  1. Add Samardo Samuels to list of guys frustrated with union

    Nov 15, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    SAMUELS_SAMARDO

    There are plenty of NBA players grumbling about the NBPA’s move to file a disclaimer of interest and move the lockout to the courts. But only a few are willing to make those concerns public. There are a few out there, and you can add Cavaliers forward Samardo Samuels to that list, as he told…

  2. If no deal soon, Kyrie Irving says he is going overseas. Right.

    Kyrie Irving from Duke University smiles before the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Ahhh, rookies. It really takes some time to learn the timing of the NBA. Whether it is when to make a pass to a cutting player — the players move faster and the windows are smaller in the NBA — or how to act off the court, it takes some getting used to. Which brings…

  3. Video: Author delivers “Whore of Akron” book to LeBron

    Nov 8, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Not shown: hair on LeBron's forehead.

    We’ve already given you some excerpts from Scott Raab’s book “The Whore of Akron” where the Cleveland native slams LeBron James (but really spends most of the book talking about his personal demons and issues). If you want to know more, our man John Krolik did a fantastic review of it. Raab decided he wanted…

  4. If season cancelled, LeBron trade could help Cavs in draft

    Nov 7, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Since we’ve got nothing else NBA related to do today other than stare into the abyss and see if it stares back, let’s talk about an interesting little hypothetical. Let’s say the full NBA season gets cancelled. That leads to all sorts of questions about what order the picks would be in for the 2012…

  5. Video: Magic Johnson in cheesy commercial with Dan Gilbert

    Nov 4, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert, Earvin Magic Johnson

    In some kind of lockout nightmare by Sterling Cooper Draper Price, Magic Johnson has teamed up with Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. To shoot smart phones as if they were basketballs. And sell home loans. All done with extra cheese. It’s all part of a new Quicken Loans ad (that’s the company where Gilbert made enough…

  6. Shaq says LeBron never listened to Mike Brown in Cleveland

    Nov 2, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Shaq LeBron

    Shaquille O’Neal knows how to sell books. Make friends, not so much. But he’s going to sell copies of his new book. We already brought you excerpts where Shaq throws Kobe Bryant under the bus (and only Brian Shaw had a level head and dealt with the situation, but you don’t want him to be…

  7. Derrick Williams thought he should have been No. 1 pick

    Nov 1, 2011, 5:21 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The quote below can be taken out of context, as ego run amok. And it shouldn’t. Derrick Williams — the Arizona star who No. 2 overall to Minnesota in the last NBA draft — said what I would want any No. 2 pick to say. He said he thought he should be No. 1. You…

  8. LeBron wants Cleveland fans to know he misses them

    Oct 17, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    I’ll take “things that will not go over well” for $200, Alex… Cleveland fans will never forgive LeBron James. They see his move to Miami as a betrayal and abandonment, his public announcement of it the ultimate insult. LeBron isn’t looking for their for forgivenss, but he tweeted (when anwering fans questions) that he misses…

  9. What the Cavs should do if the lockout ends

    Oct 4, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    It wasn’t the best year for the Cavaliers. After finishing with the best regular-season record in the NBA for the second consecutive season in 09-10, the Cavaliers had the longest losing streak in NBA history and finished with the league’s second-worst record in 2010-11. In between the two seasons, Decisions were made. The Cavs’ 2010-11…

  10. Isiah Thomas: People don’t like LeBron because he’s successful

    Oct 3, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Say what you want about Isiah Thomas — and we’ve said plenty over the years — the man knows about being disliked. He was the best player on the “bad boy” Pistons teams. You’ll be hard pressed to find people around the old CBA league that speaks well of him. And then there’s the entire…

  11. Zydrunas Ilgauskas officially retires from NBA

    Sep 30, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Lithuanian big man Zydrunas Ilgauskas is retiring from the NBA after 13 seasons, 12 of them anchoring he middle for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ilgauskas spoke with the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which tweeted his quotes. Ilgauskas: “enough is enough. My body is beat up and I’m tired physically. There is no age limit, but everyone knows…

  12. About the owners losing money, it’s really complicated

    Sep 26, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    nets-barclays-center-basketball-2011-4-4-18-10-24

    There are NBA owners who have wondered if player endorsements should not be money in the basketball related income pool — those players wouldn’t make their money if not for the teams. But what about the other side of that coin — money the owners make on other businesses because they own and NBA franchise…

  13. Kyrie Irving’s foot will not be right for three more months

    Sep 26, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving from Duke University smiles before the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Cavaliers No. 1 pick Kyrie Irving is not a guy who likes to sit on the sidelines — he rushed back to play for Duke in the NCAA Tournament last March even though his foot was not 100 percent. So if the Cavaliers training camp were to open next week — it’s not — he…

