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.
The Eastern Conference’s leader in Win Shares signed a highly publicized free agent contract this past offseason with the East’s best team. That player is not LeBron James but Kyle Lowry, the undisputed leader of the Toronto Raptors. And it is Toronto – not Cleveland – which has the East’s best record at 18-6. Lowry and the Raptors are 5-3 without All-Star shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, who injured his groin the day after Thanksgiving in a loss to Dallas. SheridanHoops went one-on-one with Raptors
The hottest team in the Eastern Conference doesn’t have a three-headed monster like the Cleveland Cavaliers. It doesn’t have a scrutinized superstar returning from injury like the Chicago Bulls or a rapper sitting courtside at every home game like the Toronto Raptors.

After struggling out of the gates to start the season and creating all kinds of media drama, the Cleveland Cavaliers finally appear to be finding their stride.

BROOKLYN – King James beheaded the Brooklyn Nets during an epic gathering at Barclays Center, and it is now safe to say that royalty is a word befitting the Cleveland Cavaliers. With the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sitting on one side of the court and America’s most popular couple – Jay-Z and Beyonce – directly across, LeBron James ruled with an iron fist.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a three-day tour of the United States. What was one of the first things they did besides getting off the airplane? They went to the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Brooklyn Nets game on Monday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It was their first NBA game. But, even before that, the Duke and Duchess were with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver celebrating the new community partnership between the NBA and the Royal Foundation.
The Atlanta Hawks, expected by some experts to finish out of the playoffs coming into the 2014-15 NBA regular season, are doing well … very well. At present, nearly a quarter of the way through the season, Atlanta sits in second place in the Eastern Conference with a 13-6 record — just a game-and-a-half back of the first place Toronto Raptors, who were also expected to be lower in the standings. This may be due, in large part, to the slow start
The Golden State Warriors set their franchise record for consecutive wins in a row on Saturday night with their defeat of the Chicago Bulls 112-102. It was their 12th straight victory, giving them an NBA-best 17-2 record. Golden State’s win ended their five game losing streak at the United Center. The Bulls were the first real test the Warriors have faced during their now twelve game win streak, earning victories along the way against lesser teams like the Lakers, Jazz and
