Miami Heat

  1. Miami Heat may be taking their training camp talents to the panhandle

    Sep 14, 2010, 2:15 PM EST

    There are going to be a hurricane of media attention swirling around the Miami Heat this season. That is going to start at training camp day one and follow them everywhere, all season. It’s the price of the coup. But for training camp, when the Heat will be trying to mold and meld a lot…

  2. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: Are the Heat good for basketball?

    Sep 14, 2010, 12:32 PM EST

    Another day, another edition of Crosstalk. Today’s topic: The Miami Heat. Resolved: The Miami Heat (as we now know them) are good for basketball. Rob Mahoney: It is better to be feared than respected. That’s the truism that LeBron James is betting on, as he single-handedly sabotaged his own image while creating one of the most…

  3. LeBron now sixth most hated sports figure according to Q Score

    Sep 14, 2010, 11:08 AM EST

    It didn’t take a rocket scientist to know that LeBron James’s popularity had taken a hit in the wake of his move this summer and “The Decision.” The ability to read and log on to message boards could have told you that. Now we have some numbers to back it up. CNBC’s sports business reporter…

  4. LeBron James skips OSU/Miami after he can't get a police escort

    Sep 13, 2010, 4:36 PM EST

    Oh, LeBron. We know you’re not just a big walking ego. We get why you went to Miami and that you took less money to do it. We think the trio of you in Miami is going to work out. We’re not on board with the “hate all things LeBron” trend that seems to have…

  5. Dwyane Wade has gotten some grief, but he's happy it's nothing like LeBron

    Sep 13, 2010, 3:39 PM EST

    Ah, we are happily part of this Internet media age, when we can pass along a story on Dwyane Wade responding to comments Pat Riley made to chastise comments on Stan Van Gundy and Charles Barkley…. Wade talked with friend/contributor/bon vivant of this blog Ira Winderman, in his role as the Heat and NBA writer…

  6. Jermaine O'Neal says he chose Boston because they have walked the walk

    Sep 13, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    Jermaine O’Neal had options this summer — he was a skilled big man who would be playing for a very affordable contract. Two contenders in the East wanted him, Miami and Boston. O’Neal has been near the top looking down on the rest of the league before, with Indiana in the pre-brawl years. It was…

  7. LeBron James says he tried to repay Cleveland on the court, is ready for change

    Sep 13, 2010, 12:49 PM EST

    Does LeBron James owe Cleveland anything? LeBron has been at the center of the NBA universe this summer, but has said very little personally to the media (we’re not really counting The Decision as hard-hitting questions). There are a lot of questions to be asked, and Lang Whitaker of SLAM covered many of them a…

  8. Stan Van Gundy fires back at Pat Riley's verbal retaliation

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:22 AM EST

    I’m pretty sure we’ve got a bonafide war of words on our hands. Stan Van Gundy responded Saturday to Pat Riley’s comments about himself and Magic GM Otis Smith and their criticism of the Heat. In an interview with the Magic’s website, Van Gundy laughed at what he considers to me a double-standard with Riley.…

  9. Pat Riley fires back at Charles Barkley, Stan Van Gundy and all you Heat haters

    Sep 10, 2010, 2:43 PM EST

    Pat Riley is done biting his tongue. He’s spent the last two months listening to people criticize his players and their wanting to play on one team and he’s had it. Not as much with the media and bloggers — although I have yet to receive a bouquet of roses — but with the people…

  10. LeBron James at point guard? Dwyane Wade? Miami is thinking about it.

    Sep 10, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers may be the official Miami Heat starting point guard come Oct. 26, but as we’ve said before his role will not be the same as Rajon Rondo’s or Deron Williams or most other point guards. That’s because both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade like to create with the ball in their hands. They…

  11. Jim Tressel, Terrelle Pryor urge OSU fans not to boo LeBron James

    Sep 9, 2010, 6:01 PM EST

    Nobody is quite sure what will happen when Miami Heat forward LeBron James returns to Cleveland when the Cavaliers play the Heat. With Dan Gilbert’s letter, the anger about LeBron’s “Decision,” and all those burned jerseys, it certainly seems like things could get dicey when James returns to the Quicken Loans Arena.  A preview of…

  12. Dwyane Wade in court for custody battle for sons

    Sep 9, 2010, 11:03 AM EST

    A court case with lawyers arguing and a judge deciding where two children should live is nobody’s idea of a good situation. But it’s the one Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade found themselves in yesterday. Custody of the twin boys is the latest step in a nasty divorce between the two. As is…

