NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers-Media Day Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone and welcome to today's 'Fear the Newsletter', where we get back in the swing of things after a long break.

If you have questions, concerns or complaints, drop me an e-mail at

Last night, LeBron James came out in support of Hilary Clinton and endorsed her for President. As it happens, Cavs owner Dan Gilbert recently held a fundraiser for Republican nominee Donald Trump. I, for one, would love to sit in on the conversation where Gilbert explains that to his socially aware star player.

LeBron has also put pressure on the Cavs to get a deal done with J.R. Smith. The two also attended Kanye West's show in Cleveland with most of the team on Saturday and partied in the general admission area. Having been at the show, I can confirm that Yeezy does not blow 3-1 leads in the NBA Finals while performing.

Other news: Kevin Love is done with your s***, the Cavs have a new court design and our own Trevor Magnotti wrote about Richard Jefferson and Mike Dunleavy's value.

If you're looking for a podcast to listen to, check out 'Locked on Cavaliers', a Cavs podcast in the 'Locked on Podcast' network. It's hosted by me and you can subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher and AudioBoom. Also follow the show on Twitter @LockedOnCavs and like it on Facebook. Also, drop an e-mail or mailbag question to the show at

If you need a sick Cavs or NBA t-shirt, go support FtS' Daniel Rowell over on TeePublic. You may or may not see the header of this newsletter on a t-shirt in his store.

That's it for today. We'll talk to you again on Monday after the Cavaliers' Wine & Gold scrimmage.
