Found February 27, 2014 on The Sports Bank:
With Zydrunas Ilgauskas night, the Cleveland Cavaliers are doing everything they can to try and supplant the Browns as the most pathetic sports franchise in Cleveland. And you thought the infamous “Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video 2″ made Cleveland a laughingstock. We know the Browns are an organization that operates to the tune of Yakety Sax a.k.a. the Benny Hill theme, but the Cavs are right down there beside them. Shout out to Brett Lyons from 670 The Score for catching this. From the Cavaliers website: On Saturday, March 8th, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, one of the most beloved players to ever wear a Cavs uniform, will have his #11 jersey retired and raised to hang in the rafters of Quicken Loans Arena alongside other Cavalier greats. It will become a permanent reflection of what the big “man in the middle” with a big heart has meant to the franchise and Cleveland As the Cavs host the New York Knicks at 7:30 p.m., the night will celebrate and honor the 7-foot-3 inch Lithuanian cent...

WATCH: LeBron, Jimmy Fallon do 'Tonight Show' '80s-style rap video

So Jimmy Fallon continues to roll out the big guests (and lean heavily on them, according to some). Tonight featured Lebron James making an appearance to play some wastepaper basketball with Jimmy in a throwback to some 1980s training video PSA nightmare.

Masked LeBron James leads Miami Heat in rout of New York Knicks

Nothing is slowing down the Heat at this point in the season — not broken noses, not masks and certainly not the broken New York Knicks and their masquerading excuse for a basketball team.

Kevin Love Throws Down Alley-Oop Off Wall (Video)

Maybe Kevin Love was inspired by the show LeBron James put before the All-Star break in his own personal dunk contest. In this video captured by teammate Gorgui Dieng, Love can be see throwing a pass to himself off the wall and throwing down a reverse jam. Very nice for a “sneaky athletic” guy right? h/t ESPN
