Anderson Varejao, Kyrie Irving

He was named the 2014 FIBA World Cup MVP, he signed a max extension with the Cavaliers this summer, and he just inherited two all-star teammates in LeBron James and Kevin Love immediately catapulting the Cavs to the top title odds for the 2014-15 NBA season. It’s all coming out roses for Kyrie Irving right now, and that includes this spinning fall-away during Cleveland’s exciting open scrimmage last night. Read More »

It’s only Wednesday during the fist week of training camp and Kyrie Irving has already put it between his legs for a patented LeBron James tomahawk jam. The Cavs held an open scrimmage for the public yesterday and it wasn’t just that sick Kyrie-to-LeBron connection they showed off. 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 »

Us And Them: A History Of The Term “The Big Three”

Kevin Love, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving

Now that Kevin Love has joined forces with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving in Cleveland, NBA fans can rest easy that this season will not pass by (in fact, the real worry might be how many minutes can pass by) without hearing the words “The Big Three.” Read More »

Dion Waiters On Bradley Beal’s Best Backcourt Talk: “That’s Nonsense”

Dion Waiters

There’s a fine line between confidence and hubris. The great players routinely toe it, careful not to cross and fall victim to the pitfalls of brash and outright arrogance. Dion Waiters isn’t and he doesn’t, two realities that led to him butting heads with Kyrie Irving and the rest of his teammates in a toxic Cleveland Cavaliers locker room over the past two years. But Waiters maintains he has a new attitude this season, and is primed for big things on the court given that new maturation and a summer of diligent training. For his pointed dig at the Washington Wizards’ John Wall and Bradley Beal to hold weight, though, Waiters will need to do far more than say all of the right things. Read More »

LeBron: Kyrie Irving “Can Be The Pest Point Guard In the League Very Soon”

Kyrie Irving, LeBron James

LeBron James’ affection for Northeast Ohio knows no bounds, but he surely would not have returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers if he didn’t believe his hometown team could immediately compete for a championship with him in tow. So it’s not surprising that James would hold Cavs cornerstone Kyrie Irving in extremely high-esteem.
