Supporting cast, contract confidence yields Wiggins-Love answer

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at New Orleans Pelicans

Kevin Love. Andrew Wiggins. It’s been exhausting, and we’re looking at four more weeks of it as the No.1 overall pick’s contract clock ticks. Granted, it’s not “LeBron James” exhausting. It’s more nervous excitement. The Cavaliers are going to have three REALLY good players one way or another. I’ve been quite outspoken in my desire

There has been plenty of discussion about when and where the Cavaliers will have some high-profile matchups on national television, something that’s been sorely lacking for the last four seasons.

A monarchy restored, but the subjects never left

LeBron's back

I spent nearly four years holding onto a lot of hard feelings when it came to LeBron James. A lot of us did. The first year could only be described as raw and open wound hatred.

The Indians won in impressive fashion last night 7-3 over the Kansas City Royals, but it came at a cost.
