ESPN recently began unveiling its list of top 100 players in the NBA.
Five Miami Heat players have ended up on the prestigious board.

Butler, 31, is the franchise’s alpha. The veteran led the Heat all the way to the 2020 NBA Finals.
During the 2020 NBA Finals versus the overpowered Los Angeles Lakers, Butler collected 26.2 points, 9.8 assists, 8.3 boards and 2.2 steals per game.
He also conducted one of the best NBA Finals games in league history in Game 3 of the series. He finished that game with 40 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds, two blocks and two steals.
Adebayo, 23, is the emerging face of the franchise. The Heat recently locked the All-Star into a mammoth contract for the next few years.
Last season, Adebayo averaged career-highs of 15.9 points, 10.2 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
Dragic, who re-signed with the Heat this past offseason, is a fan favorite in Miami. He was a strong part of the Heat’s run to the NBA Finals.
Of course, the Heat experienced much success last season due to scoring explosions from Herro and Robinson. Both sharpshooters showed the world they are among the top snipers in the NBA.
The fact that the Heat have five players on the list is a clear indication of just how talented and deep they are. Surely, every player will look to rank even higher by this time next year.
