Can’t resist The Trist: Thompson making an immediate impact in Wine and Gold

Flashback to June 23rd, 2011 and yours truly watching the NBA Draft at my college house in Columbus. Knowing that Kyrie Irving was a near certainty and still basking in the warmth of our new point guard on board, the number four came as a shock to me. The pick: Tristan Thompson, the 6’9″ freshman power forward out of Texas. Admittedly, I had not researched Thompson nearly as...

Irving’s would-be game-winner spins out, Pacers take over in OT

A slice through the lane off an Anderson Varejao screen, open hardwood between him and the bucket, Kyrie Irving may have been just a little surprised that he was so wide open.

Ramon Sessions is a nice fit in Cleveland - Cavaliers Comment of the Day

"I think the Cavaliers should definitely look into locking up Sessions. He is a tremendous point guard and would be an extraordinary backup, as he's also a proven capable starter.

Cavaliers Show Peek of Princeton Offense

It was poetic. It was fluid.  It even led to a Byron Scott smile. One placed roughly one foot above a set of crossed arms, but a smile is most definitely a smile. The first quarter featured a young Cavalier team trading largely in slop, ultimately resulting in double-digit turnovers and a few head-scratching moments vis a vis extra, perhaps unnecessary pass attempts.
