LeBron Is KING.

LeBron James has been keeping the cavaliers relevant since he rejoined the team. He delivered on his promise of a championship and has done outstanding things in the community. He receives a lot of hate like he is a bad guy but I believe that hates comes from him being so good at what he does.

This season is going to plan but the Cavaliers might want to beef up the roster because they don’t quite measure up to the top teams from the western conference. My sleeper team this year is the Rockets because they are a deep team with a lot of shooting from behind the arch and a few scrappy big guys who are hungry for rebounds and hustle points.I think they can give the Cavs a run for their money but they have to get past the Spurs and the Warriors.

The Cavs are signing Deron Williams who is on the back nine of his career and it is rumored that Andrew Bogut will sign with them as soon as he gets a buyout from the 76ers. To me on paper this does not make them deeper, but it makes them have some names that are now washed up and hoping KING LEBRON can carry them on his back and win them a championship.

I do think he will win it this season because the Warriors are all hype and no bite. They just will have a hard time this year getting past the Spurs and the Rockets and I do see them losing in the playoffs this year. Look for LeBron to get his 4th ring this season and remain the king of the NBA.

Lebron James: The Sword of Damocles

By: Will Stevenson

Today, I will attempt to “stick to sports”.  Among the things that have circulated throughout the news cycle, the daily soap opera that persist with the Cleveland Cavaliers is something to behold. Lebron hasn’t been much of an outspoken player when it comes to other players, staff and teammates through the media. He’s more of a coy mastermind, the type of person that gives ambiguous comments to push his team, and/or other players in the league. Lebron has wielded his power since leaving Miami, as he showcased in his “coming home” letter in which he purposely left out Dion Waiters and Andrew Wiggins. From the Kevin Love trade, the acquiring of JR Smith (the main priority) and Iman Shumpert, to the filling out of the bench with his personal favorites, Lebron has been able to contrast his own team of his liking. With two consecutive Finals appearances and one championship last June, there isn’t much for the Cleveland fanbase to complain about. There shouldn’t be much for Lebron to complain about, right?

There is one thing that Lebron gave up last summer: Leverage. After the Finals comeback over the Warriors, Lebron was “back on the market” as an unrestricted free agent. In years past, he has signed a two year deal with a player option for the second year. This was done to maximize his contract and to always keep the Griffins on their heals when it cam eto his demands, and hey responded as needed. With the potential lockout looming at the time, and the tv deals up for reconstruction, Lebron decided to sign a three year deal with a player option after the second year. This is very different from past years, and the Cavs brass have taken advantage of it.

  1. JR Smith had to wait for his contract
  2. Tristan Thompson had to wait for his contract
  3. Kay Felder was drafted
  4. The Cavs 15th roster spot has been vacant since the Kyle Korver trade
  5. No Melo
  6. Matthew Dellavadova was not replaced
  7. Lebron leads the league in minutes

Now most would say Lebron is doing his usual January pouting, as the Cavaliers finish up January with their worst record in terms of losses. I would contend that Lebron looks at the Spurs and Warriors and knows that the way the Cavaliers are playing will not get them another championship. He looks at the game logs and realizes he’s playing the most minutes in the league, and at his age, he should not be doing so. A player like Lebron should be around 31-33 minutes a night, not wasting minutes in order to keep the Cavs afloat.

Is this an issue with the Cavs management? Is this an issue with the Cavs players? Is Lebron secretly pissed off in his personal life? Who pissed in Lebron’s cheerios? It was all good during the Halloween party, what happened. Oh yes, JR Smith got hurt, Mo Williams never returned and Kyrie still is a facilitator, even though he’s having a career year in assists.

We can bash Lebron all we want, but if Lebron doesn’t win the Finals, we’ll crush him once again like we always do. He’s doing what he needs to do to have a balanced, healthy team come playoff time. He knows the limitations of their offense, and the lack of defense, but it’s only the regular season. We know what the Cavs can bring when it comes playoff time, and we’ve seen the evidence of their lockdown defense and explosiveness on offense.

PS. Please sign Lance Stephenson. Please.

I seriously think you should jump on this wave!

By Lawrence Edwards

OK, before I get started let me tell you that this isn’t a fad that will quickly fade out, nor is it a get rich quick scheme. It’s simple, I am not forcing you or trying to persuade you to do anything. I just want to share with you something that I know sports enthusiasts every where will enjoy and offer you the opportunity to be apart of something or get ahead of everyone else on a trend that is about to take the world by storm. From Football to Cricket we have something every sports will fall in love with. You have two options: Affiliate or Player. I will go in to great detail about both and most importantly the coming of a game changing sports app by United Games that is going to absolutely blow your mind!

Now what we are talking about here is an app that will let you enjoy your favorite sport interactively while watching the game. This app is going to bring a new dynamic way of playing of enjoying sports. It’s not just going to focus on the major sports but every sport.  The point is to get everyone to enjoy sports better, not just the people who have time for drafts and 4 different fantasy leagues or the ones who are good at selecting the right combination of players in order to enjoy the experience.

