  1. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 1: Stan Van Gundy believes giving valor to the victor

    May 15, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Ours is not a very positive society, in terms of the media, in case you haven’t noticed. So when the Cleveland Cavaliers were eliminated by the Boston Celtics, the turn from all over, including from this blog, revolved around the failure of LeBron James and the Cavaliers, and James’ legacy. As a side note, oh,…

  2. Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert speaks, says little

    May 15, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert got up on an empty stage yesterday and said, “well, that sucked.” Not in those exact words, but that was the gist. Here are his exact words about how the Cavaliers plan to go forward after a loss that could have devastating effects on the franchise for a decade or more.  

  3. Maybe we should listen to what LeBron himself said about his plans

    May 14, 2010, 6:11 PM EDT

    Tons of speculation and talk today — from the highest office in the land on down — on what LeBron James will do next. Maybe we should try listening to what LeBron James says. Not that he says much, but he is the authority on his plans.  

  4. Clevelanders "We Are The World" video to keep LeBron in town. Seriously.

  5. Cavaliers front office just looks, acts stunned

    May 14, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    First, team owner Dan Gilbert stepped up to the mike (well, sort of, there was no podium so he just looked exposed). “Obviously we’re very disappointed…it’s one of those things that you can’t believe it,” he said in a televised press conference. Then General Manager Danny Ferry took the stage and didn’t sound like a…

  6. Mike Brown still the coach in Cleveland. For now.

    May 14, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:50 PM: He may not have it for that much longer, but Mike Brown is still the Cavaliers coach, said team owner Dan Gilbert in a press conference Friday afternoon. “That’s not true,” Gilbert said of the report from Sports Illustrated that Brown has been fired. “Right now we are going through the evaluating…

  7. Tony Parker to skip World Championships; Rodrigue Beaubois to take his place

    May 14, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    Coming off a season where injuries kept him out of the lineup and held him back when he was in it, Tony Parker has decided to take the summer off. Parker will not represent France in the FIBA World Championships in Turkey in August. He announced his decision on his Web site. After a long…

  8. John Calipari tweets he is staying at Kentucky. Nobody believes him.

    May 14, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    John Calipari insists he is not leaving Kentucky. Seriously. You can tell he means it because he said it on twitter today. I’ve said many times that I’ve got the best job in the country. Still the speculation runs wild and I can’t stop that… I want to address this with the Big Blue Nation…

  9. Next decade of Cavaliers on the line with LeBron

    May 14, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The New York Knicks have spent the last two years doing nothing but clearing cap space. All for him. The New Jersey Nets have a nice young core and a new, insanely rich owner who throws a mean party. That should attract him. The Chicago Bull have become the frontrunner because of their core. The…

  10. Garnett's advice to LeBron: Get out now

    May 14, 2010, 9:28 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett was loyal to Minnesota. Timberwolves fans may not see it that way now, but he could have left much earlier than he did. But he was loyal, he was going to bring a championship there. He wanted to play for just one team, to have that legacy as the ultimate face of a…

  11. Suddenly everybody thinks LeBron is headed to Chicago. Everybody.

    May 14, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Just two weeks ago, all the smart money was on LeBron James staying in Cleveland. He wasn’t going to leave his home, he wasn’t leaving a team on its way to a title. Now those title hopes have been crushed and everybody seems to think he’s going to Chicago. That includes three NBA general managers…

  12. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics overwhelm meek Cavs to advance to Eastern Finals

    May 13, 2010, 10:40 PM EDT

    And so it ends. The number one seed in the East. The number one seed in the NBA. The title favorite, again. The MVP. Cleveland’s best chance for redemption. Swept away in a green tidal wave of Celtic pride. The Boston Celtics out-executed the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-85 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals because…

  13. Vince Carter says he can relate to LeBron James. Maybe the words LeBron least wanted to hear.

    May 13, 2010, 6:53 PM EDT

    LeBron has taken a mountain of, um, well, fertilizer for his performance in Game 5. Vince Carter feels for him, as he told the Orlando Sentinel. And when Vince Carter feels for you… “It’s a tough situation to be in when you want to be, when you are the best player in the league. Which…

  14. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: Celtics have a Magic reason to close out

