Box Score: Cavaliers 103 Knicks 120

Well, the Cavaliers played a good first half. And then everything fell apart in the 2nd half. Some outstanding defense from Tyson Chandler, some great 3-point shooting from Steve Novak, and a nice distribution of scoring among all their players helped the Knicks run away with this one. Really just a sad display of poor

Anthony Parker sweepstakes heat up, and something about Tyson Chandler

Cavaliers fans sometimes find themselves frustrated that the Maccabi Tel-Aviv faithful were treated to the Anthony Parker basketball playing glory days instead of us. We take our anger out on AP directly for this too, and it’s unfair.

Cavs culture of losing continues…10 in a row and looking for more

A number of things have come to light recently to prove my previous perceptions of the Cavaliers over the last five years – both individually as players, as well as collectively as an organization – to be quite false. As I watched the Cavs diligently work towards extending they’re losing streak from 9 to 10 games last night against Indiana, another of

David Letterman Has Cleveland’s Back

LeBron James To Become Mute on Free Agency Talk……Probably (Maybe?)

As if last night’s game with Orlando didn’t have enough talking points as it was (including a ridiculous discussion about LeBron’s Yankees shoes….but that’s another story for another time), LeBron James found a new way to keep his name in headlines with regards to his impending free agency.
