A 2013 Miami Heat Roster

2013 Miami Heat Roster

This year’s Miami Heat have a ton of talent on their roster yet they have the worst record in the league. While a lot of their games started poorly, fans never stopped hoping for the best. In other words, the Heat's season was NOT a total write off, it just didn't pan out the way some would have liked.



SIX AND SEVEN over 30 points: LeBron James scored 32 points in Game Six of the NBA Finals on June 18, 2013 and then made 37 points in Game Seven on June 20, 2013. According to Elias Sports Bureau, he became the first player in NBA history to score consecutive 30-point games to help rally his team from a 3–2 series deficit to win an NBA title.:GAME SEVEN over 30 Points: LeBron James finished the 2013 postseason by recording his fourth-straight 30-point Game Seven by scoring 37 points vs. SA in the NBA Finals. He had previously scored 32 points vs. IND on June 3, 2013, 31 points vs. BOS on June 9, 2012 and 45 points at BOS on May 18, 2008. The Elias Sports Bureau reports he has tied the record of the only other player to score at least 30 points in four consecutive Game Seven's, Elgin Baylor (33 at STL on 3/26/60, 39 at STL on 4/1/61, 41 at BOS on 4/18/62, 35 vs. STL on 4/11/63 & 33 vs. STL on 4/15/66).Team Leader in Points, Rebounds, and Assists: LeBron James’ 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists vs. SA on June 6, 2013 was the 28th time he has led his team outright (no ties) in each of those categories during the playoffs, the most in NBA postseason history. In addition, he has been the outright game-high leader (no ties) in each of those categories eight times, also the most in NBA postseason history. His eight such games are more than the combined total of the next three players to achieve the feat.

The 2013–2014 season was the Heat's fourth and final season playing with the "Big Three" of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh, and ended with a 54–28 record, despite a 43–14 record early in March. It was the lowest record (.659) in the Big Three era (with the exception of the 2011-12 NBA season, which was a shortened season due to a lockout). It was also their sixth season under head coach Erik Spoelstra and Ray Allen's last season in the NBA after 18 years in the league. Although he was a free agent during the 2014–15 and 2015–16 seasons, and despite rumors of a possible return to the league to play for the Milwaukee Bucks, Golden State Warriors, or Boston Celtics, Allen officially announced his retirement on November 1, 2016, and was one of two remaining active players from the 1996 draft, the other being Kobe Bryant, whom announced his retirement the season prior.LeBron James -- The King is in his prime, and he's shown no sign of slowing down. James will, as usual, do everything from guarding the opponent's dangerous point guard to playing as a point forward. He's a three-point shooter, facilitator and everything in between. James averaged 37.9 minutes per game, which somehow seems reasonable considering how much he stuffs the box score and how many roles he fills for Miami. (Source: www.sbnation.com)
