Lamenting LeBron’s Likely Olympic Absence

Bob Donnan/USA TODAY Sports

Michael Johnson was my first favorite Olympian. Atlanta, 1996. He won gold in the 400 meters and set an Olympic record. Three days later he won gold in the 200 meters and set a world record — breaking his own in the process. He didn’t run so much as glide; his feet barely touched the ground.

Cavs Rewind: Top 15 Plays of the 2014-15 Season

Cleveland Cavaliers

I‘m not good at many things. I never had the hand-eye coordination, athleticism, or toughness to thrive at sports, and lacked the attention span, threshold for boredom, and determination to become proficient at any hobby that could be construed as a “talent.” Had I ever participated in a talent show, it would have just been me

The Cavs got trade exceptions. So what? WFNY FAQ

Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded Brendan Haywood, Mike Miller, and two future second-round picks to the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday night in exchange for, well, nothing really. They got some cash considerations, but the most impactful part of the return was two trade exceptions. Whereas the Cavs were on the hook for $10.5 million in salary to

It wasn’t always this good.

From Kid to Play: What’s Up with Shump’s Hair?

Iman Shumpert hair

This NBA offseason has gone on long enough. We’ve all wasted far too much air speaking, too many words writing, and too many brain cells thinking about the trivial stuff. LeBron wrote his name on a paper — big deal. Kevin Love took a community college writing class — whoopty-doo. Delly and Tristan want more

Mo Williams’ Long Road Trip

Scott Shaw/The Plain Dealer

On Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers agreed to terms with free agent point guard and former Cavalier Mo Williams. Mo only played in Cleveland from 2008-11, but he made a measurable impact and quickly became a fan favorite.

The NBA’s July moratorium period ends today, Thursday, July 9. This means that NBA players and teams can officially sign contracts and create binding agreements where previously there had only been handshakes and wink-wink deals. For the most part, this doesn’t affect too much for fans. Except in rare cases like Wednesday’s DeAndre Jordan madness between the

The Bowling Alley that Saved the Cavs’ Season


With the way their season ended in mid-June — within a few lucky bounces and a bad performance from healthy eventual champion Golden State Warriors — it’s hard to remember where the Cleveland Cavaliers were in early January. That “where” was a bad psychological place, the figurative equivalent of the dark and foreboding forest through which you

On Mo Williams, Regrets and Homecomings

Mo Williams Cleveland Cavaliers

Mo Williams was my first regret. The Cleveland Cavaliers were in the midst of one of the worst single seasons in NBA history and had just allowed Chase Budinger to drop 30 points on them as the Houston Rockets provided Cleveland with its 28th loss in its last 30 games. It was the night of
