Miami Heat

  1. Dampier visits with Raptors, but no deal worked out

    Oct 1, 2010, 8:25 AM EST

    The Miami Heat said no. The Milwaukee Bucks signed someone else. There has been no deal with the Houston Rockets. Erick Dampier is a man without a team. Which is a little odd — as a minimum-salary backup center he should be a good fit, but teams are not jumping on board. For whatever reason.…

  2. LeBron James, Dr. Dre selling you some headphones

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:10 PM EST

    LeBron — who you can be pretty sure did not pay for his Power Beats even though he could afford it much more easily than you — and Dr. Dre take part in a pretty amusing new campaign for the headphones (or ear buds or whatever you want to call them). http://www.youtube.com/v/QiGNvZ8YTos?fs=1&hl=en_US&rel=0&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0x999999

  3. Kobe’s jersey biggest seller in Europe

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:43 AM EST

    Kobe’s the man, doesn’t matter what side of the pond you are on. The NBA released the top jerseys sold in Europe and Kobe Bryant tops the list. As he does in the United States. And China. And everywhere jerseys are sold (except Boston). This is Kobe’s third straight year atop the Europe list. Rounding…

  4. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade leading by example at Heat camp

    Sep 29, 2010, 6:39 PM EST

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have been “The Man” for years, wherever they have been. Their team. Their show. Lead by example not just words. We don’t know much of what has gone on so far at Heat training camp, tucked as far away from the media spotlight and prying eyes as the Heat could…

  5. NBA Season Preview: The Miami Heat

    Sep 29, 2010, 12:42 PM EST

    Last season: 47-35, fifth seed in the East. Their reward for that? The Boston Celtics in the first round. Ouch. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who is one of the best young minds in the game and a Pat Riley protégé. Which means Riley is not going to go Stan Van Gundy on him this season…

  6. Crazy LeBron, trying to keep expectations within reason

    Sep 29, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Hey LeBron James, not only do you have to lead your just thrown-together team to an NBA title, can you average a triple-double for the season while doing it? I mean, Oscar Robertson averaged that in 1962, and today’s game is pretty much exactly like that, right? You can totally do it. Hey, but no…

  7. Winderman: Heat not hosting your ordinary training camp

    Sep 28, 2010, 7:51 PM EST

    So how do you get to the Heat’s secluded training camp in the Florida Panhandle? Well, from most places, you get there by connecting through Atlanta. And then, from the airport, you get there by driving past one Waffle House, then another, and then another. But that actually doesn’t get you anywhere, at least not…

  8. Video: Heat at media day, talking team

    Sep 28, 2010, 6:30 PM EST

    We’ve been telling you what has been going on with the Heat the last couple days, but here are the words of the men themselves at Heat media day in Miami Monday. Before they headed off to an Air Force Base training camp.

  9. Timberwolves using Michael Beasley at small forward, they may want to ask Miami about that

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:29 PM EST

    Reports out of Timberwolves camp say that Michael Beasley is playing the three spot, according to the Pioneer Press. Which makes some sense when you think Kevin Love needs to be the starting power forward for Minnesota. Except… Maybe the T-Wolves should call up the Heat and ask how Beasley worked out at the three…

  10. Heat first practice "intense," LeBron has ice on elbow

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:30 PM EST

    There was no discussion of it and it is probably nothing, but you had to notice — LeBron James had an ice pack on his right elbow, the one that gave him problems though the playoffs, after the Heat’s first day of practice Tuesday. What should we read into that? Not much. NBA teams go…

  11. LeBron James' house is nicer than yours

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:25 PM EST

    In case you were worried that LeBron James would be sleeping on a cot at American Airlines Arena, you can relax. The King has found his castle. NBCMiami.com has pictures of the home that you can’t afford (well, except for you, Mr. Cuban). It’s in Coconut Grove, the Hughes Cove neighborhood, and went for a…

  12. NBA season ticket sales up to start season

    Sep 28, 2010, 12:05 PM EST

    Add a check to the players’ side of the column in the ongoing Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations… NBA season ticket sales are well up over a year ago and that could mean $100 million more in revenue for the league, according to the South Florida Business Journal. Through Sept. 22, NBA teams had sold more…

  13. Heat leave Miami for a little peace, but the throng follows

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:43 AM EST

    The Miami Heat plane had plenty of radar tracking it as it landed at 10 p.m. last night at Eglin Air Force Base. As the team came down the stairs, they were greeted by a crowd that had been there three hours to see them. Such is the life of the Miami Heat now —…

