Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Is Shaq a possible replacement for Sheed?

    Jun 27, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    The Celtics are about to enter a very uncomfortable time in the life of a franchise. Their best produced roster, with four Hall of Famers (at least), a stunning young point guard, and a range of versatile bigs failed to win a championship. Ray Allen is a free agent. Paul Pierce will opt out. And…

  2. Blazers considering Ferry for GM position

    Jun 26, 2010, 11:58 PM EDT

    The Portland Trail Blazers fired GM Kevin Pritchard Thursday night after three years in which he led the Blazers from utter disaster to one of the most promising core of players in the league. He was fired despite being known for “winning” nearly ever transaction he was involved in and being one step ahead of…

  3. The Cavs are setting themselves up to be shown up by LA again

    Jun 26, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    Earlier we told you that the Cavs have turned their coaching attentions towards Brian Shaw. It behooves us to talk a little bit about what this means for Cleveland. It means Cleveland is trying valiantly to be a premier franchise in the league. They’re willing to go out and aggressively pursue guys with championship rings.…

  4. Which teams are most impacted by LeBron James not touring for free agency?

    Jun 26, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    We told you earlier that LeBron would not be going on a worldwide tour of his free agent destinations as had been previously reported. But the question now is, which teams are most impacted by that decision? Let’s take a look at the candidates and rank the impact this has on their chances on a…

  5. Report: Jiggaman Jay-Z, Prokhorov get first crack at LeBron James

    Jun 26, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Sure, the Finals were fun, in a sort of “two-teams-shooting-35%-from-the-floor” sort of way. But now the real entertainment begins. Watching professional franchises, several steeped in rich history and other heralded by some of the most powerful men in the world, crawl and beg before a 25-year-old small forward from Akron, Ohio.  First up? H.O.V.A.  Yahoo!…

  6. Cavs set to interview Lakers' assistant Brian Shaw

    Jun 25, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Cleveland continues to interview every head coaching prospect under the sun, and they’ve added L.A. assistant Brian Shaw to their itinerary. From Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:  Shaw, a Lakers assistant coach the last five seasons, has been officially approached for an interview by Cleveland, The Times has learned, making this week even busier…

  7. Are the Bulls now the leaders in the LeBron sweepstakes?

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    There are a lot of jittery Cleveland Cavaliers fans right now. And not just because they had four cups at the Cleveland Coffee Company. Clevelanders woke up this morning to a new landscape. Yesterday morning they were still the most logical place for LeBron James to play — they had shown him a serious commitment…

  8. Chris Bosh says he is waiting on LeBron. Aren't we all?

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    As Mick Jagger said: Chris Bosh is not waiting on a lady, he’s just waiting on LeBron. (Well, he said something like that, it was a long time ago and I was pretty stoned last time I heard that song.) Chris Bosh admitted on ESPN radio this morning what we all knew already: LeBron eats…

  9. Cavs shop around Mo Williams, but DeLonte West is the one you can have

    Jun 23, 2010, 2:22 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:22 pm: Mo Williams really doesn’t want to be traded. Check out what he put up on his twitter account: Pls don’t trade me, I’m not ready to go. I’m begging. My work ain’t done yet. I’m on both knees….pls. I’m serious 11:42 am: Cleveland is considering everything right now. You have a seven-team…

  10. LeBron willing to pay $2 million to be wooed by New York

    Jun 22, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Free agency has a price. Freedom to choose has a price. Everything has a price. Welcome to capitalism. LeBron James wants his freedom. He wants to be a free agent and be wooed by the city of Chicago and have Jay-Z perform “New York” to him in person. But Brian Windhorst notes in the Cleveland…

  11. Where is Ray Allen shooting next year?

    Jun 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Ray Allen can still shoot the rock. Remember Game 2 of the NBA finals? A record 8 three pointers? That stroke is still pure. But the man can no longer really carry a team for long. He is a piece of the puzzle, a sharp-shooting role player on a contender now. That has value for…

  12. Ohio minor league baseball team takes latest swing in 'Most Pathetic LeBron James Pitch' competition

    Jun 19, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    I’d just like to take a moment and applaud those NBA cities with cap space that haven’t completely degraded themselves in an attempt to grab headlines related to LeBron James by throwing themselves at him with gimmicks. Thanks for that.  For the rest of you, here’s your latest competition.  The Cleveland Plains Dealer reports that…

