David Blatt Named Head Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers

Talking David Blatt and the Cavs on CBS Radio in Cleveland

I was a guest of the “Ken Carman Show” on CBS Radio’s 92.3 The Fan a couple times last week. This past Friday, we talked about Andrew Wiggins, Joe Harris and the Cavaliers Draft while looking out toward free agency. The time before, we broke down the hiring of David Blatt.  You can listen to that […]

Stepien Rules Andrew Wiggins

LeBron James, Andrew Wiggins and the Cavaliers No. 1 Pick

We now live in a galaxy of the NBA universe where it seems reasonable to suggest that LeBron James could return to the Cleveland Cavaliers next season. There is even a portion of my brain that believes it might actually happen. Just before swerving off the road into on-coming traffic yesterday, I even considered the […]


PodCavs #45: More Draft Talk with Joe Kotoch

In the newest episode of PodCavs, Alex and Jack talk with their producer Kasey about the upcoming NBA Draft, then interview Joe Kotoch from (@probballdraft) going over the impact of the Embiid injury as well as trying to answer the ultimate debate of the month : Wiggins vs. Parker. They also touched on the newly […]


My conversation at SLAM with Jarnell Stokes

Jarnell Stokes is the best overall rebounder in the 2014 NBA Draft. He’s a 6-8 power forward who prides himself on playing a physical brand of basketball that’s both punishing and effective. If he is available at pick 33 on June 26, that would be a steal for the Cleveland Cavaliers. But I highly doubt […]

Price and Kemba

Mark Price remains in strong consideration for Cavs head coaching job

Maybe David Griffin read the article written by Cleveland Jackson on May 15. Maybe he even asked Chris Grant to reconsider the hiring of Mike Brown after reading our interview last April. Or maybe he simply believes that Mark Price is the best candidate for the head coaching position with the Cleveland Cavaliers because game […]


Joel Embiid is the pick Cavs must make at number one

I was driving on the Shoreway toward downtown yesterday. The sunroof was open and radio on as I glanced out over the lake. It was another beautiful day in Cleveland, but in my mind it was June 26. ‘Joel Embiid is going to love it here,’ I thought to myself. ‘I wonder if he’ll wear that […]


My conversation at SLAM with Rodney Hood

Back when the Cleveland Cavaliers were slated to select ninth overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, I had settled on Rodney Hood as my primary target. The work that Hood put in this past season, as a 6-8 SG/SF from Duke University, was largely overshadowed by the star of Jabari Parker. For those who were […]

The day the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery again

I decided to eat lunch with Rodney Hood and Dario Saric on Tuesday afternoon. I had followed the careers of each prospect over the last couple years. I’m a fan of both players. I believe their games will eventually translate at the next level. But with the NBA Draft Lottery looming, I needed to develop […]


Kyrie Irving returns to bolster Cavs playoff chances down stretch

The Cleveland Cavaliers were required to beat the Orlando Magic on Wednesday in order to maintain any hope of qualifying for the postseason. In dominating fashion, by a score of 119-98, they accomplished specifically that. The Magic may not have necessarily wanted to win but that’s beside the point. It was a critical game for this […]



I’m not interested in celebrating the simple fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing meaningful games in April for the first time in four years. But I’m also not opposed that simple fact, either. I understand this moment in Cavs history has arrived almost entirely by default. The Eastern Conference is historically bad and a […]

Henry Sims Helps Sixers Snap Streak To Stay Tied With Cavs

Henry Sims began the 2013-14 campaign as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. He appeared in 20 games for Cleveland, averaging 2.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 8.4 minutes of work on a nightly basis. The Georgetown product played his last game for the Wine and Gold on February 19. He was then traded to […]

Cavaliers Overseas: Catching up with Darnell Jackson

Darnell Jackson helped lead the Kansas Jayhawks to a national championship before arriving in Cleveland for the 2008-09 campaign. Despite a wrist injury that forced him to miss time at the beginning of the season, Jackson appeared in 51 games for the Cavs as a rookie. While earning minutes in support of a big man […]


The surreal, nostalgic and memorable from halftime at Z Night

Larry Nance was seated alongside Nate Thurmond. Austin Carr and Bobby "Bingo" Smith were to his left. The cutting-edge video tribute roared through the arena with creativity and grace as the legendary Wayne Embry approached the podium. From the designated media area in section 106, I stood watching, listening and remembering. He recalled a European […]
