LeBron […]

Recapping a 25-point W, and an old Delonte story

If its true that losing builds character, its also true that manhandling the best team in the NBA, on Christmas day, at their place, with the NBA-world watching, builds confidence.  Sunday night in Cleveland that confidence was on display by way of a 108-83 beat down of  the Houston Rockets, and it appears the floodgates are officially open.  You might have worried […]

Merry Christmas Mamba

Hello again Cavs fans. What a game.  A game that had all the intensity of summer hoops and all the physicality of a Sunday in the NFL.  Our Cavs rose to the occasion and catapulted themselves right back into “the discussion.”  Although in my eyes they’ve been there all along considering we’re now 8-3 vs winning […]

With the holiday’s upon us, and the turn of the decade near, I felt it only right that we as Cavs’ fans take a moment to reflect, and be thankful.  While we sometimes find ourselves wishing this team had a stretch four, or a back-up PG, or a better play to run at the end […]
