Miami Heat

  1. Thanks to lockout, Heat owner has a lot of LeBron’s money

    T-Mobile Magenta Carpet At The NBA All-Star Game - Arrivals

    Sometimes, you really wonder about the people who advise LeBron James. And Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, in this case. Let’s take a step back. Remember how earlier today we passed along information about the Heat’s Mike Miller selling his Miami area home, and how that is a sign he (and everyone else) thinks the…

  2. First victim of NBA amnesty clause? Mike Miller’s house

    Nov 10, 2011, 1:12 PM EDT

    Heat's Miller reacts after sinking a three point basket against the Mavericks during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    There are still questions about what the NBA labor deal will finally look like, but you can be sure that an amnesty clause will be part of it. Teams will get the chance to release one player and wipe his contract off their books (the player will still get paid). The Miami Heat are likely…

  3. Video: Author delivers “Whore of Akron” book to LeBron

    Nov 8, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    We’ve already given you some excerpts from Scott Raab’s book “The Whore of Akron” where the Cleveland native slams LeBron James (but really spends most of the book talking about his personal demons and issues). If you want to know more, our man John Krolik did a fantastic review of it. Raab decided he wanted…

  4. If season cancelled, LeBron trade could help Cavs in draft

    Nov 7, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Since we’ve got nothing else NBA related to do today other than stare into the abyss and see if it stares back, let’s talk about an interesting little hypothetical. Let’s say the full NBA season gets cancelled. That leads to all sorts of questions about what order the picks would be in for the 2012…

  5. Rick Carlisle had Mavericks pack for only Game 6 of finals

    Nov 4, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Rick Carlisle pulled a trick out of the Miami Heat’s Pat Riley’s playbook to win the NBA finals. Back in 2006, the Miami Heat were up 3-2 and heading back for a Game 6 in Dallas. Then Heat coach Riley told his players to only pack enough clothes for one game’s stay — they were…

  6. Wade says Heat embraced the dark side, but it cost them

    Nov 3, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    USA+Basketball Wade Krzyzewski

    Every good story of a hero rising up — say, Dirk Nowitzki — needs a villain to make it work. Last season, the Miami Heat were everyone’s villains. How the entire thing went down — from LeBron’s televised decision to the pep rally — turned a lot of fans off. There was both distaste for…

  7. David Stern spins Micky Arison fine, talks lockout

    Nov 2, 2011, 12:38 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    David Stern — at the urging of other owners — fined Heat owner Micky Arison a whopping $500,000 (reportedly) for breaking the veneer of a unified ownership front. Arison tweeted that he’s not the owner you should be blaming for the lockout. And now, here comes he spin, from David Stern, who spoke with Howard…

  8. If Cavs sends Baron Davis packing, Lakers or Knicks may win

    Nov 2, 2011, 8:34 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    As we wait for Billy Hunter and David Stern to sit down and bother to talk to one another, one of the favorite games of NBA fans has become “amnesty clause roulette.” Who will teams waive with the amnesty clause when the season stars again? Then, where will that player land? Few scenarios are as…

  9. LeBron challenges Durant to a little football action

    Nov 2, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    We’re not going to see LeBron James ad Kevin Durant square off on the hard court anytime soon, so why not on the gridiron? Stranger things have happened. Monday night Kevin Durant jumped into a flag football game at Oklahoma State University. If you remember, a month ago LeBron James went out and practiced with…

  10. Other owners pushed for big fine on Heat’s Arison

    Nov 1, 2011, 3:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat owner Micky Arison arrives for the NBA labor negotiations in New York

    Heat owner Micky Arison is going to be writing a big check to the NBA — $500,000 to be exact. And he can thank some of his fellow NBA owners for that. On Halloween Arison got a trick from the league when David Stern smacked him with a heavy fine for a little twitter rant on…

  11. Shaq says he got in Pat Riley’s face in Miami, too

    Oct 31, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT

    shaq-riley

    Excerpts from Shaquille O’Neal’s new book hit the Web and of course our eyes are drawn to the Hatfields and McCoys that is he and Kobe Bryant with the Lakers. A legendary feud. But that’s not all that is there in the excerpts Deadspin published. There is also this description of his confrontation with then…

  12. Dwyane Wade might be too stylish, yada yada, wait… he paints his toenails?

    Oct 29, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    wadeGQ

    I’m not going to lie to you. Talking to Dwyane Wade in person is like being in a Tilt-A-Whirl on hallucinogenics. You’re never on stable ground, you’re not sure what’s going on, and there’s a pretty decent chance afterwards you’ll throw up from the motion. Wade is so honestly so charming, you walk away thinking…

