Big 3 dreams in Miami
Just in case you weren’t aware, The Miami Heat are in win-now behavior. As Pat Riley told Jimmy Butler after they dealt with the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs, he living and “making his dream.”
Beating Milwaukee helped the Heats future
Beating Milwaukee showed Giannis Antetokoumpo what the Miami culture is all about. Here is a notion from Dan Le Batard that demonstrates that point.
This is what Le Batard announced on his last appearance with Rich Eisen on his radio show. If you fast forward to the 10-minute time frame, it’s where it gets good.
”When they got Jimmy Butler, the plan was to get somebody better than Jimmy Butler to be the top end of this team,” Le Batard said of the Heat. “Everything that happened in the playoffs, even though it ended with them finishing second place, they needed all of that to happen to shake Milwaukee’s core in what they’re doing and to show Giannis, ‘Well we can take you out, imagine what we can do with you here.”
The heat revealed to him that they could win against him with the current squad that included two rookies and that, Antetokoumpo won’t be able to win against them anyway, so he may have to join them and come down to the south beach.
More recent rumors
More rumors also came from IHeart Radio, by way of Ashley Nicole, a “Sports Television/Radio Host,” according to her Twitter. We aren’t reducing or debunking her credentials as she appears to be legitimate; however, we are just doing our due diligence to affirm the heritage of the reports entirely.
The tweet stated: ” Giannis splits his offseason between Greece and Miami. Per sources, he’s prepared to sign a long-term deal in Miami. The #Bucks are unwilling to end up with nothing by letting him hit free agency in 2021. a contract is expected before then”.
