Shaqenfreude, Part 2: The 1st “Shaq Vs.”

Before we begin, a link: fantasy uberguru Eric Wong of rotoevil.com and 82games.com has asked me to direct your inquiring eyes to his Cavaliers fantasy preview, and I saw no reason not to oblige him. It’s for fantasy, so take it with that particular brand of salt, but Eric has no rooting interest, and when he’s wrong about stuff, he loses money. And Eric’s made a lot more than he’s…

The Kurz of Cleveland and Other Stuff Too

Before we go any further: you should really read this excellent post by Eddy Rivera of Third Quarter Collapse. It’s on whether or not the Magic should retire Shaq’s jersey, and it’s an interesting look at what Shaq can bring to a basketball franchise in both the short and long term. The comments and poll results are worth a look as well. The big news of the weekend over in…

Why Don’t We Just Stay In and Make Power Rankings: Commercials!

By the way: don’t forget to check out the link roundup I made Thursday, mainly because I actually made a link roundup. Boys and occasional girl who clicks on the wrong link, I’m going to level with you. It’s a long off-season. And during the off-season, a lot of times things don’t happen. And when nothing’s happening, it’s high time to start arbitrarily ranking things for no particular reason. So…

Profiles In Things That Contain More Things: August 13, 2009

First off: Baah. Life got in the way of posting last night, but I’ll have the aforementioned new feature up by tonight barring unforseen complications. Although I don’t want your hopes to be up at this point-it’s a trifling and inconseqential new feature. In the meantime, here are a few links: The Onion AV Club’s Scott Tobias’ review of “More Than a Game,” via Twitter: “More Than A Game (’09,…

So very close…

Leon Powe’s deal is now official, and all there is left to do is sit and wait for him to pass his physical. Of course, Powe’s physical is a bit more dicey than the average physical, so there’s still a little bit of breath to be held. I”m not really sure what they’re testing for-I guess if it looks like he’ll be able to jerk his knee in four months,…

Here Comes Leon Powe

Via Windhorst, it appears that the Cavaliers are about to sign a two-year deal with Leon Powe. I wrote something about the possibility of Powe when the rumors about him first started up, but I’ll try to expand upon those thoughts now. First off, read this excellent send-off to Powe by Zach Lowe over at Celtics Hub. After you’re done with that here, in no particular order, are my thoughts…

LeBron Shocks World, Betrays Cleveland With Predictable, Rational Decision

First things first: According to my beloved and most likely inflated SiteMeter, the site has now welcomed 200,00 readers since its inception. To each and every one of you who has made Cavs: The Blog a part of your day or just stumbled here randomly when one of the stories got picked up by a different, better, site, thank you so, so much. Hopefully you’ll keep reading, and hopefully I’ll…

Of Performance-Enhancing Drugs and Performance-Explaining Statements

(Link to comic) On Rashard Lewis, the “big” news of the day: This will be covered from a variety of angles, so I’ll just go through a few points: -People need to open their minds up about what performance-enhancing drugs can do. Speed is a function of muscle. Recovery time. Endurance. Lateral movement. And raw strength is a lot more important in basketball than people realize-even among the little guards,…

Profiles In Profiling: Daniel Gibson

I came up with the idea for that shirt a couple of weeks before I got asked to start this blog up, and was pretty much as proud of it as anything I’ve done in my life. I was expecting the Boobie shirt to become a running joke on the site, one of the little mini-traditions that made Cavs: The Blog a fun place to come to. Every time Gibson…

Ones Who Got Away: Matt Barnes/Jamario Moon Edition

It’s likely that this blog has, since its inception, grown to the point where it has literally multiple readers on a daily basis. However, only one of those readers has consistently commented on multiple articles, making one simple demand without regard for the context. And if the internet isn’t for empowering vocal minorities, then what is it there for? So to show my appreciation and the fact that it is…

Profiles In Things That Contain More Things

Fairly slow news day, so here’s a random amalgamation of things happening around the internet with small doses of snark attached for your reading pleasure: -This isn’t an MMA blog, but it is a free blog, so I’m going to talk about Fedor Emelianenko, the consensus #1 heavyweight in the world and many’s pick for the #1 overall fighter and even GOAT of MMA. He signed with low-rent US promotion…
