Miami Heat: How Will The 2015-16 Roster Look Next Season?

After concluding their 2014-15 season with both a losing record and a non-playoff appearance, one would expect the Miami Heat roster to look a lot different next season. We’re six months away from the beginning of the 2015-16 season, but it can’t come soon enough for Heat Nation. This past year was easily the most disappointing season for the franchise since the defending NBA...

NBA Draft Prospects Who Could Be in a Miami Heat Uniform Next Season

Now that the season is over, it’s time for the Miami Heat to look ahead toward the 2015 NBA draft. It’s still not 100 percent certain that the Heat will have a draft pick in this year’s draft, but it’s pretty much set in stone. Miami has a top ten protected pick, meaning that as long as the Heat finish in the top ten in the draft lottery, the team will have a pick in the...

Heat's Goran Dragic: Fifth year on contract 'pretty big' consideration

Point guard Goran Dragic just offered up a bit of sweet music for the Heat front office's ears.As poorly as things went for the Heat in 2014-15, losing out on Dragic in free agency would be the ultimate catastrophe in the post-LeBron James era. Fortunately for Miami, it sounds as if Dragic is leaning toward coming back to the Heat -- and the financial considerations certainly point...

Hassan Whiteside's contract situation could be a big problem for Heat

In averaging 11.8 points, 10 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game, Hassan Whiteside showed that he's a big part of the Miami Heat's future moving forward. Whiteside seems like the kind of center a team absolutely needs in today's NBA. He can destroy opponents on the pick and roll and, on the other side of the court, blow up a team's primary actions by patrolling the paint.But as problematic...

Five Three-Point Shooters the Miami Heat Should Target This Offseason

The years of being able to depend on the three-point shooting of Ray Allen and Shane Battier are over for the Miami Heat. They ranked 24th in the NBA this past season, shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc, making about seven of their 20 attempts each night. While Tyler Johnson and Shabazz Napier both shot about 35 percent from behind the line, the Heat didn’t have one player in...

Goran Dragic: Fifth Year Is 'Pretty Big' On Deal With Heat

Goran Dragic has said he will give the Miami Heat an edge when he becomes a free agent in July. Dragic will place value in the possible fifth season that the Heat can offer in a maximum contract.

LeBron Never Told Heat To Draft Shabazz Napier

LeBron James never told the Miami Heat directly he wanted them to draft Shabazz Napier last June.

Pat Riley 'at peace' with LeBron James leaving the Heat

Breakups are hard. When you lose what you once considered the best person in the world, the days and months following can be a difficult time. Such was the case when LeBron James, the greatest NBA player since Michael Jordan, elected to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, leaving the Miami Heat after four Finals appearances and two championships. According to Joseph Goodman of the Miami...

Where do the Miami Heat stand this offseason?

Ugh, what a terrible season. I’ve been a Miami Heat fan since I was in my mother’s womb and I have to say, this may have been the most depressing season in Miami’s history. Yes, more depressing than the first few years as an expansion franchise. More depressing than the constant first round playoff exits in the late 90s and early 2000s. This season has been even more depressing...

Miami Heat remain in prime lottery position at season’s end

The Miami Heat came into Wednesday’s regular season finale against the Philadelphia 76ers knowing it would be their last game in 2014-15. This is relatively unfamiliar territory for Miami, which will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08. It marks only the second time Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem will miss the playoffs in their twelve-year careers, and the first time...

Did the Heat Lose Their Best Player and Coach in LeBron James?

Sportsnaut Guest Post – Written by Robin Hill There is no tangible evidence that the best Miami Heat coach left town simultaneously along with their best player over the summer of 2014. However, as the Cavaliers continue their ascent  toward the playoffs, the Miami Heat show a painful descent into virtual irrelevance and non-participation in the 2015 NBA Playoffs. In all sports...

Heat finally failed this season, but in a way still succeeded

There are plenty of people on this green earth who coach and play sports. For these men and women, the DNA of athletic success is so deeply coded into the human organism that it’s a sin against nature to view any loss as “good.” Thus begins a counterintuitive examination of the most successful “bad season” in the 2015 NBA… especially since the New York Knicks...

Miami Heat belatedly celebrate Chris Bosh's birthday with a little beer pong

Although his birthday was actually on March 24, Chris Bosh wasn't able to celebrate the occasion properly at the time, likely as a result of his recuperation from the blood clots on his lung. But last night, the Miami Heat gathered to fete Bosh. Dwyane Wade was ready for the party -- and wanted to let everyone know that he'd be arriving in style. And when the party got started, NBA...
