Miami Heat

  1. Chris Bosh (or one of his people) is still confused about social media rules

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:05 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it. The odds of it actually being…

  2. Wade has the flu, may or may not play against Bobcats

    Nov 19, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    Wade_Timberlake

    According to the twitter account of our own Ira Winderman, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is sick with the flu, and coach Erik Spolestra is “unsure” whether or not he’ll play against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight. In other Heat news, forward Juwan Howard will be receiving a mask for his broken nose and has been…

  3. Chris Bosh not chill on reaction to “chill” (and he talks rebounds)

    Nov 19, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Ira Winderman talked about it the other day — the Heat are adjusting as much to the media scrutiny and the circus off the court with them as they are on the court. Every word they say gets dissected. Like when Chris Bosh said that coach Erik Spoelstra wants to practice and “we wanna chill.”…

  4. Miami did the right thing getting rid of Michael Beasley. For both sides.

    Nov 18, 2010, 3:25 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The renaissance of Michael Beasley is in full swing in Minnesota. In the last three games he has put up 33, 28, and 25 points, on 56 percent shooting, and he is 6 of 9 from three. Plus he’s got that hair. He has been the focal point of the Timberwolves offense and he had…

  5. Miami Heat reminds its fans how to be, um, fans

    Nov 18, 2010, 2:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    The Miami Heat have the most star-studded roster east of Los Angeles — but they don’t want their fans to be like Lakers fans. Well, they want them to be rich and willing to pay for overpriced seats like Lakers fans. But they don’t want the Los Angeles fans reputation of showing up late to…

  6. Winderman: Cold dissection of every Miami Heat word may lead to fewer of them

    Nov 18, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    LeBron_media

    The media work room at AmericanAirlines Arena is the last thing you would expect in South Florida. It is a frosty experience. How cold? A certain transplanted journalist brought in to cover the team this season has been known to wear a ski cap while filing his articulate-yet-arctic postgame viewpoints. Yet the chill doesn’t stop…

  7. Quote of the Night: Chris Bosh wants to chill

    Nov 18, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh Chilling

    “[Heat coach Erik Spoelstra] knows he has to meet us halfway. He wants to work, we wanna chill, but we’re going to have to work to get everything down, to get our timing down, and to get our chemistry down.” — Heat forward Chris Bosh, after a breakout 35-point performance in a dominant win over…

  8. Like a Bosh, the video

    Nov 17, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    The guys at The Basketball Jones are just bloody brilliant. Because nobody could sum up Chris Bosh’s career in rap better than some white guys from Toronto… okay that sounds weird, but it really does work.

  9. One book that will not be a love letter to LeBron

    Nov 16, 2010, 9:27 PM EDT

    James_chalk

    Scott Raab of Esquire is harder on LeBron James than just about anyone – when it was announced that LeBron was nominated for the TIME Man of the Year award, he mentioned that Hitler was nominated for it once. Or, you can get a feel for his take on James by reading this latest piece…

  10. What really matters is the Heat are blowing out bad teams. Seriously.

    Nov 16, 2010, 4:12 PM EDT

    Heat_handgesture

    It’s an interesting NBA statistical trend — how many 15 points blowout wins a team gets a season is a better indicator of how they will do in the playoffs than how many less-than-5-point wins they gutted out. It’s counter-intuitive, good teams are supposed to win close games, right? We’ve been told that forever. But…

  11. Mark Cuban and Miami Heat schadenfreude

    Nov 16, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    Mark Cuban may not know what the word schadenfreude means, but he knows the feeling. This what he said to ESPN Radio Dallas (via Sports Radio Interviews). “Hallelujah, boys, is that great or what? … How cool is that? Now, they could still turn it around and win out for all that matters, but you’re…

  12. LeBron James nominated for TIME “Person of the Year” award

    Nov 15, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Well, that was unexpected. TIME Magazine just released its list of 25 nominees for its annual “Person of the Year” award, and Heat forward and Controversial Person LeBron James is one of them. After “the decision,” the 25-year old James has never been less popular, but he’s also never been more in the news. Since…

  13. The Heat don’t need Erick Dampier, but they could surely use him

    Nov 15, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    Erick Dampier

    Count me among those that sees Miami’s rough start as a temporary turmoil. It’s only a matter of time before the pieces start clicking just right, if only because the level of talent between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade breaks dimensional bounds and head coach Erik Spoelstra won’t rest until the offense is structured and…

