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

    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Heat’s Mario Chalmers MRI shows sprained knee, out 2 weeks

    Mar 20, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    When teammates had to help him off the court Saturday night, it looked like it could be much worse. So the news that Miami starting point guard Mario Chalmers will be out two weeks with a sprained knee, while not good, is not what many feared after he went down. Chalmers had an MRI Sunday…

  5. Heat come out of big test with incomplete grade

    Mar 20, 2011, 9:31 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    This was to be the big test. We were going to finally really figure some things out about the Miami Heat. They had 11 consecutive games against quality teams – every one of them headed to the playoffs. Plenty of contenders in the mix. Finally we would see the Heat against the best. They finished…

  6. Stumbling to the playoffs in the East

    Mar 19, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    Interesting post put up at Hoopdata, simply looking at playoff team’s records since the All-Star Break (coming into Saturday’s games). What you notice is some team’s stumbling to the finish line in the East. Chicago 11-3 Philadelphia 10-4 Boston 8-5 Orlando 8-5 New York 7-7 Miami 6-7 Indiana 6-9 Atlanta 5-9 We knew the Bulls…

  7. Former Heat player Tim James to be honored for military service

    Mar 18, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    tim-james-draft

    Back in 1999, Tim James was drafted 25th overall out of the University of Miami by the hometown Heat. It seemed like the start of a perfect story. But it didn’t pan out that way. James played four games for the Heat as a rookie, spent the next season with the Charlotte Hornets and the…

  8. Bosh says real men cry, Kobe should have been kicked out of the gym

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    I’m not sure why the alleged crying in the Heat locker room is still an issue, but it is for some. To me it showed they cared, I’d be more concerned as a Heat fan if they were joking and blasting Drake in the locker room after a last-second loss. (Actually, I’d be concerned if…

  9. Video: Dwyane Wade with a monster throw down… then the Cabbage Patch?

    Mar 17, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    Oklahoma City got Kendrick Perkins to defend the rim — and he did a good job of it most of Wednesday night — but Dwyane Wade put a hurt on him with this one. (Which is not a slam on Perkins — Wilt Chamberlain standing on Bill Russell’s shoulders may not have blocked this dunk.)…

  10. Thunder serious about defense, Miami finds out hard way

    Mar 17, 2011, 3:32 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder

    When Thunder GM Sam Presti traded for Kendrick Perkins and Nazr Mohammed at the trade deadline, this is what he had in mind. It wasn’t just their direct impact — Perkins was in foul trouble and sat key stretches of this contest — but with them in the fold the Thunder are more committed on…

  11. Winderman: Heat charging fans to line up on wrong side of velvet rope

    Mar 16, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Miami Heat

    On a day when LeBron James revealed a bracket on his website that has Duke as his choice, after he previously said he thought Ohio State would win the NCAA Tournament, apparently the rules have changed. Based on a Wednesday announcement from the Miami Heat, that has become abundantly clear. Upon announcing that the team…

  12. NBA playoff picture slowly starting to come into focus

    Mar 16, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    At this point, nothing would really surprise me when the NBA playoffs start in a month. Well, Indiana winning the NBA title — heck, more than one game — would surprise me. So that is not totally true. But it’s hard to remember a more wide-open year. Every potential contender has enough strengths that you…

  13. 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…

  14. Is the Spurs defense becoming something to worry about?

    Mar 15, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    Monday night’s blowout win showcased what Miami can do on defense. They dominated the usually efficient Spurs offense — fighting for spots on the floor that the spurs like, sticking with shootings at the arc, generally just throwing them off their game. But at the other end of the floor Spurs defense may be as…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Zydrunas Ilgauskas admitted to hospital, will not play versus Spurs

    Mar 13, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas was admitted to a Miami hospital for treatment of a foot infection Sunday and is expected to miss the Heat’s Monday night game against the San Antonio Spurs. Ilgauskas stepped on a nail in his home last Friday, which kept him out of Saturday’s game against the Grizzlies. And by game, I mean…

  18. 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…

  19. Shocking news: Matt Bonner more considerate than Kobe Bryant

    Mar 12, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    1st Annual Cartoon Network's "Hall Of Game" Awards - Show

    Kobe Bryant is the fiercest competitor in the NBA, and a relentless offensive force. It’s that drive that makes him one of if not the best player in the NBA, and that force which drove him to hang out for over an hour shooting baskets in American Airlines Arena following the Lakers’ loss to the…

  20. Shaq teaming up on “no holds barred” book

    Mar 11, 2011, 3:39 PM EDT

    Image (1) Shaq_fist-thumb-250x374-20454.jpg for post 4198

    Think there might be a Kobe chapter? According to WEEI in Boston, Shaquille O’Neal is working on a new book with one of the nation’s best sportswriters, Jackie MacMullan (via Kevin Ding at the Orange County Register). “She knew things that I’d forgotten about. We were sitting at the house talking — we meet twice…

  21. 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”…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
