Fine way out of line
Someone please tell me Heat owner Micky Arison threw a punch during a game or at least used a slur toward an NBA referee. Five hundred thousand dollars? For words that likely offended no one?...

Thunder too talented
Thunder in six. If Chris Bosh were fully healthy, there might be an issue of overall talent. The Thunder simply come from too many directions with too many weapons.

Dwyane Wade says he plans to be more aggressive when his Miami Heat take on the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. He better be. There are 70-year-old nuns who are more aggressive than Wade was in the Heat's Game 1 loss at OKC...

Ask Kevin Durant
Here's the bigger question: Does Kevin Durant still want Scott Brooks to be the coach?

Come summertime, Baltimore is a city of snowball stands. So it's only natural that, as temperatures rise, Baltimore bars cool down their customers with spiked slushies.
If you don't have much of a sweet tooth, a frosty Boh will do the trick. But the rest...
