  1. Dwyane Wade to play Friday night for Heat

    Apr 8, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    After missing one game due to a bruised thigh bruise, Dwyane Wade should be back Friday night to take on Charlotte. Our man Ira Winderman, writing for the Sun Sentinel, sums it up well in a tweet. Erik Spoelstra said Dwyane Wade (thigh) is “probable” for tonight against the Bobcats. In Heat parlance that means…

  2. PBT Friday morning one liners

    How the Golden State Warriors are Barack Obama. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra talks distractions. What could he possibly be referring to? There’s some real concern in Boston about these Celtics. I’d say we said the same thing last year heading into the playoffs, but this feels different, doesn’t it? In the NBA, the iPad is everywhere.…

  3. Bulls make it clear — right now they are better than Celtics

    Apr 8, 2011, 1:16 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Kevin Garnett

    If Chicago and Boston meet in the playoffs, it will be in the second half of May. Conference finals time. Things can change and evolve in a month. But right now Chicago is the better team. Clearly. And they enter the playoffs with a lot of confidence. It wasn’t just that they beat Boston Thursday…

  4. LeBron James, Erik Spoelstra now BFFs. Sort of.

    Apr 7, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    It has taken nearly 10 months, but LeBron James and Erik Spoelstra finally get each other. That timetable is understandable, I’ve been married for nine years and my wife still doesn’t get me half the time. Building a relationship takes time, and Spoelstra and James had to do it under the brightest of spotlights. Both…

  5. LeBron James’ mom arrested for assault at Miami hotel

    Apr 7, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Police

    UPDATE 12: 50 pm: According to the Associated Press, this was indeed a confrontation with the valet at the hotel, and it took place around 4:30 in the morning. Nothing good happens at 4:30 in the morning. Apparently she slapped the valet after he dared turn her car off after it had idled for 30…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs get top seed, Heat slip back

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    What you missed while barking at a police dog…. Bucks 90, Heat 85: No Dwyane Wade in this one due to his thigh bruise, and the Heat are now 3-2 when he sits. It didn’t help that Chris Bosh floated around the perimeter this game (except during the Heat’s one fourth quarter run, not so…

  7. Playoff picture starts to come into focus (Heat may not like it)

    Apr 7, 2011, 2:03 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    Not everything is clear to me. Like how Rebecca Black has a career, for one. Or how Criminal Minds has been on television for so long. But the NBA playoff picture? That started to come into focus Wednesday and the Spurs like what they see. Miami, not so much. So here is a quick run…

  8. Wade out, James Jones to start against Bucks

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    Jones_James

    Heat coach Erik Spolestra has announced that shooting guard Dwayne Wade will miss tonight’s Heat-Bucks game due to a sore thigh. Three-point marksman James Jones will start in Wade’s place. Jones obviously can’t replace Wade, but the Heat do play well when he is in the starting lineup — Mike Bibby, Udonis Haslem, and Zydrunas…

  9. “The LeBrons” (you know, animated LeBron) has arrived

    the_lebrons_family

    “The LeBrons” — now with een more LeBron! Below is the first episode of The LeBrons, the animated spinoff of a commercial. Because if there is one thing we need more of its spin offs of commercials, like turning the GEICO caveman into a sitcom. How’d that work out? But this is going to be…

  10. Elton Brand has been playing with hand fracture

    Apr 5, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    BRAND_ELTON

    The New York Times’ Jonathan Abrams has the story: Elton Brand, who is experiencing a resurgent season with the surprising Philadelphia 76ers, has played nearly a month with a fracture in his left hand. The fracture was originally disclosed as an injury that would not prohibit Brand from playing, apparently out of concern that some…

  11. Dwyane Wade may miss games due to thigh injury

    Apr 5, 2011, 11:58 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Dwyane Wade crashes to the ground more than a two-year-old on a playground. He flies into the lane and plays with a reckless abandon that means he ends up crashing to the ground, a lot. Which means a lot of bumps and bruises. And he plays through them. So when he says the pain from…

  12. Expect to hear John Calipari’s name for NBA openings

    Apr 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Final Four - Kentucky v UConn

    Last year, when LeBron James had yet to decide where his talents should go (at least officially), Kentucky coach John Calipari was a hot name. There were reports that William Wesley — the behind-the-scenes power broker now working for CAA — was trying to sell LeBron and Calipari as a package to the Bulls and…

  13. Just 10 days left in the regular season, get your playoff seedings here

    Apr 4, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    The slog that can be the NBA regular season is almost over — you can see the playoffs from where you’re standing. Well, not from where the Cavs and Timberwolves are standing, but a majority of teams can. But things are not settled. So with 10 days left until the playoffs, here is a little…

