Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Game 2 of the Melo era in New York did not go as planned

    Feb 26, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Whoops. Days after the Knicks downed the Bucks in Madison Square Garden to kick off the Carmelo Anthony era in, well, decent style if not glamor, things have taken a turn for the worse.  The Knicks were beaten by the Cavaliers Friday night before they meet the Heat on Sunday. Yes, the Cavaliers. Yes, those…

  2. Mike Fratello to coach Ukrainian national team

    Feb 25, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    The Czar (of the telestrator) is headed to the old Soviet bloc. Mike Fratello, the former NBA coach and current TNT color commentator, will coach the Ukrainian national team at the European Championships this summer, according to the Associated Press. Hopefully they like slow it down, grind it out, defensive basketball that Fratello was known…

  3. Cavaliers’ move for the future could easily backfire

    Feb 24, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers will have another lottery pick with which to establish a young core for the future, but they had better hope that in their trade deadline deal — which netted the Clippers’ Baron Davis and the aforementioned pick for Mo Williams — the only price they pay is measured in salary committed and…

  4. Clippers trade Baron Davis to Cavaliers for Mo Williams

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is why they are the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s about compounding mistakes. The Clippers and Cavaliers have agreed to a trade that sends point guard Baron Davis and a 2011 first-round pick to the Cavaliers for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. This is a huge win for the Clippers.…

  5. Gerald Wallace to Portland has cooled off, may be dead

    Feb 23, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    UPDATE 8:42 pm: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and other reports this trade has at the very least “cooled down” and may be dead. Woj suggests that, as he has done on other deals that reached the point of just needing a final approval, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan may have gotten cold feet. The…

  6. PBT Wednesday morning one liners (with some trade rumors)

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Cavaliers Lakers Basketball

    If you have picks to trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers roster is open to you. Yes, Boston is looking for another player. Doc says so. The Trail Blazers are checking out the market for Andre Miller and Marcus Camby. Camby has no desire to be traded. The Hawks really want Washington’s Kirk Hinrich to be their…

  7. Report: Celtics, Bulls both want Cavaliers’ Anthony Parker

    Feb 18, 2011, 1:43 PM EDT

    Anthony Parker

    If you’re Anthony Parker, you’re packing your bags with a smile on your face today. Because no matter how this goes down, you’re about to head from the worst team in the NBA to a contender. Both the Celtics and Cavaliers are interested in picking up Parker, according to Marc Stein of ESPN: The Celts,…

  8. Contenders, pretenders, wish-it-would-enders — taking stock of the NBA at the break

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Welcome to All-Star Weekend, when the NBA takes a break from playing games to talk about trades. And hear about the great parties that the players went to. Then talk about more trades. Then watch an exhibition with less defense than a Cavs-Raptors game. For the rest of us, it’s a good time to take…

  9. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  10. Video: Christian Eyenga rocks the rim, Lakers

    Feb 17, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    One play cannot sum up why the Cavaliers beat the Lakers Wednesday night, but this is pretty close. Notice how hard Christian Eyenga is going to the rim. He want’s it. It’s been on-and-off in recent games, but there are nights the Cavaliers bring real energy and attack. Also watch Kobe Bryant get beat on…

  11. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Feb 17, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Philadelphia 76ers

    Kobe Bryant said at shootaround Wednesday afternoon he really felt for Byron Scott. That shoe may be on the other foot, now. Steve Nash has moved past Gary Payton in to seventh on the all-tine assists list. What is Glen Davis doing better to become a Sixth Man of the Year candidate? The Heat are…

  12. Chris Rock knew LeBron was gone, why didn’t Cleveland?

    Feb 17, 2011, 8:19 AM EDT

    'Grown Ups' - Germany Premiere

    Well, maybe everybody does hate Chris in Cleveland now. Chris Rock pulls no punches. It’s why his stand up is so great — he tells you straight out how he sees it. And in an interview with Esquire Magazine (done by Scott Raab who is writing a book about LeBron leaving Cleveland) Rock says Clevelanders…

  13. The Cavaliers stun the Lakers

    Feb 16, 2011, 10:57 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

    It’s safe to say that the All-Star Break couldn’t be coming at a better time for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers lost the last three games of their recent seven-game road trip, and their struggles culminated in a shocking loss to the woeful Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. The 10-46 Cavaliers were coming off…

