  1. The Biggest Loser is Eddy Curry, apparently

    Aug 14, 2011, 11:34 AM EST

    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.…

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

    Aug 13, 2011, 6:05 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 9, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 9, 2011, 2:27 PM EST

    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…

  5. LeBron James working out with Hakeem Olajuwon

    Aug 9, 2011, 9:29 AM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 8, 2011, 6:58 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 8, 2011, 12:26 AM EST

    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,…

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

    Aug 5, 2011, 5:06 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 4, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2011, 10:13 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2011, 12:57 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 1, 2011, 12:14 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Aug 1, 2011, 10:37 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 29, 2011, 11:37 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 28, 2011, 11:56 AM EST

    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…

  16. Dwight Howard goes to Comic-Con (and talks free agency)

    Jul 26, 2011, 2:53 PM EST

    Disney XD'S "Kick Buttowski Suburban Daredevil" - Comic-Con 2011

    Dwight Howard stands out at Comic-Con. Which is not that easy to do. The entire city of San Diego seems to be dressed as a stormtrooper or an Amime character for the annual convention of all-things comic and sci-fi. But a 6’11” man who is the best center walking the planet gets noticed anywhere he…

  17. Fan gets LeBron’s face tattooed on his leg

    Jul 25, 2011, 10:23 AM EST

    lebron-james-leg-tattoo2

    I get why one would be a fan of LeBron James — he has been blessed with physical gifts to play basketball like few others. He has the size and strength of Karl Malone, but he’s quicker than most of the point guards in the league. He can play inside or out, he can do…

  18. Nick Arison, 30, to take over as CEO of Miami Heat

    Jul 22, 2011, 4:59 PM EST

    Micky Arison, Nick Arison

    Micky Arison became CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines at the age of 28. With the money he made from that and other ventures, he took over controlling interest of the Miami Heat 16 years ago. Now he is going to put more time into the carnival business while his son Nick Arison — at the…

  19. Alonzo Mourning says he did nothing wrong in car crash

    Jul 21, 2011, 10:43 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    We reported to you yesterday Alonzo Mourning is getting sued for an alleged hit-and-run accident with a Miami area college student, William J. Candelario. Mourning, as one expects, says he did nothing wrong, and the police reports seem to back up his version of events. The Miami Herald spoke with the former Heat player and…

  20. Mario Chalmers opens shop for cancer patients

    Jul 20, 2011, 1:39 PM EST

    Image (1) mchalmers-thumb-250x140-16114.jpg for post 3204

    Good on Mario Chalmers. The free agent point guard who should have seen more minutes in the finals (if it meant fewer minutes for Mike Bibby) has opened a shop for cancer patients in a Lawrence, Kansas, hospital, the Associated Press reports. Cancer claimed the life of the mother of a childhood friend of Chalmers,…

  21. Alonzo Mourning sued over alleged hit-and-run accident

    Jul 20, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    With the Miami Heat back in the NBA finals, Alonzo Mourning seemed to back in the news a lot. Which is good, we missed Zo. This, however, is not how he wanted to be back in the news. From the Sun-Sentinel. A Miami college student was to file a lawsuit Wednesday claiming he was injured…

  22. Miami gets cakewalk early (and other schedule thoughts)

    Jul 19, 2011, 6:05 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    The NBA’s schedule for the season is out and for at least one day we are going to ignore those ominous lockout clouds and pretend it’s just another sunny July day. With a full season ahead of us. With that, some follow up thoughts after our first glance post earlier today. • The Miami Heat…

  23. Shaq talks about Heat’s “big two.” Somewhere Bosh shrugs.

    Jul 19, 2011, 4:28 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    All last season Dwyane Wade and LeBron James did their press conferences together, usually well after Chris Bosh cleaned up in the locker room, came out and did his by himself. That combined with Bosh scoring 7 fewer points per game than either of the other two, and the fact the other two took over…

  24. NBA Schedule released, here are your highlights

    Jul 19, 2011, 2:50 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    This NBA season is shaping up to be a fun one. Yes, we know, we know… IF there is an NBA season. But deep down we want to believe that the owners and players are too smart to piss away all the momentum the league has built up. For today we’re going to move ahead…

  25. Attend a Liverpool game, get to meet LeBron James

    Jul 19, 2011, 10:11 AM EST

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    When English Premier League power Liverpool tour Asia next month — a chance to get in some warmup matches before the season and promote the brand in China — fans of the franchise would love the chance to meet Dirk Kuyt or Steven Gerrard. But they could get to meet LeBron James, reports the Sports…
