Doesn't matter if he is a rookie, came here via trade, free agency or the D-League... of the many new faces who weren't on the Heat last season, who was the best addition? I have a feeling it'll come down to the first two but they are all there anyway.

Coach Erik Spoelstra has already expressed how he feels about the next one. He thinks Hassan Whiteside is the NBA DPOY this season. But, just for fun...

There were only two rookies on the Heat this season and both are at least 3 years older than Justise Winslow - the 24-year-old Okaro White and the 25-year-old Rodney McGruder.

Not an award but it is an interesting question. The Heat have had some bad luck with injuries this season. Besides the obvious one in Chris Bosh, which one was the most detrimental to the team?
