  1. Game of the night: The running of the Celtics

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:30 AM EDT

    PPierce_celebrate

    Boston is supposed to be the old men. Miami is supposed to be the young bucks unstoppable in transition. Then why is it that that all night long Boston was the team pushing the ball in transition, getting some easy buckets on the run? Miami was slowed, hesitant. It speaks to where these teams are…

  2. Miami ready to push back on physical play

    Nov 11, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The first edition of the “how to beat Miami” book is out around the league — and there is a whole chapter on “pushing them around.” Being physical. Miami is ready to push back, they told ESPN. “You have to anticipate that teams are going to be physical with us … are going to try…

  3. Miami still figuring out how to use Chris Bosh

    Nov 11, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Every fanbase seems to pick someone on the team to be their whipping boy — the guy whose fault it is, even when it isn’t. Someone to be the lightning rod of fan wrath. In Miami, it seems to have become Chris Bosh. And with the now national Heat fan base, he has taken incoming…

  4. Now even Miami hotels have NBA fever

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Behind the Scenes

    NBA teams have been coming to Miami since 1988. It’s a favorite stop for many of the players because… well, if I have to explain that to you then you were never 22. It’s Miami, we’ll leave it at that. But now, everybody there cares about the NBA. Even the hotels. Okay, the hotels only…

  5. Game of the night: Paul Millsap goes Reggie Miller and the Jazz beat the Heat

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, C.J. Miles

    It is still one of the greatest basketball highlights out there — Reggie Miller scoring eight points in nine seconds against the Knicks. Paul Millsap kind of looked like Reggie at the end of regulation in the Jazz’s Monday night’s game against the Heat — a much, much thicker version of Miller, but the unbelievable…

  6. What’s going on with the Heat offense?

    Nov 9, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The 5-2 Miami Heat are certainly not a bad offensive team. In fact, they are a very good offensive team — as of today, they are 5th in the NBA in offensive efficiency. Considering how good the Heat have been defensively (they’re #1 in defensive efficiency), Miami could certainly make a championship run without significantly…

  7. Winderman: “Respect for the Game” not easy to define, even for LeBron, Terrence Williams

    Nov 8, 2010, 7:41 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    While much has been made of the NBA’s crackdown on “respect for the game,” with the league’s whistle-blowing onslaught of technical fouls, the sought-after upgrade in decorum is actually more about respect for referees. But what exactly is respect for the game? Is it sideshow antics during games that seemingly make players bigger than their…

  8. LeBron says Heat are not showboating. Really? They should do more.

    Nov 8, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    It’s certainly a show when the Miami Heat come to town — a high-flying acrobatic circus of shots and athleticism. Which has led a few to suggest that the Heat are about the show more than anything. That they are showing off. LeBron James will have none of that, as he told the Ira Winderman…

  9. Chris Bosh: “I get a little lost out there.”

    Nov 8, 2010, 10:20 AM EDT

    Bosh_Murphy

    It’s a process. An adjustment. There are moments that make you forget that Miami has really only been playing together for a few weeks, that they are still growing and learning. But they are 4-2 because they are still learning, because there are nights where it does not all click. And the guy it is…

  10. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  11. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…

  12. Game of the Night: Where CP3 was better than the Big Three

    Nov 6, 2010, 2:18 AM EDT

    CPaul_Heat

    Most Saturdays you’re not going to get a Game of the Night, because that could make us work on a Friday night rather than enjoy another Guinness. But there were so many notes on my plate from the Hornets beating the Heat that it cried out for the space. On that note, I put down…

  13. Cleveland tells LeBron what he should do: “Be who you said you’d be.”

    Nov 5, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/NvgD9HNTMkM?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    LeBron had to know this was coming, because: 1) He asked a question without answering it; 2) Clevelanders are still bitter. So here you go, the people of Cleveland respond to LeBron’s Rise ad.

