The Miami Heat news is still coming in hot, even with the current NBA suspension. Here’s a look at some of the recent hot stories from around the web.

The Miami Heat are always a good story. Whether that be to write about, talk about, watch play out closely, or even observe loosely from afar. That fact hasn’t changed at all since the NBA suspension was put into place to combat the current world situation.

This is only further cemented by the cast of characters that play for the Miami Heat, work for the Miami Heat, or have played and/or worked for the Heat. With such a pleasantly volatile bunch, it is no wonder the Miami Heat newswire never gets a break. With that in mind though, here’s a look at some of the hot stories from AUCH and around the web.

Heat’s Kendrick Nunn: I’ve proven I’m an NBA starter . . . and Rookie of the Year (Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel)

"“I’m Rookie of the Year,” Nunn said in an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel, not backing down even when reminded of the superior statistics of Memphis Grizzlies breakout rookie Ja Morant.“I think people will say that he is Rookie of the Year, but I don’t believe it,” Nunn continued. “The most value should be in the wins. And we’re both starting guards on teams, and our team has been holding it down. We’re a playoff team, so go ahead and give that Rookie of the Year to Kendrick Nunn.”"
