Cavs’ Kyrie Irving Finds LeBron James for the 2-Handed Alley-Oop Slam

Kyrie Irving and LeBron James—Cleveland Cavaliers fans are salivating at the thought of this pair in the open court.

They got a taste of it Friday night.

In a preseason matchup with the Dallas Mavericks, Irving floated a one-handed pass to James, who proceeded to flush it down with authority.

Unfortunately, it seems a blocking call might have negated the dunk, but the fans got what they wanted out of the play.

The regular season can’t start soon enough.

LeBron talks about repairing relationship with Dan Gilbert

When LeBron James was weighing this past offseason whether or not he would spurn the Miami Heat and opt to return to play for his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, there was something of an elephant in the room as he pondered his future. And that elephant’s name was Dan Gilbert. When James uttered those now-infamous words, […]

Photo from 2007 LeBron James Skills Academy Is Flooded with Future NBA Stars

Former Memphis Tigers guard/forward Wesley Witherspoon shared this photo from the 2007 LeBron James Skills Academy as a Throwback Thursday, and it’s flooded with future NBA stars. 

A quick glance at the photo reveals a number of familiar faces. On the far left, we see Charlotte’s Kemba Walker standing next to former North Carolina guard Dexter Strickland. Of course, James is in the center, standing next to…Charlotte’s Lance Stephenson (funny how the two would go on to develop a strange rivalry of sorts).

Behind Stephenson stands Detroit’s Greg Monroe. Sitting on the floor are Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins and Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan.

In case you’re interested, here’s a short write-up of the event from Bob Gibbons of All Star Sports, via ESPN Deportes. One line stands out in particular as rather prophetic.

“Stephenson has outstanding potential, but throughout this event, he wanted to dominate the ball and constantly tried to slash to the hoop,” Gibbons wrote. “He made some spectacular plays—and some that were less than spectacular.”

LeBron gives surprising answer on why he couldn’t recruit players to Cleveland

LeBron says he couldn’t get any players to come to Cleveland during his first stint with the Cavs
It’s anyone’s guess when NBA players started recruiting free agents to play for their team. Some NBA fans and analysts will tell you Michael Jordan recruited Dennis Rodman back in the mid ’90s to play for the Chicago Bulls. Others will tell you the Boston Celtics started it with the trio of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Whatever the reason, recruitment of players has become the new norm for the Association. And surprisingly, the game’s best player, LeBron James, couldn’t get anyone to play with him during his first stint in Cleveland.
 
LeBron was also quite open on recruiting: “I recruited (before) I left here, but I just didn’t win nothing so nobody wanted to play with me”

LeBron said during his first stint in CLE, he failed recruiting Michael Redd, Joe Johnson & Chris Bosh. Larry Hughes was the one guy he got

LeBron: Criticism for pick on teammate is ‘stupid’

LeBron James says the criticism he received for accidentally setting a pick on his new teammate, Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova, was “stupid.” The Cavaliers and Miami Heat played a preseason game in Rio de Janeiro last weekend, and the most memorable moment was when James stood in the way of Dellavedova, freeing up space for former teammate Norris Cole to operate. “For non-basketball people,” James said with a smirk, via ESPN.com, “our coverage is for me to show and for Delly (Dellavedova) to go under me and we just didn’t get the call right at the time. Delly was supposed to slide under me and we kind of ran into each other. “So, for non-basketball people, they like to critique everything that I do. It’s stupid.” Dellavedova said the play wasn’t “really anything.” “My family sent me the link of it,” Dellavedova told ESPN.com. “He just showed out (on the ball handler) and I just needed to go under. So, it wasn’t really anything. I mean, you know how the media can

Brian Hoyer wants LeBron to be a Browns fan

It’s not a secret that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is a Dallas Cowboys fan. He has made this known more than once on social media over the years. But Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer apparently isn’t ready to accept Ohio’s native son being a Cowboys fan (via Fox Sports).
He’s (James) a year older than me, the Browns left when he was a kid, too,” said Hoyer, referring to the Browns’ move to Baltimore in 1995. You have to cheer for someone. Hopefully, we can bring him around to it.
Now at 3-2 on the season and with a rather easy upcoming schedule, the Browns may very well become relevant in the National Football League moving forward this season. And with both LeBron as well as Johnny Manziel making noise around the city of Cleveland, it would only make sense for James to become a Browns fan. Then again, Dallas is tied with the San Diego Chargers for the best record in the NFL. Let’s all go ahead right now and root for a Browns-Cowboys Super Bowl. If nothing else, just to s
