I'm a recovering newspaper reporter, now a freelance writer and blogger. I graduated from Wellington High School near West Palm Beach, then the University of Central Florida. My wife, two kids and I live on three acres out in the Florida countryside.

Game 9: Washington Wizards at Miami Heat

Our middling Heat face its last-place division rival tonight, hosting the 1-5 Washington Wizards. Gilbert Arenas is hurt, Brenden Haywood is hurt, and DeShawn Stevenson can't feel his face, though...

Shawn Marion Feeling Better

The Herald reports that Shawn Marion may return to the court Friday against the Wizards, and will be losing the mask on Sunday.

Report: Heat Interested in Knicks' Eddy Curry

Why Miami should trade for Knicks center Eddy Curry.

The Limitations of the Miami Heat

The Miami Heat has gotten by with a 6-8 center and a rookie point guard. Unfortunately, getting by is the best this group can hope for.

Udonis Haslem: All-Star Write-In Candidate

Heat center Udonis Haslem was left off the NBA All-Star ballot. That thing's too big of a joke to be angry about. Eddy Curry hasn't played yet!

Portland Trail Blazers 104, Miami Heat 96

I hate to fall on cliches, but here goes: it is what it is. Portland was bigger, more talented, and deeper than the Heat. Dwyane Wade was the best player on the court, winning the battle of stars...

'Excited' Oden, 'Worried' Roy Will Play Against Miami

+

To my mind, you probably shouldn't play a superstar in November if he's at all "worried" about his health. But I'm glad we get to see the Blazers at or close to full strength.

Game 8: Portland Trail Blazers at Miami Heat

The second national TV game of the Heat's season arrives tonight, as Miami hosts Portland in an 8 p.m. ESPN broadcast. It's hard to get a good sense of this game without knowing who will be...

Marion Might Return Tonight Vs. Blazers

Like Portland's Greg Oden, Shawn Marion might make his return from injury tonight for the ESPN broadcast.

Oden Might Play Tonight vs. Heat

Portland center Greg Oden might make his return tonight at Miami. I, for one, would love to see him play well in a Blazers loss.

Miami Heat 99, New Jersey Nets 94

That's a milestone game right there. Wins like this can serve as bonding moments for teams, especially newly-assembled ones like our Heat. This team needs the shared experience of gritty, unlikely...

Shawn Marion Out Tonight

+

Shawn Marion's out tonight with a groin injury. He apparently wanted to play, but the Heat told him to grab some bench. Not that this is what the Heat had in mind, but I'm looking forward to seeing the first unit without him.

Game 7: New Jersey Nets at Miami Heat

Miami seeks to stay undefeated at home against the 2-3 Nets, conveniently missing emerging star Devin Harris at the point. Unfortunately, Keyon Dooling is capable of getting pretty damn hot when...

Sam Smith Floats a Concocted Wade-to-Bulls Theory

+

Fiction can be fun, as Ace Ventura once said. Smith has the Bulls sending Kirk Hinrich and Andres Nocioni and maybe Joakim Noah for Shawn Marion, freeing up the space for Chicago to swipe Wade in 2010. The basis: Smith doesn't see Mario Chalmers as the Heat's answer at point guard; Kirk Hinrich maybe is because he was invited to Team USA camp, Dwyane Wade has expressed admiration for Derrick Rose's game, and Heat target Chris Bosh doesn't "want to be a Pippen." My counter arguments: yes he is; no he's not; everyone admires Derrick Rose's game; and Bosh is a Pippen, and is smart enough to know it.

New Orleans Hornets 100, Miami Heat 89

Not much to complain about this one. Miami played reasonably well on the second night of a road back-to-back, coming off an impressive win over a likely contender, and facing a very, very good team...

Game 6: Miami Heat @ New Orleans Hornets

The Heat goes for a third straight win over a projected postseason team as it faces an absolutely stacked Hornets team to close out a quick and dirty mini-road trip of Western Conference powers. N...

Miami Heat 99, San Antonio Spurs 83

A night of firsts for the 2008-09 Heat: its first road win, its first winning streak, its first national TV game. That this team responded to the big stage and stiff challenge is a massive...

Heat at Spurs: Miami Ready for Prime Time?

If Miami's going to get its first road win this weekend, it's going to have to earn it. A brief but grueling two-day road trip begins tonight in San Antonio with an 8 p.m. ESPN game against the...

Heat 106, Sixers 83: That's the Good Stuff

Sixers at Heat: Big Trouble

Miami's vertically-challenged frontcourt gets its tallest test of the young season tonight as it hosts Philadelphia. You've got your Samuel Dalembert, a wiry 6-11 leaper. You've got your Elton...

Stephon Marbury to Miami Rumor Reborn

I guess this was unavoidable with Steph chilling on the Knicks' inactive list. I don't care how many games like Saturday's we have, signing Marbury won't help.

Marion Has Broken Nose, Will Play With an Awesome Mask

What with the semi-mohawk and now the protective face mask, Shawn Marion's making a run at the NBA's oddest-looking player.

Bobcats 100, Heat 87: Meh

There is a lot to be worried about after watching Miami's abysmal effort against Charlotte on Saturday night, but I've narrowed it down to three major points. Dwyane Wade's foul trouble. This is...

Heat at Bobcats: First Streak of the Season?

I haven't had a chance to watch the game on the DVR yet after spending last night taking the kids trick-or-treating. It seems like it's something I'll enjoy watching, though. Here's the Herald's B...

Michael Beasley: What a Way to Make a Living

1

Our overburdened clock-punching rookie laments his rigorous training schedule: "I mean," Beasley said, "I wake up (at) 7:30. I get to the gym about 7:45, 8. I won't leave until about 4 o'clock, sometimes 5 o'clock. He does eat up a lot of my time." Beasley's planet seems like a nice place to live sometimes.

Kings at Heat: The Home Opener

There's no such thing as a must-win in October, so I'll just say a loss here would be painful. Sacramento is not a good team, and it is without starting center Brad Miller. But the Kings do have...

Knicks 120, Heat 115: The Wrap-Up
