Just sign the contract.

No need for the for the Freudian quotes.  Here is what Battier had to say.

The Lockout gave me a lots of time to consider what was important to me at this stage of my life and career. Over the last week, I’ve played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role. I am appreciative of all the kind words and recruiting pitches over the last week, thank you!!

This was a exciting process and after much deliberation, I would like to quote the great poet Jimmy Buffett and take my chances “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season”

From a basketball perspective you need Battier type players on your team, so regardless of the silly quote he is definitely an upgrade to their roster.


Much like everybody who joined the nWo after Hollywood Hogan, this was possibly the worst kept secret in sports. We reported the fact that he would be joining the Heat back in July Shane Battier Thinks Miami is a Great City
