Miami Heat hosts the Dallas Mavericks at the American Airlines Arena. The Heat was energized and fired up. Rashard Lewis was off the bench and flying. Michael Beasley was floating to the rim (25-27). Dwyane Wade and Chris “Birdman” Anderson had a hook up in Q1 and Q4. LeBron James was charging the rim, charging over Dirk Nowitzki , the 16th leading scorer in the NBA (74-77).
Jose Calderon # 8 tries to stop Wade in the paint but he learns. “Can’t stop this.” Instead Calderon gets a technical.
Norris Cole was speeding on the runway. LeBron takes a clean shot to close Q3.
Wade makes a sneak attack from behind to gain a career-high steal (84-90). Norris Cole hits 3 with 3 seconds on the shot clock to give Miami a ten-point lead (89-96). In Q4 Dallas makes a fast break to catch up but the Heat steps up the pace. Chris Bosh gives Miami its 100th point.
Wade steals and LeBron kills to give the Miami Heat a 110-104 win over the Dallas Mavericks
In its first game of the season the Miami Heat starts a little slow allowing Derrick Rose # 1 to drive into the paint then fly through the air with a leg crist-cross throwing a one-handed hoop to the rim putting the Chicago Bulls on the scoreboard. “I rise again.”
Chris Bosh # 1 heads to the rim but gets rejected by Carlos Boozer # 5 (9-2). That brings on some adrelaline for Bosh who hits a bucket and the Miami Heat follows suit quickly picking up momentum. LeBron James # 6 hits 3 (13-10), Shane Battier # 31 hits 3 (15-13), and Ray Allen # 34 hits 3. Then Chris “Birdman” Anderson # 11 comes in and assists LeBron to give Miami a lead. (15-16).
Battier starts Q2 with a triple giving Miami a five-point lead (15-20). Norris Cole # 30 hits 3 (15-23). Cole wasn’t a train he was an airplane with arms spread out wide and a crue cut dew like he was about to take flight. Norris and Birdman, who sharpened the spikes on his dew, pressured some defense that forces a jump ball and opens Battier for 3. (20-29). Dwyane Wade # 3peat contributes some dynamic defense that takes a rebound (20-29), then adds 2 to the scoreboard. “Don’t stop me now.” Wade then makes a steal racing down the court shifting from left to right to the rim (20-34).
LeBron hugging the baseline goes up for 2 (20-36). Rose with the intent to get to the rim gets rejected then Bosh hits 3 (20-39). LeBron with a one-handed toss up adds 2 (20-41 Q2 4:15). Ray Allen # 34 hits 3 then Mario Chalmers # 15 takes a steal and gives Miami its 50th point just minutes before half-time. With seconds on the shot-clock Battier struggles and staggers in for 2. Moving the ball fast, Miami gets a delay of game penalty. (Uh, no comment). James passes a final assist to Anderson for 2 giving Miami a 33-54 lead at half-time.
Wade starts Q3 with in-your-face pressure at the baseline that inhibits Joakim Noah’s forward momentum (33-54). Chalmers hits 2 and Bosh adds 3 (37-58). Luol Deng # 9 takes his 4th personal foul sending Chalmers to the floor. With some more dynamic defense Wade goes up and challenges Noah at the rim interrupting his shot (41-62). LeBron with either beans in his pants or music in his soul dribbles dancing to his own music. In the case of Boozer versus Anderson, Anderson overrules Boozer’s intended play (56-76).
With a shake of his fist, LeBron directs traffic and with faith but no ball Anderson follows suit and heads to the rim where the ball meets him and they hook up for 2. “That’s trust in my teammate.” Allen does what he does adding 3. Cole takes a rebound and flys (60-83). With 9:12 remaining in Q4 the Heat’s 25 lead is cut to 15. Cole to Bosh for 2 (72-91). Kirk Hinrich # 12 fouls out with Wade on the runway (74-93). Quickly shifting to defense, Wade jumps like a lion. LeBron gets pass Deng and up for 2 (79-95). Wade’s arm gets caught up between Jimmy Butler’s arm and chest. “Hey, Ref, I can see way over here that’s not a foul against Wade. Oh well, don’t let it stop the forward momentum.” Shane Battier goes for 3 (89-100) and LeBron follows with a mid range pull-up for 2, then Wade follows with a final shot adding 3.
The Heat wins the game 95-107, but the real duo was the commercial competition. LeBron James’ Samsung versus Derrick Rose’s Adidas. Rose you got my attentioin, but the little “Brons” and family stole the show. LeBron even starts his own critical mass with little bike riders following suit.
