Eddie House knows revenge is a dish best served with Heat

And last season they shipped him out to New York, a basketball wasteland at the time, for Nate Robinson. House admitted to the Arizona Republic he did not enjoy the move.

“That stung a little bit,” House said. “When you feel like you’re a main part of what the team is doing and you’re on a mission, to get the rug pulled out from under you and get sent to a team that has no shot . . . that kind of hurt.”

So now he’s with a bigger Big 3 in Miami, and he’s got his sights set on Boston.

“I compare it to the year I went to Boston when the Big 3 got together in 2007,” House said. “But this is going to be even bigger. This is going to be Boston on steroids.”

But can the Heat beat the steroid-free Celtics? Or Orlando in a seven game series? We are a long way away from finding out, but you can bet that Doc Rivers is right about one thing — how good the new Big 3 are will depend on their defense. Boston and its trio committed to defense first, that’s what got them a ring. We’ll see if the Heat three are willing to make that same commitment.

    Is he going to start in Miami? I figure with Mike Miller there, Eddie will, once again, be coming off the bench.

    Eddie will probably be the 8th or 9th option. Wade, Chalmers (or Arroyo if Mario regresses), LBJ, Bosh and Big Z will be the starting five. Udonis, Miller and Arroyo (or Chalmers if Arroyo is starting PG) will be the first to come off the bench, and then House.

    New York wasn’t just a “basketball wasteland at the time.” It still is and will continue to be until D’Antoni is fired. The Celtics and Heat are both great franchises with classy coaches and management – the opposite of the Knicks.
