  1. Maybe LeBron’s agent switch turns out to be a smart move

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:07 AM EST

    Olympics Day 2 - Basketball

    My initial reaction to LeBron James switching agents from Leon Rose and the powerful CAA — the agency that helped bring LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together in Miami — was that it was vintage LeBron. That once again he was tightening his inner circle to lean on close friends, and new agent Rich…

  3. LeBron changing agents, leaving CAA to be repped by friend

    Sep 13, 2012, 2:35 AM EST

    LeBron James of the 2012 USA Basketball

    Once again, LeBron James is leaning on his childhood friends and moving away from long-time industry professionals to represent him. That hasn’t always led to the best decisions in the past but it is his pattern over the years. LeBron is letting go of Leon Rose and the power of CAA (Creative Artists Agency) —…

  5. Report: Alonzo Gee reaches multi-year deal with Cavaliers

    Sep 10, 2012, 2:41 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    They were reportedly close to a deal nearly a month ago, yet nothing got finalized. The Cavaliers wanted Alonzo Gee back and he actually could have a starting role for them, but as always it came down to money. Apparently the two sides have figured it out, tweets the Plain Dealer. F/G Alonzo Gee, who…

  6. Three weeks to training camp… Kyrie Irving is not afraid of the moment

    Sep 9, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    The wait is almost over. We’re three weeks and three days from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. The point guard position in…

  8. Good news Cavaliers fans, Kyrie Irving recovery going well

    Aug 31, 2012, 9:15 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    If Cleveland is going to take any steps forward this season it’s going to be about Kyrie Irving. Yes, they need Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson to step up, to be part of the Cavaliers future, but Irving is the guy. That would be the Irving who had hand surgery this summer after he fractured…

  9. Chalmers: I’m on “front end of the top 10” point guards

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Mario Chalmers has never lacked for confidence. That has paid off for the Kansas Jayhawks when he sank the NCAA title-winning shot. It has paid off for the Miami Heat, giving them another guy who doesn’t fear the big shot at the end of games. But with that confidence can come the belief that you…

  11. Waiters says it was no big deal he was out of shape at Summer League

    Aug 28, 2012, 8:04 AM EST

    Dion Waiters Summer League

    Dion Waiters did not impress at Summer League in Las Vegas. The No. 4 pick of the Cavaliers seemed a step slow, and going against guys who were fighting for jobs in the league (or overseas) he looked sluggish. Not ideal for the guy you drafted as an athletic slashing wing. More than one person…

  12. Byron Scott is pretty pumped about C.J. Miles on Cavaliers

    Utah Jazz forward C.J. Miles reacts as Miami Heat forwards Udonis Haslem, left, and LeBron James walk off the court at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    We’re bringing you a few Cleveland Cavaliers notes… because it’s August and we need things to write about. After this we’ll wait until Kyrie Irving does something interesting again. Cavaliers coach Byron Scott was asked about the acquisition of C.J. Miles and apparently the two have a mutual admiration society going on. Miles said he…

  13. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

    There was a time, a few years and a few knee surgeries ago, that Kelenna Azubuike was a player on the rise. His last year in Golden State he averaged 13.9 points her game on 54 percent shooting, he was incredibly athletic and had the kind of game fans love to watch. He played well…

    Right after capturing gold in London, LeBron James suggested this could be it for him and the Olympics. He didn’t know if he would keep going. But after thinking about it for a week, he sounds like he’s in. LeBron was back in Akron doing charity events last weekend and spoke with the Associated Press:…

  17. Reports: Cavaliers near three-year deal to keep Alonzo Gee

    Alonzo Gee was one of those guys waiting for a better offer — one that he thought matched his potential — that was just not going to come. Sometimes that’s how the system works. So he took the one on the table. Cleveland is near a deal to keep Gee for three years at about…

    Muhammed Rahim is a detainee at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, ad a former translator for the formerly alive Osama Bin Laden. He had his lawyer whip up a letter to the Washington Post, and in it, he asked for a cat for company, since other prisoners have them. Oh, yes, and he delightfully decided to…

    If you’re going to steal, steal from the best. Which is what Kyrie Irving has done with his deadly crossover dribble — steal ideas from the best. He spoke with SLAM Magazine and said that it all started with trying to be like Allen Iverson, but it grew from there. “When I was younger, I…

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Byron Scott is a good basketball coach. Yes, he is 40-108 in two seasons with Cleveland, but considering he walked into the post-LeBron trash pile that was the Cavaliers roster, that’s not all that bad. So they are working to keep him beyond this next season, when his deal expires. So reports the News-Herald (via…
