With training camp having been open for three weeks, J.R. Smith still doesn’t have a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers – and he may soon have to look elsewhere to find a suitor. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, it will only be “a matter of time” before Smith begins looking elsewhere, with the Cavs still refusing to offer Smith much more than $10-$11 million. Minnesota...
Kyrie Irving might be as well-known for portraying “Uncle Drew” in a series of commercials than he is for playing a key cog in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ title-winning team. And it looks like his alter-ego could become even bigger.

There’s a lot of reason for celebration in Cleveland, and that’s what Cavaliers players did during Friday’s game at Progressive Field, which the Indians won 6-0. The Cavs are world champions, and the Indians are red-hot and making a push to do the same.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and J.R. Smith are in a classic contract stalemate, and at the moment it seems like there is no end in sight. According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com, the Cavs are simply waiting for Smith to cave and sign the last contract they formally offered him. However, that is unlikely to happen anytime soon, as Vardon reports Cleveland offered somewhere in the range...
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving doesn’t just break ankles, he takes ankles. And he’s using that reputation, as well as his love for “The Undertaker,” to create a new nickname.
