An Aussie In Miami – All Good Things….

Must come to an end. Apart from my Haberstroh fluff up, this was an unbelievable experience top to bottom, and one I’ll certainly never forget. Adios Miami.

An Aussie In Miami – The Heat vs. Bucks

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. GAME NOTES: * It was a 118-95 beat down by the Heat as they took their frustrations out on the hopeless Bucks. It got pretty wild there in the second half with the Heat putting on a clinic – it was Flying Death Machine at […]

An Aussie In Miami – The Heat vs. Celtics – The Shot

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. GAME NOTES: * By now, you know what happened – The Shot. You always had the impression that the Heat would put it this one away but the C’s just wouldn’t back down, and then, following a Dwyane Wade blunder at the free throw line, with […]

An Aussie In Miami – A Nice Gesture From LeBron

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, Livin’ the dream. I’ll get the Game Notes up tomorrow for the Heat vs. Celtics stunner (yep, I saw The Shot), but before I sign off tonight I just wanted to share this photo of LeBron post game. Pretty cool.

An Aussie In Miami – A Chat With Mario

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. At the Heat’s off-day practice on Friday I managed to get a few quick questions in to starting point guard Mario Chalmers.

An Aussie In Miami – The Heat vs. Clippers

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. GAME NOTES: * You probably saw the game/result so I won’t bore you with a recap. It was a good one though and it was great to see a vintage D-Wade performance in their 102-97 victory. He scored 11 of his game-high 29 points in […]

An Aussie In Miami – Got My Feet Wet

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. Here’s some snaps from my first visit to the American Airlines Arena today for the morning shootaround ahead of the big clash with the Clippers tonight. As you can see, I made my way on to centre court which was pretty cool. The shootaround wasn’t […]

An Aussie In Miami – The Journey/Arrival

7 nights, in Miami, covering the Heat, livin’ the dream. As any bloke with a couple of young kids (including a baby!) would know, to get the wife to sign off on a solo trip – to a place like Miami, no less – ain’t easy. Well, let me tell ya, it’s possible because here […]

Bogut lays the wood on DeAndre Jordan

Love it!
