Welcome to the final Wednesday of January 2015. This winter hasn’t been that bad, right? We probably have three more months of it to look forward to, but aside from a couple bad spells, I think we’ve been fairly fortunate in Cleveland thus far. I was in South Korea this time last year and have

Everything you need to know about the NBA All-Star game, Kyrie Irving’s contract, and the future

Dan Gilbert Cleveland Cavaliers Salary Cap

NBA fans voted in LeBron James as an Eastern Conference All-Star starter, but did not vote in Kyrie Irving despite his start last season and his reigning All-Star Game MVP honor.
