(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer When Chris Andersen does something particularly impressive for the Miami Heat, a heavy metal guitar riff blares through their arena. Some children have shown up for games with replicas of his tattoos drawn upon their bodies. Others have gotten their hair gelled and shaped to match his Mohawk `do.
His style is unmistakable.
His numbers are pretty eye-catching as well.
With a career that once looked like it would be inevitably cut short by his own mistakes, and in a season that started with him out of the NBA completely, Andersen has emerged into a huge piece of what the Miami Heat hope is a second straight championship puzzle.

''He's perfect,'' Heat guard Dwyane Wade said.

In a new issue of Jet magazine, Dwyane Wade talks about being a great dad but a bad husband. The animosity between Dwyane and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade has been well documented. He shared how he ended up with full custody and what he’s looking forward to in the future.
“I didn’t set out to get full custody but I wasn’t able to see my kids the way I wanted and I’m not...
Um, that’s a serious endorsement.
Dwyane Wade has a deal with Gatorade, and apparently that deal includes massive amounts of Gatorade. How massive? Well, so massive that he has a refrigerator stocked with all flavors of the drink — hundreds of bottles’ worth — in his house.
Wade is also, by his account, giving away a lot of that Gatorade to his children, which would be a...

He's absolutely correct. Advantage, Indiana.
Over the first two games of these Eastern Conference finals in Miami, it was Indiana that...