  13. LeBron James actually makes an appearance at one of the rallies held in his honor

    Jun 19, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    From Los Angeles to New York City, fans of teams with cap space from all around the country are mounting guerilla movements to entice LeBron James. Fans are practically pledging everything from their eternal fandom to their first-born children as payment for James’ services, and they’re holding parades, rallies, and animal sacrifices (just guessing on…

  14. Byron Scott to get second interview in Cleveland, but Cavs not moving fast

    Jun 17, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    After tonight, Byron Scott has nothing to do for a while. His duties as an analyst with ESPN will be done and he will have a lot more free time on his hands. Enough time to squeeze in a second interview with the Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst at the Cleveland Plain Dealer. But while…

  15. Tom Izzo in his own words

    Jun 16, 2010, 5:35 PM EDT

      Plenty of words have been put in Tom Izzo’s mouth, plenty of speculation on his thinking the last week. Here’s what he had to say himself.

  16. Izzo is out, who is behind curtain number two in Cleveland?

    Jun 16, 2010, 3:13 PM EDT

    And behind curtain number two we have…. No idea. Byron Scott is the only other name we know. But now that Tom Izzo has made the smart play and decided not to risk one of the better jobs in college basketball on the whims of LeBron James, the Cavaliers could go back to square one…

  17. Tom Izzo doesn't like the media coverage? Then make a decision.

    Jun 16, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    Among all the fun comments from Tom Izzo on why he decided to stay at Michigan State, and how happy all the administrators at Michigan State are that Izzo did not run off with an NBA mistress, came this interesting thread. Izzo didn’t like the media coverage. He said the coverage of this was hard…

  18. Ding-dong, the Izzo saga is dead: Tom will stay at MSU

    Jun 15, 2010, 7:37 PM EDT

    It’s done. After days of deliberation, more deliberation, and even more very public deliberation, Tom Izzo has decided to stay at Michigan State University and decline a rather substantial contract offered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Good riddance. At this point, the pros and cons have been…

  19. Winderman: The lesson is the regular season is overrated

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    What we have here is a referendum on the regular season, affirmation, if you will, of whether the first 82 games are, as many insist, indeed overrated. At 50-32, the Celtics finished tied for the ninth-best record in the NBA. Only four of the 16 playoff teams finished behind Boston. As a matter of perspective,…

  20. New York celebrities form team to woo LeBron James

    Jun 15, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    What do the New York Knicks have to offer LeBron James? A roster of quality players ready to compete for a title once he signs? No. More money than any other team can offer? Nope, that’s Cleveland. The chance to occasionally escape the glare of the spotlight in the comforts of your hometown? No, kind…

  21. Report: LeBron "100 percent" endorses Izzo as coach

    Jun 14, 2010, 8:25 AM EDT

    It has been the biggest lingering question about the Cavaliers pursuit of Michigan State coach Tom Izzo to take their head job: What would LeBron James think? Because right now all things Cavaliers revolve around what LeBron James wants and thinks. When they order new pens for the Cavaliers offices they ask, “What color pens…

  22. Breaking News: Tom Izzo still undecided. Yes, we're serious.

    Jun 13, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    At this point, these Tom Izzo updates hurt us as much as they hurt you. This is an update to tell you that the Michigan State coach responded to texts from the AP with the cryptic “still gathering.” What’s he gathering,exactly? The people? News? Rain? Crops? “Our sources indicate Tom Izzo is gathering tomatoes for…

  23. Feel free to make up your own Tom Izzo Cavaliers report at this point

    Jun 12, 2010, 12:06 AM EDT

    First, the Dragnet: After earlier reports indicated Tom Izzo would announce his departure for the Cavs head coaching gig on Friday, and then Saturday, Brian Windhorst, the guy that’s going to know (seriously, we’re pretty sure Windhorst knows how long it takes for the toilets at the Q to flush) says the decision will come…

  24. Windhorst: Izzo to make Cavaliers decision on Saturday

    Jun 11, 2010, 5:56 PM EDT

    According to the Twitter account of the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Brian Windhorst, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo told his (current) team that he will make his decision on Saturday.  Earlier today, Izzo sent a text message to the Associate Press stating that he had not yet made his final decison. According to Plain Dealer writer…

  25. Tom Izzo to decide on Cavaliers job. Someday. In the near future.

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    It was probably a lot like those time share sales pitches you suffered through to get those two free days in Las Vegas. Tom Izzo has traveled to Cleveland and heard their hard-sell sales pitch. He talked with their people and toured the facilities (which he had been at before) while his family toured the…
