“He’s not [coming back to Miami]. But the fact when ESPN polled 48 players about what they thought might happen with LeBron that they even mentioned the Heat shows that, at worst, the Heat remain relevant in players’ consciousness,” Winderman wrote. “Basically, the NBA players polled still consider the Heat a desirable landing spot. And that is a good thing. But I cannot fathom, as you pointed out, the Heat having enough on their roster to attract such a level of free agent. There was a time when I thought Hassan Whiteside could have been such a lure, but with his role minimized, I don’t see that as the case anymore.”
Three-time NBA champ and NBA agent B.J. Armstrong joined John Dickinson, Matt Steinmetz and Daryle “The Guru” Johnson on 95.7 The Game on Tuesday to discuss an assortment of hoops topics, including the technical foul trouble plaguing one of his most famous clients, one Draymond Green. Asked if he ever talks to the Warriors star about his 14 techs, Armstrong laughed, then launched into a detailed explanation about how he handles the situation. “That’s a fine line,” Armstrong began. “Well, the one thing you have to remember with Draymond — and there’s been a lot of players who play with this type of passion for the game — there’s a fine line between having passion and then toning it down and trying to utilize your reason and logic.” “I think what makes Draymond such a wonderful player is he plays the game from his heart. And when you know him, and you guys cover him and you see him, there’s no doubt that he is playing all out on every possession.”
Simmons called Fultz “an amazing young player” and admitted he hates guarding him in practice because of his impressive ability to attack the basket. Ben Simmons: It’s tough. The position he’s in. He’s so young coming into the NBA and then obviously having this injury. But he’s in a good position where he’s staying focused and working hard. I see him everyday in there trying to get back to where he was and he’s going to do that. It could be physical. It could be mental. I’m not too sure about the details, but I know he’s working hard every day. You see him trying to push back, but on the floor, even in practice, you can see he’s an amazing young player. I hate guarding him. He’s so good getting to the rim.
