    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

  2. Derrick Rose says team chemistry will help Bulls compete with league’s elite

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

    Michael Beasley is back with the Miami Heat… at least for training camp. The Miami Heat have signed Beasley to a training camp contract, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and confirmed by the team. The deal is for one year at the veteran minimum ($1 million for him) and this is…

    The FIBA Americas Tournament is currently taking place in Venezuela and, unsurprisingly, the participating NBA players are getting quite a bit of recognition — Even the players that are rarely recognized during the NBA season, like Miami Heat backup big Joel Anthony. ESPN wrote a 700-word feature on the Canadian Anthony earlier  this weekend, going…

  5. Heat’s Spoelstra talked to Seattle Seahawks about winning

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:06 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Seattle Seahawks are NFL title contenders. That is a strange sentence to type, but it’s true. ProFootballTalk has them fourth in its preseason power rankings and they were probably the hottest team in football at the end of last season. So how do you get a team over the top? Ask someone who got…

  6. Dwyane Wade says he removed himself from Heat’s free-agent recruitment this offseason

    Aug 25, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    After winning their second straight championship last season, the Miami Heat weren’t exactly in a position to go out and reload in free agency, and in fact, it was actually a case of the opposite. Miami cut ties with Mike Miller using the amnesty provision built into the league’s new collective bargaining agreement, and by…

  7. Pelicans agree to non-guaranteed deal with Arinze Onuaku

    Aug 21, 2013, 11:23 PM EST

    Arinze Onuaku

    The Pelicans were one of the teams interested in adding Greg Oden to their roster for some frontcourt depth, and were even reportedly considering giving him two years guaranteed to make that happen. With Oden long gone and now a member of the Miami Heat, New Orleans has gone with a less expensive yet possibly…

  8. Greg Oden’s agent says one contract year is better than two for both Heat and his client

    Aug 19, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    Miami Heat via Twitter

    When Greg Oden initially agreed to join the Miami Heat this offseason, his contract was reported to be a two-year deal, with Oden holding a player option for that second season. Despite the risk of signing Oden to any deal given his injury history and the fact that he hasn’t played a minute in the…

  9. Dwyane Wade had shock treatment to help knee tendonitis

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    For the last two playoff runs, knee issues have hindered Dwyane Wade. He has some serious tendonitis in his knee and he hasn’t looked like himself, except in spurts. So this summer he went the shock treatment route. Yes, shock treatment — it is sending shock waves into the impacted knee or other area, very…

  10. Greg Oden’s Miami Heat contract only for a single season, according to report

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:33 AM EST

    Miami Heat via Twitter

    The Miami Heat made quite a few headlines when they were able to add Greg Oden on a minimum deal earlier this summer. The reigning NBA champions were lauded for the move considering they had locked up the former No. 1 pick for just the NBA’s veteran’s minimum, but it turns out the contract didn’t…

  11. Greg Oden chose Heat because they won’t need him early, dinner at Chili’s

    Aug 2, 2013, 10:53 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Chicago Bulls

    Former No. 1 overall pick Greg Oden chose the Miami Heat on Friday night in a move that was widely-anticipated for awhile, but never quite confirmed until the numerous reports erupted across the internet. Most speculated he would choose the Heat because they’re the back-to-back NBA champions, but the oft-injured center gave a few other…

  12. Report: Greg Oden to sign with Miami Heat

    Aug 2, 2013, 9:07 PM EST

    Greg Oden

    Greg Oden will be taking his talents to South Beach. The oft-injured center has decided that the Miami Heat are the best fit for his comeback bid and, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the former top-overall pick will sign a two-year deal with the team. The Heat apparently hedged their bets as the deal is…

  13. Report: Mutual interest between Heat, Greg Oden

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Greg Oden

    This summer, the Miami Heat need to get bigger. The Indiana Pacers are not going to shrink in the offseason and the Bulls’ size is one of the issues Miami has trouble with (and they get Derrick Rose back). The Heat would like to bring back Chris Anderson, plus they might go after free agent…

  14. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  15. Could LaMarcus Aldridge win MVP? Well, no, but let’s talk about it anyway

    Sep 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol

    Welcome to today’s “There’s a week left until training camp and I’d chew my own arm off if it meant I could blog about it” post. Blazers Edge posted a link to a story on Rip City Project on Saturday night. It contained the following passage regarding LaMarcus Aldridge and a possible MVP bid: It…

  16. Greg Oden sounds sensible, says to slow down comeback talk

    Aug 15, 2012, 3:45 PM EST

    Greg Oden

    There have been plenty of leaks from people around Greg Oden talking about how he wants to get healthy and get back in the game. The kind of leaks that always sound like an agent or people around him looking for a paycheck. Oden himself sounds far more reasonable. Oden spoke about his attempt at…

  17. The Inbounds: The Warriors become tank-proof

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors won’t be able to tank next year if they try. Well, OK, if they try they will. But it’s going to be a lot harder, because all of a sudden, their ten-man rotation isn’t just decent, it’s downright pretty good. Watching the Warriors’ moves over the past year has been an exercise in…

  18. Greg Oden had the German procedure Kobe had done on his knees

    May 19, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Greg Oden needs a break. A good break. He needs something, anything, with his health to go right. After so many knee surgeries I’ve lost count, Oden needs something to go his way to change his career and give him a second third fourth chance at living up to his potential. Everything that’s happened has…

  19. Greg Oden opens up about injuries, alcoholism, unfulfilled promise

    May 9, 2012, 3:37 PM EST

    greg_oden

    If you read one thing today, it should be the story about Greg Oden by Mark Titus at Grantland. It is fantastic. Click the link. Go read it, I’ll wait. Oden is an enigma, the poster child for the Blazers history of flamed out draft choices, the guy drafted before Kevin Durant, the guy with…

  20. Greg Oden’s agent says center still wants to try comeback

    Apr 6, 2012, 2:31 PM EST

    greg_oden

    It was accepted as conventional wisdom that after his third microfracture surgery earlier this year that Greg Oden was done. In the minds of most fans and team officials around the league he is done. But not in his own mind. That’s what Oden’s agent Chris Haynes told CSNNW.com. “No he’s not retiring. The only…

  21. Weekend Observations: 25 notes about the trade deadline

    Mar 18, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We’re thee days past the trade deadline. Some players have already landed and played a game with their new teams, some haven’t even arrived in their new destinations (does Hasheem Thabeet really have that busy of a calendar?). But we’re starting to recover from the shock of a still-nuts-if-quieter-than-last-year deadline that saw two coaches let go…

  22. Recapping a crazy day in Portland, where the Blazers began to clean house

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:44 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    This year’s Portland Trail Blazers campaign, to this point, has gone as badly as possible. Just before the NBA’s trade deadline passed at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, the team began the process of doing something about it. A flurry of activity went down in Portland today, and much of it set the team up…

  23. Portland released Greg Oden. End of long and winding road.

    Mar 15, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    In it’s trade deadline moves Thursday, Portland took on a number of players (with expiring contracts, to free up cap space to rebuild on the fly) but in doing so at the end of the day they had 17 guys on the 15-man roster. Cuts had to be made. One of those is Greg Oden.…

  24. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EST

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  25. Blazers release Armon Johnson to clear roster spot for Joel Przybilla

    Feb 27, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Armon+Johnson+wGE12f1KeCIm

    The team on the cusp of contention with a full roster is typically a bad omen for some deep-reserve player or another; in their efforts to improve via trade or free agency, teams almost inevitably have to release players as a space-creating endeavor, getting nothing in return but the freedom to go about their transaction…
