Team Falters, Varejao Lounges People sometimes like to say ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same’. Unfortunately, when things don’t change, they have a funny way of still staying exactly the same. Imagine that. Last night, the Cavaliers once again displayed a simply pathetic defensive performance and even yet another superhuman performance
Big Z Logging Big Minutes….But Is This A Problem For The Future? People who have been following the NBA closely this season know that there’s a giant secret in the Association this year. Quietly, and under the radar, Cavaliers’ center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is quietly having one of, if not the, best seasons of his career.
Cavaliers’ Guard Out A Month With Bruise And no, I’m not talking about his bruised ego, his bruised confidence, or any other psyches that Larry Hughes may have injured in his short time with Cleveland. But Brian Windhorst reported today that Larry Hughes is expected to miss about a month with a bruised left leg.
This by the way is not a foul in the NBA. The refs determined that this was a jump ball. Really? Jump ball? I can see that Turkoglu is in fact touching the ball. I’ll give you that. Seems to me that the guy draping himself over LeBron with a knee in his back might
6 games in 9 days caught up to the Cavs last night, who simply ran out of gas. After a good win against the Clippers, the Cavs were spent when they arrived in Denver. Obviously the Nuggets played well. Allen Iverson was shooting the roof off the building, Carmelo got his and J.R. Smith came
First Look At New Book About LeBron Terry Pluto, formerly of the Akron Beacon-Journal and currently with the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Brian Windhorst, current beat writer for the Akron Beacon-Journal, have teamed up to write what looks to be a quite insightful book that looks into the becoming of LeBron James and his impact
LeBron James had a triple-double by the third quarter. It wasn’t enough to beat the Jazz. Seriously. James had 32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists. Cavs lose 103-101. We’ll give Ilgauskas a pass, he had 18 and 14. He certainly did his job again. Oh yeah, he had 4 blocks to go with that.
LeBron’s line from last night- 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 blocked shots in 42 minutes. He was hit in the face and had to receive treatment in the locker room in the first half. Despite LeBron’s big night, and Daniel Gibson’s hot shooting, the Cavs nearly blew that
Talkin’ Contracts As I’m sitting here watching the Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors tonight, I decided now would be a good time to talk about a few issues I’ve been meaning to get to lately but have been unable to due to a busy work schedule in the past week. The first thing
The Sky Is Not Falling… …Or is it? It’s hard to imagine how a season could get off to a worse start. Remember that stellar defense that carried the team through the playoffs last season? That was gone. Remember that new offense we’ve been hearing about all off season? That didn’t show up. Remember that
