Joe Tait was the Cleveland Cavaliers broadcaster for four decades, starting with when the NBA first dropped an expansion team in Cleveland to try and slow the growth of the ABA.

26-year old small forward LeBron James put up good numbers in the regular season last year, but he disappeared for the most part in the NBA Finals. He remains the King without a ring! James played in 79 games (all starts) for the Heat last year and he averaged 38.8 minutes, 26.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He has now played in 627 games (626 starts...
NBA superstars will bring Homecoming Tour to Izod Center on Dec. 10
I have not been so enraged… well… since 2 hours ago. Bad enough, the NBA Lockout is marching forward, harder and more blindly than Picket’s charge, LeBron has to keep himself in the headlines regardless of the hurt it inflicts on others.

To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…
Before LeBron James landed in Cleveland, Lamond Murray was leading the Cavaliers in scoring from the small forward position. WFNY catches up with the recently retired NBA player to see where his life has led him since his days on the shores of Lake Erie.
The Kobe Bryant versus LeBron James thing is still somewhat up for debate. However the Michael Jordan versus Kobe Bryant thing has already been decided long, long time ago and thanks to UNDRCRWN that argument now has a t-shirt too.
See it in white below.
Q: Does a shortened free agency period help or hurt Heat? — Jason.
A: I don’t think it “helps” anyone, but it’s a lot more comforting when you already have LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh under contract. It will be a bit tougher with Mario Chalmers a restricted free agent, if he waits to solicit outside offers. But if he takes the Heat’s qualifying offer or...
