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.
