03/10 Morning Minute: Slowly, But Surely

 Though the Cavaliers were able to hold off the Pacers during a snowy weekend game, we’re still looking at a team that desperately needs to get healthy for the home stretch.  Thankfully, good news has come across the wire as Sasha Pavlovic is slated to return this week.   Fans may hardly have any recollection of

Making (frozen) lemonade

So I settled in this afternoon to watch a little Cavaliers basketball, when I discovered to my chagrin that Fox Sports Ohio was blank on my cable system. (Hmmm….flip to ESPN, it’s on, Sports Time Ohio, it’s on too.) After several attempts I decide that it must be a problem with the pregame show, as

03/08 Morning Minute: Kidding Around

While I’m not a Bill Livingston fan, I occasionally envy him only in the fact that he gets to write about things the second he comes up with them.  Most of us bloggers that have other things in life to deal with from time to time come up with ideas to write about, but have

03/07 Morning Minute: That Stings

Man. Talk about taking one on the chin. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, but I turned this game on in the second quarter. I saw LeBron James nail the three-pointer from the time line to end the half, and then took off to meet a few buddies at a local establishment. By

Cavaliers get beat down.

Joakim Noah had the game of his young career against the player that once tried to throw him under the bus. Noah finished with 13 points and 20 rebounds against former teammate Ben Wallace. Deng and Gordon also had 20 points+ as the Bulls rolled over the Cavs. LeBron scored 39, but only managed 3

03/06 Morning Minute: Now Pinch Hitting…

Scott had meetings all day, so you’re stuck with Rick for this edition of the Morning Minute. (Seriously, doesn’t his boss know there is work to be done here too?) We don’t talk much college hoops here at WFNY, but have to give props to Kent State’s team. Last night they beat Miami to clinch

Runaway Train…

The “L-Train” as Cavs color man Austin Carr calls him, was on a collision course with the 50 point plateau Wednesday night. In his first game since Kobe dropped 52 points in 51 minutes, LeBron answered back with 50 in 44 minutes. Don’t think for a second that this was a coincidence. After his performance

LeBron James’ MVP Bid Continues

While LeBron James continues his assault on the rest of the NBA, many media outlets have been trying their hardest to find any other possible player to toss into MVP consideration.  Last year, it was Dirk Nowitzki… Two years ago, Steve Nash.  This year, there is no doubting that Chris Paul has done amazing things

Happy Gladiator Day, folks!  That’s right.  Tonight, at 7pm in Quicken Loans Arena, football comes back from its two-month hiatus as the Cleveland Gladiators will take on the New York Dragons.  And you all know what that means.  Lots and lots of Bernie.  29 Touchdowns from Derek Anderson?  Pssh.  Try 85 TDs coming from the hands of Gladiator

LeBron steals momentum, and a win

After the trade dust has settled, and the players learn the new systems one thing will remain. LeBron still wears the wine and gold. That was the difference for the Cavaliers Sunday, who played without starting center and second leading scorer Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Zydrunas was inactive with a strained back. The Cavaliers originally listed Z

Newble, Take Two?

Former Cavalier Back On The Market When the Cavaliers made their “blockbuster” trade last week, one of the moving pieces was G/F/ Whatever-you-need Ira Newble, who was shipped to Seattle as part of the acquisition of Delonte West and Wally Szczerbiak. Well now, Ira Newble is about to be a free agent again. The Sonics

03/01 Morning Minute: In Like A Lion

A great win for the Cavaliers last night, although there were a few points near the end where the game was far from over. A terrific breakdown by Rick, including the ever wonderful +/- numbers that were very telling. Hopefully our big men can use this game to catapult their momentum in the right direction.

Yep. He’ll fit right inWith an extra day in the month of February, Browns GM Phil Savage has wasted no time making a splash.  I mentioned yesterday that the team had significant cap space, and that I hoped that the abundance of space would not be wasted on a long-term Derek Anderson deal.  Well, it

02/28 Morning Minute: More Minus Than Plus

A few days ago, I said that last night’s Cavaliers contest with the Boston Celtics would be very telling.  And telling it was. Even by outscoring the Celtics 25-17 in the fourth quarter, Cleveland could not overcome a slow start that saw only 16 first quarter points.  In fact, Delonte West was the only starting

Milestones- LeBron 10,000; Mike Brown 1

This was not a good night Cleveland fans. LeBron James became the youngest player to reach the 10,000 point plateau on a dunk in the second half, but that was the lone highlight. The Celtics won 92-87 but this game wasn’t really that close. Boston is one of, if not the best defensive team in
