Waiting For Next Year:
Wait, we’re not tired of the “taking my [blank] to [blank]” jokes yet, are we?
The struggling Cleveland Cavaliers (6-9) must go to Miami where they will face the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Heat (11-5).
In some ways, both teams are having similar starts to their seasons as they had last year. The Cavaliers started off showing some spunk, winning games here and there, threatening the .500 mark, before the wheels came off.
The Heat started off better this year than they did last year, but they come limping into their first game with Cleveland, a team not exactly having things go as smoothly as they had hoped.
Of course, we all remember what happened in last year’s December 2nd matchup. The Heat sparked their season back into form and never looked back. The Cavaliers never looked back either. They just allowed defeat into their hearts and went on to set an NBA record losing streak.
So what’s going to happen this time? Will the results be the same? Probably. Look, the Heat are ...

LeBron James seems like a bright guy, despite never going to college. He even joked about it at a news conference back when he was with the Cavaliers. James pled ignorance, though, when asked if Sunday's 91-82 loss to the middling Bucks qualified as a "clunker." "I don't even know what that means," James said, according to FOX Sports. Well, according to...
James has returned to the role in which he's most accustomed -- being his team's undisputed No. 1 option.
I’m tired of “Big 3′s”. Not just the concept, but also the term. Making it part of our basketball vernacular has created an environment where it’s become completely acceptable and normal for three superstars from different cities to create and force situations that result in teaming up and playing together… something which would have never happened in your father’s...
The Cleveland Cavaliers have dropped 4 games in a row. I guess you can say Cleveland is on a losing streak. The Cavs have been guilty of turning the ball over and making bad decisions passing the ball. Tonight if Cleveland is going to win against the New York Knicks they simply have to stop making mistakes. Sure the Cavaliers are a young team with Rookies Kyrie Irving and Tristan...
Chris Bosh scored 17 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, LeBron James added 18 and the Miami Heat survived another shaky offensive night to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 92-85 on Tuesday night. Bosh made 10 of 16 shots and reached the 30-point mark for the fourth time this season for Miami, which improved to 4-1 against Cleveland since James joined the Heat.
Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole had specialized cheat sheets awaiting them for practices and shoot-arounds, similar to what quarterbacks wear.
Chris Bosh scored a season-high 35 points and the Miami Heat won another game without Dwyane Wade, holding off the Cleveland Cavaliers, 92-85, on Tuesday.
MIAMI (AP) Chris Bosh scored 17 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter, LeBron James added 18 and the Miami Heat survived
another shaky offensive night to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 92-85 on Tuesday night.
The Cavaliers didn’t play any D as the Hawks shot 55.4% from the floor last Saturday Night in Atlanta. Kyrie Irving (18 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 blocked shot) and Tristan Thompson (16 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal) led the way for the Cavs in this game. Alonzo Gee (14 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist), Ramon Sessions (13 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 steal...
Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole were on the floor together for the final five minutes of the game, when the Heats offense was at its best.
The Cavaliers were locked up in a dogfight with the Heat on South Beach, but Chris Bosh helped Miami pull away late, handing Cleveland the tough 92-85 loss on Tuesday night. Kyrie Irving led the Cavs with 17 points.
This is what we told you to expect — Dwyane Wade could play if he had to, but coach Erik Spoelstra and the Heat are going to keep their powder dry against the lowly Detroit Pistons. Wade traveled with the team to Detroit, took part in shootaround and worked hard but is not going to…
