Glen Rice put up great personal numbers. His problem is the pre-Riley HEAT were not that good. Think losing records. I think they did manage 42-40 once and with no success in the post-season obviously... unless getting bounced in the first round is considered success.
Part of being a great player is elevating your team.
But if you place the emphasis more on personal stats rather than making a run in the playoffs... a great choice.
...and Shaq's problem is in his 3rd year... after helping DWade win a title... he turned into an albatross around the team's neck.
