Happy Thursday, WFNYers! I’m pinch-hitting for Jacob today as he learns how to quack properly out in Oregon.. or something like that. Speaking of which, let’s start with that Jacob guy. Yesterday, Krossover named him one of the #RisingStars in Sports Analytics. Most everybody around these parts already knew that, but it’s really neat to
Boom Boom, Pau.
After reaching an offensive low point on Wednesday night in Utah when the wine and gold had a franchise-low six assists, the Cavaliers made a specific effort to share the basketball more effecitvely. The Cavs had 25 assists and seven players reach double figures as they held a 21-point lead and had to hold on
Oof. What a kick in the pills. After getting absolutely blasted by the Blazers last night, the Cavaliers came into Utah and turned in another putrid defensive performance. An impressive comeback from down 16 on the heels of James and Irving offensively came out just short as Gordon Hayward delivered the game-winning jumper as time
I think most of us rational fans anticipated some bumps in the road in the early part of this season. Opening night was an outlier, a once-in-a-lifetime atmosphere that could have short-circuited anyone. But, there’s no other way to describe the second half tonight other than the Blazers steamrolling the Cavaliers, particularly in the fourth
Cleveland Cavaliers: 114 Chicago Bulls: 108 (Overtime) Box Score After a disappointing opening night where LeBron James and everybody played pretty tight, the Cavaliers had an incredibly formidable task on their hands: going into Chicago against their biggest threat in the Eastern Conference and trying to come out with a win. The Bulls are
And we’re back! (in more ways than one!) After a season of huh and a whirlwind summer, we’re about ready to embark on the Peak Cavs era. As always before a Cleveland sports season starts, the WFNY brain trust gathers to give their thoughts on some of the key elements of the upcoming season. We also
Well, here we are. After a season of huh and a whirlwind summer, we’re about ready to embark on the Peak Cavs era. As always before a Cleveland sports season starts, the WFNY brain trust gathers to give their thoughts on some of the key elements of the upcoming season. We also do our best
Last week, FOX sports national posted a Buzzfeed-style flipbook of the NFL uniforms, ranking them 32-1. I was shocked to see the Cleveland Browns come up first on that list at dead last, but then again, maybe I shouldn’t be all that surprised. The Browns have had their critics in the new era of “everybody
Last week, Dan Gilbert tweeted it. And later that same week, the Cleveland Cavaliers officially announced that they have added a second alternate jersey to their arsenal for the upcoming season. Yes, the wine and gold will have a navy alternate as well their gold to pair with the primary white home and wine road. It would seem
The Cleveladn Browns released their inactive list this morning ahead of their AFC North clash with the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. As expected, the defensive line is quite depleted with Ahtyba Rubin, Phil Taylor, and Billy Winn all inactive for this game, leaving them with only Desmond and Armonty Bryant and the seldom-used to this point
Finally, some stability in Cleveland.
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
