  • Dion Waiters on Kyrie Irving rumors: ‘There’s an alpha male’ in Miami already

    Waiters Island has repopulated so quickly!

    Where will Kyrie Irving end up? It’s the question that has been dominating the second half of the NBA offseason, ever since it was reported that Irving had requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The latest team name to appear in the ‘rumorsphere’ is the Miami Heat, who ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne mentioned on a recent Bleacher Report podcast.

  • Dion Waiters, Heat agree to a 4-year, $52 million deal, per report

    Waiters had the best season of his career in Miami last year, and now it looks like he’ll be back with them for a few more seasons.

    Dion Waiters and the Miami Heat have agreed to a four-year, $52 million deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

  • Don’t doubt Golden State: Warriors beat Kings 117-106

    Another “shaky” game ends up in another solid victory

    Ah, the emotions of being a sports fan. The Warriors came out and started the game with one of those first halves that has Warriors faithful sweating. And in the end, we wound up winning the game by double digits. Were you worried? I was, but only a little, and only until the 3rd quarter started.

  • Don’t freak out over Jimmy Butler declining the Wolves’ contract extension... at least not yet

    It’s exactly what he’s supposed to do.

    immy Butler set NBA — mainly Timberwolves — Twitter on fire when KSTP’s Darren Wolfson reported the All-Star wing declined a four-year, max contract extension in the $110 million range. And to the untrained eye, Friday’s news may be indication that Butler doesn’t want to re-sign in Minnesota after this season. But while that may end up being the case in the end, that’s not necessarily what this all means.

  • Dragic 'disappointed, sad' about Bosh news

    DORAL, Fla. — Goran Dragic got the word he was getting traded to Miami and didn't need long to start envisioning what it would be like to play alongside Chris Bosh.

    That was nearly two years ago.

    And they got a mere 44 games together.

    Getting ready to play without Bosh has become an unfortunate tradition in Dragic's tenure as point guard for the Heat. And with the team set to fly to the Bahamas on Monday for a training camp without not only Bosh but Dwyane Wade as well, Dragic knows his role with the Heat is about to expand in ways he likely could not have imagined.

    Officials are not giving Green the benefit of the doubt anymore.

  • Draymond Green gets ejected for freaking out, Warriors handle Kings anyway (109-86)

    After scoring only 47 points in the first half, Golden State goes for 43 points in the third quarter.

  • Draymond Green is still mad Kevin Hart tied him in a 3-point contest

    Draymond Green and Kevin Hart still have a feud going on. Green went on Conan on Tuesday, and O’Brien had to bring up Hart, seeing as how both of them have histories with the comedian. O’Brien noted that Hart loves to brag about his basketball skills, and Green’s first response was, “He suck.”

  • DURANT COMPLETES BIG 4 OF THE WARRIORS

    VANCOUVER, CANADA - Kevin Durant, 28,  joining the Golden State Warriors make the most powerful Big 4 of the NBA. The Cavs led by Lebron James can only boast of a Big 3 of him, Irving and Love but not as deep as the Warriors’ Big 4 namely, Curry, Thompson and Green.
