NBA: All-Time Starting 5 of the Miami Heat
- Here are the five players who made it into the Miami Heat's all-time starting five.
Forward – Chris Bosh
One of the prized acquisition of the Heat in 2010, Chris Bosh joined forces with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. With Bosh as the third option, the Heat would go on to make four NBA Finals appearances, winning two NBA championships in 2012 and 2013.
When James left Miami in 2014, Bosh became the second option behind Wade and he was a six-time All-Star with the Heat. He ranks fifth in scoring, seventh in rebounds and blocks in the team’s all-time leaderboard. However, he was released in 2017 after a career-ending blood clot issue. Bosh remains hopeful he can return to the NBA and has not announced his retirement just yet.
Honorable Mention: Forward – Udonis Haslem
An undrafted player, Udonis Haslem has cemented himself as one of the true greats of the Heat franchise. He was a key role player in three NBA championship teams in 2006, 2012, and 2013. Haslem ranks seventh in the all-time Heat scoring list, first in rebounds, and ninth in steals. His No. 40 jersey will surely get retired by his hometown team.
