There’s now proof that South Florida has become a basketball town. In fact, after two Miami Heat championships, all of Florida seems to be smitten by LeBron’s team.

That’s at least according to data released today on the number of Florida specialty plates. It shows that the Miami Heat tag has surpassed the plates for all other Florida pro sports teams.

In 2011, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had more specialty plates issued than any other pro sports team in the state, according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
