Two Of The NBA Draft’s Best-Kept Secrets: Romero Osby & Durand Scott

Durand Scott

The 2013 NBA Draft is being dubbed as dry in talent, mediocrity looming throughout its ranks. Few things are more frustrating for an individual than being overlooked. Romero Osby from Oklahoma and Durand Scott from Miami are hardly being mentioned in most mock drafts. Read More »

5 Reasons Why Miami Will Make The Final Four

Shane Larkin

In what feels like the blink of an eye, we went through (technically) three rounds of the NCAA Tournament. Some separated themselves from the rest, like Florida and Arizona. The Miami Hurricanes should also be added to that list. Read More »

March Madness Is Finally Here; LeBron James & Miami’s Win Streak Reaches 22

Cody Zeller

A few interesting subplots went down in the NBA last night, headlined by Miami invading Jurassic Park and destroying the Raptors. But it all still took a backseat to March Madness … While many predicted the top four No. 1 seeds correctly (Louisville, Kansas, Gonzaga and Indiana), that still didn’t stop Jay Bilas and the rest of the fellas from questioning them.

Brandon Jennings Dishes 19 Assists; Jrue Holiday Wins His Duel With Stephen Curry

Brandon Jennings

We took a break from hitting replay on the new Game of Thrones trailer to catch the Toronto/Milwaukee game, and outside of the terrible jersey choices (when did this trend begin of both teams wearing away uni colors? It needs to end now), the matchup was surprisingly awesome. The Bucks won 122-114 after dominating the overtime period, mainly because Ersan Ilyasova (29 points, 11 rebounds) morphed into a Hall of Famer at times in the second half and OT, and because Brandon Jennings morphed into Magic Johnson.

Dwyane Wade Passes A Scoring Milestone; An Indiana All-Star Makes His Season Debut

Dwyane Wade

Without drama, how can you even get excited? That’s how we felt watching the Heat roll over Philly last night, doing it so effortlessly in the second half that not even Andrew Bynum‘s new haircut could get us going. In the Heat’s 114-90 win, the third quarter wasn’t even fair. Miami hit the hosts with a 15-3 run, and had LeBron (16 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists) and Dwyane Wade (33 points) rolling: making the extra pass, hitting from midrange, the entire offense flowed like water.

Kyrie Irving Can’t Beat Denver By Himself; A Philly Surprise Erupts

Andre Iguodala

Once we saw the schedule had Denver and Cleveland last night, we set our watches. Ty Lawson. Kyrie Irving. Could it get any better? The matchup never materialized, however, and Lawson is probably thankful for that. He scored just 11 while Irving dropped 26 points and seven assists. But part of that stems from Denver being one of the deepest teams in the league, and Irving being asked to do everything outside of fill his team’s water bottles. Read More »

NBA Draft: You Need To Know About Denis Clemente

Rewind to three years ago, when it looked like it might be all over for Denis Clemente. After two suspensions for violations of team rules, including one beginning midseason that lasted until year’s end, Miami Hurricanes head coach Frank Haith dismissed the talented sophomore point guard from his squad. Faced with a mandatory transfer redshirt year, Clemente made the move to Manhattan, Kansas to rejuvenate his career as a Wildcat. Now, with two All-Big 12 selections and one prestigious All-American award to his name, one thing is clear: a lot can change in three years. Read More »
