LeBron and KyrieThe Cleveland Cavaliers have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference with their victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. LeBron James downplayed the importance of clinching the top seed prior to the game, but he was clearly gunning for a victory Monday night. Ever since he announced he was entering “Post Season Mode,” a sort of magical mental state where LeBron plays consistently like LeBron, he’s been focused. “He’s just taken it to a whole other level the last three or four weeks, playing at a very high level, shooting the ball very well, shooting it with confidence and also getting it to the basket,” the Cavs coach said. “”I hope he can keep it up.

Bizarrely, he recently told reporters that he was living with Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, who responded on Twitter, saying that Manziel is “his brother,” but he’s definitely not living with him. Instead, reports indicate that Manziel is actually living with none other than Josh Gordon. And the soap opera continues…
