Cavaliers coach Mike Brown has taken to calling globe-trotting All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving "The Pied Piper'' of Cleveland basketball.

Irving smiled as reporters told him about the piper who rid Hamelin of rats and then after the townspeople refused to pay him for that service children. Acknowledging that it might not be the best analogy Irving laughed and said of Brown ''He made it so I guess I'm The Pied Piper of the team.'' What Brown meant was teammates have been following Irving all over the country to work out -- from Las Vegas to Los Angeles to Miami and New York. "I've been forcing everybody to meet me in different places and work out...

Mike Brown’s return to Cleveland

Mike Brown is seen as a defensive guru in the NBA, but what can he do for a team’s offense? In the 2008-09 season, Brown’s coaching helped the Cleveland Cavaliers to have a league best in opponents points per game, as well as a league leading 66-16 record.

Three random guys got more than they bargained for when they challenged Cleveland Cavaliers forward Alonzo Gee and two of his friends to a pickup basketball game.

Cleveland Cavaliers in the ESPN Top 500 list

A little over halfway through ESPN’s rankings of the top 500 NBA players, and the Cavaliers have been represented  4 times, though mostly in the top of the bottom half (unsure if this is a good thing) with Cleveland rookie Carrick Felix being the only one falling lower than 315 (right below Sergey Karasev, another rookie, who finds himself in the #314 spot) , taking the #472 position...
