BEST OF MAXIM
Even great shooters like Miami Heat guard Ray Allen need to practice their shot and before the start of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, Ray decided to take one of the tunnels of the AT&T Center to practice.

MIAMI – After scoring nine points on three 3-pointers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, Mike Miller admitted his limited minutes for the Miami Heat this season – and the past two years – have been difficult for him. Yet still, he is fresh at the most critical stage now and has the health to extend his NBA career.
“I feel I have four, five seasons left in me,” Miller...
SAN ANTONIO -- The assumption is Mike Miller will be an amnesty victim this summer. But just maybe the Miami Heat will decide once again to do what they essentially did following last years NBA Finals.Place Miller in storage. Then unpack him for the next Finals.One of the most vivid images of the 2012 Finals was Miller looking like the Kirk Gibson of basketball. Barely able to walk...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Moments after getting his championship ring on the night this NBA season opened last October, Mike Miller walked to midcourt, grabbed a microphone and addressed the delirious crowd.
"The journey that starts tonight is going to be even more challenging," Miller said.
At the time, Miller had no idea how prophetic those words would seem.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich told the media on Saturday, a day before Game 2 of the NBA Finals, to stop criticizing Miami Heat star LeBron James’ style of play. “He’s a grown man,” Spurs coach Gregg
Back with a blowout, and no, the Miami Heat didn't need LeBron James to do more.
Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else did everything right.
Chalmers led the charge and James broke out to finish it with a flurry as the Heat used a 33-5 run to blow away the San Antonio Spurs in a 103-84 victory Sunday night that evened the NBA Finals at one game apiece.
James missed 10...
Every so often I need to revisit some of the great players of recent times, just to remind myself how phenomenal these talents truly were. Guys like Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan and even the likes of youthful Grant Hill and Penny Hardaway are all worth remembering for the unusual talents they exhibited for us on the basketball court.
Allen Iverson was one of those players...
With their superstar struggling, the Heat's supporting cast came
through in a big way. Especially Mario Chalmers.
Some are using the Celtics' first round exit this year as proof that the window that was opened when the trades for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen were made is closed. With the window closed, they reason that it's time to blow the team up and begin the rebound. But maybe it would be wiser to wait one more season. Of course, that decision, as with everything else this off...
Greetings and happy Monday to all. First things first, it has been a while since I last wrote TMA (and other posts). Been really busy and tired as of late, so it is a refreshing thing to be able to write. Hopefully, I can make it up to everyone. The Heat and Spurs have battled to a draw in the past two games. Game 1 could have gone either way, but Tony Parker beat the clock. Game...
With 3:50 remaining in the third quarter of Game 2 between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, Spurs guard Danny Green had just pumped faked Heat forward LeBron James and went straight to the rim to score his 17th point of the night with an uncontested layup.
The Spurs led 62-61 over the Heat for a small moment; however, the following play by Mario Chalmers would ignite a Heat...
Where We’re At
The series is tied 1-1 after the first two games in Miami. We now move things to San Antonio for the next three games in the 2-3-2 format.
The Heat won game 2 103-84 after a strong game from both Mario Chalmers (19 pts) and Chris Bosh. Even though Danny Green (17 pts, 5-5 from beyond the arc) and Kawhi Leonard (9 pts, 14 rebs) had solid games, the big three of Parker...
