The shooting guard position is a thing of beauty. Michael Jordan came into the league and dominated his spot and the NBA like no other player has ever done.

The bruising Heat-Pacers war last night featured a number of physical plays. Perhaps the most amusing for viewers featured Dwyane Wade and Lance Stephenson.

Former Miami team member, and two-time champion, Mike Miller was back in Miami Friday night with the Grizzlies in town. The Heat, who had to let him go for luxury tax reasons before the season, did it right, with Erik Spoelstra handing him his 2013 NBA Championship ring before the game started and a commemorative video telling Miller to “keep letting it fly.” Read More »
