Tweet of the Day: Heat Are Getting Deeper

Mason Jr.

The Miami Heat got a little deeper over the weekend, adding NBA veteran Roger Mason Jr. Not exactly a blockbuster signing, but Mason can provide the Heat with additional three-point shooting after losing Mike Miller in free agency. It’s not everyday a player gets the chance to suit up with the champions, but Mason seems to realize that.

Shoulda, coulda, woulda. We all remember Game 6 of the NBA Finals, correct? And we all remember Game 7, and the way Tim Duncan looked afterward — like he was at a funeral.

A lot can change in just under five months. Just ask the basketball fans of New Orleans. They really needed change after what went on last season. The 2012-2013 season was dark and gloomy for NOLA hoops. The team finished 14th in the Western Conference at 27-55, with an 11-30 road record that was also 14th in the conference. The team had trouble scoring (more on that later) and winning intraconference games. Its record against West teams was 15-37, good for
