MIAMI – A Miami Heat legend is getting the ultimate recognition on a much grander scale.

Former Heat guard Tim Hardaway is going to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Hardaway spent six of his 13 NBA seasons with Miami.

He teamed up with Alonzo Mourning and, led by head coach Pat Riley, created one of the toughest, hardest working teams in the NBA.

The five-time All-Star averaged 17.7 points and 8.2 assists over his 867 games in the NBA.

The Heat retired Hardaway’s No. 10 in 2009.
