Miami Heat

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

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

    Mar 30, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    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…

  7. 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…

  8. Heat don’t expect Udonis Haslem back anytime soon

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_haslem1_sw_576-thumb-250x140-15204.jpg for post 2933

    The Miami Heat could really use Udonis Haslem. They could use the depth, the strength inside, the rebounding, the defense. The Heat had hoped to get Haslem back from the torn ligament in his left foot by the start of the playoffs, but before tonight’s game in Cleveland Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Haslem wouldn’t…

  9. LeBron’s entourage gets turned away from Cleveland arena

    Mar 29, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    There was a time — just a mere 11 months ago — when LeBron James and his crew had the run of Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Some say they ran the place. If they wanted an ice sculpture of a Harley-Davidson waiting on their arrival for each game, it was there. No more. When…

  10. Stan Van Gundy is sick of the Knicks/Heat hype

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Well, at least Stan Van Gundy will not get fined for ripping David Stern this time. But we did want to bring you his mini-rant before his Magic — minus Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick — went out and lost to the Knicks. He spoke for a lot of NBA fans (and team employees) outside…

  11. Cavaliers bring out big gun… well Baron Davis, for Heat

    Mar 29, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    There has been less hype, maybe there will be less venom when the Heat return to Cleveland for the second time this Tuesday. The game was not even a sell out hours before tip off. Maybe it will be more basketball and less circus. We can hope, anyway. But make no mistake the Cavs want…

  12. LeBron James not worried about return trip to Cleveland

    Mar 28, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    In December, LeBron James got the reception you’d expect from the fans in Cleveland. Then he and his new Heat teammates destroyed the Cavaliers as you’d expect. Tuesday night, LeBron returns to Cleveland and while he does not expect a warm greeting with roses thrown on the path he walks, he doesn’t think it will…

  13. Winderman: Battier a big loss for Rockets in playoff race

    Mar 28, 2011, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The reasoning might have been right, but perhaps the target was wrong. Few approaches at the NBA trading deadline are considered as egregious as trading away your team’s chances at a playoff berth. So when Michael Jordan traded away (although “gave away” would be closer to the truth) Gerald Wallace to the Trail Blazers at…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Heat were setting records (but not playing defense)

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:30 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    What you missed while watching the last days of Spring Training… The Spurs falling to the Grizzlies (and picking up another injury in the process) plus the Mavericks knocking off (and out?) the Suns are our games of the night. Heat 125, Rockets 119: We got to see a little bit of history from Miami’s…

  15. LeBron and Wade take in a tennis match

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Perhaps you’re wondering what far-stretched angle I’m going to use to justify blogging about a LeBron James-Dwyane Wade tennis match. Well, first, here’s Wade talking about taking the King to the Sony Ericsson Open: The Miami Heat stars showed up at the Sony Ericsson Open to be part of a coin toss before world No.…

  16. Zydrunas Ilgauskas to return to Heat Sunday

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Friday we let you know of reports indicating Zydrunas Ilgauskas was on his way back to recovery from that grotesque foot injury he sustained when he stepped on a nail. Now comes word that ESPN reports Ilgauskas is expected to return to action Sunday against Houston for the first time in eight games. Ilgauskas’ return…

  17. Iggy says LeBron has peeled back on his intensity, physically

    Mar 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala was asked Friday if he’d noticed any changes in LeBron James‘ game since joining the Heat. His answer wasn’t what you’d expect: “I’ve only noticed one small thing,” Iguodala said before taking time to find the right words. “I shouldn’t say he doesn’t jump as high, because he does jump as high,” Iguodala…

  18. Wade’s stat stuffing brings Heat closer to 2nd seed

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Heat brought it in the fourth against what you may not know is a surprisingly good Philadelphia 76ers squad in a 111-99 win. Sure, they’re not going to be headlining any Sunday afternoon nationally televised romps, but Doug Collins has put together a good team with solid chemistry, role players that can produce and…

  19. Spurs sign Da’Sean Butler for remainder of season

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:34 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Kentucky

    The Spurs have decided to take a smart, calculated risk on Da’Sean Butler, and have signed the free agent forward, reports Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy on twitter. Just a year ago Butler was leading West Virginia into the NCAA Final Four — where he blew out his ACL against Duke. Teams are leery of guys coming…

  20. Heat’s Spoelstra regrets saying players were crying

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    In a sign that Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is still has a ways to go in being media savvy, he didn’t regret saying that there were players in tears in the locker room after a loss to Chicago the second he said it. But he has come to regret saying it. Spoelstra was on the…

  21. Derrick Rose will win MVP. There are better choices.

    Mar 24, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    Stan Van Gundy is right — Derrick Rose is going to win the MVP award this year. He has everybody including Michael Jordan’s endorsement. Influential media members are lining up behind him. The question is: Does he deserve it? Or, more accurately, do others deserve it more? You can make a good argument for Rose…

  22. Video: Rodney Stuckey makes a poster with Chris Bosh in it

    Mar 24, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    That headline kind of bothers me because nobody actually has posters anymore, do they? Wallpapers on their iPhone maybe, but not posters. But if you were still making posters, this is exactly what you would want. Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey starts his drive from the top of the lane and Chris Bosh is just a little…

  23. Heat’s Anthony breaks nose in two places, will not miss time

    Mar 23, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    JAnthony_jumper

    Joel Anthony thinks he’s a hockey player. The Heat’s shot blocking center off the bench (the Heat have about 48 centers on the bench at last count) broke his nose in two when Miami faced Atlanta after being head-butted by Zaza Pachulia, reports Michael Wallace of ESPN on twitter. Pachulia head butted Wallace and caused…

  24. Video: LeBron James plays the drums, Pat Riley dances

    Mar 22, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

    Super Bowl XLIV

    Because if we have to watch Pat Riley dance, everybody should have to suffer the same fate. The fine people at Miami Heat blog HotHotHoops were out at the Heat’s Family Festival and shot this video, which begins with LeBron James on the drums (hard to tell, but he seems to be fine). The Riley…

  25. LeBron’s Q score is better, but still not very good

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    According to Darren Rovell of CNBC.com, LeBron James’ Q score is higher than it was shortly after the infamous “decision,” but it still isn’t anything to write home about: A poll of the general population [last September] by The Q Scores Company revealed that only 14 percent of people thought of James positively, while 39…
