Kevin Love, Andrew Wiggins

On Saturday the Cavs will take on the Timberwolves in Kevin Love‘s first time back at the Target Center in Minnesota since his headline-grabbing trade to Cleveland over the summer. It’s been a rocky start in the new city, Love wasn’t selected as an All-Star this year, but he tells the Northeast Ohio Media Group’s Chris Haynes he was amused by Minney’s promotional video fake out even though he thinks it’ll “probably be more [booing] than a mix of cheers” when he’s announced before Saturday’s night’s game.

J.R. Smith, Kyrie Irving

We were talking with another basketball writer last night and we both made comments about how much fun J.R. Smith gets out of being a professional basketball player. There are some characteristics he’s missing that could elevate his game to another level, but no one can accuse the man of not having good time, or some semblance of a sense of humor. After Kyrie Irving applauded how “It was a total team effort” following last night’s 55-point eruption, Smith’s reaction — a screen shot of which he posted to Instagram — is a good example why.

Stan Van Gundy Says Pistons Hardly Discussed Kevin Love Before Game

J.R. Smith, Kevin Love

The pair scored 26 of Cleveland’s 28 fourth-quarter points, and Irving matched his season-high with 38. Kevin Love struggled again on offense with just seven points on 3-of-11 shooting, and it was clear from Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy he wasn’t a priority when they were scheming before the game.

Iman Shumpert

It’s always nice to see the self-deprecating side of professional athletes. These people didn’t get where they are without supreme and unwavering confidence, an attribute that clashes the very nature of most human beings. When they let that mindset briefly slip away, our athletic idols become far more relatable. Read More »
