Podcast Episode 88: Losing Andy, Winning in OKC

Before (or after) you listen to this pod, make sure you check out David Wood’s most excellent recap of yesterday’s Cavs win in Oklahoma City. After writing, David stepped into the broadcast booth with me and Tom Pestak and we talked about the crazy week it was: most of that craziness revolving around the trade deadline. We talked about the loss of Andy and what that could mean going forward…

Stat Stats: Do the Cavs lack a Killer Instinct?

2016-02-19

Stat, from the latin statim for “immediately”, Stats, as in statistics. The impetus for the first ever “Stat Stats” post is a comment from Raoul in today’s Recap. Do you have any stats showing the Cavs have a bigger “maddening ability to take the foot off the gas and let their opponents back into games” than any other team? News flash: The other team is also trying to win! Have you…

Recap: Cavs 106, Bulls 95 (or, this is fun!!)

2016-02-19

  The Cleveland Cavaliers kicked off the second half of the NBA season last night with a nationally televised game against the Chicago Bulls. While the Bulls had been struggling before the break and are without Jimmy Butler for the next few weeks, they were also 2-0 against the Cavs this season, and many were looking for the Cavaliers to improve their focus and effort as they begin to prepare for…

Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) In a Presidential election year already full of attack ads and spin, most of it engineered to make one candidate look more appealing by making another appear less so, it’s refreshing (or not… I haven’t decided which) to see the NBA play out its version of the same thing in the week leading up the league’s annual trade deadline. This year, with…

C:tB Reader 5-on-5 (All Star Break Edition)

2016-02-16

For most of the NBA season, and really pretty much the entire calendar year, you guys get to read and sometimes hear us Cavs: the Bloggers wax, wane, pontificate and complain regarding all things Cavalier. With that in mind, it’s always fun and insightful to have some of the commentariat step into the limelight and share their thoughts and perspective on a bigger stage than the comments section can provide….

Evil Genius and I did the unthinkable.  We recorded a podcast and kept it under an hour.  We gushed about the dunk contest, we shot turnaround fadeaways from the hip on Kobe, touched on our memorable moments of All-Star weekend, and briefly discussed Kyrie Irving’s strong offensive play of late.  Finally, we touched on what the Cavs need to do in the second half to win a championship.  Commentariat, what…

All-Star Saturday Recap: Or, how many loops can this LaVine get?

2016-02-14

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLY COW.  I sincerely hope every one of you watched the Dunk Contest live.  Its reputation has taken a beating over the years.  All the dunks had been done, too many miscues, a lot of needless “creativity”, no big names…  Well, we still didn’t have any marquee players, but after this dunk contest, Aaron Gordon and Zach LaVine will forever be big names, at least as far as All-Star Weekend…
