Well, it’s a complicated case you know… about what happens next for the Cavs. A lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you’s for LeBron James, Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman to ponder. Frankly, there’s just a lotta strands to keep in our heads, man… lotta strands like the draft… free agency… and the future of the team. Probably too many strands for the old Duder to keep straight… but maybe not…


Putting Things In Perspective


This past Thursday evening, my wife and I had the privilege of hearing the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar speak at the State Theatre as part of Cleveland State University’s 2018 AHA! Festival. Abdul-Jabbar was there in part to promote his new book, Becoming Kareem, and was an engaging speaker who commanded the room on a highly enjoyable night. During his hour on stage, Abdul-Jabbar spoke on a variety of topics. He…


George Hill Is A True Difference-Maker


To say things are looking up for the Cleveland Cavaliers would be a major understatement. Just over a week after barely surviving a first-round series against the Indiana Pacers in seven games, the Cleveland Cavaliers looked absolutely dominant as they finished off a four-game sweep of the Toronto Raptors. They dominated the number one seed in the Eastern conference in a way that even the biggest Cavs optimist didn’t expect….


Playoff Recap: Pacers 121, Cavs 87 (Or, The Beginning Of The End?)


It was Deja Vu all over again. LeBron James came to Bankers Life Fieldhouse hoping to eliminate the Indiana Pacers from the postseason for the fifth time in seven seasons. While the Cavaliers had won an NBA-record 13 straight playoff series-clinching games, this Cavaliers team was far different from the ones we’ve seen the last few seasons. There is no “Big Three,” and with Kevin Love struggling on offense throughout…


Playoff Live Thread: Cavs @ Pacers, Game 3


Well, we didn’t expect to be here, did we? The Cavaliers head to Indiana to face a Pacers squad that had shocked many by splitting the first two games of this playoff series. Now, as the series moves to Bankers Life Fieldhouse, a place where the Cavaliers have seemingly always struggled, the question is whether or not LeBron James‘s supporting class can step up and give The King some help….


End Of Regular Season Progress Reports


As the regular season comes to an end, now seems like a good time for some Cleveland Cavaliers Progress Reports. It’s been a roller coaster of a regular season with injuries, locker room drama, and a major trade that completely reshaped the roster. Now, as the playoffs begin, Cavs: The Blog will take a look at each member of the roster and assign them a letter grade that stands for…


Recap: Cavs 107, Pelicans 102 (or, The Best Player On The Planet Proves It Again)


The New Orleans Pelicans came to town last night to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that featured two of the true superstars in the NBA. LeBron James and Anthony Davis will likely finish second and third in this year’s MVP voting, in some order. Both men have carried their teams through injury-plagued seasons to remain in the thick of the playoff hunt, but only one of them…


Live Thread: Pelicans @ Cavs


After a 2-1 road trip that saw the Cavaliers’ injury problems continue, the Wine & Gold return home to Quicken Loans Arena tonight to take on the New Orleans Pelicans in a matchup that features two of the biggest stars in the NBA. While James Harden will almost definitely win the NBA MVP Award this season, the Pelican’s Anthony Davis and the Cavaliers’ own LeBron James are like to finish…


What Do We Know About The Cleveland Cavaliers?


Today, the Cleveland Cavaliers sit in a place where even the most pessimistic Cavs fan (or optimistic fan of another team) would never have put them, sitting in just barely the third seed of the Eastern Conference with only 16 games left to play. The only thing that has been consistent with this team is the chaos. Whether it was the slow start to the season, winning 18 of 19…


Recap: Cavs 112, Grizzlies 89 (Or, Off And Running!)


One night after a loss at home against the Washington Wizards in which they seemingly couldn’t buy an outside shot in the second half, the Cleveland Cavaliers traveled to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies came into the game on a seven-game losing streak, and were 0-for-February. The Cavs had shown much improved energy since revamping their roster at the trade deadline, but a brand new rotation, combined…


Live Thread: Cavs @ Grizzlies


After last night’s loss to the Wizards at home, the honeymoon may be over for the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers, but the bloom is hardly off the rose. Sure, the defense still needs some fixing, someone besides LeBron James needs to attack the basket, and those open threes need to fall, but it’s still a marked improvement over where the team had been prior to the trades. It’s one thing to…


A Pivotal Moment


I’ve been a fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers for as long as I can remember. While the Indians were easily the dominant team of my childhood (my family made a lot of trips to Old Municipal, which was about four miles from my house), I have a lot of fond memories of the Cavalier teams of Price, Nance, Daugherty, and Williams. These were great teams that had the misfortune of…
