From Dan Steinberg’s DC Sports Bog: As if he wasn’t drawing enough negative attention in the city of Cleveland. Make sure to check out Steinberg’s take. I’m sensing that someone thinks enough is enough with this clown. DeShawn Goes Vick [Washington Post]
Les blames Wizards for losses… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50JFbYyLvm0[/youtube] Les and I talked about this the other week. Some players thrive when ‘extra motivation’ is given. You would think that Brendan Haywood would have learned that lesson by now. You would think that seeing LeBron continue to dominate DeShawn Stevenson would be a clue. One might think that
By now, you’ve likely heard about the Jay-Z “diss track” aimed at DeShawn Stevenson. While I’m not the biggest fan of Jay getting involved in what I would like to be a complete non-issue, I figured that some of the readers may be interested in at least hearing the track. I’m sorry that I don’t
Though I’m a big fan of pitcher’s duals, I thought that Game 4 would provide us with a better comic for today. Thankfully, the entire game can be summarized in the final 28 seconds. As always, click on the images for the full size file. (All photos courtesy of the Associated Press)
I was out of town, so I was unable to live blog the game. But I did watch it, and here’s my recap in numbers and words. You can read Scott’s recap here. In particular, you need to read his spot-on take on DeShawn “Lock Smith” Stevenson. -When is a rivalry not a rivalry? I
Reporting that LeBron James scored 30+ points yet again is barely news. But only one game after Delonte West and Daniel Gibson combined to go 3-for-9 with nine points, the two guards were absolutely huge during Game 4, combining for 33 points including nine three-point field goals. West drained one with 5.4 seconds on the
Nuggets of gold from around the interwebs. Did you know that the Cavaliers/Wizards series is tied? No? That’s right, because it isn’t. The Cavaliers are still up 2-1, and if Washington wins on Sunday, they still have to win a game in Cleveland. But hey, whatever makes you feel better about yourself Washington fan. DeShawn
Daniel Gibson, LeBron James, and Ben Wallace Sulking The fact that the Cavaliers lost this game is not surprising. They had won 8 straight playoffs games against Washington. The Wizards were motivated and they were getting some much needed home crowd nourishment. What is surprising, however, is the way in which the Cavaliers lost this
I’ll let someone else discuss how silly it is to boo someone that you’d be more than happy to have on your team. Yes, the game was a ridiculous blow-out, and yes, the Wizard’s outplayed the Cavs. But there’s a solid chance that Wiz fans could be creeping up on Philly in terms of absurdity.
Les Levine on Washington’s game plan [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uChfMFwv1NE[/youtube] This video was obviously recorded before last night’s game. It’s funny how nobody that followed this Cavalier team expected them to win last night. The question I have from this segment- does Mike Brown really fight too hard for his players to get calls? Personally I wish he’d
No preview today, because not much has changed. The Cavs are playing the same team, and by now we know the matchups and what to look for. Join us tonight as we live blog the game, and feel free to join in on the discussion.
Jason Kidd and Mike Bibby It wasn’t all that long ago that many (most?) Cavaliers fans couldn’t stop talking about the Cavaliers trying to trade for a legit point guard, whether that be Jason Kidd or Mike Bibby. We here at WFNY were far from immune from talking about it, as Scott, Rick, and myself
When you have the opportunity to do good, you should take it. When someone needs help, by all means please do what you can. That’s why I’d like to take a moment and lend a helping hand to DeShawn Stevenson. It seems DeShawn is having a hard time understanding who Damon Jones is. (From DC
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
