The Miami Heat were looking to lock up every free agent they could after signing veteran shooting guard Ray Allen.

After that, the Heat tried signing up former Houston Rockets center Marcus Camby, who almost did until he bolted to re-join the New York Knicks.

However, the big reason Camby didn't sign with the Heat was the battles he used to have with them back in the past. He just couldn't see himself wearing that uniform.

“I knew that it would have been very hard for me to put on that Miami Heat uniform, especially all the battles we used to have back in the days with Houston and those guys,” he told Newsday. “I’m happy things worked out.”

Steve Nash said the same exact thing until the veteran point guard ended up joining the Los Angeles Lakers. It's funny how things work sometimes.
