MIAMI — The Miami Heat earned the chance to wear fuchsia. And 15 other teams will soon be getting bonus uniforms as well.

The Heat unveiled their latest uniform Wednesday, part of the “earned” collection that will be rolled out by the NBA and Nike as a perk for the 16 teams that made the playoffs last season. Miami’s is “laser fuchsia,” with white lettering and numbers, trimmed with a tiny bit of black and light blue.

Miami plans to wear the fuchsia three times, starting with a game on Dec. 26. Some teams will begin wearing them for Christmas games.

“We tried some variations and we tried some different colorways, and luckily we were able to land some buy-in for something that is definitely unique to the NBA and pro sports in America in general,” said Brett Maurer, who designed the uniform for the Heat. “We were able to really own this fuchsia colorway.”
