Russell Westbrook to the Heat?

Russell Westbrook to the Heat?

Yes please.

I’ve heard from some Heat fans on Twitter over the past few days that Russ to Miami would not be a good move.

My reaction: Um, what?

Westbrook averaged a triple-double each season the past three years.

Last year the Miami Heat had two triple doubles. That was for the entire season.

Not only is Westbrook a former league MVP, but he would make Heat basketball relevant again.

That acquisition of Jimmy Butler was a fantastic move by Pat Riley. With that move alone, Riley made the Heat a playoff team for 2019-2020.

No matter who the Heat would have to give up, besides Butler of course, Miami would not only be a playoff team, but they’d be a realistic contender to head to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Oh, and Pat Riley still has it.
