Friday’s roster…ugh

  Ladies and gentlemen…the bench! The Cavs will not have their new toys in time to play against the Wizards on Friday, nor will they have their recently discarded toys. Of course, they are still battling injuries as well. So who in the world is left to play? Well there’s LeBron James and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.

Latest Trade Rumors

Trade Rumors Supposedly Involve Shawn Marion Following all this trade talk has been a bit of a whirlwind. As I promised last night, I have been keeping my eyes peeled and my ears open today. First, Brian Windhorst released his latest blog post about the trade rumors, saying, “Woke up this morning to an explosion

Lost in the bustle of possible trades…

The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Browns are very close to a deal with Jamal Lewis. The deal is reportedly for two years with an option for a third. Browns GM Phil Savage told a local radio show that he expects this deal to be completed within 24 hours. That is certainly good news for

Not So Fast, Big Man

While digging through some recent blurbs regarding Cleveland Sports, with many thanks to reader And One, I came across Brian Windhorst’s piece over at the Akron Beacon-Journal regarding Zydrunas Ilgauskas.  As you already know, Big Z has had some foot injuries in his past – some of epic proportions – that have kept him at bay.  Thankfully,

02/21 Morning Minute: Second Time’s A Charm

If these triple-doubles keep rolling in, one is bound to lead to a win.  While a win over Houston would have been nice, beating a conference rival in Indiana is just what we needed to get back on track after a sub-par finish before the All-Star break.  James put up 31, 14 and 12, but the

The Cavs Trade Rumors Continue

Now, while I realize that Chad Ford is the same guy that rumored Larry Brown to be locked and loaded to coach the Cavaliers not all to long ago, his latest bit has me at least a little intrigued. “The deal, as described to me by a player agent, would send Miller, [Brian] Cardinal and

02/20 Morning Minute: When a Triple-Double Isn’t Enough

Granted, the team simply did not play well in last night’s game against Houston, but when your leader goes for 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists and you still lose, it is safe to say that something is wrong.  Combining a sluggish second quarter with a 38 percent clip from the floor, and that’s

02/19 Morning Minute: Where Can I Sign?

Well, it looks like Jason Kidd is heading to Dallas after all.  All it took was a different set of veterans – two veterans that have neither a no-trade clause nor a big mouth.  In fact, all it took was a vet that wasn’t even playing at the time.  If you ask me, Keith Van Horn

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

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.

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

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

02/13 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
