    Tuesday LeBron James turned the spotlight on some of the ugly, hateful tweets he gets. The dark underbelly of the connection to the public that twitter and other social media allow. Dwight Howard told the Orlando Sentinel LeBron’s experience on twitter is not unique. “All of us get those kinds of Tweets,” Howard said. “People…

  2. LeBron understands Clevelanders’ anger, “But you have to get over it.”

    LeBron James gets it. He can put himself in their shoes. He understands why the people in his hometown might feel betrayed, why Clevelanders would be angry. Well, a little bit. But he also says you can’t hold on to the anger forever, as he told Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. “If I was a fan…

  3. Bookmakers make Heat title favorites. Magic are best odds on the board.

    The Miami Heat are the favorites to with the NBA crown this season. Not according to most pundits, they have them close but not quite (although some have picked them). But yes according to the bookmakers at Bodog.com. Here are their odds to win the NBA title: Miami Heat                       17/10 Los Angeles Lakers            5/2 Boston…

  4. Report: Heat’s Mike Miller has serious thumb injury

    Oct 21, 2010, 6:53 PM EST

    MMiller_heat

    UPDATE 6:52 pm: No official word from the Heat yet, but the discussion is if he will need surgery or not, and it looks like an end of November to mid December return. That would be a blow to the Heat, a team built around three stars with a pretty limited bench. Miller was at…

  5. LeBron brings sunshine to some vile “haters”

    Oct 20, 2010, 4:19 PM EST

    jamespreseason

    The great thing about social media like Twitter is it opens us up to all the people of the world. The bad thing about Twitter is that some people we’re exposed to are just scum. Nobody knows that like professional athletes. There are plenty of “haters” of LeBron James out there, but Tuesday he decided…

  6. All those nagging Miami Heat injuries will disappear next Tuesday

    Oct 20, 2010, 2:27 PM EST

    LeBron_Wade_bench

    Dwyane Wade has his sore hamstring. Mike Miller has a sprained ankle. LeBron James had his sore hamstring and may or may not still have a sore elbow. Mario Chalmers ankle is still acting up. Next Tuesday it will be like the Heat visited Lourdes. When the games matter the nagging injuries will vanish, as…

  7. Heat waive Shavlik Randolph, Kenny Hasbrouck

    The end of the Heat bench — the guys we’re talking about today then likely not mentioning again all season — is starting to shake itself out. The Heat have cut loose Shavlik Randolph and Kenny Hasbrouck, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel on twitter. What that means is that there is one…

  8. Eddie House to practice with Heat Wednesday, play Thursday

    Oct 19, 2010, 6:48 PM EST

    housefinger

    Eddie House has been cleared to get off the bench and go… well, to the Miami Heat bench. But from there get in the game. House has been out of training camp, recovering from off-season shoulder surgery, but doctors cleared him on Tuesday, according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman, writing for the…

  9. Winderman: What 29 other teams? League hops on Heat hype express, too.

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    LeBron_moscow

    So exactly how embarrassed is the NBA about the rest of its product? How uncomfortable is the league with its other 29 teams that after an offseason of decrying the arrogance of the Miami Heat and the team’s Big Three, the league jumps aboard the hype express? If you haven’t seen yet, TNT announced it…

  10. In case you were at all worried, LeBron James looks just fine

    Oct 19, 2010, 1:11 AM EST

    LeBron_heat_chalk

    The Miami Heat have been racking up injuries this preseason like an NFL team so far, including LeBron James missing some time with a tight hamstring. If you were worried that hamstring was going to linger, worry no more — James moved well, had his jumper going and had 33 points on 10 of 17.…

  11. Heat fans skip several steps, chant “Beat L.A” during scrimmage

    Oct 17, 2010, 11:52 PM EST

    Heat_Fans

    We don’t really know how good this Heat team will be — the big three have spent just over three minutes together on the court so far. It’s been a bit of a wasted preseason for the Heat. The players get it and have said they are not looking too far ahead yet. The fans……

  12. Eddie House has a one-finger answer to all the Heat critics

    Oct 17, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    housefinger

    Lost in the immense number of stories about the Heat this summer, from the obvious LeBron James-Dwyane Wade-Chris Bosh meetup to Zydrunas Ilgauskas joining James to Mike Miller as the designated shooter and Udonis Haslem as the tough guy was the signing of Eddie House. And while there’s a lot of talk about how the…

  13. LeBron will practice, may play Monday

    Oct 16, 2010, 4:52 PM EST

    jamespreseason

    Sure, there have been concerns about the Heat’s health. Wade will miss the rest of the preseason with a hamstring injury. Mike Miller’s banged up, as are Jamal Magloire and Mario Chalmers. And then LeBron James had some soreness in his hamstring, which kept him out of the game against the Hornets and practice. Talk…

