  • Riley expects Heat to compete among elite (The SportsXchange)

    Miami Heat president Pat Riley was surprised that LeBron James left but is moving on and expects the team to be competitive going forward. "I went into it with the notion he was coming back, so I was selling that to players," Riley said during a conference call. James announced earlier this month that he was leaving Miami after four seasons to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat won two NBA titles and reached the NBA Finals each of the four years that the superstar forward was part of the team.

    Kyrie Irving is excited about playing with LeBron James with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's also focusing squarely on the task at hand with USA Basketball. ''Right now the most important thing is that we're representing the United States,'' Irving said Wednesday after the U.S. team's practice. ''It's all about trying to win a gold medal.'' The 22-year-old Australian-American is one of 10 pure guards at the national team's training camp hoping to land a spot on the 12-man roster.

  • Riley speaks out, insists Heat will be competitive (The Associated Press)

    One of the last things Miami Heat President Pat Riley told LeBron James before free agency began this summer was that he would be selling potential players on the notion of playing alongside a four-time NBA MVP. Riley made that revelation Wednesday, shortly after the Heat completed the signing of Chris Bosh to a $118 million, five-year contract and essentially wrapped up their roster-rebuilding project for next season, the first of the post-LeBron era in Miami. The Heat have 12 players locked in for next season, Bosh and Dwyane Wade foremost among them, and Riley expects the four-time defending Eastern Conference champions to compete once again this coming year. James is now back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that he left for Miami in 2010, four trips to the NBA Finals and two championships ago.

  • Bosh officially re-signs with the Heat (Reuters)

    (Reuters) - The Miami Heat on Wednesday officially confirmed the re-signing of nine-time All-Star forward Chris Bosh, nearly three weeks after the move had been reported by multiple media outlets. Bosh had opted out of his previous deal to become a free agent but decided to stay in Miami after the departure of fellow free agent LeBron James, who returned to his home state of Ohio by signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this month. "Chris Bosh is a two-time NBA champion and one of the most versatile big men in the league," Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. "His unique skill set makes him one of the best players in the game today." Bosh, 30, averaged 16.2 points and 6.6 rebounds for the Heat last season and, with James and Dwyane Wade, was a member of the team's so-called 'Big Three' who won two NBA titles together.
