The Miami Heat keep the 10th pick!!

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Finally. Some certainty.

Some luck after such an unlucky season. Before 8:30 I was quoting the beginning lines of Eminem's 'Lose Yourself.' Just sitting here singing about how my palms are sweaty, knees weak arms are heavy. By the time the results came, I was more of a Pharell - 'Happy.' type of mood. So what happened?

The Miami Heat KEEP their #10 pick.

Who has been the #10 picks of note?

Paul Pierce - You may know him through his "I called game" and many other legendary shots he has over his remarkable career

Paul George - Star of the Indiana Pacers

Caron Butler - You remember him right?

Who are the options available #10 most likely?

Stanley Johnson, SF, Arizona

Kelly Oubre, SF, Kansas

Frank Kaminsky, PF/C - Wisconsin

Sam Dekker, PF - Wisconsin

Willie Cauley-Stein, PF/C - Kentucky

Devin Booker, SG, Kentucky

Though I was hoping that the Heat would luckily bounce its way to a top 3 pick, I'm fine with settling for #10. Considering how this past season has been filled with so much misfortune, Miami is lucky NOT to have lost its pick. The Heat keep the #10 pick!!
