Dan Gilbert Didn't Like A Yahoo Blog Post, So Yahoo Deleted It

Quicken Loans is a predatory lender. It's impossible to read the numerous lawsuits against the mortgage company and conclude otherwise. So when Kelly Dwyer, the editor of Yahoo's popular NBA blog Ball Don't Lie, made an offhand joke about that fact in a post last year, he would have had no reason to think twice. » 2/12/15 2:55pm 2/12/15 2:55pm

LeBron Acknowledges Cryptic Tweet Calling Out Kevin Love

The Cavaliers are back on that horse, having broken a worrying slump with a 13-1 run; early panic is a memory, and another deep playoff run looks probable. But all isn't well in Cleveland. Kevin Love—who can become opt out of his contract this summer, by the way—cannot find his groove, especially on offense. » 2/09/15 9:08am 2/09/15 9:08am

Clippers Meltdown Like Toddlers In Loss To Cavaliers

The Clippers were mauled in Cleveland tonight. They only lost by 105-94, but that is a deceptive result as they were down 31 after three quarters. The game was only misleadingly close because the Cavaliers sat their starters for the entire fourth quarter. It was the kind of game where the NBA puts up a video titled » 2/06/15 1:13am 2/06/15 1:13am

Minnesota Timberwolves Hit Kevin Love With A Solid Burn

Kyrie Irving Drops 55 Points, Hits Game-Winning Walk-Up Three

Maybe the Cavaliers are the pretty good team we all thought they would be and not actually doomed? Since LeBron James returned from his injury two weeks ago he has looked like the LeBron we knew—and not the broken down, maybe past his prime LeBron we'd seen previously this season—in leading the Cavs to a 7-1 record.… » 1/28/15 9:54pm 1/28/15 9:54pm

J.R. Smith: I'm Better Now Because I Can't Really Party In Cleveland

LeBron Is Starting To Look Like His Old Self Again

LeBron James has been back in the Cavaliers' lineup for seven games since taking an eight-game hiatus to rest his ailing knee and back.

David Blatt Plunked By Errant Pass

Cleveland handily dispatched Chicago tonight for their third straight win, continuing to right the ship after going 1-7 with that LeBron James fellow out injured. But while the heat on coach David Blatt's seat has somewhat dissipated—and he's not been moved around by James in a few nights—his life is still chockablock… » 1/19/15 11:54pm 1/19/15 11:54pm

Kobe And LeBron Spent A Great Game Being Old And Having Fun

They've both been banged-up, they've been frustrated, their supporting casts not carrying the load of some of the great teammates of the past, and if last night's Cavaliers win over the Lakers brought out the best in Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, the whole thing had the melancholy tinge of a World War II reunion;… » 1/16/15 9:29am 1/16/15 9:29am

Report: Cavaliers Players Ignore, Openly Gripe About David Blatt

The Cleveland Cavaliers, with LeBron James back and their starting five finally intact, got smoked by the Phoenix Suns last night.

And after the game, ESPN's Brian Windhorst dropped a report that won't… » 1/14/15 12:08pm 1/14/15 12:08pm

The Cavaliers Need LeBron Back In A Goddamn Hurry
