Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Jesse Jackson compares Dan Gilbert's LeBron rant to slavery. Just when you thought that story couldn't get crazier.

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:48 PM EDT

    Jesse Jackson went off the deep end today. I have no other way to describe this commentary on the Rainbow Push Website. “(Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert) speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway…

  2. Heat have interest in Zydrunas Ilgauskas

    Jul 11, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    This should make Cavs happy. Did I say happy? I meant, “feel like they were kicked in the back of the head after getting hit in the groin with a tire iron.” Mike Wallace of the Miami Herald reports that Zydrunas Ilgauskas is “looking into the option” of joining LeBron James, a close personal friend,…

  3. Windhorst: LeBron James was headed to Miami for years

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    Brian Windhorst was the MVP of sports media from the time the NBA season ended, right up through the first two weeks of July (and going strong). The beat reporter for the Cleveland Plain-Dealer has been following LeBron James since he was in puberty, following the prolific modern athlete through high school, his decision to…

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    This should make Cavs happy. Did I say happy?

  5. Nike brings Cleveland 'Witness' banner down

    Jul 10, 2010, 8:31 PM EDT

    It’s got to feel a little bit like taking the ex’s stuff out of the closet after she runs off with her dance instructor friend, the one you never liked. Today Nike officials started bringing down the giant ‘Witness’ banner outside of Quicken Loans Arena, days after its star, LeBron James, abandoned the city to…

  6. LeBron on Gilbert's comments: "I absolutely know I made the right decision"

    Jul 10, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Man, is this going to get awkward. At the press-conference… and I use that term loosely, to introduce LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh as the new Heat triumvirate yesterday, LeBron reacted to Gilbert’s diatribe comments in his letter to the fans of Cleveland (and subsequent interviews). Courtesy of Heat blog Peninsula is Mightier…

  7. What the Raptors and Cavaliers were left with in the ruins

    Jul 10, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    This is going to come as little consolation, but here’s what the Cavaliers and Raptors got out of the sign-and-trade deals that ripped away their franchise players and formed one of the most powerful triumvirates in the league. Via ESPN: The Raptors got the 2011 first round pick they traded to Miami, as well as…

  8. LeBron James and Chris Bosh re-up with their respective teams…before being traded to the Heat

    Jul 9, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    With a sequence of events as massive in scale as the LeBron-Bosh coup, we all knew it couldn’t be simple. Sure, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could have each theoretically signed free agent deals outright with the Heat, but doing so would’ve likely left Miami in a painful salary cap situation despite their undeniably effective…

  9. Dan Gilbert marks down LeBron to discount prices

    Jul 9, 2010, 7:36 PM EDT

    Don’t know if you noticed, but Dan Gilbert was a little angry last night. What with the angry letter and the angry phone calls and the playing it up for the angry mob. Then this morning his company took a little dig at James. Gilbert is the owner of Fathead, the people that make life-size…

  10. Now what, Cavaliers?

    Jul 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Come early November, there will be NBA games at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Nobody in Cleveland wants to think about it today, but it will happen. And  can wonder what the Cleveland Cavalier roster will look like for Byron Scott. Who now has a very different job than the one he hoped for.…

  11. Report: Heat trying to convince Cavaliers to do sign-and-trade for LeBron

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:56 PM EDT

    Things that are never going to happen: Dane Cook winning and Oscar for his acting; Jerry Buss selling the Lakers to Donald Sterling; Britney Spears recording a song I tolerate… And Cleveland agreeing to a sign and trade for LeBron James. But the Heat are asking. That according to the guy with the sources in…

  12. LeBron James: The Golden Boy No More

    Jul 9, 2010, 12:16 AM EDT

    LeBron James came into this league as the most hyped prospect in the history of the NBA. The first three years of his career were little more than a prolonged honeymoon, an open celebration of how good LeBron already was and how good he would someday become.  The next two years of LeBron’s career were…

  13. Cleveland Cavaliers official statement

    Jul 8, 2010, 10:35 PM EDT

    Cleveland released a statement from General Manager Chris Grant: “We believe in this team, this organization, this community, and what we will do to compete at the highest level. We believe in the new coach and leader we have in Byron Scott, and the world class basketball organization and positive and strong culture we’ve established.…

