Live Thread: Cavs @ Bulls


Tonight’s Saturday night match-up is a real doozy. The 1-10 Cavaliers face off against fellow cellar dwellers, the 3-9 Chicago Bulls. Neither one of these teams is good to begin with and both feature some significant injuries. For the Cavs, they are still without All-Star power forward Kevin Love, George Hill, Cedi Osman, and Sam Dekker. They had to sign the former Grizzley Andrew Harrison just to have some more…


Recap: Pacers 119, Cavs 107 (Or, Lue the Pumpkin Smasher)


Remember those days when you were young when you started to see pumpkins in front of doors and houses as your neighbors prepared for their Halloween festivities? Remember the one kid who always thought it was a good idea to go around and smash a few of those pumpkins? We all know that smashing pumpkins is a bad idea. It’s mean and it ruins children’s days and wastes the hard…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Pacers (Home Again?)


Well, the Cleveland Cavaliers are 0-5 to start the season. While no one likes a loss, the losses at home against Atlanta and Brooklyn were particularly upsetting. It’s frustrating when your team doesn’t show up for the home crowd. I don’t predict tonight will look any better. The preseason showed us that this Pacers team is like the big brother version of what the Cavs want to be. They do…


Live Thread: Cavs vs Timberwolves


The Cavaliers travel to Kevin Love’s old stomping grounds tonight to face the disgruntled Jimmy Butler and his pack of timid youths. After a rough first game for Love, I’m sure he will want to bounce back and have a big game against his former team. The Wolves, meanwhile, lost their first game to the Spurs in a tight 112-108 contest. The Cavs face a tough first two opponents in…

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…
