Shane Battier Quotes Buffett When Announcing He’s Joining the Heat

December 8th, 2011

NBA player Shane Battier announced this morning on Twitter that he will join the Miami Heat now that the lockout is over. In his announcement, Battier quoted Miami Heat season ticket holder Jimmy Buffett:

The Lockout gave me a lots of time to consider what was important to me at this stage of my life and career. Over the last week, I’ve played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role. I am appreciative of all the kind words and recruiting pitches over the last week, thank you!!

This was a exciting process and after much deliberation, I would like to quote the great poet Jimmy Buffett and take my chances “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season”
