  1. Heat return Mario Chalmers, James Jones, and Juwan Howard for another go-around

    Dec 9, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    Although the Miami Heat’s failure to win the NBA title made them a frequent punchline, let’s not soon forget just how quickly the Heat were able to rise to the top of the league. Miami is an altogether incredible team, and though they squandered an opportunity in the NBA Finals, they likely need only to…

  2. Dwyane Wade sticks up for LeBron, Bosh

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Dwyane Wade will take on your villain role as a member of the Miami Heat. Bring it on. But in the process he will stick up for his teammates. In an interview with Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, Wade defended LeBron James’ comments in an ESPN interview where LeBron said he did not want…

  3. Goodbye Denver, Miami among suitors lined up for Nene

    Nov 29, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Nene nuggets

    Nene is the biggest and best free agent on the market. Unless your team doesn’t need a legit 7-foot big man who plays smart, can defend the paint, rebound well, plus has a deft offensive touch around the rim and from the midrange. Denver can use one of those but after nine years in the…

  4. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  6. Shaq says he got in Pat Riley’s face in Miami, too

    Oct 31, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT

    shaq-riley

    Excerpts from Shaquille O’Neal’s new book hit the Web and of course our eyes are drawn to the Hatfields and McCoys that is he and Kobe Bryant with the Lakers. A legendary feud. But that’s not all that is there in the excerpts Deadspin published. There is also this description of his confrontation with then…

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Udonis Haslem‘s twitter account is less than 24 years old, but he’s already using it to post major news and his opinions about the lockout: How ironic. Just got cleared by doctors for full workouts. Hardwood here I come. LET US PLAY #STANDUNITED A foot injury caused Haslem to miss most of the regular season and…

  8. Udonis Haslem: Super happy optimistic guy…?

    Sep 11, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Udonis Haslem is not a pleasant dude to talk to. I’m sure to friends and family he’s a right cuddly teddy bear. But to media, his reaction to most everything falls between dull boredom and outright disgust. It’s like if Oscar the Grouch could kill you. Pretty much that. But apparently he’s got a pretty…

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Something forgotten when Udonis Haslem came back to help lead the Heat’s surge past the Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals is that Haslem wasn’t anywhere near healthy. He was in a race against time trying to recover from his foot injury, and had had significant surgery a few months before. Haslem was careful with…

  10. No NBA fines, suspensions from Game 6 announced

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Interesting note from Henry Abbott at TrueHoop — the NBA has yet to announce if there will be suspensions at the start of next season for the mini-altercation between Udonis Haslem and DeShawn Stevenson during Game 6. On one level I hope there are not any suspensions. It was a minor thing, some pushing and…

  11. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

    Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki (C) drives through Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem (L) and Chris Bosh (R) during Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    At the end of Game 2 it was Chris Bosh on Dirk Nowitzki, at the end of Game 3 it was Udonis Haslem. The different outcomes are not all that simple, but it’s a big difference to start with. Good on Ekpe Udoh, who has returned to Oklahoma to work with victims of recent tornadoes.…

    Jun 6, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    Miami has gotten in trouble this series when they have gone to LeBron James or Dwyane Wade in isolation. When it became hero ball as they tried to knock down the long jumper or drove headlong into the teeth of the defense. And in the biggest moment of the series you wondered if they may…

  14. NBA Finals: Miami balances star power with rebounding grit in Game 1 win

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:26 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    All that it’s taken for the Miami Heat to win games in this year’s playoffs is the ability to maintain reasonable margins. They go on runs, they shut down their opponents’ offensive options, and they stretch their legs with displays of supreme athleticism, but the body of the single-game narrative — the initial 43 or…

  15. NBA Finals: Heat, Mavericks five keys to victory

    May 27, 2011, 6:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    Miami always seemed like they had a chance if they just came together — and they did at the right time. Dallas has been a surprise. We all knew they were good but we had been conditioned to expect them to fall flat in the playoffs. Instead Tyson Chandler gave them defensive toughness and Dirk…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Back in sweet home Chicago can Bulls extend series?

    May 26, 2011, 1:02 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In one key way, the Eastern Conference Finals have been a lot like the Western Conference Finals — it has been about the fourth quarter. Miami has turned up the defensive pressure late and the Bulls have wilted in the final stanza. In the fourth quarter of the last three games the Bulls have shot…

  17. Dallas gets to sit back and relax… but don’t expect rust

    May 26, 2011, 2:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dallas now has some time to put its feet up and relax after polishing off the Thunder 100-96 in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. They’ve got a wait ahead of them. At least until next Tuesday (if Miami wins on Thursday night), maybe until June 2 (if Chicago wins). Either way, nearly a…

  18. NBA Playoffs: Heat complement their star power with depth, take Game 4

    May 25, 2011, 1:39 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Chicago Bulls finished with a better regular-season record than the star-studded Miami Heat for two reasons: superior depth and better play in close games. On Tuesday night, the Heat flipped the script on the Bulls, and took a commanding 3-1 series lead thanks to superior depth and late-game execution. All season long, the Bulls…

  19. NBA Playoffs Heat vs. Bulls Game 3: Advantage, home-court and otherwise

    May 22, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson

    How many times do you read the word “advantage” in sports? It’s used so frequently even in the face of the obviousness of what it implies. After all, what makes teams “bad” so often is a lack of advantage, or a lack of willingness to exploit that advantage. Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks is…

  20. Heat’s Haslem sits out practice Friday just as precaution

    May 20, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Udonis Haslem, the man off the bench that helped change the Heat’s fortunes in Game 2 and even the series, sat out practice Friday because of his surgically repaired foot. Relax Heat fans, it’s just precautionary. Deep breathes. Haslem stayed out of running drills, according to a tweet from our man Ira Winderman with the…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Udonis Haslem is back. Miami just got better.

    May 19, 2011, 12:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    When the Heat roster was in upheaval this summer, clearing out cap space to chase a three-man dream team, Udonis Haslem was a free agent. A free agent drawing interest from around the league because every team could use a forward who will do the dirty work and can bury the midrange jumper. To show…

  22. NBA Playoffs: Heat win war of attrition, get split in Chicago

    May 19, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The final box score makes it look like the Heat evened up the Eastern Conference finals with relative ease. Miami won by a final score of 85-75, the Bulls shot only 34 percent from the floor, and Derrick Rose shot 7-for-23 from the floor while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to score 53 points. In…

  23. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  24. NBA Playoffs: Haslem returns to Heat for Game 4

    May 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    UPDATE 7:35 PM: Udonis Haslem not only was in uniform but got time starting in the second quarter for the Heat. He picked up two quick fouls, plus a technical foul for arguing the calls (the second was iffy). So, welcome back. 6:02 pm: The Miami Heat are up 2-1 on the Boston Celtics, but…

  25. No Shaq for Celtics, no Udonis Haslem for Heat in Game 2

    May 3, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Shaquille O’Neal will not be playing in Game 2 against the Heat Tuesday Night. I know. Stunning. The big man himself limped into shootaround Tuesday and ruled himself out, according to A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England. But he almost certainly will play in Game 3,…
