Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Anderson Varejao breaks cheekbone, to miss time

    Dec 31, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Wednesday night, DeSagana Diop’s elbow accidentally caught Anderson Varejao’s face during the Bobcats win over Cleveland. After the game Varejao’s face swelled and doctors have determined the shot broke Varejao’s cheekbone. The Brazilian will be out at least Saturday’s Cavaliers game against the Bulls, reports Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal (via twitter). Varejao’s…

  2. Dwight Howard mocks LeBron with fake chalk toss in Cleveland

    Dec 29, 2010, 8:10 AM EDT

    howardface

    The Orlando Magic were in Cleveland Tuesday night and Dwight Howard played to the crowd a little before the game by mocking LeBron James‘ famed pregame chalk toss (which LeBron borrowed from Garnett who got it from MJ, but that’s another story). Well, maybe not mocking, but it wasn’t a loving tribute. Before the game…

  3. Cavaliers sign Alonzo Gee

    Dec 28, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    Alonzo Gee

    Everywhere he has landed in the NBA, Alonzo Gee has heard mostly good things about his skills. He has been told he belongs in the NBA. Then he has been cut. Gee was the D-League Rookie of the Year, was a favorite with the Washington Wizards, left for more guaranteed money in San Antonio and…

  4. Byron Scott calls lack of effort around NBA “scary”

    Dec 28, 2010, 12:20 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Byron Scott is old school — he played for Pat Riley and his legendary four-hour practices. He was a scrappy role player on a team filled with competitive people — Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — who only knew one way to play. That was not a team where you gave 50 percent some nights. Plus,…

  5. Lakers’ Devin Ebanks among three sent to D-League around NBA today

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    The trend of NBA teams using the D-League like a real minor league — which it is but wasn’t really used like it — continues with three more NBA players under rookie contracts being sent down for seasoning Monday. The biggest name is Devin Ebanks, the Lakers second-round pick who has played in 12 games…

  6. Cavaliers waive Jawad Williams

    Dec 27, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    Jawad Williams

    Jawad Williams got a chance – the Cavaliers certainly had an opening at the small forward spot. He got about 15 minutes a game but gave the Cavaliers only four points a game on 32.5 percent shooting (and 28 percent from three). That was not good enough and Monday the Cavaliers announced they had waived…

  7. Knicks may be interested in Iguodala, Gibson, Varejao

    Dec 21, 2010, 6:16 PM EDT

    Boobie Gibson

    It’s no secret that the Knicks are hoping and expecting to land Carmelo Anthony before the February 24th trade deadline. However, it looks like the Nuggets may prefer to deal with the Nets, who can offer the Nuggets more than the Knicks can. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, the Knicks aren’t planning to sit…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Cleveland played better against the Heat. That counts for something.

    Dec 16, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    What you missed while wondering if snails can glow in the dark… Amar’e Stoudemire being .02 late and the Celtics winning in MSG is our game of the night. Heat 101, Cavaliers 95: It was the first meeting with the Heat that seemed to throw Cleveland into a funk. This game against the Heat seemed…

  9. Byron Scott calls out the Cavs’ bench

    Dec 13, 2010, 7:52 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    If the Cleveland Cavaliers’ shockingly competitive start seems like a lifetime ago, it’s probably because the Cavs have been killed about a dozen times since their .500 days. Byron Scott is left to confront the realities of his dreadfully limited roster, and though there are a few useful players in the bunch, he’s been forced…

  10. The $20,000 shot of the night

    Dec 13, 2010, 9:15 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Eric Maynor

    Even the fans in Oklahoma City were shooting better than the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were in town to take on the Thunder. Robert Yanders hit a halfcourt shot to win $20,000 at the Thunder game Sunday. The Cavaliers shot 33.8 percent as a team. We’re just sayin’. Looking at my Christmas shopping list, I could…

  11. J.J. Hickson: From savior to trade bait in 30 days

    Dec 12, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When the season started for the Cavaliers, it was all about J. J. Hickson. He was the young buck power forward, physical and tough, who would lead them into the future. He was underhyped, overproducing, basically everything LeBron James wasn’t. Now just a month into the season, Hickson is on the block. The News-Herald reports…

  12. Byron Scott’s wife wants him to yell at officials more

    Dec 9, 2010, 5:43 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is out of the Pat Riley, old-school mode in some ways — hard practices and he expects his guys to bust it on the court. Every time. He’s also willing to bend the ear of an official. And by bend I mean use language that would make a sailor blush.…

