Video: Kevin Love Smokes Milwaukee Sans LeBron James & Kyrie Irving

Kevin Love

Kyrie Irving is resting a janky ankle; LeBron James is taking a respite after his emotionally taxing trip to Brazil against his former ‘mates in Miami. That left Kevin Love alone and the supporting cast against the Bucks last night and their rookie sensation, Jabari Parker. It wasn’t a problem, though, with Love leading the Cavs to a 106-100 win.

Chris Bosh Says Playing For Cavs Will Be “Very Difficult” For Kevin Love

Kevin Love, Chris Bosh

Basketball isn’t played on paper. Point guards aren’t pitchers, and centers aren’t goalies. It’s always remiss to expect players on new squads or just-formed super-teams to enjoy the success basic talent levels suggest. The 2007-2008 Boston Celtics are the exception to the rule; the 2010-2011 Miami Heat and certainly 2012-2013 Los Angeles Lakers are the norm. Read More »

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for Saturday’s exhibition game against the Miami Heat. Instead of worrying about Chris Bosh not talking to LeBron James or even Kyrie Irving’s walking boot, though, the majority of the team took to the beach for some rest before the grind of the regular season begins later this month.

Go Behind The Scenes Of Cavaliers Practice With NBA’s Phantom Cam

LeBron James

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers might be the league newest super-team, but they certainly have work to do to meet expectations. Talent is never enough in the NBA – champions have chemistry, cohesion, and continuity forged by years of trials and tribulations. Perennial contenders like the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, and even Chicago Chicago Bulls have built those attributes over the past few seasons. James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and company have training camp to do so before the scrutiny begins and games start to matter. Read More »

Kevin Love got in on the action with a strip and easy two-handed slam on the other end, showcasing just how dangerous this contemporary iteration of the Big Three can look. Read More »

Chris Paul, Steph Curry, Blake Griffin

When Stephen Curry said he was a better offensive player than LeBron James, a lot of people guffawed. The fidelity of Steph’s answer can be debated — personally, we think it’s closer than most believe, and of course he’d choose himself — but the premise is an interesting way of looking at the game: Who exactly are the best offensive players in the NBA?
