Q: Wouldn't you agree that Jose Calderon can be an upgrade over Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole, while providing solid 3-point shooting and playmaking. Not to mention that he and Chris Bosh had couple of good seasons together in Toronto back in the day, so...

Q: I'm sure I am not the only one who is tired of opening the Sun Sentinel every morning and seeing that there is absolutely no news or even rumors of a trade to help this roster. It really is frustrating being a Heat fan at this moment. I want to enjoy...

Since the Lakers' present isn't much, it's nice that there exists a heartwarming and inspirational story from their past.
Where there is history, there is hope.
The story is captured in a documentary film titled: "33STR8."
That was Bill Sharman's...

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...

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...

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...

Q: Ira, the Heat and Bulls should work out a deal so Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose play together, that way when one takes a day off the other can play. -- Harvey.
A: If Wade's situation grows as muddled at Rose's in Chicago, then the Heat are in major...

"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...

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...

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...

Continuing what has become somewhat of an annual event for the Miami Heat president and Lakers coaching great, Pat Riley has listed two beachfront homes in Malibu for lease at $18,500 a month and $16,500 a month.
Offered furnished, the bungalow-style...
