To keep a King, the Cavs invoked 'Family Guy.' Natch.

The Cavaliers understood the seriousness of their meeting with the greatest player in franchise history today. Instead of the proposed 30 minute meeting, they stayed for nearly 90 minutes. Coach Byron Scott talked about how he planned to use LeBron James. They reminded James of all the good times he’s had in Ohio, of how it’s his home, how this is the place he’s meant to be. I’m sure it was very moving.

Oh, yeah, and then they showed him a freaking cartoon in the style of “Family Guy” featuring him, his friends, his teammates, and a bunch of inside jokes from the Cavs.

Yeah, that.

Apparently the Cavs’ main feature was that they “know him best” according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Maybe that will work. After all, the Cavs do know him best. It just seems like an odd pitch considering the diverse business and basketball offers being tossed around. It’s not the weirdest pitch made. The Knicks had James Gandolfini from ‘The Sopranos’ in a skit in the role of Tony Soprano.

If you were wondering at what point this thing became a caricature of itself, today wasn’t it, but it may be the apex of ridiculousness.

It’s hard to find a new low for defense in an NBA All-Star Game.

But Stephen Curry was laying down on defense. Literally.

The result was a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk and Curry ending up in the highlight anyway.

Hey, DeAndre Jordan, where was this Saturday night during the Dunk Contest?

The Clippers’ big man threw down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from Russell Westbrook during the All-Star Game Sunday that was better than anything he did on Saturday night. Enjoy