In an opening pre-season game the Miami Heat comes down on Atlanta Hawks and takes a 92-87 win. Chris Bosh leads the Heat with 21 points. He demonstrates his twirl to the rim shot. Meanwhile, Roger Mason demonstrates his shooting ability as the second highest scorer with 14 points. Rashard Lewis the third highest scorer with 11 points was flying to the rim tonight.
Get ready for Tuesday, October 29th when the Miami Heat’ season opens with the Chicago Bulls. Battle of the titans.

Miami rocked with tornadoes and rockets last night. The number 1 and number 2 ranked high school football teams in the country are both in Miami. They went up against each other and rocked this town. It was Terry Jefferson’s interception that solidified the number 1 ranking for Booker T’s Tornadoes. Maybe NFL material for the Miami Dolphins.
This week I conducted a television interview with Carole Ramsey on the Goddess T.O.U.C.H. (www.goddesstouch.net), WRPBiTV, which will air at 7:30 on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, a day generally associated with chaos. As we prepared for the interview I felt a powerful calming energy, the type of energy that is needed to transform any anticipated chaos into calm.
Preparing for the interview I looked back on my life and realized there was not one but two of us. I was born a twin intricately intertwined with another person. However, the deeper I explored my inner depths, the more identities I uncovered within me.
I was born left-handed and naturally inclined to be left-handed. But a family decision and what I call an artificial experiment turned me right-handed. The more I prepared for the interview and studied who I was, the more I learned who I am. It helped me to clean mental and emotional fog that gave better visibility and reflected shadows within me; two separate identities, maybe more. There was the naturally left-handed, right-brain, freedom-seeking, fun-loving, artistic, creative, emotional, identity within me. And then there was the right-handed, left-brain, intellectual, structured, stoic, analytical, artificial identity that co-existed within me. My left-handed emotional identity is an author and a passionate speaker. My right-handed intellectual, analytical identity is a lawyer. This identity doesn’t want to admit that success comes from coordinating with contributions from that other identity. It is a jealous mistress co-existing in the same household constantly creating havoc within me. I could be so much better than I am if I could get these two identities to work together. I can’t get them to understand that if one succeeds they both succeed. Like two selfish children they don’t want to compromise. “No negotiating, get rid of her.”
My twin and I understood compromise. What was hers was mine and what was mine was hers, that gave us twice as much. When she excelled I excelled. It is so much easier to reason and communicate with the twin without than with a more personal identity within me. My left-handed identity, hidden under the carpet but passionately commanding,, “I am nothing if I can’t sing my song.” While standing in the shadows is my analytical identity, a jealous mistress, knowing that it can never be the one, my first love, the one that makes my heart sing.
As I sat looking into the television camera, Greg Oden, the new center for the Miami Heat came to mind and at that moment I became absolutely clear of his issue that I wrote about in my July 20, 2013 blog. “He can be so much better than he is, just like I can be so much better than I am.” But, how do I tell him I can’t even communicate with myself?
Now for all of you who keep asking what happened to my book, “How I Broke the Glass Ceiling,” the one that received the 2001 Outcry Book Review
and picture with Oprah Winfrey. Now I know the answer and why. It is intricately hidden within the covers of Sink or Swim just like the identities that hide within me.
Ranked number 296, 17 year-old Victoria Duval pulls off an upset in women’s tennis at the US Open in Flushing Meadows, NY. Down a set she tap-dances her way back and beats the 2011 champion Samantha Stosur from Australia. What a way to win your first Grand Slam victory. Mentored by Billie Jean King, Duval’s victory takes place in the Billie Jean King Tennis Center.
Born in Miami with roots in Haiti, friends and family saw Duval’s tennis potential and supported her. Her Mom wanted her to be a ballerina but tennis has given her family a life. Duval’s father survived the fury of Haiti’s earthquake that nearly destroyed his dreams. Now, Duval and her family celebrate victory on and off the court.
Hard work and determination – they do pay off. Add to that friends who wish you well, you will excel.
WNBA Chicago Sky is heading for a play-off Championship. Player Sylvia Fowlers is reaching beyond her limits to make sure that happens. In the last 5 games she averaged 21 points. In the last game against Washington, Fowlers grabbed 16 points and 15 rebounds. Fowler leads the WNBA in field goal percentages (58.1) and rebounds (11.9). Add to that Star rookie Elena Della Donne who returned from injury to score 24 points, WNBA play-offs - I see Chicago’s Sky going the distance. Watch at 8:30 tonight to see if the Sky is the limit for the New York Liberty.
Udonis and Faith this is your big week. Take marriage seriously. Faith, just because you say, “I Do,” does not mean that Udonis’ millions of fans will give him up. He still belongs to us. We’ll add you to the family but be clear what this means - you now become a superwife. Read that book so you are clear of the role you are stepping into. Much love for many years from all the fans.
