Warren Buffett is a fan of LeBron James. But who isn’t? Buffett was in attendance at the Cleveland Cavaliers game on Monday when they hosted the Charlotte Hornets. Sitting on the baseline next to the Cavs bench next to owner Dan Gilbert, Buffett is considered to be a unique but close friend of James. The two have had a personal relationship for awhile now, in which LeBron seeks his advice in business.
Since it’s Thanksgiving, we’ll use a few photos from around the NBA that players posted celebrating the holiday. Of course, there were plenty all over social media, but these were the few that I went with to share. We all know it’s the time of year for family and friends to spend time together and share what they are thankful for. It’s also the time of year in which you’re allowed to eat as much as you want, as fast as
Over the weekend, LeBron James called his slumping, underachieving Cleveland Cavaliers “a fragile team.” James is partially right. As a group, the Cavaliers aren’t dealing very well with the lofty expectations put upon them by pundits like me. Right now, they look like a typical front-running team that lacks mental toughness and gives in at the first sign of trouble. That was evident Saturday, when the Cavaliers sprinted to a 26-8 lead in the first eight minutes – and were overwhelmed thereafter
Points were hard to come by in the NBA on Sunday, which meant close but no cigar for my daily fantasy teams.
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
Thanksgiving isn’t for another week or so, but NBA teams are jumping the gun when it comes to the best part about the holiday: the feast. The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are two teams that hosted events featuring players and members of the organization. The food is great to have, but most would agree that being around family and friends celebrating Turkey Day is the best part. It’s important for those who don’t have the luxury of having a hot
Promoting one’s endeavors outside of the basketball arena is commonplace in the NBA. It happens all of the time. Whether it’s Dwyane Wade advertising for The Tie Bar, Chris Bosh hocking Mr. Nice Tie, Chandler Parsons pitching CP25 socks, Martell Webster championing his forthcoming rap album, LeBron James selling Beats by Dre or any athlete in the league selling their latest signature shoe, most players have things going on outside of basketball, and many use the success and popularity of
Unfortunately for the Oklahoma City Thunder, the basketball gods have decided to strike them in the worst possible way this season. It all started when rookie Mitch McGary suffered a broken left foot during the preseason. Soon followed a devastating injury to Kevin Durant, who similarly suffered a broken right foot during the preseason, forcing him to miss the next 6-8 weeks. Then came news that Reggie Jackson sprained his ankle and Jeremy Lamb tweaked his back during practice. Both have
