I hope he can reach 100 percent this year or Wade maybe in for a long year.

I've been lobbying & blogging for the Heat to add this guy. i love his game, and the potential he showed in LA. Now, hopefully his body is stronger as a result of the injury. Like Wade, who had the same off season trainer as Sean, came back stronger this summer with more explosion & hops then before his knee injury. Livingston is primed to do the same. I don't think it'l take him a full year to get back. I think around Dec/Jan he should be back at full strength, explosion, lateral motion and ready to contribute as a starter! Nice pick up Riley.. LET'S GO HEAT...This addition adds a ginormous up side for the backcourt in MIA. I look forward to BIG games b/w Wade & Livingston. They could be the best backcourt in the East, challenging DET's backcourt combo of Hamilton, Billups & Stuckey!

You just do not find players that young, inexpensive and with that much potential. If he gets back to around 100% what a bargain.

As bad as the injury was certainly a risk worth taking.
