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,

Manu Ginobili sees your 40, and raises you six more.  With a quick shot back to yesterday’s blurb regarding Branson Wright’s comparison to the San Antonio Spurs, let’s compare injured players.  San Antonio DNP: Brent Barry, Francisco Elson, Matt Bonner, Tony Parker, Ian Mahinmi Cleveland DNP: Eric Snow, Cedric Simmons, Daniel Gibson, Sasha Pavlovic, Anderson Varejao,

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

02/10 (Not-so) Morning Minute: Cribbs to the Crib

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.

Wait, Cleveland Could Have Had Marion?

A good friend of mine forwarded me a piece from today’s chat with ESPN’s Chad Ford (subscription required).  Within it, Ford was apparently discussing the Cleveland Cavaliers and their current rank amongst the NBA as well as the East.  And then he said this… The Cavs are doing well in a bad conference. I still think

Could Romeo Crennel Be Suspended?

Like most fans that were thrilled to see the New England Patriots lose the Super Bowl, I had also been pretty keen on the idea of this whole “Spygate” issue dating back to 2001. That was at least until today, when a post by Michael David Smith got me thinking. If all [of “Spygate”] is

Boobie Gibson Among Great Company

I had been harping on this for a while now, and I’m not quite sure how I missed the following (fairly big) news: Cavaliers guard Daniel “Boobie” Gibson today was named one of the contestants for the NBA’s Three-Point Shootout during All-Star weekend in New Orleans. The event is scheduled for Feb. 16. Gibson will
