The Miami Heat brought in Moe Harkless this offseason to help offset the loss of Jae Crowder. That ties right into his bold prediction.

The Miami Heat put a team together last season on the fly that was good enough to make it all the way to the NBA Finals. They did so by sending out Justise Winslow, James Johnson, and Dion Waiters, in exchange for Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill, and Jae Crowder.

While Iggy was though to be the featured get out of the crew of players that returned to Miami, Jae Crowder turned out to be that guy. Becoming a three-point shooting menace after arriving in South Beach, Crowder proceeded to be a big part of the reason that the Miami Heat were able to advance as far as they did.

He also proceeded to turn last season’s performance into another lucrative offer from another team. He eventually signed with Phoenix on a deal that comes out to around $10 million a year for three years.

He’ll also be playing with Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Deandre Ayton for a team that was just starting to figure it out in the bubble. They should have a real opportunity to make noise in the Western Conference.

With all that and the obvious, We can’t be mad at him. He went and got his money.
