Raptors at Heat: Pono returns

Easily one of my top 10 favorite Heat players of all time, Jason Kapono went from bench warming funny white guy with awesome hair in 2006 to NBA best 3 point shooter in 2007 to overpaid underachiever with the Raps in 2008.

The Raptors called Kapono at 12:01am when free agency opened, and offered the max mid level exception they could - $24 million over 4 years. Since December 29, here are the points Kapono has scored per game: 6,0,0,2,8,2,2,14,8,4,2,0,6,2,8,8. I do think he'd be scoring a lot more for the Heat - they need the punch, but right now the Raps can't be happy given what they are paying him.

Heat career hi-lite, winning last year's 3 point shoot-out and equalling the record for points in a final round - notice how pimpin' Shaq looks - he's like the black Dick Tracy with his yellow fedora and coat.