  13. Heat owner speaks his mind on twitter, then thinks better of it

    Oct 29, 2011, 9:01 AM EDT

    Miami Heat owner Micky Arison arrives for the NBA labor negotiations in New York

    We’ve known for a while that Miami Heat owner Micky Arison is a dove — he wants his team to start playing basketball again, he’d pretty much take the players deal on the table right now and roll with the season. As fans who want to see basketball, he’s our guy. Start the games. But…

  14. Owners of teams with great rosters are eager for season to begin

    Oct 21, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst has some news that really shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody: If it were up to Heat owner Micky Arison, his team would be preparing for its final three preseason games right now and he’d be spending the majority of his time running his cruise lines and not at labor meetings in…

  15. Maybe we should let LeBron finish his career before we decide his legacy

    Oct 19, 2011, 3:26 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    Magic Johnson made a lot of friends around the Internet when he smacked around LeBron James the other day. Charles Oakley joined in. Cracking on LeBron as not all he could be has become a national past time. Saying he is not clutch because he doesn’t have a ring has somehow become accepted truth for…

  16. NFL players say LeBron should stick to basketball

    Oct 14, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT

    LeBron NFL commercial

    LeBron James should be in Heat training camp, but because he’s got more time on his hands he sounds a little bored. Which led him to tweeting about when an NFL team could sign a free agent the other day. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll picked up on that and went so far as Carroll…

  17. Some very good games lost to lockout. Thanks a lot, guys.

    Oct 11, 2011, 9:23 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    With the cancellation of the first two weeks of the season, 100 NBA games went down the drain. Hang an asterisk on this season — these are games commissioner David Stern said are gone. He said there is no chance of making them up. But what games are we now going to miss? How about…

  18. Udonis Haslem gets cleared to play basketball, would like to play NBA basketball soon

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:46 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

    Udonis Haslem‘s twitter account is less than 24 years old, but he’s already using it to post major news and his opinions about the lockout: How ironic. Just got cleared by doctors for full workouts. Hardwood here I come. LET US PLAY #STANDUNITED A foot injury caused Haslem to miss most of the regular season and…

  19. Caron Butler says he would consider playing for Heat

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The real point of this story is not Caron Butler, but rather what Caron Butler could represent for the Miami Heat. In speaking with Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports, Butler — the free agent last with the Dallas Mavericks and coming off major knee surgery — said he would consider coming back to play for…

  20. Eddy Curry pulls out of Miami charity game, Caron Butler to play

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry had lost all that weight, reportedly 100 lbs. making him the Biggest Loser in the good way for the first time in his career. His coming out party was supposed to be the charity event in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers, members (or former in restricted free-agent Mario Chalmers’…

  21. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, opponents at long last

    Oct 7, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The initial reactions to the formation of the Miami Heat primarily stemmed from places of awe, of anger, and of bewilderment. It was a development unlike anything the NBA world had ever seen, and that people responded so strongly came as no surprise. Yet eventually, those three very separate reactions were filtered into one. The…

  22. Pippen clarifies: Someday, maybe, LeBron could be best ever

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    There is nobody, anywhere, who thinks that right now LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan was. Not even Kid LeBron, Business LeBron or Wise LeBron. Bulls’ legend Scottie Pippen stepped in a pile of trouble earlier this year suggesting LeBron could be a better player than MJ. Then Pippen backtracked. Even LeBron didn’t want…

  23. Who gets really hurt by lockout: Heat slash salaries of staff

    Oct 5, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    971115_tour_arena_second_floor

    This is by far the most frustrating part about the NBA lockout — while the owners and players argue over how to split up $4 billion a year of the fans’ money, people with regular jobs and salaries who rely on the league for a living are the ones feeling the pinch. One that will…

  24. Winderman: Charity games show fans’ passion, market to see NBA elite

    Oct 3, 2011, 2:55 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    How intense is the demand from the NBA market for product? Tickets to the Saturday lockout exhibition at Florida International University that LeBron James is helping promote sold out within two hours Monday. Even though there were no on-line or phone sales, and even though some windows at the school’s box office only took cash…

  25. Heat, Celtics players party together. With Knicks guys.

    Oct 3, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics, Game 5

    Never, not for one minute, think that how you as a fan feel about your heated rival is how a player feels. No matter what intensity you see on the court. This is not the 1950s. As evidence, we present you Knicks, Celtics and Heat players all partying together like it’s 1999. That just hours…
