Miami Heat Takes Another Star Player From Cleveland, Norris Cole

Miami Heat entered Thursday’s night draft with a glaring need at Power Forward/Center and Point Guard position.  All signs pointed to the Heat looking at Point Guard given the late round depth at that position compared to very few power players available.
The Heat owned the 31st pick but acquired the 28th pick from Minnesota via trade and used the pick to draft Norris Cole; a 6’2″ 175lbs Point Guard from Cleveland State.  Yeah that’s right CLEVELAND State.  The pick itself can be observed from many different angles.
*Miami sticks to the Cleveland again, first LeBron now taking another Ohio native from Cleveland.
*What if Norris Cole was a diehard Cleveland Cavaliers fan, now force to join forces with the Three Kings of South Beach.
Or my favorite……..
*What if LeBron knew about him and pointed him out to Riley, knowing he would be a good fit.
Probably none of the above; but I curious to see how he is treated by the city of Cleveland, especially anyone from Cleveland State University.  Cole was voted one of the 2011 Most Interesting People by ClevelandMagazine.com
By the way Cole is athletic and based on his numbers; 20points 5rebounds 5assist 2steals per game average his well rounded game and “flat top” haircut should find a home with the Heat, especially when its time to guard Rajon Rondo or Derrick Rose.

  5. I think this is a dumb move for the Heat. They got what they needed in the draft intially in a big man then they go around and trade him for a point guard? The point guard is not the glaring weakness for the Heat. They have a good guard in Mario Chalmers who should resign and possible Mike Bibby as well.

    They need a big man. A guy who can go and get inside baskets when their outside shots are not falling. That’s what the Heat should focus on.

    He’s no Mouse McFadden. I saw one “expert” say he will supplant chalmers eventually cause of his d. We shall see

  7. Megan says:

    I think this was another display of bad decision making by the Miami front office. To trade up to a guaranteed contract for a guy they would have gotten with their original pick was mind blowing. Not only do they not know if they will have any money next year with a new collective bargaining agreement, but an added 3 mil in cap space means they will possibly have to trade one of their “big three” just to have money to fill their bench. Nothing against the kid, but he wasn’t worth it in the long run.

  8. hello how are you miku meaning
