    Averaged 5 points and 2 rebounds last year

    This year 11 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists (all career highs) and a block and a steal and sorting 35% from three. I mean it's about to be February and Winslow IS out the whole year so the stats can still rise

    I wish he wasn't 29 I want him here for the next 2 seasons

    Most important of all. South4life, you won't feel the same about these wins in June when we're choosing in the 10 to 20 range and don't end up with a high impact player.

    To keep Okaro beyond this weekend, we need to trade or release a player. Heat are exploring options. Bum ass Derrick Williams is the player involved.

    We do have a great operation/farm system going with the skyforce though. It's the same exact system/culture on both teams. I know that's a big reason

    Damn near half the team came from the D League.
    Dragic, J. Johnson, Waiters, D. Williams, Babbit, McTrash and Ellington came from Trades or Free Agency.
    Winslow and Richardson came from the draft and the rest from The D League, that's crazy.

    Rodney McGruder

    No player encapsulates Miami’s rise more than McGruder, whose ability to come up with loose balls has his teammates calling him “The Scavenger.” An undrafted free agent out of Kansas State in 2013 who spent a season in Hungary and two seasons in the D-League, McGruder came into training camp fighting to make the team. But he had a leg up on his competition for the 15th spot on the roster: He averaged 15.8 points per game as a starter last season for the D-League champion Sioux Falls Skyforce, the Heat’s D-League affiliate, which ran the same offense that Spoelstra uses in Miami. The Heat have been one of the best at using their D-League team; McGruder, Whiteside, Richardson, and Johnson are all Skyforce alums.

    McGruder took over as the starting small forward when Winslow went down on New Year’s Eve, which wound up being one of the turning points for the Heat. McGruder isn’t nearly as talented as Winslow, a former lottery pick, but he’s a much better outside shooter, which opens up the floor for Dragic, Waiters, and Whiteside. McGruder is shooting 32.9 percent from 3 on the season (and 37.2 percent over the past 15 games), compared to 20 percent for Winslow, and he’s a smart player who rarely makes mistakes. He’s the perfect role player, catching and firing quickly, confidently attacking close-outs, and keeping the ball zipping around the perimeter.

    But where he really earns his keep is on defense, despite giving up a ton of size at small forward. At 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds with a 6-foot-5 wingspan, McGruder doesn’t have elite speed or length, but he’s a sound positional defender with quick hands who never gives up on plays and rarely allows open looks if he’s in the vicinity of a shot attempt. He plays with the hunger you would expect from a longtime D-Leaguer getting a chance in the NBA, and his combination of hustle and intelligence has made him a favorite of the Miami coaching staff. They slide him around the perimeter to match up with the opposing team’s best player, and he’s one of the best isolation defenders in the league, giving up only 0.70 points per possession when being attacked one-on-one.

    Also give props to Reed and James Johnson
