Well, it’s a complicated case you know… about what happens next for the Cavs. A lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what-have-you’s for LeBron James, Dan Gilbert and Koby Altman to ponder. Frankly, there’s just a lotta strands to keep in our heads, man… lotta strands like the draft… free agency… and the future of the team. Probably too many strands for the old Duder to keep straight… but maybe not…

After two disheartening losses to the Warriors, I’m almost left speechless. That didn’t stop me from hopping into the podcast booth with Nate Smith though to try and make sense of what’s happening right now. The Warriors picked up another win tonight. Kevin Durant grabbed a super efficient 26 points on 10-14 shooting while Stephen Curry hit a Finals record nine 3s to put up 33. Throughout the night, the…

After almost a week of hot take rhetoric, narratives both succinct and false, national media puffery and endless debates about every possible storyline leading up to this epically hyped (overhyped?) rubber match of a Finals… shouldn’t we just take a cue from Conan and get to the action already? I mean… why should you take another 90+ minutes out of your day to hear more Cavs v. Warriors redux-dux? Well……

I got in studio with Mark on Thursday evening just before the Cavs put the Celtics to bed.  We spent a lot of time talking about the likely Cavs/Warriors matchup, how well Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving are fitting in with LeBron James, and a whole lot more how the rest of the NBA might respond to the Cavs and Warriors dominance.

One game into the 2017 NBA Playoffs, things are playing out pretty much as expected… unless of course you’re a Celtics, Raptors or Clippers fan and you find your home court advantage got cracked like an Easter egg. From a Cavalier perspective, Game 1 against the Pacers might have been a wee bit more fragile than we hoped for, but still a close win is better than a close loss….

Recap: Golden State 126, Cleveland 91 (MLK Redux)

2017-01-17

Cleveland walked into a Bay Area buzzsaw tonight, getting sliced in half by the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs went up 7-0 to start the game and never trailed. Cleveland seemed lackadaisical on defense, uninspired on offense, poorly coached, and… old, as the younger, hungrier Dubs put it to them for the second year in a row on MLK day. Lets get to it. First Quarter: Cleveland came out with three misses and…

  Tom Pestak, EvilGenius, and Nate Smith tried to ignore all the tinsel in the broadcast booth as we fired up a pre-Christmas pod. The Warriors matchups, both in the Finals and at Christmas, were heavily in our discussion as we looked back and looked ahead to the December 25th showdown. Much of our bull session revolved around whether the Cavs need another big man, or even if all the big men…

Taking a page from of Tom Pestak’s post earlier this week. Ben Werth and Nate Smith played a little game of “Trend or Outlier?” when it comes to the Cavs and this early NBA season. Will LeBron go full on Magic Johnson this year? Are the Bulls for Real? Is Atlanta better? Are the Warriors worse? Will Tristan Thompson score over five points a game? Will Kay Felder play a role?…
