The Miami Heat is one of the most polarizing teams in all of professional sports. Lump them in with the New York Yankees, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New England Patriots.

Regardless of whether you love them or hate them, the Heat hoisted the championship trophy in June, and they are poised to do it again in 2013.

Since LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade and the Heat in 2010, the team has continually improved.

There have been some hiccups along the way where it looked like they weren’t “jelling” early on, but they have been dominant for the past two seasons.

The Heat’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011 NBA Finals, where the team led the series 2-1 before dropping three in a row, only made their drive to win that much stronger.
