Russell Westbrook to the Heat?
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.
