LeBron James acknowledges Michael Phelps after dunk

January 10, 2017

LeBron James and Kevin Love talk to Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole Johnson outside the locker room following the Cavaliers victory over the Suns. ESPN/Dave McMenaminPHOENIX -- There's not many instances where LeBron James is not the most accomplished athlete in the building, but that was the case Sunday after the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Phoenix Suns and 28-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps was waiting to greet him outside of the visitors locker room.

James had a two-hand hammer dunk early on in the fourth quarter of the Cavs' eventual 120-116 win and pointed to Phelps, who was sitting with his wife, Nicole Johnson, on the floor to the left of the basket on that end of the court.

"It's just funny," Phelps told ESPN when asked about James' in-game acknowledgement. "I was just talking to people who were sitting around us and they were like, 'Did he just point at you or is he pointing at me?' And I was like, 'Yeah, I don't really know.' And then he drills a 3. It was awesome. Being able to come watch these guys play is always a treat and they gave us so much love over in The [Olympic] Games and being able to just come and see them when they're here in Phoenix is, like I said, a true treat to come and watch."

James had 12 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to stave off a comeback attempt by the Suns, hitting two 3-pointers while standing right in front of Phelps' seats....

January 08, 2017

The acquisition of Kyle Korver helps fill a need on the perimeter for the Cavaliers after the team lost J.R. Smith and Chris Andersen to injuries. Layne Murdoch/Getty ImagesThe Cleveland Cavaliers filled a need at guard by acquiring Kyle Korver from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams and a protected future first-round selection, the teams announced Saturday.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to add a player and person the caliber of Kyle Korver to our Cavs family," Cavs general manager David Griffin said in a statement. "Among the most prolific and dynamic 3-point shooters in NBA history, a selfless and team-first competitor, Kyle brings all of the elements of Cavs DNA that we covet on and off the floor."

The move comes one day after the Cavaliers shipped their first-round pick in June's draft to the Portland Trail Blazers for a 2018 protected first-round pick, which Cleveland originally sent to Portland along with Anderson Varejao in exchange for a future second-round pick at the February trade deadline last year....

January 06, 2017

"At the end of the day, the goal was to win championships, and we were able to win two together and play in four [Finals]," Dwyane Wade said of his time with LeBron James on the Heat. "That's what you play the game for, and I'm happy about that." David Sherman/NBAE/Getty ImagesCLEVELAND -- Dwyane Wade believes that LeBron James' performance in leading the Cavaliers back from a 3-1 deficit to the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals is "a defining moment" for his close friend's legacy.

"That was special," Wade said Wednesday, before the Bulls beat the Cavaliers 106-94. "That was incredible. We've seen a lot, we haven't seen, obviously, teams come back from [being down] 3-1 in playoffs that much but especially in the Finals. And not having home-court advantage, that was really special what those guys were able to do, obviously led by Bron.

"I think for his career, that moment right there really put him where he probably wanted to be, where everybody thought he was going to be one day when he was deemed as 'The Chosen One.' It was a defining moment for his career forever. So it was special."...
