  1. Pat Riley is totally serious about Erik Spoelstra as coach; no one believes him

    Jul 10, 2010, 3:24 PM EDT

    What’s that? The Heat are back in contention? Start the Pat Riley coup d’etat rumors! Heave! Heave you miserable media writers! Heave! Pat Riley, though, is having none of it. After the unbearably ridiculous press conference to introduce the Heat, Riley re-asserted what he’s said all along, and what LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have…

  2. Jerry Buss is not handing over the Larry O'Brien trophy to Miami. At least not willingly.

    Jul 10, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Good luck prying the NBA title out of the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers. Lakers owner Jerry Buss was in Vegas to watch some Summer League ball (and play in the World Series of Poker; and probably not in that order) when Sam Amick from FanHouse asked him if LeBron James in Miami scared…

    Jul 10, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Man, is this going to get awkward. At the press-conference… and I use that term loosely, to introduce LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh as the new Heat triumvirate yesterday, LeBron reacted to Gilbert’s diatribe comments in his letter to the fans of Cleveland (and subsequent interviews). Courtesy of Heat blog Peninsula is Mightier…

    Jul 10, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    The numbers have come out, and the Miami Thrice team-up of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are true to their word, money was not the main thing. Okay, it was a pretty big thing. James and Bosh are each making $110.1 million over the course of six years, with Wade making $107. It’s…

  9. LeBron James and Chris Bosh re-up with their respective teams…before being traded to the Heat

    Jul 9, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    With a sequence of events as massive in scale as the LeBron-Bosh coup, we all knew it couldn’t be simple.

Though rather than signing as an afterthought with the Miami Heat or filling in as a designated shooter…
