Byron Scott Agrees to Four-Year Contract

After a few months of teeter-totter, it is final: Byron Scott will be the next head coach for the Los
Angeles Lakers. This deal makes a ton of sense for the Lakers and will be a solid move for them into the future as they start to buckle-down for PKE, or Post Kobe Era. Scott, of course, was apart of the Showtime Lakers, back when LA was really good, and even better than the Clippers at that, and will be an awesome fit back in LA at the helm. Unfortunately for Coach Scott, his team is not very good. Kobe Bryant and newcomer Julius Randle seem to be the rightful cornerstones, as seen from a distance. Now, there is a strong possibility that with the additions of guard Jeremy Lin and forwards Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer, the Lakers look like they have a legitimate starting-five and very talented on-the-bench team. Lets not get too far ahead of ourselves now, there is still a lot of work to be done in the LAL offices.

LeBron Wearing Number 23 Again

News from several sources has indicated that LeBron James, the comeback hero, is returning to his old jersey number, which is 23. The general basketball population had figured LeBron was either wearing #6, his number for international play and Miami Heat, as well as his #23, which he abruptly took off before entering the locker room with his left game as a Cavalier back in 2010. A dark horse candidate, however, arose in #32 as LeBron wore it as a freshman in high school when he won a state championship. Number 32 also made sense because of LeBron's mission to preserve #23--because of Michael Jordan and his exit back in 2010--led several to believe #23 probably was not a legitimate option. All things aside, LeBron is making the right call going with #23. The team is home. The number is home. The king is home.

Video: Frank Caliendo Reads LeBron's Coming Home Letter As Morgan Freeman

Okay, I have never been a huge LeBron fan. I tend to favor the proverbial underdog, which he is, but after "The Decision" you cannot really blame me. Moving forward, LeBron's letter published on Sports Illustrated saying he is coming home and signing with Cleveland has brought me to the LeBron side. Yes, I am becoming a fan. So, in the spirit of LeBron's Homecoming, lets take a peak at some funny-doing by Frank Caliendo reading LeBron's letter with a Morgan Freeman voice.

2014-2015 Cleveland Cavaliers Projected Starters and Rotation Bench

One of the most interesting teams in the entire NBA next season to watch will be the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron is back, Kyrie is committed, owner Dan Gilbert and GM David Griffin won the battle of "Riggin' for Wiggins" and it is now finally starting to come together.

There are some rumors swirling around right now about the possibility of NBA superstar big-man Kevin Love being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers for newly drafted Andrew Wiggins. However, in reality, the likelihood that CLE trades Wiggins away is highly unlikely. LeBron, although he would probably like playing with Kevin Love, would maybe really enjoy helping Wiggins grow into one of the best players on the planet. With one of the NBA's best young point guards in Irving. and one of its most talented newcomers, Wiggins -- cough, cough, you still have Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett, cough, cough -- could really have one of the NBA's brightest futures in a long, long time.

Here is a projected depth chart for the Cavs next year:

PG - Irving
SG - Wiggins, Waiters, Miller
SF - James, Jones
PF - Thompson, Bennett
C - Varejao, Haywood

Look for the Cavs to maybe add more shooting and locker room experience with Ray Allen and add a true point guard, and one more big man who is long and can score with their back to the basket.
