"Three of the biggest stars in the NBA. A jam-packed arena. Palm trees. Yes, things are looking sweet for Pat Riley's Heat."
ESPN's new website "The Heat Index" launched today with the purpose of covering all-things Miami Heat. As my colleague Chad Finn wrote Friday, ESPN sees enough interest in the team to warrant such coverage. They're probably right to an extent, though, like LeBron James, the network is also too deep on this to hear any of the objections.
But they're right. The Heat will be very popular. The site is likely to do well. Check out the Heat Index for your Heat news. Check out our Celtics Blog for your Celtics news. No reason you can't have it both ways.
