  • ASK IRA: Does Whiteside deserve more of a look?

    ASK IRA: Does Whiteside deserve more of a look?
    Q: Tough loss Friday, but the silver lining is the upside of Hassan Whiteside. -- John. A: I agree that it is nice to have young, active length. Chris Andersen does what he can, but you can see that he is limited, and starting minutes are a stretch at...
  • Heat's Hassan Whiteside appreciative of opportunity

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside appreciative of opportunity
    All Hassan Whiteside could think about was the alternative. There was a chance he could have been earning a living thousands of miles away Friday night instead of at AmericanAirlines Arena. It almost happened before the opportunity of a lifetime...
  • Heat's Mario Chalmers back in starting lineup for now

    Heat's Mario Chalmers back in starting lineup for now
    Heat guard Mario Chalmers found himself in a familiar position Friday night. He was back in the starting lineup, and it appears he could remain there until the Heat injury problems are under control. Coach Erik Spoelstra said he will stick the same...
  • ASK IRA: Is Chalmers a starter by merit or default?

    ASK IRA: Is Chalmers a starter by merit or default?
    Q: To me, Mario Chalmers is a magician: He has a good game once every five or so and then disappears, poof! He shoots an occasional three, misses a ton of shots, very inconsistent and poof he is a starter! How does he do it? -- Stone, Miami. A:...
  • Shorthanded Heat down Celtics in absences of Wade, Bosh

    Shorthanded Heat down Celtics in absences of Wade, Bosh
    They are the three words in the same sentence that make Miami Heat fans cringe: Wade. Knee. Sidelined. Sunday, for the first time this season, that was the case, with Dwyane Wade sidelined against the Boston Celtics at AmericanAirlines Arena due to a...
  • Winderman's view: Heat 100, Celtics 84

    Winderman's view: Heat 100, Celtics 84
    Observations from Sunday night's 100-84 victory over the Boston Celtics at AmericanAirlines Arena: -- No Dwyane Wade, no Chris Bosh . . . no worries? -- Not exactly. -- But the Celtics were the right team at the right time. -- Just like the...
  • ASK IRA: Has Ennis emerged as Heat's top rookie?

    ASK IRA: Has Ennis emerged as Heat's top rookie?
    Q: Ira, I like James Ennis' energy. And now he's playing more under control. -- Chet. A: I don't know if he's necessarily more under control, nor if that is something the Heat are looking for. What makes Ennis unique among Heat players is his motor. And...
  • Ira Winderman: Finally, something in support for Heat

    Ira Winderman: Finally, something in support for Heat
    This was a reality check, and for more than the lineup Erik Spoelstra had to cobble together Sunday at AmericanAirlines Arena. For the first time in more than a year, the Miami Heat featured a lineup with no Wade, no Bosh, no LeBron. It was, to say...
  • Winderman's view: 76ers 91, Heat 87

    Winderman's view: 76ers 91, Heat 87
    Observations from Tuesday night's 91-87 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at AmericanAirlines Arena: -- Absurd that it came to this. -- You don't go up 23 in the third quarter against the league's worst team and then stop. -- And not having Chris...
  • ASK IRA: Is it time to move past LeBron?

    ASK IRA: Is it time to move past LeBron?
    Q: Ira, ENOUGH. Read your Twitter comments. No one wants to keep reading about LeBron James. He's gone. You and your newspaper have to get over it. -- Kevin, Miami. A: Agreed. But this is different, this is special, his first visit back. There still...
  • 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...
