LeBron James: "I will guarantee that we will play our asses off" in the Finals — CLEVELAND, Ohio - If you're from here, or near here, and in any way shape or form associate yourself with a professional sports franchise here, part of you is defined by a catch phrase.

The LeBron James rundown: Game 4, Cleveland Cavaliers 118-88 over the Atlanta Hawks — CLEVELAND, Ohio - LeBron James came home last summer, and this spring he's led his team to the Promised Land. James closed out the Atlanta Hawks with a game-high 23 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists in a 118-88 Game 4 romp.

LeBron James struggled before he dominated Game 3; history says he'll own Game 4 against Hawks — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - There have been more than a few words written and spoken about LeBron James' greatness in Game 3 against the Hawks. Now, a few about the not-so-great moments from that game. Of course, James finished with 37 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in Cleveland's 114-111 overtime win, creating a stat line never before seen in the NBA postseason history.

LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and the conundrum of playing through pain in the playoffs — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - Something is bothering LeBron James, though his stats don't show it. His ankle? His knee? Back? Or how about those pesky cramps that so infamously plagued him in Game 1 of last year's Finals?

LeBron James: "I don't like" Matthew Dellavedova's bad rap, which Al Horford called a "track record" — CLEVELAND, Ohio - Say this for Matthew Dellavedova: LeBron James is in his corner. That much was obvious early Monday morning, some 88 minutes after the Cavaliers' memorable 114-111 overtime win over Atlanta in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, when James and Dellavedova finally reached the podium to answer questions at around 1 a.m.

The LeBron James rundown: Game 3, Cleveland Cavaliers 114-111 (OT) over the Atlanta Hawks — CLEVELAND, Ohio - LeBron James recorded his 12th triple-double in the playoffs. It was a doozy, and now his Cavs are just one win away from the NBA Finals. James overcame a disastrous start to finish with 37 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in Cleveland's 114-11 overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

With a bigger "hard drive" to process adversity, LeBron James still believes Cavaliers can win NBA title this season — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio - When the Cavaliers stood pat at the trade deadline in February, LeBron James said it was OK. He believed then that his team -- which was on its way to the NBA's best record over the second half -- was good enough to compete for a championship.

Kyrie Irving worked out Saturday, "questionable" for Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Kyrie Irving was on the practice court Saturday testing the new, small brace on his sore left knee and remains "questionable" to play in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, Cavaliers coach David Blatt said.

LeBron James urges city to remain calm and rally around Cavaliers in aftermath of Brelo verdict — INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- LeBron James urged the city of Cleveland to remain calm and channel its energy into the Cavaliers' playoff run in the aftermath of a judge's decision to acquit a police officer of manslaughter in a 2012 shooting which led to the death of two African-Americans.

LeBron James' 'gift' is that the Atlanta Hawks 'really can't make me do what I don't want to do' — ATLANTA - DeMarre Carroll only has one healthy knee, but he wasn't about to miss the chance to "play against one of the best players in the world." He simply couldn't let the experience of playing against LeBron James in the Eastern Conference finals pass him by.
