3. Jordan isnt the only non-Heat player with a number retired by Miami. Also in the rafters is basketball luminary Dan Marino? Fear not, 13ers; as Mike Miller proves, that number is still available for wear. And as Miller proves, that number still hasnt won a championship in Miami (unless you count Bob Natal).
4. Coaches get their numbers retired too, such as the Nuggets Doug Moe (432, for 432 wins). Upon learning this, Metta World Peace said, Aw man! What am I gonna wear if I sign with Denver!?
5. More Heat fun: At the 2009 ceremony honoring Alonzo Mourning, 1) the banner lifted to the rafters was so big even LeBron James could hit it with a ball in the fourth quarter (obligatory LeBron joke!), and 2) the ceremony took so long (reportedly 43 minutes) that opposing coach Stan Van Gundy — who has some history with the Heat — jokingly pointed out that, the previous week, the Knicks took less time to honor seven people, including Patrick Ewing and Walt Frazier. But hey, its Miami. The party runs long
on across the causeway from South Beach.
