Photos: Miami Heat Unveil All-Black Alternate Jerseys

Eastern Conference champs’ new look for ’11-12.

The Miami Heat will wear new, black-on-black alternate jerseys for about a dozen regular season games, starting this year. Any hopes LeBron had of shedding his villainous image are probably out the window with this one. Revealed on the Heat’s media day, these unis are darker, more serious, more Spurs-like. Get ready, Miami.

    Not feeling those.

  • thor

    Me neither

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Who thought this was a good idea?

  • Bt

    Yeah real original, obviously they’ve never seen a george Gervin spurs jersey – they’re the exact same, not original in the slightest

  • neaorin

    Someone working for the Heat apparently discovered how to desaturate an image in Photoshop.

    ‘I couldn’t guard Lebron; because his jersey was too slippery.’

  • Ballislove

    Its just blacks on blacks on blacks

  • meloman2.0

    These jerseys look fake… not feeling them (they already have black jerseys)

  • 23

    Its not even black on black! I see white… instead of white, they should have made it a real dark red imo

  • T-Money

    i’m not mad at those.

  • Will Lee

    won’t cop

  • http://www.slamonline.com Wayno

    THe Spurs called, they want thier team colors back…

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    I kinda like these. Wear ‘em on Christmas!

  • LA Huey

    Not better than their normal black roadies but I like them.

  • Mischief

    Miami Spurs?

  • Sizzle

    “Any hopes LeBron had of shedding his villainous image are probably out the window with this one.” What a joke sentence…

  • Jono

    Love em!

  • Jose

    they’ve had these jerseys for a couple years in their online stores. . .idk why they would decide to make it an alternate jersey though

  • ron

    for a second, I thought it was my monitor.

  • Ldub20

    doesnt seem like too many people are reading the message below the picture. It clearly states it looks like the Spurs Jersey.

    I dare people who are hating on jerseys, kicks or gear in period to jump into the design industry and see how easy it “should” be to design something.

  • Mtotheserg

    All black everything

  • RobbieJay

    i hope they didnt get rid of the red ones.

  • kobesBESTfriend

    Lebron should wear this jersey every 4th quarter to let every1 else know hes not on fire

  • Think Tank

    For some reason these gave me terrible flashbacks to those old gold wizards jerseys. Bad memories.

  • RunNGun

    I’m not feeling these. Best black jerseys in the NBA right now have got to be the TWOLVES. My favorite were the LAKERS Black.

  • Jerome

    @Spaceship Jay, is that a BJ Pen quote?

  • Lloyd

    Maybe if they weren’t…shiny.

  • SoulMan

    that’s some black on black crime right there.

  • LA Huey

    Also, these were “leaked” in the PC version of 2K11

  • robb

    They are so evil

  • O

    They look like $20 practice jerseys sold at Modells that we never see players wear.


    Do those Hefty Heat force flex jerseys come with odor block?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    The black alternate jersey should have died with Michael’s Bulls. These are too generic. They have an all white jersey that would be nice as hell, except the refs probably couldn’t make out the numbers and it wouldn’t show up well on tv.

  • slamfan4life

    these look like the “limited edition” jerseys at footlocker a few years back….blk on blk Kobe one looked raw back then

  • Heals

    Not fan of these in particular, just look gimmicky. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again big mistake not wearing their black uni’s for every game…

  • ab40

    ah a new jersey to start a fire. These are ugly. Leave the silver and black to the spurs.

  • tomtom

    @lsub20 how come people can’t just dislike somthing anymore it has to be ‘hating’.

  • MBE18

    The alternate red jerseys are by far better than these!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Let me just clarify…..there is no silver in these jerseys. They are black and white.

  • Shane NZ

    They are trying to be like the All Blacks rugby team………..as they actually won a world championship………

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    look like K-Mart fakes

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

    these jersey do look like a knock-off you would see at the beauty supply store.

  • brad

    this is bad….. how hard can it be to make a nice black on black jersey

  • LaKid


  • http://slamonline Brion

    The lettering should of at least been red.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    ^^^ woulda definitely been a good look

  • AqWord

    Want one now !

  • Chukaz

    WTF i remember they used to sell these online and at some stores. I had an all black Iverson Nuggets jersey and an all black Kobe jersey. I like them but come on son ya’ll coulda done better. I woulda bought one 7 years ago when jerseys were still cool

  • http://obsessioncollection.wordpress.com grgeblck

    c’mon. it doesn’t matter if you love them or hate them. but the heat fans will buy them. it’s marketing strategy. they wouldn’t make a red/black jersey again cuz they already had that. they need something different so the fans will collect them. my 2cents worth.

  • BuzzerBeater

    Ran out of red ink.

  • Lan

    All they need now is a Haka before every game.

  • RussJones

    @chuckaz i dont know what planet your from but a fresh new jersey is always dope…and so are throwbacks. you cant ever go wrong with a jersey…

  • Groves

    Love Them!

  • http://www.realgm.com Nate James
