Waiting makes sense for both Heat and Cole. For Cole it is a chance to merit starter's pay; for Heat it allows chance to see more of Napier.
Remember how the Bulls used to crush LeBron's Heat on the boards? Cavs 22, Bulls 12 in rebounding.
Hornets need to win Saturday. It's the start of a rough 4 games-in-five nights run -- at Knicks, at Pelicans, home vs. Heat.
Watching the intensity level in this game -- it feels like every game the Bulls played against the Heat for the last 4 years.
So have Heat fans actually found themselves these past two nights rooting for . . . the Knicks and Bulls?
Heat are listing Josh McRoberts (toe) as probable for Saturday's game against the 76ers in Philadelphia.
Joseph Harris, 6-5 guard out of Coastal Carolina, is lone player to make the Heat's D-League camp out of open tryouts in Sioux Falls/Miami.
Last yr Heat had fun Halloween at home|Bosh-“No offense to Philly, but there’s probably not as much to do. Probably just have a nice dinner"
Heat announce that Josh McRoberts (toe) practiced in full today. I believe that's his first one since signing.
I hated Spurs professionally. If I was a fan, I'd be indifferent. But the Heat? I was one of those dudes who'd fight fans in the stands!
Tuesday's 7:30 p.m. Heat-Rockets game at AmericanAirlines Arena has been added to NBA TV's national schedule (still Sun Sports in S. Fla.).
Heat fans with the King James ENNIS nickname. Lol.
Heat fans will always have tonight.
LeBron brought that Miami Heat mentality to the Cavs: Toy with the opponent, let them lead in the 4th, and then DESTROY THEM.
Fun fact. In 2010, the Cavs, without LeBron won their opener. The Heat with him, did not. And that week the Giants won the World Series.
Lebron should have stayed in Miami because the Heat won and the Cavs lost. My column:
Heat check alert. Butler with another jumper. 3-5 from 3.
JR wearing a heat pad for his back, which has been spasming on him in recent days.
Quite a day. Heat fans irritated at me. Had a Cavs fan tweet that he hoped I got jumped 2nite. And now the Beliebers are after me.
This monster really going up. I got heat in the rotation whoa
