A simple quiz to test your knowledge of your Miami Heat. Name each player from his birth state (or country) and city.

  • Florida, Miami
  • Indiana, Indianapolis
  • Maryland, Landover
  • Missouri, Kansas City
  • New York, Brooklyn
  • North Carolina, Gastonia
  • North Dakota, Grand Forks
  • Ohio, Cincinnati
  • Oklahoma, Edmond
  • Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
  • Pennsylvania, Wynnewood
  • Slovenia, Ljubljana
  • Texas, Dallas
  • Texas, Houston
  • Wyoming, Cheyenne

Descending onto 601 Biscayne Blvd., they all bought into the winning Heat culture taking their game to higher level. Here's a hint for a couple of them. This Gastonia native, with the help of his teammate from Wynnewood, might surprise everyone next season with his imitation of Kevin Durant.

Another clip shows an intense young player, from St. Louis, thumping his chest at first, and later going to the basket with a good handle. Still had the energy way back then.

Another Heat team member, originally from Maryland, played high school basketball in Washington, D.C. and in Jacksonville, Florida for Arlington County Day School, where he, “Outscored the entire Summit Christian team in the first half, 24-23, and finished with 34 points total in leading his team to an 80-41 win in the Florida 2A final.”

Lastly, who doesn’t recognize this Florida native from his high school days playing against another future NBA guard?
