Cleveland Cavaliers are the beneficiary of LeBron James' feelings for home -- Bud Shaw's "Sports Spin"

LeBron James wanted to be home. The last time he looked the Cavs were still right up the road. So we have a love affair with Northeast Ohio and a business arrangement with an owner who mocked him when he left in 2010. All in all a remarkable comeback story.

2014 NBA Free Agent Rumors: Luol Deng wants more than Atlanta Hawks offering, per USA Today

Harvey to spend break with Team Boras

Harvey to spend break with Team Boras

NEW YORK -- Matt Harvey has heard about agent Scott Boras' Friday comments that the Harvey optimal rehab time from Tommy John surgery before pitching in a game is 14 to 16 months. And given Harvey underwent his procedure on Oct. 22, the ace joked he's probably now on track to pitch in December. Harvey certainly now seems to have accepted that he will not pitch in a game in 2014, as the rehab process continued to be slowed. In fact, despite recent rumblings that he may get on a mound right after the All-Star break, Harvey said that is not the case -- it will be farther down the road.

SF Giants lineup for Marco Scutaro’s first game back

I watched Marco Scutaro take batting practice Friday and I don’t know what to make of it. His swings looked so tentative, but I don’t know if he couldn’t swing harder or just did not want to. Everybody takes something different out of batting practice. Maybe he just doesn’t want to take any big cuts when he doesn’t have to. In any event, he’s back in his familiar No. 2 spot against lefty Wade Miley. The Giants go for what would be their second series victory since the Mets sweep June 6-8. The only other one was against the Diamondbacks, too. The lineup: Pence RF Scutaro 2B...

The Houston Texans And HLSR Want To Demolish The Astrodome

... and I couldn't agree more. The Astrodome dilemma needs to be resolved before the 2017 Super Bowl. There's a new plan to demolish the Astrodome. The Houston Texans and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo want to knock it down and create a green space in time for the 2017 Super Bowl, which will be hosted in NRG Stadium next door. The $66-million plan would tear down virtually the Astrodome, replacing it with a ring of structural columns resembling those now surrounding the stadium. The columns would bear plaques commemorating athletes and artists who performed in the dome. The site...
