HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
LeBron is both the best basketball player on earth and one of the smartest people out there at now understanding his brand and managing it.
Not sure which is more impressive about LeBron's time in Miami: How he learned to win championships, or how to win the optics game.
Bosh on Tyler Johnson: "Huge potential. The more he plays, the better he's going to get."
Bosh on camp invitee Tyler Johnson: "Jumping all the time, trying to dunk everything."
Still hearing some talk from Heat players about Udonis Haslem and the corner 3. We'll see if that becomes something this year.
Sorry, I meant that I'm seeing Heat/Rockets tomorrow night. My schedule hasn't gotten that crazy -- 2 games in same night -- yet.
Seeing Bulls/Cavaliers tonight & Heat/Rockets tonight. Mute as you please.
Justin Hamilton says today is the last day he's on blood thinners and will meet with trainers. Should be back to full speed later this week.
Bosh on why people are surprised by Tyler Johnson's athleticism: "Well, yeah. You know the obvious..." Pauses and laughs, "He's a short PG."
Bosh on if Napier is Heat's best natural PG, "He's naturally little so he's got to be a good point guard."
Today is Justin Hamilton's last scheduled day on blood thinners. He could return to full practice from his heart procedure Tuesday.
Justin Hamilton comes off blood thinners today, so he could be back to full contact as early as Wednesday.
I’m penciling in Andre Dawkins as the Heat’s 15th man, but rookie Tyler Johnson probably has more all-around potential.
Undrafted rookie guard Andre Dawkins is the Heat’s best three-point shooter, so that’s probably a concern.
Spoelstra says Hamilton took part in a large majority of practice, though he isn't fully cleared for full contact. http://t.co/PIjhV5AJxV
Hamilton participated in the majority of practice today.
So Hamilton isn’t back to full-contact after all. Today was the date for his full return, but the team is being cautious.
Heat center Justin Hamilton returned to full-contact practice today.
Despite all the offensive positives yesterday, Bill Lazor said: "I was very disappointed with a lot of the play yesterday."
The Heat have signed point guard Larry Drew II, likely to turn around, cut him, assign him to their D-League team.
Kevin Coyle said "it won't be tough" to find a role for Jordan despite Dolphins' depth at DE. "He's a very talented guy."
Heat announce signing of Larry Drew II. Roster at 19 now.
Philbin told team after game they haven't won consecutive games. Asked about that, Philbin said,"How did that get out?" Was on team web site
Philbin just strongly left the impression that Brandon Gibson wasn't active because of coaching decision, not because of injury.
Players off today so Dion Jordan won't return to Dolphins until Tuesday. Philbin eager to see where he's at physically/conditioning wise.
Sporting News, in player vote, names Marlins 3B Casey McGehee the NL Comeback Player of Year.
ACC announces the North Carolina at UM game Nov. 1 will be 12:30 p.m., and televised as part of ACC's syndicated package.
By comparison, Kobe Bryant has missed more shots (51) than Dwyane Wade has TAKEN (46) in similar minutes.
Kobe leads all players in shots per 36 minutes this preseason (23 FGA). He's shooting 37 percent from the floor.
I'm guessing the players would go for shortened season in name of quality of play, but not at risk of losing paychecks.
Quick TV note: Fox is airing Atlanta-Detroit from London at 9:30 a.m. EST next Sunday, meaning anyone can watch 4 full NFL games next Sunday
One Dolphins defender on the performance: "We kicked their a--."
Dolphins out-gained Bears, 393-224. Tannehill six rushes, 48 yards. Miller 18 for 61. Clay 4 catches, 48 yds, 1 TD. Wallace 5-46, 1 TD.
Tannehill's final numbers: 25 for 32, 277 yards. 123.6 passer rating highest of career, edging 123.2 vs. Jacksonville rookie season.
Clearly Brandon Marshall is just upset about being left out of the Ryan Tannehill era.
Sturgis gets this field goal. Dolphins make it 27-14 with 2:13 left.
Touchdown erased because of the penalty but lengthy scoring drive has taken a ton of time off the clock. Like what they didn't do vs Packers
Tannehill with arguably his biggest play of the day because of when it took place.
Important first down for the Dolphins. Get enough of them and the Bears won't have time to catch up.
Rare defensive miscue on that penalty leads to the second Bears touchdown.
Sturgis' 37 yard field goal attempt is blocked. He also missed a field goal in the first half.
Yet another huge Bears turnover. Randy Starks recovers the ball for the Dolphins and here's another chance to add to their tally.
The Bears are tanking.
Cameron Wake was bound to have a huge play. Just about a perfect sequence for him from start to end.
More boos at stadium following Jay Cutler's fumble.
So, apparently, Chicago's defense convinces men to do household chores on Sundays.
Just received a text from a Bears fan, regarding the defense: "I quit watching. I'm mowing the yard."
Lamar Miller (2-yard TD rush) and the Dolphins answer back with their own scoring drive. 21-7 with seconds left in the 3rd quarter.
Very well. That 4th-and-1 turned out pretty good for Dolphins and Tannehill.
Nice call by Joe Philbin. Allowed Tannehill to show off his "deceptive" speed.
Bears finally respond with their first scoring drive of the game. Dolphins D-line giving up that fourth-and-1 play was huge.
Bears make it look easy on that drive. Right back in the game.
Tannehill at halftime: 14 for 15, 176 yds, 155.1 rating. Since halftime of GB game, he's 26 for 30 for 323 yards.
Tannehill misses on his first throw just before the first half ends. Then gets sacked again.
What's frustrating about Tannehill's inconsistency is that he can look REALLY good when he's on his game. Lots of peaks and valleys.
Bears fans are already booing
Tannehill is now at 10-10, 136 yards, and 2 touchdown passes with 5:20 left in the first half.
There it is. Mike Wallace gets his sixth touchdown reception in his last 7 games for Miami.
If only the Dolphins could play against this Bears defense every week.
Dolphins have to take advantage and get a score here.
Mildly surprised that the penalty flag didn't ultimately negate that huge Dolphins play + the big 50-yard return.
Reshad Jones joins Brent Grimes, Walt Aikens and Jimmy Wilson with one interception each this year.
It's funny how Brandon Marshall says the Dolphins were a QB away, yet he plays with Cutler.
Dolphins get their first interception of the season besides their London game, where they had 3 vs the Raiders.
If only the Dolphins could play against bad Jay Cutler every week.
What a play by Finnegan there.
Bears get just their second first down of the game minutes into the second quarter.
With that miss, Sturgis now 4 for 9 in his career on field goals of 50 yards or more.
Sturgis can't get the field goal. Bears secondary has been so-so but their defensive line are racking up sacks.
That last possession was a missed opportunity for Dolphins. Could have put pressure on Bears.
Okay, this is getting ridiculous with the field here.
Dolphins have their way with Bears defense thus far.
Tannehill did a great job avoiding the initial sack attempt but then waited too long afterwards.
