Pair of Buckeyes Get Brinks Trucks for Fourth of July

There was a ton of money thrown around to NBA players on the first day of free agency in 2016. A pair of former Thad Matta players were involved in the free agent frenzy. Pair of Buckeyes Get Brinks Trucks for Fourth of July Former Buckeye point guard Mike Conley agreed to stay with the Memphis […]

Silver Bullet Points to Vacation

Salutations from our nation’s 48th state, where I currently find myself vacating on the same road that I live by several hours to the west. Yup, this is as close to Rich Rod as I’ll ever get… probably for the best.  Knowing that we were headed this way the wife let me plan our trip […]

Another 'Sully' in Beantown: Jared Sullinger to Celtics

With the 21st pick in this evenings’ NBA draft, former Buckeye Jared Sullinger was informed that he would be headed to one of the most legendary franchises in basketball when he was drafted by the Eastern Conference’s Boston Celtics. The two year star at Ohio State saw the end of a challenging week with the […]

NBA Playoffs begin in three days

Back when this site was on the SBNation network, we made a concerted effort to stick to all things Buckeyes, and not write about other teams, college or pro. The network had blogs from just about every team/sport out there, so we thought that writing about topics that weren’t related to Ohio State would be […]

Are you ready? Cavaliers begin their quest….now!

10:16pm – Winding it down.  Stretches of success, stretches of failure.  This was a playoff game without the playoff atmosphere. 10:12pm – Cavs going to lose their opening game for the second year in a row to Boston, have lost 5 of the 7 openers in LeBron James era.  Have lost at least two of […]


The Boston Celtics have used their first pick in the 2009 NBA draft to select Michael Jackson F (Neverland).   Hope this works out for them.

It's Orlando. Bring it.

There are two teams in the NBA that have a winning record against the Cleveland Cavaliers this season. Both of them are still alive. I’m fine with that, I want to take them both apart during this drive for the trophy. Tonight, the Orlando Magic earned their shot to be humiliated on National TV. They […]

Re-energizing while the others wear out

Yesterday I posted a quick blurb about the Cavaliers and their fresh legs, but I think I need to go into a little bit more detail now. A lot has been made about the Cavs potential for being “rusty” going into the next round of the playoffs, especially since they so quickly dispatched the Atlanta […]

Fresh legs will be key in the Eastern Finals…..

Top three key players for each team, and their total playoff minutes played….. BOSTON Ray Allen – 442 minutes played Paul Pierce – 437 minutes played Rajon Rondo – 472 minutes played ORLANDO Dwight Howard – 340 minutes played Hedo Turkoglu – 372 minutes played Rashard Lewis – 400 minutes played CLEVELAND LeBron James – […]

Day off, but plenty to do still

The front page of your local sports page probably has a nice picture of LeBron James today, doing something that you’ll never do ever.  It probably has a headline about a blowout win and most of the story is about LBJ and how he took over another game and it was unbelieveable. Yeah, The BBC […]

Cavs win big, push to 3-0 lead

Prior to tonight’s game, I said the following to my friends and family; “If the Cavaliers are going to lose a game in this series, it’ll be tonight.  I don’t think they will lose, but if any game will go against us, this is it.” I honestly thought that Atlanta would come out energized and […]

Well-rested and dominating

Heading into the second-round series with Atlanta, a lot was said about the Cavaliers’ potential for being rusty.  An 8-day layover between games was bound to hurt, and with the Hawks coming off their longer series, it was possible that momentum would carry Atlanta to a victory in Game 1 or even Game 2. Game […]

Three men with the keys to the NBA Championship

As I watched last night’s NBA Playoff games, I couldn’t help but notice some very interesting similarities.  The Celtics played like crap and the Lakers had no fire.  But it wasn’t until I looked at the box score did I realize why those two games ended the way they did. Rajon Rondo had a horrible-but-somehow-not […]

Finding motivation for….Atlanta???

Tonight, the Cleveland Cavaliers will begin their second-round series of the NBA Playoffs.  All season long has been a quest, and this is the next step for the wine and gold.  I have no doubts that this team will be ready and focused as they take the series from Atlanta. But as tipoff approaches, I’ve […]
