  1. LeBron picks Ohio State to win NCAA tournament, not a bad call

    Mar 15, 2011, 8:11 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    So is this about being true to his roots or true to his brand? Or a little of both? In a shock to nobody, the Ohio native is picking Ohio State to win the NCAA tournament, the Associated Press reports. James grew up a Buckeye’s fan. The team also wear’s his gear. James also admitted…

  2. Heat have best defensive game of season, rout Spurs

    Mar 14, 2011, 11:40 PM EDT

    Tony Parker Miami Heat San Antonio Spurs

    Since the first day of training camp — really, from the first day Miami’s triad of stars aligned — it’s been about the Heat defense. That was the question, the answer would determine how far they could go. Ten days ago, the Spurs beat the Heat by 30 when Miami’s defense couldn’t stop the Spurs…

  3. Tune in early to see if Heat can hang with Spurs late Monday

    Mar 14, 2011, 4:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs

    Last time the end of the game had all the suspense of a North Korean election. It was over before it started. Back on March 4, the Spurs walked out of the locker room draining threes while the Heat had just 12 first quarter points. Miami was down more than 20 less than 12 minutes…

  4. Heat do not regress against Grizzlies, instead pulverize Memphis into oblivion

    Mar 12, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    Sure, the Heat beat the Lakers on Thursday. But that was a desperation win for a team that was trying to stop the hemorrhage. Surely in their next game against Memphis, they would revert to the shaky, unreliable, fourth-quarter collapsing squad that has seemed so out of sync since the All-Star break, right? If anyone caught…

  5. Does Kobe’s explanation for his poor shot selection against the Heat actually make sense?

    Mar 11, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    kobe-wade-3-11

    The Heat’s victory over the Lakers on Thursday was a huge win for them, for a variety of reasons. Miami was getting killed by the national media for being a team that appeared to be coming apart at the seams, and one that couldn’t come through in close games. But the Heat snapped their five-game…

  6. Atlanta nightclub drops lawsuit against LeBron

    Mar 11, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    LeBron’s team of lawyers came in and made quick work of this. About 48 hours after a lawsuit was filed, an Atlanta nightclub amended it to take LeBron James out of it, the Associated Press reports (via CBS Eye on Basketball). The Opera nightclub says “the matter has been resolved,” and it actually was “misled”…

  7. Video: Wade steals the game away from Kobe, LeBron seals it

    Mar 11, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    LeBron James Miami Heat

    This was the play of the game in the Heat/Lakers showdown. Tied 88-88 with a minute and a half to go, Kobe Bryant tries to drive left on Dwyane Wade from the top of the key (triangle offense be damned the Lakers go isolation) and Wade strips the ball. Then after chasing it down he…

  8. Heat show some hints of balance

    Mar 11, 2011, 1:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat are still anything but a finished product. Their offense still relies far too much on LeBron and Wade freestyling out on the perimeter while the other watches from the opposite side of the floor. Their defense has been up-and-down lately. Mike Miller has been a huge disappointment, and Bosh has been far…

  9. Heat get some confidence, Kobe gets some fuel — everybody wins

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    Here is what you need to know about what Thursday night meant to the Lakers, and why Kobe Bryant has pushed his teams to two consecutive titles. Thirty minutes after the Heat defeated the Lakers 94-88 in a game where Kobe’s shot was off after the first quarter (8-21 overall after starting 4-4) and his…

  10. Phil Jackson no fan of Heat’s “Xbox” style of play

    Mar 10, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Because it wouldn’t be a big game for the Lakers if Phil Jackson didn’t take one last dig at the opponent… In the pregame media gathering in Miami, Jackson said he was not really a fan of the “Xbox games or whatever those games are when you play 1-on-1” offense style that Erik Spoelstra put…

  11. Pau Gasol can feel Chris Bosh’s pain

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    nba_bosh_gasol_576

    Chris Bosh wants the ball more. And he wants to be on the low block, not the elbow. He’s shooting more jumpers than ever before and he wants some shots at the rim. But also he wants some key touches go get in the flow of the game, not to be the guy watching Dwyane…

