Miami Heat

  1. How does Chicago really feel about Dwyane Wade?

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:04 PM EST

    We get that in Cleveland there is a boiling, overflowing cauldron of hate for LeBron James that has spilled out into the streets and into song. It could have been that way in Chicago — fans there thought for a while they had a real chance to land Dwyane Wade, to bring a favorite son…

  2. Paul Pierce wonders if Miami's big three can make the sacrifices Boston's stars did

    Aug 19, 2010, 8:25 AM EST

    In the summer of 2007, the Boston Celtics put together three superstars to form a championship team, not completely different than Miami did this summer. However Boston’s stars were older and could see the end of their careers, they were past their physical primes but still were (and are) high caliber players. They were guys…

  3. Don't worry Cleveland, John Mayer has your back; will wear Cavs jersey at Miami concert

    Aug 18, 2010, 7:30 PM EST

    Cleveland is “Dreaming With A Broken Heart” after The Decision. Don’t worry Cleveland. John Mayer has your back. Rather than “Waiting on the World To Change” he is going to stir the pot himself. He may even end up on LeBron’s fabled list, even though LeBron is “Bigger Than My Body.” At a recent concert…

  4. Stan Van Gundy: Heat roster better than any of Jordan's Bulls rosters

    Aug 18, 2010, 2:59 PM EST

    No doubt the Heat are going to be good. Very good. But expectations some comparisons and expectations are getting a little ridiculous. Stan Van Gundy is happy to feed the mania, as he did with Dan LeBatard on 790 the Ticket in Miami: “If I look at what the Bulls did winning 72 games and…

  5. Chris Bosh is cool with you hating the Heat

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:14 PM EST

    It’s trendy to hate the Heat, what with their ripping the hearts out of Cleveland to form the Superfriends. Trust me, plenty of people around the league have the hate, some going so far as to say the only thing that could ever get them to root for the Lakers in the finals would be…

  6. Jerry Buss likes his Lakers chances against Miami

    Aug 18, 2010, 11:17 AM EST

    It’s trendy now to say you didn’t watch “The Decision” because you had better things to do. Wash your hair, read “Ulysses” or whatever. But mature people like Shaq didn’t watch it. Well, Jerry Buss did, as he told ESPNLosAngeles.com during a Lakers charity poker event. “[It was] mixed emotions. My feeling was that he…

  7. Caron Butler is tired of being on entertaining teams, he'll take dull and a ring

    Aug 17, 2010, 12:56 PM EST

    Variations of this theme seem to play out wherever Caron Butler goes. Last season heading into the playoffs, the Dallas Mavericks looked like the team ready to test the Lakers. Dallas was the two seed, they had won 7 of 10 including five in a row. There was a quiet, veteran confidence around the team.…

  8. LeBron may have chosen Miami to recreate high school. But he has no regrets.

    Aug 17, 2010, 11:19 AM EST

    Regrets? Nope. LeBron James is chronicled in the latest issue of GQ, by author J.R. Moehringer, who had the seats closest to ringside for the circus that was the Summer of LeBron. He has a lot of insights, he tries to answer the hardest questions. Like, what would LeBron change if he had it to…

  9. Carlos Arroyo on the streets of Puerto Rico

    Aug 16, 2010, 4:16 PM EST

    Great find by SLAM, a World Basketball Festival video of Carlos Arroyo, talking about how he loves the game he grew up with. Arroyo is a good player who is about to find himself in a much bigger spotlight because of who his new teammates are. Which is good — Arroyo is a lot of…

  10. Udonis Haslem's attorney convinced he'll beat this rap

    Aug 16, 2010, 12:43 PM EST

    Udonis Haslem is maybe the most beloved member of the Heat — remember that 200 team employees showed up for a surprise party at his house. This is a guy who has been anything but a problem. Which is why his arrest for marijuana in the car was a surprise. Haslem was pulled over for…

  11. Udonis Haslem started the Heat party a bit early

    Aug 16, 2010, 9:12 AM EST

    UPDATE Aug. 16, 9:12 am: Here comes the defense, and to be blunt (pardon the pun) it’s a pretty familiar… It wasn’t his, it was the passengers, he didn’t even know it was there. You know, all the stuff you told your parents as a teenager when they thought they smelled chronic in the car…

  12. Mike Miller, MMA fighter

    Aug 14, 2010, 9:33 AM EST

    Mike Miller might not be the alpha dog in the Miami Heat locker room, but nobody’s going to be getting his face. Unless they want some ground and pound. Changing up his workout routine this summer, long-time fan Miller has been working out with MMA fighters in Arizona, according to MMAWeekly.com. “I love it, it’s…

