NBA Draft 2011: Kyle Singler and 5 Prospects Who Could Help LeBron James
LeBron needs some help to achieve the multi-championship promise that he made a year ago.
After failing to deliver the first one last night, it is apparent that the Miami Heat need help to become the dynasty that they aspire to be.
Starting with Duke's Kyle Singler, here are six prospects that could help LeBron and the Heat in the NBA Draft.
Singler should be available around the time the Heat pick at the beginning of the second round.
Singler, a four-year starter at Duke, is a competitor. His combination of competitiveness and skill on the court would be a welcome addition to this Heat line-up.
Whereas questions currently abound regarding Lebron's tendency to falter in crucial moments, Singler surely would not shy away from the heat of the spotlight.
Mack is a proven scorer at Butler. He isn't afraid to drive the lane and make the hard baskets.
There are questions about LeBron's ability to take the final shot in the clutch. However, there will never be a question as to whether or not Mack wants the ball in his hands in the game's final seconds.
Jimmer is a gamer. Jimmer is tough. Jimmer 3:16. You get the picture.
For all the talk about how great Fredette was last season, that hype has since died down to a dull roar.
As a result, his stock has dropped dramatically. Perhaps he could find his way to a second-round pick at the hands of Miami.
Johnson is an athletic forward who can provide some much needed defensive help to the Heat.
Johnson could also be Chris Bosh's back-up, who looked to be a bit worn out at the conclusion of the 2011 Finals.
Selby is a quick, athletic guard. One misstep by a defender, and he will drive the lane with the best of them.
The Heat need someone who isn't afraid to get the tough points. Selby is another candidate to do so.
Liggins is a scorer that the Heat desperately need in order to take pressure off the big three.
Furthermore, Liggins has the size to take on any defender in the game.