  12. Lakers at Heat: Five things to watch

    Mar 10, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Miami wants Christmas in March. The Heat’s Christmas Day beat down of the Lakers was their signature win of the season. A few months later the Heat are just desperate for any win. Getting one against the Lakers would be that much more sweet. But to the dismay of the Heat and four-year-olds everywhere, Christmas…

  13. Kobe on how the Lakers, Heat losing streaks are different

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:53 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Don’t know if you heard, but the Heat have lost five in a row. I think that made the news somewhere. Just like it did earlier this season when the Lakers lost four in a row. Or three in a row two other times. Now the Lakers have won 8 in a row heading into…

  14. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

  15. Are the Heat dribbling themselves into trouble?

    Mar 9, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh

    By my count today, there are 1,563,459 theories on what is wrong with the Heat, and twice as many stories about said theories. One of those jumped out at me — the Heat are dribbling too much. That’s what former Denver Nugget staffer and stats guru (he literally wrote the book), now ESPN staffer (and…

  16. Race to MVP still has five players in the running

    Mar 9, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers, Game 5

    Derrick Rose is not your MVP. Not yet anyway. Dwight Howard is still making his case, while LeBron James’ candidacy is limping like the Heat the last five games. But that could turn around. Right now, we don’t know who the MVP is. Which is a good thing. A real race down the stretch is…

  17. Struggling Heat find better offense but forget to play defense, lose again

    Mar 9, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    Since roughly last July, Heat fans have been asking — for the last week begging — to get LeBron James and Dwyane Wade active in the offense at the same time. They needed that long-promised spark. Tuesday night — in a game were the Heat clearly were gripping at times and playing their stars big…

  18. Are the Miami Heat the NBA’s Green Bay Packers?

    Mar 8, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    It’s national “Pile on the Miami Heat Week” after Sunday’s loss to Bulls. Somehow, one of the NBA’s best teams has become seen as a crying, soft collection of overpaid talent that can’t win when it matters. They’re doomed once the playoffs start, right? Just like the Green Bay Packers were doomed, Matt Scribbins of…

  19. Atlanta nightclub sues LeBron James

    Mar 8, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    Pretty much wherever LeBron James goes, there is a party. In many cities where the Heat play, there are parties at clubs, ones where LeBron is paid to attend (and his friends end up making some money on the deal, think the show Entourage). But now the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that a deal over…

  20. Chemistry proves difficult for Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Mar 8, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    The lack of chemistry with the Heat is evident on the court. Not just on the end-of-game isolations, but the fact that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James really play next to each other not with each other most of the time. There is not the kind of interaction you see between elite players on other…

  21. Erik Spoelstra on “crygate:” It’s the media’s fault. Of course.

    Mar 7, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Spoelstra_cringe

    You would think after having been on this Heat superteam treadmill for about nine months now, Erik Spoelstra would have figured out that the media coverage is pretty intense. And that everything you say is going to be dissected for meaning (that may not be there). And that if you say guys are crying in…

  22. There is so crying in basketball

    Mar 7, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat

    Some Heat players cried in the locker room after the loss Sunday. So what? The reaction from many around the league has been “I’ve been there.” Well, not in the Knicks locker room, they thought it was way funnier than anything Dane Cook ever said. But others took more muted tone. Even Stan Van Gundy,…

  23. Video: Watch for yourself the Heat postgame press conference

    Mar 7, 2011, 2:53 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    A lot has been made about Heat coach Erik Spoelstra saying guys were crying in the locker room, about what the Heat players said after their loss to the Bulls Sunday. You’ve read a lot of the quotes, but we thought you might like to see the words from the men themselves in context. Make…

  24. Spoelstra makes mistake in saying Heat players cry after loss

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat

    There is no crying in basketball. Well, there is, but we don’t really talk about it. Basketball is an emotional game. Well, it is if you care. So not for Andray Blatche most nights. But if you are invested — as any professional player should be — there will be wild emotional highs (we all…

  25. What does another Miami Heat loss tell us? That Chicago is good.

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    For many this s going to be about Miami losing again in a close game against an elite team (87-86 to the Bulls). About the Heat players crying in the locker room afterward. About how the Heat are now 1-16 this season on shots to tie or win in the final 10 seconds of the…