  14. Heat considering starting lineup changes, but options limited

    Nov 12, 2010, 11:54 PM EDT

    LeBron James,  Dwayne Wade, Joel Anthony, Chris Bosh, Carlos Arroyo

    It is way too early to panic in Miami. If you thought it was as simple as just rolling out the basketball, well, you’re one of those people that thinks Phil Jackson has just been lucky. Eleven times. It was going to take time to figure out how to activate both LeBron James and Dwyane…

  15. Heat’s Mike Miller wants to be back for the Lakers on Christmas

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    MMiller_heat

    While the rest of us are filled with a slight dread thinking about Christmas — unless you’re one of those organized a—— who has finished their shopping already — Mike Miller is counting down the days like a six-year-old. He’s set that day as the new goal for his return to the Heat lineup. The…

  16. Paul Pierce mocks LeBron in postgame tweet

    Nov 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Just another one of the 82, nothing special about this game… yeah, right. Lest you think the Celtics didn’t get a little extra enjoyment out of last night’s win over Miami, check out Paul Pierce’s postgame tweet: It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis LeBron can add…

  17. Rajon Rondo dunks, Chris Bosh has a good view of it

    Nov 12, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/lPZnGf2X-pw?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Chris Bosh is taking a lot of heat for his general play Thursday night, in particular this defensive rotation, or lack of rotation, that gave Rajon Rondo a clear path to the rim. We’re not going to pile on. We think the embarrassment of getting dunked on like that should be punishment enough.

  18. Game of the night: The running of the Celtics

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:30 AM EDT

    PPierce_celebrate

    Boston is supposed to be the old men. Miami is supposed to be the young bucks unstoppable in transition. Then why is it that that all night long Boston was the team pushing the ball in transition, getting some easy buckets on the run? Miami was slowed, hesitant. It speaks to where these teams are…

  19. Phil Jackson says Lakers can’t win 70, but Heat could

    Nov 11, 2010, 10:36 PM EDT

    Jackson_ring

    Phil Jackson is in mid-season mind games form. People have started asking if the 8-0 Lakers could win 72 games — they’ve looked pretty dominant and they don’t even have Andrew Bynum in the fold yet. It’s not going to happen, we all know it and Phil Jackson has said so before. But when asked…

  20. Losses? Whatever. Record numbers watching Miami Heat games.

    Nov 11, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Miami Heat taking on the Utah Jazz in November set a record for the most watched regular season Heat game in the history of the Sun Sports television network. Think about that for a second. November against the Jazz earned a 7.2 rating and that beat anything in the Shaquille O’Neal era. The title…

  21. Shaq likely play tonight against Miami

    Nov 11, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    Oneal_peace

    Shaquille O’Neal went through morning shoot around with the Boston Celtics and Doc Rivers said after practice there is a “good chance” he will to play Thursday night in a marquee showdown against Miami. Jermaine O’Neal did not go through anything with the team this morning. So while both O’Neals are listed as game time…

  22. Report: Miami, Phoenix start talking to Erick Dampier again

    Nov 11, 2010, 11:21 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_dampier_268-thumb-250x363-21300.jpg for post 6324

    The Erick Dampier free agency experiment really has defied easy explanation. He was bought out by the Charlotte Bobcats back well before the season to save cash, that was a given. Then we expected he would latch on pretty quickly somewhere — he’s a serviceable backup big man who would play for near the minimum,…

  23. Miami ready to push back on physical play

    Nov 11, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The first edition of the “how to beat Miami” book is out around the league — and there is a whole chapter on “pushing them around.” Being physical. Miami is ready to push back, they told ESPN. “You have to anticipate that teams are going to be physical with us … are going to try…

  24. Miami still figuring out how to use Chris Bosh

    Nov 11, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Every fanbase seems to pick someone on the team to be their whipping boy — the guy whose fault it is, even when it isn’t. Someone to be the lightning rod of fan wrath. In Miami, it seems to have become Chris Bosh. And with the now national Heat fan base, he has taken incoming…

  25. Magic Johnson says that Miami is responsible for Los Angeles’ dominant start

    Nov 10, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    Lakers_Barnes_defense

    The Miami Heat have had their ups and downs over the first eight regular-season games, but at least they can take some credit for the Los Angeles Lakers’ absolute dominance in the early part of the NBA season. That probably wouldn’t cheer Miami up, of course, but Magic Johnson says it’s the truth: Magic Johnson…
