The Miami Heat tend to do it the right way, but they have had their moments. Can they continue to capitalize on instances of regret though, theirs and others?

The Miami Heat are a team that is built of the right stuff. From the top-down and starting with Micky Arison, then to Pat Riley on down to Erik Spoelstra, and then all the way to the end of the bench in the last man, if you are apart of this Miami Heat organization, it is because you prescribe to their notions of going about your business in a certain fashion. At least every player has at some point or long enough to secure a deal (looking at you Dion).

With these thoughts in mind though, one would think that they aren’t an organization that tends to regret much. While handing out some of the deals that they have over the past few years would certainly make the list, the former number 21 of the Heat, Dion Waiters, Tyler Johnson, perhaps Kelly Olynyk and maybe even James Johnson to boot, how many teams haven’t had a string of these at one point or another?

That is about it though. With this topic at hand, it brings us to a piece published by Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report, titled Every NBA Team’s Biggest Regret of 2019. In it, he indirectly discusses a scenario where the Miami Heat capitalized on the regret of one franchise, but then also directly discusses how they might have some of their own.
