Eddie House’s job with Miami: more than catch, shoot, pound chest
Eddie House’s agent says the veteran guard has agreed to terms on a $2.8 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat. Agent Mark Bartelstein said Thursday that the second year is a player option.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Catch. Shoot. Pound chest.
This will be Eddie House’s official job description with the Miami Heat in 2011. And for his ability as a sharpshooter, for his ability to punish opposing defenses that double-team the Three Kings, House will earn in excess of a million dollars.
However, the journeyman also brings certain intangibles.
In 07 Seconds Or Less – the best seller by CNNSI’s Jack McCallum that covers the Phoenix Suns’ 2006 season – House was universally loved by teammates and coaches. Same thing with the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks.
Once again, the Heat did well with the House signing. He’ll do more than ‘catch, shoot, and pound chest’. He’ll provide some much needed moments of laughter and entertainment.
This will be his unofficial job description.
