02/18 Morning Minute: Apologies

Editor’s Note: I apologize for a lack of “minute” today. I had an entire post written and upon submission, our internet connection apparently didn’t like what I had to say and the entire post was lost.   I do not have the time to rewrite the entire post. Instead, here’s a picture from last night’s

Desperate Teams Provide Desperate Measures

Cleveland Teams Are Desperate To Keep Superstars In Town Sports are a funny thing. They make us all crazy. By ‘us’, I don’t just means fans. They make fans, owners, and writers all equally crazy. They provide us with a bit of a disjointed perception of reality, kind of like an alternate, or parallel, existence

Remember When?

While looking for some solid video evidence of last night’s All-Star festivities, I managed to stumble upon this gem. It was only added to the database a few days ago, so it may be new to most of you. And while I’m not sure that classic hoops highlights really go with Linkin Park, feel free

02/17 Morning Minute: The Winner, and STILL Undefeated…

Ohio’s most underrated athlete? While I admit that I am not the biggest boxing fan in the world, or probably even on my street, I did find myself at a local establishment last night to watch Youngstown, Ohio’s own Kelly Pavlik attempt to repeat what was considered a major upset a few months back: Beat Jermain

Point Guard Drama

Bibby to Atlanta, but what about Jason Kidd? With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, we have seen (arguably) one of the largest contingencies of “big name” players being moved from one team to another. And its understandable to be flustered that all of this moving is going on when we have a team in Cleveland

02/16 Morning Minute: Boobie For Mayor

Though I was unsure how Daniel Gibson would fare in yesterday’s (T-Mobile!) Rookie-Sophomore challenge with his hammy, it appears that the kid did alright. It isn’t often that you’ll see a 33-point game ENTIRELY off of three-point field goals. Gibson drained 11-of-20 in the contest, with seven coming in the first half. If this wasn’t

Public Enemy No. 1?

LeBron James and Jay-Z Host First Annual “Two Kings” Dinner A lot of times it’s much easier to dish out the advice than it is to follow your own advice. I literally just wrote a couple days ago that we need to all collectively just sit back and enjoy the LeBron show while we can

02/15 Morning Minute: Is Anybody Out There?

Though the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has lost an immense amount of luster over the years, there is no hiding the fact that their annual release is spurned by one thing and one thing only: the fact that there is relatively NOTHING going on in the sports world at this time of year.  Short days,

There’s no defending Manu!

What can you do? You shoot 51% as a team. You out-rebound your opponent. You hold their star player to 23 points on 38% shooting. LeBron scores 39, Hughes continues his hot streak with 26 points hitting 58% of his shots. The bench comes through with productive minutes from Devin Brown, Donyell Marshall and Damon

02/14 Morning Minute: DNPs, K2 and the Rich Get Richer

Manu Ginobili sees your 40, and raises you six more.  With a quick shot back to yesterday’s blurb regarding Branson Wright’s comparison to the San Antonio Spurs, let’s compare injured players.  San Antonio DNP: Brent Barry, Francisco Elson, Matt Bonner, Tony Parker, Ian Mahinmi Cleveland DNP: Eric Snow, Cedric Simmons, Daniel Gibson, Sasha Pavlovic, Anderson Varejao,

02/13 Morning Minute: Brady Quinn’s Escapades

In news that probably won’t go over well regardless of his actual involvement, Brady Quinn’s name has now been linked to an altercation that occurred early on New Year’s Day in Columbus, Ohio. The 9-1-1 call has been posted on Cleveland.com, and the caller is definitely quick to call out Quinn as one of the members in the

King Of His Castle, Indeed

LeBron Dictates The Future Of The Franchise With His Actions, Not His Words LeBron James has always been a bit more of a lead by example guy than a lead with words type of player. He inspires the confidence of his teammates more so when he gets that look in his eye and he begins

02/12 Morning Minute: 40 Points Of Freedom

Yes, Dwight, that is a “40” next to “32” If you were to tell me that LeBron James would put up 29 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists and was not the leading scorer in the game, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t believe you. It was simply one of those games where a player

Hughes’ big night equals big win for Cavs

After a sluggish start the Cavaliers gained ground on the Orlando Magic with a 118-111 win on the road. LeBron James nearly had himself another triple-double, with 29 points, 10 assists and 7 boards. James was not the star of this game however. Larry Hughes had his best night as a Cavalier, pouring in 40

02/11 Morning Minute: AI, DA, and CC

Could this portion of the schedule be catching up to our Cavaliers?  Smack in the middle of their four-in-five run, the Cavs simply fell flat on their collective face last night, failing to top 20 points in either of the final two periods.  LeBron did his part (30 points in 33 minutes), but Larry Hughes

02/09 Morning Minute: Who Is This Guy?

Please answer this question. Who was that guy wearing the Ira Newble jersey last night? Slashing, hitting the boards, actually finishing strong? While I wish he would produce like this more often, given the injures to the Cavaliers this week, we needed a game like this out of him – and we needed it badly.

I’ll Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

Another one bites the dust…and that’s not good

This is getting ridiculous. Tonight Cavs guard Daniel Gibson left the game with a reported hamstring injury. Already without the services of Pavlovic, Varejao, and Gooden the Cavaliers had no chance against the Rockets, and fell 92-77. LeBron James played well, scoring 32 points and adding 6 assists to go with 7 rebounds. He shot
