Kyrie Irving is not a superstar

A superstar is supposed to be someone transcendent, someone who dominates, someone who makes everyone around them better. LeBron James is a superstar. Chris Paul is a superstar. Kyrie Irving is not.

Cavs Friday Five: Would you rather? Cavs and Wizards edition

Kyrie John Wall

It’s tough to be a Cavalier fan these days. Real tough. They could very well be the worst team in all of the Association. Sure, their 4-8 record puts them only a half game behind Detroit for the 8 seed, but as I sat in The Q and looked up to see The Diff read

Colin Cowherd: “Cleveland is Close”

Fresh off of yesterday’s berating of Washington’s John Wall and all things “Dougie,” ESPN’s version of a shock jock Colin Cowherd wrapped up an NFL segment earlier today by heaping praise on Eric Mangini and the Cleveland Browns.

The New Four Horsemen: LeBron, Wall, Calipari, and Worldwide Wes?

First, a disclaimer – I think Kentucky Men’s Basketball coach John Calipari is a complete slime-ball, used car salesman cheater. He seems like a nice guy in interviews, but there is no doubt in my mind that he is dirty. Lebron James spent his off day Saturday afternoon sitting courtside at Rupp Arena in Lexington,
