LeBron James talking a good game, still playing a great one

NEW ORLEANS — Older, wiser and more aware of the world, LeBron James is unafraid to let his views known on politics or social issues or even the business of basketball.It wasnt always that way.But in his 14th season, with more NBA playing years in his rear-view mirror than left in front of him, James doesnt see much reason to stay silent these days.

Despite injuries, turbulence, Cavaliers lead the East and just one game off last year’s pace at All-Star break

CLEVELAND: It hasn’t always been easy and oftentimes it has quite literally been painful for those involved, but the Cavaliers enter the All-Star break again on top of the Eastern Conference and the overwhelming favorites to return to the NBA Finals for what would be LeBron James’ seventh consecutive trip. They have fought through injuries to two starters to enter the break 7-1 in February, already matching their win total from a turbulent 7-8 January that included James ripping his own organization and questioning their desire to win. All of that seems behind them now. “We’ve played...

How should the Cleveland Cavaliers fill their open roster spot?

The Cavs don’t have a ton of roster flexibility, but they do have the ability to add one more guy. “I just hope that we’re not satisfied as an organization,” LeBron James told reporters after a game last month. “I just hope we’re not satisfied.” Those words seemed to be an unmistakable message to owner Dan Gilbert. It might have been tempting to become complacent after winning the franchise’s first championship and ending Cleveland’s infamous title drought. It was LeBron himself, after all, who said in his Sports Illustrated letter that what was most important was...

All-Star game live thread: Is it LeBron’s turn to put on a show?

LeBron James isn’t quite at the end of the road, but it might be his night either way LeBron James is the most accomplished player in the NBA. He’s one of the best four or five players in the history of the league. He’s been an All-Star game MVP before. Just about everyone respects him. The East got blown out of this game last year. It never got competitive. I have a feeling James might take this one seriously. Go for another MVP. Try and keep the East in this. Maybe not. Either way, the Cavs have both James and Kyrie Irving starting in this one. Thinking about where the organization...

NBA All-Star Game notebook: Former 3-point champion Kyrie Irving taking laid-back approach in Saturday’s competition

NEW ORLEANS: When Kyrie Irving won the JBL Three-Point Contest during NBA All-Star weekend in Houston in 2013, the Cavaliers guard hit 10 in a row and 17 of his first 18 shots.His favorite part of the contest was LeBron James and Dwyane Wade standing up on the sideline as he shot, which he still marvels over since he wasn’t yet teammates with James.“I started off the first rack pretty hot and kept the streak going, so the basket becomes a little bit bigger than it’s supposed to be,” said Irving, who totaled 23 points in the final round to defeat the Spurs’ Matt Bonner.While Irving...

Cavaliers 113, Pacers 104: Kyle Korver hits 2,000th career 3-pointer, shoots Cavs past Pacers

CLEVELAND: Kyle Korver ascended into rare air Wednesday night. The Indiana Pacers won’t mind if he stays there.Korver scored 22 points off the bench Wednesday and became the seventh player in NBA history to make 2,000 3-pointers in a career in the Cavaliers’ 113-104 victory. LeBron James scored 31 points, his 13th 30-point game of the season, and Kyrie Irving scored 26 points and passed for seven assists, but Korver’s dominance over the Pacers was somehow even more impressive than James and Irving, both of whom are heading to New Orleans now for Sunday’s All-Star game.Korver shot...
