Thanks to the addition of hometown hero LeBron James, as well as the soon-to-be addition of Kevin Love, Cleveland Cavaliers fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2014-15 NBA Schedule. After weeks of anticipation, the schedule was finally released last night which revealed the full 82 game schedule for the Cavs. If you are a fan of LeBron, the Cavs or just the NBA in general, here are the top five games you should be watching:

vs. New York Knicks

Date/Time: October 30, 2014 at 8 p.m.

The home opener. The game all of Cleveland (and probably the entire state of Ohio) has been dreaming about since LeBron announced he was coming home. It will be the first real game for the new-look Cavaliers which feature not only James, but also Kevin Love, who will be playing his first real minutes for the home team.

Top 5 Reasons the NFL Preseason is Worth Watching

Top 5 Reasons the NFL Preseason is Worth Watching

The NFL Preseason officially kicks-off its full schedule tonight (if you don't count the Hall of Fame Game from last Sunday) and I could not be any more excited. Sure, preseason games don't really count, but there are still plenty of great reasons to be invested in the preseason this year. Here are my top five reasons why you should be watching:

Cures Your NFL Football Withdrawal

When the clock hit zero in the Super Bowl on February 2nd, football fans everywhere immediately went into football withdrawal. Sundays were not the same. Monday nights were not the same. Food stopped having flavor. Colors were not as bright. The last two may be a stretch, but not by much. While the preseason is just exhibition games, getting to see your favorite players suit up and hit the field still gives you that dose of football that you were longing for.

What People Are Talking About

Batkid Begins

You probably remember Batkid, the adorable 5-year-old who had leukemia and was subsequently granted a wish (as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation) to become a superhero. San Francisco was transformed to Gotham City, and Batkid came to the rescue, taking on villains and meeting his gracious fans. Well, his transformation into Batman is nearly complete — Batkid is getting a movie. "Batkid Begins" is an upcoming documentary about the day his wish came true. Batkid (real identify: Miles Scott) is currently in remission, so happy news all around!

When I woke up this morning, I had no idea what an important day that today was. That was until I saw this tweet from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter:

50 days! I couldn't believe the season was that close. As a football junkie, I wish that the football season went all year long, but alas, it doesn't. So the football shaped hole in my heart has been filling itself with anticipation for the upcoming season. The more I thought about the season that is oh so close, I started thinking about all the things I'm looking forward to this football season. The list was getting long, so I said let's do 50 reasons to look forward to the 2014 season. Here we go:

1. Johnny Football

2. Fantasy Football

3. NFL Red Zone

4. Because 'Merica

5. Bad Lip Reading Videos

6. Finally back to REAL football after watching too much soccer

7. Super Bowl

8. Touchdown Celebrations

9. Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning

10. Excuse to eat more buffalo wings

July 2014 Events Image

It's the middle of summer and there are two kinds of people: those who want to spend some time outside, basking in the sun, and those who want nothing more than to take shelter in the nearest air conditioned building. Thankfully, there's live entertainment in both camps this month.

For those wishing to soak up the sun, there are several tours that visit outdoor arenas, like Phish and Justin Timberlake, as well as a handful of outdoor festivals, including Summerfest and Pitchfork Music Festival. There are also baseball games jam-packed through July.

But for a break from the heat, wrestling events such as WWE Background might do the trick, or there are theater events, including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which Neil Patrick Harris will soon be leaving, and Marvel Universe Live!, a superhero-filled, live action adventure people of all ages will enjoy.

Here's a closer look at what's happening this July.

Concerts

Justin Timberlake: The pop singer kicks off his second North American leg for The 20/20 Experience World Tour on July 9. Timberlake will first visit Buffalo, NY, and is scheduled to wrap his tour just before Christmas, on Dec. 20.
