In this era of NBA teams annually wearing new alternates, the Heat have set the gold standard with their “Miami Vice” uniforms.

Every version has been highly popular. White, black, fuchsia, blue and most recently a gradient look.

But the Heat have retired that style.

What’s next for Miami?

Igor Coelho (who has had the scoop on NBA-jersey leaks):

The Heat have been on a different level from the Cavaliers as franchises.

Yet, Miami is now following Cleveland’s ransom-letter style. Bleh.

These Heat jerseys are novel, and the primary goal is more sales. But this hacked-together look conveys neither the prestige nor glamour befitting a franchise like Miami.
