The Case Against Tyronn Lue

Ladies and Gentlemen of our CtB jury, JMKP and JMay bring you the following case against our oft-maligned head coach. This dynamic duo shall lay out their case with a series of one-two punches. The charges presented shall be harsh. Yet, Lady Justice shall stand omnipresent in this proceeding — and it shall be up to you, our CtB jury, to judge accordingly.  The Cavs need to relieve Tyronn Lue…

From Distance: Buzz-kill Alert

four point play…. 1. After watching dispirited regular season game after dispirited game over the course of the 2017-2018 NBA season, it is of little surprise that Koby Altman selected a young guard with maniacal energy. The Cavs number eight pick, Collin Sexton, doesn’t take plays off, bounces around with heart, and doesn’t back down even when his team has no real shot to win. I won’t even bother linking…

NBA Draft 2018 Podcap: Adding A Young Bull

After a slight flurry of activity early in the NBA Draft Lottery, the Cavaliers wound up with the guy they claim they were most impressed with from the start… Alabama guard Collin Sexton. If you were worried about the mixed reviews on Trae Young… he was gone by the fifth pick (to Dallas… who traded him to the Hawks for Luka Doncic). If you had doubts about Michael Porter Jr.’s…

Live Thread: 2018 NBA Draft (#DoYouFeelIt?)

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…

Draft Preview: Bridging the gap at Small Forward

With the Cavs facing a potential bridge-burning exit by Lebron this summer, it could be in the Cavs best interest to start mapping out potential replacements rather than waiting to cross that bridge later.  Fortunately, this draft has several decent small forwards which could very well be available by the time the Cavs pick at #8, and each could provide a bridge over troubled waters should that dreaded Lebron-exit occur. …

Getting To Know Mo Bamba

Like my esteemed colleague, David Wood, I’m not one to watch much college basketball. What some consider to be the extra hustle of amateurs, I see as a lack of offensive skill, particularly in terms of long-range shooting. The NBA Draft also hasn’t been particularly relevant to the Cleveland Cavaliers over the last four years. However, since I love basketball, and don’t live in a cave, I had heard of…

Competitive Psychopath: A Collin Sexton Story

After the Cavs netted the Nets unprotected first round pick in the Kyrie trade, I slowly began wading in the 2018 draft prospect waters. The undertow of finding a longterm replacement for Uncle Drew organically pulled me towards the point guard prospects, and that’s when my curiosity with Collin Sexton began. Sexton’s high school highlights blew me away. He attacked the defense as if it he was a bail bondsman…

Zhaire Smith: Zhaire Who?

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t watch college basketball. Over the past couple of years, there has been no need to. The Cavs haven’t had a meaningful draft pick since they traded away Andrew Wiggins in 2014. Fortunately, the world loves me and my first draft feature is on Zhaire Smith. I don’t live under a rock, I know some of the big names like Mo Bamba, Colin…

Who Are Marvin Bagley III And Michael Porter Jr? I’ll Tell You

For the first time in four years the Cleveland Cavaliers have a significant interest in this year’s draft. With the 8th pick, the Cavs have an opportunity to add young talent in a possibly historically talented draft. Unfortunately, they were not able to harness the draft gods to leap into the top 5 where at least one of the below players will be drafted. Just in case miracles happen, I’ll…

From Distance: Cavs: the Vlog

four point play…. 1. After giving writing the ole college try, I resorted to the one man booth. It went, er, well, it went. Hey YouTube, why won’t you let me select a better thumbnail than that when I’m editing on my phone? And why won’t you let me edit out that part where I literally say, “this isn’t good”. Man. My first crack at a video “From Distance” could be my…

LeOptions: The LeBron James 2018 Free Agency Explainer

Editor’s Note: Please welcome long time commenter, Excl, who is offering his first post on LeBron’s options (from a mostly fit and team construction standpoint) in free agency. Well, the off-season we’ve all dreaded is upon us, and the Lebron Free Agency feeding frenzy is in full-effect. Rather than rant and scream about how we know what is going to happen, let’s dive into the numbers and facts and see what…
