Miami Heat Superteam

  1. Eddie House signs with Miami Heat – damn, they just got even better

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat need shooters. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are two of the very best at getting to the rim, Chris Bosh plays inside. Somebody has to space the floor besides Mike Miller. That somebody is Eddie House. House signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Heat, with the second year being a…

  2. How to nearly get you're a$@ kicked in Cleveland: Wear a LeBron Heat jersey

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:33 AM EDT

    Let’s be clear about this: You have to be a complete and total a——- to wear a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey in Cleveland. You get what’s coming. To complain about anything short of physical violence is like those people that buy a house under the flight path near an airport then complain about all…

  3. Winderman: Want to stop superstar defections? Toughen the new CBA.

    Jul 28, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    With the NBA’s issuance of its hands-off memorandum when it comes to teams attempting back-channels overtures to Chris Paul, it will be interesting to see how far the league goes to avoid the next in a list of superstar defections that began with Chris Bosh and LeBron James. How much does the league want to…

  4. Magic Johnson picks Lakers to win the title, Heat will get theirs later. Who didn't see that coming?

    Jul 27, 2010, 2:26 PM EDT

    San Francisco is cold in the summer. Mad Men is the best show on television (and is best enjoyed with a scotch in hand). BP will be the butt of late-night talk show jokes well past when it is funny. Justin Bieber is annoying. Some things are just givens. Same with this: Magic Johnson, part…

  5. Dirk Nowitzki: I would have considered Miami if LeBron, Wade had asked

    Jul 27, 2010, 1:08 PM EDT

    Nobody thought Dirk Nowitzki was going anywhere. He was technically a free agent but he loves Dallas and Dallas loves him. Especially Mark Cuban, and he had the biggest vote. So this was all a fait accompli… Or not. Nowitzki said he would have listened to offers where teams were closer to a title than…

  6. Flo-Rida video: "We already won"

    Jul 27, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    Ain’t no reason to play no more games… Rajon Rondo thinks there is. Same with Dwight Howard. And do you even need to ask Kobe what he thinks? The Heat will be very good. But they are going to have to earn a title. And it will be harder than they think.

  7. Raptors GM Colangelo insinuates Bosh mentally checked out at end of last season

    Jul 27, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Discrediting and ripping the big star that left town is a tradition in Toronto that goes back to the time of Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady. But old traditions are sometimes the most comforting, the thing that is needed. Take for example Raptors General Manager Bryan Colangelo insinuating Chris Bosh was already mentally checking out…

  8. Dwight Howard on the Heat: "They're not going to be the best team in the NBA next year"

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

      Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have been sharing notes in class, apparently. No shock that the top teams — led by the top competitors — see what happened in Miami and want to take it on. There’s no shortage of people around the league that want to knock the Heat down a notch or…

  9. Stephon Marbury: Heck yea I'd play in Miami

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    So maybe Stephon Marbury isn’t as far out on the crazy bell curve as we thought last week. Oh, he’s still a few standard deviations away from the norm, but he’s not lost all grip with reality. He says that he did not turn down a chance to play with the Heat and very much…

  10. Dwyane Wade on Jimmy Kimmel: LeBron owes Wade a few dinners

    Jul 23, 2010, 12:23 PM EDT

    My favorite part of this two-part interview: Wade saying he gets texts from players saying they want to come to Miami, but they forget to leave their name. Fun interview, in large part because Kimmel just crushes it.

  11. LeBron, Wade and Bosh could be worth $1 billion to South Florida

    Jul 22, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Go ahead and mock LeBron for taking the easy way out in Miami. Make the SuperFriends your most hated team. They don’t care, and the Miami Heat don’t care. Because money talks. The Lakers had (still hold?) the trophy for most hated team in the league, and they generate more money than any team in…

  12. Magic agrees with Jordan: 'That's not what we were about'

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:20 PM EDT

    Times are different. LeBron is teaming up with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Michael Jordan said the other day he wouldn’t have done that, he wanted to beat Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, not partner with them. Not everyone — including our own Ira Winderman — buys that. But Magic Johnson said he agrees with…

  13. Lil' Wayne says LeBron in Miami means Tha Block Is Hot

    Jul 20, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    Lil’ Wayne knows basketball. Lil’ Wayne isn’t like everybody else. So it shouldn’t be a shock his take on the LeBron James differs from plenty of people out there, but is also pretty smart. From Wayne’s Website (via SLAM): Oh Lebron! The recent move by the Miami Heat confirms that we will someday soon have…

