Cynics say so, but Gregg Popovich thinks that’s a belief driven by media-helmed narrative. In advance of his team’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight, the reigning Coach of the Year defended James by holding reporters responsible for scrutiny constantly facing the four-time MVP.

Kyrie Irving took over early in the fourth with his Cavs down 19, outpacing the C’s 13-4. He then told LeBron James, “Be aggressive.” Welp, James asked for it, and he proceeded to outscore the entire Celtics team, 10-7, in the game’s last six minutes to help the Cavs come back from that huge fourth quarter deficit and win, 122-121.

Kevin Love Denies That Silly Lakers Rumor & The “Joint” Handshake With Kyrie Irving

Kevin Love, Jrue Holiday

Since the Cavs had almost a full work week off following their win over the Pellies on Monday night, rumors have run rampant about Kevin Love. First there was that Lakers tidbit buttressed by barely a kernel of evidence in Sam Smith’s heavily maligned piece, then Love and Kyrie Irving performed a Rasta handshake after the win on Monday, which Cleveland brass explained in a pretty lame way. Love somehow combined the two similarly idiotic stories when recently asked about the Lakers rumor. Read More »

LeBron James Says He’s Excited To Play In Boston: “I Love A Little Adversity”

LeBron James

You might think that LeBron James would rather not play on the road against the Boston Celtics. Though The King has had no problems dispatching of Bean Town’s team since 2010, the green and gold faithful are still among sports’ most overtly passionate fans, and no player gets them riled up like LeBron. Instead of being bothered by the animosity he faces at TD Garden, though, James insists he relishes it. Read More »

At the conclusion of Cleveland’s 118-110 victory over the Pelicans on Monday, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love engaged in a complicated victory handshake that appeared to end with an homage to toking on a spliff.

Anthony Bennett Says He Can Now “See What Plays The Coach Wants To Run”

Anthony Bennett

Anthony Bennett had one of the worst rookie seasons of any No. 1 overall pick in NBA history. Offseason shoulder surgery meant he came into camp out of shape. He vacillated between both forward spots during a chaotic year in Cleveland, and shot more three-pointers than necessary, while only connecting on 24.5 percent of them because it’s likely he couldn’t even see the rim from 24 feet out.

The Cavs came back to beat the Pelicans, 118-111, last night to avoid losing their second consecutive game at Quicken Loans Arena.
