LeBron James brings the Christmas spotlight back with him to Cavs
Author: George Thomas
Publication: Akron Beacon Journal
"LeBron James will be taking his talents to South Beach again only this time the entire country will watch on Christmas Day.
James and his teammates are scheduled to take on his former team, the Miami Heat in a holiday game as part of the basketball buffet the league puts on every year, according to the Miami Herald.
The national spotlight is something Cavs fans will have to reacquaint themselves. As James developed during his first stint with the Cavs – a seven-year stretch – appearances on national television and the late starts that came with them were the norm not the exception." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
Cleveland Cavaliers have framework of Love deal in place

"It appears the framework of the Cavaliers-Timberwolves trade is done.
However, there are still some moving parts in the possible deal.
The Cavaliers would prefer to hang onto rookie swingman Andrew Wiggins. That much is true.
However, the Timberwolves probably won’t make the trade unless Wiggins is included. Timberwolves president/coach Flip Saunders might get booed out of the state of Minnesota if he traded three-time All-Star Kevin Love to the Cavaliers and didn’t bring back Wiggins." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
Cavs look like frontrunner in trade for Kevin Love
Author: Rick Noland
"Another team could always jump out of the woodwork, but right now it looks like the Minnesota Timberwolves need the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavs are the clear frontrunner to land Timberwolves big man Kevin Love, as Chicago and Golden State have faded in their pursuit of the 6-foot-10, 260-pound power forward.
At the moment, that leaves only Cleveland, which is offering a package of 2014 No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins, 2013 No. 1 overall selection Anthony Bennett and a future first-round choice. To make the deal work under salary cap regulations, the Cavs would also have to throw in another player." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