  14. If not Miami, then where?

    Jul 8, 2010, 7:35 PM EDT

    All signs point to there being a South Beach party tonight thanks to LeBron James. Because there ain’t no party like a South Beach party. No, seriously. There isn’t. But what if LeBron is not going to Miami? What if this was all an elaborate smoke screen? What if he just walks up the podium…

  15. LeBron could make more money in Miami than Cleveland – thank you state taxes

    Jul 8, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Life in Miami is good. Warm weather all year around. Great beaches. Amazing clubs. Fantastic restaurants. Beautiful people. LeBron James has to be enticed by all that. Plus he would make more money in Miami. Yes, Cleveland can pay him more, for the first five years of the contract that comes to about $4 million…

  16. LeBron's choices: It seems like Miami now, but in this drama things change

    Jul 8, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We don’t know. We won’t really know until some time between 9 and 9:15 pm Eastern tonight. What we have now is drama. Manufactured drama. And that makes every rumor suspect — if you were trying to create drama for a show like this, you’d leak different things to different people. You’d keep everybody guessing,…

  17. Suns' Jared Dudley says LeBron James is going to New York

    Jul 7, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    I really hope Jared Dudley is wrong about this, because if he’s right we’re all going to be hearing damn Jay-Z and Alicia Keys on a loop for the next year. Phoenix Suns bench guy and growing media darling (he is one of the best interviews in the game) Jared Dudley is saying it is…

  18. Report: Teams going after Carlos Boozer in last-ditched effort to lure LeBron

    Jul 7, 2010, 2:03 PM EDT

    The LeBron James sweepstakes are not over. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade will be in Miami, and it is possible that James will join them (if Toronto will take on Michael Beasley’s contracts or if the big three are all willing to take a pay cut). But other teams are trying to provide an alternative.…

  19. Teams, some in LeBron James camp caught off-guard by television program

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    You thought the LeBron James television special idea came out of the blue, imagine the teams that have been courting him? According to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, officials from the teams that met with LeBron did not know of the television special until the word broke on ESPN last night. Here is…

  20. What does Wade/Bosh pairing mean for LeBron James? It doesn't help Cleveland's chances.

    Jul 7, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are teaming up in Miami. The Eastern Conference is getting tougher at the top, the road to the finals and a shot at the ring James desperately wants is getting harder. That leaves LeBron James with a tough choice: Stay at home in Cleveland with a good team that has…

  21. LeBron to make his announcement on ESPN Thursday night

    Jul 6, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    One hour that comes down to one word. LeBron James will make an announcement in an hour-long special Thursday night on ESPN, starting at 9 p.m. Eastern. Chris Broussard, the ESPN reporter who has the best contacts in the LeBron James camp of just about anyone, made the announcement on ESPN News. LeBron and his…

  22. Smart money bet: LeBron stays in Cleveland, Wade and Bosh to Miami

    Jul 6, 2010, 6:49 PM EDT

    We don’t know. There is no 100 percent. But the signs are starting to point the same way, especially when you take a step back and look at them in total — LeBron James re-signs in Cleveland, while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh team up in Miami. Take these tweets from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Cavs…

  23. Byron Scott: "75 to 85 percent chance" Cavaliers keep LeBron

    Jul 6, 2010, 3:05 PM EDT

    Byron Scott is in. All in. Either way. But given the choice, “do you want to coach LeBron or not?” The answer is yes. And he told Mason and Ireland on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles he has a good shot. “If I’m going by my gut feeling I would say there is a 75…

  24. Signs pointing to Wade in Miami, Chris Bosh joining him. Unless Bosh goes to Cleveland with LeBron.

    Jul 6, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are convinced that the Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh tandem is headed to Miami. Ira Winderman — the most connected guy with the Heat — is saying it looks like Wade will return to South Beach. But now reports are out there that the Cavaliers have a sign-and-trade in place with the Raptors…

  25. Cavaliers GM Chris Grant talks after LeBron meeting

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

      You had probably gone through your entire morning without hearing some NBA executive spew cliches. We’re hear to fix that. This is Cavaliers GM Chris Grant after meeting with LeBron James a couple days ago. Pretty much all of the post-meeting press conferences sounded like this.
