Re: 2012 Heat Media Day

Media Day day!

Watching an NBATV playback of the Finals. Cole has put on serious muscle since then, per the recent pics. I love how great our staff is at developing bodies, between he and Pitt this summer alone.

When the hell did LeBron get to Miami? He hasn't discussed it on twitter and there still isn't a shot/mention of him getting his ring sized.

Can't wait to see Garrett Temple in his Heat jersey!

Re: 2012 Heat Media Day

Hopefully the Heat put up a clip of Lebron getting fitted for his ring, like they did with Wade.

Lebron has been working with KD a lot this summer apparently, even after the Olympics in Akron.

Re: 2012 Heat Media Day



Dwyane Wade, on returning from arthroscopic knee surgery, "I will get stronger and stronger as the year goes on...
"For me it's all about how efficient can I be."

Tom Haberstroh ‏@tomhaberstroh
What is Dwyane Wade's injury status? He says even if it was the Finals, he wouldn't be able to play.

Dwyane Wade on the Lakers.
“You can’t say you’re shocked about the Lakers making a move,'' Wade said. "They’ve proven they’ve made big moves often. Steve Nash is probably the biggest shocker. They’ve put themselves in position to win a championship… it makes the league more competitive… They make you work harder.’’

Joseph Goodman ‏@MiamiHeraldHeat
D-Wade appears to be carrying more weight than last season before training camp. Understandable considering the surgery and book tour.

Dwyane Wade's goal for the season? "I want to get all my percentages up."

Tom Haberstroh ‏@tomhaberstroh
For all the sneakerheads out there, Dwyane Wade wearing Jordan today at the media day photo shoots.

Ethan J. Skolnick ‏@EthanJSkolnick
Chris Bosh says he did not try to bulk up. Spoelstra told him to play fast. "You can't play fast and add pounds. My advantage is quickness."

Chris Bosh's goal for the season, "My mid-range game. I just want to become more consistent, more efficient."

Tom Haberstroh ‏@tomhaberstroh
Bosh: "My advantage is my quickness against other 5s. I'm not going to bang down low, play like Shaq. Because I'm not."

Tim Reynolds ‏@ByTimReynolds
Bosh on playing the 5: "We messed around and won a championship. I messed myself over in that regard." (Yes, he's laughing.)

Tom Haberstroh ‏@tomhaberstroh
Chris Bosh: "I made my piece with it, I want to be one of the best 5s in the league."

Chris Bosh, on the Heat's position-less, free-flowing style, "Not only does it work, but it's a fun style to play."

Heat media day full of interesting nuggets. None funnier than Wade clowning LeBron for an apparent sun tan.

Re: 2012 Heat Media Day

Ethan Skolnick just said on 790 that Wade looks lighter, which is different than what Joseph Goodman said.

Pittman



Norris does look a bit more cut up

Shane Battier on Miami's position-less philosophy: "The new rumor is that Joel Anthony is our point guard."
