Podcast Episode 65: Love and (Playoff) Basketball

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

With all the Cavs news floating around this week, we figured we needed to bring in a ringer. Former CtBer, Colin McGowan, joined me and Tom in the podcast booth for a marathon discussion. “The Mess in Massachusetts” weighed heavily on our minds, as did Kevin Love’s future with the Cavs, and that was just the start. Then we asked the tough questions. Who’s going to step up for the Cavs? Were the Cleveland and Boston suspensions just? Can the Cavs win in the next round? We broke down the playoff match-ups for the Cavs and the rest of the East, and gave our latest finals picks too. Then the Kevin Love surgery news broke! After lamenting, we added our thoughts on David and EG’s Hack-a-DeAndre duel, video games, the the champagne of beers, and, of course T-Shirts! WHEW! Thanks to @cs_mcgowan for a very fun podcast, despite the bad news. Here’s Colin’s Kevin Love article from Wednesday, plus his pieces on the Boston Game, J.R. Smith, and free-throws.

Russia's head coach Blatt celebrates victory against Brazil after the men's preliminary round Group B basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

The Cavs have been conducting an intense investigation to find the best coach.  The search has taken them all the way from Los Angeles, Tyron Lue, to Israel, David Blatt.  They’ve covered the whole spectrum of expierence too.  Lue has never been a head coach, while Blatt has been a head coach, just not in the NBA.  However, Blatt is a winner if you hold the Israel league, the Israeli Cup, and the Euroleague championships in high esteem.  He won all of those this past season.

David Blatt is going to be fresh on Dan Gilbert’s mind after today because Blatt is having his first face-to-face meeting with the Cavs.  Bob Finnan reports on the situation.

David Blatt, 55, ex-coach of Maccabi Tel Aviv. He’s scheduled to make his second interview and first face-to-face meeting with Griffin and Cavs majority owner Dan Gilbert on June 18. (more…)
