Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Shaq says Cleveland was selfish, unlike Boston

    Sep 4, 2010, 3:32 PM EDT

    It’s been one of those questions about this season’s Boston Celtics: Will the selfless chemistry that defined this team remain the same with Shaquille O’Neal and Jermaine O’Neal and a full year of Nate Robinson? Probably, the leadership at the top of the big three will set the tone. And in case you were worried,…

  2. LeBron James, Mo Williams talk it out

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    In the wake of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth after LeBron James made his announcement about his talents, one set of tweets in particular stood out: Cavaliers teammate Mo Williams — one of LeBron’s closer friends on the team — felt hurt and said so in his twitter account. ”We were so damn…

  3. New Cavs could mean a fresh start for Boobie Gibson

    Aug 29, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Daniel “Boobie” Gibson scored 31 points. And was never heard from again. Okay, that’s not exactly true. He scored 22 the next year in a first round series with Washington, but for the most part, he was buried behind Mo Williams and Delonte West. Coach Mike Brown…

  4. Cavaliers extend new GM Chris Grant's contract to five years

    Aug 26, 2010, 2:12 PM EDT

    Congratulations Chris Grant, the job completely rebuilding the Cleveland Cavaliers is now yours. Grant, the assistant general manager who was promoted to the big chair when Danny Ferry was let go, had his contract extended to five years, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Back in 2008 Grant was a frontrunner for…

  5. Chinese Group's effort to buy part of Cavaliers died months ago

    Aug 26, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    Remember what a big deal it was just over a year ago, a sign that LeBron was destined to be in Cleveland forever? A group of Chinese investors led by Kenny Huang was going to buy 15 percent of the Cleveland Cavaliers. With LeBron’s efforts to break into the Chinese market in a bigger way,…

  6. Danny Ferry is headed back to Spurs front office

    Aug 25, 2010, 10:15 PM EDT

    Danny Ferry left the Spurs front office in 2005 to try and build a team in Cleveland around Lebron James. You can discuss amongst yourself how good a job he did — he hired a defensive-minded coach in Mike Brown then kept giving him talented guys who were weak on that end of the floor…

  7. Kenyon Martin is still waiting to be impressed

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:55 PM EDT

    How long can the Denver Nuggets honestly claim to be on the brink of contention? There is some room for natural improvement — having George Karl back should help, more playing time for Ty Lawson would go a long way, etc. — but this team is essentially the same as it was last year. And…

  8. Don't worry Cleveland, John Mayer has your back; will wear Cavs jersey at Miami concert

    Aug 18, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland is “Dreaming With A Broken Heart” after The Decision. Don’t worry Cleveland. John Mayer has your back. Rather than “Waiting on the World To Change” he is going to stir the pot himself. He may even end up on LeBron’s fabled list, even though LeBron is “Bigger Than My Body.” At a recent concert…

  9. Cavaliers unveil new uniforms, the age of jersey minimalism continues

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:43 PM EDT

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have new-look duds to go with their new-look team (get excited for Christian Eyenga!), and they look pretty sharp: Image via Ball Don’t Lie. The Cavs are just one of the many teams to shift to a more minimalistic, traditional look. Squads like the Celtics and Lakers have held onto their historic…

  10. Anderson Varejao injured in international game, will be out one week

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:02 PM EDT

    UPDATE 12:02 pm: The Brazilian doctors have taken an MRI of Varejao’s right ankle and there is no serious damage. In fact, he could play tomorrow, according to Cleveland AP writer Tom Withers. Also, the Cavaliers have spoken to Varejao and know this is nothing serious. 8:56 am: Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao suffered an ankle injury…

  11. Samardo Samuels signed by Cleveland Cavaliers

    Aug 17, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Samardo Samuels presents one of those draft conundrums. He’s a guy you really question on a paper — an undersized post player at 6’8″ who is not explosive, plays below the rim and showed no real midrange game in college at Louisville. Yet he can just play. He was a fairly efficient inside scorer in…

  12. Spurs trying to bring Danny Ferry back to their front office

    Aug 11, 2010, 9:57 AM EDT

    Danny Ferry is no Pat Riley. Ferry spent years in Cleveland trying to build a team around LeBron James that would make the superstar happy. He built some very good teams — teams with the best record in the NBA the last two years — but not ones that could win it all. So Cavaliers…

