Mark Price was the better non-Mormon version of Danny Ainge. He could shoot J’s better than Damon Stoudamire could smoke them and twice won the NBA three point shooting contest. He was a 90% free throw shooter (which is second all time) and was probably the best white shooter not named Larry Bird. Price was as good to the Cavaliers as Damon Jones was worthless to them.
Sort of like Wade Boggs wanting to go into the baseball Hall of Fame as a Tampa Devil Ray, Basketball Reference’s picture of Mark Price on his page shows him in a Golden State Warriors jersey. Price played about 4 seconds of his career in Golden State and about 500+ games in Cleveland. This makes perfect sense.
Here’s a vintage Sportscenter commercial staring Mark Price. Oh how things have changed.
The Cavaliers made the decision at the beginning of the year that swingman Christian Eyenga needed more work and opportunities to play than he would get in Cleveland. So they did what was expected and sent him to the D-League Canton Charge affiliate. Coach Scott said publicly that he wanted Eyenga to work on his defense, and I’m sure the whole organization would appreciate if...
In a recent report put together by Forbes which discussed the current state and value of NBA franchises as well as the successful television ratings which continue to go hand-in-hand with star-centric sporting events, we find that the Cleveland Cavaliers turned their biggest profit in the history of the franchise during the season which LeBron James was no longer a fixture within...
We don't know why Cleveland Cavalier owner Dan Gilbert's Twitter account posted a strange picture on his feed sometime late on Wednesday night. We do know that, whether that was his artful and William Eggleston-take on a middling life spent in hotel rooms, or the odd work of some Twitter hacker, we loved the shot. Even if it's since been deleted.
A random shot of something...
[Anderson Varejao] brings a toughness here and it’s contagious. It was contagious throughout the entire game, even through our bench. The bench is just as important as the starters, so it feels good to win. [...] I wasn’t really focused on my offense. I just wanted to help out my teammates. I only attempted six shots tonight and I have no problem doing that. I get my teammates...
Wait, we’re not tired of the “taking my [blank] to [blank]” jokes yet, are we?
The struggling Cleveland Cavaliers (6-9) must go to Miami where they will face the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Heat (11-5).
In some ways, both teams are having similar starts to their seasons as they had last year. The Cavaliers started off showing some spunk, winning games here and there...
Don’t call Kyrie Irving another LeBron James just because he’s also a Cleveland No. 1 pick. But if you want to call him another Chris Paul, that might be OK.
In fact, James said he sees plenty of similarities between the Cavaliers rookie point guard and Paul, the Clippers star point.
“He reminds me of CP early [...]
