Breaking Down Alonzo Gee’s Game Winner

I was looking for a pick-and-roll between Dion Waiters and Anderson Varejao last night on the Cavaliers final possession. Byron Scott put the ball in Waiters' hands and it looked as if the Varejao screen was indeed an option. I'm not sure if Waiters waved it off, or Varejao made that read, but no ball-screen […]

Anderson Varejao should win the NBA’s Most Improved this season

Anderson Varejao should be an All-Star. We've been over this. He's a 14 and 14 guy who's playing out of his mind every night even though it's completely obvious his team will lose before each game ever begins. Maybe that effort will be rewarded with a trip to Houston for ASW. Maybe it won't. Regardless, I do […]

Anderson Varejao, we are still in awe despite the losing

Anderson Varejao is an All-Star. While sharing a court with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol on Monday night, he was also the best big man on the floor. The Cavaliers fumbling away a fourth quarter lead doesn't dismiss that simple fact. In some ways, I suppose, it even highlights what Varejao is doing on a nightly […]

Cavs played hard in Miami, which is all I was really hoping for

The beating that Ryan and them put on him felt like way more than one win. I was actually surprised to realize he had won six of seven times already. The team splits, however, could possibly be spun into something encouraging.  There were only four other NBA teams he's averaged less points against for his […]

What we learned from Cavs 171-169 marathon win over Sixers

Cavs fans have been challenged to process an overwhelming amount of new information since Sunday. Kyrie Irving is now out of the lineup. Tristan Thompson is wearing a mask. The first trip to Philadelphia for Dion Waiters is over. CJ Miles is back up off Byron's bench while Daniel Gibson is now injured and on […]

Kyrie Irving Projected Out for Next Four Weeks According to Team

The Cleveland Cavaliers sent a release out tonight indicating that Kyrie Irving could be out for up to four weeks while recovering from a "hairline/non-displaced fracture of his contused left index finger". I am translating this to read his finger is real jacked up and he'll be out for a while because of it.   […]

Dion Waiters going back to Philadelphia and the Cavs defense

Dion Waiters will play his first real NBA game in his hometown of Philadelphia later on tonight. He'll come in averaging 14.7 points on 41 percent shooting through nine games to go along with 2.2 assists and 2.4 rebounds. The last time he played in Philly was during the preseason. On October 17th, Waiters finished 2-9 […]

Counterpoint: Cavs Should Trade Anderson Varejao

This is probably going to make me unpopular.  But I don't care.  The Cavs have to trade Anderson Varejao. Plain and simple. I'm not going to even touch upon what's a fair trade or what he could bring back in a trade; that's for Chris Grant to decide. But after watching Varejao torch the Brooklyn […]

Lack of Talent…Trade an All-Star!

Any financial planner worth his salt would caution you to diversify and advise that the worst thing you can do is try to time the market.  I happen to agree.  I believe trying to construct an NBA team in OKC’s image under the new CBA is the NBA version of trying to time the market.  […]

Good times last night despite the loss

Big thanks to everybody who made it out to Two Bucks last night for the Terrell Brandon Appreciation night Tweet-Up. It was a fun time talking Cavs basketball with everybody despite the fact that the good guys fell to Kris Humphries and the Brooklyn Nets. Major props go out to

Terrell Brandon Appreciation Night Tweet-Up on Tuesday at Two Bucks

The Terrell Brandon Appreciation Night Tweet-Up is on Tuesday, November 13th, at Two Bucks North Olmsted. We are having this Tweet-Up to celebrate the career of Terrell Brandon. The event is also scheduled to coincide with the release of CAVS ZINE 3. I interviewed Terrell for this year's issue. He said he was thrilled to […]

Week 2 In Review…Roller Coaster Cavs

With seven games and two weeks in the books for the wine and gold you can start to see trends taking shape, some good and some bad.  In the end the Cavs started the week out with a buzz and ended it with a whimper.  Such ups and downs should be expected from a team […]

Cavs at Suns: Sifting through an epic collapse

The score was 42-16, early second quarter. At that moment, I very well may have been the cockiest Cavaliers fan on the planet. Anderson Varejao was going to the All-Star game, I tweeted. Cleveland was obviously far superior to all things Phoenix, Arizona. The only thing the Suns had going for themselves was how they […]

Reasons for crazed enthusiasm following Cavs win over Clippers

There are so many reasons why the Cavs win over the Clippers last night has me leaping out of bed this morning. Dion Waiters was Dion “Freaking” Waiters for the first time in his Cavaliers’ career. He had that swag we’d been hearing about all summer turned way up for his first performance in Hollywood […]
