The Cleveland Cavaliers are the hottest team in the Eastern Conference right now. In the NBA overall, only the Houston Rockets have won more than the six-straight games Cleveland has through Thursday morning.

I saw the best fans of my generation manipulated into madness, iced over in below zero windchills, slogging themselves through the freezing streets at 6:00 PM looking for the solace and peace of a victorious fix.  Angels each, starving for that purest connection to the primal snowflaked unblinking stars in those icy machine-gears…  of Chris Grantland.

Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Anthony Bennett, Andrew Bynum, Luol Deng, Chris Grant, Mike Brown and David Griffin. In some order, those are the major stories of the 2013-14 Cleveland Cavaliers to date.

Cavaliers open David Griffin Era with victory over Wizards

Part of me felt obligated to write some sort of professional obituary commemorating Chris Grant’s time as General Manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. But I really didn't want to. Instead, I stepped away from the chaos by publishing an article about a creative floral designer from Michigan. What’s there to really say about […]

Austin Carr Day

Austin Carr Day At Malley’s: Sundaes For 34 Cents

Austin Carr's retired jersey was ruthlessly stolen from the Quicken Loans Arena rafters recently. The bandits are still at large and potentially disgracing Carr's No. 34 by using it as a giant table cloth. Malley's Chocolate, however, is rallying support for Carr by celebrating his legacy with $0.34 Ice Cream Sundaes. Amidst the pattern of […]

Me, Myself & Irene: Analyzing the 3 sides of Chris Grant

I hated everything about the summer of 2010. Of course July brought LeBron James’s “Decision,” when the game’s best player bolted Cleveland on national TV to join forces with All Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. But before LeBron left, the Cavs relieved two figures instrumental to Cleveland’s run of five consecutive playoffs […]


A Brief Oral History of Anthony Bennett’s Career Night against New Orleans

The last train to Canton appears to be canceled indefinitely. Sometime Tuesday afternoon, a decision had been made. In the same arena where Austin Carr's jersey once proudly hung until it mysteriously didn't, Anthony Bennett would be scheduled for 30-plus minutes of NBA action. No matter what.   The Cleveland Cavaliers defense is collectively horrible […]


Mike Brown Revenge Game: Deng and Varejao Lead Cavs to Victory

Mike Brown was unceremoniously discharged by the Los Angeles Lakers five games into the 2012-13 season. He then returned to the Staples Center to face a depleted version of his former team coming off a 44-point loss to the Sacramento Kings. Mike Brown is not saying I told you guys I was coming back for […]


Luol Deng was acquired by the Cavaliers for basically nothing, but his presence changed everything.  Like we were different people in a different time with different thoughts and different expectations, with young hearts and fresh eyes.  Players slipped instead of squeezed into roles, the basketball moved freely, and inches of space to shoot became feet. […]


Cavaliers celebrate Luol Deng with biggest win of the season

The Cavaliers looked like a team who is pretty pumped up about two-time All-Star Luol Deng coming to Cleveland on Tuesday night. After news of the trade broke earlier that morning, the Cavs capitalized on a palpable buzz inside the arena by dominating the Philadelphia 76ers from start to finish. The only moments of suspense […]


Late Monday night the Cavaliers made the most significant improvement to the team that has not come from the draft since the rebuild started in 2010. LUOL DENG DRIVES ON FORMER CAVALIER ANTHONY PARKER. (Chronicle-Telegram) Chris Grant has done it again by making a trade that seems almost impossible, too good to be true.   […]
