 "Four Years of Heat" is an 8-episode limited series narrative podcast written and hosted by South Florida native, Israel Gutierrez. The show dives deep into the behind-the-scenes story of what happened during the four years LeBron James spent with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. It chronicles the inside stories of “The Decision,” the loss to the Mavericks in the 2011 Finals, the back-to-back titles in 2012-13, and LeBron’s choice to go “Home” to Cleveland in 2014. The release coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the Heat's epic 2013 NBA Finals win over the Spurs and Ray Allen’s amazing Game 6 tying shot. Israel recounts his own first-hand experiences covering the team, gathering interesting perspective from players, coaches, and journalists in and around the Heat at the time.  "Four Years of Heat" includes exclusive interviews with Miami Heat Super Fan DJ Khaled, Miami sports media legend, Dan Le Batard, three-time NBA Champion Udonis Haslem, Basketball Hall of Famer Ray Allen, and two-time NBA Champion Shane Battier, as well as veteran sports journalists Jim Gray, Rachel Nichols and Jackie McMullan.
