Titled "The Offs," Shumpert references each member of the roster at least once, including injured Anderson Varejao, who was lost in December with a torn Achilles. Even head coach David Blatt has a line in the song. Shumpert, who was seen playing the harmonica in the locker room following games, enjoys making music in his free time, even laying down a track in 2012 titled, "Knicks Anthem." His Cavs' playoff anthem features this refrain: "The only way to pick up is to get your funky jazz down." Shumpert also refers to himself as "one of those most wanted thieves in the league."

No phone. No Twitter. No Instagram. LeBron James has once again gone into lockdown mode during the NBA playoffs. For the fourth straight postseason, Cleveland's superstar is trying to shield himself from the outside world, saying he doesn't need any distractions while he and the Cavs chase a title. "I don't have no phones, no social media, I don't have anything," James said following Tuesday's morning shootaround as the Cavs prepared to host the Boston Celtics in Game 2. "I don't care about nonsense. There's too much nonsense out there. Not during this time, this is when I lock in right now and I don't need nothing creeping into my mind that don't need to be there." USA Today Sports

“And of course, you’ve got guys like (Steph) Curry who’s blowing up into a superstar and (Klay) Thompson has a huge year and Draymond Green, is looking like he may be the steal of the draft two years ago, and (Andrew) Bogut is a solid foundation defensively on any basketball court. “The two teams that I thought stood out, in my mind, were the Clippers and Cleveland, and Golden State, I think to me, is also a team that right now is substantially probably a little bit better than anybody else and if they can keep the orchestra playing with everybody involved, they’re my favorite right now.” CSNBayArea.com

Kendrick Perkins never ceases to be amazed by his ex-Celts captain, Paul Pierce. But as much as Pierce was his old trash-talking self during Washington’s win Saturday over Toronto, the Cavaliers center found himself wanting more. “I actually thought that they maybe should have gone to him a little more down the stretch,” Perkins said when asked about the Pierce 3-pointer that sent the game into overtime. “I don’t know if the Wizards know what kind of a killer they’ve got over there.” Boston Herald
