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 a new-look roster, Tyronn Lue has the opportunity to experiment with plenty of different rotations and lineups. Starting Jae Crowder and moving Kevin Love to center will be his first test, and it seems to be one that he will ace.
After all of the changes that have taken place this offseason for the Cavs, they can now start to focus on the 2017-18 season. With Media Day less than a week away, plenty of questions have already been raised about the new-look Cavs. But two things seem certain come October 17: Tristan Thompson will be the starting center and Kevin Love will have a bigger role on offense.
Chopz joins Jeff Nomina on the WFNY YT Channel to talk all things Cleveland Cavaliers including the landscape of the Eastern Conference.
Jae Crowder can guard a number of positions on defense and find ways to contribute without needing the ball in his hands offensively. Tyronn Lue is already working on ways for the Cavs to utilize his versatility on both sides of the floor this season. Whether it means using a small or big lineup, Crowder will allow Lue to take some of the pressure off LeBron James as well.
David Griffin may no longer be the Cavs general manager, but he’s happy for Koby Altman and believes he pulled off one heckuva deal with the Celtics to acquire three players and what could be a top-3 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Eight days after the Cavs and Celtics agreed to a blockbuster deal that included Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas, the trade seems to be in a stalemate. But, the Cavs don’t seem to be seeking any additional top players or significant picks due to Isaiah Thomas’ significant hip injury, which seems to be holding up the deal.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics trade swapping Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas has been held up as the Cavaliers are asking for more after developing concerns with IT’s hip. Or are they just being greedy?
Kyrie Irving is forever the one who hit The Shot for the Cleveland Cavaliers and sometimes it is difficult to let a player go.
The Cavs have traded point guard Kyrie Irving to their Eastern Conference rival.
How is such an average-seeming team so good?
Boston Celtics forward says he is hopeful for an apology from Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith
Dwight Howard has nothing to do with Cleveland sports and due to the fact that his team, the Houston Rockets, trails Golden State 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, he probably won’t for this season. That said, Dwight Howard was involved in a play against Andrew Bogut that was eerily similar to the one that
I have no problem with how the Boston Celtics played in their first round series against the Cavaliers. Yes, they were dirty. Yes, they were underhanded. Yes, Kelly Olynyk yanked Kevin Love’s shoulder out of its socket and Isaiah Thomas grabbed at an inbounds pass while it was still in LeBron James’ hands. Yes, Jae Crowder, he
Charles Oakley made a living out of it. Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman, Shaquille O’Neal—hell, even Zydrunas Ilgauskas, to a point—all played the role of Enforcer. When Oakley was setting screens for Michael Jordan, the message was clear that Cleveland native was there for one reason: To protect his team’s star. When LeBron James walked off
Andrew and Craig discuss the Boston Celtics losing in four games to the Cavaliers and how much it really cost them. The Cavaliers did get the sweep, but somehow managed to leave fans feeling badly after completing said sweep. Kevin Love’s shoulder and the prospect of missing one game Kelly Olinyk did not try to
The third episode of the playoffs saw me once again alongside John Anderson of WKYC to talk about the Cavaliers’ victory over the Celtics. At this point, I’ve stopped giving credit to the Cavaliers instead taking it for myself as a member of this new web show for WKYC. I’m half kidding of course. Anyway,
Happy Friday WFNY! It’s the morning after another Cavaliers playoff win. I know you’re feeling good about that. Let’s go! The Cavs don’t disappoint in game three… After the Cavaliers beat the Celtics for a third straight time to begin the 2015 NBA playoffs, LeBron told Allie Clifton after the game that the team hadn’t
With the Sweet 16 upon us and the end of the NBA season rapidly approaching (didn’t it seem like this season last like a month?), this will be your (and NBA scouts for that matter) last few chances to see some of the top prospects play real competition. I have never been a “workout” guy.
