Miami Heat

  1. Greg Oden makes first regular season appearance since 2009, dunks almost immediately (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    Greg Oden was a part of the Heat’s active roster on Wednesday, meaning that it was likely he’d see his first action of the regular season on the road against the Wizards. Oden was a reclamation project for Miami, a long-term gamble the team hoped would pay off by the time the postseason rolled around…

  2. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Jan 15, 2014, 7:59 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  3. Greg Oden activated, will be in uniform and could play vs. Wizards Wednesday

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Greg Oden could play in an NBA Game tonight for the first time since Dec. 5, 2009. The Miami Heat have activated Oden and he is in uniform as the Heat take on the Wizards in Washington, reports Tom Haberstoh of ESPN as well as other sources. Whether he gets on the court or not…

  4. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  5. Report: Warriors add Jordan Crawford for guard depth in three-team trade with Celtics, Heat

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  6. LeBron James jealous of Kevin Durant’s shot attempts

    Jan 15, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    LeBron James has not won a scoring title since 2008, when, not coincidentally, he last led the NBA in shots per game. Attempting the most shots is not a sure-fire way to lead the league in scoring average – Kevin Durant leads the NBA in points per game this season, though Carmelo Anthony and LaMarcus…

  7. The Extra Pass: The best possible nickname jerseys; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Jan 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    If you missed it last week, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets played with nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names. Once I was able to shush the crotchety old man that sometimes takes over my brain, I really enjoyed it. Ray Allen‘s “J. Shuttlesworth” jersey, a nod to his…

  8. Barack Obama welcomes Miami Heat to White House (VIDEO)

    US-POLITICS-NBA-OBAMA-HEAT

    We brought you a quote from this already, now we give you the full video. Following tradition, President Barack Obama welcomed the NBA champion Miami Heat to the White House on Tuesday. Obama, a basketball fan who has had LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and other Heat players in his pick-up games, was plentiful with the jokes.…

  9. Quote of the Day: Barack Obama tries to cut off any yelling at Mario Chalmers

    “With that, we should take a picture, but we should make it quick, before one of these guys starts yelling at Mario.” —President Barack Obama, wrapping up the Miami Heat’s visit to the White House as NBA Champions, via Ethan Skolnik of Bleacher Report. It’s an annual tradition to have the NBA champion visit the…

  10. Are the Heat the NBA’s most book smart team? They think so.

    Jan 14, 2014, 3:11 PM EDT

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    An NBA locker room is not the most academic of settings. It’s not a book club sitting around discussing “The Luminaries” (even though with all the down time NBA players have they have the time to get through it). There are smart, well read guys in the NBA, however, and they tend to be veteran…

  11. “LeBroning” — flopping on random, unsuspecting people — is going viral

    Jan 14, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    That’s “LeBroning.” Mocking the flopping skills of LeBron James — and he’s skilled at the art, no doubt — by just getting brushed by people in the hall or at the mall or wherever then falling to the ground looks like it’s going viral. You can see it on Huffington Post, which is pretty much…

  12. Andrew Bynum learning the market for his services isn’t that strong

    Jan 13, 2014, 12:18 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum missed all of last season in Philadelphia — well, basketball season, he got some bowling in. He got into 24 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season but saw his minutes dwindle as he is shooting just 41.9 percent and his rebounding percentage dropped. He was average on the court, at best. Combine…

  13. Report: Cavs may hold off on contract talks with Luol Deng in hopes of pursuing LeBron James

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James Cavaliers

    When the Cavaliers ridded themselves of an unhappy Andrew Bynum and traded for Luol Deng, it was a short-term decision aimed at helping the team compete for a playoff spot in the miserable Eastern Conference this season. Deng is an unrestricted free agent this summer, so the deal amounts to nothing more than a half-season…

  14. Updated Report: Eric Bledsoe had piece of meniscus removed, could return in six weeks

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:10 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    UPDATED 10:15 am: This makes more sense. According to the Arizona Republic on Monday Bledsoe had a small piece of his meniscus removed, which is a much less serious surgery than had been suggested previously. Removal of the meniscus in a player this young would be unusual, but if is is an arthosopic surgery they…

