When Dwyane Wade had dinner with LeBron James and attended his high school camp in Las Vegas in the days leading up leading up to The King’s decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, it spelled good things for the Miami Heat. The ensuing news that Wade was a guest on James’ charter flight from Vegas to South Florida was just another feather in the Heat’s free agency cap. But Wade’s time with James turned out to suggest nothing of LeBron’s intentions, a reality that hardly surprised him once the dust had settled. Read More »

When LeBron James announced he was returning to Cleveland, the Heat didn’t have much time to sulk. They had to get to work right away, as another one of their superstars, Chris Bosh, was highly sought-after on the open market. On the same day LeBron left, the Heat re-signed Bosh to a five-year deal. From there, they made other moves to remain a contender in the East, including bringing in Luol Deng as LeBron’s replacement. Yesterday, Miami owner Micky Arison published a letter addressing expectations for next season.

I think of his mom, Carmen Velasquez being the loudest in packed gym during our Saturday morning games. I think of his older brother Timmie leading his high school team to the state championship game at the Boston Garden and scoring 27 points. Read More »
