Cavalier fans hoped the return of LeBron James would spark the team and reverse the team’s recent losing ways. James played almost 37 minutes in his return on Tuesday night and scored 33 points, but Cleveland could not top the Phoenix Suns. The 107-100 loss was Cleveland’s sixth in a row and dropped the Cavaliers below .500
Isn’t this fun, you guys?
I blocked it out of my memory, but I was reminded that the Cavaliers lost to the Kings on Sunday night by 44 points. After that effort, a sight for sore eyes in the depleted Los Angeles Lakers showed up next on the schedule in this 5-game West Coast swing. But, it was anybody’s guess
It appears that the potential Andrew Bynum-to-Los Angeles deal that was reported this week is on life support. ESPN.com’s resident Cavaliers beat NBA writer reports that while the deal which would send Pau Gasol to Cleveland in exchange for the cap space which would be cleared by waiving center Andrew Bynum is no longer progressing and that Chris
Pau Gasol is the latest rumored trade candidate for the Cavaliers, according to Brian Windhorst and Ramona Shelburne at ESPN.com.

If you thought that 2012 was one crazy year in the world of Cleveland Sports, 2013 proved that there is rarely a dull moment. There were good times and bad, hirings and firings, wins and losses, and appearances in postseasons and courtrooms. As the year comes to a close, like we have done the last five
Former Cleveland Cavaliers small forward Shannon Brown was recently in Latvia where he participated in a dunk contest. Brown, formerly of the “Let Shannon Dunk” campaign back in 2010, decided to attempt a dunk over a few nearby fans. It is safe to say that the outcome, given the way Brown initially disappears off of
When Earl Clark was the the No. 14 pick in the 2009 draft, he probably never expected to be in this position four years later. But here he is now, a 25-year-old with the opportunity to provide depth and length to the young Cleveland Cavaliers. Cavs general manager Chris Grant still has more work to
After rampant speculation over the past few days, it appears the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached a deal with free agent forward Earl Clark. Sean Deveny of Sporting News had the report first as a two-year, $9 million deal between Clark and the Cavs. TNT’s David Aldridge followed up in reporting that the second year is
This might be nothing more than due diligence, but Bob Finnan (by way of HOOPSWORLD) is reporting that the Cavaliers will explore the possibility of signing free agent center Andrew Bynum. Bynum was an utter disaster for the Philadelphia 76ers as the 25-year-old didn’t suit up for the team one time in his lone season
