Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Tom Izzo shows his interest in the Cavs' courtship, scheduled to visit Cleveland

    Jun 10, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Higher-ups within the Cavs’ front office have been mailing Tom Izzo wine and cheese baskets for some three weeks now, while routinely mailing him letters soaked in cheap perfume and printed with Delonte West’s lipstick kisses. Cleveland has been pretty aggressive in their advances, and Izzo is apparently reciprocating the team’s flirtations. From Brian Windhorst…

  18. Byron Scott now the guy in line behind Tom Izzo for Cavaliers coaching job

    Jun 10, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    Cavaliers’ owner Dan Gilbert is a Michigan State graduate, and on that campus Tom Izzo walks on water. That’s how a college coach with plenty of questions about how he would succeed in the NBA has become the guy at the center of the Cleveland coaching discussion. But now Byron Scott is the other guy…

  19. Izzo's decision hinges on LeBron's decision

    Jun 9, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    Tom Izzo is reaching out for advice on what to do — stay at Michigan State or make double his current salary and coach the Cleveland Cavaliers.? We and pretty much everyone else has suggested that Izzo’s decision has to hinge on LeBron James. Izzo talked to former Michigan State coach Jud Heathcote (the guy…

  20. Quote of the day, Dan Gilbert is his own man

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    “He is a basketball player and a great one and his interests are aligned with our interests. But this concept that this franchise has been handed to a player who is running it and making the decisions is just completely and totally false” –Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, refuting stories that LeBron James is making…

  21. Cavaliers GM Grant talks coaching search

    Jun 8, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant talks about the team’s coaching search, which has nothing to do with what LeBron James wants. Nope. Not a thing. Don’t think that for a second. In the first few seconds he dances around the Tom Izzo question like a pro.  

  22. Cleveland's coaching catch-22

    Jun 8, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Cavaliers are doing a little coaching tango with Tom Izzo, Michigan State’s legendary college coach. An offer is on the table, according to reports. But Izzo’s no dummy — he’s not going to sign up for a rebuilding project in the NBA. He’s only making the leap if he has a shot at a…

  23. Report: Cavaliers make offer to Tom Izzo

    Jun 6, 2010, 8:51 PM EDT

    The Cavaliers are making a hard push for Tom Izzo as their next coach. That much is clear. The question is how hard. The Northern Ohio News-Herald is reporting that an offer has been made to Izzo to become the next head coach of the Cavs as they seek to keep LeBron James, a curious…

  24. Report: Cavaliers shopping Mo Williams, Delonte West

    Jun 6, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland needed to make some changes. It was pretty clear that the current formula worked great in the regular season but could be exposed in a seven-game series. But damn, Cleveland. You won 60 games two years in a row. Coach? Gone. General manager? Gone. Shaquille O’Neal? Probably gone. Mo Williams? They’ll trade him. Same…

  25. Does Ferry's resignation open the door for a LeBron James-Larry Brown meetup?

    Jun 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    Danny Ferry wound up going down with the ship, as it were. But the Navy still needs an admiral, and now the question has to become if this was part of an effort to nab a bigger fish. Assistant GM Chris Grant is taking over for the time being, but with the biggest summer in…
