Miami Heat

  1. Dwyane Wade says Heat will see less hate next season

    Aug 24, 2011, 12:32 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Is last season’s white-hot hate for all things Miami going to cool down to just red-hot? I see the comments on this site and in my twitter timeline when I dare suggest that he hatred for all things Miami will cool with time, especially if they win a title or two — you don’t believe…

  2. Even LeBron is poking fun at LeBron’s hairline

    Aug 24, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Dwight Howard has done it. A few months back during the playoffs everyone seemed to be doing it. It’s been a quietly running Internet joke for years. LeBron James’ hairline has become a punch line. Now, even for LeBron. He tweeted this Wednesday morning. Had a dream my hairline was back! Woke up and went…

  3. Video: LeBron James freezes up on high dive

    Aug 23, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Just insert your own “LeBron James freezes up in a big moment” joke right here. I’ve run out of them. Here is the video of LeBron walking out to a high dive in Barcelona — one built for the 1992 Olympics — and freezing up, hesitating to jump (via The Basketball Jones). He eventually makes…

  4. Winderman: Former Georgetown brawlers Ewing, Mourning unite for South Africa

    Aug 23, 2011, 1:46 PM EDT

    Alonzo Mourning, Patrick Ewing

    The enduring memory of Alonzo Mourning and Patrick Ewing is of Georgetown alums who didn’t allow their Hoya loyalties to get in the way of a healthy scrum. See: Heat-Knicks, circa late-’90s. Yet Tuesday, as the two spoke on an NBA-arranged conference call to detail their participation, along with fellow former Hoya Dikembe Mutombo, on…

  5. Wade says what Heat endured was at times “unfair”

    Aug 22, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Heat have become black and white — there are no shades of gray with this team. People do not really tolerate the “I don’t like how they handed last summer but that was still a good basketball team” position. Love or hate. Black and white. Evil and good. How you react to what you…

  6. LeBron says week after finals loss was worst he ever had

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A Miami Heat team in it’s first season together went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to a Dallas Mavericks team that found it’s stride after years together. That chemistry was part of the difference in that series. Watching the Heat lose was something fans everywhere and Kevin Love savored. You should…

  7. Infamous booster Nevin Shapiro allegedly hung out with Dwyane Wade, Shaq, along with rest of Miami

    Aug 21, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade attends a fashion show of the Yves Saint Laurent collection as part of spring-summer 2012 men's fashion season presented in Paris on Friday, June 24, 2011

    It was only really a matter of time, honestly. Nevin Shapiro is the infamous convict who ran a Ponzi scheme and recently provided enough detailed evidence of widespread corruption and NCAA violation at the University of Miami to tarnish their reputation for a decade. The U is a nuclear wasteland right now as the NCAA…

  8. Shocking: You people really don’t like LeBron James

    Aug 19, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    LeBron James is no Betty White. We all knew LeBron’s popularity and marketability took a hit with The Decision (even though you tuned in to watch him play). But now we have evidence of just how hard a hit. You people really don’t like him. A recent Ipsos poll had LeBron in the bottom 10…

  9. Bosh: Heat have to just own up to “The Decision”

    Aug 15, 2011, 3:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    About the start of next season — whenever that is — we should be done talking about “The Decision.” Maybe we won’t be, maybe people will not let it die, but it feels like it should. LeBron James himself has said he would have handled it differently. The event turned all of the nation outside…

  10. Udonis Haslem gets the rest of his hardware removed from his foot

    Aug 14, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Something forgotten when Udonis Haslem came back to help lead the Heat’s surge past the Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals is that Haslem wasn’t anywhere near healthy. He was in a race against time trying to recover from his foot injury, and had had significant surgery a few months before. Haslem was careful with…

  11. The Biggest Loser is Eddy Curry, apparently

    Aug 14, 2011, 11:34 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Here’s your quarterly update on Eddy Curry’s continuing efforts to lose an entire person in weight. As the former Knicks center continues to try and get back into shape to make a roster next season, with the Heat at the top of his list, he’s trying to lose as much of that heftiness as possible.…

  12. What does it mean for players to organize team workouts?

    Aug 13, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    kevin-durant-game-2

    From Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix: Durant told SI he planned on getting Thunder players together, likely in either Florida or Texas, for informal workouts in September. via Twitter / @ChrisMannixSI: Durant told SI he planned …. That makes Durant the latest in a series of players including Zach Randolph, Andray Blatche organizing team workouts for their…

  13. Dwyane Wade says he will play “somewhere” next season

    Aug 9, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Jersey Nets

    Dwyane Wade, in the middle of the prime of his career, does not want to sit out for a full NBA season. In fact, he said he wouldn’t. With fears abounding the entire season might be wiped out Wade told the Associated Press he will not sit out a full season. “I’m going to play…

