Cleveland Cavaliers should be concerned

The Cleveland Cavaliers are winning as expected. With a series sweep over the Boston Celtics, the team can look forward to their next opponent. Now, credit should be given to the Celtics. They played hard and did not let the Cavaliers walk over them. That for a fact is evident as Evan Turner drove in the paint late in the 4th quarter on Thursday night in what was a foolish attempt...

WATCH: JR Smith ejected for hitting Jae Crowder in face

The Cleveland Cavaliers may very well sweep the Boston Celtics, but it’s uncertain whether the team will be at full strength when they start their second-round series against an unnamed opponent.

Undeniable proof the refs are favoring the Cavaliers

Kendrick Perkins was assessed a flagrant one for this cheap shot and a double technical foul given to both Crowder and Perkins. Apparently, the officials didn’t like the way Crowder responded to taking TWO shots to the face. If Perk pulled this stunt back in 2010, he would have been ejected and suspended. But when you are teammates with the Chosen One, no blood, no foul. (h/t SB Nation)

The Playoffs Will Set Kevin Love Free

For much of the 2014-2015 NBA season, I felt like Kevin Love’s dad. No, I wasn’t stuffing notes into his brown bag lunch that read “Packed you Gushers today, kiddo!” or consoling him after whiffing on a penalty kick during community soccer, but I was concerned about him in a way that felt paternal. Maybe it was how he almost instantly became a distant third in the Big 3 friendship...

Watch: LeBron James and Dwight Howard hit full-court shots

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James can score from just about anywhere on the court, even from 60 feet out. James, apparently, likes to shoot from the corner at the very far end of the court, and throws the ball like Tom Brady.   But James isn’t the only one that can launch a ball 60 feet out and make a basket. Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard matched James shot on Saturday.

WATCH: LeBron James hits full-court shot after practice

LeBron James never ceases to entertain or amaze. If you don’t believe me, just consider what he does after shoot-a rounds and practices. Take this shot for example. We don’t know how many attempts LeBron took before hitting this one, but suffice to say most of us would blow our arms out before successfully converting a full-court shot like this.
