Report: Kyrie Might Not Play Until January 

Kyrie Irving had surgery to repair his fractured kneecap in early June, making the original three- or four-month recovery time fall right around now. The Cleveland Plain Dealer, however, is reporting that, according to multiple sources, it looks like Kyrie won’t suit up for the opener, and according to one, he might… » 8/27/15 5:05pm Thursday 5:05pm

Pipe Merchant J.R. Smith Is Going Back To Cleveland

Everyone’s favorite shooting guard/hoverboard pitchman J.R. Smith is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers for another two years. Because he’s J.R. Smith and he loves fun, he broke the news from the beach via Instagram. Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports our man has signed a two-year deal worth $5… » 8/20/15 11:00pm 8/20/15 11:00pm

Is Tristan Thompson's Threat To Take The Qualifying Offer A Bluff?

Six weeks ago, it seemed to be a foregone conclusion that restricted free agent Tristan Thompson would re-sign a big free agent deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He had just come off a good NBA Finals performance, and on the first day of free agency Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst reported that Thompson and the… » 8/10/15 10:05pm 8/10/15 10:05pm

RIP To Matthew Dellavedova And His Terrible, Beautiful Lob Passes

For a minute there, it looked like Matthew Dellavedova, little try-hard that he is, was going to become a Finals hero for the Cleveland Cavaliers. That didn’t really work out, but that’s not to say that Delly didn’t provide us with a great deal of entertainment, because oh man did this guy do some hilarious things… » 6/17/15 4:01pm 6/17/15 4:01pm

MVP Award Be Damned, These Were The LeBron Finals

This is a statistical accomplishment I honestly never considered was even possible: in the NBA Finals, LeBron James led all players on both teams in points, assists, and rebounds. That’s a Finals first—obviously—and in the first two categories, it wasn’t even close. The Warriors won as a team; the Cavaliers lost as a… » 6/17/15 9:19am 6/17/15 9:19am

The Golden State Warriors Are Your 2015 NBA Champions

This is the most sportswritery thing I’ll ever write, but all season long the Golden State Warriors won as a team. Sure, Stephen Curry was the MVP of the league, but he was far from a one man band. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Bogut all won league-wide awards. After two stagnant season, Harrison Barnes… » 6/17/15 12:07am 6/17/15 12:07am

Steph Curry Stinkface Shows He Always Chooses Luigi In Mario Kart

Stephen Curry brought some of the swagger back during last night’s Game 5 win against the Cavaliers, at one point delivering the stinkface following a fourth-quarter contested three-pointer—a shot that responded to LeBron’s long-range bomb seconds before, and one that gave the Warriors the lead for good. » 6/15/15 12:52pm 6/15/15 12:52pm

Here Is Another Picture Of Timofey Mozgov For Us To Cherish

At first glance, this picture of Timofey Mozgov doesn’t seem like much. It’s from his Facebook page, and comes with the caption “With my Russian agents (ProTeam Agency). Before the game,” which doesn’t signal anything special, but then you notice Mozgov’s SpongeBob shirt. And then you remember that he was wearing the… » 6/15/15 10:21am 6/15/15 10:21am

LeBron James Is Confident "Because I’m The Best Player In The World"

If he was a pitcher throwing this absurd a number of innings or pitches, we’d fear he was going to blow his arm out. If he were a hockey player double-shifting constantly, we’d assume he’d be gassed and ineffective. If he were a running back being run into the ground, we’d worry about his career being shortened. But… » 6/15/15 9:28am 6/15/15 9:28am

For The Undermanned Cavaliers, Fatigue Has Set In

What the hell else are the Cavaliers supposed to do? In Game 5 they conceded that the Warriors’s small ball unit was too good, and barely played Timofey Mozgov. LeBron James went off for a monster 40 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists (and only two turnovers). J.R. Smith finally (at least for awhile) showed up to the… » 6/15/15 12:39am 6/15/15 12:39am
