    Hooray! The Cavs are just a lot easier to watch with Irving in the mix. Here’s hoping Waiters is cleared as well.

    One good thing that happened from all of this is we found out Pargo can play and will be a nice backup to Kyrie. Cavs just need to be healthy then start to learn to win like the Browns are doing now.

    This makes me enjoy my WFNY sponsored Cavs tickets for tomorrow night even more. You guys are the best.

  • Enjoy, sir. I’ll be in-house as well. Glad Kyrie will be playing — had originally scored admission to see Mike Brown.
