In Christopher Nolan's 2008 film The Dark Knight, Aaron Eckhart delivers one of the movie's most iconic lines. While portraying Harvey Dent, Eckhart says "the night is darkest just before the dawn." This legendary line can be compared to Miami Heat fans' feelings during NBA offseason.
As regular season approaches, Heat fans' excitement and expectation for action inside the American Airlines Arena grows. However, the anticipation does not end with fans. Heat staff is just as pumped. Miami Heat's social media team, for example, has been killing it with these Block Week posts.
We have discussed NBA Assist Week already. In fact, NBA Block Week should not be a foreign topic among regular readers. That the Miami Heat is having fun on social media with block week should not really come as a surprise.
Heat fans have grown accustomed to seeing some pretty mean blocks at the AAA and the old Miami Arena over the years. This recent post may refresh some memories if none immediately come to mind:
We may have brought back this unfortunate memory of Alonzo Mourning, recently but do not think for a second we are not constantly aware of 'Zo's greatness.
It seems that 'Zo's defensive mindset and aggressiveness was passed on to the more recent generation of Heat players.
Here is one of the latest #NBABlockWeek posts the Heat shared.
There's plenty to unpack in this video. First of all, what a fantastic use of kittens. Next, we should point out that all these blocks were from last season.
Starring the video is high-flyer Derrick Jones Jr., breakout star Bam Adebayo and hustler Justice Winslow. It is fitting that all three players embody Heat Culture.
The Block Week party does not end there. The latest post is a doozie. Flashback Friday and block week in one sweet post that will have any Heat fan ready to party all weekend long.
Perhaps the most important block ever made in Heat history.
You know the comment section was an all-out party after these were posted.
Keep the tweets coming, Heat Nation.
