Richard Jefferson was never supposed to be a Cleveland Cavalier. In the summer of 2015, Jefferson had agreed to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks after the team had agreed to contracts with Wesley Matthews and DeAndre Jordan. Jefferson was coming off a solid season as a backup forward for the Mavs, shooting over 40% from three for the second straight year, and the Mavericks were thinking big with their new…

Gone Griff

2017-06-28

I respect the hell out of David Griffin, not necessarily for the moves he made as the Cavs general manager, but for his steady positivity during turbulent times, and his strength to build a championship roster while he was battling cancer.

The Point Four-ward: No Points Bulletin

2016-09-07

Four points I’m thinking about the Cleveland Cavaliers… 1.) With training camp opening in just a few weeks, the Cavs are slowly accumulating their roster of invitees. Assuming the Cavs eventually reach a deal with J.R. Smith, they will carry thirteen guaranteed contracts heading into camp.
