How are you liking the city of Cleveland? Kevin Love: I live downtown so I'm only a couple blocks away from where we play so it is super easy and efficient to get around. The practice facility is one of the best in the entire league. It is also a foodie town and nostalgically it kind of reminds me of Portland in a lot of ways. Except for the rain, there is a lot of snow and wind off of Lake Erie. That is fine with me though. I came from Minnesota so it wasn't too hard to adjust. CBSSports.com

Rasheed Wallace owes more than $150,000 in unpaid property taxes. His wife submitted an electronic payment last week for $34,686 dollars but when the county went to get the funds, they were told the account is not valid.

Bill Walton loves bikes. From his college days riding to class at UCLA to his daily ride through Northwest Portland to practice at the Rose Garden, bicycling has always been a part of Walton's life. So, when the nearly seven-foot tall, Hall of Fame basketball legend and member of the Portland Trail Blazers 1977 NBA Championship team visited Portland for a speaking gig earlier this month, he used the trip as a perfect excuse to put in some miles on the open road.
