Miami Heat

  1. Watch out now, Wade can see — he had Lasik surgery

    Jul 18, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Interesting little note out of the Miami Herald (in a story with a number of interesting tidbits)— Dwyane Wade has had Lasik surgery. For those who were born with perfect eyes and never had to deal with it, Lasik is the laser eye surgery that corrects vision problems. Not every player is comfortable with this…

  2. Heat want a small forward, possibly Battier, and Eddy Curry if he loses 40 lbs.. Literally.

    Jul 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The Miami Heat are still thinking about how to improve their team to get it over the top (one would have thought bringing in the best free agent class in history would have done it, but one would be wrong), even in a lockout. They have a number of options in mind for upgrades at…

  3. Report: Mavericks vs. Heat rematch set for Christmas Day, you know, if there’s a season

    Jul 17, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd (R) of the Dallas Mavericks g

    It’s really quaint, actually. The NBA is going to go ahead and release the schedule for the 2011-2012 season this week, acting like it intends to have a season while its owners openly push for missing the whole year just to bury the players completely. It’s kind of cruel in retrospect, though, to tease the…

  4. James Jones says the owners “want it all”

    Jul 16, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Jones_James

    If you want a nice perspective on where this whole lockout thing stands, just go ask the reigning 3-point champion. I know that sounds odd. But James Jones in a recent interview with the AP put things nicely in perspective about the difference between the owners and the players. “They’re holding fast to what they…

  5. Shaq says LeBron’s travails “happened to everyone”

    Jul 15, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal has been through the wars. He’s won a lot of rings, he’s lost in finals, he’s been loved and scorned by the media. Oh, and he had his own reality show. Think what you want of him, he understands a lot of what it takes to get things done in the NBA. In…

  6. Dwyane Wade swats some kid’s shot hoop camp

    Jul 14, 2011, 5:31 PM EDT

    Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's 24th Annual Sports Spectacular

    Dwyane Wade is one of the best shot blocking guards in the NBA. Which makes him especially dangerous if his opponent is less than four feet tall. Not something he runs into much in the NBA (insert your own J.J. Barea joke here) but he does at his youth camp. So during a fun little…

  7. Mike Miller has surgery again, this time his shoulder

    Jul 14, 2011, 4:57 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

    Someday Mike Miller is going to be healthy. We think. He certainly is getting enough treatment for his many ailments. That now includes another surgery, this time to his left shoulder, according to Ira Winderman at the Sun-Sentinel. This is on the heels of the thumb surgery he already had after the NBA finals ended.…

  8. Dwyane Wade still feeling sting of finals loss

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dwyane Wade loves basketball. He just can’t watch it right now. He still feels the sting of the Miami heat’s loss in the NBA finals a month ago, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel. “I haven’t watched ESPN in a long time,” Wade said Wednesday morning, amid his youth basketball camp at Nova Southeastern…

  9. Rose “damn confident” about Bulls chances next season

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Don’t you get the feeling we’re going to be seeing variations of that Eastern Conference Finals for the next few years? Bulls vs. Heat. Miami won and they should get better role players and more comfortable with each other in the future — they will be better. Derrick Rose knows that, but he likes the…

  10. LeBron’s former teammate sees two sides of the man

    Jul 12, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    lance_allred

    Lance Allred is one of the more interesting guys in the NBA — legally deaf (and a very good lip reader), raised Mormon, in his youth part of a polygamous sect (that he and his family have renounced) and one of those people who has been in the NBA but comes with a broader perspective…

  11. LeBron’s popularity at an all-time low

    Jul 9, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    They say it’s better to be feared than loved. Maybe the modern sports equivalent is “it’s more profitable to be hated than loved. “ Because even as LeBron James‘ global brand is expanding to collegiate teams who have Final Four spots penciled in (plus Miami), as his jersey is tops in the world, as his…

  12. Universities to wear LeBron James gear under sponsorship deal: Miami, UK… and Ohio State

    Jul 9, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This should go over well. LeBron James, in his continuing quest to become the most powerful brand in sports, has struck a deal for his Nike brand to sponsor three universities. Players at the University of Miami (the U) will wear the brand, which makes sense, given not only they share of the city with…

  13. Video: “The Decision Remix” by DJ Steve Porter

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    This is the last trip down memory lane about the decision, but this is more than worth it. DJ Steve Porter — the video mashup artist responsible for Press Hop and Press Hop 2 among others — put together a look back at the year for LeBron and put together this video. Which is impressive. Enjoy.

