A chink in the King’s armour

LeBron’s Back Reason For Panic If you only watched the highlights on Sports Center, then you missed it. The ESPN highlight show had plenty to say about the Cavalier superstar scoring 24 points in the first quarter, and that he finished with 34 points. They actually said that he showed no ill-effects from the bad

Welcome Back Daniel Gibson, Defense

 Over the last few games, the Cavaliers have had their share of second-half collapse.  Thankfully, the tables were turned last night as LeBron and Company went into halftime down by four, only to hold the Nets to 30 total points in the second half (with only nine in the fourth quarter) to come out on

LeBron James, Kevin Garnett Playoff Promo

Though the Cavaliers aren’t exactly taking the world (or Eastern conference, for that matter) by storm, LeBron James continues to be the face of the NBA. Here’s hoping that his marketability can at least stick around through a few rounds of the post-season. For now, check out the promotional video that pits James against Boston’s

Falling On Deaf Ears

Has Cleveland Cavaliers Coach Mike Brown Lost The Team? The idea of tenure in NBA coaching circles in pretty laughable. I’m sure the coaches themselves don’t find the numbers quite so funny, I suppose, but the average length of term for NBA coaches is at about 2.3 seasons. Mike Brown is about to finish his

Weighing Options With Eric Snow

 Though Eric Snow has been sporting a suit more often than a jersey (well, warm-ups) over the past few months, Brian Windhorst chimes in today with a solid piece on the inner-battle that Danny Ferry and the Cavs may be facing with Snow and his injured knee.  There is no denying that Snow’s future as a

“The LeBron Card”

And so it continues.  With each move that the New York Knicks appear to have on the itinerary, we continue to have to consider the LeBron impact.  If we do this, what will LeBron think?  What about if we do that?  It makes you wonder how a team can operate when they’re more focused on another team’s player than

Wanted: Second Half Intensity

Magic 101 – Cavaliers 86 (Box) The good news is that Ben Wallace looked like he knew what he was doing last night with his nine rebounds, four blocks and a steal. I guess we can ignore his 0-for-1 from the floor (another miss from point-blank range), as we didn’t bring him here for his

04/04 Morning Minute: At Least We Have the NIT

At least LeBron couldn’t see the 17-point lead disappear Unreal. That’s really the only term I have been able to come up with this morning. Double-digit leads and a seven-footer with an open attempt at a dunk that could seal the deal. Only to wind up like that Sprite commercial where the guy gets rejected

Diamond in the rough

The guys at With Malice declared April 5th to be Unsung Player Day. This post is part of that celebration…. Danny Ferry found the Cavaliers a very special player. A guy that has been so valuable, it is hard to imagine where the Cavs would be without him this season. By the way, this has nothing to

No James, No Problem. Thankfully.

There’s no denying the fact that the Cavaliers are a different team when playing without LeBron James.  There’s also no denying the fact that this team has had their troubles on the road.  And thankfully, the Charlotte Bobcats allowed Cleveland to overcome both of those difficulties as James fouled out with 3:56 left in the

Nope, No “Glue Guys” Here!

…At least per Empty the Bench.  But not that I can disagree with their assessment, based on their own criteria.  Enrico over at The 700 Level led me to the original post, as the Sixers have Samuel Dalembert holding things together over in Philly.  The typical cast of “role players” also got the nod, including

Well played sir…

Found this through The Big Lead’s Roundup. You probably have seen the Vogue cover with LeBron and Gisele on the front. You probably read Jemele Hill’s or Jason Whitlock’s commentary about whether or not this was a travesty or triumph for African-Americans. For full disclosure, I saw the cover in the store before I read

4/01/08 Morning Minute- Hijacked!

That’s right, it’s Rick taking over the minute (again) today! Two things, ok maybe three things for your consideration today. First and foremost, that opener went exactly as you thought it would didn’t it? (shaking head no…) Come on, who had Sabathia struggles, bullpen is shaky, questionable calls, and the Indians only score in 2

Signs of life

I have to admit, watching the first half of the Cavaliers win over Philadelphia, I was ready to write a stick a fork in ’em post. The Cavs looked old, slow and tired in the first half. The Sixers ran them out of town in the first quarter. Forget running on turnovers, the Sixers were

Cavaliers Embarrassed On The Road…Again

“Embarrassed” actually may be an understatement for this one. Heading in to Detroit for a much-needed win, it seems as if the only “W” that LeBron James was able to Witness was thanks to Stephen Curry of Davidson in the NCAA game the night before because losing by 14 to a division rival is simply

Guard Swap?

  There is no denying the injury bug over the last few weeks.  While Ben Wallace is still out with back issues, the Cavaliers are hoping to get Daniel Gibson back this weekend against the Pistons.  But it may be at the expense of fellow-guard Delonte West.  Brian Windhorst reports the dirt. Delonte West has

03/27 Minute: Morning After

I woke up this morning to find that the NBA.com scoreboard that I referenced late last night was in fact the correct score at the end of the game.  Unfortunate, really.  I’d cover my thoughts on the game, but I think that Carolyn’s blog over at And One coupled with Rick’s recap last night do

He scored too fast…

As soon as the ball left LeBron’s hand and went through the rim I knew it. This game was over. But not in a good way. Let’s backtrack and see how we got here first. The story of the game for the Hornets was MVP candidate Chris Paul. (Yes, I will hear arguments for Paul

Daniel Gibson’s Return: WaitingForNextGame

While Ben Wallace’s back spasms will keep him out for the near future, Cavs fans had a glimpse of hope for Daniel Gibson’s return to the hardwood when he practiced on Tuesday with hope to get cleared for tonight’s game against the Hornets. However, fans can now put their hopes for “Boobie” back on the
