Rumor: LeBron wants Nash and Crawford in Miami?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Lockout or not, LeBron James is recruiting.
‘The King’ recently tweeted that he’d like Jamal Crawford and Steve Nash to sign with the Miami Heat when the labour impasse is solved.
Crawford, a perennial Sixth Man of the Year candidate, would punish opposing defences for double-teaming James and fellow Heat superstars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.
He’d have the same role as Mike Miller. Except Crawford can create off the dribble and has had better luck staying healthy.
The former Bull, Hawk, and Knick is a free agent. Nash, however, is not.
The two-time MVP still has a year remaining on his contract with the Phoenix Suns, so he’d need spend-thrift owner Robert Sarver to buy him out.
Then there are concerns about Nash’s mediocre defense. His teammates and basketball IQ should make up for his tiny stature, though.
We just need a new collective bargaining agreement to see if James’ tweets become reality.
