A handful of LeBron James-based shoes is to be expected. But rivaling James ever-so quietly is his teammate, both on the Cavaliers and with Nike, in point guard Kyrie Irving. Earlier this month, a pair of see-through Air Force 1 lows with Irving’s trademark “K” on the heels were released in Cavaliers and Duke Blue
Is the recipe for victory, once reduced to its most integral grail ingredients, merely toughness and discipline? Several members of the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to feel so as they welcome the Washington Wizards into Quicken Loans Arena just five days after being soundly beaten in Washington, 91-78. “If you look at our season so far,
Today should be a good day at WFNY, folks. We’ve got some of the new kids and infrequent writers in charge with Craig on vacation and Scott on a work trip. Hope you can put up with us for the day. Assorted Cavs-Spurs thoughts: The Cavs, a currently mediocre team, lost by two points to
San Antonio Spurs (7-4) 92 Cleveland Cavaliers (5-5) 90 Box Score On the eve of tonight’s showdown with the San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers star and prodigal son LeBron James spent some time gushing over the team that, other than maybe the Boston Celtics, has been the biggest foil of his career. The Spurs, the
In the latest NBA Power Rankings on ESPN, the Cavs are up to number six from number 14, which is good. But, they do point out something that is a bit troubling even as the Cavaliers are on a four-game winning streak and as LeBron James picked up Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors:
How fitting, it seems, that in same building that once served him enough demons that Constantine could be called to exorcise them, LeBron James gave us his first virtuoso performance of this young NBA season. In Boston for work, I bought a ticket to see the Cleveland Cavaliers play the Celtics at TD Garden on
Wow. I certainly didn’t expect to see the Cavaliers bring this type of effort against the Hawks at home on the second night of a back-to-back where they looked atrocious on defense. The Cavaliers put up one of the most impressive offensive displays these two eyes have ever seen. The Cavaliers end-to-end fricasseed the Hawks
In the early going of this season, I expected the Cavs to play down to some of their lesser opponents. I figure that if you’re going to keep the heavy underdog in it until the final two minutes, that team is going to find a way to pull out the win a decent chunk of
WFNY’s Andrew Schnitkey already wrote the Behind the Box Score for Monday’s 118-111 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. But I thought I’d chime in this morning with a few additional stats notes on just how impressive the Cleveland Cavaliers offense was last night. The Cavs had a 128.0 offensive rating, per NBA.com/stats For context,
What goes around comes around.
New Orleans Pelicans 111 Cleveland Cavaliers 118 [Box Score] On Saturday, the New Orleans Pelicans went to San Antonio and knocked off the defending NBA Champions to move to 3-2 on the season. I only mention this because people might not realize that the Pelicans are not the same team of recent years. Time will
After a week on the road, the Cleveland Cavaliers return home tonight to face one of the most-discussed sleeper teams in the NBA, the New Orleans Pelicans. With Saturday’s road upset of the Spurs, Anthony Davis’ squad proved they’ll be a disruptive force this season. While being back home is nice, the style difference will
The 2014-2015 Cleveland Cavaliers, deemed by many the favorites for the NBA Championship, and deemed by many more to be title contenders, had a less than ideal 1-1 start. Then last week, the Trail Blazers humbled the Cavs in Portland 82-101 and the Utah Jazz escaped at the buzzer on a miraculous Gordon Hayward fadeaway
Leaked sneaker photos are the new crop circle.
The Cleveland Cavaliers ended their road trip on a positive note beating the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. That was a relief to a lot of Cavs fans that were gripping pretty hard from the news of the last few days. After the Cavaliers lost to the Trailblazers it was reported that LeBron James and Kyrie
This is normal now. We knew this it would be like this with LeBron James returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, bringing with him championship expectations and the accompanying media circus, but that doesn’t make it any easier to handle. Each loss brings the sky that much closer to Earth. The narrative can be overwhelming. Kyrie
I’m always really proud when I get to work alongside someone and they go on to bigger and better things. Sharing our epic email chains at WFNY with Brendan Bowers was a treat and I love that he’s now working even more with SLAM magazine. Anyway, I asked Brendan to come on the podcast and
It’s going to be a long season, you guys.
Strap in, folks because this ride is seemingly about to get bumpy. Although you can always say that when a team isn’t winning. The Cleveland Cavaliers had an impressive win over the Chicago Bulls, but they’re definitely not winning—and last night’s gut-punch loss on the last shot of the game to the Utah Jazz won’t
Well that didn’t go as planned…
