Miami Heat


Many freshmen in college don't go into their first day of class with a resume that includes an Olympic Gold Medal, numerous NBA awards, and millions of dollars. But, that's the case for a new Florida International University freshman, Amar'e Stoudemire.

Downtown Miami hosted a historic event Monday night: Dwyane Wade played his very last home game for the Miami Heat at the American Airlines Arena.

The 37-year-old shooting guard announced last year that he would retire from the NBA at the end of the 2018-19 season. 

Despite the rain, fans from all walks of life did not mind waiting in line Monday. They overflowed into the streets beginning at 4 p.m. (tip off time was 7:30 p.m.).

Dwyane Wade looked into the camera, stood alone in the middle of a darkened room and talked for 10 minutes. He struggled with his words at times, unable to control his emotions. He wept.

And finally, he made what he called the hardest decision of his life.

One more year.

The Miami Heat Charitable Fund, Carnival Corporation and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation said Thursday they are giving up to $10 million in Hurricane Irma relief efforts across Florida and the Caribbean.

The pledge starts with an immediate $2.5 million donation by the Arison family to Direct Relief, UNICEF and the United Way of Miami-Dade County. Carnival Foundation and the Heat Charitable Fund are each pledging to raise a combined $5 million, and the Arison Foundation will match those efforts up to $5 million in total.

This week the Miami Heat waived Chris Bosh due to medical reasons. It's likely that his playing days are over.


Dwyane Wade is leaving. After 13 years with the Miami Heat, Wade is leaving the only NBA team he has known. He’s leaving, like LeBron James did two years ago, to return home. In Wade’s case, he’s headed to the Chicago Bulls -- a team he grew up with as a kid in the southern suburbs of that city.

Chicago is a city I spent almost 15 years in before moving to South Florida. Like Wade, I know both places well. They are both special places for those of us lucky to have lived and love them both.

  Miami is the Magic City.

Loyalty is something you hear a lot about in mobster movies and television shows. But as ruthless as someone like Tony Soprano can be, it pales in comparison to the ruthlessness and ego-laden industry which is professional sports.

The NBA’s free agency period starts Friday and the fate of the face of The Miami Heat, star player Dwyane Wade, hangs in the balance.



The Miami Heat’s President Pat Riley has his eyes on one player in particular during this year’s free agency period, that’s what Miami Herald sports columnist Greg Cote believes.


“The elite player that Pat Riley refers to as a whale. They’re whale hunting, The Heat. So, if they can get Kevin Durant, that takes priority over everything,” Cote said.
