Since 2018, Cheap Anthony Carter Jersey has served as the player development coach for the Miami Heat. But his ties to the team go back more than two decades, when he began his NBA career with the Heat in 1999. In between, he played a role in changing the franchise’s fortunes forever.

No, Carter wasn’t a superstar in Miami like Cheap Dwyane Wade Jersey and Cheap LeBron James Jersey were. But without him, the Heat may not have three championships today.

Let’s hop back to the 2002-03 season. Carter, who was 27 years old at the time, wanted to exercise his player option to stay in Miami. Carter averaged 4.1 points while shooting an abysmal 35.6% from the field (and zero percent from three) the season before.

The option, worth $4.1 million, was an obvious choice. There was only one problem: Carter’s agent, Bill Duffy, missed the June 30 deadline to tell the Heat Carter planned to return.

Instead of getting his $4.1 million, Carter became a free agent. He signed a minimum contract with the San Antonio Spurs, worth about $750,000. On the plus side, Carter only played in five games before the Spurs waived him – a $150,000 per game salary is pretty good.

Still, Carter missed out on a bigger payday. To make things right, Duffy offered Carter $3 million from his own pocket. The two agreed to a repayment schedule, and Duffy delivered the final payment at the end of 2020.

UPDATE: Jan. 12, 5:36 p.m. — The Heat have ruled Leonard out, while Olynyk and Vincent are available. So they’ll have the required 8 players to field a team for Tuesday’s game vs. the Sixers.

The Miami Heat have placed 8 players into health and safety protocols, including Cheap Jimmy Butler Jersey Cheap Bam Adebayo Jersey and Cheap Avery Bradley Jersey. Here’s the full list of players who will be unavailable for Tuesday’s game vs. the Philadelphia 76ers courtesy of Ira Winderman:

Out for Heat for protocols:
Adebayo
Butler
Bradley
Dragic
Harkless
Haslem
Nunn

So that leaves the Heat with Cheap Tyler Herro Jersey, Cheap Precious Achiuwa Jersey, Cheap Andre Iguodala Jersey, Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey, Cheap Chris Silva Jersey and Cheap Max Strus Jersey as players who will be available. Cheap Kelly Olynyk Jersey, Cheap Meyers Leonard Jersey and Cheap Gabe Vincent Jersey are considered questionable, so two of those three would need to be available in order for this game to be played.

Meanwhile, the Sixers will be without Seth Curry (covid-19) and Ben Simmons (knee) on Monday vs. the Atlanta Hawks. Tobias Harris, Shake Milton and Matisse Thybulle are also expected to be out Monday with Joel Embiid listed as probable.

Despite the blunder, Carter has remained on good terms with Duffy, saying he understood that sometimes things happen. And Duffy is still an agent today, representing several NBA players, including Luka Doncic, Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey, and Rajon Rondo. In fact, he likely benefited from his act, with other players and coaches seeing him trying to fix things.

With Carter no longer on Miami’s books, Heat president Pat Riley suddenly had extra cap space. He used it to sign Lamar Odom away from the Los Angeles Clippers. The following season, in 2004, Odom was traded — along with Cheap Caron Butler Jersey and Cheap Brian Grant Jersey – to the Los Angeles Lakers for Shaquille O’Neal.

Two years after that trade, O’Neal and Wade led the Heat to its first championship in franchise history. And if you support the butterfly effect, James may have never signed with the Heat in 2010 if they hadn’t won a title a few years earlier.

It’s certainly an interesting hypothetical to consider. And it took almost 20 years, but Carter finally got his money.

But at least one person who spoke out was not at all appalled by the comparison. That’d be Cheap Dwyane Wade Jersey himself.

“He can be better,” Wade posted on Twitter last week. “America, here is your number 1 pick!”

Very well could happen.

He can be better. America here is your number 1 pick! Ayo @VicOladipo we’re all built from the same cloth 💪🏾 That Tom Crean cloth! https://t.co/ZTXg9VpZU7

We’ll find out Wednesday night when the NBA Draft commences at 8 p.m. from ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Conn. This year’s draft will be conducted virtually, thanks to the unrelenting coronavirus pandemic.

But while there will be no stage walk or hug from commissioner Adam Silver for Edwards, most NBA draft analysts expect Edwards to be the first player off the board. The Minnesota Timberwolves are holding that selection. If not, the 6-foot-5, 225-pound guard from Southwest Atlanta is expected to be, at the very least, a lottery pick.

Whatever happens, it’s going to be a red-letter day for Edwards and his family. But No. 1? Now that would very big deal.

Even the great Wade had to wait to No. 5.

“I don’t really care about stuff like that,” Edwards said of the prospect of being the first player drafted. “Whatever team’s willing to take the chance on me, I’m just ready to go in and give it my all.”

The Miami Heat has some offensive woes to address
As presently constituted, the Miami Heat are certainly capable of defending its Eastern Conference crown and making another run to the NBA Finals. Who it faces should it get there is another story.

