Udonis Haslem says that he's no longer considering a mayoral run in Miami someday. "Not much faith in politics right now."

Greg Oden first played against Al Jefferson as a 14-year-old. Says Jefferson was 1 of guys who reached out to him when he had his setbacks.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Greg Oden asked about role in playoffs. Smiles. "I know it. I don't have to tell it, but I know it."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra says there is no minutes restriction for Wade. "I'm going to read his body language."

Ethan J. Skolnick

The Spo-ism of the spring: "Help us win. Just be ready when your number is called."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Spoelstra declines to reveal lineup for tomorrow. Only question would be Haslem (likely) or Oden.

Craig Sager is good people, always talking about his family. He should be in all of our prayers and thoughts. Good luck to a good guy.

Craig Sager, "A dramatic turn has matched me with acute myeloid leukemia. From sidelines to being sidelined, 40 veins and 40 electrolytes."

WADE: “I think a lot of people overlooked the [East], especially these guys that were at the lower end, because they started off slow."

Playoff picks: IND in 6, MIA in 5, TOR in 7, CHI in 7; SAS in 5, OKC in 6, LAC in 6, HOU in 5.

Somehow Heat practice devolved into a "let's dog the 2013 Milwaukee Bucks" news conference. These Bobcats are not those Bucks, apparently.

Joseph Goodman

Spoelstra said LeBron put in some “non-pounding conditioning” behind the scenes during his rest week. #NoPounding

Joseph Goodman

SPOELSTRA: “We happen to be as healthy now as we have been in a long time, but that doesn’t guarantee us anything." #NoGuarantees

Joseph Goodman

SPOELSTRA: “Nothing about the postseason is ideal. The only thing that is ideal is if you’re in the postseason.” #spoisms

Best Wade has felt? “I don’t really care to answer that question. I’m just going to go play, and hopefully my play shows you.”

Joseph Goodman

Wade's thoughts on playing playoff team owned by Jordan: "Nothing. Unless he's putting on a jersey, we're not really focusing on him."

Shandel Richardson

Spo on LeBron's week of rest: "A lot of the minor things he was dealing with are a lot better right now."

Heat lost draft tiebreaker drawings to both Rockets and Trail Blazers and now will draft No. 26. They could have picked as high as No. 24.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Miami loses tiebreakers w/ Houston & Portland, so the Heat will pick 26th (rather than 24th or 25th) in the upcoming draft

Still consider this to be Jordan's most remarkable team-related stat: in his 6 title seasons, Bulls were 18-0 in first round. No mercy.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Tonight's stats dive produced a # that I didn't know: LeBron is 2 championship runs away from passing Jordan in playoff wins... by one.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Biggest thing LeBron can clean up in playoffs: "bad pass" turnovers. According to BB-Ref, he had 152 this season, most of NBA career.
