Recap: Atlanta 111, Cleveland 108 (or, Vinced & Burked)

2018-12-30

This was a fun one, Cavs fans. Cleveland battled back from an 11 point early first quarter deficit to tie the game, only to be done in by missed free throws, bad execution, and an inability to rebound as they were edged out in the final minute by Vince Carter and the Atlanta Hawks. Vinsanity was in the air in Atlanta as the 41 year old Carter turned back the…

Recap: Atlanta 133, Cleveland 111 (or, Stink-tion Level Event)

2018-10-22

Right now, the Cavs are arguably the worst team in the NBA. The Atlanta Hawks were ranked 29th in the NBA by ESPN’s preseason power poll, and despite missing a starter and two rotation players, the Cavs just gave them their first win. While the 30th ranked Kings won, the Cavaliers lost resoundingly to a team they were favored to beat by eight. To make matter worse, the Cavs rolled…

With such a disparate group of players potentially available (from bigs to smalls to every swing…

Competitive Psychopath: A Collin Sexton Story

2018-06-18

After the Cavs netted the Nets unprotected first round pick in the Kyrie trade, I slowly began wading in the 2018 draft prospect waters. The undertow of finding a longterm replacement for Uncle Drew organically pulled me towards the point guard prospects, and that’s when my curiosity with Collin Sexton began. Sexton’s high school highlights blew me away. He attacked the defense as if it he was a bail bondsman…

From Distance: Value in Size

2018-02-16

Four point play… 1. The house I grew up in is not of the typical cookie-cutter design that mostly permeates Mentor, Ohio. It was built in the early part of the 20th century by a somewhat amateur architect with a penchant for international flair. As far as I know, he made four houses in all. Diagonally across our little boulevard, a beautiful Tudor sticks out like an incredibly healthy thumb….
