  2. Three quick thoughts from the Miami Heat scrimmage

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:52 PM EDT

    Here is the only thing that really matters from the Miami Heat’s televised (NBATV) intersquad scrimmage Friday night: 225 service men and women got to watch some big stars up close and for free. Nothing else really can be counted on to translate into the regular season. The game was full of sloppy at times.…

    Oct 1, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Well, the chances of Charles Barkley and TNT getting a one-on-one sit down with LeBron just fell to below zero… Charles Barkley went on WIP in Philadelphia with Howard Eskin and Ike Reese, primarily to talk about football because… sorry, don’t have an answer for that one. But Barkley talked McNabb coming back to Philly…

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    LeBron — who you can be pretty sure did not pay for his Power Beats even though he could afford it much more easily than you — and Dr. Dre take part in a pretty amusing new campaign for the headphones (or ear buds or whatever you want to call them). http://www.youtube.com/v/QiGNvZ8YTos?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0x999999

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    Kobe’s the man, doesn’t matter what side of the pond you are on. The NBA released the top jerseys sold in Europe and Kobe Bryant tops the list. As he does in the United States. And China.

    Sep 29, 2010, 10:36 PM EDT

  8. NBA Season Preview: The Miami Heat

    Sep 29, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    Last season: 47-35, fifth seed in the East. Their reward for that? The Boston Celtics in the first round. Ouch. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who is one of the best young minds in the game and a Pat Riley protégé. Which means Riley is not going to go Stan Van Gundy on him this season…

    Sep 29, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    Hey LeBron James, not only do you have to lead your just thrown-together team to an NBA title, can you average a triple-double for the season while doing it? I mean, Oscar Robertson averaged that in 1962, and today’s game is pretty much exactly like that, right? You can totally do it. Hey, but no…

  10. Winderman: Heat not hosting your ordinary training camp

    Sep 28, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    So how do you get to the Heat’s secluded training camp in the Florida Panhandle? Well, from most places, you get there by connecting through Atlanta.

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Sep 26, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Sep 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    The Heat have new fans coming out of the woodwork, but the massive backlash against the assemblage of talent in Miami has been absolutely impressive.

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

  22. Overtly complain about a call, get a technical. It's now the law.

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant does it. LeBron James does it. Kevin Garnett does it. Much of the league does it. Rasheed Wallace did it like he was playing down at Venice Beach in Los Angeles.

    Sep 23, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Knicks decision maker Donnie Walsh would love to get in on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, but he doesn’t have all the chips needed to get a seat at the table. He doesn’t have a first round draft pick (well, not until 2014 anyway, and nobody wants to wait that long). A pick like the one…
