Cavs' summer of Love, and LeBron, already one wild ride

Random thoughts on the Cavaliers' never-ending run of fun and fury: 1. It's been insane. That's really the only way to explain the Cavs' offseason. But when you consider the past four years, and the fact LeBron James has returned to Cleveland, it's been crazy in a good (even great) way. 2. Not long after the season, the Cavs won the NBA Draft lottery -- again...

Wiggins shines, but Cavs fall in summer-league tourney

Andrew Wiggins is getting a somewhat rude welcome to the business side of the NBA, his name swirling in trade rumors less than a month after he was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. But Wiggins clearly isn't allowing all the talk to affect his performance with the Cavaliers' summer-league team in Las Vegas. Wiggins scored 21 points on just five shots, his...

Can UK's long climb to SEC respectability begin in Ohio?

Second-year Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops was back in Ohio two weeks ago, as he almost always is, for the annual youth camp at his high school alma mater, Youngstown Cardinal Mooney. That one was for fun, but Stoops has been coming back to Ohio on plenty of business trips, too. Like, as many as the NCAA allows. Stoops has the very tall task of turning the University of Kentucky...

The Indians' 5 keys to success in the second half

CLEVELAND -- The last two times the Indians and Tigers have faced off in a series, it has set the tone for both teams for the next 3-4 weeks.

The Tigers though regained their mojo with a three-game sweep at Progressive Field last month that...

How much do Cavs love Love? Not as much as Wiggins, it seems

Some general thoughts on the Cavaliers and Timberwolves talk: -- If the reports are true, the Cavs think Andrew Wiggins can be a special player. If the reports are true, the Timberwolves feel Kevin Love already is special. And if the reports are true, you can't blame either side for feeling the way they do. -- Wiggins is 6-foot-8 and was the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft...

Kluber, Swisher lead Indians past White Sox 7-4

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Corey Kluber allowed four runs in six innings, and Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the fifth, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Kluber (9-6), left off the AL All-Star team despite a strong first half, wasn't his usual dominant self but pitched well enough to win. The right-hander has won three of his last...

Blatt, Cavs overjoyed by LeBron news

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- David Blatt was running a summer league practice with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday morning, and the sound of someone shrieking suddenly filled the gym.

Reds ready to face injury challenges head-on

CINCINNATI -- There is no "pity party" going on in the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse, not in the manager's office, not in the clubhouse proper, not in the training room, not in the dugout and not on the field. First-year manager Bryan Price has every right to ask, "Why us?" or to slump in his chair and say, "Oh, woe is us?," but he won't even peer...

Simon goes for sixth straight win

While the Cincinnati Reds are sending four players to next week's All-Star game, Alfredo Simon somewhat surprisingly isn't one of them.
