Pics: Nick Swisher has the city of Cleveland on his cleats


He may be the subject of mean tweets and tongue-in-cheek posts about a Brofari, but there’s no denying that Nick Swisher is all about the city of Cleveland. In a recent image captured and subsequently shared by Uni Watch’s Phil Hecken, we get a great look at Swisher’s New Balance 4040v2 Cleats that are brandished with

Rated R: Is LeBron James’ LRMR in Jeopardy?


Tension was indeed in the air this past weekend as two of LeBron James’ closest confidants were forced to travel in their own private jets following a brief spat.

Nike LeBron 12 Low USA LeBron James

When we last saw the low-top edition of Nike’s LeBron 12, it was entirely red and sold out before yours truly even knew they existed. Thankfully, in addition to restocking the aforementioned, The Swoosh is heading into the spring months with what appears to be an entire pipeline of low-top colorways for those who like

Sam Bradford Cleveland Browns

Another day, another member of the media confirming that it was in fact the Cleveland Browns who offered a first-round draft pick for former St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.

Forget the NBA playoffs; let’s realign the “target demographic”: While We’re Waiting…

Cleveland Sports

Happy Monday, kids. Is it pretty safe to say that March is going out like a lion? April will bring us crummy things like tax deadlines and such, but come this time next month, we’ll be fully ingrained in the NBA Playoffs, the MLB regular season and NFL Draft talk. Buckle up, you guys…It’s going


On the 25th anniversary of Michael Jordan dropping 69 on the Cavs

Michael Jordan 69 points Chicago Bulls Cleveland Cavaliers

What if I told you that Mark Price and Craig Ehlo would combine for 57 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists against Michael Jordan and the vaunted Chicago Bulls? And that John “Hot Rod” Williams, coming off of the bench, would produce a fantasy owner’s dream—23 points, 10 rebounds, five steals and two blocks. How about Scottie Pippen,


Browns to be subject to “severe” discipline for in-game texts

Cleveland Browns Texting

The Cleveland Browns have reportedly been made aware that their punishment for the texting scandal from the 2014 season will be handed down next week. Early reports from ESPN’s Adam Schefter claim that said punishments will be “severe.” Browns general manager Ray Farmer offered an apology for texting during games, an action which is in blatant violation of the


Indians ranked 25th in terms of MLB franchise value

Cleveland Indians

Good news if you’re an owner of a Major League Baseball team: Things have never been better! According to Forbes, the website and magazine for all things business, the average baseball team now worth a whopping $1.2 billion, 48% more than a year ago, the biggest year-over-year increase since they began tracking team values in


Meaningless April? Not this year: 2015 Indians Preview

Cleveland Indians Carlos Santana

On a cold, damp and dreary evening in the middle of April, 2013, Terry Francona stood in front of a high-top table that was perched in the middle of the Cleveland Indians’ room to take in questions from the local contingent. His team was 3-5, having just dropped back-to-back games to the New York Yankees,


Sports Illustrated Cover: Why not the Indians?

OK, let’s get this out of the way: The last time the Cleveland Indians made the cover of Sports Illustrated’s MLB Preview, Corey Snyder and Joe Carter’s smiling faces were supposed to lead to an “uprising” that ultimately saw the Tribe lose 101 games in 1987. Fast forward to 2015 and the Tribe has the


Could Jimmy Haslam swap the Browns for the Titans?

Jimmy Haslam Cleveland Browns

In what would be a move best made for a cable-based reality television show, could Jimmy Haslam Jr. swap his stake in the Cleveland Browns for that of the Tennessee Titans? According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, the sale of the Titans is becoming a reality. It’s long been rumored, but the wheels are apparently


Browns could be “front-runners” to land on HBO’s Hard Knocks

Cleveland Browns

Could the soap opera in Berea become a reality television show? It appears that the odds are better than many would have hoped, especially those who would play key on-screen roles. According to The Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci (who, as you may recall, previously worked for the Cleveland Browns’ official team website) the Browns are the front-runner to be


Video: More talk of LeBron James and David Blatt’s relationship

Cleveland Cavaliers Tyronn Lue David Blatt LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers obviously want to land in the second slot when it comes to the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Atlanta Hawks are leading the pack by a wide margin, but landing at No. 2 means that the road to the Eastern Conference Finals would involve teams like the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers and Milwaukee Bucks


Steve Nash’s retirement, AP Tests and the Air Max Zero: While We’re Waiting…

Cleveland Sports

Happy Monday, you guys. How are those brackets looking? My one—yes, I only did one this year—is pretty much shot after Virginia and Northern Iowa went down this past weekend. Some day, I’ll learn to not doubt Tom Izzo and Rick Pitino come tournament time. This, unfortunately, was not the year. Need some morning coffee-drinking/While We’re


Could the Browns trade up to No. 2 for Marcus Mariota?

Marcus Mariota

The Tennessee Titans are—believe it or not—a bigger mess than the Cleveland Browns. They also have a young quarterback who they feel could potentially be the future of the team, leading at least one NFL writer, CBS’ Jason La Canfora, to believe that while Oregon’s Marcus Mariota will go second overall in the upcoming NFL Draft,


Nike’s Kyrie 1 and LeBron 12 get the “Easter” treatment

Nike Kyrie 1 Kyrie Irving Easter

There are only a handful of days where NBA players get to deviate from their team colors when it comes to their choice of on-court footwear. Thankfully for those who wish to break away from the norm, and those companies who wish to provide another excuse to outfit them, Easter Sunday is one of those


Dethroned: LeBron knocked from the top spot in Bill Simmons’ trade value column

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

It was bound to happen. LeBron James would start to make too much money, have too much uncertainty surrounding his future, and—gulp—was bound to age beyond a point where his trade value would start to take a hit. Be that as it may, after eight years of having a firm, kung-fu grip on the top
