What a hectic week to be a fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers. It seems that almost every single day brings along a new news cycle, and this week has brought along its fair share of hectic news.
From the Kris Humphries-Brooklyn Nets rumors to the possible Luis Scola waiver claim, to the more recent Andrew Bynum murmurs and recent Kyrie Irving injury, there’s been plenty to talk about in Cavs town lately.
Tonight, the Cavaliers begin summer league play in Las Vegas at 8:30 p.m. against the Charlotte Bobcats. With this in mind, I thought this would be a great time to round up some of the recent rumors and my thoughts on the team for this Sunday afternoon.
This one hurt. The news came in slowly but surely last night, and we’ve learned the upcoming fate of our star point guard: out 6-8 weeks with a fractured bone in his hand. Let’s start with some good news and bad news.
Good: He likely won’t miss training camp at all. He certainly should be perfectly ready for the preseason an...

Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving has been in the headlines for getting humiliated by Kobe Byrant in a smack-talk session but now he is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
While in Las Vegas for the 2012 Summer League, Irving fractured his right hand during a team practice. X-rays were performed and confirmed he did suffer a fracture which will cause him to sit out the...

The Phoenix Suns were awarded the rights to Luis Scola on Sunday by submitting the highest bid for the free agent forward, according to multiple reports. Scola was waived by the Rockets on Friday via the amnesty provision, and several teams, including Dallas and Cleveland, submitted bids for Scola, according to NBA.com. The Suns had to submit a bid of at least $3.3 million per...
Barely an offseason day has gone by without the Cavaliers having been in the middle of some hot rumor. Some have been true, some otherwise, and its hard to determine which is which.For the Cavs, even what we know to be true gets a little twisted.The biggest and most believable news centers around Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving, the NBAs reigning Rookie of the Year and face of the...
The Phoenix Suns have won the bidding for forward Luis Scola and used the amnesty clause to cut forward Josh Childress.

But the Rockets used the amnesty option to waive Scola on Friday. The rugged...
Andrew Bynum is eligible for a three-year, $60 million extension.
Yeah, we all know at the age of 20 we are invincible, we think pounding our hand into a padded wall after making a bad play isn’t going to hurt our super-human bodies. Well, that wasn’t the case for the Cavaliers point guard and Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving. Irving is learning the hard way he is going to have to look after his health a little better than he did yesterday after...
Dwight Howard is the most dominant force in the NBA at his position. I say that with all due respect to Andrew Bynum the 24 year old up and coming beast that is the current Laker center and arguably the second best center in the league.
Bynum is no Howard. This should go without saying, but the proof is in the pudding to coin the old cliche’.
You say, look at those post...
Thanks to house-cleaning efforts associated with the Houston Rockets' inspired quest to acquire Dwight Howard, the Phoenix Suns were able to land another power forward.
According to reports, the Suns have won a waiver auction that will deliver 32-year-old Luis Scola to Planet Orange. Scola, who was on the Rockets' payroll for another 21 million over the next three seasons...