    May 13, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    The Boston Celtics believe they’re the best team in basketball. That doesn’t really make them any different than any of the other teams left in the playoffs, save the Phoenix Suns (The Phoenix Suns: our NBA Playoffs Mickey and Mallory). But one thing they do know in the back of their heads is that a…

  15. NBA Playoffs Cavs Celtics Game 6: The LeBron referendum

    May 13, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Usually when a sportswriter makes the statement “Game X is the most important game of Player X’s career” it belies a rather pathetic lack of imagination and a pandering to traditional cliched writing. Every playoff game is the most important one, because every one could end up defining his career. What do people remember more,…

  16. LeBron on elbow: "an issue I'll deal with in the off-season"

    May 13, 2010, 12:07 AM EDT

    It’s been a day of amateur phycologists coming up with theories on why LeBron James was not aggressive in game five, why he had an off shooting night. Fear, mental weakness, maybe planning his escape out of town — there are a host of guesses out there. But maybe most logical answer remains physical. Maybe…

  17. LeBron to Chicago suddenly hot rumor of the day

    May 12, 2010, 9:15 PM EDT

    Last night’s performance by LeBron James dumped gasoline on the rumor mill. It’s been an out of control fire, a day of speculation and guesswork all over the Web. But nowhere was that flame hotter than when ESPN’s Chris Broussard went on television and said that if James decides to leave Cleveland, the Chicago Bulls…

  18. Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert says fans deserve better effort

    May 12, 2010, 7:34 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert had good seats for a terrible game. Front row on the baseline, just about 10 feet from the Cavaliers bench. The NBA Nation has spent a day psychoanalyzing the Cavaliers and LeBron James effort. Is it his elbow? Has he mentally checked out for NewYork? Was it just an off night for him…

  19. The scheduling powers that be have put the Western Conference Finals in cryostasis

    May 12, 2010, 3:57 PM EDT

    The NBA doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care that you’ve become accustomed to a certain standard of basketball living in the playoffs, and that your week is built around the usual nightly postseason fare. That’s why rather than schedule the Western Conference Finals to start at the tail end of this weak while the…

  20. Losers if John Calipari returns to the NBA: The Knicks

    May 12, 2010, 1:37 PM EDT

    John Calipari just shows up to watch the more important game so far in the NBA season — a game everybody wanted to have tickets for — and the rumors start flying. Calipari to the Cavs. Of course, last week it was Calipari to the Bulls. That’s not going to be the last rumor either.…

  21. Understanding the intricacies of LeBron's Game 5 letdown

    May 12, 2010, 11:21 AM EDT

    LeBron James had a rough Tuesday night. He shot 3-of-14 from the field as his team struggled to escape from under the heel of the Boston Celtics. Cleveland lost by 32 points on their home court, and when that happens to the best team in the league (record-wise, at least) boasting the best player in…

  22. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 5: Let's not overlook the return of the Celtics' horsemen

    May 12, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

    I understand the reaction. I had the same. Shock. Disappointment. Disbelief. It’s not about who you root for. LeBron James performing at a high level? It’s good for the NBA. It’s good for the playoffs. It’s good for the sport. And his monumental failure last night left a lot of basketball fans feeling betrayed, and…

  23. John Calipari to Cleveland to keep LeBron in town? Why not?

    May 12, 2010, 9:43 AM EDT

    Any place that dots can be connected around LeBron James, they will be. Even a few places they can’t people will try. So when popular Kentucky coach John Calipari had courtside seats for the Cavaliers/Celtics Game 5, lines started being drawn. We turn it over to Yahoo Sports college hoops blog The Dagger: One week…

  24. Spike Lee is a Celtics fan. For the sake of LeBron.

    May 12, 2010, 9:16 AM EDT

    Maybe he’s gone anyway. Who knows? If LeBron James has done one thing well it’s create an air of mystery and suspense around his off-season decision. Through it all, the conventional wisdom has been that if the Cleveland Cavaliers win the NBA title this year, he stays. However, if the Cavs melted down much earlier…

  25. NBA Playoffs Celtics Cavs Game 5: Celtics dominate as LeBron James fails in the big time

    May 11, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    If it’s true that the sports Gods hate the city of Cleveland, Ohio, tonight was an especially delectable act of maliciousness by the deities. The Boston Celtics walked into Cleveland, dragged the Cleveland Cavaliers outside, and executed them as if they were a lottery team, 120-88. LeBron James had 15 points on only 3 of…
