Miami Heat Team History

Despite being one of the newer teams in the NBA, the Miami Heat have already created a storied history with several NBA championship trophies in their possession. Founded in 1988, the Miami Heat struggled in its early years as an NBA expansion team but found success in the 1990s with the addition of Pat Riley as the team’s president, leading the team to several playoff trips behind the talented duo of Alonzo Mourning and Tim Hardaway. The team would once more hit a rebuilding period in the early 2000s before the arrival of Dwyane Wade, who would lead the Heat to all their championships.

Miami Heat Championships

The Miami Heat have won three championships, with Dwyane Wade leading the Heat to their first championship in 2006 over the Dallas Mavericks, overcoming a 2-0 deficit to win the Finals in six games. The Miami Heat would return to the Finals in 2011 in another matchup with the Dallas Mavericks but would fall in six games to Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks in LeBron James’ first season with the Heat. The Miami Heat would return to the Finals every season with James, Wade, and Chris Bosh together, winning back-to-back championships in 2012 over the Oklahoma City Thunder and 2013 over the San Antonio Spurs. The Heat would fall short of a three-peat, falling to the San Antonio Spurs in 2014.

Miami Heat Famous Players and Hall of Famers

Dwyane Wade spent almost his entire career with the Miami Heat, leading the team to its first championship in 2006 and twice more after the arrival of LeBron James and Chris Bosh in 2010. Known for his creativity in getting to the basket, Wade endeared himself to the city of Miami as he made 13 All-Star Game appearances and was named twice to the All-NBA First Team list. Wade also won the scoring title in 2009 and is the franchise’s all-time leader in scoring (20,473), assists (5,009), steals (1,433) and minutes played (31,027). Wade also ranks fourth in rebounds (4,197) and second in blocked shots (774). Wade returned to the Miami Heat in 2018 to play one last season before retiring.

Before Dwyane Wade, there was the Miami Heat of Alonzo Mourning. Mourning spent most of his NBA career with the Miami Heat from 1995 to 2002 and then again from 2005 until his retirement in 2008. Mourning was part of the 2006 championship team and was named an NBA All-Star seven times, the NBA Defensive Player of the Year twice and led the NBA in blocked shots two times. Mourning ranks second in the Heat records book in scoring with 9,459 points, second in rebounding with 4,807 boards, and third, in minutes played with 17,700 regular-season minutes. A force to contend with for any opposing player looking to score near the basket, Mourning is also the franchise leader in blocked shots with 1,625 total blocks during his tenure with the Miami Heat.
