ZINGUS! Christian Hernandez, Jack Alfonso and Giancarlo Navas rave about that kid on the Knicks (Tingis-Pingis) and Giancarlo is surprised that Kyle O’Quinn is black. The guys go through the advanced metrics when talking about Whiteside, and of course, when he ran away from Kristaps Porzingis like a track star.
We discuss the Miami’s 116-109 win over the Kings. Jack Alfonso’s well-written satire piece on Mario Chalmers being the worst trade in sports of all-time. How Gianni faked his way into becoming a Heat fan just to make friends in school. What life will be like #WithoutWade whenever he decides to retire, plus all our favorite Dwyane Wade moments.
Love him or hate him, Almario Vernard Chalmers is one of the most polarizing players to ever put on a Heat jersey. Here’s five thoughts on what this trade means for the Heat going forward, as we bid our farewells.
What we’re witnessing is something we couldn’t have fathomed 10 months ago. Tyler Johnson has all the tools — both athleticism and basketball savviness — to be the long-term replacement for the franchise’s greatest player.
Tonight could be the final time that Dwyane Wade and Kobe Bryant play NBA basketball in Miami. The two are all-time greats, and not just the “you were really good and fun to watch” kind of great. They were the kind of great that shaped modern basketball.
Justise Winslow is a 6’7”, 220-plus pound defender who’s already seen five NBA games and the likes of LeBron James, James Harden Andrew Wiggins and Kyle Korver—four proven shooters and paint-penetrators.
In this episode of The Heat Beat Podcast, we delve into the Gerald Green situation that took place Wednesday morning and wonder what’s at stake for his future. We discuss the Heat’s first four games from Week 1 of the NBA season & Brian makes his triumphant full-time return with many new gadgets & sound bites.
I have a confession to make . . . I fired Erik Spoelstra Sunday evening. It was at some point during the first half where something named a Marcus Thornton hit another jump shot, and I had seen enough.
What the fan base in Miami never gets credit for is how mentally insane they can be. Yeah, they show up late and leave early at times, but they care. A lot. And with this crazed fandom comes expectations. Expectations that could be unreasonable and oftentimes overhyped.
Welcome to the newly redesigned MiamiHeatBeat.com. In this podcast, we take you behind the scenes on how this project became a reality. We also preview the Miami Heat’s 2015-16 season with Jack Alfonso and Harrison Cytryn.
To quantify how reformed this year’s Heat project to be, I generated a prognosis of Miami’s 2015-16 roster using an average of Real Plus-Minus values from the past two seasons. Here’s a glance at how the new-look Heat could quickly rise from lottery team to Eastern Conference contenders.
