Much has been made of the recent LeBron James media tirade, in which he directly and indirectly berated his teammates, coach, and front office all in one jumbled post game speech. However, there’s multiple shots and subliminal to extract from his very calculated responses to media questions. Delay of Game Hoops will break it down for you… What LeBron said: “I just hope that we’re not satisfied … Continue reading LeBron’s Media Melee Dissected

LeBron James Records His 1st Opening Night Triple-Double

The (defending champion) Cleveland Cavaliers steamrolled through New York to kick off the 2016-17 season. After raising its first-ever championship banner, CLE capitalized on 29 points from Kyrie Irving, 23 points & 12 rebounds for Kevin Love & an opening-night triple-double for LeBron James. 19 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds – LeBron’s 3rd title defense was a breeze if we’re being honest. He looked spry … Continue reading LeBron James Records His 1st Opening Night Triple-Double

Cruise Control Klay

To put it simply, Klay Thompson has not had a productive Olympic outing thus far. When initially added to the 2016 USA Men’s roster, he was expected to bring his marksman 3-point shooting to one side of the floor and stand-up defense to the other. Apparently he left both in Oakland. Klay’s last international competition with the 2014 FIBA World Cup winning team, he averaged … Continue reading Cruise Control Klay

“LeBron Joins the 30M Club”

Earlier this week, LeBron James inked a 3 yr/$100 million deal to re-sign with Cleveland. Rumored to take a shorter deal with the rising salary cap, LeBron ultimately decided to tack on an extra year, giving the Cavs a bargain. But what’s the significance? Cleveland has its all-world superstar locked up while maintaining some flexibility for future acquisitions. But that’s boring. The real meaning behind … Continue reading “LeBron Joins the 30M Club”

“LeBron’s Still Pissed”

A lot of people questioned whether LeBron James would ever win a title in Cleveland. And you know what, he’s well aware. Shortly after the Cavs capped off their comeback, LeBron returned to Instagram (from Zero-Dark Thirty Mode lol) in triumphant fashion. And today? Well, he had something else for his doubters: View this post on Instagram But that's none of my business right!?!? #TheLand … Continue reading “LeBron’s Still Pissed”

“Cavs-Dubs: Christmas 2016”

Cavs. Warriors. Christmas Day, 2016.  According to reports, LeBron James & the defending champion Cavaliers (still feels weird to write!) will host Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and the new-look Warriors. In a surprise to no one, the NBA went with traditional form and opted for a Finals rematch to headline Xmas festivities. There’s no greater draw in the league than Dubs-Warriors. Ignoring a possible (Finals) rubber … Continue reading “Cavs-Dubs: Christmas 2016”

“Blake Griffin For Space Jam 2?”

A few months back, Space Jam 2 was (unofficially) announced – starring Cavs superstar LeBron James. Even before LeBron led Cleveland to an improbable 3-1 comeback in the Finals, he’s the obvious choice to follow in Michael Jordan’s footsteps, right? Well, not in the eyes of MJ. During a recent Q&A at this camp, Jordan was asked who he thought should star in a Space … Continue reading “Blake Griffin For Space Jam 2?”

Chris Andersen to the Cavs

If LeBron James ***** with you, he really ***** with you. According to multiple reports, GM LeBron is at it again – former teammate Chris “Birdman” Andersen is set to join the King in Cleveland on a one-year deal. To free up space, CLE sent seldom-used Sasha Kaun to Philly (expected to release him). An NBA champion in Miami, the HEAT infamously signed Birdman for the rest … Continue reading Chris Andersen to the Cavs
