But this playoff battle cry is about so much more than research projects and ancillary perks. It's about Cleveland's promising young core. TORONTO -- Tristan Thompson has been through this before. He was younger back then, a baby-faced 20-year-old rookie trying to find his place in the NBA. It was before he became a full-time starter, NBA champion and consecutive-games-streak ironman. Before he identified his dominant hand and added muscle to a once-wiry frame. Of the 15 players on this Cleveland Cavaliers roster, Thompson's the only one with experience in a post-LeBron...

Andrew D. Bernstein/Getty It was a small imposition of authority by the NBA in the grand scheme of things, but a revealing one. Over the summer, J.R. Smith, the oft-shirtless Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard, added a brand new tattoo to some of the few square inches of canvas available on his person. This time he went with a literal brand, inking the logo of the lifestyle and clothing company Supreme across the back of his right calf. The NBA refused to let this combination of self-expression and unpaid sponsorship go unpunished. Should Smith fail to cover up the... [Read More]

That's been the story. Lose LeBron, miss out on the playoffs. CLEVELAND, Ohio -- LeBron James is gone, making it the third time he has left his previous team in free agency. The 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers went on to make the wrong kind of history, not only tumbling out of the playoff picture but dropping to the depths of the NBA. The 2014-15 Miami Heat -- despite their championship culture, an accomplished head coach and some talent left over from the James era -- couldn't make the postseason either. That's been the...
