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 […]

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 The NBA rescinded Howard’s 6th technical foul (one which he clearly deserved) by stating […]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 […]

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 […]

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

Top three key players for each team, and their total playoff minutes played…..

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 […]
