Eddie House on New-Look Heat: ‘Boston on Steroids’

The former Celtic and current Heat guard tells the Arizona Republic that Miami’s transformation dwarfs the one that took place in Beantown a couple of years ago: “Eddie House has been around the block. Now, he’s joined the circus. He will report to the Miami Heat on Monday, forming alliances with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and others. One of the game’s more likeable characters will begin assimilating with the most reviled team in the NBA. ‘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.’”

    Eddie House you just earned yourself, don’t come back to Boston card. Also Eddie House is a journey man player who Boston should have kept, could have used him in this years Finals, when Ray was off. LOL!! One of the B Team players is on steroids, so using this word is interesting. BOOK IT!!!

    eddie is one of the game’s more likable characters? what? i like eddie, but i like him because he helped greatly in the creation of the current mass HATE for the C’s. i think eddie will do well with the ridiculously wide open 3′s this year. i can picture eddie dangers putting a lot of MIA games out of reach. he got himself into a good spot and probably another ring. hope that doesn’t happen, but there’s a great chance.

    I think what he wanted to say is that Miami’s big three is younger and more talented overall which makes them a “stronger” three than the Celtics three. Not sure if they’ll be as efficient as the Celts were in 2008, but they have the “ability” to be that.

    are we really so dumb that we need to try to interpret what he meant here? come on, people. it’s not even offensive. it’s a metaphor.

    Can’t stand this guy. Must have been on 10 different teams (in 10 years), has a nice stroke
    but is waaaaaay to inconsistant to catch on anywhere for a long contract. MIA is reaching….Hahahah

  • JoeMaMa

    This team does NOT happen if not for the incredible pull of Eddie House. The House always wins. Except when he guards MJ. At which points his best defense is to blow on him in a mock I-can’t-touch-him way. ‘Member?

    I was skimming through and caught “Eddie House on Steroids”

  • Morgan

    Is he a likeable character? I’m sure i’ve seen this guy being slapped by Rafer Alston mid-game..

  • http://www.slamonline.com J

    and yes the seed was pointing on lebron! who else could it be?! seed you’re gay..

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Eddie House isn’t inconsistent.
    He just can’t do much besides shoot jumpers. And he’s just over 6 feet.
    That’s going to make it tough to stick in the NBA with any team.

    dude has a shot like few others in the league.. cant wait to see him ruin other teams game plans with those wide open 3s

    MIAMI SUX!!!!! they have 3 all stars on the team n only ONE of them has a ring… everybody needs to stop talkin how their the team to beat when they havent done anythin except for D-Wade BULLS, CELTICS, n MAGIC are the team to beat in the east bcuz if one of the trio gets hurt then miami is done.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Funnily, no one on the Bulls or Magic have a ring either. Oh wait, Jason Williams does, but he got that as a member of the Heat. Jacka*s. And up until two seasons Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Ron Artest didn’t have one either. Go back under Joakim Noah’s nutsack, woman.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    Y’all know I’m a die-hard Bulls fan till the day I die, but I can’t co-sign someone saying we’re the team to beat. Not this year.

    Two words: “Headband Jiggle.” That is all.

  • http://N/a Sincere

    Eddie is as right as the open 3 point shots he will be shooting next year lebron is the best player in da world.d Wade is the third best with bosh in the top 10 who would have the time to watch him while those 3 are on da court.the game is 5 on 5 not 5 on 7.Boston no chance magic no chance bulls no chance la no chance.lebron is the king

  • Chou

    I liked Eddie House when he got slapped in the head by Skip.

  • JTaylor21
