Getting Better, One Player At A Time

Meanwhile, center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is suffering from a cold and is now listed as questionable

02/26 Morning Minute: Crickets…

You know it is a slow day in Cleveland sports when two of the top stories regard “reunions.”  Apparently, Tribe players Ryan Garko and Ben Francisco attended the same high school, while Delonte West is rejoined with a former college teammate in Dwayne Jones.  Apparently, West and Jones were quite the pranksters… One of their

02/25 Morning Minute: Well, That Wasn’t So Bad

It isn’t every day that a Sunday evening game against the Grizzlies would draw as much scrutiny as yesterday’s contest did, but thankfully for those watching at home (as well as those in attendance), the result was a favorable one.  As Rick already discussed, there is plenty of things to be happy about.  There are

Game 1 in the bag…

Let’s get this out of the way first. The Memphis Grizzlies are not a good basketball team. Since trading Pau Gasol for spare parts and change, the Grizzlies are 1-10. Tonight they played without scorer Mike Miller. This would be another team that the 8-man Cavaliers might have beaten. That being said, this was a

02/24 Morning Minute: Today’s The Day…

… where we get to see what the future holds. As discussed earlier, Danny Ferry did his job, now the rest is in the hands of Mike Brown. I share the same sentiments in that tonight’s game should feature the starting lineup of West, Szczerbiak, James, Wallace and Ilgauskas. In fact, if only for the

Good Morning Mike Brown…

That was a great win last night huh coach? LeBron, Damon Jones, Zydrunas, Devin Brown, heck even Eric Snow gave you everything they had. It helps that Washington wasn’t making the extra pass, but a great team effort none the less. Now you have some work to do. All of Cleveland will be watching Sunday

02/23 Morning Minute: Who Needs The New Guys?

If there is any possibility that you had either been in a coma, overseas with no access to the United States, or just plain out of it and you pick up a newspaper today to see the Cleveland-Washington box score, I wish I could be there to see your face. The fact that LeBron James

 Wow.  What a night to be away from the computer.  In hindsight, it may have been for the better, as it allowed for some digestion of everything that went on with the Cavaliers (and Browns!!) in the last 24 hours. Earlier this week, I mentioned all of the D-named players on our roster without consideration

Apologies and Analysis

Early Reflections On The Cavaliers “Big” Trade First things first, I’m a man of my word. I said earlier today that if the Cavaliers actually pulled off a trade, I would publicly apologize to Brian Windhorst for doubting his early reports on the trade. Well, the trade rumor was legit, and so here we are.

Friday’s roster…ugh

  Ladies and gentlemen…the bench! The Cavs will not have their new toys in time to play against the Wizards on Friday, nor will they have their recently discarded toys. Of course, they are still battling injuries as well. So who in the world is left to play? Well there’s LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Latest Trade Rumors

Trade Rumors Supposedly Involve Shawn Marion Following all this trade talk has been a bit of a whirlwind. As I promised last night, I have been keeping my eyes peeled and my ears open today. First, Brian Windhorst released his latest blog post about the trade rumors, saying, “Woke up this morning to an explosion

Lost in the bustle of possible trades…

The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns are very close to a deal with Jamal Lewis. The deal is reportedly for two years with an option for a third. Browns GM Phil Savage told a local radio show that he expects this deal to be completed within 24 hours. That is certainly good news for

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

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

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
