STU to induct Miami Heat General Manager Andy Elisburg in Hall of Fame

Andy Elisburg, senior vice president of basketball operations and general manager of the Miami Heat, will be inducted into St. Thomas University Bobcat Sports Hall of Fame.

The honor will be bestowed upon Elisburg at 6 p.m., Sunday, November 5, during the college’s popular Stone Crab Dinner at the Fernandez Family Center for Leadership and Wellness.

Elisburg, who served as a student manager for the Bobcat men’s basketball team, joined the Heat franchise during its inaugural season in 1988, while completing an internship to fulfill his graduation requirements towards his St. Thomas University sports administration degree.

He has remained with the Heat organization ever since and has been a true Bobcat “Leader for Life,” as he continues to mentor student-athletes through his philanthropic donations to the TOTAL Student Success program.

Elisburg has been part of the Miami Heat for most of the team’s top draft picks, free agents signings and championship teams.

Elisburg was there for the Heat’s first-ever draft pick, Rony Seikaly, from Syracuse; traded for Alonzo Mourning and Shaquille O’ Neal; drafted Dwayne Wade; and perhaps the franchise’s biggest free agent signing, LeBron James, in 2010.
The Heat won three NBA World Championships.
