CLEVELAND -- LeBron James' annual postseason blackout on social media ended quickly and with aplomb, from his sharing of a video in which he sang happy birthday to his son to more footage of James looking like Michael Jordan.

James, 32, posted to Instagram a video of him singing happy birthday to his second son, Bryce, who turned 10, on Wednesday. And on Thursday, James showed himself patrolling the weight room at his house with a new haircut since the Cavs lost Game 5 of the Finals to the Golden State Warriors.

That second Instagram post -- with the haircut -- is interesting for two reasons. He captioned the video with the hash tags "#IHearEmPrayingOnMyDownfall," "#CantStopWontStop," and "#striveforgreatness." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

With his importance validated after the Cavaliers' championship last June and reaffirmed this postseason -- especially in the Eastern Conference finals -- it seemed like Love had finally quieted any remaining skeptics.

And yet, not even a week after the playoff run came to a disappointing end, a lopsided 4-1 series loss against the Golden State Warriors, Love's name was again at the center of trade rumors.

Welcome to Love's world. He's been asked about it numerous times, his only recourse to shrug it off. It doesn't even matter how well he performs anymore. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
