Andrew Wiggins doesn’t get the credit he deserves and it’s very unfortunate. I think Cleveland Cavaliers’ fans take for granted what he brought to the team. Drafted on June 26, 2014. Signed on July 24, 2014. Traded on Aug. 23rd, 2014. Andrew Wiggins‘ career in Cleveland was short. Way too short. It seemed like just yesterday […] Watch: A Tribute To Andrew Wiggins’ Cleveland...

WATCH: Kyrie Irving puts on dribbling clinic against Spain

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving has the best handles in the NBA. Sometimes, it looks like he has stickum on his hands. He doesn’t use stickum, he’s just really good, and a Spain defender learned that lesson in Thursday’s semifinal match. He did a good job of checking Irving and staying with him for awhile, but the elusive point guard’s power was just too great...

The future, past and present Kyrie Irving

The crossover was never uncool. It always kind of existed as this necessary tool for the game’s little men to create space against bigger opponents. It’s a defensive mechanism used to create offense.