  14. Penny Hardaway says he is not coming back to the NBA

    Jul 20, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    We were a little skeptical and sarcastic when we heard Penny Hardaway said he thought he could help the Heat. Okay, we’re never a little skeptical and sarcastic — we’re bloggers. But in a follow up interview with the Orlando Sentinel Hardaway sounds like he understands where he is right now. And that is not…

  15. Chris Bosh is unnoticed no more — and loving it

    Jul 20, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    See Chris Bosh on E! getting interviewed. See Chris Bosh as trendy Los Angeles restaurant. See Chris Bosh at the Hollywood premiere of “Inception.” See Chris Bosh enjoying the spotlight. LeBron James has been in the middle of it since he was a high school sophomore. Dwyane Wade led a team to a title in…

  16. Mario Chalmers, the Miami Heat point guard job is yours. Don't screw it up.

    Jul 19, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Mario Chalmers is a nice backup point guard. Yes, his shooting regressed his second year in the league, and yes he turns the ball over more than you’d like. But he’s a nice player. And because he’s on a cheap rookie contract, he He’s your new Miami Heat starting point guard. When you hear people…

  17. Jordan wouldn't have called up Bird, Magic to be teammates, he wanted to beat them

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

      Michael Jordan is still a competitor. Don’t get him wrong, he’d like the money the big free agents are getting now. But he says he wouldn’t have called up Larry Bird or Magic Johnson and wanted to team up. “I wanted to beat those guys.” Times are different now. For better or for worse,…

  18. Report: If LeBron's friends get jobs with the Heat, the NBA may investigate

    Jul 17, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    In Cleveland, LeBron’s posse had the run of the place. They were VIPs in the arena and in the city. Some of his friends even got jobs within the Cleveland organization. It is rumored that one of the things that really hurt Chicago in talks with LeBron James was a clear line in the sand…

  19. Penny Hardaway wants to play for the Heat. Hey, so do I.

    Jul 16, 2010, 1:33 PM EDT

    Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway last stepped on an NBA court three seasons ago. And he wasn’t good at all in the 16 games he played. He hasn’t done anything of quality on a court since 2004. It’s been a decade since he was good (and if you go back 15 years he was very, very good).…

  20. Wade on LeBron: `He didn't quit.''

    Jul 15, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade already has LeBron’s back. “He’s not a quitter,” Wade said. “He didn’t quit.” That’s what Wade told the AP Thursday, referring to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s post-decision rant about LeBron James, saying he quit in the Celtics playoffs series. Wade will have none of hat. “LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, guys like…

  21. Dwyane Wade says the team to beat is the Lakers

    Jul 14, 2010, 7:55 PM EDT

    Some pundits (and a few of the NBA’s advanced stats community) are pretty willing to hand the Larry O’Brien Trophy to the Miami Heat. The other 29 teams, not so much. Actually, make that 30. Because Dwyane Wade doesn’t even think the Heat are the favorites, as he said before his charity golf event to…

  22. Celtics Ray Allen on Miami: We're still the better team

    Jul 14, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    The Boston Celtics are the defending Eastern Conference champions. Miami, if you want that crown you are going to have to fight them for it. Ray Allen — who made it official yesterday inking his deal to stay a Celtic — said he and his teammates are ready to show Miami what team basketball looks…

  23. Pat Riley finally gets Juwan Howard 14 years later

    Jul 13, 2010, 7:49 PM EDT

    In the summer of 1996 — while you were watching a Charles Barkley-led Dream Team III roll to a gold medal in Atlanta — Juwan Howard was a rising star in the NBA. He was giving the Bullets 22 and 9 and he was just going into his third year in the league. And Pat…

  24. Miami is closer to filling out its roster than you think — and you know these guys

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:24 PM EDT

    Mike Miller has now agreed to terms with the Miami Heat, according to our man Ira Winderman down in Miami. That brings the Heat roster up to six signed — Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem and now Miller. That’s the top six of a contender. But how do they fill…

  25. Winderman: Tampering? That's a bigger fantasy than the one LeBron/Wade/Bosh had

    Jul 12, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    First there are negotiations. Then there are signings. And then there are recriminations. On that last count, we thought it wouldn’t get any more ludicrous than Dan Gilbert’s opening statement, and it certainly was a doozy. But this tampering talk might just top it. Look, players talk, players plan, players dream. You want to keep…
