7. Mike Miller (2010-13)
Days after LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh announced that they would be teaming up with the Miami Heat, Mike Miller was also signed by the team to a five-year deal. After 11 seasons in the league, in which he played a more prominent role for a few teams, Miller was ready and willing to take more of a backseat, supporting role for the Heat’s Big 3. While he may not have filled up the stat sheet too often, Miller was one of the more important supporting players on the team.
During his second season, specifically, with the Heat, Miller would go on to average six points per game on 45 percent shooting from 3-point range. The one moment that will live forever in the minds of Heat fans is when he scored 23 points (going 7-8 from 3-point range) in the championship-clinching Game 5 in the 2012 NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Miller would go on to win two championships with Miami.
Despite the team success he enjoyed as a member of the Heat, his ending with the team was quite sad. After winning their second-straight NBA Championship, the Heat decided to waive Miller via the Amnesty Clause. It was a decision that wasn’t popular with LeBron James, who would end up leaving the Heat himself the following offseason.
