2018-10-18

Many cookbooks or cooking shows will tell you the best way to see if pasta is ready is to throw it against the wall… and see if it sticks. This might, however, not necessarily be the best way to tell if an NBA team is ready for a regular season… or if a particular lineup is ready to stick together. That didn’t stop Tyronn Lue from donning his chef hat…

After seeing multiple cut aways to Austin Carr and others posing at the strangest wax museum in sports (which exists inside the Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing) during the Cavs’ preseason finale against the Pistons, I’ve…

Thanks to Kyrie Irving being unable to keep his ungrateful, recalcitrant pie hole buttoned… EG went full Pestak tonight, dragging Nate down a rabbit hole of NBA rants. The Evil one gave both barrels to the Flat Earther about his recent comments about Boston “saving” him from the living hell that apparently must have been Cleveland for him.

We love @KevinLove! pic.twitter.com/NbhhDM0BRS — Cleveland Cavaliers (@cavs) July 24, 2018 Uncle Drew left the family. The King abdicated his throne. But, Love came to town and decided to stick around.
