The Miami Heat are are arguably the best team in the league. They have two of the best players in the league playing side by side with one another, to many people's dismay and are the favorites to win the championship this year after falling just short last season.
That being said, the history of the Heat is nowhere near the caliber of what the roster looks like today, and as we are often times reminded, the history of franchise does matter. There are not multiple banners hanging in American Airlines Arena like they do in Staples or Boston Gardens. Miami does not have a Magic Johnson, a Larry Bird, a Michael Jordan, but that brings us to the question: "Who is the face of the Heat franchise?"
Miami was formed as an expansion team in 1988 and have come a long way since then, when they lost their first 17 games. I think it's about time we declare the heart of the Heat.
There are many candidates, but once you narrow it down to a few guys, this decision gets a little tougher than Lebron's.
