After learning that Ray Allen was not interested in playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers IF he returned this season, it became more likely that he wouldn't be playing at all. Today, the man who LeBron recently passed on the all-time scoring list has announced that he won't be playing in the 2014-15 season.
"Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me," Allen said. "I’ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season."
Chris Bosh and his wife Adrienne had a baby girl last night, named Dylan Skye.
With the Heat playing his former team the Toronto Raptors, Bosh did not travel with the team as he was staying with his wife as the couple welcomed their second born baby into the world.
After baby Dylan was born, CB4 posted on Twitter about how elated he was, "I feel like I'm 10 ft. Tall right now! Very happy to welcome another child to the world! #proudfather #Boshfamily," and attached a photo of him holding his newborn.
On Tuesday night the Miami Heat received their 2013 NBA Championship rings, and lifted their championship banner in a pre-game ring ceremony. Members of the Heat weren't the only ones who were given a ring however, as Dwyane Wade surprised long time girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, with one of her own.
Tuesday was actually Union's 41st birthday, and D Wade stopped by her party at Hyde night club for a few minutes before taking off for Philadelphia with the team, and in that time he gave her a box which had her own Heat championship ring.
The Miami Heat started their season of right by receiving their championship rings, defeating an Eastern conference rival on a nationally televised game, and topping it all off with a Chris Bosh videobomb.
Speaking about his biggest rivals in the league today, LeBron James says there is no one individual rival for him.
Measuring the greatness of LeBron has shifted from putting him up against Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, and Paul Pierce, and is now about seeing how he stacks up against the all-time greatest players. Asked about who he considers his chief rival these days, James doesn't mention Derrick Rose in the East, or Durant out West, and says that he once considered Pierce his toughest rival when he was on his quest for his first championship.
To commemorate their second straight title, the Miami Heat will wear championship gold jerseys on opening night.
October 29th is the night the season opens, and the Heat gets things started against Eastern rival Chicago Bulls. This is also the night LeBron and company receive their rings for the franchise's third championship, and in honor of the event the team will be wearing special alternate jerseys and jackets.
The Miami Heat have been dropping behind the scenes videos on their Instagram page today, beginning with a look at LeBron James going insane in an industrial dungeon while working out. We also received a preview of alternate jerseys the Heat will be rocking this year. Most notable is the new red on red alternate jerseys. Miami has used red jerseys before, but with white lettering. These new red uniforms have red lettering, with only a hint of white outline.
Back in August I made a post titled "LeBron James Insane Off Season Workout Will Surprise You," which featured LeBron James pulling an off road vehicle with his bare hands. I'll admit, the title was a bit sensationalized to grab attention, but King James' actually "insane workout" is actually here now.
Want to see the defending champion, Miami Heat take on the Los Angeles Lakers this season in L.A.'s sole visit to American Airlines Arena? Well you better start playing the lottery, or working on a high profit yielding scam if you want to cop tickets.
Floyd Mayweather is a boxing icon who knows a thing or two about defending titles, and he's also a big fan of the Miami Heat. If you recall he partied with LeBron James in Las Vegas for a celebration following the Heat's back-to-back championship.
Chris Bosh is nearly as famous for his comical, and often ill-timed photos as he is for his All Star caliber game. A popular meme is how the former Toronto Raptors forward bears resemblance to an actual dinosaur.
Youtuber MkEliteWorksX put together an NBA 2K13 video which features Bosh playing as a dinosaur. Now, this is much bulkier than the real-life Heat big man, but it’s hilarious all the same.
Check out the video below to see Chris Boshm, The Dinosaur, balling in NBA2K.
Last night LeBron James and the Miami Heat won their second NBA Championship in a row and join elite company of franchises that have achieved such a feat. Nike had planned for this, and released an ad that featured Drake, Dr. Dre, Spike Lee, and a slew of other celebrity and basketball impresarios congratulating King James on his triumph.
If you are a Miami Heat detractor (or just a plain ol’ hater) then you’ll enjoy this. Around the league Heat fans are often snickered at for their “Bro Culture” wardrobes and affinity for wearing sunglasses indoors at NBA games, and are often labelled as bandwagoners. Last night as Tony Parker took over down the stretch in the fourth quarter, and LeBron was turning the ball over on consecutive possessions, fans wanting to “beat traffic” starting flocking out of the building in droves.
Tensions between the Thibodeau-led Chicago Bulls and the Miami heat have been high since LeBron joined the in the 2010-2011 season, which is the same season Thibs started as head coach and Derrick Rose matured into a bonafide superstar. Recently, Joakim Noah said on record that he "really hates the Heat," so we took some choice photos from the past five game series between the two teams to see just Why Joakim Noah Hates The Heat so much.
