SHANE BATTIER RUMORS

Five Three-Point Shooters the Miami Heat Should Target This Offseason

The years of being able to depend on the three-point shooting of Ray Allen and Shane Battier are over for the Miami Heat.

Oh, Shane Battier.  We’ve examined previously how the former Duke star and first year analyst is a tad awkward in the broadcast booth.  His prognostication skills aren’t that much better.  Earlier this week, Battier went on CBS Sports’ Boomer & Carton and picked West Virginia to beat Kentucky.  While that might have sounded a little crazy when Battier first did it...

Shane Battier joins ESPN for keeps

We’ve heard for years that basketball people love Shane Battier. He’s articulate, a good quote, and a seemingly all around decent person around the media, which makes him obvious television material for his life after basketball.
