That NBA Lottery Pick:
For those of you who missed the first game in the Miami-Milwaukee series, allow me to bestow upon you a gem-of-a-put-back-dunk by the infamously eccentric Miami power forward known to most as simply the “Birdman” (aka Chris Andersen).
After officially signing to a remainder of the season deal with Miami in February of this year, Andersen has proven himself with the Heat to be a rebounding force and, true to his nickname, he occasionally throws down a hammer-jam that is reminiscent of his days with the Denver (where he finished 3rd in the 2004 dunk contest).
The following highlight from tonight’s Miami-Milwaukee matchup is a prime example of vintage Birdman––enjoy the epic slam and the hilarious commentary by TNT’s Kevin Harlan.

MIAMI Shane Battier knows exactly how LeBron James was looked upon a year ago. He even provided a demonstration.
The Miami Heat forward cocked his head to the right. Then he halfway closed his right eye.
People were skeptical and sort of gave him the hairy eyeball, Battier said.
Research turned up that Battier was uttering an expression that means to look at somebody disapprovingly...
The Miami Heat are widely considered to be favorites to win back-to-back NBA titles this season. There are very few people — the players included — who believe the Milwaukee Bucks have a chance to pull off a first-round upset. Dwyane Wade, for one, does not seem too concerned.
The NY Post’s Page Six reported over the weekend that Wade prepared for Game 1 against the Bucks...
Even though the NBA playoffs started this weekend, the basketball topic getting the most publicity right now is 14-year-old Seventh Woods’ mixtape. Woods is a 6’1” freshman guard from Columbia, South Carolina.
First off, props to this kid’s mom for naming him Seventh. That is an awesome name.
Secondly, this kid is an elite athlete. I mean top-notch. And this kid is only a...
The Miami Heat are potentially set up for a dynasty with the likes of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh in the fold. But with each player possessing the option to opt out after next season, the question has always been whether or not the Heat would be able to keep all 3 down the road. With the potential luxury tax penalties for teams over the salary cap, keeping this...
After the Miami Heat’s game one victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James wore a bizarre sweater to the post game press conference. I guess if you’re the best basketball player in the world you can do stuff like this, but it can’t be recommended. I hope his teammates gave him a lot of grief for wearing this hideous thing.
Miami Heat forward Shane Battier had a superstition to drink one Bud Light before every one of the team's 27 consecutive wins, so Bud Light hooked him up with a truckload of free beer, literally.
LeBron James put on his finest party sweater for the post-game press conference following the Miami Heat's Game 1 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
What happened: The Miami Heat led from start to finish in a routine 110-87 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference first-round series Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
It looked as if the Heat would blow the Bucks into the ocean right away while jumping out to a 21-8 lead. The Bucks did close to within 26-24 at the end of the first quarter before...
Tweet The Miami Heat signed Chris “Birdman” Andersen during the regular season to help bolster their thin frontcourt. Birdman fit right into the mix, providing the team with energy, rebounding and toughness, all staples of his play throughout his career. Now Birdman is providing highlights from Miami’s first round series against the Bucks with these [...]
MIAMI If anybody has an idea, please drop it in the Milwaukee Bucks suggestion box.
With perhaps just a week left in his tenure as Bucks coach, Jim Boylan is looking for any way he can find to slow down LeBron James at least a little. After watching the Miami Heat star have a near triple-double Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, all Boylan could do was throw his hands up....
TNT’s Kevin Harlan had a moment to remember during Game 1 of the Milwaukee Bucks-Miami Heat series on Sunday night. After Chris Anderson’s third quarter put-back dunk, Harland got a little wild on the call. ”Ohhh here comes the Birdman. Flapping his wings and soaring for a sweet flush,” Harland was quoted as saying. Harland then followed it up with, “When you’re aerodynamically de...
LeBron James got the 2013 NBA Playoffs going in the right direction for the Miami Heat with this massive dunk against the Milwaukee Bucks.

It’s playoff time and we should take a look at who the best coaches in the Association really are.
5. Erik Spoelstra, Miami Heat: Yes, Coach Spo has one of the most talented rosters in the NBA, but the man deserves a lot of credit for his success with the Heat since 2008. Since Spo was named head coach, the Heat have gone 260-134, making the playoffs in...
