lebron-james

We knew there would be some bumps and bruises along the way, but going 1-3 in their first four games is not what anyone envisioned when the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired LeBron James and Kevin Love in the offseason. Unfortunately for them, that’s exactly where they are after losing to the Utah Jazz 102-100 on Wednesday thanks to a game-winning buzzer-beater from Gordon Hayward. The offense for the Cavaliers is very much in the infant stages, and David Blatt has yet to

Tweet of the Night: Rachel Nichols and Daryl Morey agree on the best team in Southwest Division

After unexpectedly losing Chandler Parsons to free agency, the Houston Rockets were supposed to take a step back from a season ago. They also lost Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik for nothing in their attempt to free up cap space to sign Chris Bosh, which ultimately failed when the power forward re-signed with the Miami Heat. The Rockets did manage to sign Trevor Ariza to replace Parsons, though, and that move has helped them stay undefeated through the first six games, making

Less than a month back from a three-week suspension, Grantland founder and editor-in-chief Bill Simmons seems poised to ruffle more feathers with network executives at ESPN. This time, however, the target of his revile was not NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, though his stance on Goodell hasn’t changed.

Much like the first time LeBron James formed a trio in Miami, the new Big 3 in Cleveland are struggling in the early going. Expected to be one of the top two teams in the East, the Cavs have struggled out of the gates, losing to the New York Knicks, Portland Trail Blazers and barely edging out a win against a shorthanded Chicago Bulls team in overtime. The defense has been suspect, but the bigger surprise is their lack of continuity on

Tweet of the Night: Jordan Crawford is less than thrilled with the play of Trey Burke

Former Golden State Warriors backup guard Jordan Crawford is no longer in the NBA after finding a home in China in the offseason. He still has great interest in what’s going on in the league, though, and tweets about various NBA activities from time to time. On Monday, he set his eyes on the game between Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz. After seeing Chris Paul notch a triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists against Trey Burke, who had
