Miami Heat

  1. LeBron’s ridiculous shot

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Heat lost and looked bad doing it. We can talk about that some more, gloat if you want to. Just go ahead and pretend they are never going to figure this all out and start crushing teams. In the mean time, we can still enjoy the ridiculous athlete that is LeBron James, who continues…

  2. Dampier to sign one-year deal with Heat Tuesday

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    dampier

    Watching the Miami Heat lose to the Indiana Pacers Monday night, it became clear they need something. We’ll see if Erick Dampier can be part of that something. Multiple reports have the Miami Heat offering a one-year, minimum deal to Dampier (Ken Berger of CBS was first with this). He is expected to sign it…

  3. With Haslem out, will LeBron see more time at the four?

    Nov 22, 2010, 7:45 PM EDT

    LeBron Post

    Udonis Haslem going down with a torn foot ligament is very bad for the Miami Heat means that the Miami Heat are going to have to make some tough calls regarding their rotation in the coming weeks. Allow me to offer this thought: instead of giving Haslem’s minutes to Juwan Howard, Jamaal Magloire, or increasing…

  4. Heat likely to sign Erick Dampier while Haslem will have surgery on foot

    Nov 22, 2010, 5:54 PM EDT

    Erick Dampier

    Just as the news becomes official that Udonis Haslem will have foot surgery and be out for months, word of his replacement comes in. The Heat are very close to signing Erick Dampier to a contract, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. Dampier had worked out for the Heat this summer and hinted that is…

  5. Heat’s options without Haslem: More Juwan Howard or get another player. Yuck.

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    More Juwan Howard? If this were 1988, that might be a good call for a team, but we’ve all moved on from that year, something evidenced by the fact we no longer consider “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” good music. In 2010 both Howard and Bobby McFerrin should be used only in moderation. But right now,…

  6. Udonis Haslem has ligament tear in foot, out until All-Star break at least

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    UPDATE 10:43 pm: The recovery time on this is a lot worse than we first thought — depending on the surgery or other options, Haslem could be out until the All-Star break in February, if not longer. If you want an idea of how this impacts the Heat: Memphis outrebounded the Heat 16-5 after Haslem…

  7. Game of the night: Where even the Heat have to be asking “What happened?”

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Memphis Grizzlies

    When I say this, please realize that I very badly simply want to credit the Grizzlies with a terrific win. I have no idea what just happened. The Grizzlies beat the Heat in front of what is likely their biggest or second biggest crowd of the season on a Rudy Gay buzzer-beater fadeway baseline jumpshot…

  8. Miami’s Udonis Haslem may have serious foot injury

    Nov 21, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    Udonis Haslem, who has been the heart of the Miami Heat’s defense and the one player who has brought unquestioned effort every night, may be out with a foot injury. He had to be helped off the court during the Heat’s eventual loss to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday. The team said that the X-rays cane…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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.”…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.
