J.R. Smith Knows He Had Little To Do With Kyrie Irving’s 55 Points (Pic)

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.

Not a bad night for Kyrie Irving. After scoring a career-high 28 points in the first half of Wednesday’s contest, the 22 year-old was nearly as hot throughout quarters three and four – and even hotter when it mattered most. Watch Irving drill a go-ahead three-pointer with just over six seconds remaining that gave his team a 99-94 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Read More »

Who needs LeBron James? Well, when Kyrie Irving scores 28 first half points, perhaps not even the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Report: Cavaliers “Lost Faith” Early In Season Due To Roster Makeup

Timofey Mozgov, J.R. Smith, LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers weren’t the super-team so many expected them to be over the first half of 2014-2015. Given the team’s play since a pair of midseason and the return of LeBron James from injury, it might still have a chance to live up to that billing. If not for those roster shuffles, however, the Cavaliers apparently believe their November and December struggles would have persisted. Read More »

Report: Cavs Openly Questioning Their Coach As Cleveland Drama Drags On

David Blatt, Kyrie Irving

Fun fact: a LeBron James team hasn’t been under .500 this late in the season since his rookie (2003-04) year. That’s mind-boggling when you consider the personnel in Cleveland. A recent report from Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com sheds some light on their interteam snafus, and reveals that Cavs players have been openly questioning — to opponents even — the tactics employed by first-year head coach David Blatt — he who was ushered to the sideline last night in a somewhat aggressive move by ‘Bron.

Report: LeBron James Has Been Hurt For “Some Time”

LeBron James

While LeBron James has put up similar numbers to year’s past, when he claimed four MVP awards, the explosiveness he’s known for and his high-flier act has only come in small doses this season upon his return to Cleveland. With the news he’s shutting it down for the next two weeks to rest an aching knee and back, coach David Blatt was asked about his star player’s health, and admitted James has been battling injuries longer than most even knew.
