Warriors’ Klay Thompson, Heat’s Chris Bosh Named Players Of The Week

Klay Thompson, Chris Bosh

Klay Thompson and Chris Bosh are playing under heightened expectations in 2014-2015. After scoring a four-year, max-level extension on Friday, the 24 year-old Golden State Warriors sharpshooter is charged with playing like one of the best wings in basketball. And no longer in the shadow of LeBron James, the All-Star lefty must resume the alpha dog status he sacrificed four years ago for the Miami Heat to remain an Eastern Conference contender. If their play in the first few games of the regular season is any indication, Thompson and Bosh won’t have any trouble living in brighter spotlights. The pair were named Players of the Week in their respective conferences after leading the Warriors and Heat to undefeated records. Read More »

Dan Le Batard Mocks Cavs And LeBron On Twitter

LeBron James

New uniforms, new court, the NBA’s best player returning to his hometown to play in a nationally televised home debut while a coterie of all-stars surround him. Check, check, check and check. Still, the Knicks played spoiler last night, 95-90 on TNT, when LeBron James and the Cavs came out flat to start the 2014-15 NBA season. As a result, Miami sports columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard, a frequent LeBron and Cavs foil ever since Decision 2.0 was announced, exhibited quite a bit of schadenfreude on Twitter during and after Cleveland’s stunning opening home loss.

Video: Watch Rookie Shabazz Napier Lead The Heat Past Spurs In OT

Jeff Ayres, Shabazz Napier

Shabazz Napier is forcing Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra into an uncomfortable position when it comes to the Heat’s point guards. With Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers ahead of Napier in the depth chart, something might have to change if Napier continues to torch teams in preseason like he did in Miami’s OT win over the still short-handed defending champs on Saturday night.

Udonis Haslem Threatens To “Back Hand” The “Punks Hiding Behind Social Media”

Udonis Haslem

We really hope Udonis Haslem doesn’t get fined. The 11-year Heat veteran and three-time NBA champion took umbrage with a recent comment on an Instagram photo and decided to respond. Unfortunately the rhetoric will might get him in trouble with the league office and it’ll only spur on the mongoloids who think it’s OK to trash athletes and others while sitting comfortably ensconced behind the screen of their phone or computer.

Erik Spoelstra

Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says he’s open to learning potential benefits gleaned from the NBA’s 44-minute game experiment.
