Tristan Thompson Q+A Up At SLAM

Check out my Q + A with Tristan Thompson over at SLAMonline when you get a chance. I caught up with Tristan on Thursday after practice, and our conversation was posted Friday afternoon just prior to game three at the Indiana Pacers. Here is an excerpt from that conversation:SLAM: Kyrie Irving has said that on […]

Game Two: When Things Felt Infinitely Better As Cavs Win By Sixteen

I was having a tough time after opening night. I had just spent a good portion of the offseason talking about how I thought Samardo Samuels was going to make an big impact this season he and didn’t even get into the game. Skyenga sat destined for the D-League, Kyrie Irving didn’t light the world […]

On Cavaliers At Pistons Tonight, And Norris Cole Last Night On TNT

The Cavaliers were certainly competitive with Lawrence Frank’s Detroit Pistons in their two-game preseason series, winning one of those two games that didn’t count for anything, so maybe that means they’ll be competitive again tonight when it does matter. The Pistons are also coming off an opening night loss of their own as well, albeit […]

Game One: Cleveland Cavaliers Lose 104-96 To The Toronto Raptors

It was a relatively rough outing on Monday for the Cleveland Cavaliers depending on what you were hoping for. Kyrie Irving’s NBA debut wasn’t awesome, neither was Omri Casspi’s Cavaliers debut, but at the same time Tristan Thompson exceeded most everyone’s expectations. Of the Cavaliers three core pieces 23-years old or younger, last night belonged […]

Byron Scott Talks Starting Point Guard After Practice Saturday

After the Cavaliers last practice to close training camp yesterday, Byron Scott said he made his decision on the opening night starter at PG but he hadn’t told either Kyrie Irving or Ramon Sessions what his answer was yet.  He also refereed to Kyrie Irving as a magician with the basketball. In response to a […]

Cleveland Cavaliers: Quantifying A Season Of Unquantifiable Expectations

I was considering the idea of recapping all Cavs games this season without referencing the final score. I’m sure nobody really noticed, but I didn’t mention the score in relation to either of the Cavaliers first two preseason games. It was going to be my subliminal way to express how little I valued the importance […]

I Didn’t Think Cavs Would Cut Manny Harris, But They Did

If you ever have the opportunity to step inside a cooling chamber at a Nike facility designed to help with your recovery from injuries DO NOT GO IN. That would be a major lesson learned here with the Cleveland Cavaliers decision to waive Guard Manny Harris. If Harris isn’t sidelined during training camp as a […]

Kyrie Irving’s Debut, And Other Thoughts From Friday Night In Detroit

The Detroit Pistons are not a good team. In addition to the obvious qualifiers like Friday’s Cavs / Pistons match-up was a preseason game following a four month lockout featuring two Rookie PG’s essentially matched-up against each other, we can’t gloss over the fact that Detroit will be awful this season.  This first performance from […]

Cavs Use Amnesty Clause on Baron Davis

Whether the Cavaliers saw enough from Kyrie Irving over this last week to determine Byron Scott was the only mentor he needed, they figured their veteran PG would probably be sidelined with injuries while under contract here anyways, or they simply wanted to do BD a favor and cut him loose now, the Cleveland Cavaliers […]
