Heat Beat is hosted by Giancarlo Navas and Brian Goins, and is dedicated to bringing you the latest in Miami Heat news, insight, and commentary from HeatBeatMiami.com

Latest Episode:


Giancarlo Navas, Brian Goins, Leif, Brassjazz, Alex Toledo and Christian Hernandez spend the entire show debating Kyrie Irving's value, what it would take for Miami to acquire him, and why Cleveland is turning into full dumpster fire mode. Gianni also reveals a hidden love for Tyler Johnson that you can't miss. Oh

Gianni tones his outraged persona down for this episode. Hooray! Brass, Leif, Alex Toledo and Brian Goins join to discuss everything from puppet media questions, the Heat Beat perception of being homers, and who the most likely Heat member to search on the deep web is? We also debut "That's So Riley?" where we take your hard-hitting journalism questions that the media wouldn't dare ask The Godfather.

Kelly Olynyk gets signed by the Miami HEAT minutes before the show. What happens next is unhinged Giancarlo Navas blasting his bile and poison at tradable contracts. Harrison Cytryn, Clay Ferraro of WPLG, Crab, and Brian Goins try to calm him to no success.

Draft day is among us!!! We watch the draft live and react to everything as it happened. Gianni has no idea about who any of these people are. Nekias and Alex try to provide analysis. We also watch Monk drop and are on "Monk Watch" for much of the show. Also, who the hell is Adebayo?

The Finals are over!! The guys break down the NBA Finals as everyone slanders a different person. We talk how delusional HEAT fans think they are getting everyone and how McBobs is gonna save the HEAT? Gianni also tells his drunken story at a Chicago wedding, the guys react.

We welcomed Josh Baumgard of Slice Miami, who joined Giancarlo Navas, Brian Goins and Alex Toledo as they talked 2017 NBA Finals. Brian's old bad takes were exposed and the guys compared Golden State to the Big 3 Miami HEAT.

The Clusterbleep crew rejoins with special guest Chris Joseph of the Miami New Times. Harrison scorches the Earth with his hot takes on LeBron James, HGH, Michael Jordan and more. Brass Jazz is unhinged. And Christian Hernandez has the best Kevin "Capri Sun" Love stats.

We celebrate four years of The Heat Beat Podcast with Giancarlo Navas, Brian Goins, Leif, Alex Toledo, and a cameo from a very special guest.

Gianni, Brian, Nekias, Harrison and Alf discuss the 2017 NBA Draft Lottery and marvel at Alonzo Mourning's facial expressions. We talk conference final playoff matchups, how dumb people are for suggesting that players should leave the East because of LeBron, and Brian reads scouting reports on prospects the HEAT may target poorly.

We welcomed Chris Wittyngham of beIN Sports & Univision as our special guest to join Giancarlo Navas and Brian Goins in discussions that involve: Media members and former coaches who are statistically obtuse about advanced metrics, who the greatest NBA journeymen ever is, what if NBA commentators and color analysts don't rotate every year, and why the HEAT shouldn't pursue a reunion with Dwyane Wade. We also sprinkled some pop culture and soccer talk since it's the offseason and you can't expect much better from us.

Giancarlo Navas, Jack Alfonso, Nekias Duncan and Brian Goins fight through two hours of audio troubleshooting to bring you an hour of content that somehow talks about the Miami HEAT during a time when there are no games or news. How do we overcome it? Great question, you ask. Well, on this episode we debut a new segment where we give relationship advice using coined Spo-isms dubbed, "Exes and Spos," a parody from Elle King's pop hit "Exes and Oh's."

If you like bad, inconsistent internet connections, the sizzling sound of burgers being seared and Gianni's frenzied yelling sprinkled with some basketball talk, this is the pod for you. God bless your heart.

We welcomed Israel Gutierrez of ESPN & Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald to discuss two of the greatest Miami HEAT stories published on the same day: (1) Pay Riley's Manifesto from ESPN: The Magazine as written by Wright Thompson and (2) Dion Waiters' Masterpiece written by Dion "Google Me" Waiters himself for the Player's Tribune. We also break down HEAT free agency with Barry, who dropped some saucy nuggets.

Gianni, Alf, Alex and Brian welcome Allana Tachauer of Hoops Habit to breakdown Pat Riley's season-ending presser, Bulls-Celtics, Brad "2-10" Stevens, and #AssetsTwitter.
