I love this dude, one of the players I've become a huge fan of since the whole Miami big 3. Seems like a great teammate and very intelligent dude.

I can't speak for Battier's performance against other teams while playing for the Rockets, but he has always been clutch against the Lakers:

Battier game winner opening night

Battier takes over late in fourth

Kobe gets him back though

I appreciate Battier's game. Everything you want from a role player. Great defense, great three point shooter, high IQ, intangibles and he seems like a great locker room guy. I would love him on the Lakers.

Battier has been great last year too with underrated clutch defense and playoff 3's. He fits the Heat system perfectly and has had good to great performances when the Heat needed it the most.

Shout-out to Shane.

Shame nobody cared about his retirement. He had a crazy defensive impact in his prime.

True. Never a great athlete but just a big-time defensive player in his best days, and he knocked down some shots too.

Wade always said he was the smartest person on the team when they played together. Seems like he would be great Coach, Defense first of course.

here's my compliment to him.

if you talk trash to him, and he responds, it might actually means that you are smart.

Man it was sad seeing him so washed up that Final Heat season. Spolestra abused that guy. Was just as important as Lebron to the defense.
