Miami’s star wings carry Heat to Game 2 win over Pacers
May 20, 2014, 9:51 AM EST
The Pacers haven’t exactly been the most consistent team in the playoffs. To put it kindly.

“We’re talking about two teams that have grown to not really like each other over the last couple years,” Udonis Haslem said.

LeBron remixes Jay-Z track
Mar 26, 2014, 11:28 PM EST
The Pacers and the Heat haven’t been playing anywhere near their best basketball as of late, and whether that’s a product of late-season malaise or simply a combination of fatigue and attrition remains to be seen. Their matchup on Wednesday was largely more of the same, before the fourth quarter began and the competitive fire…

LeBron was unusually irritable after Heat’s seventh loss in last 11 games. Time to get the stars some rest?

BOSTON – Dwyane Wade had barely crossed halfcourt when Udonis Haslem streaked past him and all the way behind the defense. Wade tossed the ball toward the rim, and Haslem grabbed it and dunked, hanging on the rim an extra beat. The Celtics called timeout, on their way to a 14-point deficit midway through the…

Patrick Beverley gained some national attention when his aggressive play resulted in an injury to the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first round of last year’s playoffs. There was nothing wrong with Beverley’s play, but it branded him as an agitator of sorts. He’s since lived up to that label, being one of the more…

It remains to be seen to a certain extent, but Caron Butler appears to be the one player made available during the NBA’s unofficial buyout season that has a true chance of impacting his new team’s playoff chances. That team is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who apparently had more to offer in their sales pitch…

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…

That is Chris Bosh singing Tom Jones’ “It’s not unusual” while breaking out the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Carlton Dance. That is why Chris Bosh is awesome (that and he’s a better basketball player than most of you seem to give him credit for, but that’s another post for another day). It’s may favorite thing…

It’s been a running theme over the past few seasons in Miami, where the Heat veterans — namely LeBron James and Dwyane Wade — haven’t been at all shy about dressing down Mario Chalmers on the court following an in-game mistake. Two straight championships later, things apparently haven’t changed all that much. In the third…

No more Shane Battier jumping center for the Miami Heat. After not traveling with the Heat to Toronto so he could be there for the birth of his daughter — which is the only right decision to make — Chris Bosh is back with the Heat to take on the Clippers Thursday night. That’s 19.8…

You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship. They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan. The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

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…
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
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…

At age 21, Greg Oden was the kind of big man NBA teams are clamoring four now — a beast on the boards and protecting the rim who also could get you a fair amount of points. At age 25, he has barely set foot on the court since then. He’s had three microfacture and…

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…
