The Miami Heat have a lot of work to do this off-season, but they took a moment to welcome Shabazz Napier into the fold. He was formally introduced to Heat fans in Miami at a press conference on Monday.
Here are some highlights:.
“I’ve been playing basketball since I was 5 ½. Of course, each level it gets tougher and tougher. You have to expect that. You’ve got to prepare yourself for those opportunities at hand. I’m not nervous at all. I’m definitely excited to get it going. … [There will] be games where I’m the man and it’s going to be games where I’m not the man. That’s how it was in college. You have to understand it’s what the game asks of you that day. If that day it was my job to get 12 rebounds, so be it.”
