Ray Allen keeps getting asked about “the shot.” He’s not complaining, exactly. He thinks it was just as cool as a lot of Heat fans did.
In case you blocked it from your memory, the shot in question came with 5.2 seconds to go in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Heat were on the verge of being eliminated by the Spurs before a scrum for an offensive rebound ended with the ball in...

The Heat have told some player agents that they may carry only 13 players.
The Heat signed Justin Hamilton and Eric Griffin to non-guaranteed deals on Tuesday. Jarvis Varnado also is under a non-guaranteed contract.

Well, it turns out this 2005 Toyota commercial featuring Phil Jackson sort of predicted the whole thing.

Opinions vary, but in my opinion, I think Dwyane Wade along side Shaquille O’Neal, started the foundation for Miami’s legacy. The year of 2006 was the first NBA finals appearance by the Heat where...
