Heat President Pat Riley is back in recruiting mode, and hopes to close the deal with free agent forward Gordon Hayward, the same way he did with LeBron James back in 2010.
When Hayward makes his way to his meeting with Riley, it won’t be hard for him to picture what he would look like wearing a Heat jersey. That’s because there’s already a giant banner of him wearing in a Miami jersey hanging outside American Airlines Arena.
The banner probably won’t make any difference in the end, but you have to give Pat Riley credit for understanding the art of the sales pitch. A-B-C.
Here’s a video of the banner for those photoshop conspiracy theorists among you:
