For a team that's only been around since 1988, the front office has made quite a few good things happen, especially that little championship from June and the one the team took home in 2006.
There are legends—past and present— at each position. These players are some of the most electric and dynamic scorers, as well as the fiercest and most ambitious defenders, in NBA history.
Those who have donned the Miami Heat uniform have worn it proudly, bringing in many seasons of success and plenty of hope for the future.
Heat fans have been on quite the ride since the Miami Arena first opened with a loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, the first of 17 consecutive defeats for the Heat.
Since that time, the Heat organization has done everything in its power to give the Miami fanbase the best product possible. The result has been a resounding success—the team has been relevant for nearly every season of its existence.
To think that even more success could be coming the Heat's way in the near future makes the team that much more impressive. It's uncommon to find franchises as young as the Heat with so many All-Stars and years of success, but it's come about because of the wise moves made by the front office.
