Miami New Times on the Heat Draft

Our good friend from FinsNation also happens to write for the Miami New Times (and excellently, we should add). Today, he put forth a brilliant take on the Heat's Draft last night. I encourage all of you to read it.

Here's an excerpt:

"After weeks and days and hours of the gut-wrenching, edge of your seat, puke in somebody’s Cup-O-Noodles, bite your fingernails to the nub, can’t stand the suspense so I’ll just punch a random stranger in the gonads tension that Heat President Pat Riley put us through, he eventually eased all the useless anxiety and did the right thing by drafting our man Beasley. Yes, Riley had himself a serious man-crush on one OJ Mayo. But just as he almost inexplicably drafted Chris Kaman over Dwyane Wade in 2003 but ultimately made the right decision, Riley eventually came to his senses and took the right guy again last night. Why he chooses to do this to us is beyond me."

What a beautifully-crafted description of the angst we all felt, that then subsided into relief. Chris Joseph is always a delight to read, and we look forward to referencing him in the future.
