Cavs have some more fun with hashtags

By Jeff Case

The Cleveland Cavaliers had some fun a year or so ago putting hashtags on some less-than-flattering photos of their teammates. Back then, Tristan Thompson and Kyrie Irving were the targets of this little game. This time, Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert are the crosshairs. Stick around for the end because Thompson has maybe the best hashtag of them all …

Kevin Love finally makes the postgame Cavs photo

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Cleveland Cavaliers enjoy posting group Instagram photos of themselves. The problem is, somehow Kevin Love keeps getting left out of the picture. As a result, Love recently had to edit himself into a team photo to make sure he got in there.

But last night, things finally changed in Love’s favor. After beating the Pacers in overtime, the Cavs posed for a team photo. And this time, they included Kevin Love. As he posted on Instagram, he was pretty excited about this…

POSTERIZED POLL Week of Dec. 8

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Like we always do at this time, let’s take a look at the best instances of people getting #POSTERIZED over the last week and, at the bottom of the post, you can place your vote for a winner. And don’t forget, if you see someone get posterized, tweet it with the hashtag #POSTERIZED so we don’t miss it!

Last week the POSTERIZED POLL went on a bit of a forced hiatus, as I had to spend POSTERIZED TUESDAY going back and forth to Philadelphia for Kobe Bryant‘s final appearance in his hometown. Which means we have more dunks than usual to sort through, which is a good thing.

And in honor of Kobe’s retirement announcement, let’s take a throwback look at the time Kobe #POSTERIZED the great Yao Ming

Finally, before we get to all the latest dunks, congratulations to last week’s winner, DeMar DeRozan!

Now, let’s go to the posters!

LeBron James’ mustache is spectacular

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The month of November has been re-branded as Movember, a month when men are encouraged to grow beards and mustaches as a way to raise awareness of prostate and other cancers. (You can read more about the movement here.) Several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be embracing the cause, such as Kevin Love, who has a full-on ’70s-cop-TV-show ‘stache…

But perhaps the greatest mustache in Cleveland belongs to LeBron James, who has managed to grow his mustache out long enough that yesterday he posted a selfie with the ends of his mustache waxed and curled up, Snidely Whiplash-style. It’s quite a look…

LeBron James Wins Halloween

By Nick Margiasso IV

A picture really is worth a thousand words.

But a moving picture of Cavaliers star LeBron James mimicking legendary musical artist Prince for Halloween? Well, that’s worth about a gazillion.

So, without further ado…

Yes there’s more…

LeBron and Cavaliers begin The Quest

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The NBA regular season tips off in just a few weeks, with the Cavaliers against the Bulls on TNT (Tuesday, Oct. 27, 8:00 p.m. EST). And to get people ready for the new season, TNT today dropped their new ad campaign about The Quest for a title. This first spot features LeBron James and a few of the Cavaliers (along with a special guest) as they begin their drive to return to the NBA Finals…

Also, here’s a little behind the scenes video about how this was made, including Kyrie admitting he looked up flag-waving on YouTube…

The Cleveland Cavaliers really liked this picture of them working out

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — You don’t have to be a detective to figure out that several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers gathered in Miami this weekend to get in a workout together. How do we know? They all posted the same picture on Instagram. Either there was a glitch in the matrix or they all really liked this photo…

Missing a couple but not forgotten. We on a mission! #TheLand #StriveForGreatness

Ty Lawson posts awesome #TBT picture

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — #TBT is the hashtag for “Throwback Thursday,” which is really just kinda of an excuse for people to post old photos on social media. But Rockets point guard Ty Lawson has historically been great at #TBT, and the photo he posted yesterday is no exception. Some of the guys who went on the have NBA careers, besides Lawson: Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Kyle Singler, Brandan Wright, Spencer Hawes. Not a bad collection of talent…

Now that's a #TBT.
