Miami HEAT Fan Wins Once-in-a-lifetime NBA “Insider” Experience

MIAMI, Dec. 12, 2008

HP today announced that Jhoan R. has been named the “HP Insider” and has won a week of behind-the-scenes access to the Miami HEAT basketball team. He will be able to share his experience with others using free technology products from HP.

Jhoan’s experience will begin courtside when the Miami HEAT take on the Atlanta Hawks at the AmericanAirlines Arena on Dec. 12, and will continue through Dec. 19. Throughout the week, Jhoan will sit courtside for two home games, travel to the Miami HEAT at Memphis Grizzlies game, tour the AmericanAirlines Arena, attend a HEAT press conference and join HEAT Head Coach Erik Spoelstra for a meal.

Jhoan also won a collection of HP products – including an HP Pavilion dv4z series mobility notebook, HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One Printer and HP Photosmart M547 digital camera – to help capture his behind-the-scenes experience. He will use this HP technology to share blog postings and photos of the week on

The HP Insider contest is a part of HP’s recently announced partnership with the Miami HEAT and the NBA to create integrated initiatives to enhance the game experience for basketball fans.
