What's better than watching the Miami Heat battle for its third consecutive NBA title? Sharing that experience with Heat fans just as passionate about the team as you, while at the same time getting the best possible up-to-the-dribble coverage all in the same place -- that's what. All you have to do is know where to look, and luckily for you, you've looked in the right place, because I've put together a list of must-have Miami Heat Twitter follows for the postseason.
If you're not already familiar with Twitter, now would be a good time to get on that, because it has changed the way fans experience sporting events. I'm not going to try to sell you on Twitter, and I already know what you're going to ask. So first of all, yes, people will eventually want to follow you -- don't worry. And, no, I don't know what you would tweet about; you'll figure that out later, I'm sure. You'll have to just trust that this post gives you a head start on realizing why so many Heat fans make sure it's by their side come game time.
Here I have compiled a list of people to follow during Heat games. It's easy, it's free, and it's a recommended window to keep open while you're watching Heat games on your couch. For those of you who already have Twitter accounts, maybe you aren't following a few of these people, or maybe you just want to straight-up use that list during Heat games. The best part about Twitter is it's sort of like a buffet -- pick and choose what looks good and decide later if it's something you want to continue consuming.
Here is a sampling of the best #HeatTwitter has to offer. Below are 50 accounts you should make sure you follow by tonight if you already aren't.

Wade says he wanted to call a timeout one minute in, because he was so tired. "I was so happy when Rio got hurt" & there was a timeout

It's as if the Heat had too heavy of a meal at halftime. No one seems willing to work.

There's a lot of canvas left for Chris Andersen to get more tattoos. I wonder what's holding him back.

By the standards set over the past three years, this was such a quiet, even normal, regular season in Miami. Playoffs are more than welcome.

Golden Oldies bring down the house during timeout. They never get old to fans. Pun intended.
