    Pat Riley sees value in Heat's late additions

    ASK IRA: Are too many Heat big men shooting jumpers?
    Q: I am reading that Udonis Haslem is practicing his 3-pointer, Birdman is working on developing his perimeter jumper, and Mario Chalmers will get time at shooting guard. Please wake me from my Heat nightmare! -- Stone, Miami. A: First, exhale. Udonis...

  • Backup role nothing new for Heat's Shannon Brown

    Shannon Brown is no stranger to the role. Far from it. So forgive him if he confidently snaps back to a question asking if he's ready to fill the position as backup to Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade. Not a problem, says Brown. He's done it before, and...
