The Miami Heat is an American professional basketball team based in Miami, Florida. The Heat competes in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Southeast Division. The Heat plays their home games at American Airlines Arena, and have won three NBA championships. The team owner is Micky Arison, who also owns cruise-ship giant Carnival Corporation. The head coach is Erik Spoelstra. The Heat have reached the NBA Finals five times, in 2006, 2012, and 2013, winning the title in 2006, 2012, and 2013. Four former Heat players have been inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, including Alonzo Mourning, Shaquille O'Neal, and Tim Hardaway. The franchise began to play in 1988 as an expansion team. After a period of mediocrity, the Heat would gain relevance during the 1990s following the appointment of former head coach Pat Riley in 1995, who would lead Miami to eight division titles and their first appearance in the NBA Finals in franchise history in 2006. Riley retired as head coach following the 2010–11 season but remained as team president. The franchise would enter another period of decline for the better part of the next decade, before acquiring All-Star center Alonzo Mourning and point guard Tim Hardaway in 1995–96. Following that, the team made five consecutive trips to the Eastern Conference Finals, peaking with a loss to the Chicago Bulls in the 1998 NBA Finals. After losing in the Conference Finals for the second time in three years, Riley rebuilt by adding Shaquille O'Neal through free agency in 2004. The Heat continued to improve following Olajuwon's retirement, reaching the Eastern Conference Finals for a fourth consecutive year. In 2006, Wade led Miami to their first NBA Championship, beating the Mavericks in six games. The following year, the Heat defeated the defending Eastern Conference champion Detroit Pistons in five games during the Conference Finals, before losing to the Dallas Mavericks in six games during the NBA Finals. In 2008, after another failed attempt to land a second-star player to pair with Wade, Riley instead opted to rebuild by trading away all of the team's starters except for Wade and acquiring young players and draft picks. The team went on to win the next two NBA Championships, in 2012 and 2013, led by the big three of Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh. After James' departure in 2014, the Heat entered a rebuilding period. Wade was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls in 2016, Bosh missed the entire 2016–17 season due to blood clots, and James signed with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018. The franchise's future was further clouded in 2020 when Arison announced his intention to sell the team. Basketball fans, rejoice! We offer the most affordable sports tickets!
