It’s amazing how quickly things can change in the NBA. A few weeks ago, Jeremy Lin was the talk of the town. Linsanity was in full swing. The kid was getting shoe deals, standing ovations in Madison Square Garden and a slew of racist headlines. Times were good. But now, it’s like no one knows he even exists anymore. Go under the knife for a necessary knee surgery and your celebrity dies in a fiery explosion. Linsanity is dead. Hudsanity, however, is just beginning. Lester Hudson has been throwing down ridiculous numbers off the bench in Cleveland since Kyrie Irving suffered his shoulder injury, and he’s got the same rags-to-riches story Lin has. He played in China and in the D-League before getting his shot, and now he’s the proud owner of 15-point, 4.4-rebound and 4-assist per game averages. The Cavaliers play on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. If you’re in the fantasy playoffs, you’re going to want Hudsanity on your squad for the weekend. BUY Greivis Vasquez – Jarrett Jack is li...

Hudson’s Leaving His Mark In Cleveland

There’s something about an unsung hero that makes winning extremely satisfying. Maybe it’s the surprise of it all. Maybe it’s the out-of-the-blue extraordinary performances that are displayed by the unexpected—for a team that’s unexpected.

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...

Scoreboard mistake had the Cavs losing 193-4 in the 1st quarter!

Everybody knows that the Cleveland Cavaliers are bad, but the scoreboard operator took this notion to a whole new level during last nights contest with the Indiana Pacers. If you turned on the Cavs-Pacers game early in the first quarter, you would have learned that the struggling Cavaliers where losing 193 to 4 just minutes into the game! Sadly, to many Cavs fans a 189 point deficit...

On the Cavs, Tanking and Lester Hudson

"Remember Lester, only make game TYING buzzer beaters" With their the overtime loss to the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, the Cavs are officially out of the playoff race. This was expected. The Cavs are in the middle of their rebuild and are in full tank mode. I wouldn’t consider myself “happy” that the Cavaliers lost, but I do tend to think of these late season...

Cavs Report: Hudson takes long way to NBA

Lester Hudsons road to the Cavaliers was hardly paved with gold. Hot coals and bare feet would be more like it. From about the time he hit college, the odds were against Hudson in the NBA. Or at least, against Hudson having made the impact he has for the Cavs so far. Hudson is a native of Memphis and began his college career at something called Southwest Tennessee Community College...
