Live Thread: Cavs vs Timberwolves

2018-10-19

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…

It’s an Ohio sports night! With the Tribe taking on the Astros and the Buckeye battling the Hoosiers in the late afternoon, we’ll forgive you if you’re a little late tuning in to the Cavs tonight.

What’s wackier than a 1980 Disney movie about an all night college scavenger hunt? This year’s installment of the NBA’s Free Agency Midnight Deadline of course. And, as in the movie, Los Angeles seems to be the de facto epicenter of this gigantic game, with the Lakers being linked to just about every top name on the board. Now, that doesn’t mean the purple and gold will wind up with…

Live Thread: 2018 NBA Draft (#DoYouFeelIt?)

2018-06-21

I’ll admit it… my heart’s just not in this draft. Not because there aren’t a ton of terrific young prospects to choose from, even at the 8th spot where the Cavaliers find themselves… but because I’m finding it hard to enjoy it with the ever-present spectre of another LeBron James “decision” looming over it. With such a disparate group of players potentially available (from bigs to smalls to every swing…
