Kyrie Irving is unhappy in Cleveland. That’s not new news. But if he wants an opt out in his max extension this summer then how should Cleveland handle it?

The Cavaliers really do like Scotty Hopson, a 6’7” two guard from Tennessee last seen playing in Turkey. However, they gave him a big deal to set him up as trade bait around the NBA Draft.

The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

On Feb. 5, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Lakers, who literally ran out of players. That was the low point for Cleveland, which had already made its big splash by trading for Luol Deng and still lost six straight to fall to 12th – behind Boston! – in a putrid Eastern Conference. The season…

So you’re saying there’s a chance. If you’re a diehard Cavaliers fan you can believe there is still a chance your team makes the playoffs — Cleveland is 2.5 games back of an eighth-seed Hawks team in free fall, and the Knicks close out the season with seven straight games against +.500 teams. Cleveland needs…

Spencer Hawes tried to tell David West not to pick on his smaller teammate. West, as you might imagine, had no interest in hearing it.

Dion Waiters hit the tough long two as time expired on Wednesday to give his Cavaliers a win over the Pistons. Detroit led by as many as 16 at one point, which was the only thing remarkable about this one save for Waiters hitting the clutch shot. Matthew Delladova was Cleveland’s leading scorer with 21…

That needed a Mutombo finger wag. Much to their credit the Cleveland Cavaliers hung around with the Miami Heat all game — and doing it without Kyrie Irving or Luol Deng. The difference in the game was LeBron James — 25 points in the first quarter and 43 for the game. Plus a couple key…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat. Nobody likes it when their ex-girlfriend walks into the party looking smoking hot. LeBron pretty much did that to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night — he had 25 points in the…

For the next two weeks, eight games, Cleveland Cavaliers’ All-Star Kyrie Irving will be sidelined by a strained bicep, at which point he will be re-evaluated. And when that evaluation happens surgery remains an option. Irving spoke with the media about his injury, suffered Saturday against the Clippers as he tried to strip the ball…

It was an innocent play, Kyrie Irving was trying to strip Blake Griffin of the ball on an offensive rebound (the ball hit Griffin in the face and he tried to sell that as a foul). The force of Griffin coming down (and the fact he’s made out of granite) and Kyrie Irving’s arm going…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made the playoff their firm goal, started poorly, traded for Luol Deng, fired their general manager, re-affirmed their playoff priority and backed it up by trading for Spencer Hawes. By winning the first two games of their current road trip – at Phoenix, at Golden State – the Cavaliers finally looked like…
