The Post-LeBron Zombie Apocalypse Will Have to Wait

For those expecting the Miami Heat’s 2014-2015 basketball season to devolve into a post-apocalyptic wasteland…not so fast. To be sure, any team that loses its best player is going to take a few...

Heat Check: Chronicles of a Fanatic


Dwyane Wade and his Miami Heat have undergone quite a makeover to get to the 2011 NBA Finals. One could argue that no one has had to grow more individually than Wade has to make this thing work....

Handicapping Divisions around the Association: Pacific Division


This division is the weakest in the Association. The division-leading Lakers are the only team currently in the Playoffs. The second place Suns are 10 games back and are currently in 9th place in...

Handicapping Divisions around the Association: Southwest Division

Heat Rewards: Sheer Genius or Fool’s Gold?


The Heat have won 20 of their last 21 games—several in impressive fashion. That recent success can be tracked back to the implementation of “Heat Rewards.” Can that success continue under this system?

Christmas Wish List for the Miami Heat


Christmas Day is fast approaching, and I thought it would be a good thing for me to fill out my own personal wish list for my favorite team. I will make my wishes in five categories. If I get my...

From Zo and Spo going to Haiti to this. I'm proud to be a fan of a team that does this much good with the financial resources they've been blessed with.

Dwyane Wade Preparing 'Wish List' for Riley and Arison?


I don't know how much stock I put in the Detroit Free Press's coverage of a Miami sports figure, but it is news, so hey. Apparently, now that several of D-Wade's legal issues are behind him, he's going to be providing the Miami Heat organization with a "wish list" of players he would like them to attempt to sign beginning July 1. Questions: Do you believe said list will be compiled and delivered? Who do you think will be on Wade's 'list'? Do you think getting rid of Michael Beasley will be in D-Wade's wishes?

More Musings on Summer Acquisitions

July 1, 2010, can’t get here fast enough for most Heat fans. We have the better part of two months to wonder about who may be coming to don the black, red, and white. One thing I took away from...

Did I see this coming? No, I didn't, but I don't get surprised by much anymore. That's entirely up...


Did I see this coming? No, I didn't, but I don't get surprised by much anymore. That's entirely up to him [Riley]. I just feel bad for Erik.'' Stan Van Gundy, Head Coach of the Orlando Magic on the prospect of Pat Riley returning to the sidelines to coach the Miami Heat.
