Heat fans across the 305 anxiously await the start of free agency. That week the city will be renamed Miami-Wade County for goodness sake! But weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve quickly forgotten about the draft. And with the end of basketball season fans should be eager to get any taste of the Heat they can get.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t fret. On Thursday, June 24th starting at 6:30PM you can attend the Miami Heat Draft Party at the American Airlines Arena. It will feel good to be back on home court and gladly supporting the We Want Wade campaign. The event will be hosted by broadcasters Eric Reid, Tony Fiorentino and Jose Paneda, as well as public-address announcer Michael Baiamonte.
Be one of the first 3,000 fans and get a We Want Wade t-shirt and We Want Wade commemorative poster. These will pair nicely with the We Want Wade kits that were finally shipped last week. But what about the Ã¢â‚¬Å“We Want U BackÃ¢â‚¬Â shirts and posters? I mean, Udonis deserves our love and support too!
To get revved up early for next season fans can also participate in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pick the PickÃ¢â‚¬Â contest to win a pair of 2010-2011 season tickets.
Miami will get an 18th first round pick after going without a first round selection last June. We will also have three second round picks. Not too shabby. See you there Heat fans!
