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.

LeBron James and the moral dilemma of free agency

WFNY_roundtable

Obviously, most everyone in Cleveland is elated with the return of Lebron James. Equally obviously Heat fans are bummed and feel let down.

LeBron's back
