Wait, where was I when that happened?

Oh, yeah…I was out of town and turned off my cell phone.  Tuesday I took a trip to Cedar Point and Wednesday I was in Pittsburgh for a concert, so I missed the news about the Cavaliers. The Cleveland Cavs signed Tony Parker to a contract.  Let’s see what Eva Longoria says about having to […]

The Cavs make a new Shaquisition!

Yeah, it’s true….what was reported on for weeks has become a reality. Shaq is a Cleveland Cavalier. We got him for Ben Wallace (who was retiring), Sasha Pavlovic (our 8th man on the bench), the Cavs 2nd round draft pick (the 46th pick) and some money (500 thousand dollars).  HELL of a deal! Think of […]

Shaq may be in Cavaliers uniform soon

The Cleveland Cavaliers may be making a trade very soon, and the deal would be huge.  The Cavs are in talks with Phoenix to trade for Shaquille O’Neal in exchange for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic.  ESPN News has been all over this story today, with a few twists to it. Executives from both teams […]

Well…..dammit. Now what?

Yeah, I’ve been avoiding writing this because I was just too irritated, but the time has come to sit down and begin planning for the ’09-’10 Cavaliers season (and beyond). Frankly, the discussion about Game 6 has been played out already.  We had our runs at it and Orlando just had everything working for them […]

Relaxed, ready, and resolute

I’ve been to six Cavalier games this year, and have watched 70+ more.  At this point, I’ve feel like I’ve reached the point that I can tell what LeBron’s going to do by his body language at the top of the key. Last weekend, I went to Game 2 with my brother and his wife […]

Victory! Shifting the pressure

The Cleveland Cavaliers finally figured out how to beat Orlando last night. A swarming perimeter defense and keeping Dwight Howard off the glass were both key elements early and late as the Cavaliers won by double-digits 112-102 Thursday night. Oh, and getting a triple-double from a guy named LeBron.  That was big too.  James had […]

Tonight's "must-win"

Yesterday, I posted my thoughts about how the Cavaliers can win this series, and it included badgering Dwight Howard to get him his 7th technical foul and an automatic one-game suspension. Then the NBA decided to protect one of its’ stars. The NBA rescinded Howard’s 6th technical foul (one which he clearly deserved) by stating […]

Is it over? No, but it's bad

Yeah, it’s bleak right now. We’ve played well enough to win but are still down 3-1. Is it over? Hell no. Here’s why. 1) We’re playing at home Thursday night in Game 5. Say what you will about the past week of basketball, but there is no house in the NBA that is tougher to […]

Inside The Q after the shot

I actually forgot I had videotaped this.  In all the excitement, my mind was racing and I somehow got my camera out to record the scene at Quicken Loans Arena after LeBron hit his game-winning three-pointer. Something that people at home might not know…..the basket wasn’t declared official for about two minutes after it went […]

The greatest moment in Cleveland sports history?

By now you’ve seen it several hundred times.  LeBron James burying a buzzer-beating three-point shot to win Game 2 and save the Cavaliers season. The BBC and many others have quickly labeled it as “The Greatest Moment In Cleveland Sports History”. But is it truly? I’ve spent 36 hours, since the shot went through the […]

The general reaction of an entire state

This video pretty much epitomizes exactly what the entire state of Ohio went through from 11:30 to 11:32 last night. That’s an on-air reaction to The Shot.  Although I am kinda pissed at Leon Bibb for throwing in the towel so quickly, it is true that he was merely voicing what a lot of us […]

To be a witness

I’m still in shock. I was in Section 220 at The Q Friday night, and I can’t believe what I saw.  It may be the single greatest play in Cleveland sports history. LeBron James buries a three-pointer as the buzzer sounds, and the Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic 96-95 in amazing fashion. In one second, […]

Tonight is a must-win

That’s all there is to say. Oh, and I’ll be there with a sign that reads “Barkley loves fishsticks”.

The long wait is finally over

Tonight at 830, we can get back to business. The Cleveland Cavaliers will take the floor in the Eastern Conference Finals against Orlando, and it’s not a moment too soon. In the last 24 days, the Cavaliers have only played four games, and the concern is that they are not battle-tested enough for Game 1. […]

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 […]
