Looking Back At The Cavaliers’ Trade Deadline


While the Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t actually make a trade on deadline day, they were extremely active in the days prior, dealing starters Rodney Hood and Alec Burks to the Portland Trailblazers and Sacramento Kings, respectively. When all was said an done, their spots on the roster were filled by Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss, but as is always the case when it comes to trades in the NBA, there is…


From Distance: When Hope Returns


Four point play…ok, six this week I would call that a successful day at the office, Mr Altman. Or should we be praising Dan Gilbert? Moondog? After weeks of tired speculation and emotional misery in The Land, Koby Altman, at least officially, saved the season from the depths of Basketball Inferno. It’s hard to even know where to start when talking about the enormity of this trade deadline, so I…


The Point-Fourward: Just a Break


  Four things I’m thinking about… 1. In any good breakup, there is a period of freedom induced euphoria followed by a loud internal question of “are we really doing this?“.

Recap: Sixers 95, Cavaliers 92(Or, Stop Asking About Dion, There is an NBDL Game On!)

When Dion’s cousin began to tweet, things got more interesting away from the…


Initial Thoughts on the Deng Trade

    Well, that was unexpected. After an extended dance with the Lakers about a possible Bynum-Gasol swap, the Cavs have decided to trade Andrew Bynum’s immediately erasable contract and 3 draft picks to the Bulls for Luol Deng and his $14.275 million expiring contract. I’m going to come right out and say it: This trade carries some long-term risks, but in the short-term, it’s an absolute coup for Chris…


Cavs Shopping Andy?

It appears to be well known by now that the Cavs are gauging Anderson Varejao’s trade value around the league, and that he has great value. It seems like this has gone to another level, and that the Timberwolves are seriously interested. How much can Grant get them to offer? Nikola Pekovic, a pick and Derrick Williams would be a hell of a package. Maybe we could add Boobie and grab Luke…
