  1. Daniel Gibson takes issue with LeBron’s “die down in the moment” comment

    Jun 1, 2011, 4:34 PM EST

    Daniel Gibson

    After the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron said that “I wanted to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment. The opportunity presented itself with this great organization and we made it happen.” Daniel Gibson, a longtime teammate of LeBron’s and one of his…

  2. Kyrie Irving may work out only for Cavaliers

    kyrie-irving

    As we said before, outside of failing his physical or showing up to his team interview with Cleveland wearing an “I love the Taliban” T-shirt, Kyrie Irving is going to be selected No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers come June 23. So why work out for anyone else? He may not, his agent implied to…

  3. Report: Cavs, Wolves, Pistons talky-talk; Cavs would get No. 1 and No. 2

    May 28, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Derrick Williams

    ESPN.com reports that the Cavaliers, Pistons, and Timberwolves are discussing a trade that is kind of complicated. Here are the pieces: The Pistons send Rip Hamilton and the No. 8 to Cleveland for part of their massive trade exception from you-know-who, which gets the guy who caused a mutiny in the locker room off the…

  4. Report: Blazers considering Danny Ferry as new GM

    Don’t expect the Portland Trail Blazers to move fast — they said they were going to take their time finding a new GM to replace Rich Cho — but apparently they have one name on their list already. Danny Ferry, the former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager who before and after that has worked with the…

  5. Report: Cavaliers try to offer No. 4 pick for Rudy Gay

    May 23, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Rudy Gay

    You’re going to hear a lot of teams trying to move out of or trade high picks this year — there is not much in this draft to make you want to stay up high. But this new rumor via a tweet from the very credible Jonathan Givony of Draft Express is laughable: Heard Cleveland…

  6. Stein: Lakers interested in Mike Brown

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Here’s the report, according to the ultra-reliable Marc Stein of ESPN.com: The Los Angeles Lakers are taking a deliberate approach to their search for a successor to Phil Jackson, but NBA coaching sources told ESPN.com the team has added Mike Brown to its list of candidates. The former Cleveland Cavaliers coach, now working as an analyst for ESPN, is…

    Grant Gilbert

    Could the Los Angeles Clippers have protected the pick they traded to Cleveland in the Baron Davis/Mo Williams deal, the one that became the No. 1 overall pick? It’s complicated, explains the brilliant Larry Coon (the CBA guru). Yes they could have, but not in a way that was good for them. Just go read…

  8. Hey Cleveland, Derrick Williams is happy to be your new LeBron

    May 19, 2011, 2:23 PM EST

    Derrick Williams

    Kyrie Irving took the smart, humble path — he told Clevelanders not to compare him to LeBron James. Arizona’s Derrick Williams — the only guy who could potentially knock Irving out of the top spot in the draft — is not so mild mannered. He wants to bring his star power to you, Cleveland, as he said…

  9. Could the Knicks want Ramon Sessions?

    May 18, 2011, 7:18 PM EST

    SESSIONS_RAMON

    Alan Hahn of Newsday.com thinks they might: The Knicks weren’t in the lottery for the first time since 2007 (the second of two picks yielded to Chicago in the Eddy Curry trade), but the results of the drawing could set up an opportunity for them. For one, the Cavaliers certainly have to strongly consider taking…

  10. Wolves GM Kahn says fixed lottery comment was joke

    You should decide this one for yourself. Late last night we told you about Minnesota General Manager David Kahn implying that the fix was in on the lottery (and how that will cross the line with David Stern). On Wednesday Kahn has been saying he was simply making a little joke and that has been…

  11. Kyrie Irving to Cleveland: Don’t compare me to LeBron

    May 18, 2011, 11:37 AM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    The comparison is a natural one. The last time Cleveland had the No. 1 overall pick it had a no-brainer of a choice and picked LeBron James. Seven years later he left in a messy way. Then the Cavaliers won the top pick in the NBA Draft and they are going to select Kyrie Irving…

  12. Clippers say no regrets for not protecting lottery pick

    May 18, 2011, 10:18 AM EST

    Mo Williams Clippers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will select Kyrie Irving with the top pick in the 2011 NBA Draft — not with their own pick, but the one they got in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers at the deadline. That deal was a salary dump by the Clippers — they wanted out of the two years…

