The Miami Heat dropped to a disappointing 5-4 record this season after a 112-107 loss to the Celtics on Thursday and players have already begun pointing fingers at veteran forward Juwan Howard for his lack of production thus far.

“Everybody knows that as Juwan goes, so goes the Heat,” LeBron James said of Howard, who is averaging 0.0 points per game in two appearances this season. “We had such high expectations coming into the season and I think they’re starting to get to him a little.”

Howard said publicly on Friday that he has already begun to regret his decision to join the Heat this offseason.

“I’m only one guy. I’m gonna need some help from Dwyane [Wade] and them, too,” Howard added.

Kwame Brown held a press conference on Thursday announcing the official start to the “Summer of Kwame”, the highly anticipated start to the NBA’s free agent period when, according to Brown, “the world will finally find out where I will play next season.”

Brown listed the 32 NBA teams with enough salary cap space to sign him and said that he would carefully weigh his options before “giving one team the good news.”

“I’ll probably meet with Dwyane [Wade] and Chris [Bosh] to see if they’re interested in playing together,” said Brown, who averaged 3.3 points per game last season with the Pistons. “I’m also waiting on at least 23 teams to return my phone calls, so things are definitely looking good for Kwame.”

Though Brown continues to insist that he is the most sought-after free agent on the market, conflicting reports from rasho-nesterovic.com are claiming this to be the “Summer of Rasho.”

Though widely thought to be a front-runner to land free agent forward LeBron James, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly withdrawn their interest in the NBA’s Most Valuable Player.

“After some careful thought, we realized LeBron James just wouldn’t be a good fit for this team,” said 76ers GM Ed Stefanski. “He’s an outstanding player, but at the end of the day, we could never see a guy like that playing in Philadelphia.”

With the Sixers’ pursuit of James at an end, the team will reportedly now shift its focus to not pursuing free agent guard Dwyane Wade.