  13. Byron Scott likes effort, will stick with new lineup. For at least a week.

    Dec 9, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Byron Scott had watched his team seemingly sulk through games ever since the Miami Heat destroyed them, and he had seen enough. He wanted to give them a swift kick in the, um, rear. So Jamario Moon you can watch this one in a suit. JJ Hickson, take a seat. Antawn Jamison and Daniel Gibson,…

  14. LeBron compares his situation with Brett Favre, Packers. Of course he does.

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Wasn’t it inevitable that the LeBron James and Brett Favre story lines would merge? Before the Heat took on the Bucks Monday night in Milwaukee, James was asked if he could relate to what Favre went through with his bitter departure from the Packers, and the Associated Press has his answer. “Brett (had) great years…

  15. Report: Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala

    Dec 5, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala is prepared for it. Now it appears to be happening. Slowly. The Ohio Morning Journal reports that the Sixers are shopping the wingman around. That would not be a shock to anyone, but the Sixers have been publically mum on the idea (or said it’s not happening), especially as they have won three…

  16. LeBron James, Daniel Gibson still BFFs, or something

    Dec 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    After the Heat were done wiping the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night, some things were said. Daniel Gibson used to be tight with LeBron James but he said some things afterwards that made it sound like they wouldn’t be sharing any text messages about the latest episode of Glee, or whatever it is…

  17. LeBron, Cavaliers in-game talk not so friendly

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:51 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    A chorus of people — led by Charles Barkley — questioned what looked like some friendly banter between the LeBron James and the Cavaliers bench Thursday night. For the most part, people have questioned how the Cavs could joke around with the guy kicking their, um, behind. But apparently it wasn’t that friendly. As Daniel…

  18. Cavs fans had nothing on fans in Greece, just ask Josh Childress

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:33 PM EDT

    Josh Childress , Al Harrington

    There was a lot of anger in Cleveland last night, a lot of “a—hole” chants and a handful of people tossed from the building. It reminded the Suns Josh Childress of Greece (where he played the last two seasons). Well, not really, the Cavaliers fans were not angry enough and did not throw explosives or…

  19. Video: LeBron’s post-game press conference

    Dec 3, 2010, 10:41 AM EDT

    James_tired

    Through it all, LeBron James was the one with the cool head, the guy who handled it all pretty well. That includes his post-game press conference, which you can see here. His one regret in a few years from Thursday night? That jacket. It is not going to age well.

  20. Eddie House almost went after Daniel Gibson last night

    Dec 3, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    housefinger

    The fans may have been relatively good last night, but Miami’s Eddie House almost was not. Sam Amick of FanHouse has the story. Eddie House wasn’t willing to forgive Cavs guard Boobie Gibson for the events that led to double technical fouls in the late fourth quarter, and that standoff nearly segued into the worst…

  21. With handful of exceptions, Cavaliers fans well behaved for Heat game

    Dec 3, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    When the Heat first ran out on the court for warmups Thursday night, one guy came up in LeBron James face. He was yelling and pointing — and quickly security was on him. He was ejected. That man was the exception to the rule. By and large Cavaliers fans wanted to boo and vent —…

  22. Game of the night: LeBron makes his point, the Heat do not

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:41 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One thing we knew going into this game was the Heat were capable of just blowing out bad teams — 7 of their 11 wins had come by double digits over sub-.500 teams. Make that 8 of 12. For all the hype about the Cleveland fans getting to vent their anger at LeBron — and…

  23. Signs in Cleveland Tonight: No LeBron Jerseys

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:12 PM EDT

    202058441

    The photo you see to the right is of one of the signs at the bar Harry Buffalo in Cleveland, putting up a dress code for tonight and giving you an idea of the mood in town. As you can see, this is no Indians game, you can’t bring your LeBron James Heat jersey in.…

  24. Carlos Boozer, no stranger to deserting Cleveland, empathizes with LeBron

    Dec 2, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    Once upon a time, a LeBron James sidekick had delusions of grandeur. He saw a coin gleaming out of the corner of his eye, and turned his verbal commitment to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers into mere words. It’s been five years since Carlos Boozer walked out on the Cavs, but if anyone can even…

  25. LeBron returns to Cleveland, and nobody will leave feeling like a winner

    Dec 2, 2010, 4:08 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Some team is going to win a basketball game tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. But is anybody going to walk out of the building tonight in Cleveland feeling like a winner? Feeling happy? When emotions are this intense, this raw, is that really even possible? Can anything — even a win by the Cavaliers —…
