LeBron says Reebok head offered a $10 million endorsement deal while he was still a student at Akron’s St.V/St.M

LeBron says Reebok head offered a $10 million endorsement deal while he was still a student at Akron’s St.V/St.M

He was still in high school. Yet he had the chance to become the Ten Million Dollar Man. And he said no. Before ever stepping foot on the NBA hardwood as a pro, LeBron James said on a podcast released Wednesday that the first real big financial decision of his life came in 2003 when he met with then-Reebok head Paul Fireman. James recalls being flown to meet with Fireman and bringing along his longtime friend, business partner and fellow St. Vincent/St. Mary alum Maverick Carter for the endorsement meeting. “Being, like, the first generational moneymaker in the household is a...

NBA Playoffs: David Griffin is set to be a free agent, and that’s a problem

NBA Playoffs: David Griffin is set to be a free agent, and that’s a problem

The architect of the Cavaliers championship team still does not have a contract extension, and that is a problem.  Looking ahead to the next few years, the Cavaliers are in good shape. The majority of their core is locked up for the foreseeable future, as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, and Kevin Love are all signed through at least 2019. In fact, the only Cavs that are currently getting serious minutes that are free agents this summer are Kyle Korver and Deron Williams. Even head coach Tyronn Lue is signed through 2020 with a team option for another year after that. Despite...

Cavaliers report: Deron Williams shakes off confidence issues, finds his stride after rough two months

INDIANAPOLIS: Deron Williams admitted he felt pressure joining the defending NBA champion Cavaliers.A starter since his second year in the league in 2006-07, he acknowledged the blow to his confidence that accompanied a new role coming off the bench.Even after 12 seasons in the NBA and two stints with LeBron James in the Olympics, the 33-year-old point guard might have had no idea what was in store when he signed with the Cavs on Feb. 27.Especially how long it would take him to feel comfortable, to play like a three-time All-Star again.Fortunately for the Cavs, Williams appears to be hitting...

Tyronn Lue says he considers Cavaliers-Warriors to be a rivalry

Tyronn Lue says he considers Cavaliers-Warriors to be a rivalry

Despite LeBron’s protests, Tyronn Lue says that Cavs-Warriors is indeed a rivalry. LeBron James may not want to say that Cavaliers-Warriors is a rivalry, but Tyronn Lue had no hesitation during an appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike. “I think any time a team plays back-to-back years in the NBA Finals, and a lot of fans around the country are looking to that third match-up, especially with those guys acquiring Kevin Durant, I think it’s a rivalry,” Lue said. “I think these two teams, they want to get there, they want to play each other, and it’s some dislike there. They want to...

NBA Playoffs: Today Could Be End of an Era of Indiana Pacers Basketball

NBA Playoffs: Today Could Be End of an Era of Indiana Pacers Basketball

The Pacers trail the Cavaliers 3-0 in their first round series. If the Pacers lose today the Paul George trade rumors will start tomorrow. Channing Frye hit a three from the right key and effectively ended the Pacers season. Technically the series isn’t over, but Frye’s three pointer ended any hope the Pacers had of bringing the series back to Indianapolis after Sunday’s game. The craziest part of last night game wasn’t the 25-point blown lead by the Pacers, most Indiana fans could have seen that coming. It was that two months from now pundits will look back at game three as the...

Chris Paul is not going to return to New Orleans as a free agent this coming summer

Chris Paul is not going to return to New Orleans as a free agent this coming summer

And please, quit making bad comparisons to LeBron James and his return to Cleveland. When LeBron James, the prodigal son, returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers nearly three years ago, he was widely applauded for writing the words, “I’m coming home.” Please, stop waiting to hear the same phrase come out of Chris Paul’s mouth in reference to New Orleans this summer. While a return would make for a fantastic story and be fun to contemplate CP3’s intriguing fit alongside Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, it’s thoroughly unwise to rationally believe CP3 will entertain donning a...
