Erik Spoelstra has either the easiest or hardest coaching job in the NBA.
Here's why it could be the easiest: The Miami Heat coach has at least four potential Hall of Fame players in LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen on his roster, and perhaps the deepest bench in the league. He has Pat Riley as a mentor and an owner in Micky Arison who will happily spend with hopes of winning.
Here's why it could be the hardest: He knows anything less than a second straight NBA championship would mean failure.
So that's why, at this time of year, the dark circles under Spoelstra's eyes - a byproduct of not enough sleep - tend to reappear with regularity. He takes nothing for granted, preaches at his team to do the same, and simply wants no part of any conversation that might mention how he could be in line to do something that only seven coaches before him have done: lead a team to back-to-back NBA championships.
''There's a lot of coaches who could...

MIAMI It might take some work for Miami Heat fans to have a concern about a team that has won 41 of its past 43 games. If anything is to be found, its the health of guard Dwyane Wade.
But center Chris Bosh said Tuesday that Heat fans should not worry about Wade, who has been bothered by a sore right knee.
I dont think its anything to be concerned about, Bosh said. I think weve...
There’s some shadiness going on in Miami. For the second time in a month, a member of the Miami Heat’s home was broken into. This time Udonis Haslem was the victim. The attempted burglary took place on April 13th. Police were alerted after the security alarm went off at 9:47 PM.
Haslem returned home around 10:25 p.m., deputies said he was able to unlock the front door and open...
I thought Miami had the most loyal fans in the NBA? Why do people keep robbing their players home? First it was Chris Bosh and now Udonis Haslem.
Here are the details.
On Saturday, April 13, deputies were dispatched to Haslem’s home after a burglary alarm was triggered from his security company around 9:47 p.m., according to the police report.
According to the police report, in...
If you happen to ever face Miami Heat star LeBron James in a shooting contest, I think it will be a good idea to make sure that you set the terms in case you lose.
Recently, LeBron challenged teammates Mario Chalmers and Ray Allen to a game of “Around the World” after a Miami Heat practice.
Watch as Ray and Mario pay-up with twenty push-ups after losing to LeBron:
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade sat out Game 4 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks -- at the request of the club and teammate LeBron James. Since the Heat were able to pull off the sweep of the Bucks, Wade will now get at least five days of rest before Miami begins its second-round series against either the Brooklyn Nets or Chicago Bulls. No matter...
Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem's home in South Florida has been burglarized, although authorities say it's not clear if anything was taken.
According to a Broward Sheriff's Office report released Thursday, someone broke into the house April 13 by prying open a side garage door. Deputies responded after a home alarm activated, but no one was inside when they arrived...
Bad news if you are a Miami Heat fan or if you have Wade in your fantasy basketball playoff league, but Dwyane Wade is listed as day-to-day with a bum knee. The rest between rounds helped some, but he very well could be a game-time-decision for Game 1 in the second round. Stay tuned to FFLockerRoom as we will fill you in as the game approaches.

And here you have it, Shane Battier's 2013 NBA playoff mustache. It's in that awkward "tweener" stage right now, but rest assured, it will fit right in with the Super Troopers gang real soon.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of this list is that LeBron James isn’t in the top 10. You know what, perhaps it is the fact that two of the top 5 barely played this season. Or maybe it’s… well, you look below and see what jumps out at you. NBA’s Top 25 Paid Athletes 1. [...]
Alameen Murphy went as far as to call Stanford "the Miami Heat of college football." He's enthusiastic about his offer to play cornerback at The Farm in this Bootleg Radio interview.
