HEAT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Miami Heat News: Pat Riley and Heat Staff Scouting European Draft Prospects in Spain

Although the draft picks of the Miami Heat during the Pat Riley era have often resembled poker chips, the former three-time NBA championship coach with a disdain for drafting international players, is in Spain this weekend to scout a pair of highly-regarded European prospects. Riley took the surprising scouting trip along with Assistant General Manager Adam Simon and Vice President...

Could Hassan Whiteside be the next Alonzo Mourning?

The Miami Herald ran a story the other day that really captured my attention. “Pat Riley indicated the Heat shouldn’t go more than three or four possessions without getting the ball to Hassan Whiteside and Whiteside should have the mentality of Alonzo Mourning,”. “‘If Alonzo didn’t get a touch three or four times down the court, he would put his big hands around my neck...

Pat Riley, Heat scouts turn their attention to international scene for draft

There is still a non-zero chance that the Miami Heat will not have a first-round pick in the 2015 NBA draft. They won't know for sure until the lottery in a couple of weeks, when the 9 percent probability that Miami might have to send its pick to the Philadelphia 76ers will finally be put to rest. But the much more likely scenario has the Heat making the tenth overall selection this...

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Goran Dragic

One of the best penetrating guards in the NBA, Slovenian playmaker Goran Dragic is poised to become a cornerstone of the Miami Heat franchise this offseason.

Heat's Udonis Haslem, 'Birdman' Andersen go 'gator hunting in Florida swamps

There's just something off about Heat lifer Udonis Haslem taking down and bagging a gator. But the former Florida standout proudly displayed the spoils of his hunt with teammate Chris Andersen on his Instagram account, and the results were mighty fine, indeed. (Note: people who love animals, no matter how scaly, reptilian and dinosaur-like, should look away now.)As Sports Illustrated...

Udonis Haslem credits working out with NFL players for strong finish to season

It's almost a cliche how much Udonis Haslem represents the Miami Heat. He's the heart and soul of the team, despite rumors that Pat Riley has shopped Haslem over the years. His role with the team has seen a drastic reduction since he was an important part of the first title season of the LeBron James era, and he's seemingly taken it in stride.Yet when Chris Bosh was lost for the...

Miami Heat: How Will The 2015-16 Roster Look Next Season?

After concluding their 2014-15 season with both a losing record and a non-playoff appearance, one would expect the Miami Heat roster to look a lot different next season. We’re six months away from the beginning of the 2015-16 season, but it can’t come soon enough for Heat Nation. This past year was easily the most disappointing season for the franchise since the defending NBA...

Goran Dragic: Fifth Year Is 'Pretty Big' On Deal With Heat

Goran Dragic has said he will give the Miami Heat an edge when he becomes a free agent in July. Dragic will place value in the possible fifth season that the Heat can offer in a maximum contract. "It's pretty big," Dragic said of securing such a fifth season. "Because every player wants to sign as long as he can. Of course, my goal is to stay in that spot that I'm going to sign....

LeBron James responds to Pat Riley's supposed jab

Whether he was actually aware of it or not, LeBron James on Tuesday insisted that he had no idea that Pat Riley may have taken a subtle shot at him, instead insisting he has much bigger things to worry about right now.

Pat Riley seemingly takes shot at LeBron James

Miami Heat president Pat Riley held his final press conference of the year on Monday. Last year, the uncertain future of LeBron James was the most significant — if not only — topic of discussion. LeBron is no longer a member of the Heat, but it sure seems like Riley found a way to work...Read More

Where do the Miami Heat stand this offseason?

Ugh, what a terrible season. I’ve been a Miami Heat fan since I was in my mother’s womb and I have to say, this may have been the most depressing season in Miami’s history. Yes, more depressing than the first few years as an expansion franchise. More depressing than the constant first round playoff exits in the late 90s and early 2000s. This season has been even more depressing...

Miami Heat remain in prime lottery position at season’s end

The Miami Heat came into Wednesday’s regular season finale against the Philadelphia 76ers knowing it would be their last game in 2014-15. This is relatively unfamiliar territory for Miami, which will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08. It marks only the second time Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem will miss the playoffs in their twelve-year careers, and the first time...

Did the Heat Lose Their Best Player and Coach in LeBron James?

Sportsnaut Guest Post – Written by Robin Hill There is no tangible evidence that the best Miami Heat coach left town simultaneously along with their best player over the summer of 2014. However, as the Cavaliers continue their ascent  toward the playoffs, the Miami Heat show a painful descent into virtual irrelevance and non-participation in the 2015 NBA Playoffs. In all sports...

Heat finally failed this season, but in a way still succeeded

There are plenty of people on this green earth who coach and play sports. For these men and women, the DNA of athletic success is so deeply coded into the human organism that it’s a sin against nature to view any loss as “good.” Thus begins a counterintuitive examination of the most successful “bad season” in the 2015 NBA… especially since the New York Knicks...
