The 2006 NBA Finals is a dream matchup for AmericanAirlines executives, as the airline owns the naming rights to the arenas in both Dallas and Miami. Each has it's own design, it's own features and it's own celebs. While the center has been a great home to the Mavs in the regular season, the Heat have had a bigger home-court advantage in the Playoffs. And since you were wondering, the spelling without the space is the correct branding.
