    ASK IRA: Is 2016 truly Pat Riley's rebuild timetable?
    Q: Why would Pat Riley risk anything before 2016? This team isn't going anywhere and Riley has never played for second place. -- Jason. A: First, I think 2016 has been widely overstated. If Kevin Durant does goes anywhere, it likely would be back home...

    Ira Winderman: Riley addresses Heat's depth deficit

  • ASK IRA: Will Whiteside merely be a two-year rental for Heat?

    ASK IRA: Will Whiteside merely be a two-year rental for Heat?
    Q: In the wake of your article about Hassan Whiteside becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2016, I have to admit, I was blindsided by this news.  I assumed the Heat could sign him to a long-term contract before he hit the open market. Since it will be...
  • Heat to create solar plaza to enhance fan experience, energy efficiency

    The Miami Heat have built a reputation as a progressive franchise on more than Pat Riley's history of creative roster moves. Another example will become evident in the coming months as 24,000 square feet of underutilized space at AmericanAirlines...

    Friends as foes Tuesday: Erik Spoelstra vs. Stan Van Gundy

  • ASK IRA: Does Napier need more seasoning in D-League?

    ASK IRA: Does Napier need more seasoning in D-League?
    Q: I believe Shabazz Napier to be the worst starter in Heat history. I also believe Pat Riley needs to stop burdening Erik Spoelstra by having him on the roster. Anyone who has spent any time watching basketball can see he cannot compete on this level. He...
  • ASK IRA: Is Ennis, wing depth too lacking for Heat?

    ASK IRA: Is Ennis, wing depth too lacking for 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...
  • ASK IRA: Could current Heat mix be enough with only minor additions?

    ASK IRA: Could current Heat mix be enough with only minor additions?
    Q: Moving forward, even if he's not Anthony Davis, I'm convinced Hassan Whiteside will give the Heat what they need from the center position. With that said, point guard becomes the glaring position of need in the starting lineup.  I wrote to you before...
