King Fishing

Just as Miami Heat fans are holding their breath over whether star Dwyane Wade will re-sign with the team, Cleveland Cavalier fans are worried that LeBron James will leave when he enters free agency at the end of this season. At least the Cavs’ management has made moves to appease their King, bringing in Shaquille O’Neal to miss free throws, slow down the fast break and spread jocularity. (Or spite. Just depends how much winning he’s doing, as we learned when he was down here.) If you want to catch those new-look Cavs, this Thursday’s 8 p.m. rumble is one of only two visits they make to American Airlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd, Miami) this season, the second coming January 25. But your weekly Heat fix isn’t over yet. Miami’s five-game home stint closes out with the New Jersey Nets (home of former Heat players Rafer Alston and Keyon Dooling) on Saturday, and then the Oklahoma City Thunder, in their only South Florida visit, bring the Kevin Durant show on Tuesday. Tip-off is 7:30 p.m. for both the Nets and Thunder games. Tickets start at $10. Call 866-448-7849, or visit
