The Miami Heat are looking to make this upcoming NBA season a “revenge” season after they made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last year before losing to the Boston Celtics in Game 7.

One player that should want to be a huge part of helping get the Miami Heat back into a contending position this this upcoming year, while also looking to help himself get back into a contending position, is Duncan Robinson.

Here is how he can rebound from his down year last season, while also helping the Miami Heat do the same.

Renew His Three Point Shooting

Robinson shot 37.2 percent from behind the three point stripe last season for the Heat. He will need to work on knocking down more shots from three point range and the best way for him, an already elite shooter, to do that is by diversifying his shooting platforms, placement, and spots on the floor.

If he reverts back to his previous form from distance, closer to 40 percent on nearly eight attempts or more than not, this will help players like Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo get easier opportunities as they attack the paint.

Miami Heat shooter, Duncan Robinson, had a good season last year, but here is how he will make this upcoming season even better for himself and his team.

There should be more space available based on the renewed havoc that Robinson could cause on the outside, meaning defenders will have to come out to try and stop Robinson again. That’s not all though.

Assist Numbers

Last year, Robinson finished the season with only 1.6 assists per game for the Heat. He needs to work on his court vision and especially because he should see that it severely cripples him when his shot isn’t going.

Playing with playmakers like Victor Oladipo, Kyle Lowry, and Tyler Herro, Robinson can create plays that can lead to big plays down the stretch of games, increasing the lead, and making sure the opponents do not know what he is going to do next. Basically, the more versatile he can become, the more it allows him to be great at his superpower, shooting, as it keeps the defenders on their toes.

Needs To Be A Leader On The Court

Duncan Robinson needs to step up in a position where he can become a vocal leader on the court. We know that this might be difficult with leaders like Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, and Bam Adebayo, but he has been there long enough to begin to offer that kind of value. That’s also a way he could see himself gain an advantage on other guys.

Overall, Robinson can improve greatly this upcoming NBA season and can help the Miami Heat with their “revenge” season if he finds a way to get back to being him, the guy we’ve seen for the better part of two seasons.