  14. Dwyane Wade heads to Chicago for custody hearing

    Image (1) Wade_dunk-thumb-250x265-8166.jpg for post 1074

    Dwyane Wade wasn’t going to take the court and practice with he Miami Heat today — his lingering hamstring injury would have seen to that — but Wade had a more important place to be today anyway. He is in Chicago to testify in a custody case for his twin sons, part of his divorce…

  15. Ron Artest’s top two in the NBA: Kobe, Durant… and no LeBron

    Oct 15, 2010, 10:52 AM EST

    lebron-james-ron-artest

    There are guys whose names consistently come up in the “best in the game” discussion — Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and now Kevin Durant. So, if you ask somebody — anybody — to list them, one of them has to come in third. If you ask Ron Artest (like ESPNLosAngeles.com did), he says Kobe is…

  16. LeBron James named to Fortune’s “40 under 40″ list

    Oct 14, 2010, 7:38 PM EST

    Image (1) LeBron_Heat-thumb-250x359-19591-thumb-250x359-19592.jpg for post 4295

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James was the only athlete to be named to Fortune Magazine’s annual “40 under 40″ list. At 25 years of age, James was the youngest person on the list, which included few people under 30. (James edged out the 26-year old Mark Zuckerberg for “youngest on the list” honors, although Zuckerberg…

  17. The status of LeBron James hamstring… not that bad

    Oct 14, 2010, 10:15 AM EST

    LeBron_moscow

    LeBron James sat out Wednesday night’s Heat preseason game, joining Dwyane Wade in some normally very expensive courtside seats. So how bad is the hamstring injury he suffered the game before? Not that bad, the team says. The Heat are just being cautious because it’s preseason, coach Erik Spoelstra told Ira Winderman of the Sun…

  18. Winderman: Preseason a missed opportunity for Heat

    Oct 14, 2010, 12:21 AM EST

    LeBron_Wade_bench

    The team that would challenge 72-10 is 2-2 (unless you insist on counting a victory over CSKA Moscow, then it is 3-2). Of course, the team that would challenge 72-10 has been on true display for a grand total of 3 minutes, 17 seconds. That was when Dwyane Wade was lost in the exhibition opener…

  19. LeBron leaves game in third quarter with leg cramps; will sit Wednesday

    Oct 12, 2010, 10:49 PM EST

    LeBron_moscow

    That noise you heard around 9:30 tonight was just the sigh of relief coming from Miami. James left the Heat’s game against CSKA Moscow with 3:21 left in the third quarter showing a pronounced limp. He went back to the locker room and word spread that it was a hamstring injury (the same thing that…

  20. Bosh meets president, surprised Obama knew who he was. Really?

    Oct 12, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

    Image (1) bosh-heat-thumb-250x140-17979.jpg for post 3618

    Chris Bosh is used to a little bit of NBA anonymity. Well, as much anonymity as one gets being a 7-foot tall, NBA All-Star. Maybe it’s a Canada thing, but he felt in the shadows. Now Chris Bosh has jumped up a few levels on the notoriety scale, everybody knows who he is. Even if…

  21. Wade “virtually pain free” but Heat still taking their time

    Oct 12, 2010, 7:45 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_wade1_250.jpg for post 264

    The Miami Heat take the floor again on Tuesday, and again without Dwyane Wade. That’s not dire, but it slows the cohesion that the Heat really need. However there are good signs, as was tweeted by Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. [Heat coach Erik] Spoelstra on Wade; “Dwayne is making progress. He’s virtually pain…

  22. Heat realize Lakers, Magic and Celtics have a jump

    Oct 12, 2010, 2:13 AM EST

    Heat_bench

    Two weeks until the season tips off, and teams are not looking the same in camp. The Miami Heat are still learning the offense, the defense and how to play with each other. All without Dwyane Wade, who is still out with a sore hamstring for at least another week. Eddie House and Carlos Arroyo…

    WBGG — Big 105.9  in Miami — has it all. Classic rock all week, so you can get your Foreigner fix, with Miami Dolphin and Miami Heat games. It’s the perfect mix (if you actually like Foreigner for some inexplicable reason)… Unless the Heat and Dolphins have games at same time, and both have contracts…

  24. LeBron on his elbow: “It was pretty bad.”

    Oct 11, 2010, 10:54 AM EST

    Image (1) James_solo-thumb-250x140-11404.jpg for post 1906

    LeBron James has been pretty tight lipped about his elbow injury last season, which led to plenty of speculation about what really happened. But LeBron opened up a little to Lang Whitaker of SLAM (something Tom Ziller of FanHouse noted happened a little a while ago but only appeared in the printed magazine, not online,…

  25. Pat Riley has Doc at the top of the list.

    Oct 9, 2010, 10:11 AM EST

    riversheat

    See, now, if this is true, it is neither cool nor fair, nor unexpected. We already told you about the Yahoo! Sports post that indicates Doc might want to hang with the Celtics for a while. But in the middle of that post is another tasty nugget for you. From the inevitable Adrian Wojnarowski: Rivers…
