    There's No Sense in Wondering if the Cavs Could've Made a Better Deal for Kawhi Leonard

    Despite trying to look towards the future with the Cleveland Cavaliers as opposed to wondering what could've been had LeBron James stuck around, it's still difficult to avoid falling into revisionist history. I find myself hearing an update around the league and thinking "I wonder if this would've helped convince James to stay." A good example of this is today's news regarding the San Antonio Spurs moving disgruntled forward Kawhi Leonard to the Toronto Raptors. Upon hearing the returns San Antonio received in the deal, more than a few Cleveland fans were under the belief the Cavs could've offered a better package. Surely if the team did so, Leonard could've been a Cavalier, potentially convincing

    As long as LeBron is from Cleveland, he is with Cleveland: Letter to the Editor

    "It's over! It's over! Cleveland is a city of champions once again!" Never did sweeter words ring across The Land. Except perhaps, for these: I'm coming home. LeBron James came back to Cleveland to inspire. And what's more inspiring than a man lifting a city, carrying it on his shoulders, and weeping as he proclaims our other favorite words, "Cleveland, this is for you!"? What's more inspiring than taking the hardest road again and again, each time, paving it with gold? When The King is on your side, there are countless awe-inspiring moments. But now, it's over. It's over. Those words, no longer so sweet. But, you know something?  LeBron hasn't left us. As long as he continues to choose a path

    Cedi Osman is Ready to Step Up as a Sophomore On the physical side, Summer League gets young guys back in the gym and into an officially competitive environment before a two-and-a-half-month layoff heading into Training Camp. But Summer League also gives young hopefuls a mental lift. The incoming freshmen, like Collin Sexton and Billy Preston, get a taste of big league speed – and by the end of their two-week run, they know they're either ready to hang or need some fine-tuning before September. And returning rooks, like Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic, who might've been fetching the veterans' Krispy Kremes or lugging their gear are now the veterans themselves. Cleveland's international sophomores are

    NBA trade news: Kawhi Leonard race blown open, Kevin Love & Khris Middleton rumours

    GETTY Kawhi Leonard's proposed trade exit took another turn, while Khris Middleton could also move on Kawhi Leonard to Raptors? Lakers deal on ice Kawhi Leonard looked all but certain to be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer after making his desire to leave the San Antonio Spurs known during talks with team representatives last month. The 27-year-old identified Los Angeles as his preferred destination, making clear his intention to turn down the opportunity to sign a lucrative five-year $219m extension with the Spurs this summer. If Leonard is not traded this summer, he could opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent in 2019 – but the Spurs remain reluctant to
