VICErewind: The HEAT Court Evolution

Looking back at the HEAT hardwood transformations over the years and the moments that happened on them.

Our Miami HEAT court has gone through some seriously amazing changes from 1988 to present day. Over the years, the design, colors and logos transformed as the team and organization grew. When introducing our Vice courts to the mix, it rounded out the amazing campaigns and complimented the on-court jersey style like no other. Let’s take a look back at some of our courts and the moments that happened on them throughout the years. #VICErewind
