Miami Heat – Chris Bosh Decides It’s Better to Stay

Posted on 12 Jul, 2014, by in NBA

Not everyone is leaving the Miami Heat. Chris Bosh for example, despite a very serious offer from the Houston Rockets, decided to take more years and more money by staying with the team he won two NBA championships with, which probably opens the door and makes the Dwyane Wade prospect of signing a greater possibility.

Miami Heat – LeBron James Cramping Up Isn’t the Only Problem

Posted on 6 Jun, 2014, by in NBA

Everything fell apart the moment LeBron James started cramping up. Maybe it was the rising temperature in the arena that caused all of this; maybe it was simply fatigue or bad luck. These thing happen. But the Miami Heat were dominating, leading, en route to stealing home court advantage. And then everything fell apart. More

NBA Finals – Heat vs Spurs, a Long Awaited Rematch

Posted on 1 Jun, 2014, by in NBA

If you believe Tim Duncan, the San Antonio Spurs really wanted a rematch in this year’s NBA finals. The Miami Heat? I’m not so sure this was the rival they were dreaming of, because of history and simply because the other option, the Oklahoma City Thunder, are a much better matchup for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to handle.

NBA Playoffs – Miami Heat Defense is About Speed & Length, Not Size

Posted on 28 May, 2014, by in NBA

It’s pretty much true for most teams in the NBA, but especially when it comes to the Miami Heat: When they get their way defensively, everything opens up for them on offense. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have open floor opportunities to take advantage of and open three-point shots are created. The Heat’s defense works on speed and length instead of size, which is something they willingly give up to the Indiana Pacers. More

Miami Heat – Plenty to be Worried About

Posted on 13 Mar, 2014, by in NBA

Losing four games out of five, the problems stopping the Miami Heat from reaching the top of the standings in the Eastern conference are more than just complacency and taking it easy on opponents. LeBron James has rough nights and isn’t getting enough help from his bench and role players, or maybe not doing enough himself to try and make them work. More

Miami Heat – LeBron James Building a Nice Little Winning Streak

Posted on 30 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

After beating the Toronto Raptors 90-83, the Miami Heat have now won nine consecutive games, all while LeBron James is putting on one of the more impressive seasons in terms of efficiency and shooting accuracy to go along with what we’ve come to expect of him, which is more or less greatness, and being the best player in the NBA.

Miami Heat – LeBron James Isn’t Slowing Down

Posted on 17 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

It was going to take something bigger and better than the Charlotte Bobcats to take LeBron James out of the impressive scoring run he’s currently going on, scoring 30 points to lead the Miami Heat to a 97-81 win, winning for a third consecutive time and a sixth in their last seven games. More

Miami Heat – Dwyane Wade Epitomizes Champions Arrogance

Posted on 10 Nov, 2013, by in NBA

The word coasting is the perfect example of this season so far for the Miami Heat, who are taking the weak opponents a little bit less seriously than they should, easily noticed by their very weak defense, LeBron James not trying to do too much on offense and Dwyane Wade making a decision to make a mockery of his free throw, costing his team the game. More

NBA Rumors – Miami Heat Need Dwyane Wade to Accept a Smaller Role

Posted on 14 Aug, 2013, by in NBA

Last season, Dwyane Wade and his knee problems almost cost the Miami Heat the NBA title. If a three-peat is to be achieved, or even another NBA finals appearance, something has to be done to keep Wade a bit fresher heading into the crucial stages of the season. More

Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Dallas Mavericks & San Antonio Spurs Only Teams With the Same Head Coach For More Than Three Seasons

Posted on 24 Jun, 2013, by in NBA

The NBA isn’t exactly a league that preaches for coaching stability. In fact, only four teams: The Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs have a head coach that’s been at the job for more than three seasons, as Erik Spoelstra, Scott Brooks and Rick Carlisle have been at the job since the 2008-2009 season, while Gregg Popovich has been with the Spurs since the 1996-1997 season.
