LeBron James Hasn’t Lost A Step; He Was Just Getting Comfortable

LeBron James

We fell for it. Early season struggles of the Cleveland Cavaliers led us to believe that LeBron James might have lost a step as his 30th birthday approaches. That was wrong, it was knee-jerk, and we like to believe we’re better than that. A month of play is never enough to glean big picture concerns about a veteran’s performance, especially when he’s playing for a new team. It was obvious then, but narrative got in the way of logic. And three weeks removed from Cleveland’s nadir, The King has made it even more obvious now. Read More »

Through 22 games, the Cleveland Cavaliers are only 13-9. While that’s a long way from the world beaters many thought they’d become with the additions of LeBron James and Kevin Love in the offseason, James is still averaging 25.5 points, 7.6 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, though he’s got the lowest PER and true shooting percentage since he was back in Cleveland. A new mix, “What I’ve done,” reminds fans and haters alike of his accolades as we figure out if he’ll be able to lead the Cavs to glory. Read More »

Kevin Durant Says It “Would’ve Been Cool” To Go Against LeBron

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love

The public didn’t get to see a LeBron JamesKevin Durant head-to-head battle last night, which we’re guessing TNT was planning when they put the Cavs-Thunder game on their schedule. Instead, with James resting his knee, it became a Kyrie Irving and Russell Westbrook show before KD took over down the stretch. But James did get a chance to visit with his friend and offseason workout partner after the game, he just had to wait before getting clearance. Read More »
