The Aluminum Anniversary

Well folks, it’s hard to believe, but we’re about to tip off our 10th season of Cavs: the Blog, tonight. This blog was started way back in 2008-2009 when John Krolik spun up this lowly site for the ESPN TrueHoop network. The oldest post on this site was January 7, 2009, but I believe that a form of it may have existed before we went to WordPress. Regardless, it’s our…

Podcast 183: Overs, Unders, Hoaxes and Blunders

Will the Cavs really win fewer than 31 games this year? Will the Lakers win more than 48? Will the Warriors continue their boring domination? Will the Indiana Pacers go Hoosier and shock the world? Who will win the end of season awards? And, most importantly… will Tom have to become a vigilante to stop the spread of a new fruity drug scourge from claiming victims in Southern Ohio? All…

Looking At The Final Roster Spot

Some thoughts on the Cavaliers’ open roster spot in light of  the team’s recent moves… A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Cavaliers’ various training camp invitees, what they brought to the table, and their chances of making the team. It seemed like Isaiah Taylor was the favorite for the fifteenth and final roster spot until word spread about the stress fracture he was dealing with. After that, it…

Preseason Recap: Pistons 129, Cavs 110 (or, Waxed)

Dan Gilbert once famously offered the Cavaliers coaching job to Tom Izzo. Maybe he should have tried Wax Tom Izzo instead… On second thought, nah… too creepy. After seeing multiple cut aways to Austin Carr and others posing at the strangest wax museum in sports (which exists inside the Breslin Center on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing) during the Cavs’ preseason finale against the Pistons, I’ve…

Preseason Live Thread: Cavs @ Pistons (in Lansing)

The Cavs travel to Lansing tonight. Sorry, the Cavs travel to East Lansing (which any Spartan will tell you is not Lansing), to play the Pistons in the Jack Breslin Student Events Center on the campus of Dan Gilbert’s Alma Mater, Michigan State University. The Cavs will be missing Larry Nance, who sprained his ankle and Isiah Taylor who has a stress fracture. The Pistons will start their regular season guys…

Podcast 182: Get Off My Lawn

Thanks to Kyrie Irving being unable to keep his ungrateful, recalcitrant pie hole buttoned… EG went full Pestak tonight, dragging Nate down a rabbit hole of NBA rants. The Evil one gave both barrels to the Flat Earther about his recent comments about Boston “saving” him from the living hell that apparently must have been Cleveland for him. That vitriol spilled over into other topics like Jimmy Butler’s weird hold…

Preseason Live Thread: Cavs vs. Celtics

It’s an Ohio sports night! With the Tribe taking on the Astros and the Buckeye battling the Hoosiers in the late afternoon, we’ll forgive you if you’re a little late tuning in to the Cavs tonight. Still, it looks to be an interest lineup with a bunch of dude’s out of the lineup. #Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said David Nwaba (tweaked groin) will not play tonight vs Celtics. Also sitting…

From Distance: Free To Be Me

four point play…. 1. Picking a team for pickup basketball is a science. There is that specific balance between getting to run all day and having to wait three or four games for another shot. One can’t be overly sentimental if one wants to own the court for the day. “Sorry Steve. We already have five.” Meanwhile, your fifth is actually whichever scorer that happens to lose the current game….
