Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 22 points on 9-13 shooting tonight, along with 10 rebounds. He also guarded the reigning MVP, and on the play above, drew a charge on LeBron. Charlotte couldn’t pull off the upset, but they have to feel good about the future - especially since MKG is so young, he can’t even legally drink until September.

Ladies and gentlemen, the least inspiring mascot in the history of the NBA, if not all sports combined. It’s an albino who is also a furry who is also a nightmare. He’s even wearing an unattractive jersey! And, like many of the human players on the Heat, he’s also wearing pants underneath his basketball shorts. If this abomination is on the court all the time, it suddenly makes sense why Heat fans arrive late to playoff games and leave early.

White on white crime! Josh McRoberts puts the Birdman on a poster - that is, if anyone would ever manufacture, sell, or buy a Josh McRoberts poster.

LeBron James gets hit in the face by Serge Ibaka, still finishes the dunk, and then immediately collapses to the floor. At 0:29 in, you can hear a great example of what Reggie Miller brings to a basketball telecast: 

LeBron has been down for twenty seconds, laying on the ground, and there’s a growing puddle of blood under his head. The astute Miller muses, “You’re wondering, did he take a shot from Serge Ibaka?” The alternative being that LeBron’s face was so excited about the dunk, it spontaneously started gushing blood, I guess. Later Miller added, “You’re wondering, is the team that scores the most points going to win this game?” and “Hey, remember when Diane von Furstenberg’s son hired a plane to tell me to stop pursuing married women?”

Greg Oden played eight minutes, scored six points, and pulled in two rebounds tonight in Miami’s loss to the Wizards. And all of his body parts stayed attached the whole time!

We established a uniform progression program in 2009 where we laid out for the next few years a series of uniforms we’d introduce to complete the traditional uniforms. We use them to create stories and as a brand-building and retail opportunity.

"You would always put him in his room, and then we’d lock the door, and then we’d put the dogs out, and then we’d lock the front door. Well, he found out how to unlock doors, unlocked his door, went downstairs, let the dogs in the house and opened the front door. About an hour later we got a call from our neighbors, saying, ‘Your monkey is riding your dogs around the neighborhood.’…I said, ‘C’mon y’all, y’all got to get in the house.’"
- Two-time NBA champion Mike Miller, talking about his pet monkey. Maybe this is why Justin Bieber loves the Heat so much.