  14. Chris Bosh’s back tattoo is… interesting. And large.

    Aug 9, 2011, 2:27 PM EDT

    chris_boshs_giant_tattoo-1

    More pictures of Chris Bosh getting more ink on his back have surfaced (thank you very much The Basketball Jones and Lost in the Wilderness) and.. we still don’t really get it. Not why he’d get a business tattoo (meaning his jersey covers it) but what it is supposed to mean. To be clear, there…

  15. LeBron James working out with Hakeem Olajuwon

    Aug 9, 2011, 9:29 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dwight Howard has done it the last two summers. Kobe Bryant has done it. Now it is LeBron James’ turn. LeBron has made the pilgrimage to Houston to work out with Hakeem Olajuwon, he told the Associated Press. “I look at what he was able to do throughout his career,” James said. “Unbelievable talent. Multiple…

  16. LeBron committed to 2012 Olympics; “optimistic” for season

    Aug 8, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James says is not going to play in Turkey. Or Spain. But he is planning a trip to London. In Akron for a “Wheels for Education” charity kickoff, LeBron told the Associated Press he is not looking to play  overseas because he is so “optimistic” there will be an upcoming season. Not sure who…

  17. How about Michael Redd on the Heat? That should solve things.

    Aug 8, 2011, 12:26 AM EDT

    REDD_MICHAEL

    The trick here is to look past the actual conjectured free agency target and look to the greater schematic. But we’ll start with said conjectured free agency targets. From the Miami Herald:  If the Heat cannot sign preferred choices Shane Battier, Grant Hill or Tayshaun Prince postlockout, Miami will consider Michael Redd and Tracy McGrady,…

  18. To be clear, Wade has not gotten offer from China. Yet.

    Aug 5, 2011, 5:06 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Yesterday we told you or reports Dwyane Wade got a $2 million a month offer from one Chinese team. That report was denied by the Chinese team. Now it also has been shot down by Wade’s agent. Here’s the money paragraph from the Miami Herald. Wade and his agent, Henry Thomas, have said Wade will…

  19. Report: Wade offered $2 million a month to play in China

    Aug 4, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    We told you Sunday, Chinese officials are about to put in rules designed to stop an influx of NBA stars to the Chinese league — no opt-out contracts, and only one foreign born player per team. The Chinese government — and that’s who runs the league and the entire sports system — wants to build…

  20. Really, this is a controversy? LeBron in an Akron T-shirt?

    Aug 1, 2011, 10:13 PM EDT

    lebron akron shirt

    The photo of LeBron James at the right (the full length version is below) is basically a Rorschach test about what you think of LeBron. Here are the facts: LeBron tweeted this photo of himself with two young children who did something very sweet — they raised money at a lemonade stand in Akron and…

  21. Kobe Bryant tells LeBron’s critics to “back off”

    Aug 1, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game

    You can add Kobe Bryant to the list of LeBron James defenders. In an interview with ESPN Sunday, Kobe — who has seen his share of fan and media criticism, and a few other people’s shares also, especially following the trade of Shaquille O’Neal from the Lakers and the incident in Colorado — told people…

  22. Quote of the day: Are the Eagles the Heatles?

    Aug 1, 2011, 12:14 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Philadelphia Eagles fans are pretty pumped right now, their club has gone on a post lockout spending spree — Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Vince Young. Well, we’ll see how much Young really helps, and they may want to get Long Beach’s own DeSean Jackson back in camp, but still the Eagles are looking good.…

  23. Wade, Bosh’s agent says they are “open” to playing overseas

    Aug 1, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    I am open to winning the lottery. I am open to spending a month living in a villa in Tuscany. Or Maui. I’m open to only drinking 25-year-old Glendronach scotch. I’m open to having a private jet. I’m open to eating all my meals at Le Bernardin. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are open to…

  24. Video: Dwayne Wade, the making of a fashion icon

    Jul 29, 2011, 11:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat basketball player Dwyane Wade attends a fashion show of the Yves Saint Laurent collection as part of spring-summer 2012 men's fashion season presented in Paris on Friday, June 24, 2011

    I don’t know if Dwyane Wade is a fashion icon and I am about the least qualified person in the United States to make that call. Well, our own Matt Moore gives me a run for that designation, but basically hoops bloggers are not people you should turn to for fashion advice. But someone thinks…

  25. Kevin Love says players enjoyed the Heat losing, too

    Jul 28, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    kevinlove

    Like a scene out of the terrible movie “Sideout,” Kevin Love has somehow become the media darling talking up beach volleyball even though he’s never really played it. (Volleyball legend Karch Kiraly was the only 90s beach volleyball star who refused to be in Sideout because he thought it demeaned the sport. Just another reason…
