    Richardson's 82 three point attempts do not qualify him on ESPN (lowest I found was 144 attempts) but if they did he would be the leader in three point percentage. For the season.

    As things stand he's the leader in the NBA in three point percentage among any player with 25+ attempts.

    Seems unreal considering how this team could not hit a 3 for its life before the all-star break.

    I don't see Wade pulling 20m again. He's in line for a yuuge payday on his show deal if he plays 2 or 3 more seasons. I see us giving him years at lower pay.

    Ethan pointed out that the Heat should be favored in 6 of their next 7 contests with the lone exception being the back-to-back in Portland after playing at the Lakers the day before. And honestly they could even win that game.

    A 6-1 run before the showdown with the Celtics is a possibility.

    Windhorst falling asleep in the middle of an ESPN interview is glorious!!

    Then he tried to damage control and came out even worst if that's possible.

    It looked to me like he was trying to read his phone on his lap or perhaps a sheet of paper on his lap and couldn't hear when she stopped talking to ask a question.

    I get that Windy is hated but I wish people wouldn't go so far with it, fat shaming him 24:7 and really going after him.

    I wasn't fat shaming him though. And I don't know which is worst, him really falling asleep, or him being so rude as to not pay attention to Cari Champion who is talking directly to him. There were several seconds of empty air as she was waiting for him to react.

    I dont care for Windhorst's weight but the guy's career got started by stalking a middle schooler, which by the way the guy does not even like him, all the way to the NBA. You see his work in display and if youre a Kent State student, youre embarassed and you want to transfer.

    What a pathetic performance by the Cavs, up 19 at halftime, losing by 3 in the 4th and the ball never touches Kyrie's hands, Dellevadova is handling the ball down the stretch and creating his own bricks LOL

    As long as they take care of Toronto the next couple games they should be a lock. But theyre looking pretty bad. This is the point where youre suppose to be peaking to the playoffs, instead they look like the season just started.

    Also I have to say it would seem to me that LeBron is going to leave Cleveland again. I don't know that he's coming back to Miami or anything but I do think he's leaving Cleveland.

    Could the Knicks swing him under the cap? I think the lesson he's taking from all this is he needs to be with other "brotherhood" in order to really get a locker room the way he wants it, and I think Carmelo would fit that just as easily as Wade & Bosh. Plus the Knicks now have Porzingod so that would be a good sell on a new trio. Plus another strong culture-enhancing personality in Phil Jackson, similar to Pat Riley.

    I don't know how his image survives another exodus. Much more likely he forces the Cavs to unload Love and Irving for players he wants. Would the Knicks take Love for Melo and the Clips take Kyrie for Paul?

    I'm glad we had LeBron when we did, and the rivalry it would create if he went to New York would be pretty damn exciting, not gonna lie. The rivalry would certainly be renewed with Miami.

    By the way is Mozgov dead or something... that team needs rebounding and defense... I saw Beasley take Thompson to school several times.

    I think the mistake in this logic is thinking he's looking for less power - he just ran away from that arrangement. I think it's much more likely he forces the Cavs into a bunch of bad trades to bring in guys he likes.

    My take on LeBron is that he wants power above all. He has that in Cleveland. I think he's much more likely to exert that power than leave for somewhere that he has less.

    LeBron has complete and total control of the Cavs and what they've done. He hand picked this team and this roster and the coach. He constantly says he's the leader. If he left it would be him admitting that he failed - and I don't know that I've ever seen LeBron admit something like that.

    I really don't get how this guy has a job. His entire career has been spent speculating on LeBron. He brings no real inside info or insight to the table. I'm not ****ting you, there was a video of him on ESPN.com's front page yesterday with the title "LeBron Has Been Moody Lately". It's absurd, really.

    On another note, I'll be at the Heat/Lakers game tonight. Really hoping they don't play down to the Lakers. Also hoping Kobe plays.

    Bet heavy on miami whatever the spread is. Deangelo russell baited nick young into talking about cheating on his fiance while secretly recording the conversation and TMZ got ahold of it.

    It's funny how everyone treats Nick Young like he's the victim here. Dude cheated on his fiancee with a 19 year old and he's the victim? Come on. You can be mad at Russell but if you didn't get outed that way it could easily have happened any number of other ways.

    Agreed, but why was he recording it? Was he planning to blackmail or extort him? Russell is a snake here, and they were appardntly friends. Something tells me russell didnt do this because he has morals.

    The key takeaway- this kid needs Pat Riley. McBob and a future late 1st?

    If he had done this to say D Wade, Riley wouldve taken the belt to this guys hide.

    Obviously if you're doing something wrong and it comes out you can't be that upset, but this Russell was acting like a damn NARC for something that was none of his business

    You don't record somebody without their permission and then release the recording

    It's just wrong

    I don't think the world needs or is entitled to know whether Nick Young is cheating on his lady. That's not for Russell to decide or put out there.

    I don't think he'd be dumb enough to leak something that came directly from his phone. Probably a prank gone wrong like he claims. Someone else (perhaps someone's girl) got ahold of it and leaked it. Still a dumbass thing to do in the first place.

    And how is this guy going to exist in the NBA? You think Nick Young is the only guy to run around on his lady? It's not even that, it's the whole trust issue to begin with. What else will be blab about? Right or wrong, off-field trust is a huge deal in team sports. And that guy is marked.

    Even Nick Young's attention craving lady probably would prefer that stayed private. Or at least get out on her terms.

    That story is wild. As for betting heavy...It sounds like Winslow isn't going to play tonight, meaning that Gerald Green will be taking the majority of those minutes. So maybe not *too* heavy. Though I'll probably do it anyway.

    Seems like Whiteside having a bad game but then you realize he's got 7 rebounds and 5 blocks and you could imagine him with a triple double at this pace.

    This team needs to get their head out of their *** already. All long range shots look terrible in the air, bunch of stupid plays. Ball movement is crap. Defense is non existent. We should be smoking these scrubs
