MIAMI — Sure, the Miami Vice-themed uniform is nice. But Goran Dragic is taking the look to another level.

Picking the five best Miami Heat uniforms over the years

miami-heat-2012-2013-white-hot-heat-alternate-jersey-uniform“If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good.”

Those wise words from the inimitable Deion Sanders explain, in many ways, the need for multiple jerseys if you’re a professional sports team these days. You see, busting out the same old home and away jerseys are a thing of the past.

The Miami Heat are just one of the teams with a plethora of uniform options.

Here’s my list of the five best Heat jerseys:

5. Although the Heat have no formal affiliation with the old ABA squad, the Miami Floridians, the franchise paid tribute to Florida’s original basketball team with this look in 2005-06. The black uniform with an orange and pink stripe running down the left side is eye-catching but subtle, stylish yet relaxed. This uniform screams “Miami!”mia-heat-floridians-away


4. With Latinos making up close to 70 percent of Miami’s population, it was imperative for the Heat find a way to honor that piece of the community. The NBA created a Latin night promotion for which the Heat became “El Heat.”el-heat-intro-uniform-0


3. In 2001, the Heat made some changes to their alternate, all-red uniform. For the first time, the uniform stated the city name on the front, and never again would fans forget where the Heat are from.thumb


2. You can never beat the classics. The original Heat uniform — in white with red and orange trim on the side — is a tad plain, but it’s quite striking in its simplicity. The bold font, taken from the original Los Angeles Lakers jersey, put the NBA on notice that a new force was emerging in South Florida.throwbackfront


1. Every team in the NBA now has playoff jerseys. These babies, nicknamed “White Hot,” were first introduced in 2013 when the Heat were promoting their back-to-back championships. 226dadd6a618d5f71a501afe66c367fe
