Bosh didn’t go easy on DeRozan. He also entered the NBA after one season in college at Georgia Tech. There were no free passes in the pros for inexperience. DeRozan credits Bosh for helping to kick start his career. “He was tough on me from the standpoint, I think he knew how good I could be,” DeRozan told Basketball Insiders. “I was the starting guard with him, (Hedo) Turkoglu, (Andrea) Bargnani, Jose Calderon. I was the only rookie out there. A lot of mistakes I made, he would just be hard on me about it so I could be better. He was a good dude. He’s a good friend of mine.” Basketball Insiders

Miami forward Luol Deng sustained a hard hit to the arm in the second quarter of Tuesday’s 108-91 loss to the Rockets and might miss time. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after the game he was unsure whether Deng will be available when Miami visits the Hornets on Wednesday. “He’s not going to make any excuses for it, but he got whacked on the arm and you could see he just wasn’t quite the same in terms of being able to lift his arm and play normal,” Spoelstra said.

LeBron James said he "didn't even see the tweets" posted more than three years ago by now Portland Trail Blazers All-Star Damian Lillard that disparaged James during the 2011 NBA Finals, and Lillard said he's apologized to James.

Defense was never an issue for Heat forward Luol Deng. He knew he would make the adjustment to playing in a new defensive scheme. He’s never had a problem with that side of the ball regardless of where he played. The question during training camp was if Deng, an offseason acquisition, could fit in offensively. It’s early but seems the acclimation process is going smoother than expected. “I think that I am ahead [of schedule] but it’s only been three games,” Deng said. “I really think that it will get better as the season goes on. I’m just starting to play the game and not think too much … You’re at your best when you’re just reacting.” South Florida Sun-Sentinel
