Random thoughts following the Cavaliers 107-105 loss Friday night at Phoenix: Hey, how about Chris Grant? Remember on draft day, when everyone was criticizing the Cavs general manager for reaching for Dion Waiters with the No. 4 overall pick? I sure do, because Im one of the dorks who wrote it. In fact, that's exactly what I wrote. I wrote Waiters was a reach. I was wrong. Because truth is, after two weeks, Waiters is a top-three rookie, probably top two (along with New Orleans Anthony Davis). So lets give Grant some serious credit. While everyone was talking about Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bradley Beal or Harrison Barnes on draft night, Grant took a flyer on Waiters. We all had our doubts. But after Waiters scored 28 points in a win over the Clippers, then 23 vs. the Suns (on 9-for-13 shooting), its safe to say the kid has upside. This isnt intended to trash Beal, Barnes or the others. This was a deep draft and those guys should all have fine careers. But the Cavs needed a ...

Depsite defeats, Cavs give positive vibe

Positive thoughts on the Cavaliers following their 106-91 loss at Oklahoma City on Sunday: 1. It's all good. Honest. Yes, Im writing positive thoughts about the Cavs. No, Im not employed by the organization. Nor do I receive any special perks if I say only nice things about the team (nor should I). And anyone who reads my stuff regularly (that means you, mom) knows I can sometimes...

NBA Rookie Rankings: Fresh Meat

(Photo: AP/Gus Ruelas) Fresh meat. We all love it. Whether it’s the new guy at work, the new girl in your apartment complex, or the guy at the tailgate with the slab of baby-backs, everyone stares and starts asking questions fast. “Is he here to fire someone?” “Is she single?” “Is there any way we can trade him three natural lights for those ribs?” Once we get the information...

Irving...

Box Score: Thunder 106, Cavaliers 91

The OKC Thunder may not have James Harden, but they still packed more than enough punch. The Cavaliers played tough for three quarters in one of the NBA’s toughest venues, but Russell Westbrook’s barrage of buckets late in the third and early in the fourth proved to be too much as Westbrook’s 27 points led the Thunder’s 55% shooting effort as they pulled away from the Cavaliers...
