And although the first five seasons they still did not have significant achievements, already in 1992 they made their way into the playoffs.

By 1994, the roster was shaken up - Kevin Willis and Glen Rice, who became the most powerful duet of the league, came to replace centering Roni Seikali and defender Steve Smith. Two years later, the club made another right choice - called Pat Riley to train players. For the season 1996/97 Miami Heat won 61 victories. Coach Riley is recognized in many publications as the best coach of the season.

In subsequent years, the team began to experience difficult times: it moved to a new arena, repeatedly went into the playoffs and often lost and lost Pat Riley there. And then there was 2006.

Riley returned, brought with him promising newcomers and won the 2006 season. It was 4-2 in a standoff with the Dallas Mavericks. It was a triumph and peak of the club’s development.

In 2008, the coach got into the Basketball Hall of Fame for his merits. Later, he finally resigned and gave the coaching position to Eric Spoelstre, while he himself became president of the team and general manager.

In 2012 and 2013, the Miami Heath team became the champion of two seasons in a row.

Wade is known for the NBA Championship in 2006 after a monumental effort, where he averaged 35 points in the series. According to statistics, this is the greatest individual result in basketball. By the time he was 24, Wade was already the face of the NBA franchise.

Over the past few years, Wade has become the undisputed leader of Heat on points, assists, steals and free throws. He also holds the record points in the playoffs against the Boston Celtics in 2010.

LeBron set a goal to improve every offseason and eliminate any weakness that could be used by the enemy. As a result, his game has become more refined, and the results are higher than ever.

Shaquille O'Neill

It is impossible to deny how important the role played by Shaquille O'Neill for Miami Heat from 2004 to 2006. On average, he scored at least 20 points per game before becoming Wade's buddy and letting him take the reins on the way to the championship.

Even when the ball was not in his hands, the presence of O'Neill continued to play a key role for the team, whose confidence flew up.

Unfortunately, after an injury to his left knee, O'Neill missed 35 games, and when he returned, it became much worse to play. In the middle of the 2007-2008 season, he fell out with the coach and eventually dropped out of the team.
