LeBron James Calls Recent Comments By Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade “Surprising”

Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

The Miami Heat are moving on from LeBron James. Nothing to come out of South Beach in the immediate wake of James’ departure or in the months since have refuted his impact on the organization the past four seasons, or outright chastised him for returning home to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But a small war of words has been simmering nonetheless, and grew hotter this week when Chris Bosh said that he hasn’t talked to LeBron since The King’s decision and “doesn’t have much time” for players not on his team.

Report: Cavaliers, Heat Avoiding Social Engagements In Brazil

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

A common critique of the modern NBA is that it lacks the competitive spirit – hatred is a better word – of the 1980s and 1990s. Players are friends first and opponents second, detractors say. That sentiment passes muster; growing up playing AAU basketball and the presence of social media keep these guys far closer socially than their predecessors. We don’t think that’s a bad thing, but can understand those that enjoy an air of outright vitriol in a basketball game. Might the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat be headed that way? It’s doubtful, but there are signs pointing the game’s newest rivalry is heading that direction. Read More »

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

Skolnick of Bleacher Report how “last year wasn’t fun,” and how amazed Wade is the Heat even made the Finals in 2014. Read More »

Kevin Love, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving

Now that Kevin Love has joined forces with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland, NBA fans can rest easy that this season will not pass by (in fact, the real worry might be how many minutes can pass by) without hearing the words “The Big Three.” Read More »

Dwyane Wade’s New Shoe Is Inspired By Showtime’s “Dexter”

Way Of Wade 3

Who wouldn’t want to wear basketball shoes spattered in blood? That’s evidently what Dwyane Wade and Chinese sports apparel giant Li-Ning were thinking when designing the Miami Heat star’s latest sneaker, which features red splotches on the forefoot as a reference to Showtime’s hit series “Dexter.” Read More »

Report: Miami Heat Won’t Abandon Small-Ball

Erik Spoelstra

LeBron James was the Miami Heat’s identity over the past four seasons. The inverted offense and hyper-aggressive defense that became the team’s calling-card were certainly bigger than one player, but would still not have been implemented without the singular force Erik Spoelstra frequently called “1-through-5.” It made sense, then, to expect wholesale schematic changes for Miami in 2014-2015 given James’ departure, but apparently Spoelstra and company will stay true to the systems going forward that helped the Heat to so much recent success.
