The Miami Heat are again one of the most dominant teams in the NBA but we’ve come to expect that out of them. But like a champion body builder — or Heidi Montag — the Heat are never satisfied with their appearance and are always looking to get better in any way they can. According to NBA reporter Mitch Lawrence, one of the ways the Heat could look to get better is by acquiring Jordan Crawford from the Boston Celtics.
Miami is looking to deal for a young wing player who can score and take some of the load off Dwyane Wade. A few GMs have identified Boston’s Jordan Crawford as a player the Heat will go after in the coming days/weeks.
The Heat aren’t a young team despite boasting some nice young talent like Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. Adding Crawford would indeed take pressure off of Dwyane Wade but more importantly would add excellent depth for a deep postseason run.
Like the Indianapolis Colts of the 2000s, the Heat play the regular season because they have to; it’s a formality at this point. The real Heat season starts in April and goes through June and that’s what the team is building for. Making a move for Crawford makes a ton of sense, but the only question is would the Celtics go for it or do they still harbor ill-will towards the Heat?
