Ever since Lebron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to go to Miami, the Cavs have been rebuilding and now almost three years later, they have assembled an excellent group of players. Kyrie Irving is a budding superstar and a franchise player, Dion Waiters is a fantastic secondary scoring option, Tristan Thompson is becoming one of the best rebounders in the NBA and has developed an offensive game and Zeller is a solid big man. With that four man core of first round draft picks, over the last two years, they are definitely on the right track and really only need one more thing to get back to the playoffs, improvement from their young players. That’s it, the pieces are there for a playoff team, especially once Anderson Varejao returns. The following are their young core players and what they need to do to improve in the off-season. If they do them, they could make the playoffs next year.

Sometimes the best slam dunks don't happen during NBA games but before them and that logic is evidenced in the below video of Miami Heat star LeBron James throwing down a sick dunk during a Heat lay-up line.The dunk comes at about the :35 second mark of the video as LeBron does a spinning behind-the-back alley-oop dunk:
LeBron James continues to troll, troll, troll his boat prior to NBA games in the form of some nasty dunks. We wrote about LeBron trolling regarding the dunk contest last week, and he continued to do the same prior to the Heat’s last game. Check out Bron’s basic alley-oop to himself between his legs dunk. No big deal, wouldn’t even register at the dunk contest.
LeBron James is on a monster of a tear, which continued Tuesday with King James scoring a season-high 40 points in a 141-129 double-overtime win over the Sacramento Kings. Forty is a ridiculous number but seems almost pedestrian for superhuman LeBron.
James made 14-of-23 field goals and 11-of-12 free throws in the shootout. He nearly put together another triple-double with 16...
Tweet Earlier this week we gave you video of LeBron James performing a sick dunk in warm-ups that would have registered pretty high scores in a dunk contest. Tuesday before the Heat played the Kings LeBron pulled another amazing dunk out of his bag of tricks, this time going between his legs mid-air with relative ease: [...]
The Big Leagues One fan responds to the King.
Say it isn’t so!?! Unless you have been living in a cave you may have seen video – or live, if you’re extremely lucky – of LeBron James insane pregame dunks. You know the self alley-oop, between-the-legs dunk that have fans wanting more. However, some have criticized him about his resistance with the Slam Dunk contest, [...]The post LeBron James May Quit Pregame Dunk Routines...
Oh, nothing to see here folks. Just LeBron James putting on a little dunk contest prior to the Heat’s game against the Cavs on Sunday. ‘Bron has continually trolled the world about his possible inclusion in the NBA’s dunk contest, and he didn’t participate again this year. After seeing this video of him dunking you can bet this will spark another round of “if only LeBron...

When it rains, it pours for Manti Te’o. Seriously, is there anyone in the world who is having a worse couple of months than this guy? He has gone from the Heisman runner up, to the butt of every sports related joke, and now sliding down draft boards all over the NFL.
Te’o is not know for being extremely impressive athletically, but he definitely...
MIAMI (AP) -- Dwyane Wade got hot down the stretch, and LeBron James missed a layup in the final minute.
Both were huge breaks for the Miami Heat.
James scored 28 points, Wade scored 11 of his 24 in the final five minutes -- when Miami needed him most -- and the Heat extended the NBA's longest current winning streak to 11 games, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 109-105 in a...
