Cavs: The Blog was founded by John Krolik in 2008 during the excitement and anxiety of the LeBron 1.0 era (or, the post Jiri Welsch era if you’re a masochist). Tom Pestak joined as the “Links to the Present” aggregator in 2010. Colin McGowan took over the editing duties after The Decision, and CtB has been evolving ever since. We’ve covered the dark years, argued over the minutiae of Byron Scott’s rotations, survived the #SeasonOfHuh, and find ourselves documenting the LeBron 2.0 era. The Cavs have undergone dramatic changes, and we’ve changed as well.
Cavs: The Blog is currently owned and operated by Tom Pestak, Nate Smith, and EvilGenius. We’ve got a talented and eclectic group of writers spanning the globe. Here you’ll find the most in-depth Cavs analysis in our audacious game recaps. We boast an insightful, clever, and civil commentariat – the best you’ll ever come across. Add your thoughts in real time via our Live Threads.
