Healthy Mike Miller To Replace Shawn Marion In Starting Lineup For Cavs

Mike Miller

Mike Miller has missed the last seven games with lingering effects of a concussion. He notched four DNP-CDs before that, and is averaging just 12.2 minutes per game. Fortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, though, the sharp-shooting veteran is always ready when his name is called. Healthy enough to play for the first time since December 4, Miller will take the place of Shawn Marion as a starter in the Cavs’ game against the Brooklyn Nets tonight. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Brendan Haywood On The Cavs, LeBron, Playing With MJ, His Contract & More

Brendan Haywood

Being comfortable in one’s skin can be a difficult task, but veteran center Brendan Haywood from the Cleveland Cavaliers has mastered the art. He’s a throwback type of center. You know, the type that likes to rebound, block shots and stay close to the basket. He’s a contributor not a complainer and never worries about what he isn’t. Instead, he focuses on what he is, and how he can help his team. Read More »

LeBron James Hasn’t Lost A Step; He Was Just Getting Comfortable

LeBron James

We fell for it. Early season struggles of the Cleveland Cavaliers led us to believe that LeBron James might have lost a step as his 30th birthday approaches. That was wrong, it was knee-jerk, and we like to believe we’re better than that. A month of play is never enough to glean big picture concerns about a veteran’s performance, especially when he’s playing for a new team. It was obvious then, but narrative got in the way of logic. And three weeks removed from Cleveland’s nadir, The King has made it even more obvious now. Read More »

At times, it seemed too easy for LeBron James last night. When his jumper is falling, and it was falling with the Hornets in town, there’s not much an opponent can do except try and contest those jumpers ripping nylon from all over. Except, James didn’t start the game off looking for his own shot. Read More »

LeBron James Banner

Through 22 games, the Cleveland Cavaliers are only 13-9. While that’s a long way from the world beaters many thought they’d become with the additions of LeBron James and Kevin Love in the offseason, James is still averaging 25.5 points, 7.6 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, though he’s got the lowest PER and true shooting percentage since he was back in Cleveland. A new mix, “What I’ve done,” reminds fans and haters alike of his accolades as we figure out if he’ll be able to lead the Cavs to glory. Read More »

LeBron James is almost 30 years-old. He missed last night’s game against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder with nagging knee pain.

Kevin Durant Says It “Would’ve Been Cool” To Go Against LeBron

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

The public didn’t get to see a LeBron JamesKevin Durant head-to-head battle last night, which we’re guessing TNT was planning when they put the Cavs-Thunder game on their schedule. Instead, with James resting his knee, it became a Kyrie Irving and Russell Westbrook show before KD took over down the stretch. But James did get a chance to visit with his friend and offseason workout partner after the game, he just had to wait before getting clearance. Read More »

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

Through three quarters during Thursday night’s Cavs-Thunder matchup on TNT, Kevin Durant was a quiet 3-of-9 from the field for 11 points. His minutes are restricted after coming back from a Jones fracture that kept him out of OKC’s first 17 games, and its affected his rhythm. But when the Cavs came storming back to cut the Thunder’s lead to four with two minutes remaining, the 2014 MVP scored eight points in the final two minutes, including a pair of impressive buckets.
