Miami Heat insider podcast hosted by Ethan Skolnick with Alphonse Sidney, Alex Toledo and other guests. The new NBA flagship of the Five Reasons Sports Network.
Miami Heat: Does DeMar DeRozan fit?
You'd think that a former All-Star, who just had one of his best statistical seasons, would be appealing to Miami Heat fans. But many don't think he's a fit, if the San Antonio Spurs decide to move him this offseason.
Ethan Skolnick, Greg Sylvander and Nekias Duncan (of BasketballNews.com) discuss whether this is a reasonable option in a trade, what it would take, and how he would work with Jimmy Butler and others on the Heat.

Miami Heat offseason: A J-Rich reunion?
Miami has an eye on new whales in 2021, but could it bring in an old face sooner?
Josh Richardson didn't love his Philadelphia experience, and the 76ers may be looking to move money. Richardson wasn't ideal as a first option for the Heat, but as a third or fourth or fifth who can defend guards, a real team weakness?
Ethan Skolnick, Alex Toledo and Nekias Duncan (BasketballNews.com) discuss the idea from all sides -- and make some other suggestions of defensive guards who could come cheaper.

Miami Heat #FloorsYours: James Harden? (NSFW debate)
Ethan, Alf, Alex and Greg take to the YouTube stream and debate some of the potential free agents and trade targets for the Miami Heat, including James Harden (?!) and Christian Wood, who is completely unfamiliar to Alf.

Miami Heat: Giannis, Bam, Contention Timeline
As the NBA still decides on its offseason transaction schedule, Ethan, Alf and Greg discuss one of the key things to watch:
Does Bam Adebayo ask to sign an extension now?
If so, that has ramifications on the pursuit of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Should the Heat budge if so? How does Giannis' agent come into play? And, in general, should the Heat act like a team that just reached the NBA Finals, or is earlier in its process?

Miami Heat: Does Victor Oladipo make sense?
As attention turns to the Miami Heat offseason, one possible, attainable target is Victor Oladipo, who doesn't seem happy with the Indiana Pacers.
Does he make sense as a one-year option for the Heat? Is he totally healthy? What should the Heat give up? What should they hold back?
Ethan and Alex discuss.

NBA Finals Game 6: Lakers Beat Heat, Win Title
It's finally over, after nearly a full year.
The Miami Heat ran out of gas in Game 6, falling behind by more than 30 against Finals MVP LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Rajon Rondo (yes, him) and the Los Angeles Lakers. And so one of the more memorable seasons in Heat history is finally over.
Ethan Skolnick, Greg Sylvander and Alex Toledo jumped on Five on the Floor with about four minutes remaining, to capture the mood of the final Finals game, and recognize the Lakers' achievement.

Amazing Heat Podcast
Amazing content & go heat!! (Ethan pls don’t go back to Orlando)
Love the show
Love this show! I’ve been a listener for a couple years now. If I had one criticism of the show it is that Ethan is such a smart guy and great basketball mind, but it’d be nice if he can finish a thought or point he’s trying to make without being interrupted and taken on a tangent by one particular cohost. It’s one pet peeve on an otherwise amazing show.
Hey guys. Love the pod. New theme song audio level is significantly louder than your mic levels. As soon as pod ends, my ears get destroyed when the theme song comes in. Appreciate the fix!
