Paul George Says Cavs Are Eastern Conference “Front-Runners”

Paul George, LeBron James

It wasn’t long ago that the Indiana Pacers were considered the best team in the NBA. Paul George and company opened the 2013-2014 season a scorching 16-1, leading some to wonder if they had a realistic chance at winning 70 games.

George doesn’t disagree, either, recently calling James’ Cavaliers “front-runners.” Read More »

Joakim Noah, Nene

With one Sports Illustrated essay, the entire hierarchy in the Eastern Conference was destroyed.

The Miami Heat, the champions of the Eastern Conference for the last four seasons, lost their best player. The Cleveland Cavaliers, an Eastern Conference laughing stock for the last four years, instantly became Las Vegas’ favorites to win the championship next year, and between all that, a number of other teams improved as well.

Paul George Says The Pacers Forgot Their Edge Last Season

Paul George

The Indiana Pacers might have reached the Eastern Conference Finals for the second consecutive season in 2014, but long before the Miami Heat rolled them 4-2 in the best-of-seven series, they had so many chinks in their armor, it might as well have been a loincloth.