  13. Jarrett Jack wonders about Miami's chemistry: Someone will happily be option three?

    Sep 9, 2010, 10:09 AM EST

    The “is this Miami trio really going to work?” questions are out there. This has worked before in other places — from Boston and the Lakers in the 80s, Boston in the 1960s, even today’s Celtics — because guys were willing to make the sacrifice on the court. There has to be give, three guys…

  14. Can Mario Chalmers become the Heat's spot-up guy?

    Sep 7, 2010, 3:21 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers will be the starting point guard on opening night for the Miami Heat. But he will be a point guard in name only, at least in the classic definition. With Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on the floor, Chalmers will not be the guy with the ball in his hands dictating the offensive…

  15. Miami homeless advocates refusing free LeBron James gear from Cleveland

    Sep 5, 2010, 11:31 AM EST

    The homeless in Miami don’t want your LeBron James gear. Well, they may want it. We don’t know. We do know that advocates for the homeless in Miami have been reticent to accept free LeBron James clothing. Remember after LeBron James’ decision there were LeBron jerseys being burned in the streets of Cleveland. So some…

  16. Isiah Thomas defends LeBron's right to choose, but says he should have chosen New York

    Sep 5, 2010, 10:13 AM EST

    Like all of New York it seems, Isiah Thomas has been hanging out in Queens the last week or so. The US Open is in town and Roger Federer is putting on a show. (So did Andy Roddick, but that’s another story all together.) NBA writer Marc Berman of the New York Post approached Thomas…

  17. Oscar Robertson would ask that you kindly get off LeBron's back

    Sep 5, 2010, 9:05 AM EST

    There’s a chance, remote as it may be, that LeBron James may average a triple-double this season. And yet, even in dominating the league with spectacular play, he will be booed, hated upon, reviled for his decision to leave Miami. But the man that invented the triple double, NBA Hall-of-Fame legend Oscar Robertson thinks people…

  18. LeBron's search for family, stability led him to Miami

    Sep 4, 2010, 12:14 PM EST

    LeBron James decision was not a simple one. Strip away the show and the made-for-media presentations the other teams had to put on — the things for which James has been heavily criticized — and you get to a decision that was about the core of who LeBron James is. There were two key factors…

  19. Video: Chris Bosh gets to work

    Sep 4, 2010, 9:09 AM EST

    First we saw LeBron James’ video of his first workout with the Heat. Now the team has released a second video profiling Chris Bosh at the Heat training facility, working out with coaches and trainers. There’s nothing in it to make any significant observations from, of course. But it is interesting to look at the…

  20. LeBron James is underpaid

    Sep 3, 2010, 10:33 AM EST

    While LeBron James was still deciding where to take his talents, a fun bar stool/message board discussion was how much would LeBron be offered in a non-capped open market? $30 million a year? $40 million? But the market is capped, and LeBron will start making $14.5 million this season. Which is a real bargain, according…

  21. Heat's Da'Sean Butler tweets a children's story. About a purple dinosaur. It's a little weird.

    Sep 2, 2010, 1:41 PM EST

    Sentences I never thought I would type include: The Miami Heat’s Da’Sean Butler has tweeted a children’s story. That involves Barney a purple dinosaur and “Family Guy.” But there you have it. It’s true. He tweeted a long story about a children’s dinosaur. Our own Ira Winderman, writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, spent…

  22. LeBron James family portrait, apparently from Sears

    Sep 2, 2010, 12:25 PM EST

    I love that LeBron James is posting his family portraits. That he is being a real dad. As a father myself, I love this photo of him and the kids that looks like every other family portrait in America… well, except for the two NBA MVP trophies in his hands. It’s cute. But as Weed…

  23. Carlos Boozer's expectations for Bulls: "A championship"

    Sep 2, 2010, 9:53 AM EST

    The Miami Heat are the trendy choice, what with three of the best players on the planet on one team. The Lakers have the Trophy. Boston had it a couple years ago. Orlando has been on the cusp recently. But Carlos Boozer likes how his Chicago Bulls look and think they should be in the…

  24. Miami Heat hurting: Mario Chalmers may miss start of training camp

    Sep 1, 2010, 5:53 PM EST

    When we talked about he team with the biggest injury risks in the East, everyone brings up the older Boston Celtics, as if Paul Pierce might break a hip during training camp. But it looks like the Miami Heat might be the banged up team at the start of training camp, that according to Ira…

  25. LeBron James, Mo Williams talk it out

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:07 AM EST

    In the wake of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after LeBron James made his announcement about his talents, one set of tweets in particular stood out: Cavaliers teammate Mo Williams — one of LeBron’s closer friends on the team — felt hurt and said so in his twitter account. ”We were so damn…