  14. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  15. Cavaliers working hard to trade anyone, everyone

    Feb 16, 2011, 1:23 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    The Cleveland Cavaliers do not really have a championship roster. You probably figured that out somewhere during the 26-game losing streak. Well, you probably figured it out seconds after LeBron James talked about taking his talents south for the winter. Dan Gilbert figured it out later. What matters now is we are all on the…

  16. Wizards end road drought with win over… Cleveland. Of course.

    Feb 13, 2011, 11:16 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s been 310 days since the Wizards last won a road game. But after going 0-25 this season on the road, the Wizards are finally off the snide. Thankfully, they ran into the Cleveland Cavaliers on a back to back, who, after breaking their own horrendous streak against the Clippers, dutifully wilted. The Wizards actually…

  17. J.J. Hickson informs Blake Griffin that he will not pass “Go”

    Feb 12, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s only fitting that something spectacular encapsulated the Cavaliers getting over the hump of the single most epic losing streak in NBA history. It was going to take the players stepping up on a level we haven’t seen, and they definitely did. Particularly J.J. Hickson. J.J. Hickson was supposed to take the franchise forward into…

  18. Cavs Win! Cavs Win! Cavs Win! (It still counts against the Clippers)

    Feb 12, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    There is something historically appropriate that the Cavaliers ended their losing streak against the Clippers. Cleveland’s oddly fascinating losing streak ended dramatically at 26 with a 126-119 overtime win at home on Friday night. It seemed a fitting way to go — the Cavs had been giving the effort (mostly) for weeks, but had not…

  19. Good news for Cavaliers: Mo Williams returns tonight

    Feb 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Mo Williams Sad

    Of those 26 games the Cleveland Cavaliers have lost in a row, the 14 have come with Mo Williams sitting out due to a hip injury. Think they could have used a scoring guard who doesn’t fear big moments in a few of those games? They get him back Friday — Mo Williams will return…

  20. Byron Scott rips his team, effort after loss 26 in a row

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    In the games leading up to the Cavaliers record in futility — 25 consecutive losses in a row — there were a lot of things you could pick apart about the Cavs: The lack of guys who can create their own shot, the lack of rebounding, the poor execution, the non-existent interior defense, and so…

  21. Anthony Parker says Cavaliers are growing from losses

    Feb 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Anthony Parker

    Anthony Parker was honest after the game — Cleveland is not there but they are growing. They played with a real energy and desperation last night, they just ran into one of the deepest, most talented teams in the league. Even then they had their chances. In the video below Paker talks about that growth,…

  22. Cavaliers would not quit, could not win; lose record 25th straight

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:03 AM EDT

    JJ Hickson

    Desperate teams are dangerous teams. And Cleveland was desperate not to set a new all timeconsecutive loss record Monday night. But the thing that trumps effort is talent — Dallas had a lot more of it and a desire not to be the first team to lose to the Cavaliers since before Christmas. The result…

  23. Cavaliers may be losing but Dan Gilbert is making big money

    Feb 7, 2011, 9:39 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    On the court, Cleveland is an unmitigated disaster. They’ve won one game since the start of December. They are losing big. On the accountant’s ledger, the Cavaliers are winning big. It’s the remnants of the LeBron James era — money committed before he was gone more than covers a post-LeBron payroll, as Jason Lloyd explains…

  24. LeBron’s effect on ratings dramatic

    Feb 7, 2011, 6:33 PM EDT

    Gucci Cocktail Party For Ffawn

    The Sports Business Journal just released a report comparing this season’s local TV ratings for NBA teams to the ratings from last season, and one thing is clear: People like to watch LeBron James play basketball. The Heat’s average rating is currently 5.4; that’s the third-highest average rating in the league (behind the Spurs and…

  25. Cleveland enters record book as Cavs lose 24th consecutive games in a single season

    Feb 5, 2011, 10:45 PM EDT

    cavsfan

    There’s no pity in sports. Not really. In fact, many sane, compassionate people are overcome by a certain blood-thirsty ruthlessness when they play,watch, or are involved in sports. It takes over our mindsets and that competitive nature spreads like a virus and removes the part of us that leads us to show concern for our…
