Miami Heat

  1. Have the Miami Heat contacted you? They've reached out to everyone else.

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    You think the human beings have yet to be cloned successfully. But after looking at what the Miami Heat have been up to in the first hours of free agency, I am convinced someone in Heat HQ has cracked the code. Otherwise there is no way they could have been in all these places. This…

  2. Stoudemire holding out for five-year deal, talking to Miami and New York

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    After a “first date” meeting with Miami Heat president Pat Riley — no word on if he got to second base — Amare Stoudemire’s agent made one thing very clear. “We’re not doing anything that’s not five years,” Walters said. That is from Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic (who rocks that beat hard, by…

  3. Teams shower their love on Chris Bosh — and don't be afraid to picture him as a Rocket

    Jul 1, 2010, 8:37 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh may be the key to the whole free agent summer — wherever he lands, he is going to be paired with another star. And that team is going to be instantly a contender. A lot of guys are going to change jerseys this summer, but he is the one who will bring winning…

  4. Winderman: The negative campaigning to get LeBron may backfire

    Jun 30, 2010, 5:27 PM EDT

    This was supposed to be a relatively simple process when it came to recruiting LeBron James: Sell your wares and build fears about how the Cavaliers simply have not done enough for James for him to remain in Cleveland. That was the notion back at the start of the season, when the Cavaliers were the…

  5. Raptors' preference for a Chris Bosh sign-and-trade likely means more suitors than ever and a better chance for a Miami supergroup

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    Why should the teams with cap space get to have all the fun? Even if the Cavs don’t want any part of a sign-and-trade for LeBron and Dwyane Wade seems locked into Miami, the Raptors not only appear open to the idea of signing-and-trading Chris Bosh, but Bryan Colangelo actually prefers it. From Marc J.…

  6. LeBron gets to choose his destiny as free agency begins

    Jun 30, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Living in a free country has many advantages. You get to freely select where you live, who you marry, what you do with your time, where you work, what you do, what you say, and how you feel. But along with those freedoms is a cost. It’s the money you need to accomplish what you…

  7. Heat take another step toward Superteam, waive James Jones

    Jun 29, 2010, 3:31 PM EDT

    The dream is alive in Miami. Well, unless you’re James Jones. In their attempt to strip the team down to the studs and rebuild, the Miami Heat bought out the final two years of Jones’ deal, Ira Winderman reports. They had to pay him $1.86 million, but they are now out of his $4.65 million.…

  8. The terrifying possibility of a LeBron-Wade-Bosh triumvirate in Miami inches closer to becoming a reality

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:12 am: The Miami Herald and other sources are reporting that this summit did not happen in Miami. Turns out Wade spent last weekend in his hometown of Chicago. Although ESPN’s sources say they were all together in Miami. Whatever. See, there is this fancy new technology called the telephone where the three of…

  9. Your latest LeBron rumor: He and Bosh to Miami with Wade. It doesn't work, yet…

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: ESPN salary cap guru Larry Coon blew this idea of Wade/Bosh/LeBron out of the water tonight. Here were his comments on twitter: If they re-sign Wade, waive Jones & renounce all other FAs, they will have $27,596,027 cap room. Bron/Bosh are $16,568,908 each. So one or both of them would have to…

  10. Chris Bosh says he is serious about the Heat, too

    Jun 28, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh is not just LeBron James’ lap dog, going wherever he goes and doing whatever he says. No sir. Chris Bosh is his own man. And would go to Miami to be with Dwyane Wade to prove it, so he tells the Miami Herald. “Miami is in top contention,” Bosh said during a quiet…

  11. Which teams are most impacted by LeBron James not touring for free agency?

    Jun 26, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    We told you earlier that LeBron would not be going on a worldwide tour of his free agent destinations as had been previously reported. But the question now is, which teams are most impacted by that decision? Let’s take a look at the candidates and rank the impact this has on their chances on a…

  12. Report: Jiggaman Jay-Z, Prokhorov get first crack at LeBron James

    Jun 26, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Sure, the Finals were fun, in a sort of “two-teams-shooting-35%-from-the-floor” sort of way. But now the real entertainment begins. Watching professional franchises, several steeped in rich history and other heralded by some of the most powerful men in the world, crawl and beg before a 25-year-old small forward from Akron, Ohio.  First up? H.O.V.A.  Yahoo!…

  13. Pat Riley says he's not shopping Michael Beasley, nobody believes him

    Jun 25, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    Sometimes rumors just seem true. Tell me Ke$ha is crazy enough to give bags of dog s%$# to people, and I tend to believe it. Because she may be actually crazier than most of the women I’ve dated. And that’s saying something. Trust me. Tell me that the Heat are shopping Michael Beasley around and…

