Recap: Cavs 117, Knicks 88 (Or, I Can Get Used To This)

The Cavs collected their rings and hoisted their championship banner with poise. They didn’t let their excitement change anything they did. They defended hard holding the Knicks to just 36.8% from the field. They made sure they moved the ball getting 31 assists. And, even though it was a 29 point win, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving made it entertaining by generating at least twenty vines. The King kept whipping…


Live Thread: Knicks @ Cavs

It’s opening night, and the Knicks are visiting the Q. The Cavs, only team in the history of the NBA Finals to come back from a 3-1 deficit, are getting their championship rings before the game starts. And, unlike a year ago, the Cavs, also the only team that has beat the Warriors two times in a row in the past year, are starting healthy. Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will…

#CavsRank Moments 2: The Block

Tied at 89, with one minute and 51 seconds left in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, LeBron James made the greatest defensive play in the history of the NBA.  The game had been tied for almost three minutes, since a Klay Thompson Layup at 4:39. Andre Iguodala had laid a pretty good block against James at three minutes. In the ensuing 1:09, Iguodala missed a three, Kevin Love bricked…


Season Preview: Eastern Conference

Thursday, we checked out the Western Conference.  Today, we spill ink on the Eastern conference: a selection of devoted basketball zealots, ready to spill blood (or at least lay down some rough fouls) for their teams. Will any of these gangs be able to muscle in on the Cavs’ territory? And will anyone in this conference be able to stand up to the baddest of the bad out west? [Editor’s Note:…

However, since that recognition will be a celebration of the season past, it’s time…


The Point Four-ward: Dollar Dollar Bills, Y’all

Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) On Friday, the Cavs and J.R. Smith agreed on a new four-year, $57 million contract, ending another preseason stand-off between the team’s front office and Smith’s agency, Klutch Sports. In the end, both sides can claim they got what they were after, as Smith will receive a reported $45 million in guaranteed money — quite a bump up from the $5 million…
