Dave McMenamin
ESPN Staff Writer

LeBron James says he didn't have any input in the design of the Cavs championship rings. "I'm just fortunate enough to be a part of three championship teams so far in my career," James said at shootaround Tuesday. "It's not like I'm going to be wearing it like a wedding band or things of that nature, so I'm just happy to be able to be a part of another ring ceremony, be able to have a ring for my archives. But as far as aesthetics and things of that nature, it doesn't matter."

Celtics' odds of keeping top seed just went up. Bucks game notes indicate Giannis, Middleton, Snell and Dellavedova will sit out vs. C's.

Towns is a great player but man is he soft on defense.

Cavaliers will waive C Larry Sanders and sign C Edy Tavares, who spent season playing for Raptors' D-League team -

maybe all these moves won't work out after all

Lebro v. Wade (Spottie), Wednesday, 12 April 2017 03:59 (one year ago) Permalink

I had no idea Tavares was a free agent, that would have been a very interesting move earlier in the season

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 12 April 2017 05:33 (one year ago) Permalink

In "clutch time" (defined as a five-point game inside five minutes), Westbrook leads the league in points per 100 possessions (74.3), shooting 44.6 percent from the field and OKC is a plus-21.7 per 100 possessions with him on the court in such situations.

k3vin k., Wednesday, 12 April 2017 17:16 (one year ago) Permalink

All clutch stats are pure variance really. Even with the massive usage sample for Westbrook.

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 12 April 2017 20:19 (one year ago) Permalink

It would be amusing if Gobert won dpoy after somehow not being the all-star on his team

love this article

k3vin k., Wednesday, 12 April 2017 20:59 (one year ago) Permalink

the game theory stuff is sick, he's so smart

love this too

These opportunities don't just materialize. They develop. Their roots stretch back over seconds or minutes or entire quarters – if not further. When they were in New Orleans together, Paul used to call up now-Nuggets coach Mike Malone on off-nights to riff on the latest in League Pass. His Clipper teammates say Paul is liable to ask if they saw some random move from a completely irrelevant preseason game. "All I do is watch basketball," Paul said. "Seriously."

k3vin k., Wednesday, 12 April 2017 21:01 (one year ago) Permalink

if paul hadn't missed that time he'd be legitimately in the MVP discussion

k3vin k., Wednesday, 12 April 2017 21:04 (one year ago) Permalink

It's strange how Paul has become so underrated. I despise him so it doesn't bother me but it's really dumb.

Matt Armstrong, Wednesday, 12 April 2017 21:15 (one year ago) Permalink

CP3 is a Ty Cobb / Pete Rose kind of figure. He's HOF 1st ballot material, but he is easy to despise.

It's strange how people decided that this is the shameless flopper they'd hate tho. It's about the lack of titles I guess.
