Barring injury, he WILL be the starting point guard before the season is over.

I like the 1 turnover. Shows he's in control. I always thought he was a great pick and roll player ala Steve Nash.

I haven't been an NBA fan in a long time, but after this I may have to reconsider. He looked the same as he did playing for UConn. I think Bazz is going be a great pro and his passing skills are going to get a lot more opportunities to shine. I'm so proud of him.

I never doubt for a second that Napier will shine in NBA. The video clip shows his WHOLE game, not just offense prowess. He will be THE starting point guard of the heat.

However, what really stood out to me is his post-game interview. He is fast becoming the ambassador of UCONN basketball in NBA. He is carrying torch for UCONN in NBA. That is what 4 years of UCONN education instill upon you, not some of universities with rotating doors with one year stay-over.

That dish with a minute left to break the tie in OT was classic Shabazz. Made the whole defense collapse, kicked it out to a wide open shooter. He didn't feel the need to force a shot so he could be the hero, just did what was needed for his team to win.

The post game interview is also impressive. Shabazz is a very well spoken star in the making. Pat Riley hits another one out of the park.

Don't really think you can give Riley all the credit. Bazz was drafted as a last ditch effort to get LeBron to come back. That's not to say Miami didn't recognize and want his talent but chances are they had others higher on their draft chart
