    Franchise history

    The Miami Heat were founded in 1987 when the National Basketball Association expressed interest to add three new teams to the league. After being accepted into the league, the team debuted for the 1988-1989 NBA season. The Heat struggled through their early years, but finally found success in 1997 where they would win their first of four straight divisional titles. After another period of decline, the Miami Heat went on the win their first NBA title in 2006 with Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal leading the team. However, after winning the title, the team would began to struggle again and would not recover until the 2010-2011 season, where they added Lebron James and Chris Bosh to compliment Dwyane Wade (the trio became known as "The Big 3"). With their star power, the Heat would go on to win a second NBA title in 2012 after losing in the NBA finals the previous year to the Dallas Mavericks.
