Cavalier Thoughts: Is the Run-and-Gun One-and-Done?

JJ Hickson always referred to his ability to get to the rim as his “bread and butter.”  Despite all of the work he put in to improve his jump shot, all of the self-imposed goals designed to help him rebound the basketball, and his game-saving blocked shot against the Los Angeles Clippers, Hickson’s game was always

Introducing the Inaugural WFNY Cleveland Sports Awards

We’re calling them the Woofnies. Quick back-story. My daughter (5 years old at the time) jumps in my lap as I’m writing one evening. She takes a look at the site logo and says “Dad what’s woofnie?” Apparently that’s how you pronounce WFNY. Each day we will present one Woofnie chosen by the staff here

Re-Sign or Release: JJ Hickson

Back in May, 2008, we featured a little series called “Re-Sign or Release” where we went through every player on the Cavaliers roster and turned to the readers to see what they would do if they were the general manager of the Wine and Gold and – hypothetically, of course – all of the players

On a loss to Drew Gooden’s Bucks that keeps Cavs from winning 20, and other things

The Cavs lost to the Bucks last night 108-101.  I hesitate to get too much further into the details here though because I’m not sure anybody cares.  The Cavaliers certainly didn’t last night. They came into the game uninspired and terrible, lost the first quarter by 12, got down by 16 at the break, and nothing they did really mattered

You Can’t Really Expect the Cavs to Lose on Purpose

We officially need to talk about the Cavs, losing and the lottery.  Last night the Cavaliers won back-to-back games as Minnesota took over the “lead” for the number of ping pong balls in the lottery with a loss to Phoenix.  Immediately after Baron Davis and the Cavs closed out the Raptors the whining started on Twitter

What Baron Davis Has Meant to the Cavs’ Frontcourt

Editor’s Note: Craig will be coming up shortly with what last night’s Cavaliers win means in the grand scheme of all things crystal ball.  For now, even more from me regarding the Baron Davis Effect.

Cavs Fall in DC on Record Setting Night for Wiz

The Cavs had an opportunity, albeit slim, to have an undefeated weekend on the road.  The schedule featured a terrible Wizards team without star PG John Wall and a Knicks team that the Cavs have owned this season – owned. One of the Cavaliers’ five road wins came in Washington earlier this season – part

Cavs Fall Just Short, Energy And Effort Still There

You didn’t expect them to win. Coming off the most emotional victory of the season, nobody gave the Cavaliers much of a chance against a hungry Charlotte team fighting for a playoff spot. The Cavaliers have been terrible in these situations all season long. Aside from the early season three game winning streak, (wow does

Cavaliers NBA Draft Talk: Could position logjams force offseason trades?

In what has become a lost season for Cavalier fans, the lone beacon of hope has been the pair of lottery picks that the team will have in the upcoming June draft.

Cavs’ Additional Size Falls Short in OT

After showing questionable effort in nights past, Cavs head coach Byron Scott mixed things up by countering New Jersey’s Brook Lopez with a seven-footer of his own in Ryan Hollins.

Boykins Blasts Cavs Once Again

On the 2010-11 season, Cleveland native Earl Boykins is averaging 8.3 points per game on 45 percent shooting for the Milwaukee Bucks.  When Boykins faces the Cavaliers, the 5-foot-5-inch guard steps up his game, averaging 13.5 points on 70.6 (yes, 70.6) percent shooting. Of all the teams Boykins has face at least twice this season,

Chris Paul Suffers Concussion, but Cavs Still Fall to Hornets, 96-81

Through the month of February, the Cleveland Cavaliers were ranked third in all of the NBA in assists with 24.4 dimes per game.  A product of ball-movement and execution, the Wine and Gold are frequently reminded pregame to play selfless basketball.
