HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
Oh man a ball almost bounced in it and sent it splattering. I'm gonna be sick.
S.W.A.T team moves in on the puke. Players out for halftime warmups. http://t.co/4j0fSzopDA
Update: Security threw a towel over the vomit. So everything's fine now. Just don't pick up that towel or step on it. http://t.co/m4JvxK2YPS
Full task force for the courtside vomit. Three people working on it. One staffer just walked away saying, "I can't even look at it."
Man, they still haven't cleaned up the puke. It's just 2 feet out of bounds near the baseline. Please no one step in it.
Oh boy. Some kid vomited courtside here at Heat-Clippers.
Shabazz Napier finally gets in the scoring column with a pair of free throws.
What are you Heat fans doing with your LeBron jerseys and LeBron shoes and LeBron Sprite? I'm serious. Tweet me your answers.
There is a Mariachi band set to play at halftime. Will certainly remind Heat coaching staff of San Antonio.
Tyler Johnson wears No. 57 and I can't stop thinking of Heinz
I'll be interested to see if any Heat guys wear LeBrons next season. Several did the past few years.
Tyler Johnson has his own fan club here.
Tyler Johnson is fun to watch.
One of the Clippers' summer coaches is Natalie Nakase, who aspires to be NBA's 1st female coach. She's the team's asst. video coordinator.
I've never been to Las Vegas before. No. 1 thing that shocked me is the number of kids here. One is probably too many.
UMiami guys in Vegas: Rion Brown (CHA), Kenny Kadji (MIL), DeQuan Jones (NO), Shane Larkin (NY), Trey McKinney-Jones (SA).
FSU'ers in Vegas: Bernard James (DAL), Solomon Alabi (DEN), Xavier Gibson (LAL).
UF'ers in Vegas: Erik Murphy (UTA), Scottie Wilbekin (PHI), Patric Young (NO), Casey Prather (ATL).
Rodney Carney, 30, is playing in Vegas for POR. Out of the league since '11. Check out who he's played for lately: http://t.co/hxfkN8t63P
Delonte West, almost 31 yrs old, playing for LAC in Vegas league. Been out of the NBA since 2012.
Heat summer league-- Best player: James Ennis. Most important: Shabazz Napier. Most fun to watch: Tyler Johnson.
Heat face a Clippers team featuring Delonte West tonight in summer league.
Riley on Granger signing: “One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven veteran like Danny with All-Star experience."
Heat confirm Granger signing. Riley-"One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven vet like Danny w/ All-Star experience"
Riley on Granger (cont.), "We expect him to be a multi-position player and have a very successful season in our system.”
Riley on Granger, "One of our main priorities this offseason was obtaining a proven veteran like Danny with All-Star experience . . . "
And now Heat signs Danny Granger.
Waiters will be the Cleveland Chalmers.
Not quite sure why Heat fans want to trade Cole. Whatever the Heat could get for him wouldn't be worth as much as a quality backup PG.
Riley on McRoberts signing: “We felt from day one that he was one of our main targets."
Riley on Josh McRoberts: "We felt from day one that he was one of our main targets."
Riley on McRoberts (cont), "... will help us immensely in being the kind of team that Coach Spoelstra wants with his versatility."
Riley on McRoberts, "We felt from day one that he was one of our main targets. We are delighted that this multi-faceted player..."
And Heat now announce formal signing of Josh McRoberts.
Heat confirm Josh McRoberts signing. Riley: "He was one of our main targets. We are delighted that this multi-faceted player will help us."
Easy to forget Chalmers led Heat in 3-point percentage last season.
No word in Heat release which teammate would be designated to berate Chalmers in wake of LeBron departure. Might come down to auditions.
Of course Chalmers re-signed after Heat free-agency overtures to Kyle Lowry and acquisition of Shabazz Napier in first round of draft.
Riley on Chalmers (cont.): "and I believe he will have a great season.”
Riley on Chalmers,"It’s great to have Mario back.We’re happy that he wants to continue his career in Miami, he’s one of our core players...
Heat confirm Chalmers signing. Riley: "He’s one of our core players & I believe he will have a great season.”
Also, look out for piece on the Heat's post-LeBron plan with some number-crunching on Bosh/max. Should be up soon.
For those asking for explanation of various cap mechanisms, Twitter is great for many things, explaining CBA in 140 char. not one of them.
As for Birdman, he has a $915,000 cap hold, which, after they get capped again, Heat can turn into something close to mid-level money.
FYI, the Heat do have that $2.7 million space exception left. Has to be used on a free agent.
If I'm Heat and still have $2.7 million space exception, conversation would go, "Hello, Jordan Crawford?"
Champs selling Heat jerseys with whatshisname on it for 50% off. Shuttlesworth jerseys still full price.
One name the Heat have explored as a shooting option: Mario Chalmers' former Kansas teammate Brandon Rush
Someone just asked me when my last off day was. Hadn't thought about since right now: March 25.
So Heat can get done with loading up the cap to the limit, then address Birdman. So still should have $2.7M exception left.
To clarify confusion on Birdman: Heat can afford to pay him $5M because it doesn't have to count against cap limit, because of low cap hold.
Best shot scenario for Heat may be under-cap exception of $2.7M -- if not used for current player -- or something close to that exception.
No matter Wade's salary, or how u twist math, there doesn't appear to be any way for Heat to get Bledsoe, Monroe, Stephenson. Think smaller.
Appearing on NBC6 to talk Heat free agency
Estimated crowd of 70,000 tonight for Portland Timbers at Seattle Sounders. What?
ESPN reports Caron Butler to Detroit.
You're not seeing specific figures on Heat contracts because that's all still being worked out. Depends on other numbers, and timing.
People, if you are smart, you will have your taxes done next year by Andy Elisburg. Fascinating number crunching going on at 601 Biscayne.
Wild times for Heat, with agreements being reached by players to sign with team, with much maneuvering regarding how they will fit in cap.
Confirmed to Sun Sentinel that Chris Andersen will return to Heat. Terms still being finalized based on how Heat are approaching cap.
REPORTER: What's your prediction for that first game against the Cavs? HASLEM: "Pain."
McRoberts and Birdman … now whatcha gonna do with it?
Breaking this news thusly: Birdman. Birdman.
But keep this in mind, from here looking at mostly minimums: Has to be veteran motivated for playoff pursuit (Jameer? Caron?)
Oh, and forgot Granger, so make that 12 out of 15 spots likely already in place. (Tough crowd in 'Mentions' land.)
A dazed-and-confused Friday has led to a bring-it-on Sunday. Pat Riley rolled up his sleeves, began to counter-punch.
So signed or going to sign: Bosh, Wade, Deng, McRoberts, Chalmers, Cole, Birdman, Haslem, Hamilton. Napier, Ennis likely soon. That's 11.
Birdman back. Ray Allen next?
Yahoo! Sports reports Chris Andersen has agreed to a multi-year deal with Miami. Fought off a late big by the Knicks.
