    ohhh what a perfect day… – that’s my first “first” ever, i want to thank god, mum & dad, my grandparents, my manager, all of my friends, all the guys at slam, keep up the good work and finally not to forget james jones for making all that possible, god bless your spirit, it’s just a dream come true!

  • Rasheedionics

    He instantly becomes Miami’s best 3 point shooter. Great pickup in my opinion.

    I was initially wondering how Lebron James got out of his contract so early

    a good look for the heat

    im a celtics fan, and i thought it was james posey at first. haha.

  • MSkittle

    You guys messed up with the headline. I was thinking it was Mike James.

    I was hoping Jerome James had eaten the remainder of his Knicks contract.

    I thought it was Jerome James. Ok, i didn’t, but i think the point is that the NBA has too many james.

    why does any team want kwame brown

    i kind of like the guy. he’s hard working, and he is gonna bring his A game every night.and he can really shoot the ball

    I thought Damian James from the Longhorns got drafted.

    I thought it was James from the Bible. That or the ambiguously gay early 90s English band of the same name. I win either way.

    i also thought it was mike james. i thought that’d be a good pick up, but james jones ain’t bad either. the Heat need an outside threat right?
    btw, is White Chocolate that bad now?

  • Captain America

    Still lacking a pg and pivot.

    i thought it was Edward James Olmos.

  • Nique

    Good pickup..definately stretch the floor if he strokes the way he did with Pheonix. I think they still need a big body since Zo is out. Cause Earl Barron and Simmien ain’t cutting it.

  • http://fjkdlzf.com Jukai

    albie: if he could play more than seven games without hurting himself, White Chocolate would still be an above average point guard

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    he was injured that much last year? i didn’t even pay any attention to the Heat last year.

  • underdog

    Too bad the Blazers let him walk.

  • http://www.brisbane.basketball.net.au Deuce21

    I thought it was Rick James. He got 5 years once.

  • http://fjkdlzf.com Jukai

    Why in the world would the Blazers need him with the talent they have, Underdog?

    HAHAHA @ Ryan 11:59 comment!

    this is a great pick up for miami. i have no idea why they threw away ALL their 3pt shooters after their title winning year (posey, kapono, EVEN WALKER).. but this will definitely help them. i just don’t know if he’ll be able to start if wade is SG, marion, SF, and beasley at PF…i’m guessing chalmers will eventually be PG… unless they want to run small and make beasley a center.. but that won’t happen..

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Thank you.

  • ciolkstar

    IF they want to go small, Haslem would play center, Beasley is only 6-7/6-8 while Haslem is closer to 6-10 and is a more rugged rebounder/defender. I might play Marion at the 4 and Beasley at the 3, again for rebounding and size purposes.

    Good player, but five years? Really?

  • Tuomas

    Yeah, Henry James could really stroke it. Oh, nevermind…

    HEY RUSS…the last thing Jerome needs to do is eat.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    This is a good pick-up. James Jones is a pretty solid player to have on your team who can shoot the trey relatively well, which the heat need desperately.

    Also, HAHA that guy made a speech about being first but in taking that time, guess what?

    i thought the heat had signed james earl jones to commentate to the five people that turn up to the heat games
