Couch Slouch: LeBron James demonstrates absurdity of Twitterverse

LeBron James unfollowed the Cleveland Cavaliers last week on Twitter, which apparently was the equivalent of the Pope skipping Easter Sunday Mass for a bingo tournament. There was a global uprising of sorts, which speaks to two phenomena – LeBron and Twitter – that have careened out of control.

Dellavedova returns

Matthew Dellavedova has hustled his way back to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dellavedova, who emerged as an unlikely postseason hero when All-Star guard Kyrie Irving was injured, signed a $1.2 million contract for next season on Monday. He had been a restricted free agent, and although the Cavs signed Mo Williams this summer to be Irving’s primary backup, the team wanted to keep Dellavedova because of the energy he brings off the bench. Dellavedova accepted the Cavs’ qualifying offer and he can be an unrestricted free agent next summer when the league’s salary cap will expand. He made $816,000 last season. The Australian has endeared himself to Cleveland fans, and his teammates adore “Delly” for his non-stop hustle and attitude. – AP

Cavaliers feel the pressure as time is running out in NBA Finals

SAN FRANCISCO – Too much was at stake for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The strain finally started showing. LeBron James was a little too angry over a meaningless non-call in the final minute of their Game 5 loss Sunday night. Cavaliers coach David Blatt was a tad defensive while describing why he ditched center Timofey Mozgov in favor of a small-ball lineup against the Golden State Warriors.

One for the road

OAKLAND, Calif. – Stephen Curry came off a screen, dribbled behind his back and crossed over Matthew Dellavedova. He stepped back and swished a 3-pointer, then pounded his chest and pointed to the roof, seemingly controlling the sellout crowd of 19,596 on his fingertips. One more win, and the MVP will really have a moment to celebrate.
