Multimedia Madness: Hear My Voice

Lot of stuff happening on CTB today and we welcome all of you-in case interested, I appeared on ESPN’s NBA Today podcast this morning talking LeBron stuff. You get to hear my voice and hear me say about 10,000 words in the first thirty seconds, and I think I acquitted myself decently. Go boldly forth and take solace in the sonorous voice of your leader.

Recap: 23 Straight At Home. LeBron wears 23. Something Witty.

Overview: Short-handed again with Sasha Pavlovic out with the flu, the Cavs were nevertheless able to get out to a commanding early lead against the Raptors, only to let them back in the game in the second half and eventually put the team away. LeBron went for 33 and got 9 threes from the combination of Wally, Mo, and Boobie. Cavs-Related Bullets: Okay, who else got caught thinking 62 when…

Off-Day Seminar Of Some Importance: In Which We Redouble Our Efforts, Manifesto-Wise

When I started this site way back in early 2009, I had an unwritten rule that LeBron’s 2010 destination was not going to be a topic of discussion on this site. At all. It’s just an overplayed story, and besides it’s not the favorite subject of Cavs fans. And there’s way too many important things that are going to happen with this team in the next two years to waste…

The Era Of Trey Johnson Is Set To Begin In Cleveland

The Cavs have made a move, but not the Wally Z’s expiring blockbuster many Cavs fans are hoping for. With Jawad Williams’ second 10-day contract up, the Cavs have passed on giving him a full-year contract and instead signed swingman Trey Johnson. (Hat-Tip to Windhorst at the CPD.) This move was made to shore up the bench with old CTB favorite Delonte West still out until around the All-Star break…

Recap: Go Watch The Super Bowl

Overview: In a game that absolutely nobody is paying attention to, the Cavs dealt with a Pistons team that hung tough for three quarters but were ultimately done away with by a 15-2 LeBron-less run to begin the fourth quarter and some nice plays to close out the game by LeBron, Zydrunas, and Mo. The Pistons enjoy their first four-game home losing streak in eight years.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Full disclosure:…

Recap: Home Blowouts Are More Fun When You Win Them

    Overview:     In a bizarro mirror of their game last night against the Magic, the Cavs survived an early barrage of threes from the Clippers to take control in the second half, with 20 points each from LeBron, Mo Williams, and a back-from-injury Zydrunas Ilgauskas. The Cavs’s home winning streak now stands at 22.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Full disclosure: because I live in Los Angeles, tonight’s game was…

Recap: Bleeeeech.

Overview: On the road against a tough Magic team and still without Z, the Cavaliers were able to establish a rythym early, but at about the midway point of the second quarter lost their momentum and never really grabbed hold of the reigns after that. After they put up monstrous lines against the Kings, the league’s 3rd best defense was able to hold LBJ and Mo to a combined 14-42…

Recap: Mo Williams!

MoTown! Mo Domination! Mo Better Blues! I want some Mo! Eat at Mo’s! Just say Mo! Overview: Taking advantage of a ridiculously porous Sacramento Kings defense, LeBron James’ triple-double wasn’t even close to being the line of the night as Mo Williams posted an unworldly 43/8/11 to lead the Cavs to a win in a shootout against a surprisingly feisty Kings team that hung around into the fourth quarter.  Cavs-Related…

Recap: Of Heat-Checks and Hip-Checks

Overview: In a chippy game that came down to the wire, the Cavs used a 33/14/9 night from LeBron James and 25 from Mo Williams to outlast a game Jazz team with a 24/15 from Paul Milsap and 17 points/16 assists from Deron Williams. Cavs-Related Bullets: LeBron came out of the gate swinging and made a beautiful backdoor cut for an absolutely VISCIOUS stuff on a slow-rotation Krylo Fesenko, who looks…

Recap: Cavs get hyphy, play dumb, escape with nail-biter

Overview: Against a Warrior team spurred by the return of Monta Ellis and able to break the 100-point mark against the Cavaliers’ vaunted defense, the Cavs were able to steal a win thanks  to a buzzer-beating jumper by LeBron James, the first buzzer-beating game-winning jumper of his career. Cavs-Related Bullets: Wow. Wow. Wow. That’s as high as my heart rate’s gotten all season. The cardiac Cavs are back in full…
