Not only are the Michigan Wolverines hot garbage on the field, they’re now in the midst of a concussion scandal.
Good morning and Happy Thursday, readers! This is my inaugural installment in the new-world WWW at the site. Ben and I will be keeping Jacob’s Thursday slot warm for the time being, and I’m looking forward to sharing some thoughts with you here on occasion in a format that’s a little different for me. Everyone has
Through several reports (including Adrian Wojnarowski, ESPN, and Sam Amico, among many others) and now confirmed by the Cavaliers themselves, the Cleveland Cavaliers officially acquired Kevin Love today in exchange for Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, and Miami’s 2015 first round pick (which comes with top ten protection for this year and heads to Philadelphia in
We’re all anticipating some sort of announcement today regarding Kevin Love being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. With that expectation, the Minnesota Timberwolves have taken out an ad in the early Sunday edition of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, according to John Shipley. The ad has pictures of the last two number one picks in
Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn, Ryan Raburn, and Jason Giambi—four players who were all significant contributors on a 92-win playoff team last year that featured just twelve hitters1. This season, all four have spent time on the disabled list, and three of them have missed significant action2. So just how are the Cleveland Indians still standing and in the AL Wild
The Cavaliers’ wild and amazing summer just keeps on rolling. The latest development is that veteran Shawn Marion has agreed to join the wine and gold, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Unless the Mavericks agree to a sign-and-trade deal, Marion will be on board for the veteran minimum. Marion joins an incredibly deep and talented
The Battle of Ohio packed up and headed from Cleveland to Cincinnati last night. The Reds carried over their “big homers from non-homer hitters” act, and the Indians were silent with the bats until the eighth inning when it was far too late. When it looked like the Indians might just dip their toes into
Kevin Love. Andrew Wiggins. It’s been exhausting, and we’re looking at four more weeks of it as the No.1 overall pick’s contract clock ticks. Granted, it’s not “LeBron James” exhausting. It’s more nervous excitement. The Cavaliers are going to have three REALLY good players one way or another. I’ve been quite outspoken in my desire
There has been plenty of discussion about when and where the Cavaliers will have some high-profile matchups on national television, something that’s been sorely lacking for the last four seasons. There’s no doubt that LeBron’s return to Miami will be one of those signature games, but that’s more likely to be on the Christmas Day
After much debate that included the numbers 23, 6, and 32, and an Instagram post where James asked fans “23 or 6?” nine days ago, LeBron James has, err, decided. James will return to the number 23, which he wore for all seven seasons in Cleveland. James changed to No. 6 when he left Cleveland
The Cavaliers summer league team played two games over the weekend in Las Vegas. On Friday night, they beat the Milwaukee Bucks 70-68 in a one-versus-two matchup of the 2014 NBA Draft. Yesterday, they topped the Spurs by a 82-70 count. There was plenty to be pleased with for wine and gold fans. For years, the
Brian Windhorst of ESPN came out with the contract details for returning forward LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers this afternoon. James will sign just a two-year contract for $42.1 million with the option of opting out next summer. The structure of this deal allows James to capitalize on the expected jump of the salary
I spent nearly four years holding onto a lot of hard feelings when it came to LeBron James. A lot of us did. The first year could only be described as raw and open wound hatred. The second year, culminating with LeBron’s first championship, was acceptance. What Cleveland had been resisting had happened, and even
The Indians won in impressive fashion last night 7-3 over the Kansas City Royals, but it came at a cost. Michael Bourn left the game in the eighth inning after scoring and having his hamstring apparently tighten up on him. Sure enough, we heard the news today that Bourn will be headed to the disabled
We talked a little bit about the Cavaliers’ cap space last night when it was announced that Spencer Hawes was headed to the Clippers. Today, Yahoo’s news-breaking juggernaut Adrian Wojnarowski indicates that the Cavaliers and Rockets are working out deals to generate space to offer a full-max to LeBron James. Meanwhile, Rockets, Cavs pushing closer
The second of three Cavalier free agents that the team is not expected to re-sign agreed to terms yesterday. After C.J. Miles agreed to terms with the Indiana Pacers on a four-year deal, former Cavaliers center Spencer Hawes signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal will pay Hawes $23 million dollars over four years,
The Cavaliers have already had one heck of an offseason. They drafted Andrew Wiggins with the first pick and signed Kyrie Irving to a max extension. Those two moves alone have set them up to be relevant for hopefully the next 5-6 years. But, what about another big splash this offseason? Twenty-four hours ago when
It’s that blaring sound in your head, the noise that just won’t go away. Everywhere you go, every swipe of your thumb down your Twitter app of choice, it’s there, brandishing an intensely uncomfortable cacophony. You don’t know why it’s popular, but you know you want it dismissed as an afterthought as soon as possible.
In my second of three NBA Draft options for the Cavaliers with the top pick, I take a look at Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins. Last week, I analyzed film for Duke forward Jabari Parker, who impressed me immensely with his diverse offensive package. Next week, stay tuned for a breakdown of Kansas center Joel Embiid. Wiggins
After a whirlwind day for Cavaliers fans from all the John Calipari talk, Dan Gilbert and David Griffin won some brownie points with a large portion of the fan base. Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Cavaliers will interview former Cavalier point guard Mark Price for the head coaching position tomorrow.
