This wouldn’t be the big name hire that lures LeBron James back to Cleveland.
The Cavaliers have asked permission to speak with Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Alvin Gentry, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on Thursday. One source with knowledge of the coaching search wouldn’t confirm the report, but said the Cavs have not interviewed any candidates yet.
Everyone’s favorite NBA analyst (save for the “husky” women of San Antonio), Charles Barkley, went on ESPN radio’s Waddle & Silvy Show today to talk some basketball, and during the course of the interview, reiterated his intentions to become a GM when his contract with TNT expires in two years. From The Score… I think people know I wanna be a GM and I’m going to be...
NBA Draft Lottery sensation Mallory Eden is becoming a household name. She stole the show with her smile and positive energy during Tuesday nights broadcast.
Being the daughter of the Milwaukee Bucks owner would surely make her a Bucks fan, right?
Well, apparently she’s a Knicks fan after all.

One of the biggest ongoing debates in all of sports is whether or not the NCAA should pay its student athletes for their services. But one thing that is constantly overshadowed is the lack of rights that student athletes have after they sign their letters of intent.
For example, when a coach decides to leave an institution for whatever reason, they are allowed to do so with no dispute...
I’m going to go out on a limb and say this Mallory Edens Bucks hoodie is fake. The daughter of the Bucks owner became internet famous during the NBA Draft Lottery when everyone became aware of who she is.
Either way it is pretty funny that someone put this together.

For some reason, the random mixed gender hyptothetical fight between Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey keeps coming up. Dana White had some interesting comments about it today during the pre-UFC 173 Ultimate Media Day:
“You take a street fight, Ronda wins that fight and hurts him badly,” White said. “You do an MMA fight, same result. Boxing match, Floyd Mayweather chews her...
Nerlens Noel has picked a time for his debut. The former Kentucky standout will play in the Orlando summer league, which will be his first action since he laced them up for the Wildcats:

This catch Yasiel Puig made today against the New York Mets will undoubtedly be among the plays of the year when this season reaches its conclusion.
It’s well documented how frustrating the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder can be at times, but when he makes spectacular plays like this all is forgiven, at least temporarily.

#Cowboys feel he’s a top @NFL backup. Simply want him to show up. If not, they’re gonna make him pay back $3M in signing bonus. #standoff
Sometimes you say things and they just are taken the wrong way. This might be one of those times. Reds Brandon Phillips tried his best to describe the pep talk that Manager Brian Price gave them to inspire a 2-1 comeback. Here is what he said word for word:
“He was like, ‘Come on, guys. Y’all know we can do this. We can do this. Let’s stand up for Cincinnati,’” Phillips...
L.A. Clippers star forward Blake Griffin loves to dunk, so you can imagine the delight of stumbling upon each and every one of Griffin’s poster like finishes during the 2013-14 season.
They’re in no particular order, so you take the time to order them from best to worst.

Two reasons why KG would come back.
1- KG loves to play basketball.
2- He’s owed $12 million.
Here is what CBS Sports breakdown on why KG is looking to return.
Garnett has nothing left to prove in this league, but has wanted to make one more run for a second title. There have been questions about whether this would be KG’s last year, questions Garnett himself has not answered...
Good luck with that and frankly this maybe the reason Scott isn’t hired. He should have kept this to himself.

If you are an athlete headed up to the club, it is best to walk away from any altercation. Better than being the next contestant on the Roger Goodell hit list.

According to documents reviewed by CBS4, Ward is wanted in connection with an incident that took place May 9 which is categorized both as an assault and disturbing the peace.

Could Florida head coach Billy Donovan be on the move? Earlier today, news was swirling about Billy Donovan talking to NBA teams again when he had this to say:
“I have spoken to a couple NBA teams, and that’s all I’m going to say,” Donovan said. “It’s always flattering, but at the same time, I’ve always said that I’m very happy here and like it here.”
Atlanta Falcons pass rusher Osu Umenyiora weighed in on the Mark Cuban bigotry topic on Thursday, and the former Giants pass rusher agreed with the Mavs owner, that he also would cross the street if he saw a black guy with a hoodie approaching.
I understand the point Cuban was trying to make, he just projected it wrong. Depending on what city you’re in or the neighborhood...
Cuban should just probably stop talking now. The hole is just getting deeper for those who don’t have blinders on.
P/1: In hindsight I should have used different examples. I didn't consider the Trayvon Martin family, and I apologize to them for that.
