Miami Heat Superteam

  1. LeBron James says he tried to repay Cleveland on the court, is ready for change

    Sep 13, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Does LeBron James owe Cleveland anything? LeBron has been at the center of the NBA universe this summer, but has said very little personally to the media (we’re not really counting The Decision as hard-hitting questions). There are a lot of questions to be asked, and Lang Whitaker of SLAM covered many of them a…

  2. LeBron James at point guard? Dwyane Wade? Miami is thinking about it.

    Sep 10, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers may be the official Miami Heat starting point guard come Oct. 26, but as we’ve said before his role will not be the same as Rajon Rondo’s or Deron Williams or most other point guards. That’s because both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade like to create with the ball in their hands. They…

  3. Jarrett Jack wonders about Miami's chemistry: Someone will happily be option three?

    Sep 9, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    The “is this Miami trio really going to work?” questions are out there. This has worked before in other places — from Boston and the Lakers in the 80s, Boston in the 1960s, even today’s Celtics — because guys were willing to make the sacrifice on the court. There has to be give, three guys…

  4. LeBron's search for family, stability led him to Miami

    Sep 4, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    LeBron James decision was not a simple one. Strip away the show and the made-for-media presentations the other teams had to put on — the things for which James has been heavily criticized — and you get to a decision that was about the core of who LeBron James is. There were two key factors…

  5. LeBron James, Mo Williams talk it out

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    In the wake of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after LeBron James made his announcement about his talents, one set of tweets in particular stood out: Cavaliers teammate Mo Williams — one of LeBron’s closer friends on the team — felt hurt and said so in his twitter account. ”We were so damn…

  6. Chris Bosh says loyalty is for suckers

    Aug 23, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh clearly went to school on Kevin Garnett.   KG stayed loyal for years to Minnesota while the quality of players around him disintegrated. Until the losing got to be too much. Eventually he forced his way out, landed in Boston with other superstars, won a title and now goes on the record saying…

  7. What will LeBron's game look like in Miami?

    Aug 23, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Let’s play a game. Forget that LeBron James’ decision to join the Miami Heat via an hour-long ESPN special was one of the biggest PR disasters in recent memory. Forget everything about how James’ choice to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami rather than stay in Cleveland or go to Chicago or New…

  8. Paul Pierce wonders if Miami's big three can make the sacrifices Boston's stars did

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    In the summer of 2007, the Boston Celtics put together three superstars to form a championship team, not completely different than Miami did this summer. However Boston’s stars were older and could see the end of their careers, they were past their physical primes but still were (and are) high caliber players. They were guys…

  9. Stan Van Gundy: Heat roster better than any of Jordan's Bulls rosters

    Aug 18, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    No doubt the Heat are going to be good. Very good. But expectations some comparisons and expectations are getting a little ridiculous. Stan Van Gundy is happy to feed the mania, as he did with Dan LeBatard on 790 the Ticket in Miami: “If I look at what the Bulls did winning 72 games and…

  10. Chris Bosh is cool with you hating the Heat

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:14 PM EDT

    It’s trendy to hate the Heat, what with their ripping the hearts out of Cleveland to form the Superfriends. Trust me, plenty of people around the league have the hate, some going so far as to say the only thing that could ever get them to root for the Lakers in the finals would be…

  11. Jerry Buss likes his Lakers chances against Miami

    Aug 18, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    It’s trendy now to say you didn’t watch “The Decision” because you had better things to do. Wash your hair, read “Ulysses” or whatever. But mature people like Shaq didn’t watch it. Well, Jerry Buss did, as he told ESPNLosAngeles.com during a Lakers charity poker event. “[It was] mixed emotions. My feeling was that he…

  12. Hall of Famers not giving Heat the title. Yet.

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:39 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat are going to be very good. Nobody questions that. This team is going to win a lot of game this year. Put LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team and you’re going to get that. A title… not so fast. Hall of Famers in Springfield, Mass., for the induction…

  13. Barkley isn't done taking shots at LeBron, says he has to win multiple titles

    Aug 13, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Yesterday Charles Barkley called LeBron James a punk for daring to do what Barkley never did and team up with other superstars to get a ring. Because I guess never reaching your goal but falling short by yourself is noble. Whatever. Barkley’s not done, though. LeBron has to win multiple titles or this is a…

