  1. LeBron James’ 61-point game re-ignites MVP race with Kevin Durant

    Mar 4, 2014, 12:02 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    LeBron James could barely muster the strength to lift his head. He walked upcourt with his eyes to the ground, looked up to wave a dribbling Mario Chalmers ahead, and then dropped his eyes back to the court. The Miami Heat called timeout, and LeBron removed his facemask while dragging himself toward the bench. Spent…

  2. Michael Beasley banks in the half-court shot to beat first quarter buzzer (VIDEO)

    Many times when a player makes a shot from half court or beyond, it’s essentially more luck than skill that’s responsible. Don’t get me wrong, these guys have spent their whole lives in the gym and are elite at what they do, but still, connecting on shots from 47 feet out or more is low-percentage,…

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  4. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

    Tuesday night we are getting an Eastern Conference Finals preview — Indiana vs. Miami.

  6. Michael Beasley finding a role, groove in Miami

    Dec 2, 2013, 3:49 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    It is different than 2008 — Michael Beasley didn’t walk into the Heat locker room with the expectations he could be a player to carry the franchise. In 2013 they just needed a solid role player. They are getting that — Beasley has found his groove. In his last 10 games he has averaged 18.1…

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  8. Report: Lamar Odom had lengthy meeting with Doc Rivers, Clippers

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom has had a troublesome last few months, reportedly being involved with heavy drug use and being arrested on DUI charges. But if all of that is truly in Odom’s rearview mirror, then he may have a chance at a roster spot with the team he played for last season. Doc Rivers and other…

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while wearing your $550 sweatpants…. Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. The big German with the soft touch reached an NBA milestone Tuesday — he passed Jerry West to move into 16th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Appropriately he did it with a couple consecutive…

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EST

    Michael Beasley; Jonas Valanciunas

    The Heat are bringing Michael Beasley along extremely slowly in hopes that their veteran leadership and championship environment can break him of his apathetic basketball habits on the court, and his historically poor decisions off of it. Beasley saw his first minutes of action this season in the Heat’s fourth game, a win over the…

  12. Michael Beasley, Roger Mason Jr. make Heat’s 15-man roster

    Oct 26, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The Heat waived Eric Griffin and Justin Hamilton on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster to the league maximum of 15 players in advance of opening night against the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday. That means that veterans Michael Beasley and Roger Mason Jr. remain with the team for now, which was somewhat expected. But it’s worth…

  13. LeBron sits out Heat’s preseason game vs. Spurs

    Oct 19, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    LeBron James

    The last time the Heat and the Spurs played in Miami, it was Game 7 of the NBA Finals last June, in a contest that meant the world to each respective franchise. When they met again for the first time since then in a preseason contest in Miami on Saturday, the game meant absolutely nothing.…

    Oct 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Eric Bledsoe

    Last season: Believe it or not, the Suns actually had playoff aspirations when the regular season began. The front office believed that Michael Beasley would be different in Phoenix than he had been anywhere else, and mandated that he be given a chance to be a difference-maker in the lineup. Once it became clear that…

  15. Heat say Beasley’s injury wasn’t caused by the punches he landed to his own head

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley was caught on video punching himself in the head a couple of times after a missed shot during the Heat’s preseason win over the Pistons on Thursday, and he received treatment from team trainers following the game to reduce swelling above his eye. Putting two and two together, it was originally believed that…

  16. Report: Michael Beasley punched self after travel call, needed treatment

    Michael Beasley

    Above you see the video evidence that Michael Beasley did indeed punch himself in the head after getting called for traveling in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Pistons (thanks to Ben at The Point Forward for finding that). We’ll also say it doesn’t look like much — more of a forehead slap “D’oh” than…

  17. Dwyane Wade, Michael Beasley both sit for Heat Monday

    Oct 7, 2013, 7:40 PM EST

    Michael Beasley

    After shootaround on Monday, LeBron James was asked who had stood out so far with their play at camp and without hesitation he said Dwyane Wade. He said Wade was turning back the clock. Which is nice in October but actually needed in May. Wade is going to get some rest along the way to…

  18. Michael Beasley’s latest plan: ‘I’m not going to be looking at not making mistakes or trying not to mess up’

    Oct 2, 2013, 9:15 AM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The Michael Beasley experiment is officially underway in Miami, after the Suns negotiated a buyout of his contract following a disappointing first season in Phoenix that came along with it some off-the-court legal troubles that helped make the franchise’s decision to part ways with the troubled forward a little bit easier. Beasley is being given…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

    adidas/BRIAN KERSEY

    CHICAGO – The Bulls are expected by many to be among the top teams in the Eastern Conference when factoring in the return of Derrick Rose. But while teams like Brooklyn, New York, and Indiana added talent through trades or free agency, Chicago lost a couple of guys who helped the team make its playoff…

    heat beasley

    After Michael Beasley had problems both on and off the court during a tumultuous first year with the Phoenix Suns, the team decided to further its fresh start under a new GM and new head coach by negotiating a buyout of his contract, which made Beasley an unrestricted free agent. Despite his well-chronicled history of…

  24. Report: Miami Heat considering signing Michael Beasley

    Sep 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    heat beasley

    There’s no way to put this mildly: The Michael Beasley free agent signing by the Phoenix Suns last summer was a disastrous one for the franchise. It led to the firing of head coach Alvin Gentry midway through last season, and when things had completely fallen apart by year’s end, it resulted in the firing…

  25. Lakers reportedly have interest in a young forward… Xavier Henry

    Sep 4, 2013, 3:52 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Driving in Los Angeles today I heard the broadcasters on the Lakers flagship station talking themselves into Michael Beasley. They gave it a lot of caveats — if he would take the league minimum (he’s going to have to) and if he plays within the system (he hasn’t anywhere else, don’t think this will be…
