Somewhat lost in the shuffle of teams hoping to land Carmelo Anthony in free agency this summer, and thankfully ignored in favor of the Heat’s attempts to 3-peat, are the impending player options Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh have this summer in Miami. But during a radio appearance on the Dan Le Batard Show in Miami Tuesday morning, Bosh answered “true” when asked if he and James were staying in South Beach. Read More »

The Heat again faltered in the fourth on Monday night, getting outscored by the Blazers 30-21. But a last second dash by LeBron James for the go-ahead layup, and Chris Bosh‘s block of Damian Lillard‘s seemingly open layup, preserved a much-needed 93-91 Heat win. Read More »

Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid, Dante Exum and Julius Randle highlight a cast of talented youngsters. Assuming some of these NBA hopefuls reach their ceilings, we could be looking back at this draft class as one of the best ever. Read More »

For only a half season, the NBA’s best players have put together some historic performances.

Already we have witnessed three 50-point games this year. We only witnessed two all of last year–Stephen Curry scoring 54 in the Garden and Carmelo Anthony scoring an incredibly difficult 50 in Miami.
