The Miami Heat Need To Start Rebuilding

As of January 14th, the Miami Heat are sitting at 14th in the Eastern Conference. I almost feel just as bad for Miami supporters who’ve stuck with it, even after Lebron James left.

With a pre-All-Star record of 18-39  the Suns sit 15th in the Western Conference, knowing that the opportunity to make necessary moves — was then and there.

Orlando Magic Benching Bismack Biyombo In Favor Of Nikola Vucevic

Bismack Biyombo was one of the most wanted free agents after his successful stint with the Toronto Raptors last season when he averaged career-highs of 8 rebounds and 5.5 points while also blocking 1.6 shots per game. Even more important than his statistics, Biyombo was a force coming off the bench, making many teams believe he could join their team as a…
