CAVALIERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cavaliers set to host banged-up Heat

The Cleveland Cavaliers reached the quarter-pole of the season, which is typically when teams begin to make self-evaluations, but coach Tyronn Lue isn't ready to do that quite yet. Despite being the defending champions and holding the best record in the East, Lue still doesn't think the Cavs are a finished product. Therefore, now isn't the time to make any grand assessments. ...

Cleveland Cavaliers Point Guard Kay Felder's On-Court Workout is All Kinds of Intense

Though Cleveland Cavaliers rookie point guard Kay Felder hasn't seen much court time early in this 2016-2017 NBA season, don't think for a minute that he gets to take it easy.

LeBron not interested in hashing things out with Phil Jackson

With the Cleveland Cavaliers set to take on the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night, some have wondered if an awkward conversation between LeBron James and Phil Jackson is forthcoming.

LOOK: LeBron James wears Cubs uniform after losing bet with Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James had previously made a bet on the outcome of the World Series, and the Cavaliers star made good on it before Friday night’s Cavaliers-Bulls matchup. Obviously, each player picked their hometown team, so James was on the Indians, and Wade had the Cubs. With that said, it appeared that the bet had to do with donning the opposing team’s uniform, judging...

WATCH: J.R. Smith has laughable defensive lapse

Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith made a defensive miscue in Tuesday night’s game against the Bucks that even James Harden would laugh at. Smith, in the middle of a play, walked off the court to give Jason Terry a quick hug. He probably shouldn’t have, because his man, Tony Snell, took advantage of it.
