What is with the Heat’s hand gesture?


Did you see this last night? As the Miami Heat were destroying the Orlando Magic they kept making the hand gesture you see in the picture to each other.

What does it mean?

Shut your mouth.

That’s it, according to Mark Jackson on the ESPN broadcast. “Shut your mouth.” Both a reminder to the team that it’s actions, not talk that matter. And a little shout out to the “hater” critics.

If they keep playing like that Orlando game, nobody will be able to talk about them.
