It’s been over four months since the Miami Heat played a meaningful game. That all changes next week when the Heat open up the 2013 regular season on the road in the Windy City against the Chicago Bulls. The return of former MVP Derrick Rose is one of the many things we discussed with ESPN.com NBA writer Tom Haberstroh on One on One.

Marty Glickman spent 12 years at WFUV teaching the student broadcasters the art of doing play-by-play.  He began with Bob Papa and his final pupil was Spero Dedes. Spero gives his recollection of Marty including what he meant to him and his feelings upon seeing the new HBO Documentary "Glickman".

Ravaged by injury, the Chicago Bulls have given Deron Williams and the Nets a chance to climb back into their first-round affair, as the series shifts to the United Center for game 6 tonight. Tom Thibodeau's proud bunch heads home with a 3-2 lead, but reinforcements would surely help.

The Brooklyn Nets currently sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and second in the Atlantic Division. Sporting a record of 45-32, they have more than doubled their win total from last year, with 5 games left after their 104-83 thrashing of the 76ers Tuesday night. In Nets' 39 years in the NBA, only five other squads have more wins than this team currently does.

New York is labeled by most as a basketball town, but this city hasn’t had much to root for on the hardwood during the new millennium. In the twelve seasons since Patrick Ewing’s departure following the 1999-2000 season, the Knickerbockers, for the most part, have stunk up the ‘World’s Most Famous Arena.’

Saturday during One on One, Amit and I had the distinct opportunity to speak with Yahoo Sports National Baseball writer Jeff Passan about the Winter Meetings that took place last week. We talked about the logistics of the what goes on in the hotel complex, inquired about the outfield market, and got the latest word on the Mets and Yankees. (This was taped just before Zack Greinke signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers).

Most people know Dan Lauria as the father in the iconic family drama “The Wonder Years,” the Fred Savage star vehicle. More recently, though, especially for New Yorkers as Dan mentions in our interview, he is now recognized quite handily as Vince Lombardi, for his portrayal in the Broadway hit two years ago.
