Tonight’s Starting Lineup For Your Cleveland Cavaliers….


Well, here we are in the dog days of summer as we wait for the return of NBA basketball. Most of us have been taking a needed reprieve from the often exhausting journey that was the LeBron 2.0 era. In a lot of ways, it feels like I needed this break as much as the players did. I’ve been recharging my fandom and my meter is almost back to full….


The Curious Case Of Rodney Hood


On February 8th, 2018 in the final hours before the 2017-18 NBA Trade Deadline, the Cavaliers front office, namely rookie GM Koby Altman, took part in a series of trades that rocked the Cavaliers’ universe in what was initially a fresh and exciting fashion. In a combination of three separate trades, Altman rid Cleveland of Dwyane Wade, Isaiah Thomas, Derrick Rose, Jae Crowder, and unfortunately, Channing Frye. In return the…


Breaking: Guess Who’s Back For The French Toast!


Channing Frye and the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed on a 1-year, $2.4M according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. Channing Frye is a 13 year vet who returns to the Cavaliers after being traded mid-season to the Lakers in a deal that netted the Cavs Larry Nance, Jr. and Jordan Clarkson. Frye was also a member of the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers and boy does it feel good to get…


The Case Against Tyronn Lue


Ladies and Gentlemen of our CtB jury, JMKP and JMay bring you the following case against our oft-maligned head coach. This dynamic duo shall lay out their case with a series of one-two punches. The charges presented shall be harsh. Yet, Lady Justice shall stand omnipresent in this proceeding — and it shall be up to you, our CtB jury, to judge accordingly.  The Cavs need to relieve Tyronn Lue…


Who Are Marvin Bagley III And Michael Porter Jr? I’ll Tell You


For the first time in four years the Cleveland Cavaliers have a significant interest in this year’s draft. With the 8th pick, the Cavs have an opportunity to add young talent in a possibly historically talented draft. Unfortunately, they were not able to harness the draft gods to leap into the top 5 where at least one of the below players will be drafted. Just in case miracles happen, I’ll…


5-on-5: 2018 NBA Finals Edition


The Cleveland Cavaliers survived the Boston Celtics in a contentious seven game series to make it to their fourth straight NBA Finals. Oh, and that would be LeBron’s eighth straight, if you’re counting. The accomplishment, especially with this roster and this set of coaches and this front office, is one of LeBron’s greatest accomplishments as an athlete. The Herculean effort it took for him to will this team to the…


ECF Not A Recap: Boston 108, Cleveland 83 (Or, The Mother’s Day Massacre)


Well, that was disappointing. I never thought I’d have to do a “Not A Recap” for a playoff game, but here we are. I just couldn’t justify putting more effort into a recap than the Cavs did into this game, taking more time away from my own Mother. On Sunday afternoon the Cleveland Cavaliers reverted back to the state they were in when the playoffs began. Unfortunately, instead of a…


An Evening with The Swoosh: Nike Celebrates LBJ’s “25 Straight” with 25 Fans.


On Friday afternoon Cavs the Blog was presented with the opportunity to shadow a fan experience put on by Nike for the upcoming release of the new LeBron Soldier I “25 Straight” edition. Yours truly was the lucky writer who got the opportunity to attend and experience the event with 25 lucky fans. And let me tell you, it was truly an experience. Nike spared no expense in making this…


Playoff Live Thread: Cavs vs Pacers, Game 6


Well, it hasn’t been the easiest five games of LeBron’s playoff career, but tonight he has a chance to close out the Pacers in 6 games and take some much needed R and R. I say “he” rather than “they” because to this point, the King has largely ruled entirely on his own, bending the Pacers to his will and their knees and receiving little to no help along the…


Recap: Cavs 123, Knicks 109 (Or, Of Course)


Not a lot happened in this game that was unexpected. The Cavs managed to beat the New York Knicks 123 to 109. They accomplished this feet by trying, well, only sometimes. Of course this would be the outcome and everyone in the arena knew it. New York is in tank mode and Cleveland doesn’t much care about their seeding going into the playoffs. Fortunately, the Cavs did manage to get…


Recap: Miami 98, Cleveland 79 (Or, Why Bother?)


Well, the Cavaliers decidedly cannot win in Miami. No matter how good the Cavs are playing going in, the Heat arena seems to be a curse for the team. This game was no exception as the Heat managed to completely avoid the absolute tear that LeBron James has been on throughout the month of March. Miami won 98 to 79 and after averaging just about a 30 point triple double…
