Dion Waiters

Syracuse alum and all-around IDGAF shooting guard Dion Waiters was asked on Twitter today if he was comfortable accepting a role coming off the bench.

Shaq Provides Context To LeBron’s Move On Instagram

Shaquille O'Neal

Shaquille O’Neal played 19 seasons in the NBA and suited up for six different teams in the process. Though he’ll be best remembered for his days with the Los Angeles Lakers, O’Neal came to superstardom with the Orlando Magic and won an additional title with the neighboring Miami Heat.

As LeBron James takes some heat for returning to Cleveland, Shaq provided some clever, self-deprecating context to that decision and the state of The King’s career. Read More »

Dwyane Wade: “LeBron Made The Right Decision”

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

Perhaps chief among the many reasons it was broadly assumed that LeBron James would re-sign with the Miami Heat this summer was because of his relationship with Dwyane Wade.
