After keeping Chalmers, Heat must dump Bosh

  For a team that just won a championship, deciding to keep their young and instrumental point guard for $4 million seems like a no-brainer. For the Miami Heat, their decision to keep Mario Chalmers for next season may have significant repercussions.   Quite frankly, you can’t keep everybody.   The Miami Heat maxed...

Game 2 adjustments for Miami

  While many feel that the Heat are in trouble considering that they got great shooting efforts from their role players and still lost to the Spurs, who didn’t exactly light it up from the outside themselves….but, I say otherwise. Miami lost by only four points, despite getting nothing from their deadly transition attack. San...

Chris Bosh suffering from ‘Pau Gasol Syndrome’

  Last week, I called Chris Bosh ‘Dark Nowitzki‘ due to his volume of long-range perimeter shots vs the Indiana Pacers. Now, as the NBA Finals have begun, I see that nickname was actually too complimentary. Nowitzki, after all, has an MVP award for both the regular season and the finals. No no, Bosh...

Recap: Spurs take Game 1 in Miami

  The San Antonio Spurs started the game with a turnover that led to a Dwyane Wade dunk. They responded by scoring the next nine points. Oh, and they also had only three more turnovers the rest of the game.   San Antonio had the lead 19-18, and then trailed for the next 3...

Chris Bosh has become ‘Dark Nowitzki’

  Some say ‘you live by the jumper, you die by the jumper’. Well, in the past two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, the defending champion Miami Heat have lived and died by the Bosh. His matchup with the rim-protecting, 7’3″ Roy Hibbert has been the story of the series thusfar.   Chris was...

Spoelstra to coach East, start Bosh?

  By virtue of beating the new-look Toronto Raptors on Sunday, the Miami Heat have have assured that their head coach will be working on All-Star Sunday. Erik Spoelstra will coach the Eastern Conference squad, one which featured three of his own players. While Lebron James and Dwyane Wade have been selected to start, there’s still the...

All-Star Sham: Josh Smith got robbed

  For those of you not in the ATL, Josh Smith was passed up for an All-Star spot for the second year in a row yesterday (see list here). He had the numbers to get in (17 pts, 8 rebs, 4 assts, 2 blks, 1 stls). He even had the team success coaches like to see. The...

Note to Celtics: Stop playing Miami’s game

  If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. That must be Boston’s modo when facing the Miami Heat. It’s no surprise Kevin Garnett threw some fake elbows last night…he’s really just a fake center like Bosh. Doc Rivers paid a lot of lip service to the signing of Darko Milicic in training camp only to cement him...

Heat-Clippers: What we learned in China

  The first of two matchups between the Heat and Clippers from China is in the books, Miami led from start to finish. Despite having another game this weekend, we already have learned quite a bit about both teams early on. We all know that Heat starting center Chris Bosh is an All-Star but, if...

Heat wanted Stoudemire, not Bosh

  The power forward matchup in the Knicks-Heat series has been full of drama…..none of it coming on the actual court, though. If you like storylines then this has been the matchup for you. Chris Bosh brought another life into this world just before Game 3…while Amar’e Stoudemire apparently felt he could put out...

Don’t Underestimate the Heat

  A few weeks back, I said that the Miami Heat are mentally weak and not even as good as last season’s team. Their play since has only lived down to that assessment. I’m not backing off those statements, especially after their recent stretch of lackluster games (the Bobcat win doesn’t count). However, I...

The East is…

  …boring?……predictable?? They definitely are who we thought they were….. Going into the season, most people thought the Eastern Conference was pretty much a known commodity. It was the Heat, the Bulls and everyone else. A couple of teams are better than we thought (Sixers…Magic…) and few are worse (Knicks…Knicks…), but for the most...

Bulls Feelin’ The Heat

  If you think this title implies that the Chicago Bulls are feeling pressure from Miami these days, you need to bone up on your street vernacular. Just like someone can be feelin’ a new song, a new car, a new girl…that’s how Tom Thibodeau‘s crew is feelin’ the Miami Heat. Despite losing this past...

‘Amnesty Clause’ Gone Wild

‘Amnesty Clause’ Gone Wild

The hot topic in the NBA right now is the triumphant return of the ‘amnesty clause’ which allows each team to waive one player and get his contract off the salary cap. This provision was a hit in the NBA almost a decade ago and will most likely be remixed when the new CBA is reached...

Heat Must Trade Bosh

Let me start by saying that I’m not a hater of ‘The Big Three’ in Miami. The main reason why? because there isn’t one. I see two superstars and a one really talented “bigman” that just doesn’t fit in. Sure I, like everyone else, was disheartened last summer when three of the top free agents all decided...
