If you didn't anticipate Dwyane Wade at the end of this list, suffice it to say you don't know the Heat very well.
Wade will end his career as a top-tier shooting guard, trailing just Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. His placement on the Heat's rankings, however, is unquestionable.
Arriving in South Beach by means of the 2003 draft, Wade instantly confirmed himself as the future leader of the franchise.
Whether you point to his stellar play in the regular season, or more notably in the postseason against the Charlotte Hornets, it was from early on that Wade looked to be a superstar.
After the acquisition of Shaquille O'Neal, Wade led the Heat on their most successful run. With another All-Star by his side, the 6'4" guard put on a performance for the ages in Miami's 2005-06 postseason. He scored the 11th-most points in a single playoffs, going to work against powerhouse teams like Chicago, New Jersey and Detroit.
In the NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, Wade had the third-highest points-per-game average in the history of the series. His 34.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting was too much for the Mavs to handle, despite many questioning the 16.2 free throws attempted per game through the six-game series.
Wade was also a huge factor in last season's playoff run, as he and Udonis Haslem are the sole Heat players with two championship rings.
From a career perspective, Wade leads the team in just about every category. Whether it's games played, free throws or field goals, the shooting guard is there.
Specifically, he is fifth in rebounding and first in points, assists and steals. He leads second-place Alonzo Mourning in scoring by a little under 6,500 points and will increase his lead before he retires.
Depending on LeBron James' decisions down the stretch, Wade's statistical accolades may slip here and there.
Nonetheless, his nine All-Star game appearances—including being named All-Star MVP in 2010—and seven total All-NBA selections solidify Wade's place as the Heat's greatest player of all time.
As previously noted, James may lead Wade in scoring, but Wade's seat on the Heat throne will never be supplanted; not even by the King.
