I’m sure you read the ESPN articles leading up to last night’s game comparing Kobe with LeBron. Last night when the chalk cleared, LeBron was standing on top. The Cavs, lead by LeBron James, rebounded from a terrible game against the Knicks on Wednesday with a gritty effort against the Lakers. It was a excellent
It took him 50 minutes of playing time, but Lebron James finally put the game out of reach when his second free throw found the bottom of the net with :14 seconds to go. James finished with 31 points, but had a rough shooting night, hitting only 10 of 25 shots, and none of his
King James Returns To Lift Cavs To Much Needed Victory This team is getting close to being healthy. Last night marked the return of LeBron James (from injury) and Anderson Varejao (from foolishness), and saw the continued inspired play from Larry Hughes (I can’t believe I just said that). The newly uplifted team responded in
When we signed Larry Hughes back in ’05, this was the kind of performance we hoped to see. This one was over before it started. Actually, it wasn’t over until the Cavs’ trio of LeBron James, Larry Hughes and Andy Varejao took the court with 6 minutes to go in the first quarter. Then the
Daniel Gibson Becomes The Latest To Miss Time? For sure, this has been the most frustrating Cavaliers season of the LeBron Era. Decimated by injuries and foolish holdouts, the team is in the midst of a 6 game losing streak, with a record of 9-12, and a 4th place position in their own division. For
Can We Just Give The Heisman To LeBron? Ok, I know this isn’t a college sports blog, but some stories can’t be passed up. The Heisman votes are in, and the finalists have been invited to New York for the festivities. The 4 finalists for this year’s award are Hawaii’s Colt Brennan, Missouri’s Chase Daniel,
Pat saw this report today and passed it along to me. Very interesting. The original report comes from Yahoo Sports. The article insinuates that Jason Kidd, who didn’t play in New Jersey’s game yesterday against the Knicks, sat out not because of a headache as is being reported, but because he is angry with management
From Fortune Slams To Varejao Quotes While LeBron is still sitting out with a sprained finger, those of us going through LBJ withdrawal can get our fix by checking out the latest issue of Fortune Magazine. The article is a fascinating read, as it discusses LeBron, Inc CEO Maverick Carter, Warren Buffett, and Nike, amongst
I got to watch the Cavs last night for the first time since LeBron’s injury. It will be my last until he returns. Do you have any friends that don’t believe LeBron should be the MVP, or perhaps think for some reason he is over-rated? I have the solution. Make them watch this game a
If Only My Portugese Was Better I have not seen this reported anywhere else, so I’m not sure how valid this is. Also, it’s being reported in Portugese, so I ran it through Google’s translator. According to this story, however, Anderson Varejao has signed a 3 year deal with the Charlotte Bobcats. If this is
Team Falters, Varejao Lounges People sometimes like to say ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same’. Unfortunately, when things don’t change, they have a funny way of still staying exactly the same. Imagine that. Last night, the Cavaliers once again displayed a simply pathetic defensive performance and even yet another superhuman performance
Big Z Logging Big Minutes….But Is This A Problem For The Future? People who have been following the NBA closely this season know that there’s a giant secret in the Association this year. Quietly, and under the radar, Cavaliers’ center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is quietly having one of, if not the, best seasons of his career.
Cavaliers’ Guard Out A Month With Bruise And no, I’m not talking about his bruised ego, his bruised confidence, or any other psyches that Larry Hughes may have injured in his short time with Cleveland. But Brian Windhorst reported today that Larry Hughes is expected to miss about a month with a bruised left leg.
This by the way is not a foul in the NBA. The refs determined that this was a jump ball. Really? Jump ball? I can see that Turkoglu is in fact touching the ball. I’ll give you that. Seems to me that the guy draping himself over LeBron with a knee in his back might
6 games in 9 days caught up to the Cavs last night, who simply ran out of gas. After a good win against the Clippers, the Cavs were spent when they arrived in Denver. Obviously the Nuggets played well. Allen Iverson was shooting the roof off the building, Carmelo got his and J.R. Smith came
First Look At New Book About LeBron Terry Pluto, formerly of the Akron Beacon-Journal and currently with the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Brian Windhorst, current beat writer for the Akron Beacon-Journal, have teamed up to write what looks to be a quite insightful book that looks into the becoming of LeBron James and his impact
LeBron James had a triple-double by the third quarter. It wasn’t enough to beat the Jazz. Seriously. James had 32 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists. Cavs lose 103-101. We’ll give Ilgauskas a pass, he had 18 and 14. He certainly did his job again. Oh yeah, he had 4 blocks to go with that.
LeBron’s line from last night- 24 points on 9 of 16 shooting, 14 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 blocked shots in 42 minutes. He was hit in the face and had to receive treatment in the locker room in the first half. Despite LeBron’s big night, and Daniel Gibson’s hot shooting, the Cavs nearly blew that
Talkin’ Contracts As I’m sitting here watching the Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors tonight, I decided now would be a good time to talk about a few issues I’ve been meaning to get to lately but have been unable to due to a busy work schedule in the past week. The first thing
The Sky Is Not Falling… …Or is it? It’s hard to imagine how a season could get off to a worse start. Remember that stellar defense that carried the team through the playoffs last season? That was gone. Remember that new offense we’ve been hearing about all off season? That didn’t show up. Remember that
