On Love and the Cavaliers

This is sort of about basketball, but mostly about not basketball. Dion Waiters and the Oklahoma City Thunder played against the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Sunday. Waiters was unsurprisingly and unwarrantedly booed, which feels approximately appropriate given his Philadelphia upbringing. Dion has talked some mess since being traded and ruffled some feathers long before that, but his...

Dribbles: LeBron, Cavs 'pump it up' in rolling by Thunder

CLEVELAND -- Random dribbles from the Cavaliers' impressive 108-98 win over the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday: 1. A lot of things are going very well for the Cavs these days.

Dion Waiters didn't work for the Cavs, and here's why

Dion Waiters shoots too much, and the Cavaliers were OK with that. What the Cavs and coach David Blatt wanted was for Waiters to shoot, well, differently. Now, none of this is meant to indict the Cavs or Waiters, who returns to Cleveland today as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder (3:30 p.m., ABC). Waiters averaged 13.7 points for the Cavs in two-and-half seasons. The Cavs thought...
