Dolphins say Dion Jordan has a week long grace period where he can practice but not have to be added to 53.If he plays in game,he's on 53.
My NYC cab driver is singing to his infant son on face time while swerving through traffic at a high rate of speed. Incredibly sweet & scary
Erik Spoelstra on dealing with roster turnover: "That's the life we chose... I'm going on my 20th year here."
Erik Spoelstra says Josh McRoberts (toe) felt ready & wanted to practice yesterday, but staff held him out.
Bosh says he was a lesser player in Toronto than he is now. Going back to Toronto Chris Bosh would be regression.
Bosh on Houston: "They're a title contender with or without me."
Bosh: "I consider myself a decently smart person."
Bosh on Heat media sessions being a little smaller this year: "Yeah, I don't know why."
I'm alone in the security line at MIA airport. Is this heaven or the set of punk'd?
Joakim Noah, Gator, on getting booed in Columbus: "Because we won the championship. And then we beat them in football. It's all good, tho."
if you know me.. then you know the first thing I had to do when I saw an alligator was pick it up for a picture
LeBron on Derrick Rose: "I'm not surprised at all. As a league, as a fan, it's great to have him back playing at a high level."
Joakim Noah, 4 his (unusual) praise of Heat, did add this about Deng's situation: "Hopefully, it's not THAT good. But I love him to death."
.... (2/2) Gasol said he was honored by Bosh & Wade reaching out to him, and that he spoke to LeBron, who never told him not to go to Miami.
Spoke at length to Pau Gasol about his recruitment by Heat. He says their situation was too "unclear" at time he made decision... (1/2)
Cavaliers beat Bulls in 1st look at each other. But the story was Derrick Rose (30 points), electric on 2nd night of back-to-back.
Rose has Kyrie Irving on skates.
Derrick Rose w/ 20 at the half in Columbus. No one on the Cavaliers can guard him (they haven't tried LeBron yet).
Ohio State marching band playing at halftime here in Columbus. I"m going to see if I can find Terry Porter.
No way of knowing if this will last.... but Derrick Rose looks 2011 fast tonight.
Aaron Brooks is the new DJ Augustin who was the new Nate Robinson who was the new John Lucas III who was the new CJ Watson.
Curious how Thibodeau will use all this depth.... especially when he's using Jimmy Butler (not available tonight) for 48 minutes.
Joakim Noah receives roughly the same reception in Columbus, Ohio, that he does in Miami. So that's something in common.
Tyler Johnson has $75K guarantee, Khem Birch $50K, so Heat keeping either on the opening-night roster would not cost extra in short run.
Tom Thibodeau says Jimmy Butler (wrist) is day to day. Won't play tonight vs Cavaliers in Columbus. Both teams playing most regulars.
I still like Cavs out of the East. And that's even presuming that D-Rose will be durable.
Dolphins continue to look at ex-UM receivers.Had T. Streeter on p-squad to start season before being cut. Today signed LaRon Byrd to p squad
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.
