2016 Miami Heat Schedule
LeBron James made his decision to come to Miami in 2010 -- and then made his decision to return to Cleveland in 2014. King James did deliver on his promise, though -- the Heat have gone to the NBA Finals in each of the last four years, and have won two NBA titles in that span. Now without LeBron, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat will try to win and keep the Heat among the NBA's elite teams. Check out Miami's 2015-16 schedule, and get your Heat tickets today!
Founded in 1988, the Miami Heat are still one of the newest teams playing in the NBA. Though the Heat haven't even been in existence for 30 years yet, Miami is quite accomplished, appearing in four NBA Finals, winning three. Only the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs have won the NBA Finals more often than the Heat.
Miami general manager Pat Riley has played a major role in Miami's ascension to the NBA's elite teams. Once owner Micky Arison purchased the Heat in 1995, Riley was brought in to serve as Miami's head coach in president. Riley eventually led the Heat to the 2006 NBA Finals, and guided the Heat to their first-ever NBA championship. Riley stepped down as head coach in 2008, naming Erik Spoelstra as head coach, but remained as Miami's general manager -- and helped bring LeBron James and Chris Bosh to Miami. The architect of now three NBA championship teams, Pat Riley is a revered figure in Miami.