  13. Wolves GM David Kahn hints at lottery fix. Fine on way.

    May 18, 2011, 2:46 AM EST

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    What can get you in more trouble with David Stern than saying his referees are biased? Saying the NBA Draft Lottery is fixed. Which is pretty much what Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn did after the lottery (where his team with the worst record fell to the No. 2 spot). Cleveland won the top spot.…

  14. Lottery brings Cleveland some building blocks, not a cornerstone

    May 17, 2011, 10:44 PM EST

    Hampton v Duke

    This is a night to celebrate if you’re a Cleveland Cavaliers fan. After a rough summer and a record losing streak this season, the Ping-Pong balls bounced your way. You won the draft lottery, so pop open a Great Lakes Brewing Company Edmond Fitzgerald porter and celebrate. Rebuilding can be a long, slow painful process…

    Kyrie Irving draft

    Start trying to picture Kyrie Irving in a wine and gold Cleveland uniform. The Cleveland Cavaliers got some good karma (maybe from owner Dan Gilbert’s son Nick) and won the NBA Draft Lottery — not with their own pick, but with the one they got from the Clippers this past season, the one with a…

    Before the Miami Heat try to go out and prove that when pressured they do not always resort to isolation basketball, Tuesday night will be the NBA’s annual draft lottery. It matters every year, this year for slightly different reasons than normal. Kyrie Irving of Duke is almost certain to go No. 1 overall, followed…

  17. NBA draft lottery: Who needs to win this most?

    May 16, 2011, 10:09 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Your team isn’t in the NBA draft lottery unless it needs help (or you used to do trades with Isiah Thomas). Everybody in it needs to win it. Especially this year, where the drop off from All-Star to “maybe he can be a rotation guy in a couple years” to “we’re hoping he can develop”…

  18. Dan Gilbert’s 14-year-old son to represent Cavs at lottery

    Isn’t it the dream of every 14-year-old boy to go to Secaucus? Actually, in the case of Nick Gilbert, son of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, this is pretty cool — he will represent the Cavaliers at the NBA Draft Lottery May 17. The younger Gilbert has Neurofibromatosis, a disease that causes the body’s nerves to…

  19. LeBron James apologizes for “The Decision”

    May 12, 2011, 11:18 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    LeBron James has said before that he regretted how “The Decision” went down, how it was perceived. Wednesday night, after he was incredibly clutch, after he slayed some demons, after his Heat team knocked off the Boston Celtics, LeBron apologized for The Decision, as reported by Brian Windhorst of ESPN. “I knew deep down in…

    Heat James and Wade celebrate with their team from the bench against the Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Goodbye and good luck, Joe Tait. More than Cleveland will miss you. As the minutes of the big three go up in Miami in the playoffs, who gets squeezed out? The cost of playoff tickets in New York is insane. But then again, the cost of everything in New York is insane. San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard…

  21. Pistons’ Villanueva suspended five games for losing it on court

    Apr 13, 2011, 5:46 PM EST

    Charlie Villanueva

    Charlie Villanueva earned this one. The Pistons reserve has been suspended five games, the league announced, after security — and eventually the police — had to keep him from going after Cleveland’s Ryan Hollins after a foul Monday night. Villanueva will sit out the Pistons season finalie against the 76ers Wednesday, as well as the…

    Charlie Villanueva Ryan Hollins fight

    Soon to be new Pistons owner Tom Gores was in the building. Charlie Villanueva has an interesting way of impressing him. What ended as one of the craziest moments of the year — with police trying to stop a locker room fight — started on the court with 5:45 left in the fourth quarter. The…

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed watching one wild bike race from Chile… Spurs 97, Hawks 90: Huge win for the Spurs because along with the Lakers loss this basically sews up home court for the Spurs in the West. As for why they won what was at times a sloppy game, they attacked inside and controlled the…

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Fascinating stat (prior to Wednesday night): Ty Lawson and Raymond Felton as a Nuggets backcourt had outscored their opponents 463 to 365 (via ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh). But two point guards won’t work. Cleveland got its signature win over Miami. Don’t think that changes anything. J.J. Barea is dating a former Ms. Universe. She’s basically as…

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis and his swagger are a great storyline and a Heat killer. The cathartic feeling for Cavaliers fans makes headlines and the legions of Heat haters happy. Heat fans will rightfully counter this is one relatively meaningless game. And they’re right, this one game doesn’t matter. Rather, what should worry Heat fans is how…
