Don't believe Mayo-to-Miami talk

09:19 AM ET 06.18 | It should appear blatantly obvious that the O.J. Mayo-to-Miami talk is just the type of subterfuge the Heat loves being a part of this time of year, whether it is picking second or 22nd. And it is only fitting Mayo and Miami are playing off each other to create an artificial buzz. Mayo, as many in the business are convinced, is a masterful con man himself, even as a 20-year-old. No, if Miami is going to hold on to the No. 2 pick, it won't be Mayo sporting the Heat jersey. It will be Michael Beasley, regardless of how hesitant the Heat front office is about him (and word is there is a very real concern coming from Miami). There is no excuse for not taking the best player available that night in the draft.
