Go for lucky seven!

I would root for the Heat if they all played with the fros.

So it was okay for us to like them back in '04, but now we can't?

I don't speak for all Heat fans, but the majority just genuinely like the uniforms .. We don't shy away if we don't like something in particular ..

I like it but I think no shocker that the team James is on is going to be wearing more than 3 jerseys in one year.

I always felt James was more focused on his teams entrances, or his dunk celebrations or what jerseys to go out in... than the actual game.

I am sure he was not the mastermind in making new or bringin in more possible jerseys for Miami in a given season but I would not be shocked if once again he had a hand in it.

You may not see it, but already I feel James' main priority is winning. He may say it, he may believe it but from what I always see. He is no work dog, and work dogs win championships

Will they be wearing the wigs on-court as well? If so then good. Hopefully it impairs their vision and at times itches their heads to cause frustration and confusion.

im ordering mine in Bosh like right now, i already own the black one in D.Wade and its the most pimp jersey i think i have ever seen in my life, next to the lime green 71-72 hawks jersey which i also have.

Hell to the yeah on this on, although i am latin and that may explain why i love color schemes like this.

and yes i think the miami marlins also have the best new jersey i have ever seen in my life.

I don't see any correlation between the two franchises that the Cold would feel the need to wear these. These clowns just don't get it. Enough is enough. I mean it's funny watching them continuously embarrass themselves but I'm starting to feel sorry for them.