  13. Hall of Famers not giving Heat the title. Yet.

    Aug 13, 2010, 8:39 PM EST

    The Miami Heat are going to be very good. Nobody questions that. This team is going to win a lot of game this year. Put LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team and you’re going to get that. A title… not so fast. Hall of Famers in Springfield, Mass., for the induction…

  14. Barkley isn't done taking shots at LeBron, says he has to win multiple titles

    Aug 13, 2010, 3:59 PM EST

    Yesterday Charles Barkley called LeBron James a punk for daring to do what Barkley never did and team up with other superstars to get a ring. Because I guess never reaching your goal but falling short by yourself is noble. Whatever. Barkley’s not done, though. LeBron has to win multiple titles or this is a…

  15. Dolphins' Brandon Marshall wants to play NBA basketball, is serious

    Aug 12, 2010, 6:20 PM EST

    Well, this is interesting. According to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefeter, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall plans to play NBA basketball if there is an NFL lockout next season:  Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall said Thursday that if NFL teams lock out the players next year, he will try out for the NBA. Marshall said he…

  16. Charles Barkley is on LeBron's list now, calls the decision a "punk move"

    Aug 12, 2010, 5:01 PM EST

    It’s August, but Charles Barkley is in mid-season form. He went on ESPN Radio in Dallas Thursday (via FanHouse) and aligned himself with the many people who now see the Miami Heat as the league’s villains. And he’s having none of LeBron’s “taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me” either. “I heard about…

  17. If you want to see the Heat play, it's going to cost you

    Aug 12, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    Hate them all you want — you want to see them. The Heat are in demand ‚ their gear is topping NBA sales charts (especially the LeBron No. 6 Heat jersey). And people want to see the Heat. Television ratings for their games will top what the NBA has done since Jordan suited up. If…

  18. Chris Bosh was "playing with people's emotions." And enjoying it.

    Aug 12, 2010, 12:40 PM EST

    Chris Bosh is loving the spotlight. After years of feeling ignored and underappreciated in Toronto he’s now showing up on Regis & Kelly and doing a New York media blitz. He’s big time. And he’s playing it up — and playing with your emotions, as he told the New York Daily News. “If you think…

  19. For your winter reading: "The Miami Heat's Hijacking of the NBA" by Ric Bucher

    Aug 12, 2010, 10:03 AM EST

    It’s pretty easy to picture your local Barnes & Nobel changing up the little display in front currently covered with love him/hate him Barack Obama books and putting up love them/hate them Miami Heat books. The first of what should be many will be coming from the pen, er, computer of ESPN’s Ric Bucher. According…

  20. Bosh: "We have to win a championship"

    Aug 11, 2010, 4:45 PM EST

    They may not yet realize just how hard it will be (well, one of them does), but Miami’s big three gets what the expectations they have created are: “We have to win a championship,” forward Chris Bosh said…. “I think so, because of the situation we’ve brought to ourselves,” he said. “With this group that…

  21. Winderman: Nine games the Heat could lose you didn't expect

    Aug 10, 2010, 5:49 PM EST

    Even before the NBA released its complete schedule Tuesday, there were plenty of logical assumptions that could have been made about the longshot odds of the revamped Miami Heat matching the 72-10 of the 1995-96 Bulls. There are, after all, four games apiece against the Celtics and Magic, as well as two against the Lakers,…

  22. Some season schedule notes — Miami gets no easy start, but you'll see them a lot

    Aug 10, 2010, 2:59 PM EST

    The NBA released the full schedule today, and here are a few thoughts from a first glance at it. * Teams are allowed a total of 34 national television appearances per season (ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBATV combined). The Miami Heat are already at 29 and that will jump to 34 as NBATV again is letting…

  23. Your other Lakers/Heat game: March 10 in Miami

    Aug 10, 2010, 8:31 AM EST

    The rest of the NBA schedule will come out later on Tuesday but this much we have learned (via Kevin Ding at the Orange County Register): Lakers vs. Heat round two will be March 10 in Miami, a Thursday night game covered by TNT. The first Lakers/Heat game will be Christmas Day at Staples Center.…

  24. LeBron's long time girlfriend not loving Miami but she is stepping out of the cold

    Aug 9, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    Savannah Brinson does not come off as a woman ready to go on “Basketball Wives.” She sounds like a woman comfortable with herself and her role in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. But don’t confuse that with her loving the idea of moving to Miami. “Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is…
