Except for being in center of all the action at the American Airlines Arena, there's nothing like cheering on LBJ, D-Wade, Bosh, and the rest of the Miami Heat champs at a sports bar with an ice cold Yuengling on hand, surrounded by like-minded ride-or-die fans.

At the peak of the 2013 playoff season, we here at Crossfade provided you hardcore Heat enthusiasts a list of best bars to watch el Heat near the AAA.

And now that the NBA season has just begun, here are five more sports bars across the 305 to watch our Miami Heat make a three-peat.

Sandbar Sports Grill. 3064 Grand Ave., Coconut Grove; 305-444-5270; sandbargrove.com.

Known as the home of fish tacos, this Grand Avenue mainstay is a sports bar haven in the Grove for both Miami Hurricanes and Miami Heat fans.

While Cane memorabilia, rope, rescue tubes, and surf boards dot the walls of this beach-themed watering hole, its large HD flat screens and projectors are always playing the Heat game.

Wednesday night penny beers and $2 drinks for Ladies Night on Thursdays will make even the sorest of Heat haters number one fans.

Little Hoolie's via Facebook.com

Little Hoolie's Sports Bar & Grill. 13135 SW 89th Pl., Kendall; 305-252-9155; littlehoolies.com.

Sure, watching Birdman and Battier shoot some hoops at restaurant chains like Flanigan's, Miller's Ale House, and World of Beer are always a blood-boiling experience, but the smaller sports bars are where the real rush is at.

Located all the way down south by the Falls, Little Hoolie's is jam-packed with 30 TV screens, pool tables, and even a live music stage.

Weekday happy hour starts at 11 a.m. and runs till 8 p.m. with $2 domestic drafts, and on game day, $3 domestic drafts and $9 pitchers quench your thirst.

Round Table Sports Bar & Lounge. 11205 NW 7th Ave., Miami; 305-756-2008.

From the outside, this bar looks like an abandoned castle, but once you get buzzed in, you enter a world of $1.75 booze, $4 mixed drinks, and $3.50 shots, with attractions like tabletop shuffleboard, a pool table, and a red NASCAR race car fixed on the wooden-panel wall.

And of course, you can't miss the neon Miami Heat logo, 'cause we all know it's all about the Heat.

¡Dale!

Finnegan's River via Facebook.com

Finnegan's River. 401 SW 3rd Ave., Miami; 305-285-3030; finnegansriver.com.

Nothing screams Miami like the ocean, pool, and our two-time NBA Champs. And much like the Big Three, at Finnegan's River, you get it all.

Whether you choose to come by land or sea, you'll get to catch every Heat game on one of the bar's two 20-foot TV screens, go for a dive in the pool during halftime and take in the beauty of the killer Miami skyline, and enjoy beer specials all night.

Sure it's still too early in the season to tell if our boys will become three-time champs, but that doesn't mean you can't cheer 'em on from the pool deck with fellow Heat fans.

Duffy's Sports Grill. 3969 NE 163rd St., North Miami Beach; 305-760-2124; duffysmvp.com.

Claiming to be the "Official Sports Grill of your Favorite Florida Teams" is a pretty bold statement to make, unless we're talkin' Duffy's.

Everything about Duffy's is sports centered from the gigantic TV screens that line the walls of the bar, to an outdoor deck overlooking the waterway with even more plasmas, to the bar's Playbook of drink specials.

Booze is two-for-one "all day every day" and even though Duffy's gets fairly packed on game day, with all those TVs, we're pretty sure you won't miss a second of the game.

Let's go Heat!
