Dion Waiters caught up with Rise24 Online during his DreamChasers Sports & Entertainment Summit last month and discussed his expectations for this season.

Andrew Bynum Meets With Mavericks As Cavs Await Decision

On Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers have offered unrestricted free agent Andrew Bynum an incentive-based, two-year contract worth approximately $24 million. The deal is also said to include a team option in year two, but you already knew all that.   He has since met with the Atlanta Hawks […]

Talking Cavs with Josh Smith following Hawks win in Cleveland

Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith is an unrestricted free agent this summer. So far this year he's led Atlanta to the third-best record in the Eastern Conference. He's handled himself like a true professional too, while averaging 16.6 points and 8.2 rebounds per night. Smith has never played in an All-Star game before, but at 27 years […]

Good times on All Bets Are Off

Had a great time on All Bets Are Off last night on Sports Time Ohio. Gene and Ashley made things very easy for me and I appreciate ABAO extending the invite. My only hope is that I didn't hurt ratings too bad in the process. If you happened to miss the episode don’t worry. My Dad DVR’d […]

Thoughts on Cavaliers cutting Sloan, signing Shaun Livingston

Donald Sloan is a good dude. He did not deserve to be cut on Christmas Day by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Unfortunately for Sloan, Shaun Livingston was cut on December 23 and the Cavs had until 5pm on the 25th to sign him by league rules. The Cavaliers felt Livingston was a better option so Sloan is […]

Shopping through list of 2013 unrestricted free agents for Cavs

Standing in line recently, while wrapping up another successful holiday shopping effort, my mind began drifting towards the Cleveland Cavaliers. Specifically, which of the 2013 unrestricted NBA free agents should the Cavaliers be targeting? I also thought about the 46-131 overall record they've amassed since 2010 but quickly dismissed that. I decided to instead focus […]

On Tristan Thompson’s double-doubles and Luke Walton’s monster night

Tristan Thompson continues to bring energy every night. He might not have improved as much offensively as some would've hoped for this summer, but he is trending upward statistically at the moment. Thompson has now double-double'd eight times in 29 games this season after his Varejao-ish 14-point, 14-rebound effort in Milwaukee on Saturday.  Last season […]

Drew Gooden says Anderson Varejao has always been this skilled

On July 23, 2004, the Cleveland Cavaliers acquired Drew Gooden and Anderson Varjeao in a trade with the Orlando Magic for Tony Battie and two second round draft picks. For the next three seasons, Gooden and Varejao were teammates in Cleveland. Not only did they share time at the power forward position specifically, they also practiced against […]

C.J. Miles talks about his slump and how he’s broken through it

C.J. Miles finished with 17 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. He's now averaging 10.0 points per game for the season.  Over the last six games, Miles has scored 18.5 per night to get himself up to double-figures for the first time as a Cavalier. This after averaging only 4.5 in his […]

Game Blogs, Kyrie Irvng’s Return and More Cavs Zines

I accepted a job writing for the Bleacher Report’s NBA Division in October. I’ve been writing NBA-related articles for B/R since before this season began. Maybe you saw the tweets, read an article, or sat looking at a byline one day wondering where you saw that name before. Regardless, I just thought I'd mention. It’s been a blessing to […]

Kevin Jones makes his NBA debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers

Kevin Jones dominated the D-League this season. In five games he averaged 23.6 points and 12.6 rebounds on 53 percent shooting. During the Cavaliers 91-73 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, he earned his way onto the NBA floor for the first time. It's possible that Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters helped out by […]

Anderson Varejao is in Hall of Fame company this season

Anderson Varejao is averaging 15.2 points and 15.4 rebounds per game heading into tonight's matchup with the Chicago Bulls.  He's also shooting 52.2 percent from the floor overall and 77.7 percent from the free throw line. To that point, Dave Wooley (

The Hickson returns, helps Trail Blazers beat Cavs in double OT

J.J. Hickson was on the cover of the first Cavs Zine. Nothing can ever happen to change that. We had high hopes for J.J. as a Cavalier once too, but sometimes the NBA gods have other plans. He ended up in Sacramento for a time last season and things were looking pretty bad. Good news […]
