  • ASK IRA: Are concerns about Mario Chalmers overstated?

    ASK IRA: Are concerns about Mario Chalmers overstated?
    Q: Please Ira, please explain to me why Mario Chalmers continues to start for this team? What am I not seeing? He would be a backup on most teams and we need someone that can create, penetrate and finish more than ever at the point-guard spot. -- Patrick,...
  • Spoelstra has hammer in Heat retool

    Spoelstra has hammer in Heat retool
       There is, of course, no autonomy when Pat Riley sits in the double-wide office at the end of the hallway, the one with the water views hard by Biscayne Bay. But there is a bit of equity that can be built after four consecutive trips to the NBA Finals....
  • ASK IRA: Is Chris Bosh locked in as Heat's starting center?

    ASK IRA: Is Chris Bosh locked in as Heat's starting center?
    Q: I believe Chris Bosh's ability to be the go-to player the Heat need will depend on him playing power forward more consistently, where he excels. Any indications from this roster and potential signings that is a possibility? -- Jonathan, Miami. A: No....
  • Undrafted Duke guard Andre Dawkins added to Heat camp roster

    Undrafted Duke guard Andre Dawkins added to Heat camp roster
      The Miami Heat's Duke replenishment program continues.   In the wake of losing forward Shane Battier to retirement and ESPN's broadcast booth, the Heat have added a third former Blue Devil to their training-camp roster, with a recent workout by...
  • ASK IRA: Are trade rules hamstringing Heat?

    ASK IRA: Are trade rules hamstringing Heat?
    Q: What if Pat Riley had worked behind the scenes to orchestrate a trade involving something like Deng, Josh McRoberts and Chalmers for Kevin Love? -- Jason, Miami Lakes. A: OK, hopefully for the final time this offseason, let me again explain:...
  • ASK IRA: Why Shannon Brown for Heat?

    ASK IRA: Why Shannon Brown for Heat?
    Q: Hi Ira, Shannon Brown? He's not a rotation player, by any means. He's a decent defender, and a horrible shooter. He's a 10-day-contract type of player. The bizarre free-agent signings continue. I'm hoping we get Leandro Barbosa after the World Cup is...
  • ASK IRA: Is Wade still capable of setting a defensive example?

    ASK IRA: Is Wade still capable of setting a defensive example?
    Q: I know Leandro Barbosa and Jordan Crawford, if the Heat sign one or both, are capable of providing good offense in short bursts, but who is going to play better defense? -- Bryan, Mountain View, Calif. A: In the absence of a rim protector other...
  • Birdman cites loyalty for Heat return, wishes LeBron well

    Birdman cites loyalty for Heat return, wishes LeBron well
       Just as LeBron James cited going home as a reason for his free-agency return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chris Andersen said Saturday among the reasons he re-signed with the Miami Heat was because South Florida felt like home.    "It was definitely...
  • ASK IRA: Is this season the right time for Heat to play prospects?

    ASK IRA: Is this season the right time for Heat to play prospects?
    Q: Does it concern you how sometimes Erik Spoelstra doesn't play his entire hand? I would really like to see some of the younger guys play (i.e., Shabazz Napier and James Ennis), but sometimes Spo's minute distribution is a little tight. And from the...
  • ASK IRA: Better Heat roster: In 2010 before LeBron's arrival or now?

    ASK IRA: Better Heat roster: In 2010 before LeBron's arrival or now?
    Q: Ira, in your opinion do you believe the Heat have a better roster now than they did when they were facing LeBron James and the Cavaliers before he joined Miami? -- Stefano. A: That's an intriguing question, one that has to factor in that they still...
  • ASK IRA: Do Heat offseason expenditures add up?

    ASK IRA: Do Heat offseason expenditures add up?
    Q: Pat Riley is slowly killing the Miami Heat. First with the Chris Bosh max salary, then with Birdman's $10 million dollar, two-year year salary and then he signs Udonis Haslem to a two-year $5.6 million dollar deal! WOW! I could have built a better...

    'Got the game laced up': Boozer, NBA players lay up lyrics
    Music producer Shannon “Slam” Ridley remembers the day former Bull Carlos Boozer stepped into a downtown Chicago studio in early 2011 to lay down a rap track called “Winning Streak.” “He had on a walking cast. He had never...
