This was Dwyane Wade's final season, after playing 16 years in the NBA.[1] Considered by many Heat fans to be the best player in franchise history, Wade led the team to its first championship title in 2006, as well as back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013. He also led the team to 11 playoff appearances, 1 Conference Finals (2005), and NBA Finals appearances in 2011 and 2014. Including his honorary All-Star spot this season, Wade has 13 total NBA All-Star Game appearances to his name.

On March 26, 2019, the Heat retired Chris Bosh's jersey prior to their game versus the Orlando Magic.[2]

The Heat were eliminated from playoff contention on April 9th, when the Pistons defeated the Grizzlies.

Draft picksEdit

The Heat did not have a pick in the 2018 NBA draft, with their selections having been traded to the Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies (later Houston Rockets), respectively.
