    Ray Allen Shoots Down the Celtics
The new Miami Heat star shows his stuff. 
The Miami Heat began the defense of their NBA championship on Tuesday night with a 120-107 victory over the Boston Celtics. The game also marked the first regular season game with the Heat for newcomer Ray Allen. The veteran shooting guard scored 19 points in 31 minutes against his former team.
Allen joined Miami as a free agent in the off-season after spending five seasons with Boston. The Heat defeated the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals and added insult to injury by signing Allen just weeks later. Allegedly upset after the Celtics attempted to trade him prior to last season’s trade deadline, Allen paid a visit to the Boston bench before Tuesday’s tip-off to exchange handshakes but was snubbed by former teammate Kevin Garnett.

    LeBron James is the Cure for Post-Superbowl Blues
Because football isn’t a year-round sport.
Much to the chagrin of Jim Harbaugh the NFL season came to a stunning and sudden end last week when the Baltimore Ravens held off the 49ers to claim victory in Super Bowl XLVII. The days following the game offered a whirlwind of revelry (Ravens’ Parade), late night television spots, debate, and complaints about officiating, but actual football games weren’t on the docket. What’s a sports fan to do now that football has ended, the NCAA tournament is a month away, and baseball is nothing but a tease with its sun drenched reports for the next six weeks?
There’s LeBron James.

    NBA Stories to Watch
The NBA season is getting underway and basketball fans can obsess over various storylines. Here’re a few I’ll be keeping tabs on this season.
Can Greg Oden and Michael Beasley contribute in Miami?
The defending champs haven’t had much in the way of cap space over the past three seasons. In the offseason Miami cut the oft-injured Mike Miller and made a pair of low-risk, potential high-reward signings. Beasley is a proven scorer who has traditionally preferred weed and tattoos to playing defense. After burning out in Minnesota and Phoenix, Beasley is back with the team that made him the #2 overall pick in the 2008 draft. Beasley should give coach Erik Spoelstra another big wing on the second unit and may even allow LeBron James and Dwyane Wade the chance to hit the bench simultaneously on occasion. If Beasley can steer clear of South Beach he could offer Miami a dynamic scorer off the bench to pair with Ray Allen.

    Spoelstra Puts Miami Heat on Cruise Control
NBA detractors point to the league’s abundance of playoff teams, lengthy regular season, and deem the first 82 games as nothing more than an extended pre-season. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has repeatedly drawn the ire of fans, media, and the league office for frequently sitting his star-studded trio of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili. Erik Spoelstra, coach of the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, has taken the Popovich plan to new heights this season.
Miami is currently second in the Eastern Conference standings, three and a half games behind the Indiana Pacers. Miami is comfortably ahead of the third place Atlanta Hawks. The East is so weak that only four teams are currently over .500, with Toronto just barely qualifying. The aforementioned Atlanta Hawks (22-20) would miss the playoffs entirely if they were in the Western Conference. All signs point to Miami and Indiana set on a collision course in the Eastern Conference finals. The series would be a rematch of last summer’s seven-game series that saw Miami prevail.

    Can Dwyane Wade Save the Miami Heat, Again?
It’s been four years since Dwyane Wade and Pat Riley lured LeBron James and Chris Bosh to South Beach. Following four NBA Finals appearances and two championships the “Big Three” is at a crossroads. After being run out of the gym by the San Antonio Spurs the Heat are at risk of losing James to free agency and dealing with the reality of Wade’s diminished abilities.

    The Fickle Fandom of a First Grader
As a Miami Heat fan since 1989, the team’s recent LeBron James-fueled run of success was tremendously entertaining. As my interest in the nearly unwatchable NFL waned over the past few years I found myself following more and more pro basketball. I passed the interest onto my kids with the help of the NBA’s Gametime app. My son and daughter, ages seven and four, know two things about basketball: 1) they root for the Heat and 2) LeBron James is the best player in the world.
Miami’s sad performance in this summer’s NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs brought an abrupt end to another rewarding season. I chalked up the failure to the Spurs’ hot shooting and the ineffectiveness of Dwyane Wade. There was reason for optimism as just last summer Manu Ginobili fell flat in the Finals only to bounce back 12 months later to exact his revenge. Why couldn’t Wade take the same path? I figured the team would be right back in contention next season just as soon as Wade, James, and Chris Bosh signed new long-term contracts.
