Is Miami Just a Front-running Town?

NBA365 Productions@@BR_NBASenior Writer IIJune 6, 2013

The Miami Dolphins used to rule South Beach and the city of Miami.

Those days are long over.

The Dolphins haven't won a playoff game in over a decade while the Heat are currently the hottest team in town and considered to be one of the best sports franchises worldwide. This year marks the third consecutive season the Big Three—LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh—will be playing in the NBA Finals in quest for another championship ring.

Bleacher Report caught up with longtime Florida-based sports journalists Dan Le Batard and Ethan Skolnick to see how much the city of Miami has changed from an NFL Dolphin-loving area to a strictly NBA Heat territory. 

Let us know in the comments below what you think of this transition and what the team of Miami has done for the game of basketball and the city of Miami.
