With Wednesday’s flurry of long-term contracts, fans of the Cleveland Cavaliers now have a clearer picture of what the team will look like during the 2015-16 season. As many hoped, it will look very much like the team that finished last regular season on a 33-3 tear, thanks in no small part to Dan Gilbert’s
Two hundred thirty million dollars. That is the approximate amount of money Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert shelled out in player contracts just on day one of NBA free agency. The Cavs reportedly agreed with forward Kevin Love on a five-year, $110 million deal and guard Iman Shumpert on a four-year, $40 million contract, are near agreement with
Happy Monday, you guys. Are you feeling empowered? Are you feeling as if you have the ability to flip the script on the standard, widely accepted flow chart of life? So much has been made as of late regarding the Cavaliers, LeBron James and the allocation of power. All season long, we heard that James was
It could only be described as chaos. The playing floor of Quicken Loans Arena was covered in notecard-size wine and gold-colored confetti. Cavalier players were slowly filing off, having taken countless photographs with teammates, friends, and family, every one of them with an NBA Finals hat perched atop their head. General manager David Griffin weaved
Dan Gilbert would love to have an NBA All-Star weekend in Cleveland, but the NBA says that the Humongotron is not enough when it comes to upgrading Quicken Loans Arena. According to Chris Haynes of NEOMG, the only thing that would prevent the city from hosting an NBA All-Star game is failing to make required
If you follow Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert (@cavsdan) on Twitter, you might have seen a curious tweet on Sunday afternoon during the Cavs’ win over the Chicago Bulls. Gilbert often responds to fans, but did he give us a hint at a new set of Cavalier uniforms for next season? Here’s the tweet that raised
Dan Gilbert and Jimmy Haslam have never shied away from making big moves and the resulting controversy. This time, however, the duo may have gone too far. According to ESPN.com’s Adarn Shefter and Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnaroski, working together in an unprecedented cross-platform co-investigation, the Cleveland sports owners have been holding mascot fights between Cavaliers mascot
Another day, another NBA list put together by ESPN. And just as we’d expect given the Cavs’ sterling performance over the past several months, they come in at…sixteenth!? Yep, No. 16 it is. The latest ranking evaluates each NBA franchise’s front office, with ownership, team presidents/GMs, and coaches all factoring into the process. For what
Last Thursday’s trade deadline was a fairly quiet affair for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sure, you can discuss the merits of Kendrick Perkins and his presence as a fourth big for this streaking team. But largely, the most impactful Cavs news from last week was a non-transaction. After some recent speculation from the blogosphere, the Cavs
NBA fans voted in LeBron James as an Eastern Conference All-Star starter, but did not vote in Kyrie Irving despite his start last season and his reigning All-Star Game MVP honor. That snub will likely cost Irving – and by definition, save the Cleveland Cavaliers – around $9-10 million over the course of the point
A few weeks back, we linked to a profile of Michele Roberts, the NBA players’ union executive director, which painted her as a no-bullshit firecracker who was ready to put the union on her back and lead them to greener pastures than they could ever imagine—the kind with commas and zeros and all kinds of
Winning an NBA Championship: Priceless
The Cleveland Cavaliers held their annual Wine and Gold United members meeting Thursday night at the still super new Cleveland Convention Center. Quicken Loans Arena PA announcer Olivier Sedra presided over the show, celebrating Cavs fandom and ginning up even more enthusiasm for the coming season. The meeting included a lot of cheap heat—fans beckoned to stand and
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
A new throwback?
Two out of three is pretty bad.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are in the unique position of having 100% knowledge of ticket demand. And it’s large.
Happy Tuesday WFNY! I have to be honest, for sports fans like myself, the period from MLB post-All Star break to the start of the NFL season can be a bit of a drag. It’s not that I dislike watching the Indians. In fact, I have them on right now as I am writing this
Lost in all of the news surrounding LeBron James’ return to Cleveland was official word that the team inked All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to his contract extension. While the deal is set to conceivably keep Irving in Wine and Gold through 2020, the former No. 1 pick can opt out after his fourth season.
I spent nearly four years holding onto a lot of hard feelings when it came to LeBron James. A lot of us did. The first year could only be described as raw and open wound hatred. The second year, culminating with LeBron’s first championship, was acceptance. What Cleveland had been resisting had happened, and even
