Cleveland’s 5 Worst Mistakes Since LeBron Left

Anthony Bennett

On July 8, 2010, LeBron James told the nation, on national television mind you, that he would be taking his “talents” to South Beach. The rest is history: LeBron went on to reach the NBA Finals three straight years, winning both of the last two seasons, and has a strong chance of three-peating this season. Cleveland went into depression; the Cavs tied the longest losing streak in professional sports (26 games, the longest in NBA history), and Cavs owner Dan Gilbert went crazy ex-girlfriend on us, publicly scorning LeBron for leaving a city that he has no actual connection to (LeBron is from Akron, not Cleveland… something many forget through all this).

The Top 10 Candidates For NBA Sixth Man Of The Year This Season

Manu Ginobili

Being a great sixth man is all about energy. Currently, the NBA’s Sixth Man award’s criteria is quite simple: a player must play more games coming off the bench than they start. The rule has no minutes per game requirements. Why is this important? Last year, J.R. Smith won the award playing 32.5 minutes a game, which was second most on his team. Essentially it doesn’t matter if you’re a key guy on your squad — players like Manu Ginobili, Jason Terry and Lamar Odom have all won the award in recent years while being one of the top players on their teams.
