Well, it’s a complicated case you know… about what happens next for the Cavs. A lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you’s for LeBron James, Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman to ponder. Frankly, there’s just a lotta strands to keep in our heads, man… lotta strands like the draft… free agency… and the future of the team. Probably too many strands for the old Duder to keep straight… but maybe not…

After two disheartening losses to the Warriors, I’m almost left speechless. That didn’t stop me from hopping into the podcast booth with Nate Smith though to try and make sense of what’s happening right now. The Warriors picked up another win tonight. Kevin Durant grabbed a super efficient 26 points on 10-14 shooting while Stephen Curry hit a Finals record nine 3s to put up 33. Throughout the night, the…

The Cavs proved once again to be no match on the road as they fell behind early at the TD Garden by 13 in the first quarter, and wound up losing by precisely that margin in the end. Though they made runs in the final three quarters, they never really got the deficit under 10 that often, and trailed by as much as 20 early in the fourth quarter. The…

Tom Pestak rage quit on this game in the third quarter. He probably made the right decision. The Cavs, after leading 51-40 with 1:40 to go in the second, were outscored 51-29 before the 7:38 mark of the fourth to put the Celtics up 11. Cleveland cut it to six with 4:42 to play, and after a terrible foul call against LeBron, Ty Lue made his most inexplicable decision in…

Contrary to what was posited in the Saturday Night Live sketch that was cut for time last weekend, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard is in fact not a Roomba. However, such a point guard would have been handy in sweeping up the smoldering ashes of the Toronto Raptors following Monday night’s Game 4 extinction level event. As expected, the Cavs completed their impressive clean sweep of the top seeded dinos,…

After an exhausting, maddening, thrilling, nail-biting series, the Cleveland Cavaliers emerged victorious over the Indiana Pacers in a series that saw Indy outscore the Cavs by 40 points over seven games (courtesy of two blowouts). LeBron James proved that he is simply the best basketball player on this planet scoring 45 points on 72 TS% while adding nine rebounds, and four steals. The wine and gold got a very unexpected…

LeBron James went all Top Gun on the Pacers in Game 2, scoring 20 points in the first quarter and 46 for the game to lead the Cavs to a victory that wound up a little closer than it should have. In the end, Cleveland evened things up with the feisty Indy squad and their “Iceman” Victor Oladipo. The Cavs supporting cast didn’t wash out as much as they did…

Before we get to that though, we had a basketball game in Cleveland. The Cavs played the Knicks. LeBron James started, got to ten points, and given that Philly was Anhillating the Bucks and that Boston was up on…
