SH Blog: LeBron James says 29-point loss to Hawks is not embarrassing, Mavericks trying to acquire Rajon Rondo

LeBron James

After going on an eight-game tear through the early parts of December, it looked as though the Cleveland Cavaliers were finally starting to figure things out. LeBron James took on more of a point forward’s role, Kyrie Irving became the go-to scorer, and Kevin Love was seemingly the third option on most nights. But just as things began to look much better, the tides have turned again recently, with the Cavaliers losing three of their last four contests, including Wednesday’s 127-98

SH Blog: Carmelo Anthony explains why he passed on Chicago, Kobe Bryant says him having no patience is a misunderstanding

Carmelo Anthony

Remember that time in the summer when Carmelo Anthony had the chance to join a team that was basically tailor-made for him? Hint: it’s not the floundering team he’s with right now. The answer: it was the Chicago Bulls, and they wanted the small forward badly to potentially create one of the most devastating teams in the entire NBA. Unfortunately, they couldn’t pay him the money necessary to bring him in (technically, no one could except you know who), and Anthony ultimately

Hubbard: Bird-Dirk: Still not a good comparison

When Dirk Nowitzki recently passed Hakeem Olajuwon on the list of all-time leading scorers, one publication ran photos of the top 10 scorers and it was easy to spot Dirk, the only white guy.

Fantasy Spin: Cavaliers & Celtics on Scoring Sprees

Rajon Rondo

As predicted, Golden State was up 74-55 at halftime and rolled to a 21-point victory over the Lakers on Sunday. Stephen Curry and Marreese Speights were great to own, but my attempt to stack seven Warriors did not pay off. The shocker was Houston scoring just 69 points — and winning! That ruined the day of everyone who paid top dollar for James Harden and Dwight Howard.
