Mike Brown, Shaq, and the Suns

Is it possible Mike Brown just didn’t feel like having a party the other night?  Sure, he didn’t need to do Z like that, but before we press onto the Phoenix Suns tonight at the Q, lets look at the possible Mavericks pregame thought process from Coach Brown’s perspective: 1. His team was just embarrassed […]

An Ode To Z

Predicting the Miracle at Lake Placid or Buster Douglas knocking out Iron Mike would have certainly been easier than pegging Zydrunas Ilgauskas as the guy that would eventually play more games than any other Cav in the history of the franchise.  However, he hasn’t, not yet at least.  Of course the national media is now taking off […]

Delonte, my little cousin, and LeBron on Z

There are a lot of reasons why Delonte West is cool.  Not the least of which is the fact that he took a minute to take a picture with my little cousin this past weekend during a Black Friday shopping trip to Best Buy.  Appreciate that D-West! Speaking of cool, LeBron James let it be […]

Delonte Creates Another Problem for Cavaliers

This time its a good one.  Coming into Saturday night’s game with the Mavericks, Delonte West had appeared in 8 games this season, and in those games he wasn’t really all that productive.  West had totaled 11 turnovers in 17 mpg of action, while averaging 4.2 points, 2.3 assists during those appearances. Against Dallas, Delonte didn’t turn it over at all, and was […]

Bloggers Wanted!

If you have something to say about the Cavaliers or the NBA in general, LeBron James needs you to say it here on  Okay, that’s not true about LeBron, but what is true is that we are looking to add a couple of bloggers to our staff here at StepienRules.  Experience is a plus but not necessary.  We are […]

Optimus Prime and the King

LeBron James made an on-court statement in the early goings of the Cavaliers’ win over the Mavericks last night.  That being,  just give me a few games, I’ll get the Big Fella incorporated into the attack.  Right after Shaq backed the ‘hair-patch-less’ Drew Gooden in for an easy two to start the game, Mo Williams found LeBron inside, who then found Shaquille […]

Cavaliers Beat Up On Mavericks, 111-95

The Cleveland Cavaliers dominated from the start and never looked back as they thump the streaking Dallas Mavericks, 111-95 at Quicken Loans Arena Saturday night. The Mavericks (12-5) entered the contest winning nine of their last eleven ball games and have beat the defending champion L.A. Lakers at Los Angeles earlier in the year. But […]

Mark Cuban: Dan Gilbert is cooler than you

The Cavaliers lost to the Bobcats 94-87 last night and the game was awful for an assortment of reasons.   I hope they learn from it tonight when they tip off against the Mavericks at the Q.  But I also hope the Cavaliers aren’t the only people in learning mode tonight.  Here’s hoping that Mark Cuban can learn a lesson in coolness, […]

Cavaliers/Mavericks Preview with Brian Cuban

The Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks square off tonight and with both teams starting off their seasons hot, it should be an entertaining matchup. And what better way to preview tonight’s matchup, than to have BRIAN CUBAN, Attorney for Mark Cuban Companies and the brother of the Mavericks owner on for a quick interview. You can […]

Cavs beat Pistons…Dan Gilbert as announcer

The Cavs beat Coach Kuester’s Pistons 98-88 in Detroit last night. LeBron had 34-8-7, Daniel Gibson threw in an extremely efficient 13, and Mo Williams had double digit points with 8 assists.  All that said, Dan Gilbert stole the show for me from the announcers’ chair. Dan Gilbert on Maverick Carter… Dan Gilbert made a number of […]

LeBron James: Week in Review

LeBron James just put together what most NBA players would call a career week.  To James, its just the latest of his (21) player of the week awards.  He was named, yesterday, the NBA’s Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday (11-16) through Sunday (11-22), a stretch in which he averaged 34-6-9.   His nightly numbers, […]

LeBron’s from O-hi-O

LeBron went for 32, 7 and 9 in the Cavaliers’ 97-91 win over the Sixers this past Ohio State – Michigan weekend, and he also helped out our boy Sloopy too.  I found this clip on YouTube and the cameraman got the footage directly off his television, but who cares, its worth it…oh and did I […]

Most Dangerous NBA Cities

I stumbled upon the headline Most Dangerous Cities 2009  earlier today, and clicked on it to see how we fared here in Cleveland.  Number 8 overall is the answer.  I wonder how we would rank in terms of danger when compared to other NBA cities, I then asked myself.  Turns out the Cavaliers call the fourth most dangerous NBA […]

Cavaliers Beat Pacers 105-95

Cleveland moves to 9-4…rounding up last night’s win over Indiana: Waiting For Next Year – Rick:  Stop me if you’ve heard this before. The Cavs offense was sharp early on, scoring 30+ in the first quarter. The defense was just as poor, allowing their opponent to stay in the game despite shooting better than 50% […]