  14. Chris Bosh says he is waiting on LeBron. Aren't we all?

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    As Mick Jagger said: Chris Bosh is not waiting on a lady, he’s just waiting on LeBron. (Well, he said something like that, it was a long time ago and I was pretty stoned last time I heard that song.) Chris Bosh admitted on ESPN radio this morning what we all knew already: LeBron eats…

  15. NBA Draft: Thunder score the No. 18 pick and Daequan Cook for the No. 32

    Jun 23, 2010, 6:31 PM EDT

    So far, the pre-draft trades have turned out pretty well for all parties involved. Y’know, unless the Zach Randolph-Al Jefferson swap goes down and forces all of the remaining Wolves fans to live underground while the franchise is burned to the ground. Oklahoma City and Miami will make a minor swap that goes down as…

  16. Where is Ray Allen shooting next year?

    Jun 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Ray Allen can still shoot the rock. Remember Game 2 of the NBA finals? A record 8 three pointers? That stroke is still pure. But the man can no longer really carry a team for long. He is a piece of the puzzle, a sharp-shooting role player on a contender now. That has value for…

  17. Michael Beasley wishes he'd stayed in school

    Jun 20, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT

    Jacob Pullen is a talented wing from Kansas State, but not a player rocketing up draft boards. As such, he elected to spend another year in school and wait to see if the future with a senior season would be what’s best for him. What’s interesting is who helped lead him to that decision.  Michael…

  18. When does free agent mania cross the line? Right about at Miami-Wade County.

    Jun 16, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Evidently serious issues like murder, drug trafficking and grand theft are not big problems in Miami-Dade County — you get that when Horatio Caine is taking off those sunglasses. That frees up the Miami-Dade County Commissioners to have time to do other important work — like unanimously voting for the area to be known as…

  19. Ray Allen interested in Miami this summer?

    Jun 13, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers wants Ray Allen back in the green this summer. But after the Celtics shopped the soon-to-be 35 year old this year, there are going to be questions about where he’ll wind up. Saturday, the New York Daily News filed their answer to that question to a certain degree. Reports on the paper’s website…

  20. Heat throw party to show Udonis Haslem they want him back, too

    Jun 9, 2010, 7:25 PM EDT

    Priority one for the Miami Heat this summer is to bring Dwyane Wade back. The Heat aren’t being subtle about that, either. But they have another free agent they want back, too — Udonis Haslem. To show him a little love, they threw a surprise 30th birthday party for him — bringing over 200 people…

  21. Rumor: Miami Heat free agent target order: Bosh, Stoudemire, then Boozer

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:53 AM EDT

    This is probably what everybody surmised, but now we have a little confirmation. According to a report in the Miami Herald, the free agent the Miami Heat are targeting first is Chris Bosh, who will certainly demand the max salary. His versatile inside game and ability to run the floor should be a good fit…

  22. Miami Heat's Spoelstra says he's not worried about Pat Riley the coach

    Jun 5, 2010, 3:41 PM EDT

    He’s done it before. Pat Riley may have a front office job but he would rather be sitting on the bench, winning titles. He threw aside a very good coach to do it before, when Dwyane Wade and Shaq looked like they could win a title. If the Heat can land another big star —…

  23. Oh, how the stock of Michael Beasley has fallen

    Jun 3, 2010, 8:44 AM EDT

    Remember the Michael Beasley at Kansas State? He killed people from the post. He was an amazing finisher at the rim, with either hand. He could face up and blow by anyone. He worked hard off the ball. He was so fluid. He had 13 30 point, 10 rebound games. He looked like a man…

  24. Bulls GM Forman to Wade: We are a very loyal organization

    May 28, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    In a recent interview, Dwyane Wade shot down the idea of returning to his home town to play for the Bulls, questioning the loyalty of the organization that did not keep Michael Jordan or Scottie Pippen around. Even though those two chose to distance themselves from the Bulls. Whatever. Bulls General Manager Gus Forman stepped…

  25. Winderman: Real men do play zone. Because it works.

    May 26, 2010, 12:35 PM EDT

    Real men, of course, don’t play zone. It is why the Suns’ gimmickry was derided by the Lakers after Game 4 as inconsequential to why the Western Conference finals are now tied 2-2. It is why Carmelo Anthony, Jonny Flynn and now Wes Johnson enter the NBA seemingly needed to be reprogrammed from Jim Boeheim’s…
