Cleveland Cavaliers are getting stronger and stronger by the day. The power that LeBron James possesses, eh?

SHAWN MARION TO CAVS? POSSIBLY RAY ALLEN?

It seems likely that free agent Shawn Marion will be confirmed as a player of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the next day or two, ESPN reports.

Via ESPN:

Sources told ESPN.com that Marion informed the Cavaliers this weekend that he intends to sign with them this month, despite the fact that Cleveland can only offer him a minimum deal.

The chance to play with LeBron James and immediately compete for a championship, sources said, clinched Marion’s decision to choose Cleveland in the face of a ramped-up pursuit by the Indiana Pacers

It also seems likely that Ray Allen will put off retirement and join the Cavs for a one-year deal. And LeBron said winning titles would take time.

JABARI PARKER DOESN’T WANT TO BE A BUST

Milwaukee Bucks rookie Jabari Parker does not want to be a second pick bust.

Jabari Parker was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the second overall pick in this year’s draft, but instead of feeling some sense of entitlement given his level of talent and lofty position on the draft board, he’s well aware of how players who were similarly picked at two have fared over the years. 

“There’s been a lot of second pick busts,” Parker said Saturday morning, at the grand opening of the redesigned Jordan space inside Nike Chicago. 

“I’m just trying not to be that bust. Everyday that I step on the court, I just remind myself that I have a long ways to go. If I want to be one of those guys in the first tier of the NBA, like a LeBron, like a Kobe, like a [Blake Griffin], then I have to have that mentality starting off from the ground, and work my way up.”
