Maybe the Cleveland Cavaliers should have kept Andrew Wiggins. Yeah, I know, it’s easy to say now, with Kevin Love sitting out fourth quarters and contemplating whether to re-up alongside LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, while Wiggins drops 20 every night for the Minnesota Timberwolves. But I’m not just saying it now. I said it back in the summer, too, before the big deal was even done.
Brook Lopez has been with the Brooklyn Nets since the 2008-2009 season when the team selected him with the 10th overall pick in the NBA draft, but it appears more so than ever that his time with the franchise has run its course. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, multiple teams are interested in the center and the Nets are more than eager to make something happen as they try to figure out how to fix their deeply-flawed roster:
Much has been made about all the drama going on in Cleveland recently with the way it has struggled over the past couple of weeks. Kevin Love, who has not been himself this year, has now been benched a couple of times for the entire fourth quarter with mixed results, while Kyrie Irving doesn’t seem to grasp what it means to run a team as the point guard. These are obviously troubling things, but there have also been some positives with the
I’m an avid Cavs fan who grew up in Beachwood, a suburb of Cleveland. I moved to Scottsdale in 2002 and have attended every Cavs/Suns game since. I didn’t even have a ticket to this game until 2 hours prior when I stumbled upon a ticket directly behind the Cavs bench for $300, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Hearing about the discord between coach David Blatt and LeBron James for the past week, I noticed some interesting interactions on
LeBron James made his much-needed return on Tuesday against the Phoenix Suns on the road after sitting out the past eight games – a span of two weeks. Unfortunately, his return wasn’t quite enough for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who suffered a 107-100 defeat for their sixth straight loss.
Sunday marked a tragic day in the sports world. Longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott passed away in the morning hours of January 4, 2015 after a long battle with cancer at the age of 49. The news is devastating to all those in the sports industry, including athletes, fans and viewers of ESPN. He brought something to the network and sports reporting that changed the game, and will continue to do so.
Superstar LeBron James will miss at least two weeks while he recovers from knee and back strains, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced Thursday. The seemingly indestructible James sat out the last two games with what was called soreness in his left knee. He underwent a barrage of tests at the Cleveland Clinic that included an MRI and revealed strains to his left knee and lower back, the team said in a statement. Treatment will include anti-inflammatories, rehabilitation, training room treatments and rest. James’
It’s still too early to push the panic button, but the situation in Cleveland is becoming more troubling by the day. The Cavs are now 18-12 after an embarrassing home loss Sunday to outmanned Detroit. That record that places them as only the No. 5 seed in the mediocre East, which is hardly what LeBron James envisioned when an apparent “super team” was formed over the offseason with James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Anderson Varejao, one of the team’s only reliable big men, was
