While LeBron Looks Adrift, Stephen A. Smith Stupidly Says LeBron Will Split

LeBron James

The Cavs looked dreadful again on Tuesday night, similar to their lackluster performance against the Knicks to start the season. LeBron James, especially, seemed disinterested in competing when the Blazers made their run in the second half to put the game away. But James tells Brian Windhorst of ESPN what might look like apathy on his part is actually his new leadership style, one where he sits back and hopes his teammates learn their team-first lesson the hard way.

LeBron James Says He “Won’t Allow” Star-Studded Cavaliers To Be Selfish

Kevin Love, LeBron James

It’s only two games, but the star-studded Cleveland Cavaliers have hardly been the free-wheeling, ball-sharing offensive juggernaut that so many predicted early in the 2014-2015 season. LeBron James and company have managed merely average offense thus far; their 103.4 offensive rating ranks 14th in the league. Half of that mediocrity, of course, is due to the season-opening outlier in which the four-time MVP played one of the worst games of his career and Cleveland scored just 90 points. But even the Cavs’ 114-108 overtime win over the defensive-oriented Chicago Bulls on Halloween didn’t spell offensive harmony. Read More »

Smith, or the highlights of Dwyane Wade, but despite the mawkishness, this new mix by David Golic does an excellent job summarizing this transitional period in Wade’s career, his emphasis on being a dad, the loss of LeBron James this summer, and moving on this season.

LeBron James

It’s a testament to LeBron James and his ability to rehabilitate his image and add to his already MVP-level game after the original decision in 2010 because NBA writers weren’t calling him a choke artist when the he fell flat in Cleveland’s home opener against the Knicks on Thursday. James’ resiliency was also on display when he bounced back to score eight of his 36 points in overtime during a 114-108 win in Chicago last night. His performance included a pretty spectacular 180-degree layup on Pau Gasol, too. Read More »
