The Culture Is Real

This term might not carry enough wait around the NBA, but it means a great deal to Heat fans.

The pure definition of hard work and dedication sprouts from this type of culture. Not only the Miami lifestyle, but the connection between the fans and the Heat.  

The foundation that president Pat Riley and owner Micky Arison have laid out is what makes great chemistry among its inhabitants and why players work hard to achieve their dream. They share the same values and goals that make the Miami Heat organization what it is today.

Everyone buys into the culture and it spreads through the locker room. It’s a grit and grind roster and they take care of each other. The reason the rest of the league isn’t buying it is because of the amount of injuries that have plagued the Heat.

Take that away and you have a group of hungry guys ready to take on their doubters.

It’s an uphill battle, but the team prides themselves in doing it together and leaving it all out there on the floor. This year will be no different and the same motivation will carry on with a heavy chip on their shoulders. Don’t sleep on this Heat team because they have come to learn that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
