  • ASK IRA: Should Napier continue as a Heat starter?

    ASK IRA: Should Napier continue as a Heat starter?
    Q: Do you think Erik Spoelstra should continue to start Shabazz Napier? I imagine it would be better from a development standpoint, and I don't see a lot of downside, as Norris Cole doesn't offer a lot more when starting anyway. What are your thoughts? --...
  • ASK IRA: Is it time to thin out Heat's roster?

    ASK IRA: Is it time to thin out Heat's roster?
    Q: Andre Dawkins, Justin Hamilton and Shabazz Napier all are just taking roster spots. Add Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole and Josh McRoberts because they are not making an impact this season. If no other team wants them, why should the Heat keep them? Better...
  • ASK IRA: Are Heat structurally flawed?

    ASK IRA: Are Heat structurally flawed?
    Q: How? -- (Asked in various forms by dozens to this forum). A: Because without Chris Bosh, this team has about zero margin of error. The reality is that without Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in the lineup together, the Heat are a lot closer to Kobe and...
  • Ira Winderman: No logic for Heat to tank

    Ira Winderman: No logic for Heat to tank
    First, the reality: NBA teams don't tank. At least not when it comes to the perception of playing to lose. Coaches coach to win; players play to win. Always. Example A was the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. Now, that...
  • Heat granted $2.65 million cap exception for McRoberts' injury

    Heat granted $2.65 million cap exception for McRoberts' injury
    For the first time since July, the Miami Heat have more than pocket change to spend on personnel. The NBA has granted the Heat a $2.65 million disabled-player salary-cap exception in the wake of forward Josh McRoberts undergoing knee surgery earlier...
  • ASK IRA: Do Heat blow it up or build it back up?

    ASK IRA: Do Heat blow it up or build it back up?
    Q: Is it more or less likely that they blow up the team now? -- Robert. A: There's really nothing to "blow up." Nobody is taking Josh McRoberts in his current state. And Luol Deng has an opt-out after this season, so teams could/would be reluctant...
  • ASK IRA: Is Greg Monroe a Heat option?

    ASK IRA: Is Greg Monroe a Heat option?
    Q: I'm seeing a lot of Greg Monroe-to-the-Heat rumors. Thoughts? -- Brian. A: Look, everyone knows Pat Riley covets true centers, has gone years without one. It is why there were those DeMarcus Cousins rumors in recent years and then the Brook Lopez...
  • Ira Winderman: Don't realign, just change playoff format

    Ira Winderman: Don't realign, just change playoff format
    Here's what you don't do amid the hubbub about the very real imbalance between the NBA's two conferences, with the West again pummeling the East this season: You don't realign. Because in two years Kevin Durant could be back home in Washington,...
  • Ira Winderman: LeBron has forfeited right for patience

    Ira Winderman: LeBron has forfeited right for patience
    By the end, the patience had run thin, razor thin. The patience with a teammate who wasn't there for 28 games during the regular season. The patience with a center who at times came up small. The patience for a coach who ran the same defensive...
  • ASK IRA: Could Granger help address Heat concerns?

    ASK IRA: Could Granger help address Heat concerns?
    Q: With Danny Granger coming back to the lineup soon, could you see him playing the four for long periods of time? His size and shot would really stretch the floor, like having LeBron James on the floor with Dwyane Wade handling the ball. I could see a...
  • Cleveland's Big Three should make Cavaliers No. 1 in East

    Cleveland's Big Three should make Cavaliers No. 1 in East
    Broderick Turner picks the East (in predicted order of finish) PLAYOFF-BOUND 1. Cleveland 2013-14 finish: 33-49. Coming: Coach David Blatt, LeBron James, Kevin Love, Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, Brendan Haywood, James Jones. Going: Coach Mike...
