Ray Allen is staying in shape should NBA teams come calling. The 39-year-old former Miami Heat star reportedly has been leaning toward retirement in recent months, but on Monday night signaled interest in returning to the NBA. "At my age I need to stay in shape," he said, if teams need his services as they move toward the second half of the season. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Seems like Miami Heat owner Mickey Arison might be a bit bitter about LeBron leaving Miami for Cleveland this summer. Arison took a not-so-subtle shot at LeBron and Cleveland on twitter last night. Arison retweeted two Forbes tweets, one which says Cleveland is the unhappiest place to work and another saying that Miami is the happiest. It’s no Dan Gilbert but it’s the first time since the Decision 2.0 that Arison has shown any signs of displeasure at LeBron for leaving. Bro Bible

Norris Cole is content on being a member of the Miami Heat. He also knows anything is possible around this time of year. With trade rumors starting to swirl around the league, Cole is focusing only on his current situation. As of now, he is the Heat's backup point guard. That is his only concern. "Anything is possible," Cole said before Friday's game against the Sacramento Kings. "I know the business of the NBA. I just try to control what I can control and don't worry about it, at least try not to. Obviously, we're human." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Cole is aware that the Heat might be shopping him around, but he said on Friday morning that it’s not a distraction. “Until I hear something and see the writing on the paper, I’m a member of the team I’m on now,” Cole said. “I want to help my teammates and help us to win, and that’s all I concentrate on. Until it’s in black and white, I really don’t consider it.” Miami Herald

Cole and the Heat couldn’t agree on a rookie-scale contract extension in October, so he will be a restricted free agent this summer. “I have to remain professional,” Cole said. “It wouldn’t be fair to my teammates if I become a problem or anything, so I remain professional and play to win. I’m a winner. I’m a champion.” Miami Herald

"Welcome to the NBA," Spoelstra said. "Once you get to this month, it's rumors and stories out there are wild and 99 percent of them don't come true. You control what you can control. That's part of building mental toughness. We talk about it all the time. Does it affect your paycheck? Does it affect you doing your job? No." South Florida Sun-Sentinel
