HoopsHype Miami Heat twitter
LeBron joked about wearing 2 long armbands 2nite to create entirely diff kind of uniform. (Couldn't b worse than what NBA has them wearing)
Wade didn't talk to media pregame, but still expected to play
Popovich,"I don't know what our record will be, what our position will be in the playoffs. I don't really care. I just want to be healthy."
LeBron hopes to have the mask off by next week.
LeBron says he is hoping to get out of mask next week
Is LeBron open to Paul George picking his brain over summer? "Absolutely."
LeBron says he is still not quite sure if we will get to Ilgauskas' ceremony Saturday
If you missed, the custom t-shirt @pg30_mia wore to shootaround today http://t.co/4WQzmkqG00
Greg Oden is active
Spoelstra says he's on board with LeBron going to Big Z's ceremony Saturday. Ron Rothstein also part of Heat contingent going.
So Diaw starts in place of Splitter and Spurs still will tell us Duncan isn't a center. Fine, Oden then will come off bench as a guard.
Boris Diaw to start in place of Tiago Splitter tonight against Heat, with Jeff Ayers out for Spurs.
Jeff Ayres (hand) out tonight. Did it in 3 on 3 drills yesterday.
Popovich says Leonard has been good since coming back. Wants him to be more aggressive.
Gregg Popovich says Diaw will start over Splitter. Is that a matchup thing? "No, we're just tricking the hell out of them."
Play has been delayed at WGC Cadillac Championship due to weather but they might try to resume later today.
Everyone practiced and is expected to play
Chris Bosh says he’s retiring when he’s 36. Got stuff to do.
Chris Andersen on his technical the other night: "I ain't stressing."
One reason for Bosh wanting to retire before that: "I've got kids who need attention. Everybody in my house is needy."
Chris Bosh reiterates what he has said before: that he admires Duncan but doesn't want to play until he's 38.
Best pace-adjusted point differential since Jan 1: Clippers +9.1, Rockets +7.0, Heat +6.8, Thunder +6.6, Raptors +5.7.
Scott Foster, Sean Corbin, Kevin Scott your referees for tonight's Heat-Spurs, 8 p.m., AT&T Center (Sun Sports, TNT).
Need to write a column when I finally get to hotel. Taking suggestions....
This has been a good day on Twitter. I feel a little like Sally Field. (Didn't want to reference a modern actor or actress...)
Powell picks up his fourth foul. Bill Walton: "History is being rewritten!"
Heat, Pacers tied in the loss column. Wade on Tuesday "We can't worry about, 'Oh they lost; we need to win.' We need to win every night."
Indiana loses in CHAR. Paul George 0/9. Heat tied in loss column, 1.5 back. Neither team can get No. 1 seed, bc 96 Bulls had better record.
LeBron named Eastern Conference Player of the Month for February despite not winning a Player of the Week award during the month.
LeBron James has been named East Player of Month. But he cannot accept b/c it is not best month in NBA history.
For the record, no disrespect to the late great Chamberlain. And I lived at his restaurant as a kid. Even broke my ankle on his court there.
Rockets-Heat had second-most viewers of any game in NBA Fan Night history. Second to Pacers-Heat. Amazing considering Wilt wasn't playing.
So tonight Paul George will either score 60 or 63 points vs. Bobcats to keep this trend going.
Dominique Wilkins says UM pitcher Javi Salas' perfect game is tainted because Villanova didn't play any offense.
The players and years change and U.S. Soccer's defense just keeps right on inducing fits of nausea.
Nothing is more consistent in international soccer than the U.S.'s embarrassing excuse for a defense.
That Javi Salas radio call by his little brother is pretty cool.
Stopped in Columbus, Texas, on the way to San Antonio. Nice town and great people.
It's when you stop enjoying it that you should move on. Sports = fun. Didn't know there was a meter on it. Over the top = worldwide leader.
I've spent the past 4 years trying to put into context & proportion what the family of networks twist & blow out of it. So, yes, priceless.
And that includes last night when the West cleaned up in all four games against the East.
Remember the historic East vs. West disparity? East has been .404 vs. West since Jan 1. Last season it was at .418.
LeBron missed. Kevin Durant is back atop the MVP race.
Clearest sign that LeBron was spent tonight... He was 9-of-9 from 2 feet and in. He was 0-for-9 outside of that.
LeBron just walked thru media room & banged on my keyboard to try 2 erase my column. Thursday, I will jump on court & try 2 block his shot.
Udonis Haslem knows Pat Beverley & likes/respects him. But did tell him tonight -- w/ all PB's talking to bench -- that "enough was enough."
Beasley: "I got yelled at for passing up a few shots in the first half." So he shot them in the second.
Wade on Pacers: "I didn't know they lost.... We can't worry about they lost, we need to win. We need to win every game."
LeBron said Heat was trying to get Allen on a flare or Beasley on final shot, but Rockets played both well. So he heaved it.
LeBron on his late third quarter shot: "Once the officials go over there, it seems like we never win that."
LeBron on Beasley: "I'm very proud of him."
