  • Hyde: Here's how Hassan Whiteside landed with Heat

    Q: Why do you think Erik Spoelstra doesn't give James Ennis minutes? -- Scott. A: First, it's not part of any plot, and when there are nights like Tuesday, when Luol Deng is out, there will be minutes. The reality is that Ennis is exactly what Pat Riley...

  • Ira Winderman: Either or neither when it comes to Wade, Bosh as All-Stars?

    The distinction between what coaches say and what they mean has long involved a considerable chasm, unless that coach is Gregg Popovich. So, for what it's worth, consider the words of Hornets coach Steve Clifford before Wednesday's game against the...
  • ASK IRA: Was Granger a risk without reward?

    ASK IRA: Was Granger a risk without reward?
    Q: Danny Granger? Any chance that we just waive him and eat the money? I'm still hoping we get rid of Justin Hamilton. We can use those spots for Khem Birch, Andray Blatche or anyone that can create his own shot (even if they don’t play defense). --...

    ASK IRA: Should (could) Heat push to trade for Reggie Jackson?
