The Miami BASEketball team in the film actually goes by the name of the "Dealers" and Wikipedia notes, "the players appear to be Cuban drug dealers," but does point out one major uniform difference from the Marlins' new digs: "the chainsaw-wielding man on the back of their jersey reminiscent of Scarface."
