  1. Stoudemire: “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat”

    Jan 27, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The New York Knicks have lost both meetings with the Miami Heat this season and come into Thursday’s showdown just 3-7 in their last 10 overall. But you have to like this about Amar’e Stoudemire — he is defiant (as reported by ESPN New York). “Nobody’s afraid of the Miami Heat.” The Heat squad that…

  2. Knicks pass Lakers as league’s most valuable franchise

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire high five

    The return of the Knicks to prominence has led to a 12 percent jump in the value of the franchise, vaulting it over the Lakers into the top spot on Forbes’ rankings of NBA franchise value. The Knicks jumped from a worth of $586 million to $655 million, based on increased season ticket sales and…

  3. Chris Bosh looks mahvelous on Maxim photo shoot video

    Jan 26, 2011, 4:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Of Miami’s triad of stars, Chris Bosh is the one really enjoying the turn at celebrity. Not that he was a nobody before, but this is a whole new level of famous. The people from Maxim do not call guys from the Toronto Raptors for sunny, poolside photo shoots. They called Bosh. Maxim released a…

  4. Bosh has high ankle sprain, could miss another week, more

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is not the best player on the Miami Heat. He may be the most indispensable — with Udonis Haslem out, the drop off among bigs after Bosh is dramatic. They have nobody else who comes close to bringing what Bosh brings to the table. And Bosh is going to be out a little…

  5. Mario Chalmers takes over as Heat starting point guard

    Jan 24, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    Carlos Arroyo is out as the Heat’s starting point guard. Mario Chalmers is in. But it really doesn’t make that big a difference. These two remain interchangeable parts used depending on the situation. And there is a good chance next season it will be someone entirely new at the point in Miami. The fantastic Kevin…

  6. Erik Spoelstra explains LeBron and Wade in pie charts

    Jan 24, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Erik Spoelstra is a detail guy. The pregame whiteboard in the Heat locker room is likely the most detailed, organized one in the league — two columns of diagrammed favorite plays of the opponents, a column of sets the Heat want to run, reminders of the night’s focus on offense and defense down the middle.…

  7. D’Antoni not that worried about Knicks six-game losing streak

    Jan 24, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    When a hitter is in a slump in July — let’s say, hypothetically the entire Dodgers roster — there seems to be a game or two where he starts hitting the ball hard but still can’t buy a hit. You can feel the slump’s about to end, it just won’t. Mike D’Antoni sounds that way…

  8. Denver’s other big problem: Nene

    Jan 23, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Beyond the ongoing, never-ending, painfully unresolved saga of Carmelo Anthony lies the dread and doom of another situation. If you check Denver’s books, you’ll notice that Nene has an ETO (Early Termination Option) for 2011, meaning he can jump ship and enter free agency should he elect to do so. Nene loves Denver and wants…

  9. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  10. Are we going to see LeBron’s post-up game?

    Jan 21, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    At 6-9 and an estimated 270 pounds, LeBron James is the same size as Blake Griffin and Karl Malone. He usually has at least 30 or 40 pounds on anybody who guards him. He is one of the strongest players in the league, and has no problem finishing inside with either hand. All of those…

  11. Phil Jackson thinks the Celtics will win the East

    Jan 19, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Legendary coach Phil Jackson has never been shy about using the media to take not-so-sly shots at rival teams, players, and coaches, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop any time soon. In an interview with ESPN 710’s Max Kellerman earlier today, Jackson said that he thinks the Boston Celtics will win the…

  12. Lil’ Wayne smacks LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    Rapper Lil’ Wayne is one of the handful of those lucky Americans who can afford courtside NBA seats — thank you very much “Lollipop.” But when you’re paying for those seats, say to see the Miami Heat take on the New Orleans Hornets, you expect a little respect. Especially when everyone else was smacking LeBron…

  13. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  14. Thibodeau defends Asik’s play

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    After Chris Bosh got injured in a collision with Chicago Bulls forward Omer Asik during Saturday’s game, he was critical of Asik after the game for diving after a loose ball that was close to Bosh’s legs. Asik didn’t come all that close to the ball, but he did end up making contact with Bosh’s…

  15. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  16. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  17. Chris Bosh leaves game with sprained ankle; not considered serious

    Jan 16, 2011, 7:50 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Chris Bosh left the Miami Heat’s game against the Bulls Saturday in the fourth quarter and did not return to action. Postgame X-rays showed no damage and the sprain is considered not serious, according to ESPN, but he likely will have an MRI soon just to confirm that. No word on whether or not he…

  18. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

  19. ‘Melo says it’s all about winning. Trade to Nets moves closer. Do those two things go together?

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    It’s getting close. The Nuggets, Nets and Pistons are still negotiating, hammering out the final details of a proposed blockbuster trade, something the Denver Post and multiple other sources are reporting. The details could be finalized the first part of next week, after the Nuggets finish their road trip Sunday night. Then it all falls…

  20. How do contending teams perform in the fourth quarter?

    Jan 15, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Always Be Closing. That’s the name of the game, isn’t it? Great teams close out strong. They finish well together. They’re able to end games with finality. It’s that ability to lock down in the fourth quarter and finish teams off that separates the men from the boys. Young, weak teams can’t get it done,…

  21. Chris Bosh offers advice to Denver’s front office

    Jan 14, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    Last season, we all pretty much knew Chris Bosh was out of Toronto. He didn’t push for a trade and kept hinting he might re-sign, the Raptors in retrospect should have pushed him to sign and extension or get dealt, but they didn’t. Everyone just rode out the season. So his situation was not exactly…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Two entertaining games and some ice cold Heat

    Jan 14, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Durant Westbrook

    What you missed while thinking about the worst things people call food…. Thunder 125, Magic 124: Two teams that will make their bones in the playoffs on defense set it aside for a night, and that led to one really entertaining game. To be fair, there was a lot of hot offensive talent on the…

  23. LeBron out Thursday against Nuggets due to ankle sprain

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:20 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is going to miss his first game of the season Thursday, sitting out the game in Denver against the Nuggets. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called James “doubtful” and since then multiple reports have him sitting out. James Jones will start in James’ place. LeBron was limping pretty badly when he rolled his ankle…

  24. LeBron James says he is day-to-day with sprained ankle

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:45 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    In the fourth quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Clippers — yes, the Heat lost to the Clippers, you read that right — LeBron James attacked the basket and after a missed layup rolled his ankle as he landed and he tried to keep weight off it as he ended up 10 feet off…

  25. LeBron says nothing personal in tweet about Cleveland

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Remember last night, after the Cavaliers Poseidon Adventure-level disaster against the Lakers in a 55-point loss, LeBron let out what seemed a pretty personal shot via twitter? Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! Well, before tonight’s game against the Clippers James…