The Los Angeles Lakers were a cut above Miami when the two teams last met in October and the gap grew wider over the offseason when it added two sixth man of the year candidates and Marc Gasol to an already stacked roster.

Across town, the LA Clippers possess an equally imposing roster with two superstars and a very talented supporting cast.

The task of identifying the Heat’s shortcoming as a legitimate championship contender is quite easier than would be to address it.

Whereas Miami ranks eighth in the league in team defense, it currently stands 22nd on offense.

Comparatively, the defending champion Lakers are 5th on defense and offense.

It has become a regularity when the Heat play that it will go through scoring droughts. Is the answer James Harden?

From a talent standpoint, without question Harden would immediately elevate the Heat’s overall offensive efficiency.

No single player in the league has been as devastating a scorer as Harden since, arguably, Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles in 2013.

There are two problems with adding him, though.

Any package Miami would send to Houston would need to include both rookie sensation Cheap Tyler Herro Jersey and Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey, the second most efficient 3-point shooter in the league.

Now, would a lineup featuring Cheap Jimmy Butler Jersey James Harden, and Bam Adebayo be enough to unseat the Lakers? Possibly, but it would require Miami to mortgage its foreseeable future as a result. That’s a pretty big gamble.

The second problem is the fit with Harden and the Heat seems less than ideal.

Harden is accustomed to having the ball in his hands for a majority of the shot clock, whereas Miami relies on a heavy amount of ball movement to initiate its offense.

Off the court, his reputation precedes him as a “man of the evening” who has been known to attend a strip club or two. With a burgeoning nightlife like the one South Beach has to offer, could you imagine the level of distraction the Beard would become almost immediately?

People care to make light of the whole “Heat Culture” tagline that was somewhat forced down the national audience’s throat last season in the playoffs, but if there was one thing learned from the pairing of Jimmy Butler-Miami a few summers ago, it is very much a real thing.

It takes a workhorse to thrive in the Pat Riley system.

For every Cheap Alonzo Mourning Jersey, there is a Cheap Hassan Whiteside Jersey or Cheap Jamal Mashburn Jersey who is perfectly content approaching the season in cruise control. Harden seems to fall more comfortably under that second classification of a player.

The easy solution to Miami’s offensive woes would be for Jimmy Butler to distinguish himself as a consistent and dominant go-to scorer. For whatever reason, that hasn’t been the case.

Butler will have his moments, as he did in the NBA Finals, where he can completely take over a game and elicit the type of memories that transformed South Beach once upon a time to Wade county. The following game, however, he falls back into the type of second banana role more befitting of what Philadelphia and Minnesota featured him as during his stops there.

Butler’s current scoring average to date this season is 13.8, leaving him roughly tied with Cheap Goran Dragic Jersey as the second-best option on offense to leading scorer Cheap Bam Adebayo Jersey at 18.6.

Miami has a decision to make.

With an equal blend of exceptional young and veteran talent, will the franchise maintain an eye for the future or trade-off its young assets for a player along the lines of Victor Oladipo and really swing for the championship fences?

For now, it appears unlikely the Heat will be able to have its cake and eat it too.

And, if there is one thing everyone knows about team president Pat Riley, it’s that the word patience is not in his vocabulary. It was a fork in the road moment when Miami first learned it lost Cheap LeBron James Jersey back in 2014 and Riley was left to pick up the pieces.

It was a fork in the road moment in 2001 when the team had just traded Jamal Mashburn and PJ Brown for Cheap Eddie Jones Jersey and Anthony Mason before getting sucker-punched with the news that team centerpiece Alonzo Mourning had suddenly been diagnosed with a rare life-threatening kidney disease.

Yet again, we have reached another fork in the road moment. What will Pat Riley do?

Edwards going first would be an especially big deal to the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs have never had a men’s basketball player go No. 1 in the draft. Even Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins – the “Human Highlight Film” — went third to the Utah Jazz, who promptly traded him to the Hawks.

While Georgia basketball doesn’t have the greatest of track records when it comes to on-court success, the Bulldogs have held their own over the years with the draft. They’ve had seven first-rounders, including four top-10 picks topped by Wilkins’ selection in 1982. Georgia’s other first-rounders include Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (No. 8 in 2013), Jarvis Hayes (10, 2003), Willie Anderson (10, 1998),Cheap Alec Kessler Jersey (12, 1990), Vern Fleming (18, 1984) and Jumaine Jones (27, 1999).

“He wants to be number one and I want him to be number one,” Georgia coach Tom Crean said. “But at the end of the day, the thing I want for Anthony Edwards is to be in the right environment, where he has a head coach that’s going to invest in him in a big way. … My hope (is) he gets a coaching staff that’s going to spend time with him.”

Hawks want to win, not rebuild
Edwards going No. 1 would make him first Atlanta citizen to do that since Dwight Howard in 2004. He’d also be just the third Georgian to receive that distinction, joining Kwame Brown of Brunswick in 2001.

