  • Two kidneys, two lives changed, including Zo's

    Two kidneys, two lives changed, including Zo's
        Alonzo Mourning will carry a part of Jason Cooper into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday, when the former Miami Heat center is inducted in Springfield, Mass.     That will make it more than a basketball story.     But from a storyteller's...
  • ASK IRA: Will Erik Spoelstra dare consider youth?

    ASK IRA: Will Erik Spoelstra dare consider youth?
    Q: This season promises to be an exciting one for the Heat with returning players taking on a different set of responsibilities and the new additions looking to get minutes. As you pointed out, the chemistry of this year's team is unknown. The Andre...
  • ASK IRA: Should Heat consider Hasheem Thabeet?

    ASK IRA: Should Heat consider Hasheem Thabeet?
    Q: Ira, all week you've been talking about the Heat lacking a rim protector and that's why the defense needs to be better. So what about Hasheem Thabeet now that he's going to be released by Philly? -- Thad. A: There is a reason Thabeet has bounced from...
  • Miami Heat sign veteran guard Shannon Brown

    Miami Heat sign veteran guard Shannon Brown
      The Miami Heat added veteran depth to their backcourt Wednesday with the signing of free-agent guard Shannon Brown.   Brown, who turns 29 on Nov. 29, recently was released by the New York Knicks.   The Heat will be the fourth team for the 6-foot-4...
  • ASK IRA: Why Shannon Brown for Heat?

    ASK IRA: Why Shannon Brown for Heat?
    Q: Hi Ira, Shannon Brown? He's not a rotation player, by any means. He's a decent defender, and a horrible shooter. He's a 10-day-contract type of player. The bizarre free-agent signings continue. I'm hoping we get Leandro Barbosa after the World Cup is...
  • ASK IRA: Is Heat depth still lacking?

    ASK IRA: Is Heat depth still lacking?
    Q: All of your arguments with signings like Shannon Brown are followed by "if" Dwyane Wade is healthy or "if" Danny Granger is back. I agree with that. However, this team should not be going forward like this. It's too risky. We need a better backup for...
  • ASK IRA: What is a reasonable number of games for Wade?

    ASK IRA: What is a reasonable number of games for Wade?
    Q: Like you point out, fewer than 10 players will get meaningful minutes during the season and only 13 can suit up for a game. With up to 20 candidates before the final cut to 15, some very difficult decisions have to be made on who to keep. Twenty-nine...
  • Beasley's number appears up (again) with Heat

    Beasley's number appears up (again) with Heat
       The last time the Miami Heat gave away Michael Beasley's number they at least waited a year before issuing No. 30 to Norris Cole.    This time, the transaction took place within a matter of weeks, with Beasley's No. 8 already assigned to newcomer...
  • ASK IRA: Better Heat roster: In 2010 before LeBron's arrival or now?

    ASK IRA: Better Heat roster: In 2010 before LeBron's arrival or now?
    Q: Ira, in your opinion do you believe the Heat have a better roster now than they did when they were facing LeBron James and the Cavaliers before he joined Miami? -- Stefano. A: That's an intriguing question, one that has to factor in that they still...
  • ASK IRA: Is this season the right time for Heat to play prospects?

    ASK IRA: Is this season the right time for Heat to play prospects?
    Q: Does it concern you how sometimes Erik Spoelstra doesn't play his entire hand? I would really like to see some of the younger guys play (i.e., Shabazz Napier and James Ennis), but sometimes Spo's minute distribution is a little tight. And from the...
