Tonight We Say Farewell to the 2011-12 Cleveland Cavaliers

Media Day seems like just last week

The last time the Cleveland Cavaliers played on a Thursday was January 12th, the 3rd week of the season. You see, Thursday nights are typically the big matchup nights. It’s the night TNT has TV rights and other than their premiere games, there’s usually only one or two overflow games. So it’s fitting, then, that

Cavaliers vs Bulls: Round One, Game Three Numbers and Words

Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Right now the Cavaliers are absolutely insane.
