  • 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...
  • Winderman's view: Heat 101, Cavaliers 91

    Winderman's view: Heat 101, Cavaliers 91
    Observations from Thursday night's 101-91 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers at AmericanAirlines Arena: -- That Heat-Cavaliers first-round series is going to be a doozy. -- By then, LeBron should be done remodeling his roster. -- This clearly...
  • Back in Miami, James still won't thank Heat fans

    The Sports Xchange By Walter Villa, The Sports Xchange Back in Miami, James still won't thank Heat fans MIAMI -- Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James still loves his former Heat teammates, but he declined the opportunity to thank the Miami fans who...
  • Stand up and make some good noise for LeBron

    Stand up and make some good noise for LeBron
    Not everyone will like my idea. But I would cheer for LeBron James when he's introduced on his return Thursday to AmericanAirlines Arena. I would cheer him like he was never cheered in the four years he played here. I would stand and applaud him for...
  • Ira Winderman: Honor LeBron, and then move on

    Ira Winderman: Honor LeBron, and then move on
    Yes, the Miami Heat are going to do it. Even after he turned his back on the franchise after four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals. Even after he gave every indication he would be returning as a free agent. Even after he defected from South Beach to...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • Ira Winderman: Heat haven't been whole, but already in a hole

    Ira Winderman: Heat haven't been whole, but already in a hole
    Can you give up on a team that hasn't been a team yet? In Sunday's 93-75 loss to the Chicago Bulls, the Miami Heat came out like a bunch strangers. Because they were. The starting lineup had played exactly two minutes together prior to the opening...
  • ASK IRA: Has Pat Riley put enough around Wade?

    ASK IRA: Has Pat Riley put enough around Wade?
    Q: Is Pat Riley wasting Dwyane Wade's two years on a whim of 2016, making Wade the Kobe Bryant of the East (aging superstars still at a high level) with the current roster? -- Nikki. A: Actually, that's a legitimate comparison, but not necessarily for...
  • Ira Winderman: Now that Heat can deal, should they?

    Ira Winderman: Now that Heat can deal, should they?
    Monday could be the start of something big in the NBA. Could be. By rule, most players signed as free agents in the offseason cannot be dealt for three months or before Dec. 15, whichever comes later. Dec. 15 comes Monday. And that will leave just...
  • ASK IRA: Is Deng the right fit with Wade and Bosh?

    ASK IRA: Is Deng the right fit with Wade and Bosh?
    Q: You have frequently mentioned that the Heat don't have tradable assets, but wouldn't there be interest in Luol Deng? He is a solid defender and role player, and would fit well with a contender like Houston looking to make a championship run. ...
