Heat taking training camp to the Bahamas

AP - Sports

MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat are starting this season in the Bahamas.

The two-time defending NBA champions are holding training camp at the Atlantis Resort, with practices from Oct. 1 through Oct. 4. The team will fly to the Bahamas on Sept. 30, shortly after convening in Miami for the annual media day.

It's the first time since 2010 that Miami has gone on the road for training camp. That year, the first where LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade were teammates, the Heat went to a pair of U.S. Air Force installations in Florida's Panhandle.

The Atlantis has converted one of its ballrooms into a basketball court, and now hosts college basketball tournaments annually.