  14. Orlando believe 12 is better than three when it comes to Miami Heat

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:07 PM EST

    If you like messin’ with Sasquatch, then go to an Orlando Magic practice and start asking questions about the Miami Heat. Pretty much the same reaction. Orlando general manager Otis Smith led the “hey, maybe they should play a game before we anoint them” cries, as reported by FanHouse. “They’ve got three, and we’re solid…

  15. Miami Heat's big three talk controversy, but they'd like to just play some ball

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:48 PM EST

    Enough with the speculation, let’s roll the balls out on the court and play. Finally. That was the core of what LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh said when they sat down in front of the press at Heat media day Monday in Miami (televised on ESPN). They sat down with Wade in the…

  16. Is Chris Bosh a leader? Not in Toronto, according to coach

    Sep 27, 2010, 2:24 PM EST

    Part of the problem in Toronto last season, part of the reason the Raptors folded and did not make the playoffs, was a lack of leadership in that locker room. That according to Raptors coach Jay Triano, who also told Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel that you better not expect leadership out of Bosh…

  17. Michael Beasley, soon to discover golf's winter rules

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Miami has seemingly countless clubs and ways for players to get into trouble. The other thing it has seemingly countless numbers of is golf courses. Ones you can play on pretty much 365. To Michael Beasley’s credit, when he got frustrated and down while disappointing the fans and staff in Miami, he sought solace on…

  18. Erick Dampier says it's down to four teams, Portland now in mix

    Sep 27, 2010, 9:59 AM EST

    Erick Dampier made a decision, he wanted to take his backup center talents to South Beach, like everyone else. But for reasons not totally clear, Miami didn’t want him (Damps is not a great center, but he’s better than anyone they’ve got). So he’s taking his time making another decision. He told Sam Amick of…

  19. Toronto is the new, slightly gimpy horse in the race for Erick Dampier's services

    Sep 27, 2010, 8:30 AM EST

    A union between Erick Dampier and the Miami Heat apparently made too much sense to come to fruition. Now, rather than the serviceable big man going to the championship contending team a bit lacking in serviceable big men, Dampier will likely land with another playoff-caliber squad. Or maybe the Toronto Raptors. According to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  20. Kobe Bryant on LeBron James, his finger

    Sep 26, 2010, 9:10 PM EST

    LeBron James is in Miami. The Larry O’Brien trophy is still in Los Angeles. And if you think it will be easy to pry it out of this guy’s fingers — whatever shape they are in — you are bat guano crazy. Here Kobe talks about his ailing finger then LeBron James.  

  21. Unraveling the hatred of LeBron James and the Miami Heat

    Sep 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    The Heat have new fans coming out of the woodwork, but the massive backlash against the assemblage of talent in Miami has been absolutely impressive. It’s understandable that people would disapprove of LeBron James’ decision to ditch his “hometown” Cleveland Cavaliers for another team. It’s even more understandable that people would be opposed to the…

  22. Miami Heat step out of Erick Dampier running

    Sep 24, 2010, 6:43 PM EST

    Erick Damper will not be taking his talents to South Beach, although why remains a mystery. The Miami Heat have said they have stepping away from the race to bring in center free agent Erick Dampier. Michael Wallace of the Miami Herald broke the news in a couple of tweets Heat pass on adding free…

  23. Pat Riley: "We feel we have done something special for our franchise"

    Sep 24, 2010, 3:10 PM EST

    Pat Riley is feeling good about this team. Pat Riley should be feeling good about his team. Here is the man himself from a recent press conference.  

  24. Mark Cuban not done banging on the Heat, says they're a team "only locals can love"

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:24 AM EST

    Okay Mark, we get it. Mark Cuban thinks people will hate the new Miami Heat, then will tune in to watch and root against them. And that at the end of the day that is good for the league because people are watching and involved. Cuban did a chat with the Fort Worth Star Telegram…

  25. Want to see the Heat at Madison Square Garden? It's gonna cost you.

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:25 AM EST

    Welcome to the world of variable ticket pricing. You know, the idea taking hold in the NBA (and sports generally) that tickets to high profile games will cost more than not-in-demand games. Basic supply and demand economics. So how much more? How about nearly four times as much. Which is more than “variable pricing” and…
