At this point, it could just be a matter of "if" Greg Oden plays in the NBA again, rather than "when" he'll return. But if the former No. 1 overall pick's rehab goes as planned, he might have his sights set on South Beach.

The Heat are reportedly among those options the 24-year-old big man will explore. "Greg has...

Heat's offense suffers without Bosh in Game 2

MIAMI Chris Bosh is most appreciated when he doesn't play. In March, the Miami big man missed three games and the Heat lost two, to Utah and the Lakers. That sparked a minor panic about Miami's lack of size. Bosh soon returned and again was mostly forgotten about. The acclaim went to Heat perimeter stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Well, Bosh is out again. And, judging...

Dwyane Wade gets no punishment for flattening Darren Collison

Last night, a frustrated Dwyane Wade clearly shoved Darren Collison to the ground in transition, earning himself a flagrant 1 foul. Many people immediately compared it to the Jason Smith foul on Blake Griffin, which was called a Flagrant 2, and earned Smith a 2 game suspension. Even though the plays are similar, the league saw fit to not only not upgrade Wade's foul to a Flagrant...

POTD 5/15/12: Dahntay Jones on Shane Battier

Shane Battier got dunked on, but Dwyane Wade is the man who really got humiliated here.  No disrespect to Dahntay Jones, but he’s one of those guys who makes his coach nervous when he puts the ball on the floor.  On this particular play, however, he was able to freeze D-Wade with basic hesitation move before exploding past him for the easy finish. Don’t worry, Dwyane.  Kobe...
