Miami Heat

  1. Paul Silas says LeBron treated Cavaliers just like teams treat players

    Jan 4, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Cavaliers v Wizards

    Among the seemingly innumerable things LeBron James has been criticized for — from the legitimate to the ludicrous — was the complaint that he needed to let Cleveland know much farther in advance he was gone. If he was not coming back, he had an obligation to let them know so they could get something…

  2. Heat players nickname themselves “The Heatles”

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Well, this should be gasoline on the fire that is people thinking the Miami Heat’s egos are running amok. During his postgame comments Monday night (via the Miami Herald), LeBron joked that the Heat call themselves “The Heatles” because they sell out every stadium they tour on the road. (The Heatles is a not-so-subtle Beatles…

  3. LeBron James, Courtney Lee with last night’s best dunks

    Jan 4, 2011, 8:11 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    Why choose just one? There are no rules that say there can only be one dunk of the night on this blog. Especially since we’re making up the rules as we go. In that spirit we give you LeBron James on the breakaway against the Bobcats. By the way, this was not the play where…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Warriors are awesome in the first half, but that last 24….

    Jan 4, 2011, 2:48 AM EDT

    Warriors Magic

    What you missed while wondering what to do with your PowerBalance bracelet… Magic 110, Warriors 90: If new Golden State owner Joe Lacob petitions the league to shorten games to 24 minutes, you can’t blame him — the Warriors have led the Heat and Magic at the half in their last two games. And lost…

  5. Drew Gooden to sit out Bucks next four games

    Jan 3, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    If you are an NBA fan, you need to learn about plantar fasciitis. It’s the chronic foot problem — inflammation of a band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and presents as heel pain — that has bothered Tyreke Evans, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker, Joakim Noah and myriad of other NBA…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Who said the Spurs were over the hill?

    Jan 3, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where that Spurs/Celtics game Wednesday is looking like the game of the week. 1. Spurs (29-4). They beat a suddenly reeling Mavericks team as well as the Lakers this week. By the way, Tim Duncan has put up an average of 16 points and 10 rebounds a game in the…

  7. LeBron’s birthday cake could feed a small country

    Jan 3, 2011, 12:58 PM EDT

    LeBrons-Birthday-Cake

    LeBron James turned 26 last week and there was a big party… to which we were not invited. It’s okay, I was busy anyway. Big plans. We’re sure it was a quiet, mild affair with dinner at trendy STK followed by drinks at Coco Deville next door (according to Dime). We don’t have any details…

  8. We end 2010 with some LeBron James highlights

    Dec 31, 2010, 10:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    The Lakers won the title and were the best team. Kobe Bryant added another layer to his legacy. Blake Griffin exploded on the scene. The Boston Celtics defied age all the way to the finals then this season the old guys have become the most social-media friendly team in the league. There have been more…

  9. LeBron James on 2010: “I’m a happy man right now”

    Dec 31, 2010, 2:42 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    New Year’s Eve is a time for reflection. And champagne. And singing Robert Burns. But also reflection. LeBron James was asked to reflect on his year – where he and his decision were the biggest story in the NBA and maybe all of sports — by Brian Windhorst at ESPN. LeBron mostly chose to look…

  10. Chris Bosh’s New Year’s Resolution: average 10 rebounds a game

    Dec 30, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    Chris Bosh is not exactly the first scoring option on the Heat. Or the second. But he can rebound. Well, he hasn’t been great at that this season either — he is grabbing 13.3 percent of the available rebounds when he is on the floor, his lowest percentage since his rookie year and well off…

  11. The Heat should really be moving without the ball more

    Dec 29, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The Heat have won 15 of their last 16 games. They are currently 3rd in the league in offensive efficiency, despite the fact that they don’t play at a very fast pace, have put most of their emphasis on defense, and have been without Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem.So talking about how the Heat’s offense…

  12. Winderman: This season, to the conference winners go the spoils

    Dec 29, 2010, 4:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    No, this is not the NFL, where regular-season dominance translates into a playoff bye. But this season, there just might be a similar reward forthcoming in the NBA. With all due respect to the Bulls and Jazz and others teams perhaps outplaying their expectations to this point, each conference appears to have three prime championship…

