Miami Heat Could Trade Michael Beasley this Summer

There is a fairly strong chance that not a single one of those finishing five will be back with the Heat next fall when this soon-to-be-over series will be a distant, distasteful memory.

Yes, even Beasley -- the second overall pick of the 2008 draft.

What you may have missed on the eve of this series was a quote from Heat president Pat Riley that he seeks to build a dynasty this summer when Miami will have somewhere in the area of $24 million, as things stand now, to spend in free agency.

And as well as Dwyane Wade's supporting cast played Friday night in a gut-wrenching 100-98 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round series, it remains a supporting cast too anemic to be part of what Riley has planned for the future. Richardson, Wright and Haslem are on expiring contracts, and Chalmers' contract has a team option.

Dwyane Wade: ‘I’m tired of answering questions about Beasley’

Michael Beasley has scored 19 points through the first two games of Miami's first round series against Boston and Dwyane Wade is tired of answering questions about it.
 
"I'm tired of answering questions about Beasley not doing this, not doing that," Wade said. "It's on Michael."
 
Beasley was the second overall pick in 2008 and is undoubtedly a talented scorer.
 
"It's going to click one day," Wade said of Beasley, as the Heat looked ahead to Friday's Game 3 at AmericanAirlines Arena. "Hopefully, it's Game 3. He has the ability to really make us a tough team to play."

The NBA’s 50 Worst Tattoos

You wouldn't believe the number of inky abominations etched into the pelts of pro ballers.  I'd originally planned a simple list of the league's ten worst tats, but when my dishonourable mention section hit double digits I realised I'd need to expand the scope of the project a little.  Even when I elongated the list to twenty-five terrible tattoos, I still found that I had to exclude some real atrocities.  In the end it took a full fifty spots to showcase the shittiest skin art in the L.

10. Kobe Bryant's "Vanessa" Tattoo

So, to recap, Kobe's biceps is adorned with a crown, butterflies, angel wings, Vanessa's hair and Vanessa's name.  I can't help but feel he could have saved some space by simply stamping the word "Sorry!" on his arm and calling it quits.
