The Miami Heat debuted a new jersey, and it might not fly off the shelves on the merchandise stands.
The Heat’s new mustard yellow jerseys are drawing the wrong kind of attention online. They are creating plenty of memes and one-liner jokes in the process due to the new direction on color choice.
The new jerseys generated a stir, the “Earned Edition” as it is called. Needless to say, people are having a lot of fun with this one.
Miami Herald’s Anthony Chiang tweeted on Wednesday:
“Heat’s Michael McCullough said in Nov. of Earned Edition uniforms: ‘We’ve taken a color that we haven’t used a lot of and haven’t focused on a lot, and created something that we’re really excited about for Earned.’”
That was a positive spin on things. Other fans have taken to photo shopping players’ heads onto mustard bottles. You can check out a variety of responses below.
