Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra Excited To Add Ray Allen

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra is very excited to have Ray Allen on his team, as the Heat look to defend their NBA championship. Allen has had a great NBA career and Spoelstra feels that his three-point shooting game is something the Heat have been missing:

"He's a Hall of Fame-type catch-and-shoot player," Spoelstra said. "We haven't had that element before in our offense. So it's been a lot of fun, trying to X-and-O and come up with new ways to get him open. I don't want to overthink it. I don't want to totally change what we do, but that's a great element to have, that type of weapon."

With the Heat adding a threat to shoot the ball from beyond the arc, that can only make them a better team as it will open up the floor for LeBron James. Dwyane Wade Chris Bosh to be able to have more freedom to make plays.

Spoelstra knew that in order to defend their title they needed to make some roster moves and keep up with the other teams in the NBA that made big signings, such as the Lakers landing Dwight Howard.
