Browns

The biggest debate in Ohio

Sorry Obama and Hillary, you don’t even have a chance here. The biggest debate in Ohio rages among Browns’ fans about the quarterback position. You won’t hear the ‘candidates’ themselves firing salvos at each other, but their fans certainly will. Check out any of the Cleveland message boards and see for yourself. The board I

Did Danny Ferry See This Coming?

  Mike may not be wearing a jersey for quite a whileMike Miller to miss more time? Heading in to the NBA trade deadline, us folks here at Waiting For Next Year gave our opinion on several rumors, only to wind up with the deal which brought us a bolstered front court as well as

Ahhh Spring!

While the Cavaliers have warmed up sports talk lately, Northern Ohio could use a blast of spring and a return of the boys of summer. Yesterday the Indians had their first full-squad scrimmage, and it appears the hitters had their way with the pitchers. Sheldon Ocker had a nice breakdown of the “game”. Wouldn’t you know that

02/27 Morning Minute: Redd Light

A few days ago, I was appreciative of the fact that three of our (then) next four games were against opponents that would allow us to get a feel for our new lineup.  And not that I’m making excuses, but I’m sure no one was counting on Zydrunas Ilgauskas missing last night’s game against the

Learning Curve

Each time the new Cavaliers take the floor it is going to be a learning experience. The players are learning how to play with each other, the coaches are learning what combinations work and which ones don’t, and Cleveland fans are learning what the new players are capable of. First the recap- The Bucks officially

Hindsight In The Backcourt?

Cassell Buyout to Help the Celtics? There is no denying the fact that the Cavaliers have been hurting at the point guard slot since Andre Miller was dealt to the Clippers for the “what could have been” platter of Darius Miles and Harold Jamison back in 2002.  How coincidental that a point guard could be

Getting Better, One Player At A Time

Cavaliers Forward Set To Return Tonight Anderson Varejao, the Cavaliers forward who has been out since January 27th with a sprained ankle, will be back tonight barring a setback at shoot around, according to the Akron Beacon Journal’s Brian Windhorst. Meanwhile, center Zydrunas Ilgauskas is suffering from a cold and is now listed as questionable

02/26 Morning Minute: Crickets…

You know it is a slow day in Cleveland sports when two of the top stories regard “reunions.”  Apparently, Tribe players Ryan Garko and Ben Francisco attended the same high school, while Delonte West is rejoined with a former college teammate in Dwayne Jones.  Apparently, West and Jones were quite the pranksters… One of their

02/25 Morning Minute: Well, That Wasn’t So Bad

It isn’t every day that a Sunday evening game against the Grizzlies would draw as much scrutiny as yesterday’s contest did, but thankfully for those watching at home (as well as those in attendance), the result was a favorable one.  As Rick already discussed, there is plenty of things to be happy about.  There are

Game 1 in the bag…

Let’s get this out of the way first. The Memphis Grizzlies are not a good basketball team. Since trading Pau Gasol for spare parts and change, the Grizzlies are 1-10. Tonight they played without scorer Mike Miller. This would be another team that the 8-man Cavaliers might have beaten. That being said, this was a

02/24 Morning Minute: Today’s The Day…

… where we get to see what the future holds. As discussed earlier, Danny Ferry did his job, now the rest is in the hands of Mike Brown. I share the same sentiments in that tonight’s game should feature the starting lineup of West, Szczerbiak, James, Wallace and Ilgauskas. In fact, if only for the

Good Morning Mike Brown…

That was a great win last night huh coach? LeBron, Damon Jones, Zydrunas, Devin Brown, heck even Eric Snow gave you everything they had. It helps that Washington wasn’t making the extra pass, but a great team effort none the less. Now you have some work to do. All of Cleveland will be watching Sunday

 Wow.  What a night to be away from the computer.  In hindsight, it may have been for the better, as it allowed for some digestion of everything that went on with the Cavaliers (and Browns!!) in the last 24 hours. Earlier this week, I mentioned all of the D-named players on our roster without consideration

Apologies and Analysis

Early Reflections On The Cavaliers “Big” Trade First things first, I’m a man of my word. I said earlier today that if the Cavaliers actually pulled off a trade, I would publicly apologize to Brian Windhorst for doubting his early reports on the trade. Well, the trade rumor was legit, and so here we are.

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.
