Miami's Vice

Great stuff from Eric over at the OregonLive Blazer Blog. Putting in work on a Sunday? That's dedication.
If Ruben wants to go to the Heat, someone buy him a case of sun screen and put him on the first charter flight full of blue hairs to Florida. If there is actually an interest from Pat Riley, Nash should be willing to take on anyone short of Antoine Walker to get it done. A wannabe contender is the only team that is going to be interested in a guy like Ruben, and Miami certainly fits that bill. The thing is, in the right setting (Miami), with the right coach (Riley), and with the right group of dynamic, locker room heavies (Shaq), Ruben could be useful. A trade of James Posey and Wayne Simien for Rube works. This would be a great trade for the Blazers, as they get a decent, big guard whose contract is expiring, a young power forward, and, most importantly, one less Ruben Patterson. Granted, Riley would almost have to be sure that getting the Rube would put them over the top, or else it wouldn't make much sense for Miami to trade an expiring contract and a rookie, but that's for Miami to deal with. Of course, Dwayne Wade and Michael Doleac for Ruben works as well, but I doubt Miami would be willing to part with a young superstar like Doleac.
