>>Poll: All Forgiven For "King James"
(Cleveland, OH) -- LeBron James' approval rating is through the roof. A new poll reveals more than 60-percent of Ohioans have forgiven "King James" for taking his talents to South Beach back in 2010. The survey conducted by Quinnipiac University also shows that the Cavaliers made the right decision in re-signing James. The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player played four seasons with the Miami Heat and won two championships before recently returning to Cleveland.
>>USA Basketball Cuts Wall, Beal, Millsap
(Undated) -- USA Basketball is trimming its roster for the upcoming FIBA World Cup. Washington Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal and Atlanta Hawks forward Paul Millsap have been cut. That leaves the U.S. roster at 16. It must eventually be cut down to 12 players. The FIBA World Cup begins August 30th in Spain.
ESPN reports no players are leaning toward pulling out of playing for Team USA despite the horrific injury suffered by Indiana Pacers guard Paul George last week. George fractured his tibia and fibula in an intrasquad scrimmage on Friday and will likely miss the entire 2014-15 NBA season.
