Has the Ball family become the Kardashian family of the NBA?
The Cleveland Cavaliers are limping to the merciful end of this frustrating regular season. All year, Cleveland has insisted that they don’t care about the regular season and that they will be fine when the playoffs arrive. We’re about to find out if they’re right.
With the way their season ended in mid-June — within a few lucky bounces and a bad performance from healthy eventual champion Golden State Warriors — it’s hard to remember where the Cleveland Cavaliers were in early January. That “where” was a bad psychological place, the figurative equivalent of the dark and foreboding forest through which you
Happy Tuesday WFNY! As I was driving in to work this morning, I was surprised by how light the traffic was. I don’t normally have too much traffic to deal with, as I leave before the worst of it. But even relative to my normal traffic, it was really light this morning. It wasn’t until
What a night for Cleveland sports. First, Kyrie Irving came back for the Cavaliers. Then, while the game was going on, the Indians made what appears to be a stellar trade. And then, just for good measure, the Cavaliers beat the Lakers. It was evident from the beginning just how much Irving was missed. Kyrie
Life without Kyrie Irving has not been fun. It was hard. How hard? The Cleveland Cavaliers (4-17, 13th in the East) went 2-9 without him. Sure, the Cavaliers are 2-8 with him, so there’s no evidence of the team being worse without him. But if you watched the 11 games he missed, you know the
Happy NBA Season Eve everyone! Tomorrow the NBA season kicks off with a TNT double header featuring prime matchups between the Celtics and Heat, and the Mavericks and Lakers. But there is one other game tomorrow night, and it’s the most anticipated and sure to be the most watched game of the three. That’s right,
For the past several years, the great Boston Celtics blog CelticsBlog.com has hosted an annual NBA Bloggers Preview. Basically, every day leading up to the start of the season, one team is previewed by some of the best writers on their team blogs, and then once the division is done, we will post the links
There’s a story I remember from my childhood. It involves a man who is living in his house on the bank of a river. One day, a storm begins to build up strength and the rains begin to pour down. The newscaster on TV interrupts programming to warn those living on the river to evacuate
According to NBA sources, the Cleveland Cavaliers are once again thought to be involved in a potential Dwight Howard trade. This time, the Cavaliers would theoretically be landing Lakers big man Andrew Bynum. According to ESPN.com’s Ric Bucher: The Cavaliers would land Lakers center Andrew Bynum for a package of draft picks and veteran power forward Anderson Varejao,
It’s funny to be sitting here a day before the NBA trade deadline and thinking about how a Cleveland trade would impact their own playoff hopes. It’s true, though. That is the Cleveland Cavaliers’ reality. As of today, Cleveland is 1 game behind the Milwaukee Bucks for the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference. I
March 15th is the trade deadline in the NBA this year. As Cleveland fans, we are quite used to rumors and speculation throughout the month of February. The Cavaliers have been heavy players at the deadline for a number of years. In fact, it would seem strange if the Cavaliers weren’t involved in trade discussions.
The first half of the NBA season is now complete for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They now will enjoy a nice 5 day break (except for Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson, who will partake in some of the festivities in Orlando) for the All-Star Break. When they come back next Tuesday, they will play two games
Dan Gilbert wasn’t the only owner who supported David Stern’s veto on the deal between the Lakers, Rockets and Hornets previously designed to send Chris Paul to Los Angeles. His email, seemingly a private one addressed to David Stern, was the only one that leaked publicly but he wasn’t alone in his position. We can
In yesterday’s “While We’re Waiting”, Rick posted a link to an article by Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico in which he laid out the case for why current Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott would be a prime candidate for the Los Angeles Lakers’ likely vacant coaching seat. He also said something that probably made
Yep, it’s that time of year again already. Once again, CleticsBlog are hosting the annual Blogger Previews for every team in the NBA. How this works is simple, every day a certain NBA team is up and bloggers who write about said team will offer their previews for that team in the upcoming season. Then,
As the free agency rumor season continues, the Cavaliers coaching rumor season is also relatedly running full force. After Danny Ferry’s resignation it appears that Dan Gilbert might just be intent on hiring a college coach, namely Tom Izzo. Now a lot of people are especially wary of college coaches making the jump from the
Los Angeles Lakers (32-9) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (32-11) Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH Thursday, January 21, 2010 8:00 PM EST TNT, FSOH/WTAM I’ll take the blame for this one. I just mentioned the other day to a friend of mine that I was concerned that the Cavaliers have been remarkably healthy for the most part
It’s no secret that Shaquille O’Neal has played on an abundance of great teams. Arguably one of the three best centers of all time, the Big Whatever has been in the playoffs in every season of his career except last year when the Suns fell short. He has played in the NBA Finals six times (one with
Perhaps they should stick to following Paris Hilton around like sad little dogs… Today this appeared on TMZ’s site. I’m not going to say that wearing your own shirt is cool, but TMZ’s comment: For the record — you won’t see Kobe Bryant wearing a shirt with his individual accomplishments plastered on the front of
