The Heat played at Miami Arena from its inception in 1989 until 2000, when it moved three blocks east to AmericanAirlines Arena, located in downtown Miami on picturesque Biscayne Bay. The arena boasts the Miami Media Mesh outdoor LED marquee, which, at more than 3,400 square feet, is the largest LED board of its kind on any arena or stadium in the country. When flying over the facility you can see the silhouette of a giant AmericanAirlines aircraft painted on the roof. The Heat were to celebrate their 2012 NBA championship with a ring ceremony Oct. 30, 2012, before hosting Boston.
