Shane Battier Tweets He Is Joining Miami Heat

One hour ago Shane Battier tweeted “Let’s Go #Heat!!!!!”

Assuming this means that Battier will be joining LeBron, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in Miami, it’s a great move for the Heat.

Understand that I am a diehard Dukie. So maybe I overvalue Battier.

Or maybe you all undervalue him.

Think about it. He is a lockdown defender, doesn’t need the ball a lot, and is a hustle guy. He also has a great post game that he can use to create matchup problems.

Isn’t that exactly what the Miami Heat need? A guy who doesn’t need the ball, will work hard and is a decent shooter? Battier adds serious toughness to the Heat and I LOVE the move for him.

I’m not saying because the Heat have Battier they are now a lock to win the NBA title, but they are heading in the right direction.

Thoughts? Musings?

    It was a great move up until the Laker trade…hopefully it doesnt go through so the Heat will have a chance. They still need a center though. Eddie Curry isnt the answer. Good add tho.
