LeBron v. Blatt: Video evidence of their disengagement

Blatt1

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

Bernucca: For West Teams, Trade Grades as Deadline Arrives Early

Rajon Rondo and Josh Smith

After last week’s loss in Atlanta, Memphis Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger – whose team has the fifth-best record in the NBA – lamented his roster’s shortcomings. “We have to get another playmaker on the floor,” Joerger said. “We’re going to have to start playing multiple point guards (at the same time). We’ve got to be able to get inside of defenses.” It doesn’t matter that the Grizzlies have been at or near the top of the league for most of the season.

SH Blog: LeBron’s Rehab; Hawks’ Sale; Deron Williams’ Injury

LeBron James Traveling for Rehab LeBron James has been rehabilitating his back and sore knee for the past week and is expected to miss another week to boot. The interesting thing to note is not how he is rehabbing it, but where. James spent part of this past week doing rehab in Miami, taking advantage of the warmer weather. And, while he has been avoiding sitting on the bench during Cavs games to spare his ailing back, it is for the warmer

SH Blog: Detroit Sets Franchise Record for 3’s in Rout of Cavs, Kobe Returns to Action

Andre Drummond

The Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the Detroit Pistons on Sunday evening and were blown out of the water. The Cavs lacked emotion, effort and chemistry throughout the entire game. Detroit went on to set a franchise record for three pointers made in a game in the 103-80 victory. They knocked down 17 of their 31 attempts from deep, a ridiculous 55% shooting. [Read more…]

Photo of the Day: Eric Bledsoe’s Dumb and Dumber Suit

BledsoeFeature

If you‘ve ever seen the movie Dumb and Dumber, you know exactly what I’m talking about here. If not, then you should just slam your head on the nearest desk/flat surface in shame for not seeing one of the best movies of all time. Just because I’m extremely biased towards anything with Jim Carrey in it doesn’t make the above statement not true, so I’m sticking to it. Anyway, on Tuesday December 9th, Suns guard Eric Bledsoe celebrated his 25th birthday, just

NBA Players Considerate of Recent Tragic Losses

It is often easy to look to our favorite athletes and just see them as stars and icons apart from the rest of the world. We watch their games, support their teams with fanaticism and get lost in the revelry and competition of sports. It is easy to forget that our favorite athletes are humans just like us, that they, too, have feelings and are affected by the world and people around them. Then, on occasion, there comes a time when

SH Blog: LeBron Calls Cavs “Fragile”, Anthony Davis Explodes for Career-High 43 Points

Anthony Davis

It’s been a tumultuous week for the Cleveland Cavaliers. After a solid four-game win streak against teams like the New Orleans Pelicans and Atlanta Hawks, the script has been flipped in Northeast Ohio. The Cavs are now on a four-game losing streak. An ugly losing streak. At times, we’ve seen glimpses of the brilliance of coach David Blatt’s offense. Unfortunately, at the same time, we’ve seen a nonexistent defense and a let’s-stand-around-and-watch-someone-dribble offense. [Read more…]

Tweet of the Day: Reggie Miller Adamant Philadelphia 76ers Would Beat Kentucky Wildcats

Considering that the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats dominated the No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks, winning 72-40 with relative ease, the question has since been posed as to whether the Wildcats would be able to defeat the hapless Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are now 0-11. They are statistically among the worst defensively in the NBA and, likewise, also among the worst offensively. Still, for all of the talented, young big men that Kentucky boasts on their roster, Philly still boasts a lineup of grown
