The Miami Heat were unable to win a third NBA title. But all the members of the Miami Heat are winners. The Big Three, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are great basketball players. They simply lost to a better team; the San Antonio Spurs led by Tim Duncan, a great basketball player. Not many people get to enjoy the level of career success that the Miami Heat players do. The Miami Heat has made four NBA Finals appearances.
