He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2012. It was mid-way through the third quarter when the crowd started to cheer. If you wanted to know why, you looked down.

With only two game days left before the NBA playoffs begin, literally anything can happen. Over the next two days, six playoff matchups will be determined.

Several teams were rumored as a possible landing spot, however, he ultimately picked Cleveland in the latter part of the summer. Minutes after the Cavaliers made its announcement, rumors quickly began to spread about why he was
Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond continues to show everyone why he’s one of the classiest young players in the NBA. Drummond wrote the name of each victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on his shoes for tonight’s game. He will also donate his game jersey to the school. The shooting occurred one year ago yesterday in the community of Newtown, Connecticut. One man entered the school and open fired on faculty and children. In total, 28 were killed, including the
