So far ive been looking through all the potential players that will be available around the 13th pick and these are the players that if available MIA absolutely should take.
1: BOL BOL. This is a player that i'd say that it's a higher chance that he's not available. I can see him falling anywhere between 8-14. This guys length is rediiiiculous. His 3pt shooting looks amazing and he can put the ball on the floor. He is a little skinny, i'd like to see him at around a solid 235-240 lbs. He has the skills, mobility, shooting to be a great post player. I can see him being a All-Star player potentially. Ceiling not as high but he reminds me of Kristaps.
2: Sekou Daoumboya. This guy is a complete freak of nature. Super long, super athletic, looks very strong, very young. His skills are a little shaky but i see a lot of promise. The way he is able to ball handle in transition makes me feel like he has potential as a ball handler in the half court. If he develops that skill and with his build he will certainly be a mismatch 8 out 0f 10 nights when he's on the floor. His shooting can be better but his form is definitely pretty, smooth, and high release that would be difficult to block. His form makes me feel like he will likely develope into a very consistent shooter. If he adds that ball handling and consisent shooting this guy can definetly be a star! He also helps on defense right away with the physical tools he posseses. Im definitely tired off all the project players that Pat loves to draft but this is a guy i'd take tht chance with.
3: Kevin Porter JR. This guy getting in trouble in college was one of the best things that could happen for us. This kid can play and honestly he might be a perfect fit fot the MIA Heat and now he's almost definitely gonna be available at No. 13 because of this issue they are worried about. Lol at these other teams bypassing some of the most skilled players just because some silly issue. Haha its a good thing the MIA Heat possess one of the two top cultures in the NBA. One that may even rival the San Antonio Spurs culture. The MIA Heat have taken plenty of players that have had conduct issues, locker room issues, issues buying in and they have thrived underneath the Heat culture. What stands out to me the most about Kevin Porter is his ability to create shots for himself off the bounce. Guess what, now that DWade is retired there is not one player on the Heat team capable of consistently getting their own shot when the game slows down. This is why we are so bad in close game situations. This guy could be the answer. His ball handling looks great and he posseses a great looking stepback, quick good looking release. The other thing that strands out to me is his FG pecentage and 3pt shooting percentage. A player creating off the bounce and taking high difficulty shots but is still able to post 47% from the field and 41% from three. This tells me that this skill is real and with a higher volume of shots he could be a really good scorer. Very athletic, pretty quick. If the other two players are off the board come MIA chance to pick then this guy should be the no brain answer.
These are the players i'd like to see MIA realistically obtain the most. What about you guys?
Any body else follow him on Instagram? He’s been going H.A.M. in the gym since the day after the regular season and looks to be getting in really great shape. I think Pat Riley set some clear expectations.
In particular I'd look at some of the comments on Eddie's tweet because he actually tries to justify his stance and fails miserably.
1) calls Kerr a HOF coach because he's played in the league before and been taught by some of the best but Spot was taught by Riley and that apparently doesn't count because he never played in the league (Pop has never played in the league either)
2) Says because Spo didn't immediately start out as a coach, he's not a HOFer.
3) Argues that we haven't won a playoff game since LeBron left even though we literally were a game away from the ECF in 2016 and probably would've been if Bosh and Whiteside were healthy.
Just a lot of logical fallacies in both of their arguments.
