Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Kyrie Irving would like to remind you he is very good. And Cavaliers win.

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    You know why the Cleveland and Washington were on the NBA opening night schedule along with marquee teams like the Lakers, Heat and Celtics? Because the NBA likes to showcase its future, and here were John Wall and Kyrie Irving to entertain you… except John Wall is out for a while with a cracked patella.…

  2. Cavs owner Gilbert says he regrets guaranteeing titles. You don’t say.

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    Business Leaders Address Detroit Economic Club

    All too often in life, we are the last ones to come to the realizations that everyone else around us figured out a long time ago. Like that girl we were dating was essentially Linda Blair from the Exorcist. Or we really shouldn’t have let our frustrations lead us to saying something stupid in public.…

  3. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  4. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  5. Cavs pick up option on Byron Scott’s contract

    Oct 24, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a team with an upward trajectory. They have the reigning rookie of the year in Kyrie Irving, Tristian Thompson is making strides in his game, and rookie Dion Waiters looks like he can be a nice player for many years to come. With these young building blocks in place, it comes…

  6. Cavaliers Daniel Gibson out for now with concussion

    Oct 23, 2012, 8:50 PM EDT

    Daniel Gibson

    Veteran Cavaliers shooting guard Daniel Gibson is not suiting up for Tuesday night’s preseason game against Indiana and he could be out a little while. Gibson has been diagnosed with concussion symptoms, the team reports. That means to get back on the court he has to pass a battery of tests and he has to…

  8. Odds on NBA MVP (yes, LeBron leads), Rookie of Year

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    James of the U.S. hugs teammate Durant after their game against Lithuania at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games

    If you don’t have LeBron James, Kevin Durant on top of your “most likely to win the MVP” list you’re doing it wrong. Professional odds makers don’t do it wrong. So when the guys at offshore book Bovada put together a list, you know who is at the top. But the real value is farther…

  9. A year later, the Wolves drafting Williams still doesn’t make sense for anyone

    Oct 13, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    From Canis Hoopus.com: At some point, I think this team is just going to have to face the facts: Williams is a guy who could potentially be a pretty good power forward, on a team that has absolutely no minutes available at power forward. It’s not like the Wolves are oblivious to this sort of…

  12. NBA Preview: Orlando Magic

    Oct 1, 2012, 8:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Last season: Oh, what a tangled web we weave… The Magic won 37 games (to 29 losses) last season because for a stretch in the first half of the season they were one of the top-five teams in the NBA. Dwight Howard was putting up his usual MVP numbers (well, not last season next to…

  13. Report: Cavs keep Varejao on trade block. Shocking, I know.

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics- Game Three

    Do you remember a time when Anderson Varejao wasn’t on the trade block? It seems so long ago that he was going to be a part of the Cavaliers future along with that LeBron guy, but things have changed. Varejao has been on the blocks forever and a day now, it seems. And that hasn’t…

  14. NBA Season Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 27, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Despite the ugly record of 21-45, there was hope last season in Cleveland in the name of Kyrie Irving. The No. 1 draft pick out of Duke was Rookie of the Year and looked like a future All-Star. (Then he carried that over to his performance with the USA Select Team this summer…

  15. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

    Raptors Bargnani reacts to a missed basket against the Nets during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    We wrap up PBT’s Atlantic Division previews this week by going north of the border. Next week we head to the Midwest and the Central Division. Last season: Sure, a 23-43 record isn’t good. But it really wasn’t that bad. Seriously. Sure, the Toronto offense was dreadful and would have been the worst in the…

  19. Maybe LeBron’s agent switch turns out to be a smart move

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 2 - Basketball

    My initial reaction to LeBron James switching agents from Leon Rose and the powerful CAA — the agency that helped bring LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together in Miami — was that it was vintage LeBron. That once again he was tightening his inner circle to lean on close friends, and new agent Rich…

  21. LeBron changing agents, leaving CAA to be repped by friend

    Sep 13, 2012, 2:35 AM EDT

    LeBron James of the 2012 USA Basketball

    Once again, LeBron James is leaning on his childhood friends and moving away from long-time industry professionals to represent him. That hasn’t always led to the best decisions in the past but it is his pattern over the years. LeBron is letting go of Leon Rose and the power of CAA (Creative Artists Agency) —…

  23. Report: Alonzo Gee reaches multi-year deal with Cavaliers

    Sep 10, 2012, 2:41 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    They were reportedly close to a deal nearly a month ago, yet nothing got finalized. The Cavaliers wanted Alonzo Gee back and he actually could have a starting role for them, but as always it came down to money. Apparently the two sides have figured it out, tweets the Plain Dealer. F/G Alonzo Gee, who…
