The Miami Heat are looking for help at guard, but Norris Cole is trying to prove his case that he’s the point guard of the future for the Heat. He’s been doing a fine job of that and he gave Heat fans another reason to like him on Friday night.
Cole managed to break some ankles on his way to an assist against the 76ers, but the worst offense was when he faked Sixers guard Tony Wroten out of his own skin. Imagine the following play as an old Warner Bros. cartoon where our hero Norris Cole fakes the pesky Wroten so hard that his skeleton continues after him but his skin and jersey do not — Tweety Bird on Sylvester style.
Cole has been faked out himself pretty badly before, so it’s clear that he’s learning from his own failures when it comes to embarrassing his defender.
