5. Ray Allen (2012–2014)
Before joining the Heat in the summer of 2012, Wade and Ray Allen had been shooting guard rivals for many years, and faced each other for years when Allen was part of a championship-winning trio in Boston alongside Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Then Allen surprisingly signed with the Heat, disbanding Boston’s Big Three and adding to Miami’s star-studded roster. Allen, in his 17th season, proved to be one of the league’s most reliable role players and was an ideal complement to Wade and James.
It all culminated with his clutch 3-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals against the Spurs. Renowned for his exceptional shooting skills, patience, and composure in high-pressure situations, Allen saved the Heat from elimination and later helped them win their second-straight championship with a Game 7 win.
During the two seasons Allen played in Miami, he contributed 10.3 points per game and shot an impressive 39.8% from beyond the arc. Although Allen retired after the 2013-14 season, his contributions will forever be etched in the archives of Heat history.
