305 to my City
Right now it looks like Dwyane Wade might be the only player to have a legendary career that starts and ends in Miami, but the allure of South Beach has taken the talents of NBA superstars way before Bron-Bron. Of the Seven NBA All Stars the Heat have had, only Wade started his career in Miami. Alonzo Mourning (Charlotte Hornets), Shaq (Orlando Magic), Tim Hardaway (Golden State Warriors) and Anthony Mason (drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers) all began their career's elsewhere. That’s not including Chris Bosh and LeBron who we know started respectively in Toronto and Cleveland. The Heat have also had All Star level players like Steve Smith, Eddie Jones, Caron Butler, Dan Majerle, Antoine Walker, Gary Payton and Jamal Mashburn all make the mid-season showcase while with other teams.
