nba rumors The perfect coach plopped down in his seat at the podium, his face a mixture of exhaustion and exultation. Tyronn Lue has yet to lose a game in his first NBA postseason with the Cavaliers, who are 10-0 and looking invincible, threatening to sweep through the Eastern Conference playoffs on the way to a second straight visit to the finals.

Lue had been Blatt’s top assistant, his defensive coordinator, but his ascension was met with skepticism that he would be able to control James. Lue, though, made it clear from the start that this was his team. He challenged James during practices and in film sessions, demanding he work harder on defense. He’s held all the Cavs accountable. And as a former player who struggled when it was time to quit, he’s reminded the Cavs their careers are short and to embrace every day, every practice, every game. AP/Detroit News

nba rumors Matthew Dellavedova will be a game-time decision tonight when the Cavaliers play the Toronto Raptors in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. Dellavedova stepped on another player’s foot and turned his left ankle during the Cavs’ Game 2 win in Cleveland. Akron Beacon Journal Blog

Wizards: According to majority owner Ted Leonsis, during exit interviews every player on the roster suggested Oubre should’ve played more under Randy Wittman who was fired after a 41-41 season and had a tendency to chew out younger players. Throughout training camp last season, Oubre stood out. Even in his first summer league action, though he didn’t shoot well, he was head and shoulders above everyone he played against with his wiry 6-7 frame, 7-2 wingspan and athleticism. CSN MidAtlantic

Magic Johnson told late-night host Jimmy Kimmel that he only talked trash once during his 13-year NBA career - and Michael Jordan was his target. It happened when both Hall of Famers were practicing for the 1992 Olympics with the original "Dream Team." Playing against each other, they played to a tie three days in a row, Johnson said, so coach Chuck Daly decided to split the players into East versus West, giving Johnson an opportunity to spice things up with Jordan. "This is the fourth day, and we got out on them by 12-2, so I said I'm going to really rattle his chain," Johnson said. "So I said, 'Hey, man, if you don't turn into Air Jordan we're going to blow you out today.'" Chicago Tribune via the Charlotte Observer

Bryant said his Kobe Studios also includes seven more people who have been working on a project for the past two years, and another team of five writers starting a new project shortly. The company is now making a three-to-five minute film based on the “Dear Basketball” poem that Bryant used to announce his retirement, led by longtime Disney animator Glen Keane and featuring music from John Williams. On Wednesday, Bryant was focused on one of his more familiar roles — as pitchman. He attended a ribbon-cutting at a Hublot watch store in Beverly Hills, California and modeled his third signature watch with the luxury brand, the HeroVillain. Its retail price: $20,400.
