LeBron James, Miami Heat unveil nickname jerseys

heat-nicknamesLeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Ray Allen and the Miami Heat have finally revealed the nickname jerseys that have been officially sanctioned by the National Basketball Association.

The two-time defending NBA champions will wear the following nicknames on their jerseys from the sport’s “Name Collection” that will be unveiled during Friday’s nationally televised game against the Brooklyn Nets.

The three-time Eastern Conference champs will also wear the nickname jerseys at three Heat home games: on Jan. 21 vs. the Boston Celtics and the March 12 and April 8 games against the Nets.