  13. LeBron's long time girlfriend not loving Miami but she is stepping out of the cold

    Aug 9, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    Savannah Brinson does not come off as a woman ready to go on “Basketball Wives.” She sounds like a woman comfortable with herself and her role in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. But don’t confuse that with her loving the idea of moving to Miami. “Personally, Miami was not my favorite place. Vacationing there is…

  14. Video: LeBron speaks in Akron, expressing his love for Cleveland

    Aug 8, 2010, 6:18 PM EDT

      Here’s the video, LeBron James speaking in Akron at his annual bike-a-thon for charity. He says all the right things. Clevelanders would like to remind you that actions speak louder than words.

  15. LeBron not only shows up for Akron event, but doesn't get booed into oblivion

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    In the aftermath of “The Decision,” a few Cleveland fans emerged from the rubble. Stumbling, mumbling to themselves, they asked a question, “Wait, LeBron’s got charity events in Akron in a few weeks. Is he even going to be able to show his face there?” The question, apparently, is a resounding yes. LeBron’s King for…

  16. One Cavalier to watch: J.J. Hickson

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:27 PM EDT

    While the Cavaliers were losing to the Boston Celtics, J.J. Hickson spent a lot of time watching. Hickson played just shy of 21 minutes a game during last regular season, but that dropped to 7.2 minutes per game in the playoffs. Plenty of people wanted to know why. Byron Scott is not going to make…

  17. Lance Blanks is the next general manager in Phoenix

    Aug 5, 2010, 8:23 PM EDT

    Lance Blanks is the latest loss for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Blanks, now the No. 2 man on the Cleveland basketball side, has decided to take over as general manager of the Phoenix Suns. Blanks had been rumored to be the frontrunner. In practice, Blanks may be the No. 2 guy in Phoenix, too. Lon Babby,…

  18. Maverick Carter defends LeBron's Akron letter as having nothing to do with Cleveland

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    LeBron James is an Akron man. Born and raised. Still lives there. Do not confuse that with being a Cleveland man. He played for the Cavaliers, but don’t go thinking Akron and Cleveland are one in the same. Well, Clevelanders may consider Akron a suburb but the feeling is not mutual. The fine folks of…

  19. Celtics "close" to signing Shaquille O'Neal

    Aug 3, 2010, 4:39 PM EDT

    If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. According to A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast SportsNet, the Celtics are “close” to signing free agent center Shaquille O’Neal to a contract. Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says the Cavs have not been talking to the Celtics about a sign-and-trade, so this deal is very likely…

  20. As expected, Delonte West waived by Minnesota

    Aug 3, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Everyone knew this was coming from the minute Minnesota traded for him — the Timberwolves have waived Delonte West. This was purely a financial move, West’s non-guaranteed deal meant he only had to be paid $500,000 of the $4.5 million he was owed. West is now a free agent and will likely draw interest from…

  21. Practice your booing now: LeBron returns to Cleveland Dec. 2

    Aug 3, 2010, 11:35 AM EDT

    The entire state of Ohio just circled Dec. 2 on their calendars. Well, except for Columbus which cares only about the Michigan game, but the rest of the state circled Dec. 2. That is when LeBron James and the Miami Heat come to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland…

  22. LeBron James popularity, brand will return with wins

    Aug 2, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    Winning cures all ills in sports. Right now, LeBron James popularity has taken a hit. A Los Angeles based poling company, E-Poll Market Research, released the results of a survey that found his ratings on words like “appeal” and “exciting” dropped by double digits, while his rating on the word “overexposed” was up 26 percent.…

  23. Clevelanders not done venting at LeBron, buy billboard

    Aug 2, 2010, 12:06 PM EDT

    It takes time. We’ll forgive the fine people of Cleveland for not yet being over having their hearts ripped out and stomped on in a national television show. At least some of them are being clever about it. Like the Omada Group, which is paying $3,000 for a billboard about two miles from James’ Akron…

  24. Zydrunas Ilgauskas pens letter thanking Cleveland

    Aug 1, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland fans aren’t dealing with the loss of one favorite son. They’re dealing with two. Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a Cavalier for 14 years, headed to Miami with LeBron James to try and win a championship with his friend. James’ betrayal was “king” in Cleveland. Get it? “King?” As in, LeBron James, “King James?” It’s a pun,…

  25. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…
