SportsLine Spreading Innuendo Again

National Media Continues To Create Stories From Lies Perhaps you’re familiar with Gregg Doyel, perhaps you’re not. Either way, I am playing right into his hand. He’s little more than SportsLine’s version of Howard Stern…a shock jock with a laptop. He falls into this continuing trend that I find disturbing. What trend? The trend of

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

Picks Of The Week – February 11, 2008 Well, Matt didn’t believe me that he was nuts last week, and now he doesn’t believe me again that this game has disaster written all over it for the Cavaliers. Obviously it’s a large spread, but when you look at the history of teams on the road

Cavaliers Preview Game #51

Cleveland Cavaliers (28-22) vs Orlando Magic (32-20) Amway Arena, Orlando, FL Monday, February 11, 2008 7:00 PM EST FSN OH/WTAM This is truly an unfortunate time for the Cavaliers to be injured. It’s hard enough playing back-to-back games when the first game is at home and the second is on the road, but when you

Least Valuable Player

Why do we watch the Pro Bowl? It certainly isn’t riveting television. There is very little drama to the game. Fans of good defense have nothing to do for those 3 hours. So why watch? The answer for me, and I’m guessing several of you is to watch my favorite teams’ players. This was the

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

02/10 (Not-so) Morning Minute: Cribbs to the Crib

Yes, today is the day of the Pro Bowl.  Yes, I know that Brett Frave and Tom Brady aren’t playing.  But frankly, I don’t care.  Because Braylon Edwards, Joshua Cribbs, Joe Thomas, Ryan Pontbriand and Derek Anderson are.  I know that the game has lost its luster over the years, but as a Cleveland fan

File this one under…Are You Serious?

Have I ever mentioned that I don’t really care for Boston fans? I have huh? Ok, just checking. Well it appears that a growing number of Internet savvy Patriot fans are a bit upset about the Super Bowl. Not that they lost. Not that a perfect season was ruined. But that the Giants, and the

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.

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

Wait, Cleveland Could Have Had Marion?

A good friend of mine forwarded me a piece from today’s chat with ESPN’s Chad Ford (subscription required).  Within it, Ford was apparently discussing the Cleveland Cavaliers and their current rank amongst the NBA as well as the East.  And then he said this… The Cavs are doing well in a bad conference. I still think

Could Romeo Crennel Be Suspended?

Like most fans that were thrilled to see the New England Patriots lose the Super Bowl, I had also been pretty keen on the idea of this whole “Spygate” issue dating back to 2001. That was at least until today, when a post by Michael David Smith got me thinking. If all [of “Spygate”] is
