You can’t teach height. That’s not only one of the most hackneyed basketball cliches known to human kind, it’s also absolutely 100% true. The Cavaliers could always use some more height, thus the signing of Kendrick Perkins for the stretch run a season ago. As Perkins still sits unsigned in NBA free agency, the Cavaliers
You go to sleep one day with an awful Cleveland Cavaliers team in your town and you wake up some weeks later to a so-called super team.

The wheel o’ rumors keeps on spinning, spinning, spinning, and the latest stop has the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets talking about a trade built around seven-time All-Star shooting guard Joe Johnson, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

Klay Thompson took a shot to the head from the knee of Rockets forward Trevor Ariza during the Warriors’ series with the Houston Rockets.

The Cleveland Cavaliers may have forward-center Anderson Varejao at their disposal during the NBA Finals. Though thought to be done for the season, ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst stated that the team will potentially have Varejao at the ready for their trip to Oakland next week, only to be deployed if the situation gets dire. On his most recent edition

The 2015 Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t pretending to do photo shoots on the bench before games, and there’s been almost constant chatter on how well or not well Kevin Love is fitting in. Despite all that, it’s hard to argue that the Cavaliers have some pretty good chemistry. This latest goofy instagram from Anderson Varejao is
With the wine and gold quickly coming down the home stretch of the regular season and maintaining their spot in the top tier of the NBA, fan favorite and injured center Anderson Varejao would obviously love to make a comeback for the (hopefully long) playoff run. With a torn Achilles, Varejao was ruled out for the
We all know what the Cavaliers traded for Timofey Mozgov, but we haven’t seen him play for the Cavs just yet. Regardless, this is the NBA and it’s important to decide whether a trade was worth it or not as soon as possible. At Pro Basketball Talk, Kurt Helin and Jenna Corrado discuss it and
Welcome to the Friday edition of WWW. I hope you had a nice week, but I surely didn’t expect it to have this many fireworks… The Cavs made trades… Look, nobody ever said it was going to be easy. If there’s one thing we learned from LeBron leaving to join the Miami Heat in 2010,
Cleveland Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao underwent an MRI on Wednesday, and received a terrible Christmas gift in the way of a torn Achilles tendon, as reported by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. The injury “likely will end Varejao’s season.” Though non-contact, the Brazilian big man landed awkwardly in the third quarter of Tuesday’s 125-104 win over the
Last week, I shared five different top-five lists as a way to ring out 2014. I wrote that post not knowing if I’d do another While We’re Waiting this year since I usually take Thursdays and Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are Thursdays this year. But looky here, I’m back! I’m subbing for TD
When we last met in the Cavalier Film Room, we talked about Kyrie Irving’s defense. This time, we’re finally going to get into some of David Blatt’s offense. I’m going to start with what has become pretty obvious: Kevin Love is a really good first quarter player. Not only is Love an excellent first quarter
The Cleveland Cavaliers played against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. That means that they played against the trash talking, always maligning, Hall of Fame-bound and sadly declining Kevin Garnett. Cavalier supporters have seen a lot of Garnett over the years, most notably during the Boston-Cleveland Conflict of 2007-2010. This, of course, included the beautful

Boom Boom, Pau.
The Cleveland Cavaliers played like a turd sandwich in Portland last night, which is fitting since yesterday was Election Day.1 I don’t want to rehash the gory details of the game any more than I want to hand count voting ballots (Kirk handled that bit of dirty work), so in lieu of that, I want to look