  15. LeBron James tweets out shot at his own 2011 Finals performance

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:17 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    "@thorpjoshua: @KingJames How do I get my baby to fall asleep?"(Put my performance in the 2011 Finals on! Night night immediately)— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 11, 2014 Self-deprecating humor is always appreciated. The 2011 NBA Finals was before the Miami Heat as a team — and LeBron James himself — realized they needed to just…

  16. Report: Pacers become latest team to express interest in Andrew Bynum

    Jan 12, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When Andrew Bynum was traded from the Cavaliers to the Bulls and then immediately waived in a move to shed salary, several teams, including the Miami Heat, reportedly expressed initial interest in acquiring his services. The East is unquestionably going to come down to a battle between the Heat and the Pacers, so Indiana must…

  17. LeBron admits quest for three-peat wearing down Heat

    Jan 11, 2014, 4:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    “There’s a reason these teams don’t do it. Emotionally, it’s just exhausting to keep doing it year after year, particularly when you have to deal with everything Miami has to deal with on a daily basis, just the constant critiquing and scrutiny on the team, and then you factor in the injuries with Wade and…

  18. Nets notch fifth straight win over frustrated LeBron, banged up Heat

    Jan 11, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    lebron restrained nets

    NEW YORK – LeBron James fouled out of a game for just the sixth time in his career on Friday, and with the Heat entering the game in Brooklyn already down three of their starters, losing him for the second overtime session proved to be too much. Behind big games from Joe Johnson and Shaun…

  19. LeBron not at all pleased with flagrant foul from Nets’ Mirza Teletovic (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – It’s been a frustrating night for LeBron James, and things almost boiled over midway through the fourth quarter against the Nets. Miami is without three of its starters, and entered the final period trailing by 12 points. The Heat have been on the wrong end of many 50-50 calls by the officials,…

  20. LeBron gets the tough and-1 to go against Nets (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:01 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    The Heat may have been missing three starters in their game at Brooklyn on Friday, but they still have the best player out there in LeBron James. The first quarter featured a duel of sorts between James and Joe Johnson, who finished the opening period with 16 and 22 points respectively. LeBron got two of…

  21. Spoelstra says Heat won’t base injury decisions on experience of other teams

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:24 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    NEW YORK – The Miami Heat weren’t at full strength during Thursday’s loss to the Knicks, and a day later in Brooklyn the team found out before tip-off that it would be even more shorthanded against the streaking Nets. Shane Battier and Mario Chalmers both sat against the Knicks, and will do so again in Brooklyn.…

  22. LeBron on ‘Melo’s free agency: “You got to do whatever makes you happy”

    Jan 10, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    To me this feels like the “Bart’s Inner Child” Simpsons episode where everyone in town starts emulating Bart. In the role of self-help guru Brad Goodman we have LeBron James, who himself went through an over-hyped free agency period a few years back. You may remember that. It was a PR disaster but LeBron bounced…

  23. Report: Spurs being very aggressive in trade market to upgrade roster

    Jan 10, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    We all know the San Antonio Spurs came within a Ray Allen three — or just a couple made free throws — of winning the NBA title last season (Spurs fans would like to stop reliving that, thank you very much). We also know that they are 28-8 this season, the best record in the…

  24. Report: Some league executives think Kevin Love will bolt Timberwolves for Lakers in 2015

    Jan 10, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Kevin Love is frustrated — and he should be. The Minnesota Timberwolves have the point differential of a team that should be 23-12 (according to Basketball-Reference.com), yet they are 17-18. Minnesota is 0-10 in games that ended within five points, which is a combination of some bad luck and some poor execution at the end…

  25. Knicks continue recent strong play with win over Heat

    lebron james  carmelo anthony

    NEW YORK – The Knicks got their third straight victory and fourth in five games by taking care of the Heat 102-92 on Thursday, and while everyone on both sides pointed to New York’s defense as the reason behind their success on this night, offensively it was as simple as the team finally knocking down…
