LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are at odds over the superstar's view of the organization's payroll spending, ESPN reported on Thursday, citing multiple sources.

James has been critical of the organization during the team's losing stretch, which extended to six of the last eight games following Wednesday's 116-112 loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Zach LaVine has decided against dunking for a three-peat.

The Minnesota Timberwolves' guard won the slam dunk contest at All-Star weekend each of the past two seasons but announced that he won't compete in this season's event in New Orleans.
