ESPN Building Set at Miami Heat Camp: As the Miami Heat open their training camp next week in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, club President Pat Riley is defensive about how much LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have been hammered over the way the team was built. "They proved that they want to win by taking less money, they proved they want to win by having to give up the ball more and by coming to play together," he said. ESPN is building a set at their camp.

Is it me, or is ESPN's building of the set at Heat camp a direct extension of the now-infamous one hour "decision"?

I hate ESPN. Why hasn't their been any credible competition for them?

Once NBC and Comcast merge I think part of the plan is to build Versus and NBC Sports into a competitor. Fox started down that path but has changed to a mostly cherrypicking strategy. No one else has the capacity in the near future.

My comment should be "there" not "their".

ESPN makes me ill lately, especially the way they fawn over certain players. I wish there was a viable competitor.

I may be mistaken, but once income tax is considered are "The Big Three" really taking less money?

Don't they usually just hire the competition?

No, it's usually the other way around. Think Robin Roberts, Dan Patrick, Olberman, Storm, Steiner, etc.
