About Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Miami Heat
Some thought a rivalry between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Miami Heat may develop at the end of the 2000s because of the whole LeBron James saga, but it never really took off. The reason for this is simple. The Cavs were not at the level of the Heat back then. While the Heat were one of NBA’s top teams at the time, the Cavaliers were struggling. And now that the Cavaliers are flying high, the Heat have faltered in comparison.
These two franchises still have a history between them and it revolves around one athlete - LeBron James.
The Decision - LeBron James began his career with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 and remained a part of the franchise for eight years. In 2010, he became a free agent and as a result many teams began courting him. No one knew what he was going to do next. Then on July 8, 2010, he went on ESPN’s show The Decision and announced that he will be joining the Miami Heat. Cavs fans and owners felt betrayed and a lot of LeBron jerseys were burned as a protest.
Dan Gilbert, the Cavaliers owner penned down an open letter to the fans and promised that the Cavs would win the NBA Championship before LeBron wins one in Miami. It did not pan out that way however because with LeBron in their ranks, the Heat clinched back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013.
The Return of the Prodigal Son - Having won two NBA Championships in Miami, LeBron James then decided to return home. On July 11, 2014, while dictating an article for Sports Illustrated, LeBron announced that he had decided to return to the Cavaliers. The news stunned the basketball fraternity and the Cavaliers fans were over the moon. He has led the Cavaliers to three division and conference titles each since then. But most importantly, the Cavaliers also won the NBA Championship in 2016 with LeBron in their ranks. Interestingly enough, the Heat haven’t been the force they were since LeBron James left them.

The Cavaliers-Heat Legends
When talking about the Cleveland Cavaliers, it is impossible to look past LeBron James who has led them to their solitary NBA Championship.

Brad Daugherty spent his entire career with the Cleveland Cavaliers and during a stellar career, he earned five NBA All-Star selections and his number 43 has also been retired by the franchise.
The Miami Heat also had some incredibly talented athletes represent them. At the top of the list is Dwyane Wade who won three NBA Championships with the Heat and was also a twelve time NBA All-Star as a Miami Heat player. Then there was LeBron James who became the catalyst for the Heat’s two NBA Championships in 2012 and 2013. Last but not least, there was the great Alonzo Mourning. The Center/Power Forward won the NBA title with the Heat in 2006 and earned four All-Star selections with the franchise. His number 33 has been retired by the Miami Heat.
