My Biography

Ira Winderman is embarking on his 23rd season covering the Miami Heat for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, witnessing more than 1,700 of the team's games. With the help of antacids (during the lean years) and a sense of humor (during the Pat Riley dictatorship), he has been able to remain a courtside fixture at AmericanAirlines Arena, a veteran 12 years older than coach Erik Spoelstra. Only former trainer Ron Culp had attended more Heat games, but, then again, Winderman has yet to tape his first ankle.