  14. Heat fly jerk…er, fan down to Miami for a game…or not

    Nov 4, 2010, 11:30 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:30 pm: The Miami Heat have changed their mind. Matthew Bellamy is not going to a Heat game unless he pays his own way. Here is the team statement, via The Heat Index: “An invitation was prematurely extended to [Bellamy] prior to the approval process being completed,” according to a Heat team statement released…

  15. LeBron James misses practice with shin bruise

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, Heat forward LeBron James did not participate in Thursday’s practice because of a shin bruise James suffered while the Heat were playing the Nets last Sunday: LeBron James sat out the Miami Heat’s practice Thursday with what he calls a deep right shin bruise. But coach Erik Spoelstra plans…

  16. LeBron is in for 2012 Olympics; Wade and Bosh unsure

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Right now, Team USA for the 2012 Olympics in London looks like Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and… LeBron James. Those three alone could go 3 on 5 and get out of group play. LeBron is in, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. The other two/thirds of the Miami triad are not deciding yet.…

  17. South Park spoofs LeBron ad

    Nov 4, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

    Well, that didn’t take long. Already a politician and now South Park have taken on the LeBron James ad that is less than two weeks old. This ties in LeBron’s ad and the BP oil spill, plus the South Park storyline that if you really cared about you would already have watched the full episode.…

  18. Isiah Thomas to the Heat: embrace the hate

    Nov 3, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Hating the Miami Heat has almost become the biggest bandwagon of the NBA season. Not that there isn’t some real venom for the Heat — and LeBron James in particular, but it seems more trendy than genuine for many. Still, it’s out there. And if the Heat want the advice of former Detroit Bad Boy…

  19. On the pseudo-campaigning for LeBron James as Defensive Player of the Year

    Nov 3, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The media megaphone gives NBA players, coaches, front office officials, and owners a chance to call and respond. We’ve seen players poke at one another both jokingly and pointedly, coaches attempt to jar their players, opponents take shots from across the wall, and almost every conceivable combination of parties make comments of every ilk. In…

  20. LeBron ready for revenge on Tolliver for spoof; Tolliver somehow surprised

    Nov 1, 2010, 6:31 PM EDT

    Tolliver_wolves

    Tuesday night, the Miami Heat will destroy the Minnesota Timberwolves. At least that’s the expectation. And LeBron James will get to check off one name on his revenge list — Anthony Tolliver. That’s what he’s saying, Tolliver is surprised by all this. Here’s the backstory. You probably remember a little something in July where James…

  21. Ohio politician spoofs LeBron ad. ‘Tis the season.

    Nov 1, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/maqXcNi31bo?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    Lee Fisher is going to lose tomorrow. Election day comes and he is 22 points back in the polls for his senate race in Ohio, and he is out of money in his campaign. I know next to nothing about his politics or his opponents, but I know there are no 22-point shots. But Fisher…

  22. Knicks sell out season ticket inventory, revenue up by $21 million

    Nov 1, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    Stories that the NBA Players Association clipped and saved this morning include… The New York Knicks have sold out their allotment of season tickets this season, increasing revenue for the team by about $21 million , according to the Sports Business Journal. When the NBA season began last week, the Knicks had sold more than…

  23. Game of the Weekend: The Heat are starting to figure it out.

    Oct 31, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    James_chalk

    The takeaway from the Miami Heat’s throttling of the Nets is not that the Heat cruised to a 101-78 win. Some version of that is going to happen a lot this season. The takeaway is that the Heat are getting better. They are figuring out what works, they are correcting their mistakes. The fact they…

  24. LeBron reiterates: “I think I would do it a little different.”

    Oct 31, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    jamespreseason

    He’s said this before, it’s ground we’ve covered. But because today he and the Heat were in New Jersey — game one of the “We were scored by LeBron James tour” 2010 — it came up again. Would LeBron handle things differently? Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel had his answer. “If I had a…

  25. What is with the Heat’s hand gesture?

    Oct 30, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Heat_handgesture

    Did you see this last night? As the Miami Heat were destroying the Orlando Magic they kept making the hand gesture you see in the picture to each other. What does it mean? Shut your mouth. That’s it, according to Mark Jackson on the ESPN broadcast. “Shut your mouth.” Both a reminder to the team…
