Tanking doesn’t mean losing on purpose. It means making organizational decisions that prevent a team from fielding the most competitive lineup possible.

That’s three times since LeBron James left Cleveland it has won the lottery. That’s a lot of Karma.

You know exactly who will land the No. 1 pick, and you know exactly why. The NBA’s motives are crystal clear. Just watch.

After a 33-49 season where he did not connect with Kyrie Irving, you had to know this was coming.

This isn’t a surprise, Griffin was considered a front runner. Once this is decided the Cavs need to decide about coach Mike Brown.

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.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

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…

You know the game is a blowout when one of the league’s worst free throw shooters gets to take a technical foul shot.
Mar 17, 2014, 3:00 AM EST
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…

Evan Turner wasn’t initially that fond of the Sixers new GM, but he may have changed his mind on his way out of town.

As if his season hasn’t been a big enough disappointment, Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett will miss at least 10 games with a knee strain.

The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.
Mar 6, 2014, 12:14 PM EST
The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a game it was Jan. 29 in Boston. Since then the Sixers have lost 15 in a row, by an average of 19.8 points a game (a couple 40+ point losses skew that number). Coach Brett Brown is not sure his team will win another game this season…

The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

With the Miami Heat next up on the schedule, the New York Knicks are looking to bring in some guys who can defend on the perimeter. As opposed to what they have now which is essentially orange traffic cones to dribble around on your way to the lane. Enter Earl Clark (who we told you…
Feb 25, 2014, 5:12 PM EST
The New York Knicks are looking for defensive help. As they should be if you’ve watched any of their games recently. Which is why they are close to bringing in free agent Earl Clark. A deal is near, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The New York Knicks are finalizing an agreement with free-agent forward…
