I think he's going to be by far the best midseason pickup Miami has had in the "Big Three" era. That's not saying much though considering the other candidates were Mike Bibby, and Ronny Turiaf.
Whenever we play against big teams, like Pacers or Grizzlies, Bosh and Birdman should be the frontcourt. No way Battier should play 4 against those teams.
Birdman is a taller Haslem. I love Haslem but his midrange game is poor and he overhelps alot.