  14. Video: LeBron James made some video game plays against Nets

    Apr 4, 2011, 9:18 AM EDT

    Nets Heat Basketball

    LeBron James started out hot Sunday. The Nets don’t begin to have defender that can slow him so James exploited them for 15 first-quarter points and the Heat raced out to an early lead. Some of those plays were pretty spectacular. We bring you some of those, just as a reminder of what James can…

  15. If we can stop laughing, we’ll tell you about the Heat being interested in Eddy Curry

    Apr 2, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    We’re going to get through this with a straight face. Or at least as far as we can. You ready? Yahoo! Sports reports Saturday that the Miami Heat are strongly considering signing free agent center Eddy Curry to help with the playoff run. … Hold it in. Curry played, well, was on roster for the…

  16. Mike Bibby has made Heat’s defense much worse

    Apr 1, 2011, 8:16 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    In Atlanta, there are a lot of Hawks fans nodding their heads. The Miami Heat’s defense is much worse when Mike Bibby is on the floor. Not just worse, much worse. Tom Haberstroh crunched the numbers for the Heat Index at ESPN. When point guard Mike Bibby has been on the floor for the Heat,…

  17. Juwan Howard plans to appeal $35,000 fine

    Apr 1, 2011, 5:14 PM EDT

    Juwan Howard Melee

    The fallout from Wednesday’s Heat-Wizards fracas that led to three ejections and a one-game suspension for John Wall continues. According to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Heat forward plans to appeal the $35,000 fine he received for pushing JaVale McGee after John Wall and Zyrundas Ilgauskas were both issued flagrant-2 fouls: “I…

  18. Wall suspended one game for Ilgauskas altercation

    The league has announced that Wizards guard John Wall will be suspended one game for his role in an altercation that caused Wall, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, and Juwan Howard to all be ejected from Wednesday’s Wizards-Heat game. Here is the league’s statement on the matter: Wall has been suspended for his Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two, whichincluded…

  19. LeBron joins long list of big men complaining about lack of foul calls

    Mar 31, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    LeBron James is one of the NBA’s strongest men — if you’re going to foul him and not give up the and-1, you better make it a good one. And even if you do foul him, no call may be made as he just powers through you. James joined a long, storied list of the…

  20. Video: JaVale McGee swats away Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade

    Mar 31, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee block

    This is how you defend the rim. We keep telling you that in today’s NBA — with no handchecking on the perimeter — you have to have a guy who can protect the rim. Exactly like this. JaVale McGee is textbook on Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Not that it helped the Wizards in this…

  21. Video: John Wall throws punch at Big Z, leads to ejections

    Mar 30, 2011, 10:52 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    We already told you what happened, but you should see it for yourself (via our friends at CSNWashington.com) Zydrunas Ilgauskas had the ball in the high post guarded by John Wall (on a little scramble play, obviously that was not the regular matchup). Ilgauskas used his elbow to create a little space, Wall was trying…

  22. LeBron James says Derrick Rose is MVP

    Mar 30, 2011, 9:49 PM EDT

    derrick Rose bulls

    I’m not sure there’s really an MVP debate, at least one where the outcome is in doubt. Derrick Rose is going to win it. Like it or not. Complain it’s about the narrative and not the play, or counter Rose is clearly the man leading the best team in the game, make no mistake about…

  23. John Wall, Juwan Howard, Zydrunas Ilgauskas all ejected

    Mar 30, 2011, 8:07 PM EDT

    Wall_John

    John Wall, Juwan Howard, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas have all just been ejected from the Heat-Wizards game. The initial incident occurred when Ilgauskas was holding the ball in the high post. Wall was attempting to swipe at the ball, and Ilgauskas gave Wall two quick elbows to the face for his trouble. In retaliation, Wall fired…

  24. Video: Cooking for LeBron, he eats better than you

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    I love cooking shows. Love. Them. Honestly, when basketball isn’t on my television, it’s a cooking show. Maybe some cool old-school Iron Chef (from Japan, the American version is a poor imitation), maybe just Jamie Oliver cooking at home. I miss the Two Fat Ladies. As cooking videos go, this one is not going to…

  25. Cavaliers win could be blueprint for Heat playoff trouble

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis and his swagger are a great storyline and a Heat killer. The cathartic feeling for Cavaliers fans makes headlines and the legions of Heat haters happy. Heat fans will rightfully counter this is one relatively meaningless game. And they’re right, this one game doesn’t matter. Rather, what should worry Heat fans is how…
