Is LeBron James Worried About The Cavaliers? The King Says “RELAX”

LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-3. They look lost and selfish on offense and flat-out lazy on defense. Tension is already close to boiling over, and the sacrifices necessary for success aren’t being made. But is LeBron James worried? No way.

Scoring Celebrations: When The NBA & NFL Collide

Jimmy Graham

The NFL season is finally upon us. We’ve had a couple of weeks to break in the new Madden and we’re all sitting atop the standings in fantasy football (unless, of course, you started Brandon Weeden).

Rondo changes his game to spark Boston’s Super Bowl Sunday win

Rajon Rondo

Here’s the thing: Just because Rajon Rondo doesn’t score a lot, it doesn’t mean he can’t score. So we don’t always have to act surprised when Rondo gets buckets, like he did during yesterday’s Boston win over Orlando that served as the main Super Bowl appetizer … The Magic did what the scouting report said, sticking close to Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and forcing Rondo to look for his own shot. So considering he has a lethal first step, some of tightest handles in the League, and maybe the NBA’s best court vision, Rondo did what he’s supposed to do: Get into the lane and get layups.
