The Cavs Fly High Over the Hawks

Whenever LeBron is playing there’s always a strong chance of seeing something incredible; last night’s Hawks/Cavs game featured two such plays! First comes his Highness himself, LeBron taking one hard to the hoop and slamming one down right before the buzzer for the half.

Then late in the 4th quarter noted handgun owner Delonte West drives over the outstretched arms of Josh Smith to score 2 points the fun way. Fortunately, this explosion from Delonte doesn’t require police involvement.

LeBron is on the Downside of His Career

According to Dave Berri, an economics professor at Southern Utah University NBA players reach their peak at 24 years old and then everything from there is downhill. In an examination of every player from 1977-2008 Berri found that the average 24-year-old who plays 35 minutes a game is equal to 6 wins per season,

After that point, the player’s productivity dips. There are exceptions of course, Kobe peaked at 24 (he was worth 15.5 wins a year) but at age 31 this year he’s still worth 14.3 wins. Then there is LeBron, last season he played 2/3 of his games at age 24 and was worth a fabulous 27.7 wins for his team. He’s already shown that he’s over the hill; this season he’s worth a mere 24.2 wins. Pathetic.

It’s sad when athletes just hang on.

LeBron Teabags Allen Iverson

As the teams were warming up before Wednesday’s Cavaliers/76’ers game LeBron James wanted to pay his respects to one of the best players in NBA history, Allen Iverson. And what better way to show your deference than to place your balls over his face?

That’s how the Caesers greeted one another right?

Maybe that was  just Caligula…

LeBron Smacks Roy’s Shot Into 2010

As the Cavaliers closed out their win Friday night against a Blazers team that has been ravaged with injuries, LeBron James brought just a bit more pain Portland’s way with an awe-inspiring block against Brandon Roy.

That man can jump really really high.

LeBron is a P.Y.T.

I can’t say for certain that it is Shaq’s influence, but off the court the Cavaliers seem to be having a bit more fun; maybe it’s Cavs management trying convince LeBron how much fun he can have in Cleveland, or maybe he’s just trying to go out on a high note. Regardless, the hits keep on coming from the Cavaliers with their latest video advertising the Cavs singing Michael Jackson’s hits.

LeBron Can Do Anything

LeBron James is an athletic freak, we can all agree on this; he still insists that he could play NFL football now, much to the chagrin of Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey. During a recent Cavs practice the team lightened things up a bit by playing some casual football on the court. Afterwards, just goofing around LeBron launches the football from the baseline and goes nothing but net. Is there ANYTHING he can’t do on a basketball court?

We Are All Witnesses (That LeBron Could Have Swine Flu)

We-are-all-witnesses--lebron-james-546521_1024_768Having already come down with the flu, LeBron James and several of his Cavs teammates are being treated by the team for swine flu as a precaution. While the test results haven’t come back, the team has opted to err on the side of caution.

After spending the day in bed LeBron told reporters, “I think I’m over it now. If you get sick, then I wasn’t.”

While he wasn’t happy to be sick, LeBron was glad that it at least took place during the pre-season, “If it’s going to happen, now is the best time,” he said. “I don’t want anyone to get sick. But if this is the time the flu bug is going to hit our team, I’m glad it’s happening now.”

Fortunately, LeBron’s teammates are handling the loss of their superstar maturely, “People are always messing with you, ” LeBron said, “When you come back around they’re like, ‘Oh, you’ve got the cooties.’ They don’t want to be around you.”
