I don't know why I felt like doing this.
Maybe because I found myself being barely able to name about 10 Heat point guards,let alone the ten best.
I needed to refresh my memory.Also,because why not?
Without further ado,my ten favorite Heat floor generals,starting with number ten,future hall of famer,Gary Payton.
Number Ten:Gary Payton
''The glove'' spent just two years with the Heat,but made his impact felt,being part of Miami's first and only championship team.
Payton averaged 7.7 points per game in his first year with the Heat and added great man to man defense and veteran leadership.Hungry for a championship ring,Payton was an integral part to the '06 team as a backup point guard.
Number Nine:Anthony Carter
Carter spent four seasons with Miami as their backup point guard and scored a total of 1,356 points as a member of the team.Carter was a game manager who never tried to do too much,but at the same time added a punch off of the bench with his driving ability.
Number Eight:Rory Sparrow
Sparrow was the Heat's first starting point guard and the second leading scorer on Miami's inaugural team,averaging 12.5 points per game.He added 5.4 assists and 1.3 steals as well.
Number Seven:Rafer Alston
Alston had two seperate stints with the Heat,averaging 6.6 points in the 09-10 campaign and 10 points and 4 assists in 2003.Alston was a streaky shooter who could get on a roll in a hurry from the perimeter.
Number Six:Eddie House
House was the ultimate backup point guard for the Heat for two stints over four seasons.House lived in the corner,and was a versatile defender in his first years with Miami.
Number Five:Mario Chalmers
Chalmers,of course the Heat's current starting point guard,averages over ten points per game as a starter.The ever improving Chalmers adds great value as a defender.
Number Four:Jason Williams
''White Chocolate'' averaged 12 points and 5 assists in Miami's championship season and averaged double digit points twice for the Heat.
Number Three:Sherman Douglas
Douglas only spent his first two seasons with the Heat,but certainly made then count.He averaged fourteen points and seven assists as a rookie and eighteen points and eight assists as a sophomore.Douglas was traded to Boston before his third pro season after turning down a contract from the Heat that would have made him the third highest point guard in the NBA behind Isiah Thomas and Magic Johnson.
Number Two:Bimbo Coles
Coles averaged double digit points in four seperate seasons for Miami,before being traded to Golden State for the number one point guard on this list.
Number One:Tim Hardaway
Hardaway averaged nineteen points and eight assists in his first three seasons on the Heat and made two all star teams as well as being a first team all NBA member during his Miami tenure.
Random lists are kind of fun to make.Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