  14. Jim Gray talks “Decision,” says LeBron did not pay him

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    On the one-year anniversary of The Decision, LeBron’s interviewer Jim Gray sounded like others close to the production of the event — they don’t understand all the backlash. Gray went on the Dan Patrick Show (see the video below) and, as reported by CSN Chicago, and first he wanted to clear up the rumor he…

  15. One year ago today, LeBron made “The Decision”

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    It someday may go down with the most legendary player moves in NBA history — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to the Lakers, Dirk Nowitzki to the Mavs (on draft night for Tractor Traylor), and the Celtics turning Joe Barry Carroll into Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish. One year ago today, LeBron James told Jim Gray and the…

  16. Just so you know, Ilgauskas hasn’t made up his mind yet

    Jul 7, 2011, 10:31 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    A couple weeks ago, before the lockout kicked in, Zydrunas Ilgauskas picked up his $1.4 million option with the Miami Heat for next season. That doesn’t mean he’s going to play with the Heat. The floor-stretching center hasn’t decided yet, he told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “If I play, it will be in Miami,”…

  17. It’s summer, but Jason Terry still tweaking LeBron

    Jul 7, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Terry just can’t help himself. All through the finals he didn’t back down and trash talked LeBron. The Mavs won, but Terry isn’t done. Remember how after the finals ended LeBron said that all those Heat haters, “at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life…

  18. Report: Timberwolves Beasley arrested for marijuana possession

    Jul 6, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oh, Michael Beasley, just when we think you are getting another chance and maybe getting things together. Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was arrested for marijuana possession and speeding in Minnesota last week, according to NBC 11 KARE in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Beasley was pulled over on June 26 for speeding around 3 a.m. on Interstate 394…

  19. There are NBA owners who need next season to happen

    Jul 5, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The hardliners always get the headlines (have you watched much political news coverage?). It’s true of the NBA lockout as well — there are hardline owners that in the last decade leveraged themselves to pay hundreds of millions for a mid-to-small market NBA team and they need the business model to change. They are willing…

  20. Lockout nearly forces Bosh to rearrange wedding seating chart

    Jul 1, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    We told you earlier today, the NBA is VERY serious about the whole “teams cannot contact players during the lockout” thing. If you’re the team PR guy and you just happen to run into a player at the grocery store, you have to file a notice with the league. But what happens when the two…

  21. Eddie House opts to re-join the Heat

    Jun 30, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    House_Eddie

    Sleep easy, Heatians: Eddie House isn’t going anywhere. According to Mike Wallace of ESPN.com’s Heat Index, House has accepted his player option for next season and will spend the 2011-2012 campaign — in whatever length the lockout allows — with the Heat. House’s option is worth approximately $1.4 million next season, per Storytellers Contracts —…

  22. Creators of “The Decision” stunned by backlash (and other details of event)

    Jun 30, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    On the eve of a lockout that — if it does end up costing games — will kill the momentum around the league, let’s look back at the thing that helped create all that momentum and the increased ratings: LeBron James’ Decision. The television show sparked interest from casual fans that carried over to increased…

  23. Will the Heat run more next season?

    Jun 29, 2011, 7:08 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The Heat Index’s Tom Haberstroh has an interesting article up today wondering whether we’ll see the Miami Heat get out in transition more next season: Over the weekend, Pat Riley lent us a peek into his offseason game plan. Would Erik Spoelstra and the Heat make it a priority to speed things up next season?…

  24. Heat’s James Jones opts out of contract

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Jones_James

    Our own Ira Winderman of the Florida Sun-Sentinel has the story: MIAMI— Saying he merely was looking to “find the best situation for me,” Miami Heat forward James Jonesconfirmed Wednesday to the Sun Sentinel that he has decided to opt out of the 2011-12 season on his contract. Jones, however, stressed that the decision was not in response…

  25. Bosh finds way to disappoint with Vegas bachelor party

    Jun 29, 2011, 1:43 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Chris Bosh got a bad rap this season. People tried to paint him as a third wheel and a disappointment, but he had worked hard to find his groove with the Miami Heat (his scoring took a step back, but what did you really expect with those teammates?). When they needed him to step up…
