Why has Miami been wearing their throwback in pretty much every game while the P's have only busted the pin stripes out twice?

Looks like we have two more games wearing them against the Bulls on March 3rd and Suns on March 30th.

Yeah, but the Heat have been wearing them in pretty much every game. Even when the other team is not a hardwood classic team.

Also, that BUlls game is a Sunday.

I think as long as the game is nationally televised the Heat can wear them if they want. That schedule I posted was just the NBA's designated nights. Since the Pacers don't get a lot of national TV love, we don't have many opportunities.

I'm guessing too that Miami has had more nationally televised games(NBATV) than previosuly thought because of getting voted on "NBA's Fan Nights", so they have tons of opportunities to wear them.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Heat so they've been wearing the throwbacks more in honor of that. Every game in February they're wearing them. On the local broadcast they've been doing a lot of retired Heat player interviews and classic highlight packages this season as well.

My guess would be LBJ likes them. I know he was the reason the Cavs wore their throwbacks and alternate almost every other game.

Those Heat retros are dope. They should bust out the black ones too.

Why can't PS&E decide whenever they'd like, to just bust them out? If that's a rule, its a pretty dumb one.
