Jack Sanders Ferguson

Cavs Blogger Travels To Ferguson To Help Protestors

If you only know Jack Sanders from his Cavs-centric @WayneEmbrysKids Twitter account, maybe you think he’s crazy in a fun sort of way. If you only know Jack Sanders as Cleveland Jackson, and read his work here, maybe you’d agree with me in considering him one of the most talented writers anywhere on the internet. […]

Cleveland’s Brian Kortovich goes 1-on-1 with LeBron James in movie Trainwreck

“Trainwreck” is a major motion picture featuring Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James. That’s how I first heard about it.

While the comedy’s plot has been kept under wraps, […]

Chet Mason’s 5th Annual Hoop For Hunger Charity Game In Cleveland

The last time I caught up with Chet Mason was at his free inner-city youth basketball camp the day after LeBron James announced his decision to return to Northeast Ohio. Now, the overseas pro who starred at Cleveland South while winning Ohio’s Mr. Basketball is giving back to his community again with a charity basketball event […]

Looking back at all that’s changed since Cavs last beat the Brooklyn Nets

April 16, 2014 was an extremely regular Wednesday in Northeast Ohio. Jason Kidd was in town but his drink-spill-trick didn’t travel. He wouldn’t be wasting strategic gems like that in this contest. Instead, he rolled out a starting lineup that featured a player named Jorge Gutierrez at point guard. Gutierrez began the season as a member […]

The Dru Joyce Summer League has featured some of the area’s best local basketball talent since it began in 2010.

David Blatt Named Head Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers


Mary Schmitt-Boyer wrote my favorite basketball book with Wayne Embry. It’s called “Inside Game” and it’s an autobiography of Embry about his entire life. It reads like his unabridged and uncensored feelings about being hired as the GM of the Cavs, and then what his entire tenure was like, right up to his firing. It’s […]