Now, as I previously mentioned you have two options to join this wave, either as a player or an affiliate. If you want to just be one of the first to enjoy the experience of this game changing app then sign up as a player for free. You will be a pre-registered player and once the app launches within the next 5 weeks you can begin enjoying your interactive sports experience and start earning some rewards and points. I don’t know about you but once I started playing fantasy football and basketball, the game became THAT much more interesting to me. I began to pay attention to things that I didn’t before. This interactive app will award every real sports fan the same experience but much better – did I mention that some of EA Sports former developers are building this thing? – Get ahead of the trend, this app is coming and it’s going to change the way we enjoy sports forever and it will be the first of it’s kind, share it with your neighbors, share it with your family, if they love sports, chances are they will love this!

Now if you are interested in becoming an affiliate of United Games and getting the opportunity to not only get ahead of the trend but earn some money while doing it, then this the route you want to go. Now let me tell you this isn’t a pyramid scheme or something wild like that, if you don’t want to be an affiliate then you don’t have to. We aren’t trying to recruit people for money, we are just offering an opportunity to earn some income based off of people just playing the game. Now when this was brought to me a few weeks ago I had my initial negative thoughts. I was told that I can become an affiliate for free, feel it out see if I like it and if I do I would have to pay a one time fee of $30 to stay an affiliate and $9.99 a month to maintain my affiliate site and if I don’t just simply cancel no harm done. Now I’m no easy person to convince to join things, so I did my own research before I agreed to sign up for anything. Now I hate selling things, I’m terrible at it, so the fact I didn’t have to sell a product and it was an app – I’m a huge tech junkie – helped me decide to really read up on it. So I did my research and found that this app could really be something special and I don’t have to pay my fee until the app launches in 4-5 weeks at the time of this writing. I figured, what can I lose? I can jump on board playing a new fantasy app and maybe earn some money while doing it. Every time you share the app and someone signs up, whether as an affiliate or a player, and starts buying or earning tokens, you get a piece of the pie, NICE! Another selling point for me was the fact that in order for you to earn income you have to fill out tax form 1099. That right there let me know it was legit. Now United Games is offering this opportunity only up until the app launches in 5 weeks. Once it goes live, the affiliate opportunity will be no longer offered. You will only be able to download and use the app.

Whether you sign up to be a player or an affiliate I can assure you that this app is going to change your sporta experience. The point of this blog is to get the word out that a Giant is coming and to offer, what I believe to be a grand opportunity to be apart of the next big thing. If you like what you heard here today feel free to drop a comment, email me (lawrence.edwards115@gmail.com) or if you got here through my Facebook link, just shoot me a DM and I will happily send you a link to be an affiliate or a free player so you will be all set to go when the app launches. Once you click the link there will be more information for you to read through to get an even better understanding. You’re going to love this!

Here is a one page info sheet you can look at to get more information. Feel free to contact me with questions.

 

We Are the Champions!

By Amir Wali Hamzah

Part of me wondered if I would ever be able to say that as a Cleveland sports fan. In every dream I’ve had about winning a championship I’ve pictured myself as an old man. I figured I would get a hoverboard and flying cars before Cleveland won a championship. But, here we are. Champions.

I know the disappointment of being a fan in my city. I was just old enough to start getting into sports when “the Shot” happened. My heart was broken when in 1995 when “the Move” was announced. Made worse by the fact that the Ravens won a Super Bowl just a few years later. 1997 the Indians lost to a pretty much expansion team in the World Series. The Browns came back and had more foibles than I can count or even want to get into. And then we had “the Decision” having LeBron James, the pride of Cleveland, leave to go to greener pastures to chase championships. And then win them. In that same year, the Indians had a damn good season and went on to go up 3-1 in the ALCS and fall apart and lose 3 straight. That’s the closest Cleveland has been to winning a championship since these finals for the Cavs. (Yes, I’m well aware we made the Finals last year, but everyone knew we weren’t winning without Irving and Love).

We’ve had a crazy season in Cleveland. If you are a Cleveland fan, you know what it is like to hear bad things about your team ALL OF THE TIME. We are more critical than anyone else about us. We heard Wiggins of Love trade was terrible. We heard Love and LeBron don’t get along. We heard we had no chemistry. We heard LeBron the GM. We heard he ran David Blatt out-of-town. I have had that sick feeling in my stomach all season that we might fall apart. But I never stopped believing. I wavered when we went down 3-1 against the Warriors. What Cleveland fan didn’t? You can’t live the life of a Cleveland sports fan and not have any doubts. That said, I stuck with my pick. Cavs in 7. Lord knows I did not expect it to be the most difficult way possible, but this is Cleveland we are talking about. At the end of the day we pulled it off.

You may not understand the feeling we have about this if you aren’t from Cleveland. You probably don’t completely get why I was crying like LeBron was about a game I don’t play in a city I don’t even live in anymore. I know you get it Cleveland. I know you understand that no matter how far we go and no matter where we end up, you are still a part of us. Cleveland needed this. We needed this. This certainly doesn’t erase all of the disappointment many us have spent years dealing with, but it is a start.

Today we cry about Cleveland sports, but not because we’ve lost in a most painful and agonizing way. Not because one of our sons or daughters has left our city. Not because we watched a 30 for 30 that brought back all of the painful memories. We cry because WE ARE CHAMPIONS!
