Is Tolerance A One Way Street?

Tolerance.
By definition, it means “the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.”
The last part of the definition is very telling “…behavior that one does not necessarily agree with”. Read the rest of this entry »

Morgan Freeman Like You’ve Never Heard Him Before

Morgan Freeman has been on a roll the last few years, starring in some blockbuster movies like Olympus Has Fallen, Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, and most recently Lucy to name a few.

But in the last few years, he’s been making the rounds as a prolific voice over artist as well. When he visited Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, you knew Jimmy would have to do something with him and his voice, and here’s what he did.

Chris Bosh Puts Mansion Up For Sale

Relax. It’s not the one in Miami. Even though he has yet to officially sign his contract, we’re sure Miami is the place where Bosh wants to be. It’s the other multi million dollar mansion the Bosh’s own, and it’s in California.

At one time the Miami Heat’s new max superstar owned 2 of the top 5 most expensive mansions owned by NBA players. And technically he still does. But Bosh has decided that one mansion is enough, as he has put his Pacific Palisades pad up for grabs…for $14.5 milli.

Chris and the lovely Adrienne Bosh love Miami, and with him spending at least the next 5 years there and in between their travels of the world, it made sense for him to consolidate his real estate portfolio just a little.

He currently owns a 12,300-square-foot mansion in Miami Beach along with a 4,200-square-foot condo at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in Dallas and a pair of properties in Desoto, Texas.

Udonis Haslem Continues To Sacrifice, Re-signs with Miami Heat

Udonis Haslem has put so much aside to stay in Miami. He’s given up money. A lot of money. Not once. Not twice. And maybe not even three times.

He doesn’t get the attention that a Wade, Bosh get or Lebon did. He just show’s up to the gym and works hard. And what does he get for it? Usually a seat on the bench. Nevertheless, he does it all over again.

The Miami Heat can’t ever truly repay Udonis Haslem for all that he has given up for this franchise. I’m sure he can have his pick of a post career office job with the Heat, but for right now, he’s putting home and team above it all.

Miami, Udonis Haslem is your guy. Here’s how it went down.

Here’s how it breaks down via this guy who does this stuff for fun

Here’s the official statement from the Miami Heat
MIAMI, FL – The Miami HEAT announced today that they have re-signed forward Udonis Haslem. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Udonis Haslem has been a fixture in Miami over the last 11 years,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “He’s a team player, an encompassing all-purpose player, that would play just about any position or role in order to win. It’s been such a privilege and honor to have him with the organization and I’m so happy that he decided to come back.”

Haslem, a three-time NBA Champion, has played his entire 11-year NBA career with the HEAT, appearing in 715 regular season games (473 starts) averaging 8.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 28.0 minutes while shooting 49.5 percent from the field and 76 percent from the foul line. He became the HEAT’s all-time offensive rebound leader, surpassing Alonzo Mourning (1,505), on April 11 vs. Indiana. Additionally, Haslem was already Miami’s franchise leader in defensive and total rebounds, becoming the first non-drafted player in NBA history to be their team’s all-time rebounding leader. Among the HEAT’s all-time franchise leaders, he ranks first in total rebounds (5,332), defensive rebounds (3,821) and offensive rebounds (1,511), second in games played, games started, minutes played (19,987), third in double-doubles (130), fourth in double-figure points off the bench (70), sixth in field goals made (2,484), eighth in total points (6,127), ninth in free throws made (1,159) and 10th in steals (390) and blocked shots (231).

The Miami native appeared in 46 games (18 starts) with the HEAT last season, averaging 3.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 14.2 minutes while shooting 50.7 percent from the field, his sixth season shooting at least 50 percent from the floor. He served as a team captain for the seventh-straight year, tying Alonzo Mourning for the franchise mark. He finished second on the team in charges drawn (17) and blocked a career-tying three shots on January 18 at Charlotte. He also scored his 6,000th career point on December 28 at Portland and grabbed his 1,500th career offensive rebound on April 2 vs. Milwaukee.

Haslem, who along with Dwyane Wade, is only one of two players to have played on each of the HEAT’s three NBA Championship teams, has appeared in 138 postseason career games (84 starts) and averaged 5.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 22.5 minutes while shooting 47.9 percent from the field. Last season, he appeared in 16 postseason games (six starts) and averaged 2.5 points and 2.6 rebounds in 10.6 minutes of action while shooting 45.9 percent from the field. He helped lead Miami to a perfect 6-0 record in each of the games he started as the HEAT made their fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

Miami Heat Sign Shabazz Napier

MIAMI, FL – The Miami HEAT announced today that they have signed guard Shabazz Napier. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

“Shabazz is a proven winner and one of the most mature college players that I have ever met,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “Not only did he help lead UConn to two NCAA Championships, but he also knows exactly what he needs to do to make an impact at the NBA level. I believe the experience he had during the Summer League is going to payoff in leaps and bounds when training camp begins.”

 

Napier, a two-time NCAA Champion, appeared in 143 career games (98 starts) at the University of Connecticut and averaged 13.7 points, 4.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 1.76 steals and 32.3 minutes while shooting 41.1 percent from the field, 37.5 percent from three-point range and 81.3 percent from the foul line. He capped his collegiate career with 1,959 points and 646 assists, becoming the only player in school history to total at least 1,500 career points and 500 career assists. Among the Huskies all-time leaders, he finished first in games played and free throws made (509), second in steals (251) and three-point field goals made (260), third in assists and steals per game, fourth in points, 10th in free throw percentage and 11th in field goals made (595).

 

Last season at UConn, Napier appeared in 40 games (all starts) and averaged 18.0 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.83 steals and 35.1 minutes while shooting 42.9 percent from the field, 40.5 percent from three-point range and 87 percent from the foul line. He was named the 2014 American Athletic Conference Player of the Year and the 2014 Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year as well as being voted a member of both the All-Conference and AP All-American First Teams. Additionally, he earned both the Final Four and East Regional Most Outstanding Player honors while averaging 21.2 points during the NCAA tournament.

 

Napier was acquired by the HEAT in a draft night trade after being originally selected in the first round (24th overall) by the Charlotte Hornets in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Miami Heat Re-Sign Chris “Birdman” Andersen

MIAMI, FL – The Miami HEAT announced today that they have re-signed forward/center Chris Andersen. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

“Chris Andersen has had two great seasons with us and without him, we would not have been able to win the 2013 NBA Championship,” said HEAT President Pat Riley. “I’m happy he decided to come back and we’re looking forward to a great season from him in the power rotation.”

 

Andersen, a 12-year NBA veteran has appeared in 596 career NBA regular season games (10 starts) and averaged 5.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.53 blocks and 17.8 minutes while shooting 52.9 percent from the field. Last season, Andersen appeared in 72 regular season games with the HEAT and averaged 6.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.35 blocks and 19.4 minutes. He shot a career-high 64.4 percent from the field, after previously shooting a career-high 57.7 percent from the field in his first season with Miami in 2012-13. He also blocked six shots off the HEAT bench on March 9 at Chicago, tying the team single-game record for blocks by a reserve. Additionally, Andersen shot a perfect 7-of-7 off the bench on January 7 vs. New Orleans, tying the second-most made field goals without a miss by a HEAT reserve in franchise history. That effort also tied the best shooting performance of his career with his perfect 7-of-7 game vs. Washington on March 25, 2011.

 

Andersen has appeared in 38 postseason career games with the HEAT, spanning two seasons, and averaged 5.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.05 blocks and 16.3 minutes while shooting 69.3 percent from the field, helping Miami to consecutive NBA Finals appearances, including the 2013 NBA Championship.
