My conversation at SLAM with Rodney Hood

Back when the Cleveland Cavaliers were slated to select ninth overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, I had settled on Rodney Hood as my primary target. The work that Hood put in this past season, as a 6-8 SG/SF from Duke University, was largely overshadowed by the star of Jabari Parker. For those who were […]

PODCAVS EPISODE 44: THE 2014 NBA DRAFT

“DO THE OBVIOUS THING” Year after year we’ve seen NBA draft classes hyped up only to subsequently be declared “weak” in the months and weeks before the actual draft takes place.  This year, it’s different.  The 2014 class has been hyped up more than any draft in a decade, and the hype has not let […]

The day the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Draft Lottery again

I decided to eat lunch with Rodney Hood and Dario Saric on Tuesday afternoon. I had followed the careers of each prospect over the last couple years. I’m a fan of both players. I believe their games will eventually translate at the next level. But with the NBA Draft Lottery looming, I needed to develop […]

HIRE MARK PRICE AS THE CAVS NEXT HEAD COACH

Mark Price remains the best choice for the Cavaliers to lead the team as head coach. Everything in the basketball universe is pointing to the logic behind Price being interviewed for and getting a job of head coach in the NBA, and specifically in Cleveland for the Cavaliers.  There are certain windows of opportunity for […]

ZYDRUNAS ILGAUSKAS HAS NOT BEEN WITH THE CAVS THIS SEASON

Maybe the Cavaliers could have used a little more help from Zydrunas Ilgauskas this season. HE’S OUR RAFTER MAN. According to a report from the Morning Journal’s Bob Finan, Ilgauskas has not been with the team this season and decided last summer to take the year off.  There were rumors during the draft last summer […]

ELIMINATED… AAAAND, LOOKING AT THE ROOKS: DELLY, BENNETT AND SERGEY

There has never been a Cavaliers game in the history of the franchise with more team assists than the Cavs managed against the Pistons Wednesday night.   41 assists in one game, including 12 from rookie Matthew Dellavedova.  An NBA season high 26 in the first half.  These were astounding numbers, considering that one of […]

DION WAITERS SAYS HE “LOVES” KYRIE IRVING, “AS A FRIEND”

It was, perhaps, the most absurd press conference in the history of the Cleveland Cavaliers franchise.   Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters were assembled to address rumors that they did not like each other.  Waiters responded that he not only likes Irving, but that he “loves” him, albeit “as a friend”. IRVING AND WAITERS, COMFORTABLE […]

DESTROYING CAVALIER NARRATIVES: #CLARITY

It feels like a basketball town when 18,179 are in attendance for the Cavs on Saturday night in April to watch this game.  It’s an overtime loss that saw the Bobcats win in Cleveland by two in the extra frame, despite a career high 44 points from Kyrie Irving.  For context, the Cleveland Indians, playing […]

Kyrie Irving returns to bolster Cavs playoff chances down stretch

The Cleveland Cavaliers were required to beat the Orlando Magic on Wednesday in order to maintain any hope of qualifying for the postseason. In dominating fashion, by a score of 119-98, they accomplished specifically that. The Magic may not have necessarily wanted to win but that’s beside the point. It was a critical game for this […]

MEANINGFUL GAMES IN APRIL, DELLAVEDOVA’S IMPACT AND THE HOPSON ERA

I’m not interested in celebrating the simple fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers are playing meaningful games in April for the first time in four years. But I’m also not opposed that simple fact, either. I understand this moment in Cavs history has arrived almost entirely by default. The Eastern Conference is historically bad and a […]