What else does it mean? Zion Williamson, the top pick of the 2019 draft, signed a four-year contract reportedly worth $44.4 million. The No. 10 selection of last year’s draft, Kevin Porter, inked a $10 million deal. So, Wednesday will be a life-changing moment regardless of draft position.

Whatever that happens to be, it will represent a blessing not only to Edwards, but also to his sister, Antoinette, and brother, Antoine. They raised Edwards after their mother, Yvette Edwards, and grandmother, Shirley Edwards, died from separate illnesses in the same year not long after Anthony Edwards entered high school.

“I just want to show them that I’m a great kid off the court,” Edwards said of the NBA. “I’m always smiling, always happy, and I’m just a good spirit. … I’m ready to go and I’ll just be happy with wherever I fall.”

As usual, there was a pretty good debate raging in the days leading into Wednesday’s draft if, in fact, Edwards should be No. 1. There is sentiment that perhaps it should be James Wiseman of Memphis or LaMelo Ball of California, among others.

Meanwhile, Edwards said he worked out only for Minnesota, Golden State and Charlotte. Those happen to be the teams selecting one, two and three, pending potential trades.

The Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers meet Thursday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Miami Heat need a win here to get back to a .500 record. The Miami Heat are averaging 111.3 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Cheap Tyler Herro Jersey is averaging 17.7 points and 6.8 rebounds while Cheap Bam Adebayo Jersey is averaging 17.4 points and five assists. Jimmy Butler is the third double-digit scorer and Cheap Gabe Vincent Jersey is grabbing two rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.1 rebounds per game.

The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 113.4 points on 47.3 percent shooting and allowing 110.9 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 26.6 points and 12.1 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19 points and 3.1 assists. Seth Curry is the third double-digit scorer and Shake Milton is dishing 3.3 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.8 rebounds per game.

Well, if what remained of the Miami Heat after contact-tracing were going to beat the Philadelphia 76ers, it would’ve been their Tuesday night overtime loss. In the two teams’ second consecutive meeting, the Sixers dominated from late in the first quarter through the rest of the game to come away with a 125-108 victory.

Miami had the same eight players that suited up for the Tuesday night matchup, while the Sixers got Tobias Harris and Shake Milton back. Milton looked like Allen Iverson for spurts of the game, scoring 19 of his 31 points in the first half and going 11-for-15 from the field overall.

Harris, for his part, went 7-for-13 from the field and finished with 18 points. Miami’s lack of wing depth due to contact-tracing was on full display defensively. At certain points, Harris had the point guard Gabe Vincent defending him.

The Heat would’ve needed to have another great 3-point shooting performance to make a game out of it, and that didn’t happen. Miami shot 12-of-34 from beyond the arc. Cheap Kelly Olynyk Jersey was the ugliest, as he went just 1-for-7 from downtown — and his lone make came in the final minutes of the game. And the Heat turned the ball over 20 times, mishaps that frequently led to transition opportunities from the Sixers.

Cheap Duncan Robinson Jersey led Miami with 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field. He made four of his eight 3-point attempts, but Robinson showed more elements to his game — like the drives and cuts to the basket we first saw during the seeding games of the NBA bubble.

Aside from a good game from Robinson, the Heat would’ve needed more than a good half from Tyler Herro. In the first quarter, Herro took fellow Kentucky product Tyrese Maxey into the post for a nice duck-in. It was a play that revealed the continuing evolution of Herro’s offensive game, and it was a welcome sign.

But after scoring more than 30 points in each of his last two games, Herro went 0-for-4 in the second half Thursday night to finish with 17 points. Erik Spoelstra only played the sophomore 10 minutes in the second half, perhaps because the game was already out of hand.

The player who probably came out of these two games looking the best is Vincent, who scored 21 points and dished out eight assists Thursday. Vincent showed skill in making layups over Dwight Howard and Joel Embiid and also knocked down four 3-pointers. At this point, we have to think that Vincent has leapfrogged over Cheap Kendrick Nunn Jersey in the rotation.

Cheap Precious Achiuwa Jersey recorded his second consecutive double-double, finishing the game with 10 points and 11 rebounds. He continues to show the areas of room for growth — he missed four free throws and continued his habit of turning the ball over instantly after grabbing a rebound. But on a positive note, the rookie made a nice Euro-step to elude Embiid on a fast-break opportunity.

Fellow big man Cheap Chris Silva Jersey had a good game, feasting on dunk opportunities to go 4-for-6 from the field. Silva also had a great block on Embiid in the first quarter.

The Heat are 11-2-1 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games. The 76ers are 17-8 ATS in their last 25 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Heat last 6 road games. The over is 4-1 in 76ers last 5 overall. The Heat are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Miami Heat continue to throw out a severely undermanned roster and that’s why the line is what it is. However, we saw these teams play Tuesday night and that Heat roster took the 76ers to overtime and would have won late if the fourth quarter if they didn’t turn the ball over. The Philadelphia 76ers bring a lackluster effort at times and simply don’t put teams away. No matter who is on the court for the Heat, they’re going to play hard. Give me the points.
