A calm and relaxed Heat Media Day at the AmericanAirlines Arena was much appreciated after the media circus that descended upon last season's event at the University of Miami. In fact, it resembled most days at the media press room in size, no doubt helped by the absence of the national media who had already covered the Heat's first day of training camp last week.
After coach Erik Spoelstra, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh spoke with the media one by one, the main floor of the arena featured several photo sets for the players to strike their poses for the cameras. Here are some of the pictures taken exclusively by Hot Hot Hoops, including some first looks at Shane Battier, Norris Cole and Eddy Curry in full Heat uniforms. (And also for the ladies, Mike Miller has grown out his hair! OMG!)
