Links To The Present: Welcome Back To Regular Season Ball

I don’t know about any of you guys, but I could certainly relate to this guy’s tweet about the All-Star break.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were welcomed back to their regular-season games after the All-Star break Thursday, Feb. 23, and they came back with a lot to talk about in their 119-104 win against the New York Knicks.

Some could call it Kyrie’s game, racking up the leading score of 23 points, they could call it Korver’s game hitting 20 points while supporting an important movement, LeBron’s game with his dunks and insane blocks against Courtney Lee or Derrick Rose, Tristan’s game due to his nasty blocks and even his 14 rebounds or lastly, some could even call it Derrick Williams’ official welcome to the Cavs roster? We can just call it all an actual team effort.

Not A Recap: Cavs 119, Knicks 104 (or, Rolling With What They’ve Got)

Even without the Cavs making any moves at yesterday’s Trade Deadline, it was still a pretty exhausting day for many of us (so apologies for this delayed and brief quasi-recap). Fortunately, the Cavs themselves were well-rested and raring to go against the still intact Knicks last night at the Q. Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose (both the sources of trade speculation over the last few days and weeks) were still…

Live Thread: Cavs vs Knicks

Well, Cleveland stood pat today, choosing not to to ship anyone out, and instead hopefully add some insurance in the buyout market. The Knicks also chose to stand pat, but it was more like standing on 15 when the dealer has a seven showing. So after half a season of drama, Carmelo Anthony leads the the unchanged Knicks into the Q. The Cavs are, of course, missing J.R. Smith and…

Live Thread: Trade Deadline Madness

There’s already been plenty of action and rumors of blockbuster trades leading up to the NBA’s annual trade deadline… which ends at 3pm EST today. While it’s hard to imagine a move that will eclipse Sunday’s Boogie-mageddon, there are still several marquee targets (PG-13, Jimmy Butler, Andre Drummond) and a host of complementary ones (Aaron Afflalo, Taj Gibson, Jahlil Okafor, PJ Tucker) being reportedly made available. Even the Cavs are…

Point Four-ward: Boogie to the Deadline

Year after year as the trade deadline approaches, the rumors intensify and internet GMs ponder and debate potential, franchise changing moves.  This year, the trade season has yielded some early fruit with some big moves happening well before this Thursday’s deadline.  Early in January, the Cavs made a move, nabbing crucial floor spacer and rim rocker, Kyle Korver.  Then, the Nuggets and Trailblazers exchanged big men and picks.  Finally, just this…

Live Thread: 2017 NBA All Star Game (#Rivals)

LeBron James may see no rivals when he takes the court tonight for the 66th Annual NBA All Star Game (his record-tying 13th straight All Star Game start equalling the great Bob Cousy), but that doesn’t mean the other 23 players participating share that opinion. After all, there will be an equal number of Cavaliers (with James and Kyrie Irving) in the East starting lineup as there are Golden State…

Recap: All Star Saturday (or, Speaking of Flat…)

Well… that was deflating. After all of the fresh air that had been pumped into All Star Saturday Night last year, there was a sense of anticipation and excitement heading into the festivities for 2017 in New Orleans. What followed, however, was a slow and steady release of any sort of built up pressure as one lackluster event leaked into the next… sucking most of the air out of the…

Live Thread: All Star Saturday (#MardiGras)

What happens when the NBA All Star Weekend collides with the first big parade of Mardi Gras? Well, the League and TNT can only hope it’s as big of a celebration as last year’s event in Toronto, which saw the virtual rebirth of the Slam Dunk Contest. After Adam Silver announced last summer that the NBA had made a decision to move the location of this year’s game from Charlotte…

Mark and I talked about the dunk contest, the Derrick Williams addition, Love v Melo comparison, the Knicks, Lakers, and Nets simultaneously being the most embarrassing franchises in the NBA.  We also covered the pleasant surprises and disappointments around the league, and the sleeper teams in each conference.
