Sammy Sosa is a HUGE Miami Heat fan. Well documented. So it might have been a surprise last night when Slammin’ wasn’t at American Airlines Arena for another LeBron debacle. Where was His Whiteness? Just hitting the red carpet at the Spanish People Magazine ’50 Most Beautiful People’ party. Still efforting to see why/how Sosa gets invites to such parties, but he’s in demand.
Is he any whiter than 2009? To our expert eye, no. But there are still those Twitter users who aren’t used to seeing that powder face on a daily basis. They remember Sammy looking like this.

MIAMI—Chris Bosh won’t be taking the floor for the remainder of his team’s series against the Pacers, but he's wholly convinced he is still an integral and valued member of the Heat and has assured the nursing staff at his rehab clinic that his teammates would definitely be by to see him before visiting hours conclude today.
“They’ll be here any moment,” Bosh...
MIAMI Chris Bosh is most appreciated when he doesn't play.
In March, the Miami big man missed three games and the Heat lost two, to Utah and the Lakers. That sparked a minor panic about Miami's lack of size.
Bosh soon returned and again was mostly forgotten about. The acclaim went to Heat perimeter stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Well, Bosh is out again. And, judging...
Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat have moved on from Game 3 when he had his public spat with coach Erik Spoelstra.
Following the team's practice Saturday, Wade chalked up his heated sideline exchange in the third quarter of a 94-75 blowout loss to the Indiana Pacers with Spoelstra as ''emotional and in the heat of the battle.'' Wade said it wasn't his first...
No one knows if Greg Oden will ever play in the NBA again. He hasn’t played since the 2009-2010 season and in a wide ranging Grantland piece he says he has decided to take next season off to rehab. If and when Oden is healthy, a few teams will undoubtedly step up to the plate to take a chance him.
As for Oden’s preference on landing spots, his agent Mike Conley Sr. says that...
For the last couple years, Miami Heat star Lebron James clutch time failures have been documented by the media and fans alike but this might be the first incident of an NBA player mocking Lebron.Check out Pacers forward Lance Stephenson give Lebron James the choking gesture after Lebron missed a technical free throw in the third quarter:How did Lebron get the technical foul shot...
We all know about the hype that comes with the Miami Heat's "Big 3" that includes Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. I have been one of the biggest critics of the "Big 3," calling them the "Big 2 and a really good role player." Bosh would be the role player in my eyes because I never thought he was that great when he was the man on the Toronto...
The Indiana Pacers won game three of their playoffs series with the Miami Heat giving them a 2-1 series lead.During a time out in the third quarter, Heat star Dwyane Wade got into an argument with head coach Eric Spoelstra which ESPN cameras caught for the viewing public:
Last night, a frustrated Dwyane Wade clearly shoved Darren Collison to the ground in transition, earning himself a flagrant 1 foul. Many people immediately compared it to the Jason Smith foul on Blake Griffin, which was called a Flagrant 2, and earned Smith a 2 game suspension.
Even though the plays are similar, the league saw fit to not only not upgrade Wade's foul...
MIAMI -- This does not sound like a winning formula. Miss 24 of 29 shots in one stretch, on the road. Watch an 11-point, second-half lead turn into a deficit. Have your entire team get outscored by two players in the fourth quarter. Somehow, it worked for the Indiana Pacers. And with one part of the Big Three gone, the Miami Heat might have a very big problem. Read more about this game, here.
I was able to join Justin Hull on "The Home Stretch" to chat about Chris Bosh's injury and how it impacts the Miami Heat, the possability of Indiana and Philadelphia playing in the Eastern Conference Finals, if anybody from the Eastern Conference can put up a fight in the NBA Finals, the Lakers looking rusty in Game 1 and the long-term impact of Derrick Rose's injury.
David West notched a double-double and would score the game winning bucket while the Indiana Pacers held the Miami Heat scoreless for the last 2:51 of the game, as Indiana held off the Heat in game two of their Eastern Conference semi-final series, winning the game 78-75 and knotting up the series at one game apiece. The victory for the Pacers took away Miami’s home-court advantage...
Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Pacers demolish Miami
This was a beat down. Pure and simple. Don't let the halftime tie fool you. The Pacers took control of this game in the second quarter after coming out strong and letting off the gas to go down nine after one quarter. They reversed that in the second...
