LeBron James spoke out Tuesday against the violence in Ferguson, Mo., condemning the protesters who rioted and burned buildings after a grand jury voted not to indict the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown.
CLEVELAND: He was hesitant to discuss it, given all the attention he received last week, but if there was a bright spot to emerge from two dreary weekend losses, it might be the progress that forward Kevin Love flashed within the Cavaliers’ offense.
CLEVELAND: This is how delicate life in the NBA can be: Two years ago, the Los Angeles Lakers were reloading another dynasty, a year ago the Miami Heat were expected to storm their way to a three-peat and six weeks ago it was fair to wonder if this would finally be the season the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled.
INDEPENDENCE: The epitome of the Cavaliers-Wizards playoff rivalry occurred in Game 2 of their first-round series in 2008, when LeBron James went soaring to the basket and landed beyond the baseline after a two-handed shove from Brendan Haywood sent him crashing out of bounds.
CLEVELAND: Down by 2 and the ball in LeBron James’ hands, the Cavaliers were in a pretty good spot Wednesday. That’s what made James’ fumble so surprising in what became a 92-90 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, although James still saw progress even in defeat.
