Live From New York, It’s All Star Saturday!

2018-02-17

  Ladies and Gents…I’m BACK!   As I’m sitting here, watching this Kobe/Shaq joke of an interview (SNOOOOOZE) I can’t help but get a bit psyched – for the first time in a while, we have some new, exciting rooting interest.  And for the first time in the Lebron era, we’ve got a dunk contestant! I’ve got some juicy IPAs (shout out to Other Half Brewing, Singlecut, and a slew…

Live Thread: Hawks @ Cavs, Game Three

We can almost taste it.  That is, everyone except for Tom (love ya, buddy). In our email chains since game one, I will openly admit that pretty much everyone involved in C:TB has spent far, FAR more time talking about the Warriors than the Hawks.  Actually, I’m not sure I can remember a single instance of any of the bloggers discussing the Hawks for any extended period of time. But,…

Mallory’s Cavalier Expedition

Mallory was lucky enough to snag four (count ’em, FOUR!) tickets to a home Cavaliers game on Monday.  The following are some notes, anecdotes, and observations. First, I’d like to thank a certain, unnamed source in the Cavalier business office who kindly hooked me up with four tickets (surprisingly, though, not through my blog connections!)

Cavs: the Podcast 0056 – EMOTIONS!!!

OH…EM..GEE!  Seriously…OH MY EFFING GEE (Alonzo?). But seriously, the day has arrived.  After years of speculation, months of discussion, and 15 weeks of pure excitement (not to mention a zillion emails with John, Kevin, Colin, Tom, Nate, Dani, David, Ben, and anyone else I’m forgetting…sorry), the season kick-off has finally arrived.  Tonight, and really today, all eyes will be on Cleveland…Include JT’s, apparently. All of this, of course, can make…

Atlantic Division Preview

  The Atlantic Division – the teams here are filled with greatness, with history, with winning…except in 2014. What was once a division held to the highest of standards – Larry Legend! Dr. J! Walt! Vince Carter! (haaaa) – is now replete with mid-level mediocrity. To make matters worse, unlike their Eastern brethren to the south and west, the majority of Atlantic teams won’t see substantial improvements in the upcoming…

For the Love Of…!

It’s impossible to say something that hasn’t already been said about the this off-season.  We’re all aware of the impact on the league and the region, and we’re also aware of the potential consequences that come with trading Wiggins and Bennett.  I’m not here to put the last three months into an NBA context because I wont be able to contribute anything fresh (and, lets be honest, no one really…

Cavs: the Podcast 0052 – King Me!

#$$%@&@!(#(&(*^&$(&^!!!!!! Really, I can’t get over it.  I still tear up when I think about the letter;  I get chills when I consider what’s happened; my heart starts racing and my stomach lurches when I imagine next season.  Is this a reality?  Can someone pinch me?!?!  Please, don’t let me wake up from this dream! LeBron is back, and in the most beautiful way possible.  All, for the time being, is…
