The 25 Greatest Miami Heat Players In Franchise History

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh

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. Outside of Los Angeles and Boston, they have compiled names that could possibly rival that of any franchise that has existed since the earliest days of the NBA. Read More »

The 30 Best Players Born Outside Of The States In NBA History

Dirk Nowitzki

The NBA is always loaded with incredible talent. Players come from all over the world, and the best part about the NBA’s diversity is that some of the best talent the league comes from many different countries. Dime thought it would be appropriate to rank some of the best talent born outside of the States in NBA history. Read More »

Hawks Want Dwight Howard; Avery Bradley Calls Ray Allen A “Great Tutor”

Dwight Howard

For the first time since perhaps the days of the Human Highlight Film, people soon might actually want to go to Atlanta and check out the Hawks. The basketball team, stuck in the longest “decent but never good enough to scare anyone” mode of any NBA team, possibly ever, is apparently going to go after Dwight Howard if he becomes available as a free agent next summer. Since Howard can’t make up his mind and new Orlando GM Rob Hennigan struggles with the idea behind the word “trade,” the chances Howard plays out the year in Disney World, the Magic have the most dysfunctional NBA season we’ve ever seen, Dwight beats up three or four different Disney characters and ends up FINALLY leaving next summer are looking stronger than ever.

Video: The Heat Celebrate An Eastern Conference Championship With A Dance Party

Heat

Only four more wins separate LeBron James and the Miami Heat from getting their first championship ring during the Big Three era. While maintaining an all-business look in the last two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, James finally got to let off some steam following the Game 7 victory and celebrated the Heat’s back-to-back trip to the Finals by dancing with his teammates.

Celtics and Heat gear up for 7-game showdown

Kevin Garnett

Apparently the Celtics and Heat are in a competition to set the record for having the most players in training camp and under contract. Yesterday the Celtics extended camp invites to Mario West (Hawks), Stephane Lasme (UMass), Chris Johnson (LSU) and Jamar Smith (Southern Indiana), bringing their preliminary roster count to approximately 47. It’s gonna look like ABCD Camp the first few days before Doc Rivers starts making cuts … With every new guy Boston brings in, Luke Harangody has to be getting more nervous. He’s likely going to be the slowest, least-athletic guy in camp, which is bad if you’re 12th in line, but worse if you’re 20th in line. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Rony Seikaly Talks LeBron, Miami Heat & DJing

Before Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh & LeBron James took Miami by storm, there was one man that ran South Beach. And his name was Rony Seikaly. Averaging 16 points, 10 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game during his career with the Heat, the man nicknamed “The Spin Doctor” (due to his trademark low-post spin moves), is still considered a living legend. Nowadays, Seikaly has traded in his spin moves on the court for spinning on the turntables, as he is an up-and-coming DJ/Producer who recently signed with Subliminal Records. Yesterday, we got up with Miami’s first ever draft pick to talk about LeBron, the Miami heat and life in the world of DJing. Read More »

Rony Seikaly Will DJ Your Party

Rony Seikaly

We’ve all heard of NBA players trying to rap or sing, but it isn’t too often you hear about players trying to be DJs. Former NBA player Rony Seikaly is supposedly legit on the ones and twos. The 6-11 center from Lebanon played 11 seasons (1987-’99) in the league, where he had respectable career averages of 14.9 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. He spent the majority of his career with Miami, where he was on the roster for the franchise’s inaugural season. Read More »

Jerry Sloan Has No Beef With Carlos Boozer

Carlos Boozer

Being a Jazz fan can be very dramatic. We hold Kevin Federline-sized grudges and we take everything personally. Karl Malone wants to leave us for the Lakers? We hate you and will boo you. Rony Seikaly and Derek Harper don’t want to play in Salt Lake because of the lack of nightlife? Ditto.

Right now, Carlos Boozer is comfortably holding down the top spot on Jazz fans’ sh*t list. Previous to this summer, Boozer was already skating on thin ice with Utah fans because they feel his play is inconsistent, he doesn’t play hurt and he always expresses his interest in playing for Miami. Boozer’s inability to keep his mouth shut this summer was the final straw for Jazz nation. Read More »
