The Miami Heat didn’t get much production out of the center position. They would be happy with a guy who just plays defense and rebounds, as they have more than enough scorers on the roster right now. 29-year old Joel Anthony didn’t do much last year. He played in 75 games (11 starts) for the Heat last year and he averaged 19.5 minutes, 2.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 0.3 assists and 1.2 blocked shots per game. He has now played in 244 games (56 starts) in his first four years with the Heat and he is averaging 17.8 minutes, 2.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 0.3 assists and 1.3 blocked shots per game. 23-year old Dexter Pittman might get a real chance to earn some minutes for the Heat this year. He played in only 2 games (0 starts) for the Heat last year and he averaged 5.5 minutes, 1.0 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. If Pittman can get into good shape, he does have a solid upside.

The Miami Heat had just about the most to lose from the NBA lockout. Having one of the highest revenue teams in the NBA, Heat owner Mickey Arison avoids losing a sizable sum of money. More importantly to Heat fans, though, is the fact that Arison's trio of superstars will not be robbed a year of their prime due to the lockout.
As long as Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh...

With all the anticipation of the frenzied NBA free agency period, there are constant discussions about the Heat’s potential moves, some spoken in certainties and some completely hypothetical.
Yes, we’re over the whole NBA CBA BRI issue as much as the next guy.
Enough with the alphabet soup.
But the Taiwanese animation studio NMA, as they have throughout the process, has cut to the chase.
What happened in the lockout and where does the situation stand today?
This not only explains it, it probably will lead to royalty rights for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
