On the night of June 20th, 2006, the Miami HEAT captured the first NBA Championship in its 18-year history—a 4-2 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, brought to fruition by a band of castoffs, misfits, and budding stars better known as "15 STRONG".

And now – 15 seasons since first hoisting the Larry O'Brien Trophy – we're proud to unveil a unique collection of digital memorabilia inspired by the matchups and moments from the team's inaugural White Hot run: seven 1-of-1 non-fungible tokens (NFTs) – and their 8-bit style counterparts – plus a special Burnie NFT, each minted on the blockchain in limited supply. 

Own a piece of *digital* HEAT history, plus earn the opportunity to unlock physical versions and 2021-22 game tickets with select NFT editions.

Who Is The Creator 2
The idea for this piece was borne out of a tweet of mine that caused a bit of a stir. I’d posted a link to a blog article I’d written a number of months previous titled ‘Who is the Creator’ discussing various types of creative collaborations and why I hire people to work on my animations. It generated a lot of debate around creation and attribution with the community split on whether it’s right or wrong for an artist to hire other professionals to help them realize their art projects. I decided to push the boundaries even further and see how the cryptoart community responded. What if I quite literally had nothing to do with the physical or digital elements of the work other than coming up with the concept and coordinating it? I decided there was one artist in the space who could add huge value to this idea on levels that none other could and so I gathered my courage and contacted the great José Delbo to ask him if he’d be interested in a very unique collaboration. I explained to him that to make this piece ‘work’ he couldn't have any say in what I produced and moreover, he wouldn’t even be allowed to see the animation until it was dropped on MakersPlace. To my surprise, Mr Delbo agreed to my proposal. The animation tells the story of the creative process, which includes my roles as writer, director, and producer working with a team and making edits and changes ‘in real time’. The dialogue between myself and my ‘hired guns’ plays out in front of the viewer. The music written for the piece adds to the nostalgia of the comic book superhero theme but other elements such as the snapping and kicking of the pencil and the signing of my signature at the bottom incorporates further layers and challenges the viewer to ask important questions, such as, is the ‘Art’ the final animation (the creation) or is the ‘Art’ the concept/credit for the creation itself?
