Miami Heat Parking Passes

Miami Heat Parking Passes

The Miami Heat: Hot Basketball in Southern Florida

There's some real heat in Miami, and it's not just the weather. It's also the Heat themselves — Miami's all-star basketball franchise. Want to see some outstanding basketball played in an electric environment? It's worth investing in Miami Heat parking passes and game tickets. You'll have a basketball experience that rivals the exciting nightlife in the Florida beach town.

Rivalries

In its history as a franchise, the Miami Heat has had some intense and exciting rivalries. One of the best is the Dallas Mavericks, who the Heat beat for their first NBA championship but lost to in the 2010-2011 finals. They also have a great rivalry with the Los Angeles Lakers, mostly due to the fact that Shaquille O'Neal (on the Heat) and Kobe Bryant (on the Lakers) had a beef between them. O'Neal had been traded to the Heat after a disappointing season with the Lakers.

Team

Talk around town this 2013-2014 season is that the Miami Heat could have a three-peat, once again clinching the title of NBA Champions. The team this year is led by several superstars - Dwyane Wade, the all-star shooting guard; Chris Bosh, the team's center; Ray Allen, the legendary shooting guard and LeBron James, arguably the hottest and most valuable NBA player today.

History

The Miami Heat came to Miami in 1988, and they were one of the first two teams in the state of Florida. While they got off to a hard start (they lost a record 17 games in a row in their first season and ended the season with a 15-67 record), the Heat didn't stay down for long. By the 1991-92 season, the team made the playoffs, and by '95-'96, they became a contender for one of the best teams in the league. In the '99-'00 season, the team moved into a brand new arena - the American Airlines Arena, which marked a new era in the franchise's history. The Heat reached their most elite status in '04-'05, with the addition of basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal, and by 2006, the team clinched the 2006 championship. Though the team has had some bumps in the road, the franchise remains a basketball powerhouse (they won the NBA championship again in 2012), and the fans in Miami remain enthusiastic and loyal through and through.

Hall of Fame Players

The Heat has been the home of some of the best basketball players in history. However, the team has only been home to one hall of famer, Gary Payton. Payton, inducted to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013, is the only point guard to be awarded the NBA Defensive Player of the year, and was named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team nine times!

Postseason History

The Miami Heat's experience in the postseason is always intense and exciting. While the team has made the playoffs in many of its seasons, the most exciting showings for the Heat happened in the 2005-2006 season when they beat the Dallas Mavericks in the championship game. In the two most recent seasons, 2011-12 and 2012-13, they won the championship against the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs, respectively.

Trivia

As one of the teams to beat for the championships, it's no surprise that their shooting guard Wade holds the title of most points in the franchise, with 16,772! One of the three retired Heat numbers is none other than Michael Jordan's No. 23; even though he never played for the Heat, he was jersey was retired in 2002-2003 to honor his career. The Heat's first head coach, Ron Rothstein, stepped down in 1991, but still remains loyal to the Heat as an assistant coach.
