“So, LeBron James, Steph Curry and Chris Paul walk into the Four Seasons…” It might sound like the start of a very good joke—or of a very big-budget commercial—but it actually happened on Monday in Las Vegas, when members of the NBA Players Association gathered for summer meetings at the Four Seasons hotel.

Finding the “All In” in Chicago

All In shirts

It started the minute we stepped onto the L train from Midway. It was hot. Cramped. My friends and I piled into the overly crowded car, suitcases in hand. Hanger (that’s hunger-induced anger) was setting in, and patience was wearing thin. A man in Spongebob swimtrunks and mismatched socks noticed my friend’s blue and orange

“Betting on the success of innovative technologies in the marketplace can carry all the uncertainty and risk that betting on the next card in the deck does at a blackjack table in Las Vegas. There is a factor of randomness that must be factored in, but precisely how to do so is anyone’s guess.” –

Vegas is experiencing some heavy betting on the underdog Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers

I’ve been pretty obsessed with the fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are underdogs. They don’t have home court advantage and their injuries are legitimate, and there’s a sense that they weren’t tested during their road through the East. Still, they’ve played excellent basketball and have the most experienced superstar left in the NBA playoffs, so

Hanging By A Moment

What do you remember about those 48 points LeBron James scored in Game 5? Think hard. It was eight years ago, after all. I’m sure plenty of people remember that LeBron James scored 29 of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ final 30 points1 on that fateful night against the Detroit Pistons. But think harder. What else do

Why wasn’t Dwight Howard suspended for shot to Bogut?

J.R. Smith Crowder Shot

Dwight Howard has nothing to do with Cleveland sports and due to the fact that his team, the Houston Rockets, trails Golden State 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, he probably won’t for this season. That said, Dwight Howard was involved in a play against Andrew Bogut that was eerily similar to the one that

Are You (Playoff) Experienced? Pt. 2

Cavaliers LeBron James 2015 playoffs

A few weeks ago, I used 31 NBA postseasons worth of data to test the clichéd hypothesis that prior playoff experience is important to success in the NBA playoffs. I asked the questions, “Does playoff experience matter?,” “How much does it matter?,” “Is playoff experience the only thing that matters?” and, “While we’re at it, does anything really

As we get ready to kick off the Cleveland Cavaliers’ pursuit of the Larry O’Brien trophy on Sunday afternoon at The Q, I wanted to cover one last theme before the Cavs and Celtics tip-off. At times, the Cavaliers get a little excessive when it comes to switching on high ball screens involving a guard

Cleveland Cavaliers Playoffs

Although it feels unfamiliar after a four-season hiatus, Cleveland Cavalier fans are starting to see players at home and across the NBA start to limber up their playoff bodies.

Thursday’s NBA trade deadline saw some 11 trades—or more, if you count the different portions of three- and four-way deals independently—move nearly 40 NBA players, the rights to four non-NBA players, and about a dozen draft picks. Players and picks flew across the league like barnyard animals in Twister, and just as suddenly. Even the Association’s foremost news breaker
