The Miami Heat, a young franchise (36 years) in the NBA's 77-year history, have had 40 different All-Star selections, making them home to some of the greatest basketball players of all time. These pantheon giants have produced some of the sport's most impressive seasons, culminating into numerous All-Star selections. As the All-Star game will be played tonight, let's look at the four greatest All-Stars in Miami Heat history.

2005 Shaquille O'Neal

22.9 PPG, 10.4 RPG, 2.8 BPG

The first year is always the sweetest. Well, that's not true because the Heat actually won their first championship during Shaq's 2nd season in Miami, but he was the runner-up for MVP in 2005. It is one of the best Heat seasons to this day, landing him in the Mount Rushmore for Heat All-Stars. 

Shaq was King Kong amongst civilians. He would not be denied in the paint. He averaged 17.3 points in the paint, three more than 2nd place Amar'e Stoudemire (2016 Heat player). 

Shaq almost led the Heat to the Finals this season, but their run was cut short after another player on this list was slowed down due to injury.
