In our first broadcast since ringing in this past June’s NBA Draft Live on location from Mullarkey’s Irish Pub, we here at Stepien Rules are happy to announce that The Wine and Gold Show will be back for a new series of regularly scheduled broadcasts starting tomorrow.
In what will eventually be our third season, teamed up with our boy Glenn Moore from The Dugout Sports Show, we will tip things off Tuesday at 7:00 pm EST to talk Cleveland Cavaliers and their prospects heading into this upcoming NBA season.
We will have a live call-in number and active chat-room as usual, and will be sure to follow up with that link via twitter sometime tomorrow. The plan is to go for about thirty minutes, this and every Tuesday leading up to the end of this lockout, and then amp up our coverage heading into each and every game as we have in season’s past from there. So check back in with us on that tomorrow night if you get the chance.
As for some other Cavaliers news and notes, there’s a couple topics I touched on over the weekend at WaitingForNextYear.com if you hadn’t caught those yet. The first is on the Retirement Party I’m hoping Zydrunas Ilgauskas throws for himself in Cleveland, where he invites Cavalier fans to come celebrate the occasion with him. I even offered to help Big Z organize the event, and that link is here - no word back from Ilgauskas on that as of yet though. I also posted one yesterday on Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson’s appearance, together for the first time as Cavs, in the Chris Paul Charity game over the weekend too; here is the link on that also.
If you’re out there looking to scroll through a tremendously thorough list of NBA statistics on this rainy day in Cleveland by chance, I’ll leave you with this last recommendation as well: check out what the guys over at Golden State of Mind put together late last week. They calculated the NBA Leaders last season in Dunks, Lay-ups, Tip-Ins, and Hook Shots through an analysis that had to take a pretty long time, and our boy Ryan Hollins shook out in the top-10 as far as dunks per 100 possessions were concerned. Sixth overall, actually, so shouts out to Ryno on that. All for now, be back tomorrow.
