These are good days for the Miami Heat on the court and off the court.
The Heat ranks fourth in team merchandise sales at NBAStore.com since the league restarted the season (from July 30 through Monday), the NBA announced Wednesday.
It marks the first time the Heat has been in the top five in team merchandise sales since the final season of the Big 3 era in 2014, when the roster included Chris Bosh, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
The only four teams ranked ahead of the Heat on the list were the No. 1 Los Angeles Lakers, No. 2 Boston Celtics and No. 3 Chicago Bulls. The No. 5 Golden State Warriors rounded out the top five.
The Heat also has a player ranked in the league’s top 10 on the jersey sales list. All-Star forward Jimmy Butler ranks 10th, which was also determined based on NBAStore.com sales from July 30 through Monday.
It marks Butler’s first appearance in the top 10 on the jersey sales list since the 2018-19 regular season.