  14. Charles Barkley is on LeBron's list now, calls the decision a "punk move"

    Aug 12, 2010, 5:01 PM EDT

    It’s August, but Charles Barkley is in mid-season form. He went on ESPN Radio in Dallas Thursday (via FanHouse) and aligned himself with the many people who now see the Miami Heat as the league’s villains. And he’s having none of LeBron’s “taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me” either. “I heard about…

  15. If you want to see the Heat play, it's going to cost you

    Aug 12, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    Hate them all you want — you want to see them. The Heat are in demand ‚ their gear is topping NBA sales charts (especially the LeBron No. 6 Heat jersey). And people want to see the Heat. Television ratings for their games will top what the NBA has done since Jordan suited up. If…

  16. Chris Bosh was "playing with people's emotions." And enjoying it.

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh is loving the spotlight. After years of feeling ignored and underappreciated in Toronto he’s now showing up on Regis & Kelly and doing a New York media blitz. He’s big time. And he’s playing it up — and playing with your emotions, as he told the New York Daily News. “If you think…

  17. For your winter reading: "The Miami Heat's Hijacking of the NBA" by Ric Bucher

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    It’s pretty easy to picture your local Barnes & Nobel changing up the little display in front currently covered with love him/hate him Barack Obama books and putting up love them/hate them Miami Heat books. The first of what should be many will be coming from the pen, er, computer of ESPN’s Ric Bucher. According…

  18. Bosh: "We have to win a championship"

    Aug 11, 2010, 4:45 PM EDT

    They may not yet realize just how hard it will be (well, one of them does), but Miami’s big three gets what the expectations they have created are: “We have to win a championship,” forward Chris Bosh said…. “I think so, because of the situation we’ve brought to ourselves,” he said. “With this group that…

  19. Winderman: Nine games the Heat could lose you didn't expect

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Even before the NBA released its complete schedule Tuesday, there were plenty of logical assumptions that could have been made about the longshot odds of the revamped Miami Heat matching the 72-10 of the 1995-96 Bulls. There are, after all, four games apiece against the Celtics and Magic, as well as two against the Lakers,…

  20. Video: LeBron speaks in Akron, expressing his love for Cleveland

    Aug 8, 2010, 6:18 PM EDT

      Here’s the video, LeBron James speaking in Akron at his annual bike-a-thon for charity. He says all the right things. Clevelanders would like to remind you that actions speak louder than words.

  21. Maverick Carter defends LeBron's Akron letter as having nothing to do with Cleveland

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    LeBron James is an Akron man. Born and raised. Still lives there. Do not confuse that with being a Cleveland man. He played for the Cavaliers, but don’t go thinking Akron and Cleveland are one in the same. Well, Clevelanders may consider Akron a suburb but the feeling is not mutual. The fine folks of…

  22. Add Kendrick Perkins to the list of players not backing down from Miami

    Jul 30, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat are going to be a regular season force — with little time to prepare for them (and there is little time in the regular season for teams) it will be hard to find and execute the little things that could slow LeBron, Wade and Bosh. But what about in the playoffs? In…

  23. With roster in place, who do the Heat dress every night?

    Jul 30, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Pat Riley is gifted with supernatural powers. I don’t know that for a fact, but it seems the most logical explanation for how the Miami Heat not only landed all three of the biggest free agents on the market, but also filled out the roster with quality players. Now the more practical question becomes: Who…

  24. Chris Bosh "put his heart and soul" into Toronto

    Jul 30, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    Toronto General Manager Bryan Colangelo said Chris Bosh “checked out” at the end of his time in Toronto, when the Chicago Bulls caught the fading Raptors for the eighth playoff spot. Chris Bosh went on Rogers Sportsnet Thursday and fired back, saying he “put his heart and soul” into the Raptors and that what Colangelo…

  25. Mikhail Prokhorov sticks up for LeBron

    Jul 29, 2010, 4:06 PM EDT

    LeBron has plenty of people watching his back, including the editors at ESPN.com. And Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Who wrote a letter to the USA Today. The players are signed, the “Decision” is made, but the passions around this year’s extraordinary class of NBA free agents refuses to die down. What surprises me is the…
