It’s probably the biggest news to hit the NBA since….well, ever. This whole LeBron James thing made headlines and ended in a crushing blow for the Cleveland Cavaliers and a big win for the people lucky enough to hold Miami Heat Tickets. Pat Riley has created a juggernaut of anticipation with his off-season moves. It’s the kind of gamble that legends are made of.
In fact, you could almost say this was move akin to the Vikings signing Brett Favre, something that lifts a team above it’s head. It’s worked out well in Minnesota, hopefully Miami Heat Fans get an even better result. It certainly appears that all the pieces are in place for an NBA Championship. Obviously the talent is there, it all boils down to chemistry now, and how Pat Riley keeps everyone happy. But winning, and it certainly looks like the Miami Heat are going to do that, should take care of everything.Eric Drouant
