Just Released – Justise Winslow’s Miami Heat Hype Video

I’m still not sure how in the world the Heat ended up getting this kid at number ten, but they did and I ain’t complaining. After watching the above video I’m wishing the season started tomorrow. Justise Winslow has a talent and charisma for the game that will translate into not only wins, but some very exciting basketball.

After Chris Bosh’s injury, a disappointing end to last season, and uncertainty regarding a Heat Lifer, things just might be starting to turn around for the Miami Heat. If so, and all the pieces end-up falling back in place – The Heat should be a dangerous team this coming year.

The Great Miami Tornado

May 12 1997 Downtown Miami Tornado

Seventeen years ago today the Great Miami Tornado gave downtown Miami the scare of a lifetime. The tornado touched down around 2PM and crossed both the MacArthur Causeway and the Venetian Causeway as it headed towards Miami Beach. As the tornado left downtown Miami it lifted out of the water before touching down briefly in Miami Beach. Luckily, the tornado didn’t cause much damage. Other than minor damage throughout the city and a flipped car on the beach it was relatively harmless.
