I really didn’t need to see three replays of this.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst brings us a report that offers the chance to imagine a fun alternate history: What if the Lakers had traded Kobe Bryant for LeBron James?
With last night’s victory against the Indiana Pacers, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 5-1 since David Blatt was fired and Tyronn Lue was named head coach. After the game, Kevin Love punctuated his team’s string of successes with this Instagram post:
Hey, even the King has an off-moment now and then.
Yesterday, Cleveland fired David Blatt, the grumpiest-looking head coach in the league, and moved on to Tyronn Lue. Tough break my man.
Right as the news broke that the Cavaliers had fired David Blatt, Brian Windhorst tweeted the funniest basketball tweet of 2016.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have fired head coach David Blatt, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Thirteen months ago in Cleveland, Ohio, a 12-year-old black boy named Tamir Rice was playing with a BB gun in a park when he was ambushed by two Cleveland police officers who drove up to the gazebo where the boy was relaxing. One officer, Timothy Loehmann, shot Rice in the chest before their police cruiser arrived at…
Kristaps Porzingis still has a lot to learn in this league, but he’s got one of the more important aspects of self-preservation down pat: when LeBron James has a head of steam, make sure you’re not in his path.
While chasing a loose ball late in the fourth quarter of the Cavaliers’ game against the Thunder, LeBron James absolutely crushed a fan sitting in the front row. The woman is Ellie Day, the wife of golfer Jason Day.
The Thunder and Cavaliers are locked in a pretty entertaining battle of two of the NBA’s best teams, with the Thunder holding a five point lead in the third quarter at publishing time. The most exciting play of the game so far is this Steven Adams dunk, coming at LeBron’s expense as he came late with the help.
During last night’s Cavaliers-Celtics game, Special Olympian Aaron Miller was honored during a timeout. LeBron James was in a team huddle while Miller was cheered at midcourt, but later went out of his way to run over to the kid and show him some love.
The Brooklyn Nets, who’ve been weirdly competitive against last year’s NBA finalists, went over to Cleveland and nearly took it to overtime, until LeBron went all Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on them and hit this gliding hook shot.
The above play isn’t the most remarkable moment from last night’s game between the Cavaliers and Bucks, but it’s one that says a lot about Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo’s continued growth as a player.
Buried in this ESPN article about how LeBron James really wants the Cavaliers to re-sign Tristan Thompson, is this legitimately cool thing:
Gilbert Arenas measured up as a rival to LeBron about as well as Ricky Davis did as a sidekick. This is unfair to a player as good as Gil who, had he not self-medicated a torn-up knee with packing tape and a staple gun, would probably be out here killing, since he was a shorter, stronger Jamal Crawford with like 20…
This morning LeBron James and Warner Brothers announced a partnership between the studio and James’s production company. You would not be remiss in getting excited (or feeling trepidation) about the possibility of an update to Space Jam, staring James and some of his closest NBA friends.
