LeBron listed 4th in early MVP odds

LeBron listed 4th in early MVP odds

Early MVP odds have been released, and LeBron is fourth. Early odds for the 2017 Most Valuable Player award have been released by Bovada, and LeBron James landed among the top five, while Kyrie Irving was listed as a longshot to win. James is at +750, meaning that a bet of $100 for James would pay out $750. It’s not stunning that his odds have been reduced given that the Cavaliers appear to be headed for a turmoil-filled season and might not perform as highly as voters might expect. With that said, if you’re among the Kyrie Irving skeptics of the world and think LeBron...

Why the Cavs will eventually get the Kyrie Irving deal they want

Why the Cavs will eventually get the Kyrie Irving deal they want

With a view of training camp around the corner, look for teams to get serious with offers for Kyrie Irving. The Cleveland Cavaliers have a little over a month until training camp opens up what could be the most important season in their history. Looming over the team for the moment is the unknown fate of star point guard Kyrie Irving, who has requested a trade out of Cleveland. After a flurry of rumors and an array of potential trade scenarios, things have quieted down significantly. However, it is likely just the calm before the storm. The Cavs and new GM Koby Altman have held their...

Sources close to LeBron deny report that he is leaving the Cavaliers

Has LeBron decided he's leaving? Depends on who you ask. LeBron James future in Cleveland has been the subject of rampant speculation, with the Cavs star being linked to Los Angeles, and former ESPN writer Chris Sheridan reported this today: NBA source said today: "This will be LeBron's final season in Cleveland. He is 100 percent leaving. Relationship with owners beyond repair."— Chris Sheridan (@sheridanhoops) August 16, 2017 Sheridan once correctly predicted LeBron’s return in 2014 in a post that is no longer on his website while missing on some very key details (he said that...

NBA Trade Rumor: Kristaps Porzingis not available in possible Kyrie Irving trade

Porzingis appears to be off the table. Just as more news came in regarding the focus of the Cleveland Cavaliers efforts to trade Kyrie Irving, we have a counter-report cooling the flames of any Irving to New York Knicks talk. While Kristaps Porzingis was identified as the Cavs primary target, it appears as though any odds of the team acquiring Porzingis are slim to none. According to a report from Steve Marcus and Mike Rose of Newsday, the Knicks are not interested in moving Porzingis for Irving: “[Knicks president] Steve Mills and [Knicks general manager] Scott Perry on the record were...

For the second time in a matter of days, James has critiqued the president.

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving have their signature shoes recognized by SLAM

The Cavs (and Nike) duo had a combined three sneakers recognized. As SLAM magazine sets to release its annual Kicks issue, the magazine is honoring the 20 best on-court sneakers of the last 20 years. And Cavs stars Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are recognized on the list. For James, his first signature shoe — the Air Zoom Generation — graces one of the covers. His other shoe on the list — the Nike LeBron 8 — was released in 2010 when LeBron played for the Miami Heat. Here are his covers: SLAM Magazine SLAM Magazine As for Irving, last...

The Raptors called the Cavs about Kyrie Irving

The Raptors called the Cavs about Kyrie Irving

Toronto called, but it’s unlikely a deal gets done between the two teams. A possible Kyrie Irving deal remains the Cleveland Cavaliers’ most pressing matter. Even the Toronto Raptors — a team with no real chance of landing Kyrie — is making calls. "We all do our due diligence," Raptors GM Bobby Wager said in an interview with TSN 1050's Michael Landsberg and Matt Cauz (as transcribed by TheScore's John Chick). "Things don't always make sense, but if they do, we're always prepared. ... A lot of talk that we do ... doesn't really see the light of day. ... When a player like that...

Cavaliers projected to come out of the East

The Cavs still are the top dog in the Eastern Conference. Despite all of the turmoil and uncertainty surrounding how the roster will look, the Cleveland Cavaliers are still the favorite to come out of the Eastern Conference. While it’s not clear what will happen with Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics added Gordon Hayward, it still doesn’t seem like enough to stop the Cavs from making another Finals. At least that’s what ESPN’s Summer Forecast says. The Cavs received 34 out of 44 first place votes with the Boston Celtics receiving the other 10 votes. The reasoning for their...

The Cavs get back to normal with dysfunctional offseason

After a brief respite, the Cavs are back to the usual bewildering upheaval Let’s get a few things out of the way first. The Cleveland Cavaliers are, in quite a few respects, a first-rate organization. Their in-game entertainment staff, their practice and training facilities, the analytics and scouting departments and communications team all rank among the very best the NBA has to offer. As far as I can tell, employees enjoy working there. But from the time that LeBron James left Cleveland until the time he fell to the ground celebrating the same town’s first professional championship...

NBA Trade Rumor: Cavaliers targeting Kristaps Porzingis, other young stars for Kyrie Irving

The Cavs After a long period of silence surrounding a potential Kyrie Irving trade, we finally get some insight into what the Cavaliers are thinking. While most figured the Cavs would be looking to capitalize on what is left of LeBron James’ time in Cleveland, it appears as though the fear of losing him again is making the Cavs look at younger options. According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the team is not putting blind hope into James staying anymore. Rather than be reactive to departure, they are looking to set themselves up in position to succeed in the future, with or...

Do the Cavs need to get a point guard in return for Kyrie Irving?

Do the Cavs need to get a point guard in return for Kyrie Irving?

If the Cavs trade Irving, do they need to get a point guard in return? How the Cleveland Cavaliers handle the Kyrie Irving trade request may be one of the most important moments in franchise history. Not only will it help determine the ceiling for this team, but it may influence their ability to retain LeBron James. We know that the Cavs asking price for Irving is a starter, a rookie contract player, and a draft pick. But what players and positions they will receive help at from a trade remains to be seen. Irving has shouldered a massive load over the last couple seasons and trying to find...

It doesn’t sound like Deron Williams loved his Cavaliers tenure

Road Trippin’ always delivers. The Road Trippin’ podcast with Richard Jefferson is one of the most candid and sometimes revealing pods in the game, and the most recent episode featuring Dave McMenamin tiptoed around the idea that Deron Williams did not really enjoy his time with the Cavaliers after being bought out by the Mavericks. Richard Jefferson: “When you ask Deron about golf, his eyes light up. When you ask Deron about MMA, his eyes light up.” Dave McMenamin: “-What about when you talk to him about coming off the bench for the Cavaliers?” Jefferson: “His eyes did not...

Report: Cavaliers intrigued by Celtics as potential Kyrie Irving trade partner

The Cavaliers may find the Celtics mix of short and long-term assets appealing, but that doesn’t mean a trade is coming. According to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers are beginning to evaluate potential Kyrie Irving trades under the assumption that their future won’t include Lebron James, beyond the current season. James has played coy with his long-term plans, and allowed speculation that he intends to leave for Los Angeles to continue to grow. In doing so, he’s forced Cleveland to consider how any personnel decisions might play into the vacuum his...
