Shane Battier Tweets He’s Joining LeBron James, Dwyane Wade & Chris Bosh On The Heat

NBA training camps and free agency officially kicks off tomorrow but that hasn’t stopped rumors and confirmations from flooding my Twitter timeline. First up, Memphis Grizzlies free agent Shane Battier announced on Twitter this morning that he is taking his talents to South Beach (yeah, I know overused phrase)

The Lockout gave me a lots of time to consider what was important to me at this stage of my life and career. Over the last week, I’ve played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role. I am appreciative of all the kind words and recruiting pitches over the last week, thank you!!

This was a exciting process and after much deliberation, I would like to quote the great poet Jimmy Buffett and take my chances “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season”

Does this mean the Heat will use LeBron more at the pg position? Chris Bosh bulked up by about 10 to 15 pounds in the off season, that means he’s stronger in the post, will these two see time on the court together down low?

The Heat are also said to be adding Eddy Curry to the equation as well. If you know Pat Riley it means A. Eddy is in shape, Riley doesn’t play that and B. Eddy is taking a significant cut to get on board. I cannot WAIT to see what unfolds!
