THE LOVE PRESS CONFERENCE IN CLEVELAND

Kevin Love is tall and lean and, standing on the podium and holding up a Cavaliers jersey number 0, he is even taller.  It’s kind of weird sitting in the press conference and watching him in a three piece suit walking to the front of a group of writers and reporters and a cadre of […]

CAVALIER LOVE-IN. LONG TERM DEAL, AND A LONG AWAITED TRADE.

Cleveland appears to be looming as the center of the basketball world and home to the front runner candidates to be the next champions of the NBA.  After the last four years of writing about the transient glories in otherwise humbling and humiliating losing seasons, it’s almost inconceivable that the sentence prior to this could […]

David Blatt Named Head Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers

THE CAVALIERS 2014 OFFSEASON MAILBAG MANIFESTO

Mary Schmitt-Boyer wrote my favorite basketball book with Wayne Embry. It’s called “Inside Game” and it’s an autobiography of Embry about his entire life. It reads like his unabridged and uncensored feelings about being hired as the GM of the Cavs, and then what his entire tenure was like, right up to his firing. It’s […]

PodCAVS #46 IS LEBRON JAMES: UNBURNING THE JERSEY

“NOW THROW OUT THE YANKEES CAP” In July 2010, Lebron James left Cleveland in humiliating fashion.  At the time, he was regarded as one of the most reviled athletes in the history of Cleveland sports, considered by many to be on a level with Cleveland Browns former owner Art Modell. PodCAVS followed the Miami Heat […]

PODCAVS EPISODE 44: THE 2014 NBA DRAFT

“DO THE OBVIOUS THING” Year after year we’ve seen NBA draft classes hyped up only to subsequently be declared “weak” in the months and weeks before the actual draft takes place.  This year, it’s different.  The 2014 class has been hyped up more than any draft in a decade, and the hype has not let […]

HIRE MARK PRICE AS THE CAVS NEXT HEAD COACH

Mark Price remains the best choice for the Cavaliers to lead the team as head coach. Everything in the basketball universe is pointing to the logic behind Price being interviewed for and getting a job of head coach in the NBA, and specifically in Cleveland for the Cavaliers.  There are certain windows of opportunity for […]

THE ULTIMATE 2013-14 CAVALIERS MAILBAG MANIFESTO.

ZYDRUNAS ILGAUSKAS HAS NOT BEEN WITH THE CAVS THIS SEASON

Maybe the Cavaliers could have used a little more help from Zydrunas Ilgauskas this season. HE’S OUR RAFTER MAN. According to a report from the Morning Journal’s Bob Finan, Ilgauskas has not been with the team this season and decided last summer to take the year off.  There were rumors during the draft last summer […]

ELIMINATED… AAAAND, LOOKING AT THE ROOKS: DELLY, BENNETT AND SERGEY

There has never been a Cavaliers game in the history of the franchise with more team assists than the Cavs managed against the Pistons Wednesday night.   41 assists in one game, including 12 from rookie Matthew Dellavedova.  An NBA season high 26 in the first half.  These were astounding numbers, considering that one of […]

DION WAITERS SAYS HE “LOVES” KYRIE IRVING, “AS A FRIEND”

It was, perhaps, the most absurd press conference in the history of the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise.   Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters were assembled to address rumors that they did not like each other.  Waiters responded that he not only likes Irving, but that he “loves” him, albeit “as a friend”. IRVING AND WAITERS, COMFORTABLE […]

DESTROYING CAVALIER NARRATIVES: #CLARITY

It feels like a basketball town when 18,179 are in attendance for the Cavs on Saturday night in April to watch this game.  It’s an overtime loss that saw the Bobcats win in Cleveland by two in the extra frame, despite a career high 44 points from Kyrie Irving.  For context, the Cleveland Indians, playing […]
