Miami Heat Executive Apologizes for Hyping Fans Up With ‘Big News’ Tease
- Updated: August 12, 2018
The executive vice president and chief marketing officer of the Miami Heat, Michael McCullough, has apologized to Heat fans for hyping up the release of Miami’s regular season schedule for the 2018-19 season.
Hey HEAT Twitter, I need to apologize for our schedule release posts. We misread the moment and were more than a little tone deaf with those. Unlike us, but a mistake, nonetheless. That’s on me.

The Heat’s Twitter account posted three separate videos, starting on Thursday, hinting that “big news” was coming. The first video was posted on Thursday and showed Heat forward James Johnson dunking on Victor Oladipo of the Indiana Pacers.

The second video was posted Friday morning, the day of the schedule release, and showed guard Dion Waiters dunking against the Boston Celtics.
The final video, which included center Bam Adebayo blocking a shot against the Milwaukee Bucks, was also released Friday. The video of Adebayo came out about three and a half hours before the full schedule was released.

Some fans were hoping that the big news was a trade involving center Hassan Whiteside.
Whiteside traded please
