Shane Battier hits Denny’s to celebrate the Miami Heat’s championship


Shane Battier is what I like to call “quietly clutch.” You rarely ever hear much about the Miami Heat forward and he doesn’t score many points, but when the stakes are high he seems to become more reliable. In the Heat’s Game 7 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night, Battier drained six three-pointers. Miami needed him to step up after Ray Allen went ice cold, and Battier did exactly that.

After the game, Battier and some family and friends hit Denny’s to enjoy a celebratory breakfast. While his teammates partied the night and morning away with some celebrities and even one member of the opposing team, Battier and his humble self enjoyed a Grand Slam and a glass of ice water.

“Denny’s, a championship tradition,” Battier wrote on Twitter along with the photo you see above. “#Grandslam.”

For most players, back-to-back championships feel even better with a glass of Dom Perignon. For Battier, a simple chain restaurant breakfast does the trick.

    Is he the first person to ever wear a tie to Denny’s? Has to be up there

    No way. Have you ever heard of the senior prom?

    I would rather be Jason Collins 2.0 than all the dumb MFers with a handful of kids, baby mama drama, and broke by 45 because they tried to “keep it real”.

    Not a Miami Heat fan, but I think I’m now a Shane Battier fan.
