  • NBA Preview: Five key storylines entering the 2017-18 season

    The 2017-18 NBA season begins on Tuesday, with Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving making a quick return to Cleveland and Houston on the road against defending champions the Golden State Warriors. Irving's trade request and subsequent move to Boston was one of many high-profile switches during the close-season and while the Eastern Conference was a little more subdued than the West, there was still plenty of intrigue. Can anyone unseat the Cavs in the East?

  • LeBron's future with Cavs may hinge on success this season

    LeBron James enters the 2017-18 season with a deeper Cleveland Cavaliers team than the one that lost in last year's NBA Finals and anything less than a championship in June could mark the end of his second tenure with the team. James can opt out of the final year of his current contract and become an unrestricted free agent after this season, which many pundits feel the game's greatest player will do if he fails to capture a fourth NBA title.

  • Stevens knows hanging banners is ‘what it’s all about’ in Boston

    When Brad Stevens took the Boston Celtics job in 2013, he knew what he was getting into. Yes, the Celtics at that time were rebuilding which usually means years and years of slow but steady progress – if you're lucky. While most rebuilding teams spend years working their way towards being competitive, Stevens hit the ground running and in just four years, he led the Celtics from being a 25-win team to one that was just three wins away from getting to the NBA Finals.

  • Why This NBA Season Is More Important for the Lakers Than You Think

    The 2017-18 NBA season doesn’t really exist for the Los Angeles Lakers. At least, not in the way it exists, for example, for the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Boston Celtics or the San Antonio Spurs, or even the Brooklyn Nets whose overperformance this year could scupper Cleveland’s best-laid plans. For Luke Walton, Magic Johnson and the rebuilding Lakers, the 2017-18 NBA season that begins on Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena when the Celtics visit the Cavaliers is about intangibles, a deliberately frustrating and ambiguous term that stands, in this case, for small steps in the direction marked "Playoffs" and, eventually, the NBA Finals.

  • Can the Lakers show enough this season to convince LeBron James to move to L.A.?

    The 2017-18 NBA season doesn’t really exist for the Los Angeles Lakers. At least, not in the way it exists, for example, for the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Boston Celtics or the San Antonio Spurs, or even the Brooklyn Nets whose overperformance this year could scupper Cleveland’s best-laid plans. All of those teams, and more besides, have something tangible to aim for.

  • LeBron: Irving's return to Cleveland will be fine
