There was plenty of uncertainty surrounding the Heat last offseason, even though Riley was confident until the very end. Moves were made with LeBron in mind, and as SB Nation’s Mike Prada notes, these comments bring some legitimacy to the rumors that Shabazz Napier was only picked in last year’s draft because LeBron was a noted fan of Napier at Connecticut.
