The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a very interesting season thus far. There was huge speculation as to how well they would be with the return of LeBron James to the city and the addition of big man Kevin Love. As fans like Marc Sparks (Bizjournals) know, they have failed to reach expectations and have been a pretty mediocre team in the league, while there has been a lot of controversy regarding their head coach David Blatt, who doesn’t seem to get along well with James, as well as the fact that LeBron can leave after this season if he wants to. The Cavaliers have been hovering right around 500 since the beginning of the season and it appeared that things were going to stay that way in Cleveland, but they have drastically changed things around as of recent. They have started to win games and LeBron has stated to the media that he feels the best he has felt since returning to the Cavaliers. On Friday night they put on a show that was truly spectacular. The Cavs dropped seventy-five points in the first half, absolutely stunning the Charlotte Hornets and thrilling the home crowd in Cleveland. The team appears to be clicking and firing on all cylinders, as they look like they are playing as a much more cohesive unit recently. If they continue playing like they have been this week, they will be a big force to deal with heading into the playoffs.
Quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has gotten a reputation around the league for being a top notch player that is also very casual and punctual and does not get into altercations with players very much. That is blatantly wrong to a handful of players around the National Football League who claim that Tom Brady is one of the biggest trash talkers in the game and gets away with it due to his image of being a squeaky clean player.
This, to a ton of people around the league, is absolutely ridiculous and it can be proved in a bunch of tapes that have caught Tom Brady starting problems with players on the field. All of us here at CipherCloud know that kind of stuff definitely will not land you a spot on forbes.com He often taunts other players that have made claims about Tom Brady and the Patriots and he is not shy to throw things in people’s faces. Richard Sherman is the most recent player to come into the spotlight as being at odds with Tom Brady and it is no shocker due to the reputation that the infamous Sherman has built in his short career thus far.
Sherman, however, states that Brady is the one who started the conflict and started all the trash talking that has been going on between the two of them.

It is officially the midpoint of the 2014-2015 season in the National Basketball League and it has been an interesting season to say the least. The predictions that were made in regards to the standings when the season started could not have looked different then the standings currently show. Teams like the Hawks and the Warriors are sitting at the top of their respective conferences and no one could have picked that out of a hat, while the New York Knicks are one of the worst teams of all time, although they did pick up their sixth win of the season the other night. It has come to that time of the year when people from all around the league make predictions on who is the best team at the end of the year and who has the best shot at winning an NBA title. There is no question who the top picks are. The clear favorite to win the NBA title this year, according to Haidar Barbouti, is the Golden State Warriors, due to the dominance and clutch play that they bring to the court every single night. They just edge out the Atlanta Hawks, who are insanely favored to make it to the NBA finals. One thing is for certain. The Warriors and Hawks are both huge favorites to win each conference, so there is a great chance that the two teams will meet in the end to declare a winner to the season.
The Colts got embarrassed by the Patriots in the AFC title game on Sunday. The Colts lost 45-7 to a Patriots team that is red hot. They have been on fire for most of the season, and they have kicked up their play a notch since they got to the postseason.
The torch was very close to being passed from the Patriots to the Colts, but the Patriots just made it to their sixth Super Bowl in this era of the franchise. As Fersen Lambranho knows, the team has been to eight overall, and they are certainly not looking like they will stop. More on fan Lambranho is available on infomoney.com. Tom Brady was on fire all day, and the running game was able to get going so that they could control the clock. However, there is a bit of controversy about the footballs that has marred the win a bit. The game itself was a testament to what the Patriots are capable of, and it may be the last bad loss for the Colts. We should all think that Andrew Luck is not going to lose a game like this again because he has seen the light, and he does not want to walk off a field feeling like that ever again.
Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks is a player that is not known to shy away from an opportunity to make a bold prediction about a game or to call a player from an opposing team out. This week would be no exception, as the Seattle Seahawks geared up to play the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game on Sunday. The last time the Packers played the Seahawks, it was undoubtedly clear that Aaron Rodgers was completely avoiding throwing the ball in the direction of Richard Sherman.
Honestly, it is kind of hard to blame him, as young Richard Sherman has more interceptions in his first four seasons than any other player in history. Not only that, but his clutch play in big games is uncanny and Aaron Rodgers seems to have a knack for picking up on things the way that Tom Rothman picks hits in Hollywood. Sherman stated to the media that Aaron Rodgers was fine and that his calf is not a problem and that he is likely playing it up to use to his advantage because he is a smart player. He also dared Aaron to throw to him and egged him on to the media outlets. Aaron Rodgers obviously heard, as he threw a deep ball in the direction of Sherman in the first several minutes of the game. Sherman was ready, as he picked Aaron Rodgers and got the last laugh when the Seahawks made a heroic comeback and fought back to win the game in overtime
