From Distance: Los Angeles Cavs

2018-07-06

  four point play…. 1. When one makes bold predictions, one will occasionally be required to down some tasty crow. Last week, I whiffed badly on two substantial predictions: LeBron would stay, and PG13 would be a Laker. Oops. It happens. I know I’m not alone with those particular stances. As more information comes out post Decision 3.0, it’s easy to retroactively see all the “writing on the wall.” It’s…

The Allure of the West

2018-07-04

From CtB, Happy Fourth of July. For today’s article, Excl and James Michael Kenney-Prentiss team up to bring you the following meditation on LeBron’s move west, to the city of angels. The West – majestic, mysterious, beckoning – beckoning all would-be adventurers with promises of gold, of glory, of the indefinable, yet desirable. The allure has captured many an imagination, and has spurred some of the greatest triumphs and saddest…

Five on Five: 2018 Free Agency Edition

2018-06-29

As Decision 3.0 arrives, how are you feeling? Where is your stress level? Excl – Surprisingly, my stress levels this time around are pretty low. Winning the title softens the blow, but I’m resigned to the fact that the franchise is handcuffed on the immediate improvement front. I’d prefer for LeBron to stay and cement his legacy Cleveland’s greatest athlete of all-time, but if he wants to bolt and lose…

Live Thread: Cavs vs Magic

2017-04-04

The Cavs recently escaped a painful 3 game losing streak, ending with demoralizing losses to the Spurs and Bulls. Tonight’s game against the magic would signify a 3 game win streak, and perhaps a changing of fortunes. With the much anticipated return of Threezus and Lebron’s continuing ascension into playoff form this game should be a thriller. The Cavs are gunning to take the season series to 3-0 while silencing critics…

Live Thread: Cavs @ Hawks, Game 4

2016-05-08

[KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK] “Housekeeping!” [KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK] “Hooousekeeeping! Please, we need to get in to sweep.” ======================================================== Somebody better answer the door and let in housekeeping.

2016-04-22

Mark Neal was out sick yesterday so I got to talk hoops with his producer, Justin Kinner. It turned out to be a more Cavs-centric Dayton Sports Scene segment than usual. Unbeknownst to me, there was a segment on Mike and Mike yesterday morning talking about the +/- divergence between LeBron+Delly and LeBron+Kyrie through the first two games of the playoffs. So Justin asked me to comment about that. I..uh..had…

Recap: Cavs 110, Hawks 108 (or, a Tale of Two Teams)

Featured Video Play Icon
2016-04-02

The “Two Teams” are both the Cavs.  They shared the spotlight tonight almost equally.  From the moment Mozgov was replaced by TT at the 5:37 mark of the 1st quarter until LeBron’s overwhelmingly violent dunk at the 2 minute mark of the 2nd quarter, the Cavs played as well as I have ever seen them in the LeBron 2.0 era.  From that point on the Cavs self-destructed at both ends…
