Cavs: The Podcast 0034 – DRAFT FRENZY! Part 1

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Oh boy, CG did it again.

As has happened for the past two drafts, Grant managed to throw literally everyone off the scent, picking the one player most pundits hadn’t connected to the Cavaliers.

Colin, Tom, Nate and I hopped on the ole’ podcast line and talked this thing out.  We discussed (obviously) Bennett, Karasev, the second round, whether or not Chris Grant has completely turned teams off from trading with him, and the direction of this Cavaliers team.

Cavs: The Podcast 0033 – The Finals

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Whoa now!  We’re closing in on the big day!  The draft is officially less than two weeks away.

So Nate, Tom, Colin and I hopped on the podcast line and discussed…what else…the finals!  And the offseason, of course.  We touched on topics such as Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, the Heat’s supporting cast, potential offseason trades, the Celtics, Clippers, the Cavs (clearly), the draft, and the coaching carousel.

Cavs: The Podcast 0032 – Nick Gilbert Is A Lucky Man

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

WOOOOOO!  Have you all stopped celebrating yet?  Because I haven’t!  Amazingly enough, as you all know, the Cleveland Cavaliers have again landed the #1 pick (2/3 years!) in the NBA draft.

No one really expected the Cavaliers to end up picking first, so with the announcement came a slew of new questions.  Essentially…What next?!

Robert, Colin, Nate and I hopped on the line to discuss what having the #1 pick means for this Cavs team.  Is Noel going first?  Is a major trade coming?  Who should be taken with the 19th pick?   Who do the Cavs sign this off-season?  Are they in win-now mode?

These questions, and many more (most awkward moment of the lottery?) are answered.

Cavs: The Podcast 0031 – 2013 Playoffs, Or The Last One Without The Cavs For A While (hopefully)

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

After a massive delay due to computer issues, I present you all with our 2013 Playoff discussion.  Unfortunately it’s all moot at this point – all the teams have passed the 2nd round.  Still, Robert, Colin and I touch on some pretty great topcs about the four second round match ups.  It’s definitely worth a listen!

Cavs: The Podcast 0029 – 2013 Mega Recap Extravaganza

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Annnnnd SCENE!  Just like that, the 2013 season is in the books.  We know the trials and tribulations ahead – but what about this roster?  How did it perform this year?  Who’s coming back next year?  Why was Boobie Gibson such a G-D mess?

Well, folks, we’ve gotcha covered.  On today’s second-annual end-of-year podcast, Colin, Nate, and I answer all of the above questions as we go through the roster player by player, break down their 2013 season, and predict what their situation will be next year.

Cavs: The Podcast 0028 – BS!

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Another bad Cavs loss means the same ol’ question – is Byron the man for the job?  After the Cavs again blew a winnable game to the lowly Detroit Pistons, the question rings louder than ever.  So what better way to answer than a podcast?

In today’s podcast Tom and I discuss Byron’s future, his impact on the team (specifically Kyrie, Tristan, and Dion), what his pluses and minuses are, and his general handle of the NBA game at the coaching level.

0027 – Aaron Craft gets Benched

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

It’s Bench Week here on C:tB.  And what would any in-depth discussion be without Tom, Nate, and me discussing Aaron Cra…err…putting in our two cents vocally.

Nate was kind enough to lend his voice to the marathon ‘cast, so he’ll be posting his article later this week.

On today’s podcast, we discuss the individual players that make up the Cleveland Cavalier’s bench.  We touch on Shaun Livingston, Marreese Speights, Luke Walton, CJ Miles, Tyler Zeller, and Wayne “Duke” Ellington.

And of course, there’s Aaron Craft…

Cavs: The Podcast 0024 – Cavs: 92, T-Wolves: 100

Monday, February 11th, 2013

What an awful loss.  It’s never easy watching your favorite team lose to an equally awful one.  Even more, when you’re at home and coming off a pretty good last ten.

Tom and I had a lot to say about this lost, so we decided to pop on the line for a mega-podcast!  In it we discuss the recent loss to the T-Wolves, the development of Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, and our bench, and answer some of your questions.

Cavs: The Podcast 0023 – Raab 3

Monday, February 4th, 2013

We’re (SLIGHTLY OVER) half way through the season, which means it was only a matter of time until I emailed a CtB favorite, Scott Raab, and asked him to come on.

On today’s podcast Scott and I discuss Tristan Thompson’s breakout season, Dion Waiters’ progress, Kyrie Irving’s game, whether or not Byron Scott will be around next year, The Cavs in general, and recent moves for the Browns and Indians.

Cavs: The Podcast 0022 – No, not THAT Joe Johnson

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Joe isn’t tall.  He isn’t fast.  And I doubt he can hit an open three.  No, this Joe Johnson doesn’t play for the Brooklyn (New Jersey) Nets – he’s located all the way out in Indonesia.

Given the recent (somewhat) success of this Cavs team and the fact that we all know the NBA game inside and out, I thought it’d be fun to have a change of pace.  I enlisted a close friend, Mr. Joe Johnson, to come on and talk about the Asean Basketball League.

In this episode of the podcast Joe and I talk about how the Asean Basketball League is run, the types of people who attend the games, differences between the ASL and the NBA, differences between the ASL game and the NBA game, how the teams are put together, and Joe’s general thoughts on the NBA season thus far.
