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...
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...

First off, props to this kid’s mom for naming him Seventh. That is an awesome name.

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.
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.

But Pat Riley wants a lot more down the road.There is much uncertainty about what will happen with the Heat after a more punitive luxury tax enters the NBA next season and continues to escalate in future years and for when stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can opt out of their contracts in the...
Take a moment to introduce yourself to the smoke show that is the Miami Heat Dancers as the 2013 NBA Playoffs get underway.
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.

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...
