What Have We Learned During “LeBron-a-Palooza”?

Until the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinal series between Boston and Cleveland, I had always been very impressed not only with LeBron James’ obvious athletic gifts but also with his work ethic and the way that he seemed to be mature beyond his years. James seemed to “get it”: James avoided off court trouble, did not […]

Cavs Fire Mike Brown After Best Five Year Run in Franchise History

The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially fired Coach Mike Brown, an action that surprises no one and certainly delights some misguided fans and media members—the same people, I suspect, who called for Bill Belichick’s head a decade and a half ago. Defense wins championships in pro sports but defensive-minded coaches generally do not “win” press conferences, […]

What is Wrong With the Cavs?

Entering this year’s playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers seemed to be primed for success while the aging Boston Celtics had been little better than a .500 team for the greater portion of the regular season (27-24 in the final 51 games). The Cavs were nearly unbeatable at home while the Celtics were uncharacteristically vulnerable in Boston […]

LeBron Comes Up Empty as Celtics Obliterate Cavaliers in Cleveland

Ray Allen scored 25 points to pace six Celtics in double figures as the Boston Celtics dealt the Cleveland Cavaliers their worst home playoff loss in franchise history, 120-88. A stunned sellout crowd of 20,562 fans booed two-time regular season MVP LeBron James and the other Cavaliers and then left en masse long before the […]

Reloaded Cavs Seek Revenge Against Aging Celtics

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics each cruised through the first round of the playoffs with 4-1 victories over Chicago and Miami respectively, setting up a rematch of their classic seven game 2008 Eastern Conference semifinals duel—but both teams have made significant personnel changes in the past two years. Cleveland’s 2008 playoff rotation (the top […]

Cavs Will Battle Bulls in the Playoffs for the First Time Since the Michael Jordan Era

The Cleveland Cavaliers began the 2009 playoffs by sweeping the Detroit Pistons, a Central Division rival who they had faced in two competitive playoff series in 2006 and 2007; this year, the Cavs’ postseason journey also starts with a battle against a Central Division foe—the Chicago Bulls, a franchise that tormented the Cavs by eliminating […]

With Big Z Back in the Fold, Cavs Prepare for Championship Run

The Cleveland Cavaliers have lapped the field in the race for homecourt advantage throughout the 2010 NBA Playoffs; the Cavs have just nine games remaining—six of which will be played at home—and currently are ahead of the L.A. Lakers by three games in the loss column. The Cavs lead the Orlando Magic by six games […]

LeBron James had 30 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, three blocked shots and two steals as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Boston Celtics 104-93. Although James was highly productive, he had plenty of help, too: Anderson Varejao contributed 17 points and 10 rebounds off of the bench, Antawn Jamison added 15 points and 12 rebounds […]

O’Neal Injury Could Imperil Cavs’ Championship Hopes

Don’t be fooled by Cleveland’s 124-93 rout of the hapless New York Knicks—the Cavs will miss Shaquille O’Neal during his six to eight week absence as he recovers from thumb surgery and the Cavs very much need to sign Zydrunas Ilgauskas as soon as they are permitted to do so by league rules. “Small ball” […]

Jamison Could be Final Championship Piece–If Big Z Rejoins Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired the proverbial “stretch 4”—i.e., power forward who can shoot jumpers and/or create his own scoring opportunities—that they have been seeking (and their fans have been dreaming about) for quite some time: as part of a three team deal involving the Washington Wizards and L.A. Clippers, Antawn Jamison will join the […]
