Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors
The MTV Video Music Awards was televised Sunday night from Madison Square Garden, and once you finish your diatribe about how like MTV doesn’t even play videos anymore, man, you can learn about how the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Iman Shumpert appeared in Kanye West’s video for Fade, which he premiered during the show last night. The video stars an oiled up and barely clothed Teyana Taylor performing a Flashdance-esque dance to the song, and concludes with Shumpert, who is Taylor’s fiancé, joining her in the shower. Then Taylor transforms into a lion and she and Shumpert hold their child among a flock of sheep.

LeBron James hung out with Chris Paul on Saturday. They started their day with a workout, then went to a gastropub called Goose and Gander where they played UNO.

Mo Williams could be in his last week as a member of the Cavaliers. Williams, 33, a 13-year veteran and former All-Star who played a supporting role in the Cavs’ 2016 NBA championship, is strongly considering retirement, multiple sources told cleveland.com. Additionally, the “stretch” deadline in the NBA is approaching, which means that if a player is waived by Aug. 31 (Wednesday), the team can spread his salary out over a period of years — which could lessen the luxury tax penalty Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert will have to pay next summer.
