Shabazz Napier alley-oop to James Ennis, this could be Miami’s offense next season (VIDEO)

Jul 10, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

This will either be the garbage-time sideshow for Miami next season, or the lone bastion of hope for the future of what remains of Heat fans. It all depends on what LeBron James decides.

Either way, it’s pretty entertaining.

That’s rookie Shabazz Napier throwing the lob to rookie James Ennis. (If you don’t remember Ennis, the Heat traded to get him deep in the second round of the 2013 draft out of Long Beach State, he played this past season in Austrailia and had a monster year. He’s looked like a nice “3 and D” guy in Summer League so far, like the kind of guy the Heat could have used last year.)

Either way, these guys could be a couple reasons to tune into Heat games next season. That and Josh McRoberts.

    That was about the best thing Napier did all game. Shot 2-13.

      Starting five for your 2014 Miami Heat:

      Shabazz “3-20” Muhammed
      Mario “Franchise” Chalmers
      James “Fosters-Australian for Birdman” Ennis
      Josh “Who?” McRoberts
      Dwayne “Icy-hot” Wade

        So… #3 seed in the East?

      that’s my line…

      I’m the one that was saying he was a terrible pick on draft night and you and I, and a few others, went back and forth with ya’ll defending him.

      i think the Heat made a mistake taking him

      at best he’s a backup PG in the league.

      I can’t go back on what I said so soon… plus his summer league play is validating what I said so far.

        Well two bad shooting games doesn’t mean he’s a terrible pick. Doesn’t even mean he didn’t play well overall. It means he didn’t shoot well in two games.

        I like how he delivered the oop though… some guys can never get that right and he does it naturally. So that’s something! He’ll need that in his toolkit if LeBron stays.

    He’ll be throwing a bunch of oops to LeBron this coming season too… If Miami trades him to Cleveland after LeBron leaves tonight

    I really hope LeBron stays in Miami for the sole purpose that all you haters won’t know what to do with yourselves if he doesn’t!

      What still not like the Heat, root for the Celtics, and go on like it doesn’t matter. If LBJ stays or leaves I will still not like the Heat, and if he goes to the Cavs I will have to reignite my disdain for the Cavs. I think i do know what I’ll do with myself, what I wonder is how many seats will be empty in Miami if he does leave. Thinking it will be more than a few.

      I would be happy if LeBron stayed in Miami too, because I do feel for the people down there, and I have a hard time sleeping at night thinking about Wade crying in Gabrielle’s bare lap… with her creamy smooth skin on her toned and fit thighs… and sweet smell… sorry, what was I talking about again?

      I won’t like Miami no matter what. Too many huge bugs and snowbirds

        we could all make a list

        Lakers too many earthquake’s and everything and everyone is fake (and their team is kinda bad too). But L.A. has a great pro football team…

        NYC rotten to the core apple AND new york SUPER RATS the size of dogs

        and so on and so on… until we get to the…


        Oak Street beach, the lake, Uno’s pizza, Da Bears, Da Cubs, Da Blackhawks, Da Bulls

        the Loop, the Magnificent Mile, Uno’s pizza (I know I said it twice and that’s because it’s worth mentioning twice).

        the midwest, real, not fake, no weird accents
