  1. Miami Heat front office locked up… now about that Wade guy

    May 3, 2010, 4:41 PM EDT

    Miami has a few advantages for attracting free agents. One is, you know, Miami. Warm weather, great food and restaurants, fantastic, um… scenery. Second is the money to spend on a top free agent, so this player can afford all that great food. Third is Dwyane Wade, and the chance to win playing along side…

  2. LeBron James home next season: Place your bets

    May 3, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Part of the beauty of society/crumbling of our nation’s moral fiber (take your pick) is that you can bet on just about anything. Just a few mouse clicks and you can bet anything from presidential elections to the Oscars. Oh, and where LeBron James will suit up next year. Bodog.com put up the numbers, and…

  3. Chris Bosh asks on twitter where he should go, fail whale unleashed

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh must love to see the twitter fail whale. That or he has been able to buy part of the company and wanted to drive up the traffic numbers. Those reasons make more sense than he actually wanted the advice of the public when he tweeted:  “Been wanting to ask. Where should I go next…

  4. Could Michael Beasley be traded to the Wizards?

    Apr 30, 2010, 7:36 PM EDT

    Our own Ira Winderman has suggested that the Miami Heat would be best off dumping Michael Beasley for cap space, and if they can get a rack of shootaround basketballs out of it, that was gravy. He’s not alone in South Beach — people are basically done with Beasley. (Well, not Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.)…

  5. It's been a few months, must be time for another roster shakeup in Dallas

    Apr 30, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    They shook it up at the trading deadline — in comes Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood. Scoring help and a better center, a deal that looked great on paper — and that didn’t work well at all. The Mavericks looked dangerous at first but their season ended with another first round loss. May be time…

  6. Erik Spoelstra is more patient with Michael Beasley than you are

    Apr 29, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley sat the entire second half of game five against Boston. Udonis Haslem hurts his ankle, and Beasley — the number two overall pick — sat. But don’t read anything into that. I mean, why would you? Heat coach Erik Spoelstra thinks things are progressing just fine, he said in his post-season meeting with…

  7. Let the LeBron James silly season begin: LeBron to Charlotte? Really?

    Apr 28, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    I’d like to say that the idea of LeBron James going to play for the Charlotte Bobcats next year is the silliest LeBron James rumor/theory we are going to hear in the next three months. It’s not. I’m leaning toward a “he is leaving America to play for FC Barcelona” rumor to win out. I…

  8. Quote of the day, Dwyane Wade and losing do not mix

    Apr 28, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    “This will be my last first-round exit for a while, I’ll tell you that.” –Dwyane Wade, after his Miami Heat were eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics. (Via TrueHoop). Take that for what it’s worth, you can read a lot into it, but the smart money is still on the help coming to…

  9. Shannon Brown will bring his dunks to the free agent market

    Apr 25, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Shannon Brown is one of the better athletes in the NBA. He can finish at the rim like few others. Probably shouldn’t put him in the dunk contest again, but the guy has proven with the Lakers that he can fit in with a winning team. He’s got one more year on his deal, a…

  10. Dwyane Wade says he and LeBron play well together, making meaningless headlines

    Apr 25, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    We all love some juicy gossip, and the “Where will LeBron play?” soap opera is the best one going right now. Followed closely by the “Where will Wade play?” one. But now things have gotten ridiculous. Truly ludicrous. Take this comment (via AP) that is drawing headlines. Speaking after practice in Miami on Saturday, one…

  11. Dwyane Wade staying in Miami remains the smart bet

    Apr 22, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    After the game two loss to the Celtics — you may remember that as the one-on-five game — Dwyane Wade was clearly frustrated. He wants some help. He wants to win and that is going to take more talent than currently sits on the Heat bench. So if he’s frustrated, and he is a free…

  12. Please welcome the flood of LeBron speculation

    Mar 3, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

    There have been discussions of it for years. It’s slowly been increasing; a major article here, a random rumor there. But now, with July and the free agency period just four months away, we’ve finally come to it. Everyone and their momma has an idea on what LeBron’s going to do. Now, to be clear,…

  13. Report: LeBron wants to be a Laker

    Feb 28, 2010, 5:56 PM EDT

    Roland Lazenby is pretty plugged in to Laker culture. He recently released a book on Jerry West (see Kurt’s talk with him here and here). Today he releases what will likely be considered a bombshell in some circles. From HoopsHype: “The greatest NBA free agent of all time, LeBron James, is quietly making overtures to…
