  • 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: 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: 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • ASK IRA: Is it time for Pat Riley to shake things up?

    ASK IRA: Is it time for Pat Riley to shake things up?
    Q: When does Pat Riley make a roster move? Obviously the roster as it stands isn't doing much. Is not making the playoffs really worth seeing this through? -- Jeremy. A: An interesting question on many levels. First, with the recent emergence of Luol...
  • Ira Winderman: Reimagining the Carmelo-Heat possibility

    Ira Winderman: Reimagining the Carmelo-Heat possibility
    "We were a little late to that party." -- Pat Riley, in late July, on the Miami Heat's free-agency pursuit of Carmelo Anthony. Of course they were. There were, after all, other priorities earlier that month, including what proved to be misguided...
  • ASK IRA: Do Heat flaws already need to be addressed?

    ASK IRA: Do Heat flaws already need to be addressed?
    Q: Clearly the Heat need help, when Dwyane Wade is out. There is just not enough depth. I don't expect Chris Bosh to stay in a slump, but the team can't hit a free throw to save their lives. I thought the James Ennis played well enough to give him more...
  • ASK IRA: Can Heat afford to wait on Bosh-McRoberts tandem?

    ASK IRA: Can Heat afford to wait on Bosh-McRoberts tandem?
    Q: Couldn't we start Udonis Haslem at the five for his rebounding and defense and move Chris Bosh back to the four? I think it would really help on the defensive end of the floor. I understand that Pat Riley wants to maximize our cap space for 2016, but...
