Someone other than the authors of this blog has taken notice of Kevin Love’s ridiculous outlet passes. Check out this video on the Cavs’ website to see the best outlet passer in the NBA at work. (Is it just me, or do the Cavs manage to work a whole lot of LeBron James into a video that is supposed to be about Love?)
Love has a unique skill which appears to create a couple fast break opportunities every night. That would help out any offense. Now if the Cavs could only come up with a better color scheme – they might just get my vote for worst uniforms in the NBA.
Love’s teammate Kyrie Irving’s first signature sneaker just released on December 6. The notable thing about this is that they are available (for now) exclusively from NikeiD. As far as I know, this is a first. Nike signature sneakers usually release in a couple of colorways, including a team colorway, before hitting NikeiD. Apparently Nike thinks that no one wants to buy sneakers in the Cavs colors. That being said, the first signature colorway, “Dream,” which is set to release on December 23, looks nice, but is not a strictly Cavs team colorway:
In old highlights news, “The Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo has been putting on a show lately. In a game against the Heat on December 5, his full range of abilities was on display as he dunked all over Chris Bosh and grabbed a rebound and drove the length of the floor for a layup.
Just look how much ground he covered in those last two steps before the layup. Ridiculous! And I’m pretty sure his arm was growing as he dunked on Bosh. Maybe Antetokounmpo is really Inspector Gadget. I’m looking forward to seeing him and the Bucks take on the Hawks in Atlanta on December 26.
I respectfully disagree and kind of enjoy the Cavs’ kits, but even though de gustibus non est disputandum, I think everyone can agree that the current uniforms are a vast improvement over those from the second half of the 1990′s.
