    Mar 31, 2012, 2:34 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Heat star Dwyane Wade’s nephew was one of 13 people shot — two fatally — in a violence spree in Chicago. Wade said that he learned of what happened Thursday night and said his nephew was on his mind as he dropped 30 on the Toronto Raptors in a Heat win Friday night. From the…

  2. Video: Michael Jordan holes one out from 55 feet

    Mar 30, 2012, 10:55 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Usually if we are talking about a 55-footer on this site, Jordan Farmar — or some other long-shot specialist — hoisted one up from the other side of half court to beat the buzzer and it happened to fall. Like say Dwyane Wade. But in this case we’re talking Bobcats owner Michael Jordan…. who as…

  3. LeBron’s pregame music: Wu-Tang, Jay-Z and some DMX

    Mar 30, 2012, 2:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    When you think of LeBron’s pregame ritual, you probably think of the chalk toss he stole from MJ. But music is part of it, too, long before he takes the court. It’s that way with a lot of players. They sit at their locker wearing Beats by Dre listening to whatever and getting into a…

  4. Dallas’ gunner Jason Terry says Heat on his free agent radar

    Mar 30, 2012, 9:53 AM EDT

    Jason Terry

    Miami is becoming the team where veterans who are willing to play for less want to go to win a ring. You can add Dallas’ Jason Terry to the list. The Mavericks’ second leading scorer is a free agent this summer — he didn’t get a contract extension as part of Dallas’ effort to free…

  5. Derek Fisher has moved on from Lakers trade, embracing his new role in Oklahoma City

    Mar 30, 2012, 2:47 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Russell Westbrook

    Derek Fisher returned to Staples Center on Thursday as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, his first time back since the deadline day deal the Lakers made to trade him away exactly two weeks ago. The return was a triumphant one, with his new team thrashing his old one 102-93, behind strong performances from…

  6. Heat, Mavs remind us they are not the same Heat, Mavs teams

    Mar 30, 2012, 12:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Wade is congratulated by teammate Chalmers after he scored against Dallas Mavericks during their NBA game in Miami

    It was, by definition, a rematch of the NBA finals from last June. It sure didn’t feel like it. Because these are the same franchises and the same uniforms, but they are not the same teams. The Miami Heat got a comfortable win, 106-85, playing with more energy than we have seen in recent weeks.…

  7. Steve Nash says he would “definitely listen” to offer from Heat

    Mar 29, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    This summer the courting of free agent Steve Nash is going to get out of control. He could well end up deciding to play for the Suns, but first pretty much every contending team — whether they can afford to bring him in or not — will be linked to him. If not outright reach…

  8. LeBron James will play Thursday, as if you expected otherwise

    Mar 29, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heats LeBron James looks on during their NBA basketball game against his former team the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    LeBron James had a dislocated finger on his left (non-shooting) hand, an elbow stinger, a sore neck and an assortment of other bumps and bruises that come with an NBA season. All of which led to reports that LeBron might sit out a game or two, starting Thursday against the Mavericks. You remember them, beat…

    What you see is the latest edition of PBT Extra, which covers the Knicks (as of the time of taping earlier on Wednesday), the troubles with Andrew Bynum and the Lakers, plus where I stand now on end of season awards. Some of those awards are all but wrapped up — we’re looking at you,…

  12. Report: LeBron James injured finger on non-shooting hand

    Mar 27, 2012, 7:34 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    You can add this to the list of things that may be causing the Heat to be in a bit of a funk. LeBron James may have injured — maybe dislocated — the ring finger on his left (non-shooting) hand, according to Chris Broussard at ESPN. The severity of the injury is not known at…

  13. Miami has it in cruise control, which has Heat fans concerned

    Mar 27, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James watches the bench during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    We can come up with clever names for it — the coast of Miami; the Miami malaise. Whatever name you want to put on it, it’s clear that the high-speed, attacking “pace and space” offense the Heat started off this season has slipped into cruise control at some safe highway speeds. They are averaging less…

  14. LeBron, Wade honor Trayvon Martin on their shoes

    Mar 26, 2012, 12:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade wears "We Want Justice" on his shoe in tribute to slain 17-year-old-Trayvon Martin during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Detroit

    The Miami Heat have leapt headlong into the Trayvon Martin situation, with statements from players and photos from the team. The latest step along those lines came with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade writing “RIP Trayvon Martin” on their shoes for games against Detroit and Oklahoma City. Wade also wrote “We Want Justice” on his.…

  15. Video: Dwyane Wade drains three-quarter court shot at buzzer

    Mar 26, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    It was about the only thing the Heat seemed to do right in the second half. To beat the buzzer at the end of the third quarter Sunday night, Dwyane Wade launched a three-quarter court shot. And drained it. The Thunder still ran away with the game, but the shot is worth seeing so we’re…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  17. Thunder roll on Miami as Heat roll over

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Miami Heat 103-87 Sunday night behind Kevin Durant‘s 29 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. It was an MVP performance by Durant and a statement game for the Thunder. For the Heat, it was yet another in a long series of headache-inducing performances in which the Heat faced the…

  18. 5 Things to Watch: Heat-Thunder, a potential Finals preview worth playing

    Mar 25, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

      Best in the East vs. best in the West. Nope, that’s not right. The two clearly best teams in the league. Well, no, not really with how open the West is. OK, how about just: A more-probable-than-on-average chance that these two teams will meet in the Finals. There. Sufficiently hedged. The Miami Heat and…

  19. Cavs might bring back Jamison next season

    Mar 25, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    When the Cavaliers traded for Antawn Jamison, it was supposed to be the move that brought them a championship, the final piece of the puzzle for LeBron James to bring a title to Cleveland. Instead, Jamison never showed the ability he had when he was younger, couldn’t adjust to the system fast enough, and had…

  20. LeBron James and a story of humanity you should probably read

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    There are going to be comments below and tweets about this story that are going to make you question whether we shouldn’t just abandon society and live as separate lives as we can, because we’re truly vile. As an incredibly funny man once said, “We’re a virus with shoes.” But the story needs to be…

  21. Winderman: Wade, Heat, could no longer keep silent on Trayvon Martin

    Mar 23, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat hoodie photo

    Civic activism tends to be muted in the NBA to almost the same degree as political activism. As Michael Jordan previously and famously noted during his playing days, sneaker consumers come in all shapes, sizes, colors and political affiliations. But to Dwyane Wade, when civic activism turned to parental activism, he no longer could remain…

  22. Wade posts picture of himself in hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin

    Mar 23, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    wadehoodie

    The photo you see to the right is from Dwyane Wade’s Facebook page, a picture of him in a hoodie in support of the Trayvon Martin case. That shooting in Florida has sparked national debate and interest. Martin, a black 17-year-old man, was unarmed when he was shot and killed in a confrontation with neighborhood…

  23. The “Violence Against Blake Griffin” situation

    Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    He’s asking for it. OK, stop, that right there. That’s me trying to snag your attention with some sort of bombastic statement. I can assure you my position is more nuanced than this phrase, which by the way, in the context of violence of any sort — on-court, off-court, sexual, non-sexual — should never, ever…

  25. It’s official — Heat sign Ronny Turiaf for rest of season

    Mar 21, 2012, 4:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 4:55 pm: It is official, Ronny Turiaf is a member of the Miami Heat. Let the sideline cheering begin. The Heat had made runs at bigger name big men this season — Kenyon Martin when he returned from China, Joel Przybilla, others — but this gives them a little more depth up front. He…
