LeBron James Celebrates Cavalier's Playoff Eastern Conference Championship with His Sons

Papa James
The following video shows LeBron James hugging his sons after his Eastern Conference Championship victory.  Although the video is short, it reminded us of our article a few months ago involving LeBron being a great father.  We have reposted some of the article's contents following the video.

The Prince of Cleveland For those who forget that LeBron James is a good-hearted person, he provided us with a reminder yesterday.  He posted a video of a clip from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's famous 'Why he don't want me speech'.  In the speech, Will vents about the problems that he has faced from growing up fatherless.  His father makes yet another excuse and Will has had enough.  It is a message that must continue to spread around the world as so many children grow up fatherless.  LeBron also faces life without a father so he decided to spread the message via Instagram.  It may seem like an effortless act yet LBJ understands the impact that he has and knows that …

Hello, My Name is David Blatt, Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Coaching a King
It has to be difficult to coach a King.  How can you teach a player that has already accomplished it all without you? For Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan, the mountain was climbed hand-by-hand from the 1st Championship to the 6th therefore respect was never an issue.  The opposite is true for Cleveland Cavalier's Coach David Blatt and 2-time NBA Champion LeBron James.  James is often called the coach of the team by the media and every interaction between the two is heavily scrutinized.

Coach David Michael Blatt
Coach Blatt grew up in Massachusetts and attended Princeton University.  He played point guard for Princeton and was the team's captain.  He is currently 56 and he coached in Europe prior to being hired by the Cavaliers.  Coach Blatt received a three-year deal worth nearly $10 million with a fourth-year option that includes incentives.

Keep on Pushing
Coach Blatt will most likely see the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, a team that attempted to hir…

How Many Championships Does LeBron James Have?

LeBron James has 3 championships thanks to his win tonight vs the Golden State Warriors.  The post below was written a year ago before the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in the 2015 NBA Championship.  The article is a bit more relevant now.

Game Four
The Cavaliers defeated the Atlanta Hawks 118-88 in Game 4 of NBA Eastern Conference Finals.  King James dropped 23 points, grabbed 9 boards and dished 7 dimes.  Cleveland was strictly business from the opening possession.  We are certain LBJ explained to his team how important it was to win the game after witnessing the Golden State Warriors fail at their attempt to sweep the Houston Rockets the day prior.

Feeling Like I'm Back
LeBron Raymone James has led the Cleveland Cavaliers back to the NBA finals for the first time since 2007.  In 2007, LeBron acted with the maturity that many adults never attain.  He made the leap from high school Chosen One to franchise savior for Cleveland.  Two NBA Championships later, LeBron is more…

Top 10 Golden State Warriors Websites to Follow the 2015 NBA Finals

I must say, unlike the San Antonio Spurs or the Boston Celtics, it is difficult to strongly dislike the Golden State Warriors.  We can't forget LeBron James stating that Stephen Curry deserved to win the 2015 NBA Most Valuable Player Award.  Moreover, Stephen Curry is from Akron, Ohio.  Curry and James were born in the city.

Remember when the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics used to nearly kill each other? Times have changed and there is a mutual respect between the Cavaliers and Warriors and between LeBron James and Stephen Curry.

Charles Caleb Colton states "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." LeBron James has acknowledged how impressive the Warriors have been this season.  As a Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Finals matchup becomes more inevitable, our focus has begun to shift towards scouting the Bay Area's basketball squad.

LeBron James: His Love for the Game - No Chance At All

LeBron James injured his foot in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  He scored 37 points, grabbed 18 boards and dished out 13 assists in Cleveland's 114-111 win over the Hawks in overtime in Game 3.  Cavaliers trainers had been massaging James' knee earlier in the game.  In December and January, LeBron missed eight games due to left knee and lower back strains.  In February, the King suffered right wrist and ankle injuries.

After the game, James stated that there was "No Chance At All" of him missing Game 4.  Similar to Michael Jordan, LeBron LOVES the game.  Jordan proved it by playing with the flu and King James is proving it every game of the playoffs.  LeBron is 30 and has the remainder of his career to look forward to.  Financially, it is not in LeBron's best-interest to continue to run on his suffering motor yet you cannot sway a King away from what he loves...

LeBron James Gets Fouled Hard by Pero Antic | Cavaliers vs Hawks | Game 3

LeBron nearly gave Pero Antic a reminder not to get in his way when he is flashing through the lane, yet Antic resorted to shoving LeBron to the ground.  Cleveland fans were hoping to see a replay of LeBron's epic 2008 dunk on Kevin Garnett.  The Cavaliers were leading the Celtics 82-75 when KG made one of the worst decisions of his life - WITNESS:

On a lighter note - Thank You KG.  Thank you for making a honest attempt at denying The King as opposed to attempting to end his career.  Similar to LeBron, you recently made a return home and we enjoyed the following footage.
