Maybe there’s something to this whole Lesanity thing after all?

The Cavaliers took a lead into halftime, then came out cold in the 2nd half and saw the Bobcats come back and take the lead. From there, Lester Hudson took over. With Cavs owner Dan Gilbert sitting in with Fred and AC in the TV broadcast, Lester once again showed his boss why he belongs on the Cavaliers roster.

Hudson finished the game with 25 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists in this his 3rd straight game with 23+ points. Granted, those games were against all lottery teams in Toronto, New Jersey, and Charlotte, but still, you can’t take anything away from the way this guy is playing right now.

Overall the Cavaliers had 5 players in double digits, with the old guys Parker and Jamison chipping in 19 and 17 points respectively. All in all a nice win for the wine and gold.

Quote: Byron Scott No Longer Surprised by Lester Hudson

After you see it for the second game, you don’t really get surprised the third and fourth and fifth game. I know what he is. I know what type of player he is. I know he can put big numbers on the scoreboard given the opportunity. That part of his game I know. The other part is trying to get him to understand (that) on the defensive end he has to get better and I thought tonight...

The Lester Hudson experience, and that Hoop Dreams story personified

It's that other tale, sometimes told, that I'll always find more compelling than the one traditionally summarized in an NBA Boxscore. From Rick Telander and Darcy Frey, to Arthur Agee and William Gates, that hoop dreams story personified is one that will never sound repetitive to me. When truly realized, and put on display for all of us to see, however long that moment lasts...

Where’s Lester Hudson’s “Linsanity?”

On February 6, the shorthanded New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz at home. The team’s two best players were inactive, dealing with various issues ranging from personal to health. The hero of the day — and subsequent weeks — was a hardwood vagabond, a scrappy guard who had been bounced from multiple NBA franchises, left to trudge through the murk and muck of the NBDL. Jeremy...

The Legend of Lester Hudson Lives On

Sunday evening provided excellence of all shapes and sizes. Beautiful outdoor venues and empty arena seats. Pine needle-based approaches and game-saving three-pointers. Leader boards and lottery balls. Consonants and vowels. Bubba Watson battled Louis Oosthuizen in a sudden-death playoff at Augusta National; both golfers held off a charging Phil Mickelson who — if not for a complete...

Cavs' Hudson promises resolve

Lester Hudson hasnt always been as aggressive an NBA player as he was this past weekend. In fact, there was a time when the newest Cavaliers guard kind of felt like he should just stay out of the way. I was way too timid, Hudson told FOX Sports Ohio of his previous NBA stint, which lasted a combined 36 games in Boston, Memphis and Washington. He also bounced around the NBA D-League...

Dan Gilbert Is Angrily Typing In Comic Sans About The Guy Who Hospitalized His Dog

In extremely important sports news to me, Cleveland.com is reporting that Cavaliers mascot “Moondog” was taken to the hospital after a good natured game of pre-game man-to-dog roughhousing got out of control and nearly cost him an eye. The injury came courtesy of Indiana Pacers forward David West, so of course when I read “Cavs mascot sent to hospital by West” my first...
