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 »

With everyone so focused on the double travesties going down in the Big Apple — New York is ready to can Mike Woodson and Brooklyn has resorted to all types of shady practices involving soda to try to win games — two other underachievers have gotten away relatively unscathed. Cleveland was supposed to be one of the up-and-coming teams in the East this year. Instead, in one of the worst conferences we’ve ever seen, they’re still just 9-15 and out of the playoff picture.

Four years ago, compiling a list of the 25 best players in Miami Heat history meant adding on a few that probably would not have been known of outside of Miami. How times have changed. In four years, the Heat have tacked on All-Star after All-Star, Hall of Famer after Hall of Famer and have made their all-time roster one of the best in the history of the game.
