David Blatt Just Stands There Like A Buster And Parrots LeBron's Calls

The whole thing is worth a listen, but… » 3/31/15 6:28pm Yesterday 6:28pm

Mr. Whammy Says LeBron Complained To NBA Security About Him

Mr. Whammy (real name: Bruce Reznick) is a 79-year-old Nets superfan who has had season tickets for nearly two decades. When opposing players take free throws he walks down from his seats to right below the basket and follows a very specific yelling and waving routine to try and make them miss. He claims, at the… » 3/28/15 11:48am Saturday 11:48am

Timofey Mozgov Is A Heavy Hitter In The Local Commercial Circuit

Yesterday, we learned that Timofey Mozgov starred in a fantastic local commercial in which he wore a backwards jersey and repeatedly looked off-camera, but now we know that's not his only spot.

Timofey Mozgov's Local Commercial Is An All-Time Great

We are unabashed fans of awkward local commercials starring athletes, and this new piece of work starring Timofey Mozgov in a backwards jersey is an instant classic. Give the inspired wardrobe choice the respect it deserves, but don't let it distract you from those pained glances away from the camera. » 3/26/15 1:51pm Thursday 1:51pm

Kyrie Irving Made Timofey Mozgov's Job Very Easy

Cavs center Timofey Mozgov scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting while playing just 17 minutes in last night's rout of the Nets. That's an efficient-ass game! He's got Kyrie Irving, who set up five of those seven made buckets with some beautiful passing, to thank for it. » 3/19/15 10:52am 3/19/15 10:52am

Attention: Stop Taking Photos In The Locker Room Of Half-Naked LeBron

Common courtesy dictates that you don't take photographs of half-naked strangers without their permission. Also, when you get caught doing so by said strangers, you should fess up instead of lying. This advice might seem obvious, but not so to three unnamed members of the basketball media. » 3/17/15 9:12pm 3/17/15 9:12pm

Kyrie Irving Unleashes All Hell In The Perfect Meaningless Game

San Antonio isn't usually a place for mid-March NBA thrills. Oh, the latter-day Spurs remain perfectly capable of playing the sort of gyroscoping, pinball-passing game pretty enough to goose Red Auerbach's carcass from 6 to 12, but it's very a long season and a very old team and while you can usually count on them for… » 3/13/15 10:21am 3/13/15 10:21am

Kyrie Irving Hits Buzzer-Beating Three To Force Overtime

Down six with just over 30 seconds remaining, it looked like the Cavs were certain to take the L tonight in San Antonio. That's before Kyrie Irving hit a pair of three-pointers—one at the buzzer—to force overtime. » 3/13/15 12:36am 3/13/15 12:36am

Point: Iman Shumpert Says Empire Is Plagiarizing His Life; He's Wrong

Empire is the story of Empire Records, a mega-successful record conglomerate headed by heavy-handed CEO Lucious Lyons (played by Terrence Howard). Lucious has three sons: Andre, Jamal, and Hakeem.

When Was The Last Time LeBron Started A Game Not Wearing A Headband?

Look at that, a pretty standard picture of LeBron James driving to the hoop in the Cavaliers win over the Mavericks last night. But wait a second, where is the man's ever-present headband? » 3/11/15 12:58am 3/11/15 12:58am

James Harden Suspended One Game For Kicking LeBron James

The NBA just announced that James Harden will miss one game and one game check for a kick to the inner thigh of LeBron James during last night's Rockets OT win over the Cavs. He'll miss Houston's game against the Hawks tomorrow. » 3/02/15 6:38pm 3/02/15 6:38pm

​Kendrick Perkins Had A Very Kendrick Perkins Game

LeBron James was amazing, but I would like to draw your attention to another remarkable performance from last night's game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors: That of Kendrick Perkins, a rusty tugboat that washed up onto a basketball court during a hurricane. » 2/27/15 2:31pm 2/27/15 2:31pm

LeBron James And The Scary Cavaliers Put A Beatdown On The Warriors

The Cavaliers played the Warriors tonight in what was billed as a potential Finals preview. If that is indeed what it was, the Cleveland Cavaliers will win the NBA Finals 4-0. » 2/27/15 12:21am 2/27/15 12:21am

What Exactly Did Yahoo Publish That Got Dan Gilbert So Angry?

On Thursday, we reported that Quicken Loans and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, and his lawyer, called Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer last year to complain about a line in a blog post authored by Kelly Dwyer. This happened the day after Yahoo and Quicken Loans signed a major brand agreement. Mayer immediately… » 2/16/15 3:15pm 2/16/15 3:15pm

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

The Mystery Of LeBron's Hairline Has Been Solved (Probably)!

Hey. Hey, you. Hey! Remember back in September when LeBron James, owner of a famously receding hairline, suddenly had hair again? And remember how a few weeks later, his new hair just up and disappeared? Remember?! » 2/12/15 9:51am 2/12/15 9:51am

LeBron's Going To Opt Out, But Don't Panic

Cleveland.com has an interesting look at the details of LeBron James's contract with the Cavaliers, and why it's a certainty that James is going to decline his player option this summer, and again the summer after that. It's flexibility, sure, but it's also tens of millions of dollars. » 2/10/15 2:23pm 2/10/15 2:23pm

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
