  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: No LeBron, no Wade, no problem

    Jan 6, 2012, 4:17 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what a crocodile would do with a lawn mower… Heat 116, Hawks 109 (3OT): No LeBron James or Dwyane Wade for Miami, yet the Heat were gritty (a little lucky) and get an unexpected win. This game was entertaining and dramatic, much more so than we expected going in. But can…

  2. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

  4. NBA releases All-Star ballot, here are my early votes

    Jan 4, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    All-star-nba-logo0103_rdax

    You can vote — and not just if you’re a Republican in Iowa. The NBA opened All-Star Game voting to the fans on Wednesday, so you can pick who will not play any defense in Orlando Feb. 26. Fan voting picks the starters, the coaches for the teams help pick the rest of the squad.…

  5. The Nets, “Community,” and the darkest timeline

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    darkesttimeline

    In the Community (Thursdays this…. sometime in the coming months… on NBC!) episode “Remedial Chaos Theory,” the writers took the ol’ alternate timeline theory and spread it out like a Nuggets fast break. The concept is simple. The cast of man characters are at an apartment, sitting around a table. The door buzzer buzzes with…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Denver makes lay-ups, beats L.A.

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:38 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already… Nuggets 99, Lakers 90: Best game of the night and there was a little fire to this one — second nights of a home-and-home often carry over some tension. Denver jumped out early with Kobe Bryant shooting only 1-of-10 in the first half and the…

  7. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  8. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  9. Welcome Norris Cole, your new fan favorite in Miami

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:55 PM EDT

    Norris Cole Getty

    Norris Cole was fearless. Fans can sense that and love it. Cole became the new fan favorite (behind the big 3) in Miami by scoring 14 fourth-quarter points to stave off a Boston comeback and keep the Heat perfect on the young season. Cole, the rookie out of Cleveland State, was the man knocking down…

  10. Boston fights back but Miami relentless, too much for C’s

    Dec 28, 2011, 12:11 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Boston would not get steamrolled. You’ve got to give them that. When Dallas found themselves getting overwhelmed early by the aggressive and up-tempo version of the Heat on Christmas Day, the Mavs rolled over and played dead. Not Boston. They scrapped and zoned all the way back to make it a game. But in the…

  11. Video: Miami Heat 2011 intro video (with extra neon)

    Dec 27, 2011, 10:18 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    You were just saying to yourself “where can I see the Miami Heat roster laid out in neon with all the guys dressed very stylishly?” Well, we’re here to help. This is your 2011 Miami Heat intro video. Enjoy. At least this year they don’t have to tell the fans to show up on time…

  12. Preview: Will Miami be able to run over Boston, too?

    Dec 27, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    lebron-garnett1

    Miami looked dominant on opening day. They came into the season trying to unbalance a defense with speed and aggressiveness, and it worked on Dallas — Miami had 100 possessions, nine more than they averaged last season. But Boston is a better defensive squad and should prove an interesting preseason test. The two teams meet…

  13. Video: Ira Winderman talks evolution of the Miami Heat

    Dec 27, 2011, 1:35 PM EDT

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The Miami Heat were a running team. LeBron James was camped out in the post, as was Dwyane Wade. It’s just one game, but our own Ira Winderman — who covers the team — talks the evolution of the Heat this season and how they are trying to grow things. How these Heat are different…

  14. Now off to the races: the Miami Heat

    Dec 26, 2011, 7:57 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Tom Haberstroh has some thoughts on the Miami Heat’s new “Pace and Space” offense after the Heat’s opening-day blowout of the defending champion Dallas Mavericks. Here’s a quick excerpt from his post, which starts with a description of LeBron James drawing a foul on a fast break after a made basket: LeBron blurred past the…

  15. Miami 105 Dallas 94: Heat unleash the Nightmare on Christmas for Mavs

    Dec 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    heat_mavericks2

    A three-part preface, to begin, before we cover the Heat’s shelling/drilling/slaughter of the Mavericks. It’s the first game of the season, and the first game of the season is never indicative of how the season will go for either team, even if it seems like it in retrospect. Th Celtics beat the Heat in the…

  17. Super-Conductors, Super-Teams, and You: An analysis of where the mega-squads stand and are constructed

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The Knicks don’t make sense. ***************************** Every team’s fans are defensive of their squad. I like to single out specific fanbases for sport, but in reality, it doesn’t matter the locale or composition. Teams fans will react similarly in most cases provided the writing is not on the wall in gigantic stenciled block letters that…

  19. Rose, Durant go different path with contracts than LeBron

    Dec 23, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose attends news conference in Chicago

    When LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade came up for contract extensions, they all asked for three-year deals, or options that let them opt out of their deals after three years. The idea was simple — gain leverage over the team, pressure them to build a winner or they could lose their star. (We…

  20. Heat may do preseason tour of China next year

    Dec 21, 2011, 1:47 PM EDT

    Lebron-James China

    You get the feeling Nike is the puppet master on this one, pulling all the strings… Monday the Miami Heat signed a sponsorship agreement with Chinese beer company Tsingtao, and that may be the first step to a preseason tour of China for the Heat next season, reports the Sun Sentinel (via SLAM). “We’re not…

  21. Kris Humphries beats out LeBron as NBA’s least liked player

    Dec 21, 2011, 12:56 PM EDT

    kris-humphries

    Finally, Kris Humphries has found a way to get mentioned in the same sentence with LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. In a new poll of the least liked NBA players — conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research, so you know this is legit — Humphries topped even the two traditional black hat guys in…

  23. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Last season: 58-24, second seed in the East. We all know how this turned out — Miami made it to the NBA Finals in its first season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, but lost the title to Dallas in six games. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who interestingly enough has not yet been…

  24. Plenty of teams want in the Chauncey Billups sweepstakes

    Dec 12, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    All the cool kids want Chauncey Billups on their team. Dwight Howard — who has already complained the Magic don’t listen to his player advice — wants him, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN. One of “changes” Dwight Howard wants is signing of Chauncey. If DH12 stays, sources say he’ll urge Billups to spurn Heat and…

  25. Hornets willing to sign-and-trade David West to contender

    Dec 7, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    David_west

    If David West had not blown out his knee last year, he would be mentioned with Nene as a top free agent in this class. There is not a better pick-and-pop big in the game (well, maybe that Nowitzki guy, but the list is short) and West has an all-around game. He’s a former All-Star…
