What makes these videos of native Philadelphians Kobe Bryant and Dion Waiters going nuts the moment the Eagles officially defeated the Patriots to win their first Super Bowl is how relatable they are. Trust me.
The Miami Heat are in Mexico City today to play the Brooklyn Nets. It sounds like they’ve been having fun exploring the city, when they are not busy abandoning head coach Erik Spoelstra at scenic parks. No really!
The NBA’s resident good boy LeBron James got really upset over a no-call and they just threw him right out of the game, right there. It didn’t really end up having a major impact, but it felt like a big deal at the time.
The Heat and Bulls are playing this afternoon in Chicago. Probably no one should be watching this game—the Heat are meh, and the Bulls are whoa that milk belongs in the trash, man—but there are few options on a football Sunday if you’re an NBA fan, and this was the only 3:30 p.m. game on today’s slate. Your punishment…
Heat guard Dion Waiters made kind of a dumb and reckless play going for a loose ball Friday night against the Utah Jazz. His effort sent him crashing into the infinitely long legs of Jazz center Rudy Gobert, the right one of which bent inwards at a terrifying angle:
The offshore holdings of New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft, along with those of several other American sports owners, have been discovered in the Paradise Papers—the millions of leaked documents that detail the international financial data of some of the world’s largest corporations and wealthiest…
K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune is reporting Sunday night that Dwyane Wade and the Chicago Bulls have agreed to a buyout, a move that will immediately make Wade a free agent. This was an inevitability virtually the moment the Bulls completed the Jimmy Butler trade back in June.
Miami police have released the arrest affidavit for new Los Angeles Clippers forward Willie Reed. In it, Reed’s wife says the ex-Heat player got upset Saturday afternoon when she said she wanted a divorce, leading to him “twist[ing] her arm causing her to kneel to the ground.” In response she says she hit him in the…
A little over one year ago, I wrote a blog post about Dion Waiters signing with the Miami Heat on a one-year, $2.9 million deal after turning down a qualifying offer worth $6.8 million from the Thunder. That blog had a shit-eating grin of a headline—Dion Waiters Handled His Free Agency Like He Handles Open Corner…
OK, I know it’s just Summer League, and I know most of these guys are scrubs, but Bam Adebayo is already the most fun rookie to watch in the NBA:
Chris Bosh has not played in an NBA game since Feb. 9, 2016, after which the Heat’s all-star center was forced to sit out the second half of the season for the second year in a row with blood clot issues. Bosh did not play at all this season, although he’s maintained the position that he is healthy enough to play. The…
More than a year after he last appeared in a game, Chris Bosh has reportedly reached an agreement with the Miami Heat and the NBA Players Association that will both allow him to become a free agent and the Heat to receive maximum salary cap relief.
Aww hell. The Miami Heat blew out the Wizards tonight to finish their season at 41-41, but they missed the playoffs by a hair as the Pacers and Bulls both won tonight. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is usually good for a fairly even-keeled postgame interview, but tonight he gave just the saddest speech after the loss. It…
Tonight, the last night of the NBA’s regular season, will settle the Eastern Conference’s seventh and eighth playoff seeds, the last two unsettled spots in the postseason. The Miami Heat, currently sitting in ninth thanks to tiebreakers, can claim one of those spots, technically, but almost certainly won’t. That sucks.
The LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers coughed up another fourth-quarter lead tonight and lost in overtime to the Miami Heat. The result gives the Boston Celtics the first seed in the Eastern Conference and keeps the Miami Heat’s playoff hopes alive. It’s also utterly demoralizing for the Cavs.
The Miami Heat’s James Johnson dunked on Marcus Morris so hard in Tuesday’s game against the Pistons that Morris’s twin brother Markieff probably felt it, too.
Kyrie Irving somehow managed to shake Rodney McGruder, skip his way to the hoop, and deliver a gem of a reverse layup during tonight’s game against the Heat.
You’re about to watch a defensive effort by 76ers center Jahlil Okafor. Be warned: It is the softest, wet-noodliest defense you’ll ever see in your dang life.
