Baldwin Wallace’s basketball gym was wet with the shooting stroke of Cavaliers All Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who took another step towards his stated goal for the season of becoming the best player in the NBA by flashing his buttery feather smooth stroke over and over, stealing the breaths from spectators,  breaking imagination bones.   A vision, perfect balance, perfect time, perfect shots.   CANADIAN SUPERBATTLE OF THE POWER FORWARDS BENNETT AND THOMPSON (DAVID LIAM KYLE - GETTY IMAGES) It’s the Wine & Gold Scrimmage, an annual free game played for free for fans of a team that has had virtually no time to install the offensive system of the new Mike Brown led coaching staff.   The defense, counted on to improve after finishing close to or last in virtually every statically category last season,  is far from ready to strangle the rest of the league with Brown’s signature formulas.  The offensive abilities of individuals were spotlighted, but there remains no e...

Like I said, we’ve got a young team, so it’s the first time where they may have a coach like that. He’s never going to change. That’s the way he coaches. I think he’s doing a great job.” – New...

Thoughts on debut of Jack, Clark and Bennett in Cavs Wine & Gold Game

I knew the Cleveland Cavaliers significantly upgraded their roster long before arriving at Baldwin Wallace for the 2013 installment of the Wine and Gold Scrimmage.
