Miami Heat Dream Team: The Ultimate Players of All Time

With last summer’s absurd influx of talent, it’s time to revamp the all-time Miami Heat squad.

Rules are simple. To be eligible, a player must have played a full season in a Heat uniform and players chosen are based on their time in Miami. For instance, we’re not taking into account what Shaq did with the Lakers, just with the Heat.

I put this team together with the mindset of building the best possible team. It may not necessarily be the best 15 players individually, but more so a complementary group of talent with the best chance to win.

 

Starters

G Dwyane Wade: The most dynamic player in Heat history.

G Glen Rice: With Dwyane and LeBron as the primary ball handlers, the starting lineup needs the best possible shooter available and Rice was a career 40 percent shooter from downtown.

F LeBron James: The most versatile player in NBA history is a shoo-in on any all-time squad. His rings will come.

F Chris Bosh: He would improve dramatically just by playing alongside a physical beast like 'Zo.

Who should start at center for the All-Time Miami Heat team?

C Alonzo Mourning: One of the greatest defensive centers ever brings an unmatched level of toughness and heart.

 

Bench

C Shaquille O’Neal: The most dominant big man of all time as this team’s sixth man is saying something.

F Udonis Haslem: A true “glue guy” who does anything asked of him and more.

G Tim Hardaway: Brings a rare fearlessness to the game.

F Dan Majerle: The perfect role player who shoots and defends.

F P.J. Brown: Toughness and grit define Brown’s game.

G Jamal Mashburn: Another creator offensively who never quite capitalized on his talent.

G Eddie Jones: There can’t be enough shooters.

 

Inactives

F James Posey: A winner with incredible defensive versatility and a fine jumper to boot.

C Rony Seikaly: A highly-skilled big man back in his day.

C Joel Anthony: Defense. Heart. Energy.