  14. You haven’t seen Kyrie Irving this summer at Cavs request

    Sep 23, 2011, 5:07 PM EDT

    Some of the big names of the 2011 NBA Draft have had a busy summer. Josh Selby was turning a few heads at the Impact Basketball Series in Vegas the last couple weeks. Jimmer Fredette was throwing his own rookie game in Utah. Derrick Williams has been working out with Kobe Bryant. Jonas Valanciunas has…

  15. Video: Best of Vegas Impact “lockout league” from Monday

    Sep 20, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    Christian Eyenga

    We will have a lot more from the Impact Competitive Training Series — popularly known as the Vegas “lockout league” later in the week, but we’ll start you out with some highlights from Monday. That includes some impressive throwdowns from  Christian Eyenga, which should make Cavs fans happy. And after watching the Browns lose to the…

  16. Cavs owner Gilbert denies labor charges in his own way

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    You couldn’t make up someone like Dan Gilbert. No matter what font you used. We told you yesterday of a report that Cavaliers owner Gilbert and Suns owner Robert Sarver torpedoed progress at the labor negotiations Tuesday between the owners and players. That report comes from a trusted source in Dave McMenamin of ESPN. That…

  17. Report: Owners of Cavs, Suns killed potential labor deal

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:19 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    UPDATE 10:19 pm: David Stern called this report “incorrect and fictional” in his press conference following Thursday’s Board of Governor’s meetings. You can take that as the gospel truth or you can take it as Stern covering the backside of his owners. We all know this was the only thing Stern could say, he had…

  18. What’s the value of an athlete’s apology? Does it matter for LeBron?

    Sep 10, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    People tend to forget (or they don’t want to hear it), but LeBron James did apologize to Cleveland and fans for “how it all went down” with the decision. Of course, those comments came in May after the Heat had eliminated the Celtics from the playoffs, and were of the sentiment that “sorry, but I…

  19. Oh, good. Dan Gilbert is one of the “hawk” lockout leaders. Great.

    Sep 10, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    On Friday, ESPN broke down the positions of the 30 owners in the NBA, and where they stand on both revenue sharing and whether they are a “hawk” or a “dove” in terms of missing the season to get a CBA in strong support of the owners. There’s a lot of really interesting information in…

  20. Report: Couple more names pop up on Blazers GM list

    Sep 9, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    The Trail Blazers are looking at the men making basketball decisions for the Cavaliers and Clippers for their front office. Don’t laugh — if the criteria for the job is getting along with a pain-in-the-butt owner who injects himself into basketball decisions at bad times, front office people coming out of Cavalier and Clipper organizations…

  21. Top Cavalier picks decide to continue college courses rather than go overseas

    Aug 29, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Hampton v Duke

    According to Scott Sargent of Waiting For Next Year, the Cavaliers’ top two picks have chosen to stay on their respective college campuses for now rather than go overseas in search of a payday. Here’s the story: “Just picked out my classes for this fall,” tweeted one Kyrie Irving, first overall pick in the 2011…

  22. Report: Casspi now eyeing Tony Parker’s team in France

    Aug 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EDT

    omri-casspi-sacramento-kings-125-million

    Omri Casspi is not going to Israel if he plays overseas during he lockout. Which is kind of surprising but talks with Maccabi Tel Aviv (where he would team up with Jordan Farmar) fell through over money and now the Cavalier’s forward looking around at other options. Like teaming up with Tony Parker in France,…

  23. Report: Cavaliers want to retire Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ number

    Aug 22, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Image (1) ilgauskas_return-thumb-250x324-8079.jpg for post 1053

    When Zydrunas Ilgauskas — one of the most beloved players in Cleveland Cavaliers history — followed LeBron James to Miami, there was not any of the same animosity. In fact, they still want to honor the Lithuanian big man who spent 13 seasons with the Cavaliers by retiring his jersey. That’s the report from lithuaniabasketball.com.…

  24. LeBron says week after finals loss was worst he ever had

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A Miami Heat team in it’s first season together went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to a Dallas Mavericks team that found it’s stride after years together. That chemistry was part of the difference in that series. Watching the Heat lose was something fans everywhere and Kevin Love savored. You should…

  25. Report: Omri Casspi near deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Aug 15, 2011, 9:18 AM EDT

    omri-casspi-sacramento-kings-125-million

    While most of the major teams of Europe — the EuroLeague level teams — have shied away from signing NBA players Maccabi Tel Aviv has been the exception. They already signed Jordan Farmar and now Omri Casspi is reportedly set to return to the team. The Cavaliers forward played for the Israeli club before coming…
