Nick Carrabine is back on The Nail as the guys discuss what has happened to J.R. Smith, Isaiah Thomas’ fit and whether he’s playable against Golden State, and whether Ty Lue is getting the most out of this Cavs roster.
With the NBA trade deadline moved up and less teams likely to sell off parts, these are the most likely names we’ll be hearing over the next three weeks.
Although he hasn’t been part of it the last three seasons, Thomas has been able to watch the rivalry between the Cavs and Warriors be born from afar. Unfortunately for him, the point guard was forced to watch the first matchup between the two on Christmas Day less than a month ago while continuing to recover from his hip injury, although this time he was able to watch from the sidelines, rather than on his television in Boston. Monday night, he will have the opportunity to take part in the rivalry for the first time, a moment that he is excited for even though he believes it’s “just another game”.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are only 35 games into the season so they have plenty of time to figure out their best lineups and rotations, but right now, playing Channing Frye over Tristan Thompson would be the right move. Frye makes the team (and second unit) better both offensively and (very surprisingly) defensively.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have known to be primarily wine and gold in recent memory. While Nike’s fourth alternate jersey, the City Edition, is much different than the other three and doesn’t include much wine and gold, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad jersey. It’s a nice change and one that Cavs fans should like.
Cavs-Warriors, LeBron-Harden, and a little bit of Bitcoin talk all crammed into the latest “Nail in the Coffin” podcast at WFNY.
100 episodes is a ton and WFNY is happy the Nail in the Coffin podcast released their century mark recording on our pages. Enjoy the discussion on the Cleveland Browns and Cavs within.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been a frustrating team this season, no question. But inside those frustrating games lie all the great moments we might be missing.
One of the Cavaliers biggest flaws this season has been their rebounding, especially with Tristan Thompson sidelined with a left calf strain. Although they are only 13 games into the season, Cleveland seems to be interested in center Greg Monroe, who was recently traded from the Bucks to the Suns. The biggest holdup though could be his $17.9 million salary.
The Cleveland Browns are an absolute mess. Somehow, that doesn’t even begin to describe just how far the franchise has fallen.
After John Wall and Bradley Beal claimed that the Wizards were the best team in the East and that the Cavs tanked last season so they wouldn’t have to play Washington early in the playoffs, LeBron James put the Cavs on his back and had a career game Friday night. It was not only a statement game for No. 23 and the wine and gold, but James may have found a new facet of his game on offense as well.
With a 3-5 record and having lost four straight, many Cavs fans have already started freaking out about what’s wrong with their team. Dwyane Wade is here to remind you that everything will be just fine in the end after he and the Cavs figure it out.
Josh talks about how injuries suck, awesomeness of Taylor Swift, and Iowa’s “The Wave” in Friday morning’s WWW.
It’s only been five games this season, but J.R. Smith is off to the worst start of his career by a wide margin. Here’s to hoping he works things out, finds his groove, and gives the Cavs a jolt of offense to ease some of the burden off of LeBron James.
Jeff Nomina captures the important notes on the Cleveland Cavaliers first week of the 2017-2018 season on the WFNY YouTube channel.
There are plenty of good players on this team, and as the season goes, they should find their way on top.
Jeff Nomina plus the Cleveland Cavaliers opening night plus Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics in town has led to some excitement. Enjoy.
Kyrie Irving makes his debut with his new team, the Boston Celtics, in the home of his old team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. How will fans react to Kyrie and what will his legacy in Cleveland ultimately be?
