It has been less than twenty-four hours since the Miami Heat were crowned champions, and they are already favored to win the title again next year. Bovada has the Heat at 2-1 odds, with the Thunder behind them at 11-2. The Spurs, the finals runner-up, are listed at 17-2, the fourth best odds.
The Bobcats and Magic are the heaviest of underdogs with each team sporting 500-1 odds.
With Dwyane Wade not fully healthy nor looking like the player he used to be, and rumors of Chris Bosh being on his way out of town, now might be the time to place an early bet on another team to win it all. A couple of smart bets could be the Chicago Bulls at 15-2 or the Los Angeles Clippers at 18-1. The Bulls made an impressive, however short, run in the playoffs minus superstar Derrick Rose, and could be out for blood against the Heat next year. If the Clippers can hold onto Chris Paul, bring in Doc Rivers, and get some toughness with a guy like Kevin Garnett, they could quickly become a favorite to ...

NOT FOUR, NOT FIVE...
In honor of his third NBA championship, Dwyane Wade opened up his postgame press conference by announcing he has (another) new nickname. Just call him, “Three”. “My name is Three, not Dwyane.”
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has battled a lingering injury to his right knee throughout the season and into the playoffs that has hampered his ability to produce at his former level. Wade told reporters yesterday that he will now have to play through a banged up left knee after injuring it during Game 6, according to Kurt Helin of Pro Basketball Talk.Wade sustained the injury when...
South Florida basketball fans have taken flak for being apathetic when it comes to how they support the Miami Heat.
They show up late, they leave early, they are not loud enough, they only want to be “seen” that kind of thing.
When the Heat appeared to be choked out at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday, fans began to file out of American Airlines arena during the...
Ah yes, Chris Bosh. The gift that keeps on giving. Just recently he was mocked in a Taiwanese Animation Treatment of Game 7 of the NBA Finals due to his scoring-wise no-show in the big game. Heck, he was compared to an ostrich once, for goodness sakes. But there have been good times, too. Chris [...]The post Chris Bosh nearly chokes on piece of confetti during celebration (video...
We’ve all been there D-Wade, just most of us don’t have an NBA championship ring with our hangover. Dwayne Wade posted this photo at 2:45pm EST to let us all know that he is hurting the day after winning his 3rd NBA Championship. The cure – “Sun glasses and Advil.”

I unlike many, actually like Chris Bosh and acknowledge his vast contributions to the Miami Heat’s championship run these past two years.
So it pains me to this, but during the on-court celebration while the confetti was streaming down, the power forward was caught struggling a bit with a piece of confetti. Bosh just can’t seem to avoid these awkward moments.
Check it out...
One of the positives of the Miami Heat winning the 2013 NBA title, we get to see Chris Bosh celebrate the accomplishment.
It appears that Chris learned from last season’s victory and decided to don some protective eyewear before popping the champagne:
Also, check out the double-fisting action…

Poor, Chris Bosh!
Even when he’s trying to celebrate normally, a rogue piece of confetti decided find his mouth…

To start off, let me tell you that I am one of the biggest Dwyane Wade supporters on this planet. I defend his game tooth and nail with anyone that argues with me, and used to even argue that he was better than LeBron up until last season. While there is no doubting Dwyane Wade is a superstar, he is hurt, slow, and slumping, and for these five...
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade had worse knee problems than he ever made known during the playoffs. Wade revealed Saturday in an interview with the Associated Press that his right knee pained him so much that he was considering asking to play limited minutes in Game 7
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade revealed Saturday that his right knee
pained him so much that he contemplated asking to play limited
minutes in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, and that his
left knee was drained and required about eight hours of game-day
therapy just so he could play in Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
Miami Heat forward Juwan Howard, who has played in only seven games this season (zero in the postseason), made a nice behind the back one-handed half-court shot in practice as his team prepares for Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs.
Miami Heat Forward and Struthiomimus lookalike Chris Bosh called out non-believer, pessimistic Heat fans who abandoned them early in game six of the NBA Finals. He declined to invite them back for game seven.

MIAMI The Miami Heat will take the floor for more than just their season Thursday. Theyll play for three seasons.Whether the Heat win or lose in Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs at AmericanAirlines Arena, it figures to go down as a watershed moment in the era of the Big Three.Win and the Heat would have multiple titles, making the teaming of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris...
There's nothing more obnoxious than front running Heat fans, but it's helpful for all of us to know there are people that were actually legitimate fans of the team before Dwyane Wade came to town and LeBron James took his talents to South Beach. Let's allow Gonzalo Le Batard the opportunity to speak for those real Heat fans as he crazily calls out Charles Barkley and...
