The Miami Heat apparently extended an invitation to presumed LeBron James and/or Heat fan Matthew Bellamy (not the brother of Bill), the perpetuator of the controversial Heat Jersey-Gate at a Cleveland Indians game, and then decided to un-invite him shortly after word got out. (The Cleveland-area blog see fit to call him a "jackass" for the crime of wearing a Heat jersey, just so you know.) Allegedly, the Heat were going to fly him out to Miami for the Saturday game against the New Jersey Nets and also to meet the team. Once Bellamy broke the news on Facebook, Heat management quickly moved to quash the trip. He probably should have kept his mouth shut about the whole trip beforehand but if he was the shy-type none of this would have happened anyway.
The Chicago Bulls are backing off on their interest in former Heat player Patrick Beverley.
After Argentine center Fabricio Oberto's unexpected and sudden retirement, the Blazers will work out former Heat players Sean Marks, Shavlik Randolph and Earl Barron (among others) to replace him. I don't know about you but if I'm taller than 6'-10" and the Blazers want me to play for them, I'd think long and hard as to whether I want to beat the "Blazer Big Man" curse before I sign on the dotted line.
