At least Dwight didn’t say he was hacked. I am not sure why he is apologizing for though, if that is how he feels, that is how he feels. I can see apologize for making a political comment he didn’t mean to make, but how can you offend someone with your belief? It would be like apologizing for being Catholic to a Jewish person, you can’t control how others feel about an issue...
After missing out on Chris Bosh, the Rockets were left with some extra cash. They are using it on Trevor Ariza:
The Houston Rockets have agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with Trevor Ariza, @USATODAYsports has learned.

After not being able to land Carmelo Anthony, the Bulls were determined to not miss out completely on the free agency fun.
It hasn't been easy. After meditating it a lot I've chosen to play with the Chicago Bulls. Looking forward to this new chapter of my career

It won’t be via a sign and trade though.
Bulls in the process of finalizing...
The world knows that LeBron is returning to Cleveland. Now we know the financials:

It looks like James is mindful of the new TV contract coming up in two years that will expand the salary cap. It is...
Golden Boy Promotions has a ton riding on tonight’s fight between Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara. With Floyd Mayweather half way out the door it is up to Canelo to be the cash cow for GBP and a second loss in 2 years would surely sidetrack his journey towards superstardom.
Canelo was dominant in his last fight against Alfredo Angulo, an opponent Lara struggled against, but Angulo...
It’s that time of year where the alternate helmets will be rolling out left and right. Here his Akron’s new alternate helmet that was released a little while ago.
It’s simple but nice. It is also nice to give a little shine to a smaller school. Solid effort Akron.
You think the gold chrome was sharp…take a look at the white! We will have both helmets this year! #GoZips pic...
Charles Barkley isn’t the only person that thinks LeBron James going back to Cleveland was the right thing to do. It seems that’s the general consensus amongst everyone except maybe actual Heat fans. Clippers coach Doc Rivers has come forward to show his support for James’ return to the Cavs. According to Doc, the move is “good for the NBA.”
Unfortunately your browser does...
Here is what Wade had to say…..
Dwyane Wade releases statement. In part: "LeBron made the right decision for himself and his family because home is where the heart is."

Wade: "As an organization, a community, & as individuals, we achieved the goals that we set when we 1st signed together. We are champions...
Lost in the madness of LeBron going home and Carmelo taking his time, was the first matchup between Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins as pros.
NBA.com provided video of the matchup via the excellent phantom cam angle.
LeBron James will not only be competing with 29 other NBA teams to win a title, but he can also add one NFL team to the mix in the Cleveland Browns.
Browns cornerback Joe Haden dropped the challenge when he said his team will compete with LeBron’s Cavaliers to bring the first championship for the city of Cleveland since the Browns in 1964.
“LeBron makes things happen pretty quickly...
Hoopmixtape put together this awesome blend of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving highlights that should give Cavs fans a preview of the explosive, jaw dropping plays we all will be witness to this coming season.
Are they now the best duo in the NBA?
You be the judge.
The Chicago Bulls look like the favorites to win the Eastern Conference to many, especially if Derrick Rose returns to original form. After two straight seasons of suffering with knee injuries, many are hoping there is at least just a small glimpse from the Rose of old.
Reports have came out throughout the offseason that Rose is looking like the MVP version of his old self. However...
Well if it make Knicks fans happy, Carmelo Anthony is taking less money to help bring the a championship to New York.
Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Anthony and the Knicks are putting the finishing touches on a five-year, $120 million deal.
Anthony considered the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets before deciding to re-sign. He notified the other teams...
Nike was set to release the LeBron 11 “Championship” pack, but unfortuantely LBJ’s Miami Heat fell in five games to the San Antonio Spurs during the NBA Finals.
Reports came out that Nike could still release the shoes, but possibly as an “Iron Man” colorway or something along those lines. However, it looks like Nike may not even be doing that.
Thanks to LeBron returning...
Shaq defends LeBron James on his Instagram after some folks got upset about him switching back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. I must say this is quite funny.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel’s front page sums up the feeling on South Beach now that LeBron James has left Miami for Cleveland. There hasn’t been ridiculous frenzy over James’ decision, but ever so often, something like this pops up.
Hopefully, Heat fans will be over the hurt by the time the Cavs play the Heat in Miami.

As large as Ronda Rousey currently is she’s still not on the level of Gina Carano. Carano was the face of women’s MMA and after a 5 year hiatus Gina is now ready to return to the cage.
Carano’s last fight was against Cris Cyborg and was the only loss of her career. After that she used her notoriety to start an acting career and hasn’t looked back… until now.
It seems in the end the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers may simply end up swapping power forwards. Marc Stein is reporting that the talented forward is nearing a deal with the Miami Heat.
ESPN sources also say that Miami is making progress in its pursuit of Luol Deng to team him with Chris Bosh and soon-to-reupped Dwyane Wade

This pickup by the Oklahoma City Thunder may go under the radar because of the movement of other players with a higher profile, but Anthony Morrow is exactly the kind of player they need.
Anthony Morrow has agreed to join the Thunder, giving Oklahoma City a 3-point shooter and depth on the wing. Story coming soon.

Enjoy, if you are into Russian women….
Just a matter of hours until Carmelo Anthony informs the Knicks of his return on a five-year deal, as @FisolaNYDN reported this week.
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 12, 2014
In the end, I can’t fault Melo for taking as much cash as possible and hoping that Phil Jackson has some magic that will make the Knicks competitive in the future.
I have my doubts,...
There’s no shortage of comedians in the world. Your favorite high school English teacher took it upon themselves to grade the letter LeBron James wrote explaining to everyone why he was returning home to Cleveland.
Jameis Winston and his dad have been saying for a while now that Jameis planned on earning his degree from Florida State. Most people including myself have laughed this off. Now Jameis is talking about it again and is pretty convincing:
“It’s very important to me. I was always raised as a student first and an athlete second,” Winston said to NFL.com in regards to earning...
Without Chris Bosh, the Heat would have been in a world of trouble. With Bosh and presumably D Wade, they should be competitive in the EAST.
Bosh took to Instagram and Twitter to let you know he is still riding with HEAT Nation.
Ready for the next challenge in my career. #HeatNation goes on! pic.twitter.com/tAFXFSLTCk

Looks like Skylar Grey had some free time on her hand, so she remixed her chorus from “I’m Coming Home” for LeBron.
