  1. Sideline view: Pacers and Heat

    J.A. Adande

    Here are some sights, sounds (I still can't get "Just The Way You Are" out of my head) and notes from my two days in Miami to work the sidelines for the Pacers vs. the Heat for ESPN's game broadcast. The Indiana Pacers' three victories so far migh...

  2. 2013-14 schedule about more than Heat

    J.A. Adande

    Let's take the newly released NBA schedule as a challenge. Can we get through the regular season without making it all about the Miami Heat? They have carried the season storyline ever since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh assembled in th...

    J.A. Adande

    MIAMI -- Now that the San Antonio Spurs are in the NBA Finals, we're seeing the side benefit of Gregg Popovich's strategic star-resting program: It has the backups well prepared for this moment. While the Miami Heat seem to falter whenever LeBron ...

  4. A Chris-mas Story

    J.A. Adande

    There were two successful reclamations displayed at Staples Center, and while the Lakers' five-game winning streak is noteworthy, the Clippers' 14-game run is historic. The Lakers had stalled coming off the line and needed to be jump-started. Ultima...

  5. The league will never be level

    J.A. Adande

    When it comes to sports the first thing you need to realize is competitive balance is a fallacy, because you can't balance competitive nature. Some are willing to do more to win, whether it means spending more money or playing for less. Mikhail Pr...

  6. Juwan Howard: The Fab-age Patch

    J.A. Adande

    The best part of today's Miami Heat championship celebration (you know, the one where they actually had a championship to celebrate) was Juwan Howard's teammates leaning on him to break out the Cabbage Patch dance (at the 1:25 mark of this video). ...

  7. Dealing with the Spurs

    J.A. Adande

    Every time the San Antonio Spurs get this deep into the playoffs it turns into a referendum on NBA fans. You've seen the columns before and you'll surely see them again during the course of the Western Conference finals: The Spurs represent what's ri...

  8. Magic's best way to keep Dwight? Try to trade him

    J.A. Adande

    As the Dwight Howard saga took one last lap along the curvy road course, with a declaration to of his intent to sign off on a return to Orlando for the final year of his contract (backed up by a source who has spoken to Howard), it turned ...

  9. No trade noise from Nash

    J.A. Adande

    Amid all the NBA noise, there is conspicuous silence emanating from the Arizona desert. That sound you don't hear is Steve Nash, not asking for a trade. Maybe it's a cultural thing for the guy who referred to himself as "the Canadian Jeremy Lin" ...

  10. Conference call: Realign NBA like the NHL

    J.A. Adande

    Since the NBA was ready to follow the NHL down the sinkhole of a lost season in pursuit of a hard salary cap, perhaps it might want to try to copy the NHL and boldly realign the league. It would make regular-season travel easier, make the TV schedule...

  11. Finally, the real fight

    J.A. Adande

    After 133 days of the lockout, we finally got a clear vision of what the union is fighting for ... even if it took NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver to articulate it. "In order for us to have the competitive balance we want, it restricts player ...

  12. Bron, Barkley and boundaries

    J.A. Adande

    By now you know about LeBron James' message to the haters. All it did was stir up more hatred. After the Heat's demise at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks LeBron was asked what he thought of the people who reveled in his defeat. "All the peopl...

  13. Heat: Where is the lob?

    J.A. Adande

    One reason I'm in favor of giving Dwyane Wade a chance to handle the ball at the end of close games for the Miami Heat is that he's really good at getting the ball to LeBron James. We've seen Wade throw a Tom Brady-like alley-oop to LeBron that trave...

  14. Off-color Shaq

    J.A. Adande

    It's not that Shaquille O'Neal walked onto the Staples Center court in a different uniform. That's something he's done while wearing Miami Heat black and red, Phoenix Suns purple and orange and Cleveland Cavaliers wine and gold. But those sights were...

  15. LeBron's Summer of Wrong

    J.A. Adande

    LeBron James is lucky this is the NBA, not "Gladiator," because he clearly has lost the crowd. Every move he's made this summer has turned against him. The latest example was the reaction to the tweet he sent out Tuesday evening, the one that said...

    J.A. Adande

    No, I don't know where LeBron James is going to play next season. In the past week I've been asked that question in online chats. I've been asked on air. I've been asked off the air, by everyone from make-up women to chefs. I even was asked about Le...
