Miami Heat Make Great Changes to Front Office, Coaching Staff

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced this past Saturday that former Miami Heat players Juwan Howard and Tim Hardaway will now hold positions in the front office for the two-time defending NBA champs.

Howard, who only played three seasons with the Heat and had the pleasure of riding the “Big Three’s” coattails all the way to the Finals, will now hold the position of assistant coach, as Miami chases it’s three-peat this upcoming season. Howard, who played a very minimal role with the Heat, averaged 2.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 92 games with the team.

Former Heat star point guard Hardaway will hold the position of scout/community and corporate liaison. Unlike his “Fab Five” star, Hardaway played a much bigger role on the Heat roster, and even made the Eastern Conference Finals in the 96-97 season, only to lose to some guy named Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls. Hardaway averaged 17 points, almost eight assists and 3.2 rebounds in his six seasons spent with Miami.

I think it’s great that Heat president Pat Riley and CEO Nick Arison have so much respect for these former stars and have brought them on board to help Miami in chasing their quest of becoming a dynasty.

As both Howard and Hardaway have a combined 32 years of experience in the NBA, and nine of those were with the Heat franchise, it seems inevitable that they will have a long-lasting relationship with the team. But will these players’ on-the-court expertise transfer to their off-the-court actions? Only time will tell.

Dwyane Wade Makes Brooklyn Nets Look Foolish

You gotta give the Brooklyn Nets credit: Despite looking incredibly foolish at times in front of their home crowd, they competed against the Miami Heat on Tuesday night and only lost by four points. That said, you wouldn't know it from this epic clip of Dwyane Wade dribbling circles around multiple Nets and ultimately hitting a stellar fadeaway jumper.

Gerald Green Throws Down Monstrous Slam On Nets

Gerald Green hasn't been the most consistent player throughout the early stages of his young career, but there's no denying his overwhelming athleticism. Against the floundering Brooklyn Nets this evening, Green showcased some of those said abilities by emphatically throwing down a monstrous dunk, and he caught some major air in the process. If he's ever able to learn how to do it night-in and night out, Green is going to be an All-Star one day.

Harden, Wade Ice Game For Their Team in Final Min

Two of the best shooting (if not the two best) guards in the game both put their clutch gene on display last night. Within a few minutes of each other, Dwyane Wade and then James Harden both hit step-back jumpers in the final minute of the 4th quarter that iced the game for their team.
