Apparently Mr. Threepeat wants to rebuild the Heat from the front office, not from behind the bench. Stan Van Gundy (Jeff's bro) is taking over.
Seems kind of unusual to do this just before the season begins, but hey, I don't have a bunch of NBA championship rings.
Of all the gizmos forced upon us by the modern world, is any more melancholy than the leaf blower? The device is manifestly useless. It blows leaves from one place to another, and then the wind blows them back again. -- Roger Ebert
Watching that movie was like watching a young child be repeatedly punched in the face.-- my friend Dave after watching Bad Boys II

I can tell you with no ego that this is my finest blade. If you should encounter God, God will be cut.-- Sonny Chiba in "Kill Bill: Volume 1"
I would gladly pay $10.00 to see a kangaroo kick the shit out of Jeff Jarrett.-- Bubblesthechimp
I was SHOCKED when I heard the news... Riley seemed so upbeat about this year, getting Lamar Odom (in large part because of Riley) and Dwyane Wade, plus we might have had a shot at the playoffs (it's the Eastern Conference, remember?). But... a week before the season begins? Wow...
Yo, it's me, it's me, it's (points to self) P-A-B!
Stan Van Gundy could be the greatest name in the NBA. The only problem is when I hear it I don't know what I picture first...80s rocker, infomercial guy, or late-night local screaming sports anchor. It sure isn't NBA head coach.
SI.com's making the obvious comparison to Sam Bowie. Which is all the more striking considering that Kevin Durant, selected right after him (as Michael Jordan was selected right after Bowie) already has a scoring title under his belt.
