7 great things from the Miami Heat season.

The Miami Heat The season is over over the weekend and is about to The NBA FinalsAnd after the Heat’s exit interviews, let’s take a look at 7 cool things from the Heat’s season.

#1 – Victor Oladipo returns and contributes
It wasn’t until March that it wasn’t smooth sailing, but in the end Oladipo found his way into the spin and was an important part of what the Heat did in the playoffs. Oladipo finished the regular season by 40 points against Orlando Magic. But he started the playoffs from the rotation.

Once he came back with Jimmy Butler injured, he didn’t leave. And Oldipo’s defense was crucial to what the Heat did. It’s not back to the way it was, but it’s getting close. He can make a break in his shot, and is not afraid to shoot. It was great to see Vic playing and feeling healthy while contributing.

#2 – Tyler Hero won Best Man in Year 6
It was one of the things I expected pre-season here on HHH, and it was clear from week one of the season that Tyler would be the best player off the bench in the NBA. He has led the Heat in scoring many times, dropping more than 30 points off the bench for the Heat records. Own the second quarter and activate the FTX Arena.

Herro has been a bright spot this season. He made the leap with an average of 20.7 PPG for Miami and he’s looking forward to having a start next year. There are great things coming for Tyler and it might include a big payday.

#3 – Max Strus and Gabe Vincent prove they belong
These guys didn’t start the season as part of a regular rotation, but they made their way there quickly. Gabe Vincent proved to be a rotating player and capable of being a sparkler for Miami. His defense keeps him in court, and the offense was present enough to make him highly valuable in all of Kyle Lowry’s absences.

Strauss moved into the starting line-up late in the season and has been very successful for Miami. He struggled in the playoffs compared to the regular season, but was a big bright spot for Miami even at the expense of Duncan Robinson. Strauss and Vincent have proven they belong in the rotation and will be very valuable assets for the Heat’s upcoming season as well.

#4 – Omer Yurtseven shows two promising skinny people
For 1 month (December 17 – Jan 15) Omar had a tear for the Heat due to injuries to the Heat’s front court. Omar was hugely pick-and-roll and was a bouncing beast. He’s shown so many promises, he’s even made opposing coaches mad at the Heat, so it’s easy to have great quality hidden on the bench.

Omar struggled defensively but showed great promise on the other end of the floor to be an asset to the Heat.

#5 – Jimmy Butler Playoff is a real thing in Miami
What more do we want? Jimmy back. He had one of the greatest playoffs in Heat history by winning 47 points in Game Six in Boston. He’s really had a great post-season at the age of 32 and has shown everyone that he’s up his game when it counts.

And that’s important for HIT going forward. Knowing that when NBA playoffs Get started, your best player will get better.

#6 – PJ Tucker belongs to Miami and was better than advertised
We knew it was spelled Heat Culture, but Tucker fit the Heat menu better than expected. It was everything you wanted in a starting console role and at $7 million, it was a bargain. At one point, he was leading the NBA by three percentage points.

It would be great to return it.

#7 – Caleb Martin: Another Successful Miami Road
It was great to see Heat hit gold again in a two-way contract. Previously it was Gabe Vincent and Max Strauss, now Martin has joined that and hopefully he’ll be back. It had its ups and downs but it was a great find.
