Summer League Live Thread: Cavs Vs Kings

2018-07-11

The biggest tournament of the summer for people that don’t like kicking balls starts today in Las Vegas. That’s right, it’s the NBA Summer League tournament. Afrer playing three games to be seeded, the Cavaliers earned the eighth seed with a 2-1 record. They’re up against the Kings, who snagged the 24th seed. Cleveland’s team has played fairly well and has a chance to win the whole thing if Cedi…

2018-07-07

Wakanda Forever, Cavs Fans! The wine and gold take on the Bulls at 9:30 EST, Saturday on ESPN2. It should be a fun one, as the Bulls have some intriguing players including rumored Cavs target, Duke’s Wendell Carter Jr., the No. 22 pick of 2018, Boise State’s Chandler Hutchison, and undrafted free agent, Maryland’s Melo Tremble. The Bulls have eight undrafted free agents, four from 2018, three from 2017, and…

Welcome to Vegas, peeps! The summer Cavs (some some aren’t) debut tonight.

Live Thread: NBA Free Agency Midnight Madness 2018

Featured Video Play Icon
2018-06-30

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…

Finals Live Thread Game 4: Cavs vs Warriors (Evolve or Die)

2018-06-08

The Cavs already rendered the Raptors extinct, and if they don’t evolve, this incarnation of the Cavs will go the way of the dinosaurs as well. It’s true. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit, in the NBA playoffs, let alone the finals, but that’s no reason not to try. We all thought this series was going seven games anyway. Why even play the game if it’s…

Finals Live Thread, Game 3: Cavs vs Warriors (home cookin’)

2018-06-06

Welcome home, Cavs. I was tempted to lead with a picture of Andre Igoudala tonight, but I decided that a vision of what the Cavs are playing for ought to go up top. Make no mistake. This one’s for Cleveland. The Cavs are on the precipice of being down an impossible 0-3, and all we’ve heard about for the last few days is how inadequate this team, this region, and…

Finals Live Thread: Cavs @ Warriors, Game 2

2018-06-03

The Cavs are back in Oracle Arena after a very controversial game one loss. That game will down in history and may even be what people remember about the 2018 Finals, regardless of who the victor is. For many Cavs fans, it will be the game that LeBron James took a charge, that was called on the floor, from Kevin Durant while standing a very reasonable distant from the cylinder….

2018 Finals Live Thread: Cavs @ Warriors, Game 1

2018-05-31

The Cavs arrived at Oracle Arena with the black duds intact, though with a few… alterations. LeBron donned the suit shorts, as did Jordan Clarkson, while most of the guys went long on the pants. On other great news, Kevin Love has passed the concussion protocol, which means he’ll be playing tonight. And if Ty Lue’s words from earlier this week are any indication, it means he’ll be starting. My…

Playoff Live Thread: Cavs @ Celtics, Game 7 (#Everything’sGoneGreen)

2018-05-27

If you want a window into my thought process on a game day when I’m contemplating what to toss up for a Live Thread theme… it often correlates to some decades past musical deep cut that sticks in my brain and provides me with an odd but fitting subtitle. Even on the verge of a winner-goes-to-the-Finals Game 7 on the road in the most hostile of territories, this is still…

Playoff Live Thread, ECF Game 6: Cavs vs. Celtics

2018-05-25

The Cavs face their second elimination game of the year as they host the Celtics for Game 6. This Celtics team has been a damn site worse on the road, so the Cavs have the odds to extend the series. In addition, given the war of attrition out west, LeBron has to see that he has an opportunity to win a championship this year, which should re-energize him from his…

Playoff Live Thread: Cavs @ Celtics, Game 5 (#BestofThree)

2018-05-23

I was tempted to make George Hill the poster child of this Live Thread… mainly because his number is “3” and because when he plays well, he brings out the best in the Cavs. However, since Mike covered G Hill’s effect on the Cavs in depth last week, I settled on a shot of the other crucially important matchup in this deadlocked Conference Finals. Kyle Korver is 16 years older…
