Tom Haberstroh is one of the many people that was impacted by LeBron James’ infamous decision to head to South Beach in 2010. Having never taken a journalism class, Haberstroh was hired by ESPN.com as an analytics writer for ESPN’s Miami Heat Index.
The sabrematician joined us on One on One to talk about what life is like covering King James on a daily basis. The Wake Forest grad told Kris Venezia and I that the Pacers have the best chance to unseat Miami in the Eastern Conference. Additionally, Haberstroh believes that the Memphis Grizzles will not live up to all the hype in the Western Conference Finals.
Finally the ESPN.com columnist told us that this is a make or break series for JR Smith and Knicks head coach Mike Woodson. Haberstroh believes that the two are squarely on the hot seat and will be blamed if the Knickerbockers can’t get to the Eastern Conference Finals.
