Miami Heat’s Shane Battier: ‘All that matters is getting the W. Anything else is semantics’
It’s been a long and successful career for Shane Battier, with the universally respected veteran drawing praises throughout the league. But from a team perspective, Battier has experienced bad luck, never reaching the conference finals in his 12-year career.
Tuesday night, in his first championship-level game since he won the national title with Duke in 2001, Battier played great, scoring 17 points, many of which coming on four big 3s.
