Happy Wednesday, Blawg Pound. And what a lovely Wednesday it is. I realize I often open this column with weather talk, and I’ve heard that in some circles weather talk is not considered the hippest subject on the block. Well I’ve got news for you, cool cats and chicks: weather is universal. We’re all in it.

Threat Level: Cavs ’ Potential First Round Foes

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cleveland Cavaliers were always going to make the playoffs. There was never a doubt about it. A massive influx in talent – particularly via a certain Akron, Ohio native — does wonders for an NBA team’s playoff odds. Even during the gloomiest, most despondent days of the season, when the Cavs hovered around the

Cleveland Cavaliers Behind the Box Score.

Whenever the Cavaliers have went to Indiana over the last half-decade, they have been met with crushing defeat. Tonight, it was pretty expected and explained away by the absence of both Kyrie Irving (shoulder) and LeBron James (rest, back). But still, Indiana remains a very rough place for the Cavaliers as they lost their tenth

Andrew Bynum is no longer with the Indiana Pacers

DSC_0396

The Indiana Pacers’ meltdown has been one of the biggest stories of the NBA’s second-half and playoffs thus far. After a 33-7 start to the year, the Pacers limped to the playoffs, barely squeaked past the weak 8-seed Atlanta Hawks and lost at home in Game 1 to the Washington Wizards. Almost quietly, if you

The Luol Deng era in Cleveland will last longer than the Andrew Bynum era ever did, but that’s not saying much. Bynum was traded to Chicago for Deng and subsequently cut. The stories started to come out about the end of Bynum’s time in Cleveland shortly thereafter. Bynum had been suspended by the team and

Pacers prove to be too much, overpower Cavs 89-74

NBA News: Andrew Bynum likely out Saturday against Indiana

In unsurprising news, Cavs center Andrew Bynum is likely to sit out tonight’s game on the road in Indiana. It’s the second half of a back-to-back, so it’s a natural move as Bynum continues with his recovery from multiple knee issues. The Akron Beacon Journal’s Jason Lloyd wrote in his game recap that Bynum is

To say I’m excited for the Cavaliers first post-Decision, non-tanking season would be an understatement. I have probably watched more preseason NBA basketball this year than at any other point in my life. Sure, 2013 marks the first time that every preseason game has been televised (about friggin time) but I snuck in a road trip

A bizarre thing occurred through the duration of Monday night’s telecast of the Cleveland Cavaliers and their home contest against the Indiana Pacers: The wonderful individuals at FOX Sports Ohio began tabulating how many dunks had been executed by each team. Dunks have become the go-to highlight for NBA fans; above-the-rim play is the reason
