Jimmy Butler nearly led the Miami Heat to the NBA Finals for the second time in three years last season. Miami ended up being the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 53-29 record, and the Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers before losing to the Boston Celtics in seven games. They are bringing back almost all of last year’s team too, so they are considered one of the favorites to win the Eastern Conference although they don’t get the same attention as Boston or Milwaukee.

We saw Jimmy Butler take his game to another level once more in the playoffs. Butler averaged 27.4 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 4.6 APG, and over two steals per game despite being banged up. He was unable to effectively stretch the floor as a perimeter shooter, but he is one of the top 10 or 12 best players in the NBA when healthy.

Bam Adebayo averaged 19.1 PPG and 10.1 RPG during the regular season. Adebayo is a double-double threat, but the Heat are hoping he can be more of a scorer in order to help take some of the pressure off of Butler. That was an issue in the postseason as Butler was relied on too much.

Veteran Kyle Lowry is still one of the best distributors in the NBA, and he averaged 13.4 PPG and 7.5 APG last season. Tyler Herro made almost 40% of his threes, and Victor Oladipo and Max Strus also made at least 41% of their threes. Three-point shooting is going to be big for this team throughout the season, as they don’t have a true power forward that can get to the basket.

The Miami Heat have had more success than any other professional sports team in south Florida. This is the one team that has been largely supported by the fickle fans of the Miami metro area, and the Heat have been very competitive over the last two decades.

Dwyane Wade is the most accomplished player in the history of the franchise. He was taken with the 5th overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, and he was a 13-time All-Star and eight-time All-NBA selection that led the Heat to their first NBA title in 2006. Veterans Shaquille O’Neal, Alonzo Mourning, Gary Payton, and Antoine Walker all played crucial roles, but it was Wade that was the superstar with franchise favorite Udonis Haslem coming into his own too.

Of course, perhaps the best thing that Wade did was convince LeBron James and Chris Bosh to come to Miami in the summer of 2010. That made the Heat the preseason favorites to win the NBA title for four straight years. They were not able to live up to the lofty expectations of King James who talked about winning seven championships during the introductory press conference, but they did win the Eastern Conference four straight times. Miami won back-to-back NBA titles in 2012 and 2013, yet the Heat needed a miracle three-pointer from Ray Allen to win the second title.

Miami wasn’t truly competitive for a few years after LeBron James left the team, but the Heat surprised everyone by winning the East in 2020. Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo proved to be an excellent combination, and Miami received solid three-point shooting from Duncan Robinson, Jae Crowder, and Tyler Herro. The Heat nearly made the NBA Finals again in 2022, but they lost to the Boston Celtics in seven games.
