Not So Fast, Big Man

While digging through some recent blurbs regarding Cleveland Sports, with many thanks to reader And One, I came across Brian Windhorst’s piece over at the Akron Beacon-Journal regarding Zydrunas Ilgauskas.  As you already know, Big Z has had some foot injuries in his past – some of epic proportions – that have kept him at bay.  Thankfully,

02/21 Morning Minute: Second Time’s A Charm

If these triple-doubles keep rolling in, one is bound to lead to a win.  While a win over Houston would have been nice, beating a conference rival in Indiana is just what we needed to get back on track after a sub-par finish before the All-Star break.  James put up 31, 14 and 12, but the

The Cavs Trade Rumors Continue

Now, while I realize that Chad Ford is the same guy that rumored Larry Brown to be locked and loaded to coach the Cavaliers not all to long ago, his latest bit has me at least a little intrigued. “The deal, as described to me by a player agent, would send Miller, [Brian] Cardinal and

More on Brady Quinn

If you haven’t heard (or read) by now, ESPN Page 2 writer LZ Granderson had a an unfortunate story to share from his recent visit of New Orleans.  I say “unfortunate” because while I’m unsure of the surrounding words that were shared, no one deserves to be threatened while simply walking down the street. The

02/20 Morning Minute: When a Triple-Double Isn’t Enough

Granted, the team simply did not play well in last night’s game against Houston, but when your leader goes for 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists and you still lose, it is safe to say that something is wrong.  Combining a sluggish second quarter with a 38 percent clip from the floor, and that’s

Is There An Answer In Free Agency?

The NFL Offseason: Where Mel Kiper gets more TV air time than the President of the United States and veterans (and their respective agents) are on the prowl for long-term, guaranteed money.  Thankfully, at least for fans of the Cleveland Browns, Phil Savage has resurrected the offense via key free agent additions over the course

02/19 Morning Minute: Where Can I Sign?

Well, it looks like Jason Kidd is heading to Dallas after all.  All it took was a different set of veterans – two veterans that have neither a no-trade clause nor a big mouth.  In fact, all it took was a vet that wasn’t even playing at the time.  If you ask me, Keith Van Horn

02/18 Morning Minute: Apologies

Editor’s Note: I apologize for a lack of “minute” today. I had an entire post written and upon submission, our internet connection apparently didn’t like what I had to say and the entire post was lost.   I do not have the time to rewrite the entire post. Instead, here’s a picture from last night’s

Remember When?

While looking for some solid video evidence of last night’s All-Star festivities, I managed to stumble upon this gem. It was only added to the database a few days ago, so it may be new to most of you. And while I’m not sure that classic hoops highlights really go with Linkin Park, feel free

02/17 Morning Minute: The Winner, and STILL Undefeated…

Ohio’s most underrated athlete? While I admit that I am not the biggest boxing fan in the world, or probably even on my street, I did find myself at a local establishment last night to watch Youngstown, Ohio’s own Kelly Pavlik attempt to repeat what was considered a major upset a few months back: Beat Jermain

Point Guard Drama

Bibby to Atlanta, but what about Jason Kidd? With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, we have seen (arguably) one of the largest contingencies of “big name” players being moved from one team to another. And its understandable to be flustered that all of this moving is going on when we have a team in Cleveland

02/16 Morning Minute: Boobie For Mayor

Though I was unsure how Daniel Gibson would fare in yesterday’s (T-Mobile!) Rookie-Sophomore challenge with his hammy, it appears that the kid did alright. It isn’t often that you’ll see a 33-point game ENTIRELY off of three-point field goals. Gibson drained 11-of-20 in the contest, with seven coming in the first half. If this wasn’t

02/15 Morning Minute: Is Anybody Out There?

Though the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has lost an immense amount of luster over the years, there is no hiding the fact that their annual release is spurned by one thing and one thing only: the fact that there is relatively NOTHING going on in the sports world at this time of year.  Short days,

02/13 Morning Minute: Brady Quinn’s Escapades

In news that probably won’t go over well regardless of his actual involvement, Brady Quinn’s name has now been linked to an altercation that occurred early on New Year’s Day in Columbus, Ohio. The 9-1-1 call has been posted on Cleveland.com, and the caller is definitely quick to call out Quinn as one of the members in the

02/12 Morning Minute: 40 Points Of Freedom

Yes, Dwight, that is a “40” next to “32” If you were to tell me that LeBron James would put up 29 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists and was not the leading scorer in the game, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t believe you. It was simply one of those games where a player

02/11 Morning Minute: AI, DA, and CC

Could this portion of the schedule be catching up to our Cavaliers?  Smack in the middle of their four-in-five run, the Cavs simply fell flat on their collective face last night, failing to top 20 points in either of the final two periods.  LeBron did his part (30 points in 33 minutes), but Larry Hughes

Yes, today is the day of the Pro Bowl.  Yes, I know that Brett Frave and Tom Brady aren’t playing.  But frankly, I don’t care.  Because Braylon Edwards, Joshua Cribbs, Joe Thomas, Ryan Pontbriand and Derek Anderson are.  I know that the game has lost its luster over the years, but as a Cleveland fan

02/09 Morning Minute: Who Is This Guy?

Please answer this question. Who was that guy wearing the Ira Newble jersey last night? Slashing, hitting the boards, actually finishing strong? While I wish he would produce like this more often, given the injures to the Cavaliers this week, we needed a game like this out of him – and we needed it badly.