  13. Devin Harris offended LeBron singled Nets out in contraction talk

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:44 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    Let’s be clear, LeBron James was not talking about contraction. He just mentioned “shrinking the (league)” which is so totally different than contraction. It’s just the media twisting his words. Whatever James was talking about, he mentioned the New Jersey Nets and wondered how Devin Harris would look on another roster. Harris told the Star-Ledger…

  14. Miami’s first free agency meeting last summer was with Amar’e Stoudemire

    Dec 29, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire

    One more time, let’s jump in the WABAC Machine and visit the 2010 summer of free agency to think about how things might have been different… According to the New York Post, at the stroke of midnight opening free agency, Amar’e Stoudemire and his agent were meeting with Erik Spoelstra and the Miami Heat brain…

  15. Dwight Howard mocks LeBron with fake chalk toss in Cleveland

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    howardface

    The Orlando Magic were in Cleveland Tuesday night and Dwight Howard played to the crowd a little before the game by mocking LeBron James‘ famed pregame chalk toss (which LeBron borrowed from Garnett who got it from MJ, but that’s another story). Well, maybe not mocking, but it wasn’t a loving tribute. Before the game…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Knicks try but the Heat outclass them

    Dec 29, 2010, 3:29 AM EDT

    i

    What you missed while watching Tuesday night NFL football… The Spurs taking care of the Lakers was our game of the night. Heat 106, Knicks 98: The Heat jumped out early because of… Zydrunas Ilgauskas? Well of course, who did you expect? Big Z had 12 points and 9 boards in the first quarter as…

  17. Miami Heat slowing it down, still winning

    Dec 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    There has been a stylistic debate about the Heat this season — should they run more or slow it down? Frankly Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are fearsome both in transition and in the half court, but what works best for the team? I was in the camp that with the Heat’s pressure defense they…

  18. LeBron says he never supported contraction

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:29 PM EDT

    Nets Heat Basketball

    When LeBron James recently said that he believes the league’s talent level has become “watered down,” and illustrated his point by asking people to imagine what the league would look like if the best players from the Timberwolves and Nets were distributed among the rest of the teams in the NBA. Although LeBron did say…

  19. Christmas Day games get huge ratings

    Dec 27, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    No matter how many people say that Christmas Day games are just another game and the Miami Heat are just another good team, everybody sure did tune in when the Heat and the Lakers met on Christmas Day. The Heat-Lakers game drew a fast national rating of 6.4, which is a 45% increase in ratings…

  20. Quote of the Day: Avery Johnson disagrees with LeBron on what’s good for the league

    Dec 27, 2010, 2:23 PM EDT

    Image (1) Ajohnson-thumb-250x140-11398.jpg for post 1903

    “I disagree. Maybe the league would be better if we didn’t have three stars on one team.” —New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson, after being told LeBron James suggested New Jersey was a team that could be contracted (via the New York Daily News). James suggested that the 1980s were an NBA golden age of…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Dallas sweeps through Florida, right to the top

    Dec 27, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where the top four teams are all 9-1 in their last 10 and probably could be ranked in any order. 1. Mavericks (23-5). They move into the top spot on the strength of their sweep of Miami and Orlando on back-to-back nights. That depth Mark Cuban touted really helps them…

  22. Kobe Bryant not a happy camper after Lakers-Heat

    Dec 26, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant‘s won more than his fair share of games during is career. But he’s lost a few, too. It’s just part of the NBA. So it would be easy for him to brush off what happened Saturday as the Heat creamed his Lakers, busting out by 20 point in the fourth quarter and eventually…

  23. Dwyane Wade will play against Lakers

    Dec 25, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    After some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would be good to go with his knee hurting. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade is “fine” and will play versus the Lakers Saturday afternoon. The Lakers will likely look to go at Wade on the offensive end, as…

  24. Santa puts five games under your tree (or on your new flat screen) for Christmas

    Dec 24, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Phil Jackson and LeBron James may not like having to work — you don’t hear police and emergency room doctors complaining — but Christmas is a bounty for NBA fans. Presents, turkey AND ham, family and five basketball games. Perfect. Let’s break the games down. Bulls vs. Knicks (Noon ET, ESPN): This may well be…

  25. Let the “it’s just another game” banter begin

    Dec 24, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    The whole of NBA fandom will be watching the Heat take on the Lakers on Christmas in what will rightfully be billed as a possible finals preview. So it’s a big deal, as Brett Pollakoff tried to get LeBron James to say to FanHouse. And LeBron went nowhere near the bait. “If it’s against the…
