Goran Dragic had an amazing year, but that’s on par with what he has done since joining the Miami Heat.

He was huge for Miami going into the finals. Now, Miami fans know where I am going with this when talking about Dragic and these latest NBA Finals. Dragic, who has played with a lot of teams in his Miami tenure, with Miami trading for him at the 2015 trade deadline and just a minute later losing Chris Bosh to his blood clotting issue.

The year after, Bosh returned to an All-Star form but again the blood clots returned, sadly ending his career. The year after, the greatest Miami Heat player of all time in Dwyane Wade left Miami to go back “home”.

So, with no real vision for the team, Miami looked to be in no man’s land with the team having to sign journeymen to fill out the roster. As we all know, Miami went 11-30 in the first half of that year, before then going on a 30-11 run.

That was the season they fell just short of the postseason, just a game short of the playoffs. Dragic was dealt a bad hand in Miami, but he made the best out of it, becoming a first-time All-Star in the following season.

If we’re being honest, he was apart of the Dallas Maverick’s trade last offseason but thankfully in the last-minute, Dallas pulled out of the trade. With all that being said, Dragic finally made the NBA Finals for the first time in his career this season.

It was finally happening after all he has endured. This was Dragic time to shine and with 4:31 remaining on the clock in the second quarter of Game 1…Dragic tore his left plantar fascia.

All of Heat Nation’s hearts broke when the news got out that he was probably out for the Finals. Dragic was on the sideline’s cheering on his team and being the best teammate he could be.

In Game 6, Dragic somehow returned and did his best out there but clearly and apparently remained in pain. It is for all of this that this is his season grade.


We couldn’t have asked for anything more during the regular year, the playoffs, and even in the Finals, as he had a blown wheel. Without Dragic and his offensive production, the Los Angeles Lakers were just too much for Miami in the end.

Here is his superlative for the year.

Most Likely To still Put Up 30 points with a broken bone and a missing tooth

Dragic had one of his best seasons for Miami this year, although it was two years ago where he made the All-Star team. Miami needs to resign Dragic in the offseason to a big one year deal and re-up Dragic the next offseason so he can retire as a member of the Miami Heat.
