Recap: Is This How We Make Other Teams Feel?

see more pwn and owned pictures Overview: In their worst offensive performance of the year, the Cavs were manhandled on both sides of the floor and were beaten handily by the Rockets as LeBron James was rendered ineffective. Cavs-Related Bullets: First off, sorry for the lateness. Catastrophic technical difficulties last night.  I think that was the best I’ve ever seen LeBron James defended. He’s certainly had worse games, and 21…

Off-Day Blog Chumming: Post-Deadline Moves

  To be clear: I don’t really enjoy writing about rumors, because I feel like I’m using up words on things that aren’t going to happen and fighting these great moot battles. However, I will spit out a couple graphs here just to provide a quick baseline on a couple of the rumors flying about and things to clear up. On Steph Marbury and Mikki Moore going to the Celtics:…

Recap: Cavs Get Win, Think About More Important Errands To Be Done Later

    Overview: With the Grizzlies’ offense absolutely stifled by the Cavaliers for 48 minutes, the Cavs were able to cruise to an easy win despite no starter having a particularly notable offensive performance. Daniel Gibson went for a team-high 19 as LeBron James sat the entire fourth quarter for the second game in a row. Delonte West did not play. Cavs-Related Bullets: Well, when your defense is this good,…

Recap: We’re Back In Business.

  Overview:  With a lineup at full strength for the first time in months, the Cavaliers absolutely blew the Pistons off the floor with a dominating performance that resembled the blowouts of the early season. Delonte West went for a game-high 25 in his return. Cavs-Related Bullets: Oh, good lord that was fun. This team at full strength is something to behold. Delonte is so vitally important to this team….

Recap: A Supposedly Great Game I Never Want To See Again

  Overview: The Cavs overcame an extremely sloppy first half and weak defensive outing against a hungry Bucks team behind 23 points from Mo Williams and an absolute deluge from LeBron James, who scored 55, one shy of his career high, while setting his career high for three-pointers with eight.  Cavs-Related Bullets: Holy freaking crap. LeBron. First and foremost, that was absolutely insane. If anyone can remember the last time…

You Can’t Always Blame Your Problems On DMZ

In case you’re confused as to why this is here: sometimes I write essays that just don’t have a good place to go. Now I have a home for them. Enjoy.  The effects of Michael Lewis’ article have been wide-ranging, and certainly seems to have more sticking power than when +/- articles started getting run back in 2005 with Jason Collins as the posterchild of defense-we can at least accept…

Post-Mortem On The Trade Deadline

So the trade deadline has come and gone, and we’ve stood pat. I won’t lie, I’m a little disappointed. For years now I’ve harbored dreams of that fat expiring contract bringing in Gilbert Arenas or Amare Stoudemire and adding that second bona-fide all-star with LeBron James, or another huge name. But it wasn’t meant o be. Let’s take a peek at why.    -As it turns out, Amare and Bosh…

Recap: Back To Work

  Overview: The Cavs’ post All-Star break funk didn’t even last a full quarter, as the Cavs overcame a sluggish start to take control of the game and calmly pick apart the Bosh-less Raptors.  Cavs-Related Bullets: -LeBron had a very workman-like 20/9/9 on 9-17 shooting tonight: he didn’t try to force any drives and basically took what was there the entire game. I really liked how he played after starting…

Possible Halftime Activity: Vote For Me in Debate

Hey all, hope you’re watching the game, but at 9PM EST (6PT) I signed up to be in a live-debate over at sports2debate.com. It’ll pull me away from the game for a little while, unfortunately, but I’ll catch what I missed from the arcives and it should be fun. I’m up against You Got Dunked On, and I’m afraid he’ll bring fans, so go over there, watch me try to…

Hey, meet me.

My little “meet your blogger” tidbit is up on TrueHoop. So go meet me. Also, for the record, I like Jamison but am not down with paying him all-star money until 2012. That has albatross written all over it. That is all.

Here We Go.

I’M PUTTING THIS ABOVE THE PICTURE: THE CAVS DO NOT HAVE AMARE STOUDEMIRE. But it’s become a possibility. According to some rumor mills and some message-board scuttlebutt, Amare could be a Cavalier before the end of the trade deadline. (All message-board scuttlebutt courtesy of realcavsfans.com) Windhorst is on it too, although he’s got a more pessimistic point of view about the realities of the situation.  What’s the deal on the…
