Check Out This Clown…

Coincidentally, as Rock mentioned in this piece below, many writers are focusing on the physicality that is involved within the Cavs/Wizards series.  And while it is typically the bloggers that are discredited due to their “opinions,” I direct your attention to Tom Knott of the Washington Times. In his latest piece, titled “Oh, These Forces of

Playoff Tested

Cavaliers Show They Are A Team That Knows How To Win In The Playoffs…..So Far The talk of this first round battle between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers so far has centered around the physicality of the series. The hard fouls, the technicals, the flagrants, the ejections, the introduction of the term “LeBron” foul.

How long can LeBron take a beating?

Count Les Levine impressed with the play of LeBron James, but… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iczi5PDUj08[/youtube] LeBron isn’t going to buckle because of the pounding he’s taking in this season. You have to wonder though, Mike Brown says all the time that LeBron gets the same punishment that teams used to give Shaq. At this rate, what will his

Amen, John Hollinger

Forwarded my way from loyal reader Mike, we have this question from John Hollinger’s ESPN Chat today: Dellis (Washington DC): Are the refs fairly calling the Wizards/Cavs series? The Wizards Big 3 are constantly assaulted, while the King’s travels are never called and he seems to get foul calls on every touch. SportsNation John Hollinger: (4:04

What Are Others Saying?

  Obviously, we’re thrilled to see the Cavs roll out to a 2-0 lead over the Wizards.  We’ve whipped out Alltell commercials and even created a comic strip.  But that’s what you do when you’re biased.  What about those that aren’t along the same rooting lines as ourselves?  Let’s take a look… D.C. Sports Bog

Second Verse, Same As The First

Since the last comic depicting the latest C.C. Sabathia combustion got such a great response, I thought that a “Game 2” comic would fit in quite nicely this morning.  And what would a good comic be without a little Agent Zero complete with brick-action as well as that piece of garbage that is Brendan Haywood.  The only

WWHHIIIIIZZAARRRD!

Um, Washington? You may want to rethink your playoff strategy… The most dominating playoff performance by a Cavalier team? Check. LeBron gets his, and sets up teammates? Check. Cavalier big men box out and take away second chance opportunities? Check. A shooter other than LeBron knocks down some long range shots? Check. Cavs don’t allow

Gil Arenas Injured?

With Game 2 tipping off in less than eight hours, the Washington Post Wizards Insider sheds some light on what may be an interesting development: Gilbert Arenas’ injured right wrist. When I first read the blurb, I thought that he may had done it early in the fourth quarter, which could have lent some insight

Coach Snow?

You couldn’t ask for much more from Saturday’s Cavs game.  It was physical, there were countless lead changes, and in the end, we came out on top.  Like most people, I was extremely thankful that the Cavs changed up the offense for some of the fourth quarter, allowing Daniel Gibson to bring the ball up

LeBron, Cavaliers 80% there

During the game we were beat over the head with this statistic- the team that wins game one has won 80% of the first round match-ups. So this one is in the bag right? (Wow. That looks dumber than it sounded.) The Cavaliers earned a hard fought (pun intended) game one victory on Sunday. All

A Wasted Season

LeBron James Captures First Scoring Title You know, in many ways, it was poetic justice that this regular season ended with LeBron James sitting on the sidelines in street clothes. Somehow, LeBron’s greatness this year was relegated to the sidelines. For all of the Cavaliers struggles and issues as a team, lost in the fog

Forty-Two Minutes For Wally

I’m being told that there was actually a Cavs game last night.  Odd that they consider it a “game” when both LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas are inactive, but I’m sure some fans got some excellent deals on tickets.  Regardless, something that was much-needed occurred last night: Actual playing time for Wally Szczerbiak. Wally World had totaled

LeBron Teams Up Against Poverty

While many are likely caught up in the beginning of the NBA Playoffs, or even the final few seconds of the game against the Sixers, LeBron James continues to add to his philanthropic ways by joining female tennis star Maria Sharapova in a fight against poverty. Sharapova, the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program,

Not so fast Philly…

A few weeks back Scott was invited to debate whether Cleveland or Philadelphia was the more tortured sports town. I suppose after tonight Philly fans will demand a recount. Maybe this is one of those wins. Maybe this is one of the defining moments in a season. Perhaps the Cavaliers will look back on this

“Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.” –Alfred A.
