Saying Goodbye

2018-11-23

I’ll never forget the night the Cleveland Cavaliers traded for JR Smith.

Live Thread: Cavs @ Hornets

2018-11-03

One thing you have to give the Cleveland Cavaliers, it’s never boring with them.

Who Matters?

2018-11-01

Looking At The Final Roster Spot

2018-10-15

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…

Getting To Know Sam Dekker

2018-08-07

As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue rebuilding their roster to begin the second post-LeBron James era, a few points emphasis within their plan have become apparent. First off, they aren’t interested in a complete tear down ala’ the 2010-2011 Cavaliers. They believe that fielding a competitive team is better for the development of the young core players on the roster, as it makes it more difficult for a losing mentality to…

Finding Fits

2018-07-23

Whether they try to contend for a playoff spot or tear down their team in a complete rebuild, the Cleveland Cavaliers are in a state of transition. When the best player in the game leaves your team, that’s bound to happen, and that’s exactly what happened to the Cavaliers with LeBron James now a Los Angeles Laker.
