About Miami Heat
The franchise was founded in 1988 and despite its fairly young age the Heat has managed to accomplish quite a lot winning three NBA titles, appearing in five NBA finals and claiming 11 division’s championships, including seven in the current one which is Southeast Division in Eastern Conference and where Miami Heat leads with division wins by a large margin.
The franchise also holds the second longest streak of 27 winning games in a row, a feat they accomplished in 2013. Miami Heat’s colours are red, yellow, black and white and the team’s mascot is a rough anthropomorphic depiction of the fireball featured on the team’s logo.
The team’s head coach is Erik Spoelstra who has been associated with the franchise since 1997 and became head coach in 2008, leading the team to two NBA championships in 2012-13 and assisting in the team’s first NBA championship they claimed in 2006 when they were coached by legendary Pat Riley who is currently the team’s president and who won NBA championship as a player himself in 1972 playing for the Lakers.
Miami Heat has a reliable trio that’s been featured frequently and have been contributing to the team’s success regularly. First to mention is Dwyane Wade who has spent all of his NBA career with the franchise. The shooting guard contributed to the Heat’s three titles, he was named NBA finals MVP in 2006, and he was selected to 11 NBA All-Star games, all-time leading scorer for the Heat who also led the NBA in scoring in 2009. With plenty of experience and obviously skill he’s one to watch.
Chris Bosh who joined the team in 2010 has seen his career flourish in Miami. Ten times NBA All-Star power forward/center won two championships with the team as well as claimed three NBA Shooting Stars tournaments championships all in last three years. Well rounded player with plenty of experience is always a valuable asset for any team.
The duo is well complimented by a fairly recent addition of a small forward Loul Deng who spent most of his career in Chicago before moving to Miami in 2014, the two NBA All-Star, NBA All-Defensive Second team player in 2012 will be pursuing his first championship ring and hopefully his experience and players “smarts” fulfil the team’s need at that position.
