My Sportsman of the Year: Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving Cleveland Cavaliers

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year is an annual must-read. Sadly, that the national recognition rarely has anything to do with the teams or individuals whom we cover. In turn, WFNY will soon announce its choice for 2014’s Cleveland Sportsman of the Year. Here’s one of the nominations for that honor by an WFNY writer.

Peak Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers Big Three

The Cavs are going to be good. Like really good. Stupid good. Video game good. Offensively, they could be down right transcendent. Our local basketball team is based around LeBron James and two dudes who won the three-point contest. That’s down right insane. And not the LeBron who left. Oh no. We’re getting the fully

Cavs unlikely lotto win gives them plenty of options

Embiid

  Who figured that the Season of Huh had one last insane twist in store for us, eh? The fact that the Cavs won the NBA Lottery (once again) still hasn’t sunk in. Never in my wildest dreams did I think they’d land the top pick. I’m almost embarrassed by it. Almost. Who expects that their team will win

The Season of Huh: Your 2013-14 Cleveland Cavaliers

Mike Brown

Sometimes a professional sports team can have one of those dream seasons. A year where everything seems to go right. One of those seasons where seemingly minor acquisitions pay big dividends, where the Krenzel bootleg is inexplicably unstoppable or somehow Sandy Alomar Jr ends up batting in every clutch situation. Whatever the reason, all the

Welcome to #CavsRank, the illustrious ranking of the best all-time Cleveland Cavaliers players from some of your favorite Cavs bloggers. Today, Ohio native Ron Harper checks in at No. 16.  “Cleveland, to this day, would have had better success if they would have kept Ron Harper, because he was one of the guys who gave

Cavs at the halfway point, everything sucks

I laugh every time.

I was really looking forward to this Cavalier season.  No more lottery visits for us, no sir. The Cavs were making a push towards the playoffs. They were taking the Next Step. I was excited to see Mike Brown take over a young team with (potentially) multiple offensive weapons. No longer would Brown be beholden to

Browns-Bears Inactives for Week 15

Jason Campbell will start at quarterback today for the Browns against the Chicago Bears.  Jay Cutler will reclaim his starting quarterback job from Josh McCown after missing the previous four games with groin and ankle injuries. The move has left some scratching their heads, as McCown is coming off the best statistical three game stretch ever

Charles Barkley thinks LeBron should come back, says Cleveland has “great fans”

Because it never ends. We’re gonna be dealing with “LeBron could/should/might/won’t come back to the Cavs” stories until the minute he retires. And I’m willing to bet that we’ll see a few “LeBron should unretire and play for the Cavs” stories before all is said and done. In an interview with CNN’s Rachel Nichols, Hall

Cavs optimism vs Cavs pessimism

cavs_nuggets13

This has been a really bizarre Cavalier season. They’re in Year 3 of the Kyrie Irving era and by all accounts the Cavs want to be making the playoffs. They signed veterans Jarrett Jack and Andrew Bynum and they had the top pick in the daft to help that playoff push. But they ended their

Cavs Earn Second Road Win of the Season, Top Orlando 109-100

kyrie

I had really low expectations heading into Friday’s game. I couldn’t help it. The Cavs (9-13) entered the evening just 1-10 on the road and man, have they had some stinkers. They haven’t had the greatest track record of getting up for… less than stellar competition. They were blown out by the Hawks, they were

Week Eight: Browns vs Ravens Open Thread

brownsravens

  Brandon Weeden nearly beat the Ravens in Baltimore. That happened. It was a horrible game to watch and sure, Baltimore’s one-point lead felt like 50. But the Browns only lost 14-6. Jason Campbell took some snaps in the game and… it wasn’t pretty. That game feels like a life time ago. Josh Gordon had

Ohio State blows out the Boilermakers 56-0, now 21-0 under Meyer

Carlos Hyde is athletic.

This game was never going to be close, but Purdue did themselves no favors. We weren’t even a full minute into the game when Doran Grant returned Danny Etling’s interception to the house to put Ohio State up 7-0. Purdue proceeded to go three and out on their next possession but a crappy punt gave

Pacers prove to be too much, overpower Cavs 89-74

The Indiana Pacers are pretty damn good at basketball. The Pacers lead the league in defensive efficiency last season and they took LeBron and the Heat to a seventh game in the Eastern Conference Finals. This year, they look even better. Paul George has matured (and allegedly grown two inches), Lance Stephens0n has improved and
