LeBron_James_Cavaliers_27042008

No one made a bigger spectacle about the departure of LeBron James from Miami than Dan Le Batard, host of the show “High Questionable” on ESPN. It’s no surprise, then, that the early struggles of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been quite enjoyable for the man who got suspended for putting up these billboards in Cleveland. The Cavaliers have been surprisingly bad to begin the season, and things didn’t get any better on Friday against the Washington Wizards on national television. They

Tweet of the Night: Rudy Gobert did not like DeMarcus Cousins’ flop against Joakim Noah

DeMarcus_Cousins_Dec_2013

Didn’t DeMarcus Cousins have a problem with Chris Paul early in his career because he thought the point guard was a “cheater“? “It’s just, some players I don’t respect,” Cousins told Grantland. “Just their playing style of basketball. I don’t respect it. I feel like it’s basically cheating and I don’t respect a cheater. If that’s your tactic to winning, I don’t respect you.” Those were his exact words, and it’s understandable when you see what Paul did to earn that reputation from

SH Blog: Love not thrilled with his role on offense, SVG fires back at Markieff Morris

Bron KLove Ky

It wasn’t supposed to be like this for Kevin Love when news broke that he would be joining LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland over the summer. Sure, he was supposed to sacrifice like everyone else. That’s expected when you build a super team like this because there is only one basketball to go around. Just ask Chris Bosh, who went from averaging 24 points in Toronto to never sniffing 20 points again (regularly in the 18-point range) when he

Tweet of the Night: Marcus Morris does not mind being the butt of jokes on twitter after getting on Jeff Green’s poster

Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris

The Boston Celtics were hoping to change their fortunes at home on Monday against the Phoenix Suns after losing the past two games at the TD Garden. Unfortunately, Boston failed to execute when it mattered the most and suffered a 118-114 loss on Monday – their third consecutive loss at home. Jeff Green did all he could to help his team to a victory with 28 points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field. Included in his efforts were a pair of notable dunks

Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons not thrilled about Celtics loss to Cavaliers

The 2010 New Yorker Festival: In Conversation With Malcolm Gladwell

Friday night was a milestone-reaching one for Rajon Rondo, who passed Paul Pierce for fourth all-time in Boston Celtics franchise history for assists. Unfortunately, the point guard also came up with some dubious plays down the stretch that contributed to the 122-121 loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics were up 19 points heading into the fourth quarter and were well on their way to an even record of 4-4. Instead, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving scored a combined 25 points in the

SH Blog: Cousins explains why he will never respect Barkley, Bryant wants to see Spurs in playoffs again

Even a year ago, it didn’t seem as though DeMarcus Cousins would ever get his act together. The talent was undoubtedly there. Last season, the center averaged 22.7 points on 49.6 percent shooting from the field to go with 11.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks. The man can absolutely play, and is one of the toughest to guard in the league with his unique ability to shoot from the mid-range, create from the high post and simply bulldoze

Derrick Rose said some interesting things about the reason behind the decision to sit out certain games over the first couple of weeks after tweaking both of his ankles in just the second game of the season. To make a long story short, the oft-injured point guard stated that he’s putting his long-term health into consideration because he doesn’t want to feel discomfort years later when he is done with the game of basketball. Naturally, that’s a bit of a controversial statement and
